Art and even more tech...

[001] Just discovered nemu-nemu and am floored by how cute the webcomic is <3

[002] Thanks to a certain film, there are dragons EVERYWHERE this weekend, but the most adorable one might be this one done by lokabrenna.

[003] For more insanely wonderful sketches and art, aidosaur's latest post is chock full of lovely art that made me all *A*

[004] Even MOAR artists to track: littlemute | steam_pilot | amei | fernblossom | phonixa | saharaam | tongari | wredwrat | oxboxer | silverhalo | arts

[005] It all started with DevArt (doesn't it always?) - found a bit of shiny that used a 3D program and went hunting for tutorials. Hit the motherload at InstantShift.com: 4D Cinema | Maya | 3D Studio Max | Illustrator | After Effects | CSS

There are also other sections on the site worth taking a look at - it reminds me of smashing magazine and tutsplus that way since it has both showcases and sections for stuff like fonts.

[006] On the topic of fonts, thanks to this post I want to try using font-face embedding in my LJ reboot. What is font embedding? Well check this page out for a visual example! If you're using the latest firefox, opera or safari browser, it should show properly :D

There are several places with fonts that are not only free but allow you to embed them online, such as here, here and most especially here.

Also, a nifty little site I discovered is WhatTheFont, for when you find a cool font being used and have no clue how to identify it.

[007] The site that actually started the forray into font embedding, InspectElement has great showcases of its own (like the one here) and some handy articles like Advanced Photoshop Techniques You Might Not Be Aware Of

[008] Someday I will get around to adding the Read It Later bookmarklet so I don't forget important posts ^^

[009] Played with Art Rage and Photoshop and whipped out some alternate submissions for April:

The third one was sort of like lots of little bits of Candy and the last one a bit like folliage of trees - couldn't figure out what peeps might think of for the fourth though haha XD
I LOVE #1 and #3 reminds me of a mosaic-y type stain-glass window. I like them both. Still have yet to do something for April and get it in. With everything going on I might have to wait. D: Do they do this every month? I hadn't thought to ask that in my comment on your other post.
Thanks *hugs* and yeah it definitely looks like a monthly thing ^_^ I'm wondering how they're going to fit submissions into polls, especially if there are several dozen each month though o_O
I have no idea. Either they will have multiple polls in a post or they'll just have to pare it down to what they think are the best ones? And then do it that way. Otherwise I have no idea. Unless they just keep doing polls to wheedle it down to just one or a few for the winner. I guess we'll see!
I like all of the headers. But #2 really grabs my attention. =]

That is one disgustingly cute webcomic
I really like the 3rd header.

And thank you for WhatTheFont, omg. :D
