And Now for Something Entirely Different...


Anyway, to make you all feel better, here's a nice picture by J.K. Potter, the guru of the masters of light. This one is called By Bizarre Hands and was a cover illustration for a book of the same name by Joe Lansdale.

It's very... striking, to say the least.

I love J.K. Potter's work too. And you have Kaoru from Rurouni Kenshin as your userpic - do you like her? I somehow though like Megumi better.

By the way, how to make an userpic from a fave icon?

Actually it's Misau, the head of the Oni gang. Megumi's made out to be kind of a wimp in the series, always trying to flirt with Kenshin and clashing with Kaoru.

The technique is a bit difficult. first save the pic so it comes in under 50KB and 200x200 pixels (saving as GIF is a good idea). then create a post in your blog and use the picture button in the toolbar to add the image. Save it as a draft (so it will only be visible to you), and open the edit html tab over the message. there you'll see, instead of the photo, a URL in text. copy it, then go to your profile and paste it in where it says 'Photo URL'. then save your profile, and voila! you have a user pic. if you publish the post, the image will also be visible on your blog, if not, not, so you can keep them for reference.

Ooh mistake - possibly the hair is similar. I think I like Megumi because of the talk she and Kaoru had, when Meg let go of Kenshin, saying Kenshin loved her - her calm dignity was WOW, and her interactions with Sanosuke are hilarious, also she is a doctor, and I wanted to be a surgeon some time ago.

Thank you for your help.

Also, RBC mam, Rimi is Priyankadi's pet name, and I was commenting on her post on Spike (she is very fond of him)from the Buffy series. I am sorry if I offended you.
