I know I commented on this on MSN, but I'll comment here too. I really like this one. I think it's one of your best vectors. And I agree with Katie about the colour scheme.

OMG, that's so fucking cool. That really is. Can you submit it to Mercury Ice? That's one of the coolest graphics things I've seen here on MI in a while. I think you should submit it.

If he doesn't, I'll grab it anyway, and put it up when I next do a batch. :D (Nah, I always ask for permission. But you wouldn't object, would you, Sam?)

We're in the process of transferring artwork from the old Joomla site to the new vB one so it would actually be very quick and easy to include this one with everything else.

I love this picture. The first time I saw it I didn't notice the animation because it's so subtle, but then I took a closer look and realised how clever and beautiful it is.

Right!
Over the past few months I have been working on a very big project in college.
I wrote the project brief myself, it can be downloaded here if you're interested.
The basic overview is this;
I, as you know, am a huge fan of vector art and create a lot of it.
Vectors are fantastic because you can make them any size without losing quality as you resize them.
With this in mind; bugs are small! If I vector bugs and make them big, that's just...kinda dumb really, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Anyways it turned out very well!
I started off with a practice vector;
Image
I took plenty of photos of bugs, thanks to one of the college life models. He brought in several boxes of his perserved insects and arachnids for me to photograph.
I then moved on to moths pretty swiftly, as moths are amazing.
I started with this moth:
Image
I didn't take the photo I used, so I couldn't use this vector in my final designs.
These are the three designs I decided on in the end:
ImageImageImage
For several reasons I didn't use the third vector, as is, in my display. Firstly, it was far too expensive to get three A2 canvases printed.
Secondly it didn't FIT.
Instead I decided to create three posters to display beneath my other two canvases, allowing me to incorporate my third moth.
These are as follows;
ImageImageImage

I still didn't finish here, though. I developed these even further and ended up with this:
Image
I am rather pleased with these.

I cut out several copies of some of the moths from this;
Image
It was tedious and I almost stabbed myself with scissors several times due to despair.
FINALLY though I finished and I pinned them (in perserved-moth style) to the exhibition board!

Here's how it looks:
Image

THE END.

Nicely done! I really enjoy those moths! What program do you use, again?

I know I commented on this in your dA blog, but I'll say it here too. I've been really impressed right from the start with your moths, and I love the Natural History Museum posters. They look really professional, imo, and I particularly like your triptych.

I also love it! (Though it seems a little sad that it seems to be pointing to zero. I hope that's just because no-one's inserted any hug tokens, and not because whoever last used it wasn't loved. :p)

Oh, and *hugs Katie*. Any better? :D

I love this robot. :D

I know you said it's out of proportion, but it's your robot; you can make it any shape you like. :) I really like the detail on it, and it's beautifully shaded. Did this start out as a pencil drawing or did you do it entirely on a tablet?

I really like this banner. I think it's rather cute, the design allows plenty of space for forum headings and the like, and the colour scheme fits really well with the skin of the forum you've designed it for.
(Though including the link in your post is a little bit naughty. That counts as advertising. A screen shot of the page would have been better. But since you seem to be actively involved with Cyndaquil's blog, why not add a link to it under your sig? That's perfectly acceptable. :) )
