I liked within temptation before evanescence even came onto the scene, and now their making it seem like within temptation are a new thing. what trash.
If you like that style theres also Lacuna Coil... its goodness wraped in female vocalist... and they been around for a while now (it just hurts me when i hear people calling Lacuna a carbon copy of Evanescence.. THEY WERE FIRST!!

I have been into Lacuna coil for about 7 years and I can say I am well and truly over them, there is just so many other female fronted "metal' bands that own the absolute f***ing jesus out of them. So now to prattle off a list of fem-fronted metal acts that kick their arse... Tristania, The Sins of Thy Beloved, Theatre of Tragedy, Sirenia, Epica, Trail of Tears, Beseech, Octavia Sperati, Madder Mortem, Collide, Orphanage, Satyrian, THERION, The Gathering, Bloodflowerz, Midnattsol, Leaves Eyes, Xandria, Mordiggan, Penumbra, Ataraxia, Lunatica, Summoner, DORO, To-Mera, Stream of Passion... can anyone tell im a female fronted metal band fan?

I have no idea how anybody could assume psycopathic nature from an interest in how the internal organs of animals work... BUT interestingly enough in the documentary that was mentioned (tying in with the original subject) Von Hagens does infact liken himself to Walt Disney.

His analogy comes in response to the question about what his Body-Worlds exhibition explores, he states that Walt Disney began a generational love affair with the moving image, and that by making these things readily available he sold the entire world on the concept of animation. Von hagens is the 'Walt disney' of anatomical science, as he instituionalizes a dormant love affair with the intricate workings of the human body. By having these anatomical specimens on display the average person can view and become intrigued. Hence he, like Walt Disney before him have taken a subject matter and created a conversation between creator and viewer.

Interesting way of percieving his art, and a fair analogy really in my opinion. On that note, has anyone seen his latest series of public anatomical dissections on disease? They have been very interesting, tackling cancers and what not and showing how they interact inside the body. Ofcourse the squemish should not watch, but it is definately more than side alley or freakshow in nature, absolutely fantastic series.

I like to think that Monkey Island was my real parents, hahaha... well not really but i spent a butt load of time playing it. Glad to see people knew the quote. Thats the place where you can go back to monkey island 1 if you repeatedly click on the water 'gee id hate to be that guy'

So anyway, barbershop quartet here we go...

There's a monkey in my pocket and its stealing all my change,
Its stare is blank and glassy i suspect that its deranged.

So those into adventure games would have heard the laughable December 2012 release date set for Monkey Island five posted on the Lucasarts website. I dont really wann have to wait that long.

Also on the topic, Sam and Max, Day of the Tentacle, Loom, Grim Fandango all awesome games. Loved the Zork series, and there was even a good point and click adventure of Ripleys Believe it or not.

But Sure Myst is pretty, but egad is it dull. (now true adventure gamers will be able to pick that one out)

Games / Re: Warhammer?
« on: May 09, 2007, 09:51:12 AM »
Been so long since i have played, and its so freaking expensive, but I used to spend all of my hard earned money on it in high school, I guess that would mean I used to play about 6 years ago? f*** I had a lot of stuff, but didnt really get into Warhammer 40k very much, really only dug the Fantasy themed Warhammer, I assume much has changed since i played. Mostly played as Chaos and used to own...

1 x Bloodthirster of Khorne
8 x Champions of Khorne
1 x Archaon Lord of Endtimes
8 x Regiments x Set up 5 across by 4 deep of Chaos Warriors.
16 x Regiments set up 6 Across by 3 deep of Marauders of Chaos.
6 x Chaos Warrior Chariots.
2 Regiments 5 across, 1 deep of Knights of Chaos.

Had craploads of bloodletters and flashhounds too, but not sure on the numbers, probably about 20 of each i spose. Also 3 maybe 4 chaos spawns.

Rest assured I never got use all that many of them, ha ha ha. Also sold them all now. No longer have any. also had a few thousand point orcs and goblins army, probably had close to 150 goblins. and why not at 2 1/2 points each i think they were.

Give aways were the reflections and/or shadows.

Couldnt agree more, there seemed to be some odd choices in shadow details amongst the images.

Yeh, they definately are distinct ways of making planets, but they share some similarities. Thats the beauty of photoshop really is that there is several ways in which to come about similar results, ultimately that there is so many ways to do the same thing. Hence my love affair with the program, ha ha ha.

I notice your process is indeed very similar to that of Greg Martins, a photoshop user whom practically specialises in creation of space scenes. For the benefit of others who are looking to create space scenes such as those described in your tutorial I have included links below to his tutorials.

Your tutorial itself is very helpful my only complaint being that if you are to create a photoshop tutorial it is always an idea to set your workspace to default, as in the first section on making a planet some of your screen positions arent. It is a small thing to pick at, but in the grand scheme of things in future you should do it.

Regardless it has inspired me to make something and I think I will have a go at the underwater look you have created.
