My beautiful boy was run over today. I found him at 6.00pm. I wrapped him in my coat, carried him home and buried him.

He was 2 years old on September 12th, so didn't have a long life. He was gorgeous though. As with all cats, he had 'personality' and I shall miss him dearly. Especially at night, when he isn't laid on my bed.

He's gone over Rainbow Bridge.


I'm enjoying this new found skill of painting in Photoshop, so here's another one I've done. The lineart (singer) is one by David Cousens, a forum buddy of mine. It takes hours and loads of layers using the method I do, but it's so much fun. I'm going to be doing a lot more of these I think.

Got my mother in a right snit this morning. One of my crickets had obviously escaped, quite a big one too, and it was sitting on the stairs when she came down this morning. lol. She's threatening to leave home if any more appear. Ha, ha, ha. They don't live long in my house, as it's live food for my Bearded Dragons, so I've no problem with the odd one having a bit of fun before he dies. This particular one is already dead. Awwww shame, eh? lol.

Well, I'm not getting on too well with my macro lens at all. Just can't seem to get a real good, sharp shot. Looks like loads more practice is needed. But, I have been sitting with Photoshop again. I had a go at some manga for a competition at www.pixeladdiction.com. I didn't win, but hey ho!!!! it was good experience. 10 hours work and 63 layers. I'm quite pleased with it for a first attempt.

I have been very, very naughty. I have been wanting a Macro lens for soooooooooooooo long, and today I got one. I really need my wrist slapped 'cause I can't afford it, but hey ho! what the heck, eh?

This is my first attempt. I took about 20 different images and this is the only one I kept. This is rubbish and I know it. I've posted it though because it will serve as a reminder as I get better. At least, I hope it will. lol.

Practice, practice, practice as they say.

Jeez, I've been feeling like my right arm was missing for the last 8 days. We had a massive storm here and it blew my phone and internet. I just thank goodness that it didn't blow my 'pooter too.

Eddie and Betty are coming along nicely. Putting weight on and taming nicely. They are just sooooooooooooo adorable.

I did manage to put an image together this week, at least. I've used a combination of two software programms. Bryce and CS2.
