2 Weeks…Again

Hey, Guys,

Well, how’s it going? Should be really good because I’m about to post the long post I promised in my previous postette from school during lunch break (it’s cold out side). I’ve got quite a few graphics, possibly some App recommendation and a little something else…?

Let’s start with the graphics, shall we?

So, one day at school, me and Wimper were talking, and he came up with the idea of a spoof. This would be the first ever spoof of a video game, and it was going to be awesome. It was going to be called, Call of Fruity: Green Ops. Get it? Call of Duty, Call of Fruity? Basically, it’s about this guy who becomes a sort of eco warrior kind of person who goes around killing and taking down evil companies like Shell, BP, Disney, etc. He could have things like pineapples as grenades and possibly even bio-degradable bullets made from highly compressed grass, leaves, old enemies and other vegetation.

Now you’re probably wandering what has this got to do with graphics, right. Well, I thought I would make a kind of advert/graphic/cover for the game in Photoshop, and here’s what I turned out like:

C’mon, you have to like it! I know the whole grass thing did kind of fail but you have to remember that I did this entirely from FREE photos I got from Google Images, I didn’t have any access to un-watermarked stock photos.

Surprisingly, I’ve just realised that I’ve hardly made any graphics in the 2 or more weeks since the last post, but I have made a few Club Penguin graphics for people and I have a new Twitter profile picture. Here it is!

Yes, I know, how could I have saved it as a .GIF image, but there is a very valid reason. I originally made it as an animated picture with the word Dapizz slowly bouncing on the spot. However, Twitter recently removed the ability to have an animated Twitter picture. You may think I’m wrong, because people sometimes still have them now, but I’m am correct. The people that had one before get to keep theirs and I can’t have one! When I realised this, I opened the animation in Photoshop again, saved it as a normal .PNG, but the .GIF had already harmed it so it was just too late! MOO HOO HOO!

Moving on, the last graphic for today:

This was a header I made for this guy on Twitter, PC35. I made it for FREE, something which is practically un-heard of in my Twitter neighbourhood (if you can call it that) and then guess what he did! He A) Never used the header and B) Certainly didn’t give me any credit. I therefore watermarked it. I bet you can’t find where, though. 😉

Now, what shall I talk about?

Apps.

Pretty awesome things, huh?

Then I’ll recommend some to you! 😀

Let’s start with Bike Rider. This is a little game where you have to jump and double jump at the right moment to stop a little stick figure motocross bike rider guy from falling down a bottomless pit…with a bottom. There’s also two other buttons on the game screen but I haven’t really worked out what hey actually do. It’s FREE in the App Store and it’s a great little time waster if your a bus waiting kind of person.

The iTunes Best Album and Song 2010 Voting App. This little App lets you vote for what song and what album should win the iTunes Best Album and Song Competition 2010. Basically you select you top three favourite albums from the top 20 best selling albums of 2010 then you select your favourite top 3 songs from the top 20 best selling songs of 2010. To submit your votes you simply enter your first name, last name, email address and any additional comments you want to add then your free to delete the App! I hope Pass Out – Tinie Tempah will at least get in the top 3! 🙂

It sounds so lame I know but since my last proper post I haven’t really downloaded any more good Apps.

Very lame.

Want some news? Well, I’ve got seriously addicted to RWJ (Ray William Johnson) who does the awesome =3 video reviewing show on YouTube every day! I can only be bothered to post every other week nearly! Lame again.

I am lame.

Poo.

I wrote this post in two parts. I did up to the header graphic in the morning and I had planned out what I was going to post about later on in the post but now, in the afternoon, I’ve forgotten. It was something really cool as well. Don’t you hate that. When you think of something really cool to either do when you get home from something or maybe something to blog about then you finish what your doing, like going to the loo or something, and then you’ve forgotten it! AAHH!

