She

I really don’t have an apt title for this one.
I initially intended to do carry out a car design test but it turned to be an atmospheric test.

I’ve always loved photos of foggy cities lit by the night lights, neon lights under rainy Japan.
Something that builds on the atmosphere of Blade Runner and the like giving it an unknown depth to the image/scene.

As usual Done in Krita

Note to self – Please no-more stick figures (x_x)

Smiling in Pain – The Joker

I was doodling around for a long while on MyPaint and suddenly i felt like a big need to draw the joker.

Funny as it is I’ve hardly seen the Joker smile, its always a BIG WIDE GRIN.
All my Google image searches confirmed this, and slowly i tried to create a sketch of this epic character that would reflect his root – pain

The Eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg

If you have read the The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald you should have come across this name – Doctor T.J. Eckleburg.
Yes, it comes as a reference to the iconic blue eyes that over look the The Valley of Ashes.
The author describes the eyes as
“But above the gray land and the spasms of bleak dust which drift endlessly over it, you perceive, after a moment, the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg. The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic β€” their irises are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose.”

The eyes symbolize the loss of Spirituality, Corruption and the commercialization that took over American Lives during the 20th Century. I came across the film “The Great Gatsby” by Baz Luhrmann before i read the book and the way he portrayed the eyes left a certain impact within me.

What I wanted to next was to recreate it πŸ™‚
I fired up my trusted Vector Art drawing software Inkscape and in no time I got something what I wanted

Darth Vader in Digital/Traditional Art

As much as I love Art, I love Star Wars and its never ending universe.
Though I haven’t read the books, I’ve watched all the films, and its blows me away every time.
SimplyΒ  because there nothing like it and the possibilities are just infinite. The massiveness, the philosophy and the fight between the dark and the light – a great combo.
Darth Vader has been one of my favorite characters from the Star Wars saga.
I made a ball point sketch of him before with a ordinary Reynolds ball point pen, but as always I like taking my art further.
And Here came Inkscape and its vector graphics abilities to the rescue.
I love Open Source and this software in particular.
I’ve used it in several Graphic projects of mine and found it quite reliable and very easy to use.

YellowHint Gnome Shell Theme Multiple Colours Update

Its been a long while since I’ve made any update to this theme.
Though the original ‘Yellow‘ YellowHint theme remains same I’ve managed to port to additional colours such as Cyan, Green, Orange, Pink & Red.
I’ve made sure that it still retains the Tron look & feel even with the new colour ports.

Thank You so much for those good download numbers! ^_^
Hope you like these new colours! πŸ™‚
