Playing in Photoshop

The good thing about photoshop is that it doesn’t take much energy to do it. I can sit in my comfy recliner, covered in blankets and all I need to do is move my hand and fingers a little. The only effort required of me is that I get out of bed and into my chair. If I’m too sick to do that, well, I’m really sick. Heh.

Anyway, this is a screenshot I took yesterday from my Fallout 4 game.  For those of y’all who’ve never played this game and aren’t familiar with it, the “end of the world” took place right before Halloween (October 28th, if I remember correctly, which I probably don’t, but I’m too tired to look it up). So anyway, there’s all kinds of Halloween decorations still hanging around after 200 years! >_<  *ahem* Sorry, that’s a pet peeve of mine. As I mentioned before, either the developers of the game think that we, the players, have no concept of how much time 200 years encompasses, or they themselves have not grasped that concept.  Paper takes about 2 weeks to completely decompose in a trash pile — a month at most, and things like books would take about 5 years. But these stupid paper decorations have been hanging there (on cloth strings) for over 200 hundred years. “A bit over 210 actually. Give or take a little for the Earth’s rotation and some minor dings to the ole’ chronometer” says the Sole Survivor’s robot butler Codsworth.

So anyway, sorry for the rant… Here’s the screenshot I took, it’s a little dark, but that’s how it looks in game — it’s night time I think. I forget.

And here’s what it looks like after I played with it in Photoshop. I made it monochrome because it just looked more “spooky” that way.

If I run across any more, I’ll post them. This is the month of Halloween after all. 🙂

    You ought (given energy levels and how well you may feel at any given moment) check in with Rory of A Guy Called Bloke.. He’s doing all sorts of halloween-y challenges this month and I BET your photoshop efforts will fit in nicely… just a thought. Yeah, games have some weird glitches in them – BUT the ‘Share Your World” ‘rule’ may be in effect – it’s fantasy and doesn’t operate on the same rules as the ‘real’ world (ours).
