#2026020 Derping With Pixel Art

Posted by Coops on 11 July 2018 - 10:44 AM

Edit: this is really easy to use wow.

 

How do I resize my images to be small like yours? And how did you make a circular shape like that?

On the right side of the screen, there is a resize option. For Codex awards, the image size needs to be 25x25. If you want it to be that small, I recommend starting that small, instead of working with 32x32 and resizing after you've already made the sprite. You lose a lot when you resize versus just starting in the smaller size. 

As for making a circle, just zoom into my marble and look at the number of pixels on each side and use the mirror tool (so it makes both sides identical). 

Here is a close up of my marble for you

#2025899 Phobias

Posted by Coops on 07 July 2018 - 10:03 PM

What are your phobias? Disclaimer: if you post photos/gifs/videos of another person's phobia (after they've announced it), please just spoiler it out of respect. Personally, photos don't set my phobias off more than a lil flutter but others may experience full-blown panic if unexpectedly confronted by their phobias. Obviously, we can't control every part of the world and internet, but we can here so just please be mindful of your fellow codexians. <3

I have a mild thalassophobia. It used to be a lot worse. Specifically, for me, it isn't about the ocean itself, but like the deep dark underwater. When I first bought Ark the game, I couldn't dive in the game at all. I actually used the game Subnautica as a type of exposure therapy. I still get a bit sweaty when I dive deep in that game and sometimes I get a bit anxious from it lol. In real life, I can't swim very far out from the shore without becoming anxious. It is worse if I can't see (I've lost glasses to the ocean before bc I refuse to go in the water without seeing and contacts aren't an option). Now I like looking at pictures of deep dark water and reading about the ocean even though my heart beats a little faster.

My other phobia is cockroaches which really sucks. This one is significantly more intense and I have had full-blown panic attacks from this one. It's so dumb because I know they are necessary for the ecosystem and I know they are harmless, but they are so uncomfortably disturbing, and I have a visceral reaction to them lol. This one actually used to be pretty mild and got significantly worse when my autonomic dysfunction got worse, which is so weird to me, because it's not like I had any traumatic events. It's just like one day the phobia was magnified by 100.

So tell me about yours, if you want!




#2025896 Morbid Shit You Do

Posted by Coops on 07 July 2018 - 05:50 PM

I've just never had to confront death like that. It isn't an everyday reality for me. 
I don't live in chronic pain, I don't have to be meticulous with my medication and I don't have to visit doctors unless I'm super sick.

I didn't mean it to offend you. Your post made me feel sad for you. I don't pity you at all (I'm sure that'd piss you off more) but I don't know how else to express the sentiment you make me feel.

It's just sadness.

I'm an anthropology major with a focus on forensics.

 

I love reading autopsy/postmortem reports. I love checking out the morgue in DTLA. It's a cool place.

Thank you for clarifying. I don't really view it as sad, so you definitely shouldn't, if you can. It's just part of life. Some people are sick sooner than others. Some people deal with it longer. It's just how it is.




#2025793 Derping with acrylics

Posted by Coops on 05 July 2018 - 05:12 PM

These are so good!! The jellyfish is definitely a favorite. Where/how did you start painting? I'm looking for more creative outlets lately

I actually just bought a cheap set of acrylics from Micheal's and some wrapped flat canvases and just decided to start at home. I have been reading stuff online about blending, making colors, brush styles and just kinda derping at home. No classes. No pressure. Just really trying to have fun and do whatever.

This is an update of #3 Crow

#2025744 Derping with acrylics

Posted by Coops on 03 July 2018 - 04:18 PM

I've always wanted to get into new mediums, since digital has been my primary artistic medium, so last Christmas I got some water colors from my husband. But I suck at water colors. They aren't forgiving at all and I lack the technical skill right now to do much with them. So last week I decided to give acrylics a try and man! They are so fun and so much more forgiving, in my opinion. Anyways, here are my pieces (will add more later) in order of completion. Please be nice. These are literally my first attempts at acrylics lol. Feel free to post your own non-digital works! I'd love to see them.

#2024955 Life Apps

Posted by Coops on 12 June 2018 - 10:14 AM

@Jess just told me about a really neat app called Dminder. It lets you track how available vitamin D is, solar noon and UVI. Being as sick as I am, I often have trouble getting outside, especially in the summer because heat makes me very ill and at risk of passing out or worse. I found out in April my vitamin D was horrifyingly low lol. ANYWAYS, I use apps to keep track of my medications, exercise routine, my heart rate, blood pressure, other health stuff and life in general. I'm really picky about the apps I use. I've been looking for a good one to use to manage my household chores - including the seasonal ones or less frequent ones like changing the air filter, etc. I tried something called Our Home and it was pretty diverse but you had to program each task which got overwhelming so I gave up on it.

What are some mobile apps you use to help you stay organized? Have any recommendations for chore apps? Do you use any cool health-related apps?

You're welcome, everyone. I hope it was as good for y'all as it was for me. 




#2024946 Nintendo General

Posted by Coops on 12 June 2018 - 08:46 AM

Beyond late to the party: I finally got a switch and i LOVE it. 

 

I only have Zelda because, wow, games are pricey but the screen on the system is great and I love that I can also connect it to my tv.

Zelda is so much fun. I got my sister hooked. She wasn't a huge gamer until she saw the Switch and she got Zelda.

 

I just recently got Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for my Switch and it's pretty fun. I feel like there is so much to do in it, and that's a little overwhelming, but it's still enjoyable.
