    Default Re: Low-poly chick

    I can't really claim credit for this design. It's several hundred years old, and a low res version printed in a book at 2 bits per pixel. So I guess I restored it.

    It's from a series called the Busha, a kind of happy mix between Lombardic and Art Nouveau.

    S0o why not share it?

    It's attached in Xara format, and the letter inside can and should be deleted so you can put your own fancy initial there. That's what the "plates" are designed for. I've got about 20 to do yet, should I care to reproduce them.

    Enjoy!

    That initial will do just fine. Xara's good for converting old low res work into a more printable format now. I just completed a similar low res to hi res work a short time ago.

    Default Re: Low-poly chick

    I had to do this by hand, auto-tracing would have yielding nothing, as it was quite small in the book, and only one bit per pixel. I often could tell whether an area was originally a curve or the image was just dithered down unprofessionally!

    Coming up very soon: a digital download of my 6th album of Christmas song arrangements.

    I'll be posting the link in a few days so you can enjoy the music before the Holidays, or have plenty of time to delete the files and try to forget them.

    I'm more or less kidding above!

    Default From chick to rooster

    I think this took 92 bevelsóthe soft-side typeóto complete a reproduction of some art we lost in a flooded basement.

    It seems seasonal, no?

    Thank you, kind folks.

    Take any guesses how many hours it took?

    It was a replacement drawing Barbara had ruined.

    But not as many hours as Bouton's 6th Annual Christmas Music Album!
    (What a cheesy lead-in!)

    Neither Barbara nor I have the disposable income to press scores music CDs this year, so the next best thing was to set up a standalone page on our website to serve as a download target.

    The Details, IOW why you should bother with a 60MB download:

    ēOn and off, I started in September to arrange or find arrangements on the web, to orchestrate, record, and then mix 20 Christmas songs, from 16th Century to jazz treatment of standards. If you've heard the other albums over the years, you'll know I've been sincere and diligent in my attempt to spread good cheer.

    ē By making them mp3 files, you can not only play them on your desktop, but also sych them to your phones, for travel, or stick them on a USB stick if your car has a jack.

    All you do is go to
    theboutons.com/2018xmasmusic,

    click the button that has the smiley, accept the download in the d'box, and when it's arrived, pop the zip file, bring up WinAmp or whatever (AIMP kicks butt), crank it up to 11 (:)) and get salubrious.
