I love how you present your things together with a nice environment in the photo.

But it's true that often I read the forums on the mobile phone and then it flies by like in facebook - I shall take a minute more and post my opinion here!

Interesting thing about posts. Research shows that the desire to check if reply posts or likes are made is driven by the release of seratonin in the brain. Studies are finding when one finds that someone has replied or likes one of their posts, the seratonin release to the brain is analogous to the same release of seratonin with cocaine, sex and alchohol consumption. Thus, in itself the drive to check if anyone is responding is sometimes being driven by a psuedo addiction if you will.
That's not to say i dont check and see if anyone has checked my topics or commented on my posts such as the truckload of cards i made. I'm guilty as the next guy looking for my seratonin buzz.

Anyway, pardon my foray into neuroscience, it is part of my field of profession. Maybe others will find it interesting and comment on it, giving me that seratonin fix as well :D

Yeah totally! Its a super interesting topic!! That serotonin kick is what instagram and facebook are build on. I recently got rid of it. Unloggin from the slavery of the digital matrix :lol :lol: : I am doing hypnotherapy as part of my profession, neuroscience is superfascinating!

and of course....I like the fix too :lol: :lol:

Thanks man, I love to take pictures and build small environments around it! I realized lately that I probably watched too many old Ray Harryhausen movies as a kid! You know the ones where they used stop motion technique with modells.

Or later Jacksons Lord of the Rings. I ve watched a making of LotR the other day and I understood why I loved the first three because they all used models and created this super magical world by actually filming real miniature environments instead of just using CGI, which you unconsciously pick up as fake no matter how "good" it is. The hobbit is the worst example of that, looked like a videogame. :skeleton: :zombie: :mummy:

I would probably add some yellow, maybe some blue if you want it really hot.

Slight nebula out of a white spraycan or airbrush from the top, really just very short quarter of a second pfft straight from the top. Then paint orange or yellow what has become white in the process.

Wood fire is more on the orange side

@Rusty: Thanks man! yeah I added a bit!

@Anderas: wow, thats a cool technique tip. I gotta try this out. A bit afraid of using it here and fraggling it up :D Gonna experiment with this first!
