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 I originally made it as an animated picture with the word Dapizz slowly bouncing on the spot.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


Sorry, I had things to do in the real world.

Hi, Guys,

The real world. Boring when it wants to be, rainy, cold, wet, miserable if you live where I do in the UK and overall, not as interesting or half as exiting as Photoshop CS5 (which if you follow my Twitter posts, you would know, is now on my computer). Seeing as I haven’t posted in 3 long, treacherous days, I decided I would post to end the suffering out there (any suffering you know of?).

Firstly, I showed you the Dapizz YouTube nearly-an-advert type thing in my last post and I realy like it as I said. I have now nearly finished another one for Stralis33CP seeing as I was very much bored (incorrect English, tut tut tut). It doesn’t look as good as the first one yet for some reason (maybe it’s just me criticizing my own work, let’s hope so) but it’s still cool. I’ll probably be able to show you next post, within the next 3 days for sure.

Moving on, Twitter. As I’ve said a lot of times and you’re probably bored of me saying now, I’ve got back into it a lot more enthusiastically than I ever used to be. The only tweets from me that anyone ever saw were automatic ones from YouTube when I commented on YouTube. I now have a possible Twitter background request from an anonymous source (I know but I wont tell you) and I’d better get going on Photoshop. Ooh, I can’t wait.

Seeing as I’ve just brought my post to a nice close, Ill leave you to it.

Bye, Dapizz – 8)

PS: Does anyone have an idea about 3D text in Ps CS5 with Repoussé. I can’t seem to understand how to do it. Repoussé isn’t available in the 3D drop-down menu when I have a rasterised text layer selected. Help me!


Just Read The Post…

Hey, Guys,

Today I’ve got quite a bit in stock for you. I’ve got a really cool video to show you, some graphics (I think), an official launching of the new YouTube banner on my site and a even a bit of news. Here goes:

I’ve found in life if you have a selection of things the best order to go through them is best first, then with the remaining stuff go worst to bad, leaving you happy and in a good mood. I know I’m not the best graphics designer in the world for sure, but that’s probably the best stuff I have to give you today:

If you’ve ever checked out the pages, or the ‘1 Tonne of Graphics’ page in particular, you will know there’s two graffiti style wallpapers in the wallpaper section. Well, today, their new family member is going to be officially released. Here he is (if it’s a he):

Yeah I know the text is unbelievably, in-humanely, insanely chav-i-licous but to be fair enough I couldn’t think of anything better! How brainless people can be, I know.

Moving on, let’s go to the official release of the new YouTube banner, shall we. I mentioned it in the previous post on this blog which I think was only yesterday, but anyhow, it has been edited from the version I showed you guys back then and now looks like this:

I duffed up the link on this one so you click like mad but to go to the actual channel you’ll have to click on the one in the sidebar (or click the link I just gave you). That was kin of stupid but:

MY NEW YOUTUBE BANNER IS NOW OFFICIALLY RELEASED AND IN USE!

That was strange…

Moving swiftly onwards (again)…

NEWS:

There quite a bit in the news today so let’s get going (that sounded wrong):

1. I’ve sort-of started going on twitter a lot more than I used to do before. This means if you catch me on there I’ll probably reply instantly. I’m actually on Twitter whilst writing this post and there’s 8 new tweets…quick dash off to another tab then…

2. UURR…I’ve started making the new Twitter banner based on the YouTube banner except it’s obviously blue, not red, and will eventually link to my Twitter page so you can follow me and the other guys I follow. BTW until I reach 200 followers I will follow everyone who follows me! Quick. For now though, I’ve just got a quick sneak peak: (Yeah, it is huge. I didn’t bother to crop the picture.)

3. IHateMimo777.WordPress.com! Yes, that’s my new blog shared with Candense550 and dedicated to hating the stupid Club Penguin related guy, Mimo777. It was Candense550’s idea when he was at my house (if I remember correctly) so I immediately set it up on my account and we added him as an author! We should post at least once a week but what we really need is a bunch of people who would be willing to put their alias name down and form an army to take him down. Don’t ask how we take him down, we can discuss when the time comes over Twitter. A massive Twitter rave, a massive ‘everyone do their best to hack his site’ raid, a real raid on his house (anyone want to pay for my flight to America?) or whatever should do the trick! LET’S DO THIS!

I think that’s all of the news I was talking about, now let’s look at the video I was on about…

I have quite a few videos to show you, nearly all of them involving Rowan Atkinson or the TV comedy show, ‘Harry and Paul’! I know none of them have anything to do with me or anything in-on my blog but they’re really funny!

Firstly, this is a sketch called Parking Pateweyo. It’s a piss-take of Postman Pat and I love it. There’s two videos out, here they are:

Cool? The second one:

And the last one is called Mr. Psycho-Bean. As you may have guessed it’s a great piss-take of Mr. Bean:

That’s all, guys!