Well at least Flo Rida, Ke$ha and Apple are keeping my alive. Flo Rida and Ke$ha for Right Round, Apple for the earphones and iTunes. Perfect.

I think I should go now before you witness me die via words seeing as I probably will when the song ends!

So tell me, people: Do you like Right Round (Feat. Ke$ha) – Flo Rida?

Dapizz – 😀

MOO!

2 Weeks!

Hello, Guys!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in two weeks but I’ve been very busy. Forgetting the busy part of my revious sentence, I think you’re fully entitled to some rich graphics, App reviews and an overall, nice, good, old, long post. Forget ‘old’. (silence for a few seconds)

So, as you know, I’m reasonably into Club Penguin, on and off, and, as you also know, I’m really into Twitter now. I was hanging around Twitter a while back and I noticed there was a guy with an embarrassingly bad Twitter profile picture (have you seen my new Gravatar?) so I sent him a tweet. He then asked me if I would make him a Club Penguin cheat site banner for his website. I said yes and guess what I did?

I made one:

Yes it is an animated .GIF! I love them. You can get some really bad ones which, I know, just make you cringe badly, but when I use .GIF animation (BTW I do hate to boast) I think you usually get pretty good results! It was supposed to be a Christmas banner so that’s the reason for the tree in background. WOOT! Christmas! Oh, boy, do I love Christmas! However we mustn’t forget the true meaning of Christmas! No, especially if your not even religious! I find it so annoying and heartbreaking to see little children spending their entire Christmas sitting on a hard wooden bench all day listening to some under enthusiastic life-less guy talk about some think they probably don’t even understand! BTW I’m talking about little children that should be opening presents and playing with their mates in the snow instead of sitting in a cold church all day. I can get a little off track some times so I better focus back on the post. Yes. Focus.

You in need of some more graphics, huh? I won’t disappoint you:

I was experimenting with Photoshop CS5 when I was in a bad mood but now I look back it wasn’t actually that bad so I though I’d upload it! More:

A cool Dapizz button logo using a new font I’ll mention later! NEXT!

This was actually something I made quite a while ago but never remembered to upload or post! Now I see it again I really like it! (what can I say that isn’t NEXT or More?):

A nice new idea for a wallpaper, huh? I made a while ago too and never ot round to putting online so here it is. I’m making it my  wallpaper as soon as this post’s done! Moving on:

I know it’s not much to your interest but I made it and like it, it was my friend, Stralis33’s, idea and it’s his Club Penguin cheat site’s official logo!

As I said earlier, I will now give some thick, gloopy, App review. I don’t have a clue why an App review is in any way gloopy, but I think it sounds nice. I like gloop. Gloopy gloop. I’m going off track again. Focus. Apps.

Ok, one of the best Apps I’ve downloaded in the past month has to be Stick Wars. This is the very popular game that you also find on the Internet, where you have to defend, repair, and protect a wall of your castle. Loads of stick men (or bunnies if you download the ‘Bunny Hoard’ extra) are running at your wall with their fists, spears, pole, ramming carts, catapults, etc. You use repair men, archers, magicians, and your loyal, old finger to flick, blast, bomb and stab the attackers. There’s multiple levels to the game, obviously getting harder and harder. As well as the stick figures attacking your wall they’ve employed dragons and evil, giant stick figures to help them. You gain money with which you can buy prisons, magician schools, repair shops, archery training centres and loads more. With the prison you can pick up little stick men and drop them in your cage. After a few seconds they’re are ‘captured’ and your prison becomes free again for another person. With these ‘prisoners’ you can sent out people with bombs (suicide bombers basically) and groups of 3 with shields and spears. These people can also be trained to be archers, magicians and repair men. This App is FREE to celebrate the launch of Sick Wars 2 but it may be paid again by now. It should be in the Top 25 FREE Apps in the App Store. Have a look!

