    Exclamation Gary Bouton's non-Xara Art II

    I thought my original gallery/thread was getting too large for anyone to bother flipping all them pages, so if no one minds, I'll start another thread:

    (It's what you do if you can't get out of the house!)

    My Best,

    There was a video tutorial on color, where I offered an abstract scene I drew in Xara for artists to add color to the blank walls.

    I needed to do a 3D model of the scene.

    I don't know why.

    I had to.

    That must be one of those new tiny houses.

    Sometimes you just want to see something from a different angle.

    That was my apartment in Manhattan! :) One room, view of the back of a warehouse 6" away.

    I have a very twisted "Tinkertoy"-style construction set, Zolo. Here's a rendered model of one of the thousands of real ugly possibilities...

    Default Re: Neo Dartboard

    The first one reminds me of Mr. Potato Head toy from the fifties.
    The second one is right on target (sorry). Interesting the shapes in that one. Looks kind of like a lathe chuck.

    Default Re: Neo Dartboard

    Thanks, Graham—To get the weird dart board, I used dsb Flux's Radial Mosiac Photoshop filter. Then I carefully traced all the pieces, exported from Xara to AI file format, extruded the pieces to different depths, and then used an equally weird but dramatic camera angle.

    Default Expression vector "painting"

    This is all vector work in Expression. It looks like a painting because you can use a bitmap as a vector stroke, like Xara 10's new strokes.

    Default Your Secret is Safe :)

    I still like this, even though I did it ten years ago as an avatar for our website, which we've more or less abandoned. I use a much better rendering engine these days, and only use Poser figures occasionally, but the lighting seemed to draw out some visual intrigue.

    Or I'm totally kidding myself.

    The first one you wouldn't think was vector.
    The clowns face does have an interesting light reflection on it. The one side of the face really pulls you in.
