A friend has been running a dnd one-shot that has turned out to be a few-shot so far, so I made icons for the group! I've been having fun with this crew.

Inkscape 1.2 highlight 💡 of the week:

Did you know that we added a new feature - a Live Path Effect called Tiling?

It allows you to create cool patterns quickly!

It can be tweaked interactively and it’s non-nondestructive.

Have you noticed the user interface improvements in the "Trace Bitmap" dialog in #Inkscape 1.2?


🌱 My Neighbor Mastodon 2

Thank you, thank you, *thank you* for being more than 20K to follow my art here. It's fantastic.

#Mastoart #ArtWithOpensource #krita #HumanArt
A digital painting illustration being a parody of an iconic scene of the movie "My Neighbor Totoro"; but instead of Totoro it's a big Mastodon, and the two girls are replaced by Pepper and Carrot, the OC of my webcomic. The scene is a large view angle under rain at night on a bus stop, the sign has '20K' written on it and a sticker of a red heart symbol on the corner. Pepper has Carrot sleeping on her back, she is under an umbrella, waiting for the bus. She looks on her side, amused, and discover a large cartoony mastodon also waiting for the bus, and covered only with a large leaf on his head. He looks at her as if he was suprised she noticed him and even blushes a bit.

I'll do a 50min commented Krita live painting for the first edition of Creative Freedom Summit, a new virtual conference for creatives using open source tools! ☺️🎨

It will be next Thursday, January 19 at 8:30 am (EST) and it's free. More info:

Question: What should I speedpaint that day? **Wrong answers only** 😺

It looks like 2022 is over 👀

So, that can only mean one thing:

It's time for the January Inkscape Challenge!

Get ready to flex your imagination, as this month's challenge is to create an abstract design.

We're looking forward to seeing your artwork!