Secondly, I want to seriously recommend Trinity Interactive’s, 9 in 1, Action Heroes. It’s a series game where an App producer gets a load of their games together (9 in this case) and put them all in to on App to celebrate the end of the series. Like all Trinity Interactive games, this App takes a few years to load up, but when it’s loaded, it’s truly awesome! Trinity Interactive have put a little description together as well for each game. Here they are:

  • Jailbreaker (as I mentioned in my firs App recommendation post ever) : Jump and slide your way to freedom!
  • Hot Pursuit: Get ready for road rage!
  • Climber: Latch on and escape the ruins below!
  • Tomb Evader: Escape from the top of a collapsing pyramid!
  • Hell Flyer: Grab hold while you still can!
  • iKungfu Master: Increase your strength and defeat your enemies!
  • Hired Gun: Bring a steady hand and snipe the baddies!
  • Iron Commando: Drive back the alien invaders and their control ships!
  • Star Marine: Blast away the alien hordes!

Yes, all them need an exclamation mark after the description, according to the game.

I’m afraid that’s all the App recommending I can really do today so I’ll move on.

Fonts. I love them. You get fat ones, thin ones, italic ones, famous ones, and many more. They’re also so easy to download off of the Internet and a little extracting and moving about and, viola, you have a new typeface installed! Well, as mentioned earlier, I have a cool font to let you at today! Yes, a really cool font called Burbank which is used a lot on Club Penguin. In fact, it’s used everywhere. If you want a preview of it look at the shiny DP button above. I’ve lately started using it for practically everything, It just looks so good! Oh, BTW I also used it in the animated banner above! Click HERE to download it as a .ZIP. Oh, and just to let you know you need to use Burbank Big Wide on the black setting. Black means not normal, italic, bold, or bold italic, but black, extra bold, basically.

That’s pretty much it from me, so I guess I should say bye.

Isn’t that what your supposed to write? Bye.

Yes, I’ll go for that.

Bye! Dapizz – 😀

PS: Remember to rate this post just below this! xD


Black Drippin’ Heart

Hey, Guys,

I’ve got a really cool thing for you today! It’s called (hence the title of this post) Black Drippin’ Heart. Here it is to be blaitant:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I love it! Yeah, that wasn’t meant to be a terrible pun back there. 😐 Oops. Anyway, I can’t really think of anything else to show you guys today. I will tell you that I have only 4 days of my Photoshop CS4 Trial left over now, though. That sucks. Is there anybody out in the vast world we live in who likes me enough to give me a FREE Photoshop CS4 serial code so I can unlock the program for good. That would be so cool! Dream on…

Think…

Keygens…Codes…Serials…Photoshop CS4…

I love drifting away into random lovely thoughts…

Anyway, as I was saying, I would love to unlock Photoshop permanently even if it isn’t Photoshop CS5 Extended or anything fancy like that. I’ve found work so much easier in CS4, for instance, it’s little things like being able to merge layers so much easier than in boring old CS1. Then again, CS1 is better than nothing, I guess.

Seeing as I’m about to drift of into Adobe wonderland again I’ll leave you alone, it proably being quite boring for you, right.

Anyhow, Bye!

Dapizz – 8)

MOO!


Yabber-Yob

Hello,

How are you today, reader? Good? I am. I’ve just got home from London Stansted airport because I was in Germany. I had to go to a funeral in my family…

But seeing as you wouldn’t be interested in that kind of thing I will share some graphics with you that, really, should be vector graphics, not raster. Here be the graphics:

I used the pen tool a lot and the ‘Snap To Grid’ feature. The pen tool really is one of the best tools on Photoshop and I highly recommend you watch some tutorials or something if you don’t or don’t know how to use it! I have created so much with it…

Anyway I may have another something here too. Lets have a look…

AAHH Yes. This is an Elf Guy that I was taught to draw by my Mum ages ago and thought I should computerise. This was also done using the pen tool and the ‘Stroke Path’ mini feature. Seeing as this is hardly what you were expecting (well I very much doubt it) I will let you at something else on my hard-drive. Here be it:

