So Ms. Procrastination here has been sifting through all her old work from years ago and decided to edit some of it. Someone told me about a program called Picasa 3 that they use for editing, so I decided to give it a try. I've been experimenting with it by warping old pictures.

I did this photography a few years ago, just by going in my backyard with a cheapo camera. I hope you like flowers, haha




I think the program works best for photography, but I tried editing some of my digital drawing too. For some it doesn't do much, but I was happy with a few tricks that I tried.

Any of you recognize this pic?



And um, Sims 3 anyone?? xD I edited a few screenshots of my sims lol
I honestly don't know why I'm posting these... the first one is my character licking a Popsicle that he hunted down the ice cream truck for... the second is his sad puppy face when he was an idiot and burned the hotdogs on a camping trip.



So this is a hugely experimental post, not my usual stuff, so I'd appreciate some feedback! Thank you!! :D

(pwetty) :3

My fav is the one with the butterfly x3

The drawing is is awesome too. ^u^ Picassa? I love using that! And let me guess... the neon option? Although I may be wrong on that. ^^"

I don't really see anything different in the sims screenshots, but I love sims, so YAY!!

Awesome! Keep using Picassa! >u<

Wow, awesome job blacksheep. You really did a great job with these. Maybe I'll give it a shot if you can get it for mac... Sorry, got distracted. The color really pops on these, which is good; however, I found that with the second one, the color popped a little too much, I'd just tone that down a bit, but who cares about my opinion? :)
My favorite has got to be the butterfly though, I really liked how you made most of it black and white, but it appears that the butterfly is bringing color back into the picture, very good. Your art never seizes to amaze me, keep up the great work.

Save time... see it my way.

Heyyyy, Sheep! Okay, I know this is an incredibly late reply, but c'est la vie, I have things to say. ;)

As always, your artwork and photography is stunning. Your drawing (I had such a wave of nostalgia when I saw that!!) took on a whole new dimension of creepiness, which is wonderful. The butterfly is by far my favorite one of these; it looks like it should just fly around the world illuminating all the gray spots...

Sorry, zoned out on the purty colors for a moment. Anyway, my only gripe is the presence of the time-stamp in the second two photos. I taught myself to turn it off whenever I get ready to do some photography, because it tends to detract a little from such beautiful photographs as these.

Other than that, I can only stare in awe. :) Keep up the great work!
