Screen Capture Shortcut
Time for Old Man Logan, week 2!
Just kidding. Moving right along, I wanted to share a screen capture tip that my girlfriend taught me: by pressing Command, Shift, and 4, simultaneously, your cursor will become a marquee with which you can frame a portion of your screen to capture. The image will be saved to your desktop as "picture #.png." I use this whenever I need to save photo reference from a web site that won't let me download the image directly (I'm talking to you, Flickr), or when I need to explain a computer process to someone. I used to use the program Grab for this procedure, but this makes things even easier.
Also, just to give you something to look at, I've posted a digital color study from Mythos: Captain America, page 15.
