sketch_l5 (CC_1477)


Made with Chibi Paint, Linux MyPaint, and GIMP.
A redo of one of my Computers Club Drawing Society drawings, with fake drips and textured background added.
When I worked in acrylic I also used to add fake drips after a drawing was finished, to give the impression of painterly gusto.
I would put down a spot of color, load the brush with water, push down, and let gravity do the rest.
See, e.g. 24 drawings like the above.

AKA "assembling gratuitous object for 3D printing (with pipe)"

Drawn and modified in a handful of paint programs: Chibi Paint, Microsoft Paint, Linux MyPaint, and GIMP.
Am attempting to wean myself off of Windows, after the last round of outrages from the criminal class in Redmond. Linux Mint is a much better operating system in many respects than Windows 7 through 10 but the creative software is going to take some getting used to. This is not to apologize for the above drawing, it's supposed to be this way.

hat tips noisia (who made the web app) and D_MAGIK
also, Santiago Calatrava, whose sucky ornamental winged thing will soon be gracing the revamped World Trade Center's "transit hub."
It looks kind of like the design above but with "wings" that are awkwardly asymmetrical and jammed too close to an adjacent building.

imaginary painting (stretched)


I have recurring dreams of paintings, usually ones I made and am either discovering in a cache somewhere that I completely forgot, or am preparing to hang in a show (and fretting that I don't have enough of them to fill the walls).
The image above was my attempt to sketch one of these from my memory of a dream. It was narrower in width when I drew it with the Computers Club Drawing Society software. The version above is stretched into a square format. The dreamed-about painting was much rougher in texture and made of real paint on canvas.
