    you know you're using photoshop too much when

    Anyone get that thing where, you take a break from digital to do something trad, make a mistake and think and think 'ctrl+z' ... except it doesn't exist?

    Well for me today, new levels. I was putting a Christmas card into its envelope, and deciding which way it should face for best effect. So I took it out, swapped it around... hmm, nah, better the first way. started to fiddle with it, and then thought oh, just undo. Then stopped, confused for a split sec, because I wasn't sure how to activate the function.

    Anyone else slowly becoming strange?

    I love how our brain can confuse itself like this.

    well at first I read that as 'apply last filter' to pants. I'm thinking... you have urges to render your pants with interesting textures?

    I think everyone used to digital does the ctrl-z thing, but I wanna hear of people trying to use the lasso and move tools to fix a composition.

    Whenever I finish a stage of a painting, I do have the urge to hit command-s and copy it onto a backup disc... And then I briefly panic when I can't save. And then I remember I don't have to.

    you know you're using photoshop too much when…

    you find yourself driving ‘there’ to get an oil change.

    Been there.

    I've even caught myself thinking that I ought to save my game in real life. Played too much Fallout 3, I think.

    All the time.

    Also when using Maya, Photoshop and After Effects simultaneously that makes things interesting...

    When drawing on paper with a pencil I sometimes try to make the "brush bigger" or right click to change brush...
    Ever just woken up and gone "shit, does the world around me exist"?

    I totally played that game too much. One of my all time favs.
    You've just reminded me of something though... when I was about 20 and really shy with girls, I began comparing that to RPG's where you just wander around uninhibited and chat to anyone without any worries... so I thought, if I can convince myself I'm in a game I can go out and it'll just be like an adventure, I'll meet people and stuff. Slightly creepy, I know, but it must have kinda helped because I did end up with friends and not shy with girls and stuff.

    So you're fumbling for the button on the pencil? heh

    These things will only get worse when they bring out a partially mind-controlled interface for Photoshop et al.
    send thought! I'm sending the thought!

    Not so far away as you might think. Research into reading brain signal has taken some more jumps recently.

    Yeah it happens to me a lot too. I draw a lot in my sketchbook these days and I always want to make layers and make small adjustments but I can't. It's even worse when you use some tool you can't erase with, haha. First world problems, eh?

    But it's a good reminder too! Makes you realize that you should plan better so I think it's healthy to keep a balance.
