    Re: Pantone colors and paint strokes

    I think the lighting, which is all LED, corrupted the true color of the green, Boy. It's more like billiard table felt green.

    But I DID experiment several years ago with green screen material, and...

    Re: Pantone colors and paint strokes

    Oh, I agree. It was my way of giving our the paint strokes, if truth be known. Someone didn't understand what an EPS file is, a long time ago, so what I did was use P'shop to write it out as a...

    Pantone colors and paint strokes

    I have very little idea why PANTONE skipped right past the year 2021, and went straight to Spring/Summer 2022.

    Whatever; Here are most of the colors in a XAR file.

    And as a little bonus, I...

    I've expanded!

    I asked The Admin whether I could start a blog on tg.

    She said no.

    So instead, when I have content to share, I'll post it on a new Xara Art Gallery of mine, along with the piece.

    I am among many, many Americans, completely ignorant of any country that is East of our Atlantic shore. :)
    I also do not speak Russian.

    From Russia with Love :)

    I did not see it yesterday, and as a Mod I can see what's deleted, except when a member self-deletes a post.

    Re: FREE LOVE!

    Igor flattered me this morning with a PM that contained Robert Indiana's sculpture, except he spelled out GARY !

    FREE LOVE!

    Thanks, gray!

    Shortly before Robert Indiana died, a shell corporation tried unsuccessfully to claim ownership of his LOVE sculpture. After a little research, I've concluded that the sculpture and...

    Extruded chicken

    All this is, is a set of extrusions.

    Okay, okay, the background is a painted-over photo and the eyes are drawn.

    Thank you!

    I like to share what I create, and for as long as tg is around, it's a good and positive place.

    I'm flattered/embarrassed you feel my work is inspirational.

    Re: A thorny hamburger

    Yes, I based the polygons on the freeware program Dmesh, which, if you've ever tried it, requires a lot of patience and just as much tweaking before exporting and svg.

    A thorny hamburger

    This is the first chance I've had all this year to sit d9ow, undisturbed, and just draw.

    I used two "helper" programs, but this basically a Xara Designer piece.

    Re: Bouton's stuff, Volume 2

    Ooops, sorry!

    I did it for version 8.

    Here's some of the more recent art for the splash screens. I tried to be consistent with the typefaces and layout across versions.

    Could the design be all vector?

    Yes, of course it could be. I was just playing with the Goxel program and come up with something I liked and rather than tracing it off, I used it.
