I am not being hyperbolic in the least when I say that upon plugging the thing in, my only reaction was to be overcome with an incredible wave of depression.

What the fuck is wrong with me.

Guys, I didn't especially want to say it in the open like that, but you need to know Mongrel lost his real parents when he was just a little kid; a crook stabbed them to death with a pencil behind an art gallery. You should be more considerate of his trauma.

Mongrel I want you to literally make a big scribble on that tab - not figuratively, I mean an actual scribble - and upload it here.

We're going to have to bust out a few rounds of Let's Draw, aren't we?

I don't work in MSPaint much anymore. I'm changing the name of this thread to "Pen and Cucumber Carving".

These guys were carved in an idle moment in my Garde Manger class. We were supposed to do a cucumber cup to decorate the plate and put some tarragon mayonnaise in. Most people just fluted the tops and maybe scored the sides. I didn't have anything else to do, so I tried my hand at more elaborate carving. I think they turned out pretty well, for my first (and third, in the case of the frog) tries.

I can't help thinking it's Batman possessed by the Phoenix force.

It never occurred to me to carve Bat-Cucumber... but it has now.

If you suspect someone does not have your best interests in mind, show them the icy, undead, still-beating heart of your nemesis. That'll teach 'em.

If you cannot draw people very well, the solution is to start drawing anthro animals instead keep drawing people until you are less terrible.

Scanning at 300 dpi does wonders for image quality in general but often makes text unreadable. So there's type instead of handwritten text in this one. B-) Deal with it.

Still trying to nail a few things down, like scaling images around. Which means I just have to draw a fuckload of images and scan them in to work with and see what happens. Result: A remake of the dramatic climax of my Nuzlocke game.







Things I learned: how to get the scanner to make backgrounds white without having to pull the pictures into Photoshop, how to make the lineart sharp enough to see without futzing with curves, AND MORE!

Things yet to do: Get words at a reasonable size that scaling the image around doesn't make them illegibly tiny.

Things I've forgotten: How to draw Ninjask, how to draw Milotic.

"A duck carrying green onions" is a Japanese idiom for an unforeseen but happy circumstance. So when I got the job to do the duck canapes for my Garde Manger final...





I carved a duck. And since the canapes were garnished with sliced scallion, it all tied together nicely.





Looks like my vegetable carving...



...just got Farfetch'd.

I can't quite tell... is that duck carved from a lemon with a really bulbous end?

He Knows Your One Weakness









So why haven't I updated in a while? Is it because I have no idea where the scanners are on this campus yet? Does this doom me to shitty cameraphone pictures of my work for a while? Yes!
