I guess so. What I meant is that I'm not a very "community-active" person. Posting pics is pretty much all I do. Anyway.. guess this'll have to do until I have more important things to do or say :D

Thanks my friend. And yeah, I I saw your post on IC :)

Alright, here's my latest piece.

She looks so sad... The face is really expressive, Dillerkind.

Thank you! Sad isn't exactly what I had in mind, more like thoughtful or something along those lines. But maybe she is, indeed, sad about something.

Here's a new one. Partial blurring and color correction were done externally, the rest is the usual mix of pen tool and gradients. This is a cropped version, full variants are in my blog and contain nudity so handle with care if that's not your cup of tea.

Did you use some kind of model for the poncho? The folds and shadows look very convincing on it. Great work!

Thanks a lot, you two!

Moini, I didn't use any kind of reference. Sometimes I do but usually I try to go without refs. The poncho was done like 95% of the image, freestyle and trial & error. Even the sketch was of rather limited help, since it only showed the basic pose but no details.

I like the hair and the lighting from left behind the figure. Can you explain how you go about making the hair? I see it's full of 'V's and 'N's, which together form a very harmonic haircut. I'm not so convinced by the proportions of this guy, I find the neck a little bit too exaggerated ;-) - I know he's supposed to be lanky, of course.

Haha, I can't say I'm entirely happy with the neck and shoulders myself. It looked okay in the sketch but in the finished piece something seems off. Not that the neck is pretty long and thin but something about the transition from neck to shoulders. Ah well, better luck next time, I guess.

The hair... there isn't much to explain, I'm afraid, but I'll try anyway. There's the base shape, that lighter reddish color you can see in the few streaks around his forehead. This was duplicated and filled with one of the two shading gradients I used in the entire pic. Now there was already some simple tonal variety instead of just one big block of the same flat color. The before-mentioned reddish streaks are simply 2-3 node cutouts in the gradient path. Either add them by selecting the main shape and then using Shift + pen to append to the existing shape or draw them separately and then combine (Ctrl + K) them later on. Using either these methods, the cutout needs to be in reverse direction. I've made it a habit to draw everything in clockwise direction and holes/cutouts counter-clockwise. Anyway.. The smaller shapes (the V's and N's as you called them) are just random things I placed wherever they felt natural. Darker ones are on a multiplied shading layer (and using the shading gradient that was already used in the duplicated big shape), the few lighter ones on the lighting layer. The actual shapes were drawn like everything else: click click click, straight line-segments that were then bent into shape via the node-tool.

I'm sorry, this probably makes it sound way more complicated than it actually is. It's really just some shapes on top of each other, re-using the same few gradients. I love using linked gradients.. and I love combining paths. Due to lots of separate parts being combined the hair probably consists of no more than maybe 20 paths. If I don't forget, I'll take a screenshot later with all the hair shapes selected so you can see the gradient handles and everything.

Maybe it's the curvature at the right of the neck (bottom part): it's convex, but I think that is usually only the case for very muscular individuals, and this one doesn't look like a body builder ;-)

Thank you for that detailed description of the hair-process! I'll need to try it out to see if I understood it fully, but at the first reading, it sounds like a polished and well-tested workflow. I'd never have guessed that it was done this exact way (probably because I'm not used to using layer modes, or making larger drawings... Your 'simple' is 'huge' for me.).

I have now done what I should have in the first place: let pictures speak. The blog-post has been updated with some additional image material. Check it out, hopefully this will make my awkward explanation a bit more understandable :)

Miniature me... Thought I'd try a stubby character style, basically the complete opposite of how I look in reality :D

Somebody on Facebook asked about a way to make a halftone effect in Inkscape, instead of Gimp, which he had already done. I remembered somebody else posting a video about tiled clones and thought this might be perfect for this purpose. I had never tried out tiled clones since I never had any use for it - until now. Tried it, worked fine. So here's the little example I put together. Link to the svg and the above-mentioned video are all in the blog post.

They always makes me think of Frank Zander... '...immer auf der Lauer - und immer etwas schlauer.' ;-)

Oh dear, Frank Zander... haven't heard that name in a long time. Is he even still alive? Oh and btw, I had no idea you are a German speaker... Tells you how little I know of the world and people around me ;)

Jep, den gibt's offenbar noch: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Zander
Und klar, ich lese Dein Blog auf Deutsch ;-)

Hope you'll tell us more about your 'Inkscape AG' some time :)

After a couple of voxel experiments I'm back with some small vector piece. A practitioner of the ancient non-martial arts ;)