Like it? It is kind of a copy of what Windows made for Vista’s wallpaper collection, except I did it and I also added glossiness to make t 100 times better! It’s 800×600 px. so it won’t fit for a normal computer screen for a wallpaper but if you want one made to fit a 1280×800 px. screen or any other dimensions come to think of it through me a comment…

I like comments…

Anyway, lets upload some more for you, shall we…

Pretty big…

I think it may be 1280×800 so it will fit perfectly (on most PCs) for a desktop wallpaper. I know I have even more for you so more’s on the way. Right now, in fact:

Also made to fit a normal PC screen size this particular picture is quite strange. I was experimenting during the making of the below image, and liked this so much I quickly saved it as a .PNG and continued to end up with this:

This obviously is also made to fit 128×800 dimensions. I have one more for you, this time it’s fully compatible with the Apple iTouch family devises, excluding the iPad, so you can use it as a great lock-screen background. What I was trying to say is it fits an iPod Touch or iPhone screen perfectly:

Do the same as usual, visit this page on your devise and save the image. Your very spoilt, you know. You just where given 7 images FREE for you to use at your free will! You should be very grateful…

Whatever…

If your on an iPad right now then don’t feel left out. I will soon be making iPad lock-screen wallpapers too so you can have that awesome Dapizz look wherever you are, whenever…

Stop being a show-off Dapizz…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀


Tveeter

Heyloo,

Zat vas Twitter vritten een a cherman accent! OK, English accent now…

Hi, Guys,

I have recently been going on Twitter a bit more and I realised I have a terribly bad background theme thingy. So, as usual and seeing as I had Photoshop, I gave the old background a right old, royal ass-kicking. I kicked it so hard it flew out of the entire Twitter server and into the recycle bin. Now my page looks very bland, so I clicked my little Photoshop CS icon in the task-bar and waited for the ass-kicked-picture-replacing to begin. In fact I waited and waited…and waited…and waited. Until my head blew up and I realised I had not properly clicked on the icon in the taskbar. So I clicked it, waited a while (not as long as before) and stood back as the ass-kicked-picture got truly ass-whupped (whupped can easily be confused with kicked, they are, however, very different). The picture was made, saved and uploaded…well, no, it wasn’t. I happened to be just a little too big. Not physically big but data-wise too big! So I took a load of layers off of this:

Pretty big, huh? I made it to my computers screen dimensions. You have to also imagine the Twitter page running up the middle. Oh, and ignore the fuzzy blue smudges around the edge. That was a bad mistake… :/.

Anyway, after the changing had begun a new picture was saved…this one:

Again imagine Twitter up the middle (or seeing as it worked you could just got to my Twitter page). It looks great on the actual page!

Anyway I have to be going…

Oh no, I have thought of something to tell you about. Firefox. Pretty good browser, mostly because of the UnPlug plugin and Personas. Personas are basically themes that you can choose from to personalise your browser. Lately I have got into making them on Photoshop and then submitting them so others can use them. I’m uploading my second one now. The first one is themed on the exploded Star Trek USS Enterprise (something) and this one of basic swirls. I called it Swirlish! For some reason I love that word. There will be a Japanese Mazda RX-7 Crazy Street Racer Drifters kind of Persona coming soon. I love drifting…

My mind…is drifting away…

Concentrate.

Yeah, I kind of have to go, being nagged at because someone wants to book flights or something…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀


Even More Graphics

Yes,

Yet again, I have some more graphics for you. This one was done for my friend Stralis33 without him even knowing I think. Anyway, I doubt anyone would reject an awesome graphics banner! Here it is:

Please comment!

Bye, Dapizz – 😀


Awesome New Graphics!

