F.r.i.e.n.d.s. O.n.l.y. [27 Jun 2027|09:53pm]
[ mood | blah ]

Wee... I have my very own 'Friends Only' sign. I just like the shot (which was taken early today - 5/9/05) so much that I thought I use it for something useful! Well, I guess the picture will do alright for a 'Friends Only' sign. Heh. Do you like it??!! I know I do! =p

So to those who've been wandering around my journal, don't just wander. Do add me as a friend... that is, if you dare...

[ mood | cheerful ]

Another manipulation. Surreal. A bit hard doing this one. Actually, wanted to do something for the title 'Wish Upon A Star' but I didn't get the right stocks and such. Searched for poems and I came across one which is really good and decided to do something like it. Well, I tried. ^_^

.By The Sea. [21 Feb 2006|02:25am]
[ mood | calm ]

I thought I'd do something with Photoshop. The hardest thing to do about this manipulation is getting the weather/mood dark. Take a look at the original image of the sea here, . I've messed around with the colours/contrast and finally I think it looks ok now.

.Running out of Time. [05 Feb 2006|12:56am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Valentine's Day coming... Do you guys have plans for that known to be special day? ;-)

I just completed another photo manipulation, which is meant to be Valentine-themed. Honestly, it's hard to describe this one so lets just say it's for all those who are without a date/lover/companion or basically just waiting for someone. I was playing around with the colours too. '.Running out of Time.' features the gorgeous lady, satanicangel666 Below is the completed piece of work.

I'm not sure if I did this ok... Not exactly what I had in mind but I'm actually liking it somehow. O_o Thanks to the satanicangel666 and davecharsley for the original model's image!

And oh ya, Happy Valentine's Day in advanced to all those who celebrates it! *hearts*

[ mood | bored ]

I'm just bored... Nothing to do, so I just opened up Photoshop 7.0 and decided to do something. I really have no idea what to do. I just saw the beautiful image of Tragic Wrath at her stock account and just decided to use that image. Made it for her... Just a simple graphic too. Hope you'll like it...

.No One There. [04 Dec 2005|05:05pm]
[ mood | blank ]

"The dark, the silent, and the cold
The feeling I have come to the end of my road
Yes these are the things I spend my remaining moments with..."

I haven't been updating this journal much so I apologized for that. Wasn't in the mood to do things online and stuff for the past couple of days. Though finally I did something using Photoshop 7.0. At first, I was really in the mood to do something but then after finding stocks and editing here and there, the excitement slowly fades away until I almost thought of just to close the program and forget the whole thing. But no, I actually continued. Finally got it all done after adding layers, deleting and trying different kind of stock images for the background. Not my best I admit but it'll do for now. I really hope to get back to all these photoshop things!... *sigh*

The model in the manipulation is the gorgeous satanicangel666 and the original image of her was taken by davecharsley. All the photos which Dave showed me of her were beautiful and interesting though I had no idea of what to do with them at first. Which is why it took me quite some time to think about what to do with it and such. I had a lot of things in mind which I could do... but doesn't seem right when actually doing it. Anyways, below is the completed piece. It looks a bit plain though adding more things to it makes it all messier so I stopped right there. Hope you guys will like this one...

I meant to do this weeks ago but before, I didn't know what I could do with bene_elim pictures until now. I wanted to do a simple portrait, using the Airbrushing method so I decided to use his image for this one. Below is how it turned out.

If you've seen the original image, compare this edited version to the original. You'll then see the differences. I'm not sure if this turned out good... but all in all, I am satisfied with it still. A simple portrait. Just how I wanted it to be. ^_^ But I don't know about you guys... I hope you guys will like this one still.

Full of Images [03 Nov 2005|03:21am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Won't be long now as I have to sleep early for tomorrow! Yes, it's 3:25AM now on 3rd November so it's already Hari Raya. Selamat Hari Raya to all my beloved Muslim friends! =D I took some pictures just now of someone. Who, you asked? Well, he's my very own brother. The pictures are just for fun and some are for stocks. I was trying out the black cloth for the background so yeah. I did the make-up on him. Sucks, I know, but what the heck. I'm no good in those! And yeah.. my bro's having some kind of skin illness so that is why his cheeks (mostly) looked badly red and such. A pity really but anyways, enjoy...

