Hidamari Sketch Manga, Volume 4
2009-09-02 21:00:00
It's Guest Review Wednesday once again on Okazu and once again, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome George R. for this week's guest review!The fourth volume of Aoki Ume's Hidamari Sketch manga (????????) came out in Japan this past January. I was a bit slow in picking it up, but am glad that I did. It doesn't have a deep involved plot or more than hints of Yuri, but then again Hidamari Sketch never has. If you've likedthe previous manga, light novels, or anime, you'll probably enjoy this as well.Ume-sensei has a strong cast of characters already and we can again enjoy the amusement in their daily lives. But she doesn't make them carry the entire load in this character-driven manga. The first extra we meet is Yuzawa Arisa, a senior art major, who is the only one left in the art room to answer Yuno's phone which she forgot there. She can't resist Yuno's cuteness and has her pose for a sketch.The end of the school year brings exams and Yuno does poorly enough to need to take...

Hidamari Sketch Light Novel: Hidamari School Life
2009-07-23 04:17:00
I really intended on writing my own review today. Then I ended up sacrificing some hours to the gods of Tech Support and by the time I was done, I just couldn't do it. I just couldn't. Sorry. Bravely, George R. has leapt into the gap to save my shattered nerves and so, I commend him and his review to your care. It's all yours, George! I enjoyed the first Hidamari Sketch novel enough to go right on and try the second one, and I was not disappointed. Hidamari Sketch: Hidamari School Life (?????????????School Life) concentrates on Yuno's life at school, as opposed to the first one at her apartment. We are again treated to a set of short stories, where the characters are the focus, not the action. Autumn has come to Hidamari-sou and tomorrow is the day for everyone to change from summer to winter school uniforms. I've always been amused that the Japanese schools change their uniforms according to the calendar regardless of what the weather may actually be. Apparently consistency sc...
Pencil Sketch Effect in Photoshop Action
2009-06-25 08:35:00
This morning I surfed down the net to find pencil sketch effect tutorials. There are obviously lots of different techniques to produce this kind of effect into a photo. I followed several tuts, to compare the results and I felt like I needed to find the very quick one, yet it should have great result too. So, I came across this (relatively old) tutorial post at Jeff Flowers' Written by Jeff Flowers himself :). He wrote a smart tutorial which is very easy to follow about "How To Turn A Photo Into A Sketch".Source Photo: Danny North on FlickrI decided to create a set of photoshop action based on this step by step tutorial. In Step 3, Jeff Flowers set the radius blur into 6px (Filter » Blur » Gaussian Blur), but in this photoshop action, I set it into 15px. Jeff has also noted that: this all depends on your image.Even you will have instant graphic effect using this photoshop action set in a blink of an eye, I think you would still need to understand how this effect is produced. ...
Sunshine Sketch, Volume 3 (English)
2009-06-22 23:43:00
4-koma comics, the Japanese analogy to the western comic strip, tend to follow a pattern. Like comic strips, they focus on talking heads, doing rather formulaic things. Think of any mainstream comic strip or even popular webcomics, and you can see the pattern pretty quickly. The most common formula is two to four people, conversations about topical or typical situations, with a punchline that relies on irony, wordplay or a twist of meaning. 4-koma are similar, although they rely a little bit more on the vaudevillian formulas of Manzai comedy. This makes them a little repetitive over time. Crazy cosplay-obsessed teacher will always be crazy and cosplay-obsessed. Wacky offbeat girl who is always hungry will be wackily offbeat - and hungry. The ambiguously gay couple will always be ambiguously gay and average girl will always "try her best."Which brings us to Sunshine Sketch, Volume 3 in which all of the above is what it is. No new ground is covered. Instead of plot complications, we g...
Site Sketch 101
2009-06-15 17:38:00
For several years now, I have been scowering the internet searching for resources that can be used to produce amazing websites for Christian sites.  I have searched for textures, graphics, icons, tutorials, themes, content management systems, and more.  After years of research, I now have hundreds of resources at my disposal which I fully intend on sharing with you here at Site Sketch 101. I remember what a depressing feeling it was when I was just getting started and I was having so much difficulty finding tools that I could use to create websites that actually looked appealing to potential visitors.  I know first hand how difficult it can be to set up a site when you are just starting out in this line of work. Click Here to Visit Site Sketch 101 It?s those memories of working so hard only to create only mediocre websites that are my inspiration to create this website.  I want to take my years of experience and pour them out so every one of you who has a desire to create amazing, ...

Hidamari Sketch Light Novel: Youkoso Hidamarisou e
2009-05-21 03:15:00
Thank you, thank you George R. for providing us with another guest review. My head is exploding and I'm running out of the house, and like magic, there in my inbox is a review. Phew. Anyway, once again, our applause and thanks to guest Reviewer here at Okazu, George! After enjoying Memories Off 2nd ~ Precious Hearts, I decided to find more that Higurashi Chaboh had written. A novelization of Hidamari Sketch caught my eye. I enjoyed the manga (the first three volumes are out in English as Sunshine Sketch, Volume 1 and Volume 2 have been reviewed here on Okazu) and was curious to see how the transition from 4-koma comic to light novel would work, so into my cart went Hidamari Sketch: Youkoso Hidamarisou E. The illustrations are spot on, though few, but that's to be expected since Aoki Ume, the original manga-ka, did them. While they're good pictures of the characters, they don't illustrate events in the story. I feel the strength of Hidamari Sketch lies in the char...

