Inspired by seeing a shooting star during a heavy night of the Geminid meteor shower, I came up with this spread and have since learned very valuable things about myself and helped a friend as well! It really seems to point out flaws, faults, and some areas where change is needed to allow goals/dreams to come true. ♥
summary: You attend one of Natasha’s office parties against your will and end up meeting a charming stranger who turns out to be the person who runs the company. (AU; CEO!Bucky)
characters: Bucky Barnes x Reader (F), Wanda Maximoff, Pietro Maximoff, Natasha Romanoff, Sam Wilson, Pepper Potts, Stephen Strange, references to Tony Stark word count: 2115 warnings: none A/N: I’m emotional as I write this. Thank you so much to everyone who joined me for this ride. I didn’t expect this story to gain the response it has. Thank you, thank you. My heart is incredibly full. There will be one more part and then an epilogue after this. xx
As a highly sensitive introvert, being in a roomful of people for an extended amount of time always made you extremely uncomfortable. Tonight, you find yourself in an even more challenging predicament knowing every single person surrounding you was there because of you.
It was finally the night of your art show. As much as you wanted to crawl under a table and hide, you knew that this was the best way to meet potential clients and make a mark in the industry. Taking a deep steadying breath, you decided to keep it together for the next five hours, at least.
What is the secret behind your wonderful screenshots? I mean, sims look so smooth and all. How do y'all do it?
First of all, thanks! I dunno about my screenshots being wonderful but at least I have come long way since the first pictures I’ve taken. ^^;
As for secrets, this will probably sound like the weirdest advice but I turn off the lighting and shadows so all the clunky parts on Sim faces aren’t so damn obvious. (I stole this picture from google since I don’t feel like waiting half hour to open my game just to take a screenshot of the settings):
^ I turn off shadows and set Lightning to low, everything else is high and smooth edges is set to More. The rest is usually very little photoshop and some smoothing in PaintTool Sai, I rarely do anything past that anymore.
Longer version: I first crop the part of the image I want, then duplicate it and use filter>liquify and use that to smooth out the sharpest parts like so:
(I do that on separate layer because if something goes wrong I can just delete the layer and make new one instead of trying to fix it since that’s just faster) and the next step would be to smooth out the parts that need to be smoothed with blur tool but really this particular picture has nothing for me to smooth and I can’t find another. Then once that step is done I duplicate the layer twice. The lower layer is set to multiply and the top one to screen. Then just edit the opacity of those layers until you get the look you want like so:
and the finished product is something like this:
I also have nice graphics card which obviously helps a lot too. I guess that’s it?
it’s been a while since i have posted a drawing here.. well…. school.. i only got to draw cuz im sick and absent haha ;;
nEW FAVORITE GAME OML IDK WHY I LOVE THIS GAME JUST NOW AND BACK THEN I ALWAYS SEE FANART OF 2B IN PIXIV AND NOW I LOVE 2B AND 9S TOO MUCH (well i need to draw him too ehehe) THE BEST THING ABOUT THEM IS THAT THEIR VOICE ACTORS ARE YUI ISHIKAWA AND HANAE NATSUKI~~
i haven’t watched a gameplay yet.. and i want to play the game but my comp is too slow and doesn’t have a graphics card ;;
so if you think you had a chance to spoil me, don’t do it ples
practicing dynamic(is it dynamic enough tho?? idk lol) poses and clip studio paint
would you mind posting your new computers specs? or the name of it and the graphics card? i want my game to look like that lol
Oh! I never bought a PC before so I read a lot of the posts at Leefish and also checked with @celebkiriedhel - we love Kiri! This post at Leefish has my new computer’s specs.
I’m embarrassed by how ignorant I am in it but what I learned was very
useful and necessary, maybe it’ll help others too :B Good luck, anon-simmer-friend!
I should admit I don’t know what most of this really means
but here are some recommendations if you’re buying a new computer and installing our fredashay game:
TS2 with Windows 10 - Radeon ATI card (NVidia cards are not recommended) the better it is ^ the more amazing the graphics will be - 16GB RAM or more
you’ll need to set up your game to use more than 2G to avoid lag - New computers all seem to have
“native six-core processing” Check that the base number is 2 or greater (mine is 3.5MHz) - Install from discs, avoid the UC if possible - Remove Securom and find a no-cd crack for your latest sp or m&g - Edit
for your screen size -
video card (detailed how-to here) - Get @simnopke’s shadow fix
i’m working on really trying to get my animation and motion graphics out there right now, i just made a big pivot into freelancing and looking for design jobs full time after saving money for a few months and helping ted get established here.
if you enjoy the content i post or reblog, like me as a friend, or if you are into video production and motion graphics, i would really appreciate it if you just subscribe to my YouTube channel. It’s really new and I am just trying to get to 100 subscribers before May.
Used my Christmas money to buy a new power supply and a 4gb video card. Had a 1gb card before that with all the graphic options down narrowly made it through Black Flag. Now even with all graphic options up, it’s super clean and responds almost too quickly! Need to play a while to get used to the speed. And Edward’s tattoos really stand out now. *gasp* I need to visit Rome again! TTFN!
Just a heads up for later today, my graphics card fried out for my desktop, and I wanna start doing commissions because I can’t afford it with the way my job is assigning hours right now. I’ll need to figure out prices, but when it happens, I’d really appreciate some help getting the word out with stuff like reblogs or shout outs. I feel like it sounds a bit needy, but this desktop is all I have, and if I lose it, that’d be even more money I’d need to spend. Hell, maybe if I get enough commissions for extra money, I’ll finally be able to revamp Project Union, since the script is lodged into my work folder, just gathering dust. Thanks if you read this the whole way through, and even more thank you’s if you decide to help. The commissions will be done on my laptop btw, if you were wondering how I’d actually do them.
Just built my new computer that has upgraded parts, jumped ahead by almost 4 years, and this has a custom water loop in it! Got the graphics card in the loop, the cpu, and 2 radiators since it is easier to try and fit a 120mm and a 240mm into a case than find a mid tower that can house a 360mm.
I still have just about as much storage but left out the broken 2TB one. So now I am down to 12TB OH NO! If I need more I can probably find some M.2 drives for cheap or some 2.5″ storage devices by buying those portable drives from like WD or Seagate that can go up to 4TB.
Got a 8700k, 1080ti, 16gb of ram (2 sticks so I can upgrade if I want), the Fluid Gaming A240G with extra stuff parts, 2 WD black 6TB, and a 256gb m.2 ssd.
