Sometimes I think my subconscious is smarter then I am. Yesterday, I had the urge to make new Clannad wallpapers so I looked at what I had saved, realized there was a bunch of nice scans that I could use and whipped some up. Today, I wake up and think to myself that I should have done something for Mother’s Day here when I realized that I have a bunch of Clannad wallpapers that I made yesterday. 🙂
Over the weekend, I decided to look for photoshop tutorials that would increase my relatively lackluster abilities. I found several that were helpful and as a result, I ended up with a new banner and a desktop wallpaper. I also learned several very handy commands that I didn’t know photoshop had. The wallpaper is the the picture above, click to get the full size. It’s sized 1280 x 1024 and I did it myself (though I mostly followed a tutorial 😉 ).
I really hate to see my Nagisa banner go. She’s by far and away my favorite Key girl and one of my favorite characters of all time. I had intended to keep the Nagisa banner up until the end of Clannad but after making the new banner, I couldn’t wait to put that one up.
And finally, I put up a new poll question as you can see to the right. This one will probably stay up till the end of the winter season when I plan to run another “Favorite Character of Toradora” poll and see if the results differ from the last one that I ran at the half-way point.
First off, just a note that because I spent so long writing up my influential anime list, I didn’t get to my weekly anime review post and since today is now thursday, I’m going to just do a bi-weekly one and hopefully post it on Sunday or Monday.
So instead of rushing the weekly review post, I decided to make a few quick Clannad wallpapers, mainly just cropping large pics down into convenient wallpaper size.
My family and I took a little vacation this past weekend to Lake Erie and if I had to sum up the experience in one word it would be – awesome. We’ve been to the lake before, over the last dozen or so years we have often gone to the beach at Presque Isle in Pennsylvania, but spending 3 whole days so near to it was great. While there I had the chance to take a bunch of nice pictures and being the sharing type, I’m going to post a few of my favorites in convenient wallpaper sizes.
Maybe it shouldn’t be a shock to me but, by far and away, the most popular post on this blog has been the first Soul Eater Wallpaper post. I’ve been meaning to make more so that people coming here for Soul Eater wallpaper can have a selection. Of course, It wasn’t until getting back from my vacation and in the midst of trying to catch up on my anime and writing posts I meant to write last week that I felt the urge to make this wallpaper.