First Sketch: Zagato Perana Z-one
2009-02-25 15:22:00
Zagato will unveil a concept called the Perana Z-One at the Geneva Motor Show next week, commemorating the company's 90th anniversary. With a long hood and short rear deck, the supercar has been given proportions befitting a grand tourer.Though the coachbuilder has not provided much information on the two-seat concept, the gaping oval grille and large air intakes above the sill and below the shoulderline indicate the car is powered by a large front-mounted conventional powerplant. Large vertical headlamps flank the hood, which features still more mesh-covered air outlets for dissipating heat. In profile, the concave fender morphs through the door to become a pronounced rear haunch. The grille's shape is also repeated at the rear on a broader scale, as is the headlamp design, with smaller circular lamps encased within the taillamp housing. The concept's double bubble roof, flowing from the steeply raked windscreen through to the backlight, is also a definitive Zagato design element.

First Sketch: ItalDesign Concept
2009-02-21 08:45:00
Six months ago, we were blown away by the performance of the Italdesign Quaranta Concept Car when our very own executive editor Matt Stone took an exclusive first drive. Now, the Geneva 2008 show-stopper is about to be one-upped by Italdesign itself in the form of a new unnamed concept that will bow at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in two weeks."The fastest hybrid concept car in the world" Italdesign's press release boasts. We were impressed when the Quaranta topped 125 mph at the test track last year and hit 60 mph in under six seconds, but that was nothing compared to what this new car will do. Italdesign says the unnamed car, co-developed with Brit Frazer Nash, will hit 62 mph in under four seconds on its way to a top speed of 186 mph. And you remember how the Quaranta got about 37.5 mpg? That's kid's stuff. This car will travel 31 miles on a quarter of a gallon of gas. Do the math and that works out to 124 mpg. To top it all off, it emits just 0.18 lbs of CO2 per mile. To put th...

Tonight, Conan O’Brien says farewell to the show he’s called home for the past sixteen years. And in honor of that fact, this TV Addict wanted to take a moment to share with you our all-time favorite LATE NIGHT NIGHT WITH CONAN O’BRIEN sketch. Agree, disagree, think it’s slightly inappropriate that our all-time favorite sketch doesn’t exactly involve Conan but rather Triumph the Insult Comic Dog? Go ahead and post a link to your favorite sketch, preferably one that actually involves Conan, in the comments below. UPDATE: Just a heads up to all of you planning to DVR (or PVR in Canada) tonight’s final show. According to LATE NIGHT head researcher Aaron Bleyaert, who has been Tweeting tonight’s final show, “Tonight’s show will be 6 mins longer than normal!” So be sure to set your DVR (or PVR in Canada) accordingly.

Photoshop tutorial: Photo to sketch
2008-11-27 19:42:00
Example of Photoshop photo to sketch tutorial I’m always trying to improve my prowess in the area of graphics/graphic design, and at some point I stumbled upon an Spoono’s photoshop tutorial for changing photos to colour sketches. Most of the tutorials that deal with photos to sketches are only for black and white (pencil) sketches, so I thought I’d share this. It’s one of those tutorials that has to be used properly, or at least you can’t overuse it, and I’ll admit, it’s a bit difficult to find a perfect use for it, but the other day I was creating a landing page for an ad and used it to put a server configuration diagram graphic onto a ripped piece of paper to fit in better with the landing page. You can see the original image here.

Sketch and Slap Stick Comedy “I Love It”
2008-06-01 02:36:00
  In my opinion an all time great comedian left us this week, Harvey Korman. I loved the years that he starred on The Carol Burnett Show in the 60’s and 70’s and then Mama’s family in the 80’s. Back in the day Harvey and Tim Conway were unstoppable and could make me laugh until it hurt way down deep in my gut, it was great. Check out what the Los Angeles Times had to say about Korman and then watch my personal favorite video of him and Conway in action and I hope you will laugh as hard as I did. By Valerie J. Nelson, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer May 30, 2008 Harvey Korman, an Emmy-winning comedic actor best known for playing the self-described “luminous second banana” for a decade on television’s “The Carol Burnett Show” and for starring in such Mel Brooks films as “Blazing Saddles,” has died. He was 81. Korman, who had undergone several major operations, died Thursday at UCLA Medical Center of complications from ...

Improv Everywhere?s Coolest Sketch Yet (IMHO)

Improv Everywhere is a group based in New York City that gathers people to gether to cause “scenes of chaos and joy in public places.” Some of their events include getting 200 people to all stop at the same time at Grand Central Station, for five minutes. They also put together a musical in a mall’s food court.
