Hey! This blog is about me and what I do. Enjoy and diamond if you like!

My PMC routine -
3 - 4 posts a week -
2 - 3 on weekend -
0 - 1 on weekdays -
You can expect my posts mainly on the weekend due to me having time to edit, build etc. You may expect 1-2 posts a week sometimes, it depends on how much work i have to do.

Servers -
I play on several servers, but mainly the World of Keralis creative server, which i am a trusted on.
I also play on....
Minecraft furniture server - Builder
Creative node - Builder
Team Variede - Builder
The Modern Crafters Dimension - Admin

My objectives -
My main objective on PMC is to provide quality, well presented content, mainly in the form of modern and futuristic design.

What do I use -
I use a mac mini, which is good as it is not just for minecraft, it is also for art (another thing i do). I use Photoshop Extended Edition CS6 for editing, which is great for photo editing. I use a font called optificio for my pictures, etc.

My advice -
This was written in my first month of PMC. however, as I was quite new it can help you in some way (I hope).
Despite me being on PMC for only a month, I do know the tricks to get to the front page in no time ;) Time is very important when it comes to this. I usually post a big project on a friday or saturday evening, when there are about 5-6k people online (GMT). You do need a few more things to have a popular project. Editing the front picture is incredibly important. This is what will get you views in the first 30 mins of its release. Renders with chunky and screenshots with shaders are all good ways of getting attention. I prefer to use photoshop. I take the minecraft sky out, and replace it with a real sky. Then i add a lens flare, followed by a title. Making it brighter is good also, as it is more eye catching. If you manage to make your way onto the first Whats hot list, you are fine and the views should increase, however, if you want to go for 500+ views, i would reccomend going into the PMC chat and advertising your project.

wow that's a really good idea to post on fridays or saturdays because there are more people on.I'll use that advice.I would also use photoshop to edit my front page but for 2 reasons I don't

1.Don't have photoshop

2.Don't know how to use it

You could use gimp? It is free and simple to use. there is a video by lynchyinc on youtube telling you how to edit photos in GIMP.

I'm just gonna say there is such thing as too much lens flare, and its kinda gimmicky too. Other than that keep building.

I agree, i did add a little too much in some of my previous projects. Lens flare is what will be the main focus of the image, so it has to be well placed and balanced in contrast with the image.

really good advice, i understand everything of making the title image other than the lens flair (i use gimp so idk where to get that :l) and which shader u use.

I dont use a shader, just a good texture pack (soartex fanver custom). (though adding more contrast and playing around with saturation and darkness can make it look like its taken with shaders). Lens flare should be located in Filters.

How can you take the Minecraft sky out and replace it? I can't seem to find a way to do that.

1. Get optifine
2. Turn Sky, clouds, sun and rain off.
3. take screenshot.
4. go to photoshop and duplicate the background layer.
5. go to select, then colour range.
6. with your eye dropper, select any part of the sky.
7. click 'select' or 'okay' or whatever, and the sky will be selected.
8. delete sky.
Also, try and make it seem realistic, so half generated sea in the background isnt good.
