Photoshop Brushes

So I’ve recently been downloading some Photoshop brushes to help with any photo editing I have had the urge to do. I have to say, I have fully under estimated how good brushes can be.

I did a quick edit below of my hunter from Monster Hunter Rise (not the best edit, but sshh at least I’m trying something). And I can’t believe how easy it was to make things look like this. Will be trying to obtain more brushes and create more unique images.

Lack Of Creativity -Disappeared with Age?

I’m currently going through that stage where I want to create so many different things. If you’ve followed anything that I’ve done, you would have noticed that I’ve gone through different softwares to help satisfy my creatives urges.

I used to make Sprites based flash animations on the website called Newgrounds. Loved doing it, but each episode took months planning and actually animating. Thing is, they weren’t the best. But I loved it. I loved the entertainment that it brought people. There are so many ideas that I didn’t even get to start (The Caveman is one I always wish I followed up).

I’ve had several different Youtube channels, trying to get as many subscribers as possible. It’s not about trying to make money, it’s just because I love creating content. I tried making photo wall papers on zedge for people to download (This one was fairly successful, got plenty of downloads!).

I tried my hand at Blender. Trying to make 3D animations of my old Group (Geeking It Up A Notch) as our Minecraft characters. I re-did a video or 2 and loved it. Really enjoyed learning a new skill and seeing the finished product. That died down because I didn’t get the support or response I had hoped from certain people. It kinda killed my motivation and my enjoyment of it.

I’ve now got the urge to start making/editing photos again, but my problem is, I don’t know what to make, what to edit. I do feel that I should just go for a long walk somewhere (especially now I have a dog) and take some photos of the country/rivers etc. I’ve got a good enough camera to hopefully get some good shots, then I can edit them to my hearts content.

I’d like to make some strange images again like I used to do in the myspace days (Yes, I’m that old). I loved doing those, and I loved getting the feedback off people. Hell, I might try to re-create some of them with the newer software and see how it goes.

That’s all off me for now. I’ll continue to look into the photo editing, see if I can maybe create some images or just make things look prettier.

Let me know if you have any ideas or hints & tips. Thanks all!

MH: Rise – Monster Intro Screens

I had to do this. I did it with MHGU so it felt right to carry on the tradition of taking a screenshot for every monster that gets introduced via a cutscene in MH: Rise. I’ve had them stored on my switch for a while now, finally got round to taking them all off and uploading them. Check them out in the gallery below!

Of course feel free to download any. Some of them could be really nice backgrounds. I’m going to attempt to make a youtube montage of all the video clips I’ve got so far as well…not sure how it will turn out, but we will see.

Anyway, happy hunting!

MH: Rise – Tracker

Hi all,

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything again. I’m not very good at this really am I? But I’ve been playing a fair bit of Monster Hunter Rise, streamed a few sessions and still loving it. Can’t wait for the stream next week which will be going into the next update! But in the mean time…

I’m trying to do all sorts of things in Rise. So I made a spreadsheet tracker that helps me. So I thought it might help others. You can access this spreadsheet here:

Save your own copy and fill in as you see fit. Hope you’re all enjoying MH:Rise as much as I am!

Happy Hunting!

It’s Almost Time…

Monster Hunter is now less than a week away and I can’t wait. It’s been a long time since I’ve done any recording or unboxings (It’s been that long everything had been packed away). MH:Rise has re-kindled my excitement and motivation to create videos again.

I’ve re-done the website, I’ve re-branded the youtube channel and I’m in the process of sorting out Twitch for streaming. Friday is going to be a busy day for me. I’m planning on doing 2 unboxing videos (The MH:Rise console & Pro Pad and the Monster Hunter Rise Collectors Edition game). I’m also hoping that I can stream MH:Rise the majority of the day & the weekend. I can’t really state what time as I’m at the mercy of the royal mail sending me the goods.

If you’re interested in seeing the stream this Friday & Weekend, please follow me on Twitch.tv (MySimplePixel) and subscribe to my youtube channel (MySimplePixel) to see the unboxing videos soon as they go live on Friday!

If you are getting the game as well, hit me up and we can complete some hunts together! See you in Kamura!!
