     I just made a tektek avatar for myself but BG won't let me use it as my profile picture for some reason, so I'm sharing it here.



     Just wanted to see if this looks anything like the picture I drew of Fritz. I'm not trying to pass it off as "art".

You need to scale it down. The maximum size for profile pics is 100x100.


     How do I do that?

You use picture editing software (personally I use GIMP). It's very easy. In GIMP's case, I open the picture, open the "image" menu, then click "scale image". A window opens up, I put in the size I want to use, then click "scale". Save the picture and you're finished.

You might also want to crop off the empty space at the top — it should be as square as possible so it will distort less when you scale it.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

No HDR at all. I don't really do HDR. All my shots are from singled images.

Most of my work tends to be more in the line of plans, sections and elevations; technical drawing.  Occasionally though I will do more 'artistic' renderings, one of which I completed this morning, so I present it here.  I'm trying to formulate a neo-Victorian architectural style that leans heavily on Soanian Classicism and Ruskinian Gothic, and so far I think I've had some success.  But I'll let you be the judge of that....

Every once in a while I find a great digitally designed Automobile on the internet.  I don't know who created this.

But I just have to share this one.

This is a theoretical 1932 Le Mans competitor, powered by twin John Deere model D tractor engines converted to run on vegetable oil.

Here's my new scribble.


Very nice.  Actually, it reminds me of my first crush.... My School Librarian, Mrs Summers.  Of course, it never worked out, what with me being 8 and too shy to hit on her ...i mean umm ask her out.

Not really steampunk, I know, but I'm absurdly proud of them. I haven't done any real drawing in a long time. Feels good to find I haven't forgotten how. Text was done with GIMP, that's the experimental part.

What ho! Karen. I like your artwork, but…

In the first picture I see 'R is for Raven' or 'A is for Athena'.
Admittedly the raven could be clockwork, but it could also be electro-mechanical, bio-mechanical, or even nuclear powered.

The airship in the last picture is not a Zeppelin.
It appears to be a non-rigid (or pressure-type) airship, non of which were ever produced by Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin.

Sorry to be picky, but shouldn't an ABC be educational as well as entertaining?

This is more whimsical/silly/cartoony/kiddy than my normal painting style - but I like doing something here or there more befitting a kid's room.

They'll be in sepia. I actually do all the art in full color and then convert it - it helps blend the photographic and drawn elements better.
