A 3D Pat Neshek To Help Me Remember

You know those people that have a mind like a bear trap? Those people that never forget a face, a number or an event?

Well, that is most definitely not me.

I can’t even blame it on middle age; I’ve always been like this. But the thing is, the information is up in my mental attic, I just can’t always find it when I want to.

So with that in mind I wanted to take notes on how I go about creating my faux 3D cards, so that in the future if I decide I want to revisit them, I’m not sitting here trying to remember what kind of blur I used for the background (side-to-side motion blur).

And the easiest way to make sure I cover all the bases is to go through the process of creating one…. and so…

I also wanted to post a custom to remind everybody that I create custom cards… It’s been a while since I shared one because I’ve been working on a couple of projects, not least of which is my 2015 TSR set, which is already behind schedule.

Update shortly after posting:
*sigh* I didn’t mean to post that just yet, I was still working on the text, but I absentmindedly clicked on “Publish” rather than “Save Draft”.

Oh, well. What’s done is done. I’ll just have to move on and have a better post for tomorrow to make up for it.  2015 TSR is coming soon, I promise.

2012 TSR Pat Neshek – Establishing A New Cliché (and yes, I do take requests!)

If Pat Neshek had more cards, he might be photo-clichéd for being pictured with that unique delivery of his… at least that’s what Topher at Crackin’ Wax suggested in a recent comment.  I’m only too happy to contribute to a new cliché, so here we go:

Right now, Neshek’s fighting for a spot with the Orioles.  He’s having a good spring but as a non-roster invitee for a team with plenty of spots but also plenty of candidates to fill those spots, it’s something of an uphill battle for him.  I’m pulling for him to make the team, but even if he gets sent to AAA Norfolk, I expect that he’ll make it up to Baltimore before very long.
