I know where I'm going wrong...

Not in life, however. Different question entirely. I'm just talking about coloring in Photoshop...

Here's the problem: I have a difficult time seperating the line from the white, if that makes any sense. In other words, I scan in a drawing (usually in greyscale) and I have a black, white, and various shades of grey drawing. For the most part, the line is black and the empty space is white (following me here? Yeah, this is sooo-ooo complicated...). However, there's also a certain amount of grey in the line and empty space too. So I try to get rid of as much as I possibly can (painting over it, whatnot...).

Now, when I actually go to paint, the problem I have is that I can't preserve the black line. Well, no... no, I can preserve it because I'm not an idiot... (yah... layers, aye?) but I can't figure out a good, clean way for me to break the line from the white so that I could, say, put the line above the painted areas. Top layer. Nice and clean.

Does that make any sense at all? And I only have a limited edition of Photoshop, if that makes any difference. But... *pleads and begs* Help with this would be appreciated greatly. Muchly. Mucho muchly...

Ok...

I have to go to my choir concert...

Ugh... >.< I'm mucho not liking choir this year...

I'm not liking much of anything this year. I need new friends. I have no friends. Why do I have no friends? Why am I a pathetic loner hermit? I swear to god people are going to start thinking Amy and I are joined at the hip. She was sick today and I actually called her from school...

Gads... I'm not even self-sufficient enough to get through the school day by myself.

Am getting ride to concert from Morgan. I hope. I hope, I hope, I hope because this is a part of my grade.

Oh well. Get one concert done, two more before Pops! ^___^ God, I love Pops. I'm thinking about trying to do 'Wonderful' for a solo. Although I did kinda make a pact with Brandy to sing J-Pop... oh well. That'll probably go down in flames... and 'Wonderful' would be so fun and angsty...

I'd probably cry like the doofus I am.

Hmm... some kids commandeered the PA system today. It wasn't nearly as exciting as it could have been. The best bit was one of them seying something like "This is the voice of God". And even that was pretty pathetic. It would have been way cooler had they had a script or something.

I'm listening to 'Hanging by a Moment' by Lifehouse over and over again. I do not know why. Just am. And I've got it stuck on the Laguna skin because it seemed like a good idea at the time...

I actually saw Lifehouse live, by the way. My first Everclear concert, when Everclear and Lifehouse were the opening bands for Matchbox 20. We didn't even stay for all of Matchbox 20. Everclear was damn well enough. And that night there was a blizzard. We had the next day off from school... I miss...

When I was a kid...

I used to have the biggest crush on Basil of Baker Street (from the Disney movie "The Great Mouse Detective").

Now I really, really want to write about him. But I... I... I can't think of anyone to pair him up with except Ratigan!!! >.<

Make that two rape fics coming up... urg...