Hiya, Peoples,

I’m really happy because I’ve just created some awesome graphics on Photoshop! It’s basically DAPIZZ written in 3D using one of Google SketchUp’s tools, 3D text. With loads of cool reflection, swirls from new paint brushes I’ve just downloaded and some all round Photoshop know-how I think it looks pretty cool! Check it out, it’s 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high:

Now it suddenly doesn’t look so great!

HMPH!

Anyway…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

This is a post update.

Hi, Again,

I’ve got another really cool piece of graphical art type stuff for you here already. 20 minutes later I’ve downloaded a font and a couple of brushes. Here’s the result:

– Bye – 😀


WooHoo!

Howdy-Dudy!

I am celebrating because I have just finished the second to last Stage or Need For Madness 2! This is the 16th Stage of 17. There is another but that one is dead easy. You have just unlocked the best car on the game and all you have to do is tap someone and they go flying away like a bird (on fire). If you’re very un-believing I have proof:

You may also be thinking that game can’ be that hard, but it is. Click here and play the game if you don’t believe me! It has taken me something like 3 weeks to complete it, people having completed NFS games quicker (my friend has) and you have to take in the fact that it is only a Java powered web game, not using incredible graphics, PS3/XBOX 360 platform capabilities and a hand-held, toggle-enabled controllers!

Anyway, on the graphics side of life, lately I have been doing a lot in Photoshop, also contemplating downloading a 30 trial version of either Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, Photoshop CS5 or maybe Adobe After Effects CS5. They are all utterly incredible pieces of software, in my opinion, made by the best programmers, software engineers and graphics designers in the entire world! I really, really want an awesome video intro saying ‘presented to you…by…Dapizz1!’ or maybe ‘Dapizz1…presents’. I have seen videos of people having some text suddenly set on fire! It looked so awesome and apparently there is 7 pre-programmed seconds of fire text which you can edit! Every letter and number apparently. The only thing is I don’t want to waste my FREE 30 days! I don’t have any experience of After Effects use, I already have a version of Photoshop and I only really have one use for Dreamweaver, creating .SWF embed codes. It can’t be that complex!

Anyway, I can feel Photoshop dragging me in so I’ll go…

Bye, Dapizz – 😀

PS: I haven’t checked the hits counter for a couple of days. Please let it be a beautiful sight!


*Sob*

Oh, Hi,

I’m crying because my loyal Line Rider page that I created all my runs on has just redesigned it’s webpage layout and has possibly rebooted the server. Basically, I have lost all of my runs I have made. That’s hours and hours of line drawing all down the drain. I am so bloody pissed off! I do know that technically the files or whatever are actually stored on my computer but I don’t know how to find them. I have searched OS (C:) on my computer a couple of times with a few different searches but of course it takes ages and comes up with loads of crap you didn’t even know was on your hard-drive! I’m probably going to have another look soon to ease my furious temper; hopefully being successful! :/ Does any one out there have any idea how I can retrieve my files? Please say if you do. I like comments. I like them a lot! Heehee! 😀 LOL. I’ve got totally sidetracked!

Have you seen my new Twitter and YouTube banners? They should be down a bit and left from here. I created them all on my own! I surprisingly used Microsoft Word; for the shiny effect, Paint; to rounded crop the result from Word and lastly, Adobe Photoshop CS! It’s kind of obvious what for; all the words, the logos, the picture in the Twitter one, the watermark like thing and overall rasterizing, cropping and saving as a .PNG. I only ever use .PNG and .PSD! You see, .GIF and most .BMPs make the gradient look weird and wrong looking (but still cool), .JPEG and .JPG, well that’s just a total disgrace to photography editing and graphics design and pretty much all the others use huge amounts of memory or CPU to actually use. Here is a screen-shot of all the extensions and names of photo saving formats Photoshop CS supports. It’s incredible!

Crazy! What the hell is ‘Pixar’ or ‘Scitex’? Is it a special type of format that only Disney Pixar are permitted to use? HaHa! Anyway I have to go now! Get me more hits! 🙂
