Discordia
the more we talk of what it is
the more we know     it is not
Discordia
that waits for you to make a good point
          at the sky
                        with a sword
but guess whose face is up there, pops,
      You
open the doors of the advent calendar
Discordia
is hidden in more ways than five
has revealed
in an alphabet soup you slurp
letter by letter
telling a story of hide and seek in your parent's bed
and finding a broken condom
                            in your head
                                         Discordia

These are awesome, Cramulus!

Sort of reminds me of the book of the subgenius, except better.

SHIT!!! I'd left out the ones you said were for Prophetica Discordia. But used the windmill and the eris is coming and a couple of other ones. Fine, I'll take them out but you now owe me 4 new pics :argh!:

Just trawl through the PICS thread and use anything I didn't use. Something like half of the images in issue #5 come from that thread.

I'm making some images for Cain's Interregnum series. X-posting them ITT

I'm still a novice at photoshop. Does anyone have any sick-ass filters they'd like to share?

(this applies to GIMP btw, but Photoshop has equivalent functions)

I'm having fun with the "unsharp mask" filter lately (set the treshold to 0 though, it only seems to make stuff ugly). You can make black/white images look real grainy like, that way. Sometimes it works better if you do a selective/edge preserving blur first, then sharpen, and subtly fade that onto the original layer.

Also, if you're layering stuff like that image, it usually works good to make the back layers a bit more blurry or darken them, or fade them slightly to some "far away colour" (greyish blue usually) (I use "Curves" to change the colours), it creates a wonderful sense of depth. See my "many yellow Rogers" image for an example.

It also works on existing images, you carefully select what you would consider "far away" with a poly lasso tool or something, copy that, paste as new layer, make sure you keep the selection and then apply the blur and/or colour curves. This is a great way to create focus on a single part of a busy image. It works better if you copy/paste the background as a selected layer on top, because if you blur, it won't blur the edges of the foreground with it.

Another fun trick I did a while ago was to take the Red channel of some image, used that as a mask/selection and apply a strong blur to all channels. That way only the parts of the image with a strong Red component got blurred. It was an interesting effect.

Also, play with the Channel Mixer, to mix red into green or blue, or to create a compelling grayscale version of an image. You can play with the colours in more subtle and natural-looking ways than you would do by shifting hues. Also, remember that with cheaper digital cameras, usually the Green channel has the least noise, the Red channel has the most interesting/contrast-rich image, and the Blue is generally worthless and noisy.

that's some stuff I've been doing lately. if you got tricks, share them too :)
