Re: late life crisis

Just a thought... Is there a way to change the hexes from a platform to a pillar?

C’mon, Duck, take the challenge! Make a Duck-Original out of flotsam and jetsam you grab up around that scary studio.

Sure, why not. I'll take a look around and see what comes together.

I do say, the onion moon is a good one.

I think astronomers should pick one of those lunar seasons and actually call it the Onion Moon.

Re: Little Soccer Sister

[...] I've never found that one click filters get me where I want to go, but using some of those in conjunction with PS with layers and masks can get me closer.
