Dare To Dream (xubious's journal)

Name:
xubious
Birthdate:
22 January 1971
I was introduced to LiveJournal by my wife hermyonegranger, and I joined and created my own account on April 19, 2005. I created it to use as a graphics and personal journal.

Since then I have been taking some lessons from my wife in making icons and other graphics using Photoshop Elements 2.0, and intend on upgrading soon to Photoshop Elements 4.0

While I’m on the subject, feel free to explore my wife's journal where you will find many beautiful icons and graphics, as well as her own gradients, textures, light textures, brushes, ect. She also runs a Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire icon contest community, called gof_stills. She is also running a Gilmore Girls icon contest community called ggirls_stills, and a community for all writers of fiction and fan-fiction called _thewritersblok. Feel free to check them out.


I am co-moderator of a community called _thewritersblok, which is a community for all writers of fiction and fan-fiction and is open to beginners as well as experianced writers and you are encouraged to check it out and get involved, or you can even just watch the community if you are a reader of fiction or fan-fiction.

I am also a co-moderator of the community gof_stills, which in addition to it's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire icon contests, is now also running LIMS contests (Last Icon Maker Standing). All graphic makers of all experiance levels are encouraged to come join in on the fun! (See community for rules and more information).

I am beginning to learn how to make my own graphic images and will be posting them in my journal. Many of those graphics may contain one or more elements from various sources that you can find listed at the resource link below.

The following link will take you to a resource list entry where I will be listing the sources of new brushes, bases, colorbases, gradients, textures and other graphic resources that I will be using, and I will update this list as I obtain more.
Graphic Resources Here

I am also beginning to make some of my own bases, color bases, brushes, textures, and gradients which I will also post in my journal. Below I will be putting the links to all of my graphics entries so they will be easier to access and can be found without having to search through all my entries to find them. Thank you for visiting my journal. Feel free to look around and to make comments to my journal entries.

Inside your head, there is only fire. Around your heart, the dragon whispers of naked pain, and of despair.

"She will die you know..."

And every atom of him screamed to the Force, "How can I let her die?"

The Force had no answer for him.

The dragon, on the other hand, did.

"All things die, Anakin Skywalker. Even stars burn out".
