    Default Stop & Post February 2012

    Welcome to Stop & Post February 2012.

    Last month we saw posts for all tastes. From hot dogs (with and without pickles), palettes, cars, stereograms, cards and banners... They were few but good! Who knows what we will see this month... There´s tones of creativity running on these forums. So show us your work too.
    It doesn´t matter if it is finished or not as long as it has been done with Xara software.

    C'mon, don´t be shy. There´s space for everyone here

    Happy posting!

    I've been cutting out clouds from my photos to use in stereograms such as the one attached. I have added them to a folder in the Fill Gallery so I can drag and drop them into a sky.

    I am thinking making a tutorial for the new Xara Xone on creating a stereogram like this one.

    that would be very welcome Gary..

    currently the only thing I am doing with xara is assembling art asset into single drawings - which xara is rather good at, its VHQ setting and pasteboard are most helpful - but no actual posting here as the artwork is, on this occasion, made elsewhere..

    I like the Sterogram Gary, and a tutorial on that would be nice. I've been cropping all manner of things for adverts from cars to lattes and cookies. Here are some cartoon like blue berries I did a few days ago.

    Last weekend I attended a course on drawing mantra garlands and finished this drawing. These images are used in Buddhist meditation.

    It is the mantra of White Tara. The way this mantra garland has to be drawn, is defined in a sadhana. The Tibetan/Sanskrit symbols should be white, so it was a bit of a challenge to get it done properly.

    Because it has a lot of detail, I also included a detail picture.

ID:	87076I am trying to draw a wine glass at the moment but haven’t had much time on the computer because three days before Christmas the doctor told me I had cancer. Still more drawing time though before I go into my wooden box. I’ll post the wine glass when I finish it...

    Man what a nice Christmas present from your doctor Tabian. What kind of cancer, can it be successfully treated?

    Never give up. You will never fail, you'll just find a whole lot of ways that don't work.
