philfromghcq-rgd-nye19

I spent the day drawing people on RGD and two strips of the comic PhilfromGCHQ. Here are the results:

zepril

Portrait of Zepril from RGD. Basic. I like her neckless. The eyes are a little strange with alot more marks than other areas of the page. Background is basic with just a square fence behind her, no landscape.

086-Gerome

The original E86, and myE86 remix of PhilFromGCHQ. I liked the scifi aspects of the piece. The moons in the sky, along with the alien characters Aside from the bust, this is missing nudes.

robersons-robot

I watched Season Two of Lost in Space, so this is a drawing I did during it. The center robot character has a circle face along with stars similar to the robot in the show. A full figure has been drawn several times. Along with wavely water and buildings with squares. In the sky - clouds.

robot-squares

A more basic robot in the center. couple of clouds in the sky, with squiggles for water in forground.

caitie-p-sweets

Drawing of caitie-p-sweets from rgd. I like the lean she is doing, along with the pattern on her shirt. Unlike alot of the portraits I’ve been doing I have managed to fit the majority of her body into the piece. In the background a shower curtain and walls.

hongle492

Drawing of Hongle492 from rgd. I’m a little disappointed how her teeth came out - they are certainly one of the hardest things to draw. I was inspired by philfromgchq in the crossstriching for covering dark areas - shown here in her top. In the background - rectangles for bricks.

tikachu_

Drawing of Tikachu_ from rgd. I like the downward expression. Though the eyes were tough. Again cross sketching for her top. Plants and rectangles (bricks)

emo-username

Drawing of emo-username. No hair but was able to do small dots instead. Nice eye movement to the right well looking left. Cross sketching for top again. Landscape in the background, clouds in the sky, and squiggles for water in foreground. Few mountains in the distance.

tiffany

A drawnig of Tiffany.

085-Feuerzauber

e85 of philfrom gchq.

xmas19

Merry Xmas. Another year is almost over. But here’s another post of artwork. I started a new job last week, which keeps me busy during the day. But in the evening I got home and felt like drawing. Which is great, as when I wasn’t working it was hard to motivate myself to draw most days. Alot of this artwork was created well watching the new season of Rick and Morty (which I have drawn characters from in the past) and the new Netflix show - The Witcher. I have The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch and own The Witcher 2 on PC Steam, but never really played the 2nd one.

oct19-portraits-landscapes

Having a go with a new function for adding art to markdown. The previous function I used to do this would take all the artwork for today (galleries, year, month, day) and it would create the markdown from this data. Embedding the images into the markdown file. I then had to open the markdown file up and add in comments about each piece of artwork. I don’t want to do this. I want to do this with a python function. So now this function asks for the piece of artwork, and a comment, and then appends the data into the markdown. I think a front-end would really help which renders the image and the name, allowing user to type comment in textbox.

Anyway, here is some artwork.

joker-startwithnothing

The Raspberry Pi 3 with official 7 inch tft is working. After my last laptop died I decided to put it back together and it worked. I don’t plan on moving it - the ribbon is quite dodgy. But at least I can hold up on getting a new laptop.