.Absinthe. [08 Oct 2005|01:31am]
[ mood | bouncy ]

I've just finished a manipulation whereby the main model is actually the beautiful satanicangel666 and the photograph of her was taken by davecharsley. This is actually thought by davecharsley for the Decline Gothica models to work with other people and I'm glad to be one to help them still eventhough the long distance between myself and them. It took me 3 hours to get this completed and I hope it is worth it. I actually have a lot of things to be done within this week and so I decided to get this completed first. I happened to like how it turned out actually... I really hope you do too.

The title '.Absinthe.' was first suggested by bellablack and decided by Satanic Angel.

I hope Dave and the model don't mind the fact that I posted the completed image over at my DeviantArt gallery first as I had to post it somewhere whereby the quality of the original size image is still there (without being distorted) and there's no other better place than DeviantArt itself.

Last but not least, again I hope you guys will like it. Now I can move on to the other things that are in my things-to-do list. =)

Neoprints! [04 Aug 2005|10:48pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

It's been long since I last took neoprints! Finally took those again with my best friend, Ayu. :) It was actually on 2nd August, not 3rd but somehow I forgot about it and it was only when I've put all the '3rd August' text on it, then I remembered, hehe. We had not much money so we only took twice. Below are the few that I really like. I'll post the rest soon. By the way, we had so much fun! =D

Blair Witch? [25 Jul 2005|11:14pm]
[ mood | satisfied ]

Finally... something that I have not been doing since a long time! Today's my off day so I took the opportunity to do something with Photoshop. Took me quite some time while doing this manipulation but it's all done now. Quite simple, I must say but for now, I hope this will do.

Random Pictures... [11 Jul 2005|11:07pm]
[ mood | loved ]

Just thought I'd post some pictures up here, which I've taken for the past few days, while not being online. I've been busy with work mostly but eventhough I worked 6 days last week, I actually got to spend the time with Five a lot. While working, and not at work. Always seems to see him. =p

I've taken some pictures of him and I'll just post it here so as now you know how he looks like. Though he's all mine! Lol. ;p
Image hosted by
And yes, you guessed it right. He's a Chinese... not Malay. ;) But he's Malaysian. No matter what, I love him dearly. *hearts*
Clicky Click...Collapse )
Pardon me for posting pictures of him mostly... cos' I'm just so happy to have this baby of mine. Now I can easily visit my own journal to see his pics (whenever I miss him) too.

Aite, enough of the lovey dovey thingy. Other than that, life's still the same. Always busy with work. And oh yes, I've heard about the London tragedy recently. My heart goes to all those people over there... and those families who are related to the ones involved. I hope for the better for everyone soon!

Nonetheless, I'll try to ask for more days off next week. 'Til then, take care everyone! Muacks! *Much love*

Dragon's Lair [29 Jun 2005|04:50pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

I was bored so I decided to open up Adobe Photoshop and play with it. Honestly, I had no idea of what I should do! I was totally blank already, which sucks. Though I remembered darkdelirium beautiful picture and thought of using it. Oh yes, I had asked her for the permission to use her images so for those who thinks that you could simply just use those images like I did, do ask her permission first. =) Below's how it turned out. I decided to create something like as if it's in a different world (cartoon graphic kind) or so but I'm not sure whether it turned out ok. :s Doing something like this that start off with no ideas (totally blank!) and such isn't an easy thing, I tell ya.

Sorry if the image is kind of big. Thought of putting it under the cut but that might not get your attention easily since my blog isn't that interesting to read at first sight. ;)

Model; Thanks to beautiful darkdelirium!
Mask; The talented model herself!
Photographer; Chris Dean

Brushes thanks to Adobe Photoshop 7.0, me and PS Laboratory, I think. I've forgotten to save the URL but I remembered something like Laboratory. :s Used a stock (the wall/door) from

I'm not sure whether I could post it at my DeviantART but if darkdelirium lets me, then I will. =)

Birthday Countdown! [22 Jun 2005|01:28am]
[ mood | peaceful ]

Lol, shameless countdown. My birthday's on this coming Monday, which is 27th June. So gifts, anyone? ;p Hehe, nah... I'm not expecting anything from online friends nor offline friends. Firstly because it's most likely that not more than 10 people remembers my birthday (sad but true, lol) without me reminding them, that is. Secondly, not many people are really close to me to actually know what I'd like for a birthday gift and such. Besides my family and few close-knit friends, of course. It's alright though cos' I'm used to not getting gifts or being remembered for my birthday. It's just a birthday... but of course, it would be nice to actually get something from someone, don't you agree? ;)

Anyways, yes... few more days to go until I'll finally be 18!!!! Not that it'll be much of a difference... but hey, I'm getting older. =)
