Much better now... [May. 10th, 2002|02:47 am]
Kurt Onstad
[Current Mood |okayokay]

Having gotten away from work, and spent some time with friends, I feel much more relaxed. Court was interesting tonight. It was my first night as Premier (or Duke), which is basically like being Vice-President. If the Queen is unable to perform her duties, then it's my job to take over temporarily. It's weird. I've been part of this group for about three years now, but in a lot of ways, I still feel like one of the "new guys." I'm still a little surprised to be one of the regents.

In other news, I got home tonight, and felt like doing something semi-productive, so, I finally took advantage of my Paid Member status, and uploaded some new userpics, including changing my default. As has been pointed out, my old default (now keyword "smug") wasn't a very flattering picture of me. I think this new one is better looking, although now that I'm shaving to a goatee/Van Dyke instead of a full beard, it's not as accurate as it used to be. But, none of my pictures of myself are more recent than that, so...Oh well.

Yay!

Paid users get 10 icons to play with. I hit that limit pretty hard setting up Dr. Lobster's journal, as you'll recall.

You had three icons available as a free user. I'm not sure what the limit is on permanent accounts, though. It's supposed to be higher, at least.

Yes, I remember...

I'm up to five pictures, just using images of myself that are already on my computer. I'd like a little more variety, however. All of them, except for "Cartoon," are pretty damn similar...And, other then being a drawing as opposed to a photograph, "Cartoon" really isn't that far off, either...

Oh yeah.

This one is pretty different too.

what else?

I'm guessing when you get access to a scanner for a few minutes, you'll end up with an icon of your current look, a picture of speedball (perhaps your airbrushed t-shirt), the picture of you as speedball, Option Zero's spiky blue hair, and the car accident pic that everyone just loves to look at. And perhaps a splash mountain one.

Between then and now, I suppose you could zoom in uncomfortably close to random parts of your face, maybe devide one photo into 100x100 quadrants. That sort of thing.

I'll probably be making myself some new icons pretty soon. They won't follow any of those suggestions.

and, hang on a sec...

Wasn't there a newer drawing, to go with your newer comic?

I seem to remember showing you how to colorize it.

Maybe...

If there was, it was on my roommate's computer. There's a few things on there I never got onto this one...

Damn.

The advantages of having one's own computer...

Looks like I still have it, although you've got no eyes, and arguably no mouth either.

Of course, you could just use Kurtcho for more variety on the cartoon...

I didn't appreciate this icon until now...

I have animated gifs set not to loop on my computer, so it wasn't until rereading this at work that I saw how truly disturbing this monkey is...I will now have this image seared on my brain. Thank you.

Kurt

P.S. I can't draw eyes and a mouth that fit this cartoon... What was I thinking?
