Henry the Tiger

Hi! I'm sorry because, I've not been able to write that often here in my blog, besides I'm not that creative to write new things and tutorials that often, but that is another story :) Let me tell you a little bit, of how I've been doing in the last months...Finally I ended one big project that was assigned to me in my job, and so far I learned a lot of things related to training course design, including: recording audio, recording videos, and what I like the most... preparing custom graphics for the courses. At the end, I think the... [Lire la suite]

Time to share!

Hi guys and maybe some girl out there :) Like some people know, I work in an airline, particularly in the training department creating stuff for maintenance technicians. In the last course that I helped to create that is about "Repair Stations" (if the title looks scary, the content of the manual is more scary). In a way to help to avoid pain to maintenance technicians that study the course, I created some pictures and stuff for the course, and one of the things I did are these tools, and this time I would like to share...

Highlight Zone

Hi, how are you? I hope you are fine, and if you've been visiting my blog looking for some nice and easy tutorial and don't found any new tutorials, I'm sorry because I've not written in a while. I promise I will try to write more often :) OK lets start... It would be nice if you and me had an personal aircraft, don't you think so? just like famous rock bands like Iron Maiden. Lets dream a little and imagine... if you would have an aircraft you've probably were the pilot of the aircraft (although, that requires a lot of study and... [Lire la suite]

Painful Source of Inspiration part 2: Greeting Cards with Stylized Smoke

Hi, I'm having some troubles writing to this place, my blog, but I hope I can continue to share my thoughts and tips with you for a long time. Ok, so in a previous post I said that I 'll write about my not so well experience with a girl and here I go... I think most of the things are said in the previous post, only the conclusion and what I learned remains. I want to start with the following quote: "Why so serious?" -The Joker (from the movie The Dark Knight) The following quote can explain this better: ... [Lire la suite]

I think I will post later, the second part of my Painful Source of Inspiration series, because I need to re-organize the order of events and my thoughts about that :D Ok, let me share with you some tips about this chalkboard that I did some weeks ago. (FIGURE 1) FIGURE 1  Teacher's day chalkboard. Initially I made this chalkboard to put it in the home page of the Moodle LMS that we use in my job, but like many times have occurred to me in the past :( I was told to remove the chalkboard from the home page. So I... [Lire la suite]

Painful Source Of Inspiration Part 1: Greeting Cards Using Xach Effect

Hi everybody :)Some time ago I said that I'll not use drawings or paintings to impress girls and get dates, because "those times have passed away and now I know a bit more of how to conquer girls", it seems that I never should have said that. I met a girl three months ago, normally I would not try to hit on her, because when I first got introduced to her she was working in another department of the company, and also I rarely interacted or see her, but then one day she asked me for help in programming stuff that she was...

Billboard Text

Hi :)Sorry I said I'll post a new tutorial and then nothing, but better late than never!! This time we'll make a kind of nice billboard, so let's get started! First try to make a cool background, maybe using a gradient or photos of yours. I pick some of my photos when I went to the soccer games of my country and then scaled and located them in the canvas. (FIGURE 1) FIGURE 1  My cool background (in one of the photos is one of my friends with a drunk man we found). Pick a cool font and make some text. I think a nice font... [Lire la suite]

Merry Christmas!

Hi, I don't know if in your country is the same, but here in America and in El Salvador the 24th of December we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, so maybe after the dinner with your family and friends, the drinks and the fireworks, take a few minutes and think that maybe this day long time ago, was born a man that taught to us how to really love each other, and a show of that was that he died for us and with that he gives us hope! Finally the snowman and I wish you a merry Christmas! * In a next post I'll tell you the... [Lire la suite]

Hi :)It's since a while isn't? it seems that I got running out of ideas, but I'll try to post something useful. By the way let me tell you that I've graduated from the university at last!! 7 years have passed away and now "por fin" I got the degree in computer science and also I got a lot of stress, fatigue and a debt with the bank, jeje. But after all I think it worth it. Another thing that happened in November, was also my birthday, now I'm 25 years old, the famous "cora" of dollar (here in El Salvador we use... [Lire la suite]

Like I promised, let's create a Telecommunications Antenna using Inkscape, I'm using Inkscape 0.46 Let's begin. Pick the Bezier Path Tool and while pressing the CTRL key draw a line at 75 degrees. Notice that when you hold the CTRL key you can draw straight lines and also the angle of the line change at 15 degrees when you move the mouse. (FIGURE 1) FIGURE 1  Drawing a straight line at 75 degress with the Bezier Path Tool. Now select your just drawn line and go to the Fill and Stroke dialog and change the line's... [Lire la suite]
