'Tis the season soon again, which reminds me of something that's always been bugging me greatly: drawing trees wrong. I remember having had issues of wrongly drawn trees at the age of six, and I still do. To illuminate what happens when you THINK you know perfectly well what something looks like, so well that there's no point checking reference pictures of  something that's SO OBVIOUS that a child can draw it.

Can anyone spot a problem with these 3d trees:

It's kind of like getting an attachment to your tricycle to make it a bike. There's no reason to go back but maybe you'll decide you like alpha transparency more than ease of use and solid feel.

That simile totally broke down halfway through.

of course he can't just get a PC to run XP, it would have to cost half as much as a MacBook and have a reasonable default interface!  We can't have simple, accessible, or highly potent machinery in this day an age!  it has to cost money and all the buttons have to bounce and change size!




(we also can't make archive folders without a hack, download ANYTHING that isn't through iTunes, have a free, decent word processor, or any of those other things that only silly people like)

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

oh-khey........... :(

the silly truism is that when you turn off all the stupid stuff in preferences they both pretty much are nice.  most of the differences are superficial and can be removed either through preferences or by downloading fairly small amounts of software.

So far no good way to get the ctrl key and the apple key to switch jobs though.... if anyone knows a non-permanent solution let me know?
