QUIET

SocMo makes his latte money by doing a QUIET mime routine...
I thought I would play around with the Photoshop halftone filter on this one. I still don't know how to use the thing. I applied it at different settings and at different resolutions... trying to get something that I liked. After an hour or so... this was the best I could do. Oh... and I was very QUIET while I did this. yeah... right!

Oh, clever! Socmo the Mime. Heh. The dots are...interesting. Oh, and I've been using a brown Pilot Precise Rolling Ball, extra fine pen. Can't find a Micron that I like the line depth. What are you using?

I dont like the dots, sorry! but I like the illo tough...I like it clean.

Thanks for the comments, guys... and gals....

The dots aren't doing exactly what I want them to do... but it was something different. I hope I can figure out the secret to it.

Paula... I have a mug full of various pens... I try them all but don't really have a favorite yet. I seem to pick up the PITT artist pen "S" a lot.

No, no...leave it! This creates the effect that a Mime creates in the imaginary world. AWESOME piece! (And I oughta know, I'm a former professional Mime/artist!!)

I just saw the Beethoven joke. I laughed out loud. Funny stuff, as usual.

Oh I love the half tone screen - it's a photoshop plug-in? I missed this one last week. I love the mime theme for silent. Great job.
