The cute one with the bunny chasing after the cat? Yeah, so parts 3 and 4 (of 5 total parts) have been released. Not sure when 3 and 4 were released, but I think it as pretty recent.

Click English, then amalloc.

Be warned, part 4 gets dark and not as happy...

Colors!

This is spiffy~ Different arrangement of colors, so you can pick a nice looking color scheme, I guess?

Not as thick as I'd like, but maybe I could be creative and make it larger, using twice the amount of ribbons?

Found the spiffy Origami book as well. Am probably ordering it.

Props to Michael for covering for the hardware engineer. I'm just amused that they were able to sneak the server back in. And then say, "Oh, we just rebooted it".

Facebook information could be sniffable: http://www.theregister.com/2007/06/26/sniffing_private_facebook_info/

It only implies that someone could guess and check to see if you have some specific words on your profile. So they would have to know you, and then maybe have something specific they're looking for. Which could or could not be a problem. It's a bit like bruteforcing a password: trying different combinations over and over, but unless bruteforcing the password, a correct guess only tells you that it's correct, and does not grant you access to the account.

Generic Valentines sketch:

(prompted by Ting's request for a blue-eyed, brown haired boy to say Happy Valentines Day to her - a very rough sketch, as I did it, sketch and photoshopping, in about 20 minutes.)

Valentines day card/image for Karen:

May add more if I feel like sketching more random crap for fun.

Happy Valentines day, mina-san~ Or happy singles day, if you haven't yet found that special person.

Working on (or rather, am calling it "done" for now) a valentine's day err... image for Senpai. And I have come to the following conclusions:

1) Drawing with a tablet is fun. But somewhat harder than drawing on paper. But there's some spiffy controls on a tablet+photoshop that you just don't get on paper.
2) I need to work on being able to imagine details. Right now... it's just a foggy.. mental idea of what I want. And so I draw it, and then erase as I find ratio/size issues.
3) I love the ability to configure the wacom tablet driver so that only a certain portion of the tablet responds, and it only matches a portion of the screen (notably, where I want to draw).
4) Coloring is hard. Yipes. I'm doing the equivalent to watercolor-ring, right now... sketching in shaky grey ("pencil") lines, and then adding color and smudging to get the mix I want.

I need to look at other people's works and.. I dunno. The other thing is that I was drawing a cat. In a basket. Which I don't usually draw. Or rather, have never drawn on paper, so I didn't really know how to place the paws. Or how big the stupid basket should be. As it is, it's too big right now ^^;; and the cat looks awkward. And rather... childish =^^=;; Like a grade schooler took crayons and drew stuff. 'cept it wouldn't take a grade schooler 'bout 2 hours.

I want to know how people color up to the lines in photoshop. Need to see if most people just use fill? I dunno. The other thing is, I'm separating color and sketch lines, so I can mess around with color and be less precise, and not worry too much about erasing my original outlines. I guess I could also draw, then erase up to the lines...

Heheh, assuming Senpai doesn't read my journal here~ at least, I know she hasn't logged in again ^^;;

Phoo, I want a hug from her. And maybe a valentine's day present. Most likely not happening though. Oh well.