Bye

MOO!


Flash Animation

Hi, Guys,

As you’ve probably guessed from the title of this post the following words and sentences are, in some way, related to Shockwave Flash Animation. Well, you’re 100% correct. I have been making an animation for my friend, Stralis33. It’s for his Club Penguin cheat site and instead of me describing it to you at ten o’clock (now) I’ll show it to you:

I haven’t linked it yet due to the fact I don’t know how but I will look in a second on YouTube for my answer on how to! I’ve got to go so, 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 – 😀


Does Anybody Put A Title?

Hiya, Peoples!

Today I have some cool stuff to show you. I am a huge fan of graffiti in the real world and I draw my own custom graffiti on paper in a special graffiti book I have (my old music school book). I scanned in my latest complete tag thing and have it here! My name when I am a graffiti artist is Benka so that you know, I have not stolen it from someone else! Anyway, The picture:

The scanner did catch a bit of the other page but so what! Hope you like it and if you have any cool ideas/improvements please comment below. Also you can have your own name done in a cool style if you want! It must be 6 or less letters/characters and I much prefer doing non-real names (internet/taken names like Benka or Dapizz). Try fiddling around with random letters and other peoples names if you don’t have an alias name. That’s how  made all of mine. 😀

Nothing much more to say really, oh, apart fro this. Like it? I made it on Photoshop with a bit of help from someone!

Awesome, huh?

Bye, Dapizz – 😀


Where Am I?

Hi, Peoples!

Strictly speaking, I do actually know where I am, but it is not where I should be! I should be at home on the computer writing this post on our laptop; not on my Mum’s school laptop (she’s a teacher) at the school where she is working at the moment. HMPH! It’s wierd here, I mean, I go to a secondary school now and to see the walls of a primary school (plastered with bright, rainbow-coloured, God-only-knows-what) feels just a bit strange! It’s holiday as well, so there’s no little people to tell rude jokes to and teach to swear. And of course Dad had to go out to where-ever to do some totally un-interesting work like buiding. Meaning I have to come here because Mum wants to sort our her classroom for next term.

Anyway, I should look on the bright side of life; there’s some caramel short-bread things on th other side of the room if I can be bothered to go all the way over there! BTW, I am not one of those stupid, fat, American boy who only know 3 words, crisps, burger and Coke! No. I’m a proud UK-ian.

Internet-wise though, does any-one out there want a code for a Twitter banner (or YouTube for that matter). The ones im my side bar have Dapiz and Dapizz1 watermarked all over them but I have a Photoshop CS file which I can edit all too easily to a different alias name! 100% FREE as well so roll-up! LOL! No…I am serious but seeing as I have had 161 people visit this site (25 yesterday and 10 today already!) and not one proper comment (Stralis33 is a real commenter but I know him in real life so I’m not sure he counts…:D). How can all of those people resist the urge to!

UUMM…I’m not really sure what to talk about anymore so I think I’ll go…

No I won’t…I’ve thought of this really random thin g a saw the other day! Have you ever noticed that a capital ‘I’ looks just like a lower case ‘L’. There was, or still is, a guy going arount YouTube posting horrid comments on peoples videos. He is pretending to be Leona Lewis, the girl who won the XFactor a couple of years back. It’s realy clever actually! Still horrible though… :L

Bye

Even More Mario

Hi People!

I have yet again got more Super Mario Bros news for you. When I was last playing Mario at my friends house I managed to get blue Toad (always my favourite character) up to about 60 lives I think! The maximum you can have is 99 so I was only around 40 lives away from Stralis33, who for some silly reason, cannot choose a character, and must be Mario. He is basically permanently on 99 lives!

Anyway, the top picture is of my character, blue Toad, on 99 lives thanks to some extra work from Stralis33 while I wasn’t there. The bottom, a picture of our power-up items menu, stocked to the max big-mushroom-wise. Again the Wii has been limited to 99 but we still achieved it by challenging every Goomba, Piranha-Flower, Ice-Koopa, etc that we could find!

Dapizz – 😀

PS: The pictures should be below here.


More Mario Mayhem…No, Stuff

Hi, Loyal Followers of Mine!

I have just found some pictures Stralis33 has sent me in my email inbox. It is of our save in New Super Mario Bros. Wii! We have pictures of strange and cool stuff. Hopefully we will come up with some more pictures to do, or even videos, in Mario, seeing as we like to sort of give ourselves our own goals…No, Challenges, to see if whatever is possible. It’s mainly stuff like the invincible/infinite/ultimate penguin thing a few posts back, that we do but to us it’s still cool entertainment. Anyway, here are the picture I was on about.

The above picture is Stralis33 as Mario with 99 lives. Getting this many (you can’t get 100 or above) means Mario will take off his cap, and unfortuneatly puts it back on as soon as you loose a life. The second, us with at least one of every power-up/superpowers.

Dapizz – 😀
