- What program do you use to make your gifs/graphics?
- Where do you get your textures?
Wherever I can. Most of the time I get them at: textureporn, textures_r_us, deviantart.com (in the resources section), slayground, ex-posed.com, lostandtaken.com, stewark, planets-bend-between-us, wicked-fate, and random Google searches.
- What are your favorite fonts?
I made two fonts recommendation posts. You can find them here & here.
- Do you use any PSD’s?
No, I do not. Every graphic and gif I make is colorized from scratch.
- How do you colorize your graphics?
I use Color Balance, a lot of Selective Color, Channel Mixer, and for the past few months I’ve also been using Gradient Map on nearly every graphic. Sometimes when I get lazy I’ll use Vibrance.
- Do you write tutorials?
I don’t. I used to make them years ago but I have a tendency to go way into details so writing tutorials takes me an infinite amount of time and quite frankly I just don’t have the energy for it anymore.
- Do you post your PSD’s?
I posted one but don’t expect seeing my psds often. As stated earlier, I colorize all of my graphics from scratch therefore I don’t save any psds unless some miraculous occasion occurs. Plus i’m not too crazy about sharing all of my techniques out in the open. As silly as this may sound, I work hard to achieve my ‘own signature style’ and I know some people tend to copy psds step by step instead of using them for reference.
- What do you use to cut out the subject in pictures and screencaps?
I use the Pen Tool for that. There is a tutorial here on how to use it (just scroll down until you see an animation with a pear) and there is also an extensive tutorial here on how to use several methods for cutting subjects.
- Do you take requests?
Due to lack of time, I can’t. Once in a while i’ll put a post up saying “give me a fandom/etc and i’ll make a graphic based on it" so that’s your closest chance to request something. I don’t mind suggestions but only for movies/shows/celebrities i’m interested in (because where’s the fun in making fanart for stuff i’m not fan of?).
- Where did you get your current theme?
I’m currently using 24 Hours (with some modifications) by kimhna.
- Do you manage other blogs?
