Spruce Up

Some changes to the site: the Front page features my main work more prominently. Also, I made a new banner image for The Overzealous Healer. I really like it! It’s used in Chapter 39 because of a flashback. I’m going to use it more in the future.

I love the ancient Chinese flags. I think the style is called Warring States because that’s the time period they’re from? They’re so extra with the strips and fringes. The fringes look very aggressive and impressive. Well, even if they spend the time cutting and sewing fringes, they probably saved money by painting on the designs instead of embroidering like European flags do.

How to Design Mockup in Photoshop
This video was very helpful. I recently learned about product mockups and I had no idea these were a thing! What the heck is this black magic?! Joking, I’m too fkin used to drawing in video editing software, but Photoshop really does have so many features.

I took an image of a Chinese flag and whitened it, airbrushed out the existing design, then made a mockup template.
