Hovering Slideshow Base. (optimized for Chrome)

This isn’t really a tutorial since I’m not really explaining, but I think giving out a base will be easier than explaining each line.

The main trick is having a div inside an other. The interior one having a superior width, the exterior one being only like a frame.  

Since the images are set as background, you can easily add buttons or text or whatever in your pannels.


 overflow-y:hidden; /*no vertical scroll*/}
 {width:1200px; /*the more you'll have pannels the more you'll raise its value*/}

-webkit-transition: opacity 1s linear;-webkit-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;-moz-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;-o-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;}

#content:hover #title

background-position:-150px; /*value is (-)width*/
-webkit-transition: opacity 1s linear;-webkit-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;-moz-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;-o-transition: all 1s ease-in-out;}

{width:500px; /*width of your pannel Backgorund image*/
<div id='slideshow'>
<div id='content'>
<div id='title'>choose your path</div>
<div class='pannel' style='background-image:url('');'>
</div><!--pannel 1-->
<div class='pannel' style='background-image:url('');'>
</div><!--pannel 2-->
<div class='pannel' style='background-image:url('');'>
</div><!--pannel 3-->

Golgothassterror: art post


I just went back through over 900 liked posts and dug out all the art tutorials so i can keep track of them. I guess this might be helpful to some of you guys, so here you go.

Here we go then!


Alchemy - this is a really fun program. You play around making abstract shapes until you start to see something in them, kind of like a Rorschach test. Then you use the shapes as a base to draw it from.
MyPaint - a pretty decent painting program that also has the benefit of working on Unix systems.
openCanvas 1.1 - I haven’t used openCanvas in years but it was a nice program with a pretty unique feel to it.
ArtRage - Only used this a couple of times donkey’s years ago just before I got oC, but I’ve heard good things about it.
The GIMP - In a similar vein to Photoshop, but free. I couldn’t get on with it when I tried it out a few years ago, but it’s pretty popular and is available on Unix systems and Macs.

Sketchbook copic: a bit different program


Photoshop - Standard painting fare. Probably the most flexible program (particularly the latest versions) but not designed to act in a “natural” way. If you’ve used it for painting versus something like Painter you know what I mean. Who the fuck pays for it though? Google “Photoshop tumblr masterpost” and take your pick.
Paint Tool Sai - Far more affordable and definitely worth paying for if you can. The brushes are very decent (especially when they’ve been tweaked a little), the gui is simple and intuitive, and I dare you to find a program with which making smooth lineart is easier.
Corel Painter - My program of choice for most things. More tools than you could ever possibly use and pretty cheap on a student license, providing that you can prove you’re a student! It’s got a few bugs but if you want realism or a more natural feel than PS or SAI this is the program for you.

Photoshop Download Masterpost



They don’t need a serial number, all you have to do is download and it’ll work normally. And I can sure you that these links are safe. :)

I haven’t tried any of these links; remember to download at your own discretion.
