Hello, Ringtail

Art, gimp, Inkscape, Vector

I’ve switched my desktop over to Xubuntu 12.04 and I’m loving it.  It’s lightweight, fast, and very easy to configure.  (Even though I do very little to configure my machine anyway.)

I was originally going to make a wallpaper (I still may), but decided a quick promotional piece for the next Xubuntu would be more fun.  BTW, the next Xubuntu will be codenamed Roaring Ringtail, and the mascot for XFCE is a mouse.

Made in Inkscape, except for the background which was done in the Gimp.

Crate for New Animation

animation, Art, gimp, Inkscape

This is a WIP of a crate using Inkscape and Gimp.  This is going to be used in a new 2d animation I’m doing with Synfig. Although Synfig has vector drawing tools, they are vastly inferior to Inkscape.  I used Gimp for painting and texturing.

I’ll probably finish this off by adding some scratches and dirt, but I don’t want to overdue the paint effects as I want to keep a vector art feel.
