Hey hey, y'all! Well, I survived Brisbane Boils 2018 by just hiding inside all day. The UV was EXTREME and the temps around 38C (100F for norteamericanos), so good thing I did! Here's another good thing I did: a wallpaper of Alter Ego from Danganronpa for Michael's cosplay of Chihiro Fujisaki.

I've recently switched to Affinity from Adobe, so I had to figure out how to do some of the tricks that were obviously used on the original Alter Ego art to make it look interlaced in Affinity. In Photoshop, it would've just been a Filter. Wham, bam, thank you, ma'am, it'd be done in a Flash (guffaw!). However, there didn't seem to be a filter in Affinity Designer, so I took manual control and made my own interlacing effect. I'm not really sure why there's interlacing since Alter Ego is only ever shown on modern monitors, but I guess that's still visual language for "This is a screen." XD

Wow! Michael's cosplay turned out really good! And the wallpaper on the laptop really adds to the effect. Really good idea, Michael, and great job on the cosplay! I'm looking forward to what's next. :D

Well, I'm going to try to ink some more SGVY Edda 15.2 today. Mindless inking in the aircon sounds like a lot of fun. Go go go!
