Speaking of vectors, I really should get back and finish Chihaya. I don't really like doing it, though. :-/
Waiting for all the "do it for her"

Do it for her. Because do it. :P

There's always a lot of injuries and a few deaths nowadays, and if you get a chance, touring stores as it happens (or just after) is quite educational. It's less so now due to the advent of online, and the current economic climate though.

I used to do it for Boxing day sales (in Australia) and seeing where the damaged goods at major department chains were. If you want real carnage, watch the electronics or the women's clothing sections.

Electronics are a given, what with current-gen consoles. This really does bring the worst out of people, but part of me desires to go crowd-surfing on these mobs. It'd be an improvised line cut! :3
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

after altuixde made the averaging and perspective correction for me, i tried to remove the background.
This is what i ended up with:
http://xanis.ch/imas/pop_transparent_background.png

I don't know if this can be used to make a huge "sticker" for a car, but at least it's better than the other images i have.

Yeah, at the very least it needs some color correction or something. You can see it wasn't shot in a studio environment. Still better than that tiny image. :-)

The lighting is still a bit uneven. For example, her left hand (on our right) and her knees are more brightly lit than her right hand and her face. I think that there is software out there that is designed to correct this, but I've only seen this sort of functionality in apps for scanning receipts with a smartphone's camera. I'll keep looking for a solution. But first I gotta go eat lunch. ^^

Yeah, i had the light on the right side to avoid reflections. I couldn't work with just daylight because it was very cloudy (and will stay so for the next few days).

I guess the best solution would still be if i could find a place where i could scan it. I have found several places that can scan things in this size, but i don't know if those scanners also work with cardboard (as in: the material to be scanned can not be bent)

When you have a bad day, what you all usually do, to refresh yourself from it?

Me? Usually making random massacre in Battlefield & Dynasty Warriors games works, but somehow it start failed to work....
Nowdays, listening to some music of favorite genre (particularly, Im@s songs) that are the working solution.....

I like it when I raid and pillage in games like Empire Earth.

Typical bad days I just shrug it off and continue my normal routine and hobbies.

Really bad days like trying to resolve a really huge family conflict, I need a couple of hours to recuperate by pacing around in my room to collect my thoughts.  Then, I go back to my normal routine and hobbies.

Yesterday, I just threw up in the middle of the road on my way home.

Today, I don't feel like eating anything and just drank two bottles of soda.

Partly my fault, partly my screwed up stomach.

Just curious, why is your stomach screwed up?  I know it's none of my business, so you don't have to answer.

I've had intestinal surgeries as a result of Meckel's Diverticulum and, by that, they removed many sections of my intestines. They took away a kidney basin-full of it.

I listen to music as well, that always helps me out. Sometimes I'll go for walks if the weather is ok.
