New icon, Trigun rant [Aug. 5th, 2004|09:52 am]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Yet another icon. Guess what it means. Escept zmd_norrec. You don't get to guess.

Incidentally, I honestly don't know how I did the thing with the text in the "smoove" icon. I recall it was a no-brainer, like, I just clicked on something and BAM white text became transparent text with a white glowy outline, but I'll be damned if I remember what I clicked on. Not that I was going to do that with this one, because that would have looked goofy. But I would like to know what I did so that I can possibly repeat it at some point.

OK, about Trigun. The ending sucked ass. It was all pretty cool and then ep 23 was like, brilliant, and I cried. And then, ep 24, I cried (but that's because I really loved Legato, and not from any sympathy for the Vash thing). So wtf were 25 and 26?
OK you may be wondering "Why are we talking about Trigun today?" -- it's because I did these memes of Trigun and it reminded me of how -

What you change in the seriesYou decide to team up with Knives in the last battle and defeat Vash. He now plans to kill of all of humanity with you at his side. Of course you know he'll always protect YOU since he likes and respects you. I'd be careful though, your new name's "Legato II".

- of how crap the ending is. Oh wait -- you've all seen it, right? I'm not like, telling you the end and stuff, am I? Because that scene where Legato's like "You gonna have to shoot me, sweetheart!" (OK he did not say that, he said something smoove) -- that was really awesome. That was some bad-ass evil there. Fuck kicking a guy's ass, thoroughly defeat him emotionally and he'll kick his own ass. It would have been cooler if the series ended there. Right there, ep 24. No Knives resolution, no moping reflective Vash moments (yawnfest)... just BANG! -> end creds.

I'm so mean. >D

Minor note to myself: the inacurracy of the icon is beginning to bother me. I may have to edit it to satisfy my impossibly high personal standards.

I just clicked on something and BAM white text became transparent text with a white glowy outline,

Hmmm . . . what program were you using? Because I do that thing all the time in Photoshop, it's pretty easy. But if you'rre not using Photoshop then it's out of my realm of kowledge.

Here's what you do for Photoshop:

Make sure you have the text layer selected, then go down to the button that says 'Layer options' (in Photoshop 7, it's kind of a fancy 'f') on the Layers menu.

First, go to 'Blending options: Default'. Move the slider for 'Fill Opacity' from 100% to 0%. The text will disappear. That's okay, just go to the next step.

Now go to "Outer Glow", check the box nest to 'Outer Glow' and a white halo will appear round your text. On the Outer Glow menu you can fiddle with colors, size, etc.

Hope that helps! Although, if you're using Paint Shop Pro or some such thing, this was probaby pretty pointless . . . but yeah, that's how I created the black text with orange glow in the above icon.

Well, that does help, if at any rate I can do that sort of thing manually. I'm using a program from the 90s, and it's well powerful, but the manufacturer doesn't even make graphics software anymore. So, I pretty much have to see what Photoshop users do, and then translate that to this thing.
I know there was a one-step process, though. I just don't know what it was. :(

i might not have got it but i think the icons cool! (2 hours break for sleep? food? sex?)

i love Trigun! Legato's death is cool.. but the manga is much much better.

Knives is still my favorite tho <3

If Legato wasn't such a suckup, he'd have been a way better villain than Knives :D

i think hin being a suckup is part of his charm.. or something. but Knives looks sexier.
i think thw worst part of the anime wud be the lack of Elendira! XD

Re: unless it's his hat size

A winner is you!

It's really just a close approximation of pie. Perhaps he transmuted a pie out of random things he found.

well he is

Alchemy is too often misused. Who the hell cares about making people, or gold, or other shiny rocks? I'd totally walk around transmuting tasty baked goods. And maybe sometimes a pile of cannons, like Gran. He was an asshole, of course, but you must admit that sometimes assholes get really cool ideas. But I would combine my powers in unnatural ways for fun and profit, and transmute a PIE CANNON.

Then the president would try to take it away from me, also for fun and profit, because he is a bastard. He would never succeed because he has a gun-finding problem.

I never wrote pi as 22/7, myself, always used the symbol or about seven decimal places. I think it's because I really hate the number 22. :/
