Save, plus a new state

Thu Oct 2, 2014, 4:58 PM

I have a terrible habit of not saving my work as I go. An hour or two into a thing I'm doing, I realize I haven't yet saved any of my progress. 2 hours later, usually when I need more iced tea or a bathroom break, I realize I haven't saved anything since that time. I need to get better at that.

Also, about a week ago I moved back to Las Vegas. :) Since I'm no longer working for DA, (don't ask, I don't air my shit like lolly) I had no need to be in LA. I've never liked it there and only moved for the job. LA is toxic. For me, at least. Others seem to thrive on the chaos and drama a city like that regularly regurgitates. It's good to be away from that, as well.

I thought about moving to Salem, OR, or back to Vegas, and put in apartment applications to both places to see who responded first. Vegas won! And here I am.

Pure awesomeness.

Line-art snob.

Live your life like it's one giant game of Cards Against Humanity. :)

It's more fun that way.

Em at a coffee shop. Natural light only, with the perfect portrait lens, the 85 1.8!

Minimal retouching on this, too.
Christmas Lights by renonevada
Christmas Lights
Testing portraits with a string of Christmas lights in the background.

There are 2 layers of lights. The smaller set was in the original photo. The larger bokeh blur circles were a shot I took solely of the lights, then adding them in Photoshop in a couple of layers.

I think it gives an illusion of outside lights. A bit more experimentation and I think I can work with these! :)

Hello. I am ProfessorAdagio, previously banned for scamming people while I was admin of the Group Beyond-Universe. I completely understand you will ban this account I have created, I have no dispute with that. I just wanted to turn your attention toward this:…

I have attempted to explain the situation that I became aware of over my monthly checkups on DeviantART. I was hoping you could check this situation over and resolve this as you can. The current admin in my place there doesn't understand my message at all, and is and has been harassing an innocent Deviant along with a co-conspirator.

I appreciate that you have taken the time to read this and check out the issue at hand.
