spaceranger: Building models, mostly Sci-fi and aircraft subjects. Lots of scratch built projects. I also like to read Sci-fi and fantasy novels and I love films both classics and classic B movies.
spaceranger: I have many favorites, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson and Humphrey Bogart of classic Hollywood. Sean Connery and Morgan Freeman are always impressive and I'll watch anything they are in.
spaceranger: Always hard to pick one but I would say Blade Runner was my favorite movie experience especially for it's visual style.
spaceranger: One Froggy Evening, a classic Chuck Jones cartoon.
spaceranger: I have several Led Zeppelin is way up top, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Seger. Good Rock and Roll with a lot of heart. I also love the Beatles and the Bee Gees as well as Queen.
spaceranger: Again I have several but I have to say Imagine by John Lennon always moves me deeply.
spaceranger: Days gone by I'd say Star Trek and Twilight Zone. More recently Red Dwarf and Doctor Who. I love British film and TV and most everything written by Stephen Moffat.
spaceranger: John Lennon for such beauty and love in his music and lyrics that made us all think.
spaceranger: I did have a great dog Smokey who passed away more than ten years ago. In her I saw a loving, sweet, gentle and intelligent creature. I never got another pet because the loss for me is too much to bear.
spaceranger: I watch some baseball and tennis but in general I'm not a big fan.
spaceranger: Home. I have many interests that make me pretty much a home body. I don't travel often although I'd love to see England and Australia.
spaceranger: A great restaurant in New York called The Palm Too makes a filet mignon and lobster tail with the best mashed potatoes.
spaceranger: Sky blue.
spaceranger: Van Gogh.
spaceranger: Source Contests.
spaceranger: Brushes, I love to paint digitally and in photo manipulation combined with the eraser brush at a low opacity makes blending feel like painting. Equally the transform tool makes changing shapes easy.
spaceranger: I use Gaussian blur a lot, sometimes with added noise for textures. Liquify used sparingly can tweak shapes nicely.
spaceranger: The diversity, both of the members and the entries.
spaceranger: Petty arguments and rude comments.
spaceranger: A great many it's wonderful to have friends from all over the world. It just shows how much the same we all are. (I know that sounds so "Hippie" like but it's true)
spaceranger: I'm on line most every day. I work on a Mac so I always have pxleyes on and I check in during the day several times.
spaceranger: CS4 and CS5, Illustrator and Corel on occasion. Google Sketchup also.
spaceranger: In Source Contests the creative use of the source is most important to me. I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy so those entries tend to draw my attention. Originality and quality of the work is also important.
I don't like ugliness nor blood and gore.
spaceranger: Too many to name them all, Jaskier goes back to the old PST days and always impresses me with his great beauty. Vicspa has been my friend for years and introduced me to photoshop and PST. Solkee was my mod mentor and has become a great friend and a talented member.
spaceranger: In the 90's I did some Illustrator work but I didn't get into photoshop until about five years ago.
