Just a tiny test using black colored paper I recently got, with gel pens and pencils, with also gold. Just practicing with pencils a bit.
it is good to try new things.
this one... was a journey. what you don't see is how messy the back of the original is and how many layers of pencil and marker paint there is on this.
but it is done, for better or worse.
I am in a bit of an art version of pantry challenge.
These crayola pencils are 30 years old and over last 3 months I fell in love with them a bit. beautiful colors, very easy to color gradient and they are amazing for detailed work. Will probably combine them with markers and possibly watercolor? #wip in more ways than one.
what old art supplies do you have lying around and how could you put them to use?
Wherever, whoever you are, have a great monday, that sun shines (figuratively at least even if weather isn't cooperating) and that things take a positive turn.
This is actually a panorama from 2020 that is in todo list, but didn't have the energy to deal with it today so just edited 1 image version of it.
Yes #editBacklog is back after a 3 year break.

This is more of a technical limitations exercise. It is shot with a sony a6000 and my trusty 135mm Samyang.
Supersampling is used with 21 frames, to reduce noise and increase the resolution. (this is a cropped detail)
The limiting factor here is light pollution more than anything.

#hugin is one of the most underrated #artWithOpenSource software out there. Yes it is a panorama software but it is also useful aligning images (wide angle astrophotography shots, multiple image shots to median out etc) tiling images together for getting a higher resolution print (I am beginning to do this with documenting/preparing larger works), HDR... seriously aligning and/or tiling images is such a critical part of process that is overlooked
and if you haven't been following #lgm2021 has been ongoing with many interesting talks and demos. https://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2021/en/index.html
also video for my talk from last year's #ozgurkon can be found at https://video.ozgurkon.org/videos/watch/16ce9f24-d4ac-465e-b839-a281cb8a1504
day 13: "fire" and day 14: "cider/apples" (suggested by @aldersprig )
very behind and I fear I will continue to be behind until next wednesday. All the same....
oh and it is the first time in 15 years that I have used watercolors... yeah well it still went better than I was expecting, sort of... xD You might see them again on later images.
day 12: "moebius" (suggested by @cidney)
Interesting fact about the möbius strıp ıs that it actually only has a single surface. That wasn't the issue through. The execution issues mostly stemmed from the fact that flat paper as thin as it is, is NOT a 2-D surface. :D
Forgot to say last time but still accepting prompts on mastodon. :)
