Nooo!! Because then someone else fantastic might volunteer a part about texturing only, for then they too to slowly disappear forever!

It is rather fascinating, the umpteen-illion ways nature presents plant & mineral forms that'd serve marvellously for tree designs, hey! Thanks for the links. I think one of my favorite designs so far is the logo by, I think it was, Silver Tree Media - like a giant mosaic snail upon snail spiral set atop a narrow trunk. It was the clearest indication that a tree needn't look just like a tree.

I didn't realize I hadn't updated the thread in so long - so many things have been happening and I've been very focused on creating character in people. We're moving in a couple weeks, but I'm hoping to be back on here - with tree work - not long after that.

loflmao - and grats.

I've never heard of a first kiss going down flawlessly. They've always been mini-disaster stories.

Weird road story here too - some terrible driver yesterday had a kid on a bike hanging off his rear bumper and didn't seem to realize it, so I tried to cut him off and get him to slow down. He just honked his horn at me, drowning out the screams of the poor kid being dragged along the road! I ended up following him for ages before he pulled into a driveway and finally got out - oh, waitaminute...

Having only recently gotten into the whole driving thing (documented a few posts back, actually) I'm just starting to get the hang of this whole road rage thing. Mostly it's rage at people calling me when I'm driving - I can't change a radio station without veering off the road, and I went through a red light* yesterday trying to tell my fiancé who'd called to stay INSIDE and wait at work if there are creepy people outside in a random street she doesn't have to wait for me in >_<

But there are so many idiots. EVERYONE in Melbourne speeds. And so many people do not indicate before overtaking or merging. Or people get pissed because you're not doing the speed limit BEFORE you pass the sign. Eesh.

*Light turns green, arrow stays red, I always find them easy to mess up on. About a half dozen cars followed me through when I made the mistake!!

Oh, and my hard drive failed. A newer one. With many of my old birdie photos. The PC it was in had been switched off (on the PSU) for months and never had problems, but somehow it died when I turned it on - to back everything up. XD Apparently freezing it in a sealed bag might get it to work for a few minutes...

Edited post above to clarify - youtube video was linked in .TakaM just before your link, Helm.

I'm loving the commentary you included on the game, Helm. Think you'll do anything else like that?

Whoops, I missed what Helm was on about there. It was followed by 'Fade to Black', wasn't it?

This is great, I can just watch the entire game through :D I loved it but didn't have the patience for it back then.

What's the music you were playing, Helm?

Tangent - that youtube video is pretty impressive, too (the one Taka.M linked above).

Waagh, my knee! The pain - the pain!! It's all weird and non-specific but in one particular place all at the same time. It's almost the kind of pain that makes you laugh. Anyone know that?

House hunting for rentals today - to see ONE open inspection in Melbourne, it took me six hours of public transport. Missus has the car outta town.

I had it all planned out and then the first bus arrived early. Extra early, even - I'd set my mobile ahead to be safe. Throw in the next bus being a bit late, a super busy highway with no crossings dividing me from my target and an inspection window shortened to ten minutes and I was running around in black dress shoes and a brand new suit. Knee suddenly went clicky - like when the missus sat on it and it bent the wrong way. I got there on time, but we're unlikely to get it anyway. Bah!

Missed my original bus back, then sat at the wrong platform at the train station, then the train home had to stop half way, connecting buses didn't show up, then I got sent back to the train for another two stops after which the bus home wouldn't let me in because he was convinced I wanted the OTHER bus that would require yet more walking on a very sore knee. And I helped a friend miss their flight because I didn't correct them on the time difference... d-oh!

I would've loved to have spent all that time pixelling! :(

If any of you are fabulously wealthy landowners looking to rent out in eastern Melbourne, I'd love to know.  :lol:

Ah, humbug. I have to return 76, apparently my pixel time needs to be spent house hunting. :(

Next time I'll join in earlier so as to avoid so many side pieces - this is harder than I thought! Colours are interesting enough, but when you have people all around you using it in different ways, some with dithering, some with barely any aliasing.. it's weird! Really, really weird.

I'll steal away 76 and see if I can survive it with a few clichés. :)

I was going to do fortyeight, but I can't work out what setz is doing with the base of his tile on the side - or more specifically, how to turn that into something different.

Sweet - thanks for notifying me, mathias! Currently house hunting all weekend so hoping you'll slow down and leave me one for Tuesday morning! :)
