Well....tomorrow is my first year anniversary on LJ...I cannot really believe how time has flown! Thanks everyone for making it such an enjoyable experience!

Thank you everyone for your get well wishes, I am getting better everyday! My sore throat is gone, and now all that remains is a cough and stuffy nose. But I can handle those much better then a sore throat. ;) I just hope that everyone else who is feeling ill will be getting better too!

And here's a little community I just started in case you are all interested:

You know how sometimes you have a screencaps with way too much orange, and you can't seem to get rid of it, no matter what colouring you try? It's rather annoying...anyways, that's the purpose of this tutorial. Hope it helps! Questions most welcome! :)

Basic colouring tutorial for pictures with middle to major orange in them
For Gimp, should be translateable
Before:                      After (with some colour balance, curves & using the channel mixer):

1. Crop your base.
2. Duplicate your base, and desaturate your duplicate
3. Set your now desaturated duplicated to screen or overlay. (depends on the picture)
4. Now, depending on what you get- if it's too light or the icon looks odd, you might want to try duplicating your desaturated layer twice more and setting one to screen or overlay and the next to  multiply at a low layer of opacity. If that still doesn't work quite right, I found that duplicating your coloured base (but keeping all your desaturated layers) and setting it to screen also works to give it more colour with out giving it more orange/red. Just play around with it until you get what you like.
5. Then...go ahead and colour your icon as you wish! I hope this helps! Here are some results as to what I've got. (note: these results below  where finished with some other colouring involved afterwards....mainly through curves, channel mixer and colour balance)


Now...I hope this makes sense. If not, I truly apologize, and can re-write it if need be. Please tell me if it doesn't make sense...thanks! :P

The 90th Anniversary of Armstice

For The Fallen
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

In peace may they rest, may we never forget why they died. Collapse )


Thank you!

This is about the only Fan fiction I shall ever write; so please bear with me. It's horribly cheesy and badly written I know, and I do hope I have not offended anyone by writing it. I shall forewarn you- it involves the characters from the Movie Version of Prince Caspian, and from the BBC TV show Robin Hood. I did this entirely out of fun; and did not mean to offend anyone. So there. You are warned. :) If you are brave and venture to read this; I would love to hear feedback- however, if you did NOT like this; and were offended, please don't leave any comments that had rude language in this, at all. Those will be deleted, okay?

For England!...And for Susan?! Collapse )
