Wolverine - Inkscaped by Seothen
Wolverine - Inkscaped
Credits to Marcus Ranum mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/ for the stock photo I referenced.

Marvel's Wolverine, done in Inkscape, took a couple of hours.

I'll be doing a presentation September 20th for Software Freedom Day at my workplace (I have a pretty awesome workplace).  I imagine I'll be using this image in the presentation, along with creating a some graphics that I'll import into Construct 2 to make a mini-game.

2400x3300, though as it's a vector it can be re-outputted as a PNG to really any size.

Dungeons and Dragons Inkscape Tributes - Slaadi by Seothen
Dungeons and Dragons Inkscape Tributes - Slaadi
Part of a series of classic 1st Edition Dungeons and Dragons illustrations recreated in Inkscape.  These images had a huge impact on me as a little kid.  NO USE OF TRACE BITMAP WAS EMPLOYED - everything is created with the Pen and Ellipse tools (and in some cases the Scatter Brush).  These images, being Vector graphics, can be saved and printed to any size without loss of quality; I'm thinking of eventually producing a collage of all of them at some absurd resolution.

A Red Slaadi, as it appears in the Fiend Folio; original pose and design by Russ Nicholson.  I might be wrong, but I think the first time these guys appeared in a CRPG was in the first Dark Sun game - that's an environment that needs to be revisited (the whole forests and elves and mines and dwarves setup is getting super old in Dungeons and Dragons).

A Githyanki, as he appears in the Fiend Folio; can't find a signature for this one, but the artist was possibly Russ Nicholson.

This illustration was the biggest pain in the ass - at first.  It took me longer than the previous four illustrations combined; near the end though, I realized this probably came out the best of the lot.

Dungeons and Dragons Inkscape Tributes - Succubus by Seothen
Dungeons and Dragons Inkscape Tributes - Succubus
Admittedly not very creative on my part, but I wanted to recreate a series of classic 1st Edition Dungeons and Dragons illustrations using Inkscape.  These images had a huge impact on me as a little kid.  NO USE OF TRACE BITMAP WAS EMPLOYED - everything is created with the Pen and Ellipse tools (and in some cases the Scatter Brush).  These images, being Vector graphics, can be saved and printed to any size without loss of quality; I'm thinking of eventually producing a collage of all of them at some absurd resolution.

A Succubus, as she appears in the Monster Manual, original illustration by David C. Sutherland; ah, the days when boobs weren't considered worse to see than violence...

Personal Quote: Nostalgia rocks, though maybe not as much as it used to.
Interests
This was interesting.

An artist in Alberta was up against big oil and won (or so far has been winning) - he copyrighted the top six inches of his soil by putting original works of art all over it; if an oil company disturbs it, then they're up against copyright law which would involve paying out big bucks, not the puny $200 they would have to pay for 'merely' ruining farmland.

I wonder if this is a technique that could be applied in more areas - eminent domain coming to mind foremost, but also protecting habitats from clear cutting.  Maybe you could dress up members of an endangered species as characters from your original play and refer to their existence as 'performance art'?  I suppose you'd first need permits to create the art on land (or creatures) you don't own, which... probably won't happen.  And how would you get the animals to keep their costumes on?

[Bill Murray: "Well have you tried staples?"]

Just thinking quietly out loud on computer here, but with laws increasingly favouring profits over people, maybe individuals on the right side of things need to start creatively thinking like the bad guys.
