Console Room by Fhaolan
Console Room
Another case of not being able to concentrate on my work. The TARDIS console room I built in Blender awhile back for another project, sketched up the Doctor and Derpy in Inkscape fairly quickly, and merged the two images as layers in GIMP so I could erase certain sections of the ponies to 'insert' them into the console room and paint some extra shadows in.

I should have been working today, but I just couldn't concentrate on anything. So I did this instead. Crescent moon modified from a photograph, and starfield created, in GIMP, both assets from previous projects. The rest done in Inkscape 'freehand' with no original sketch, which is odd for me. I think I have the proportions right this time, but it's a weird pose for MLP.

EDIT: Had it pointed out that I had the eyelashes wrong, so I fixed that. :)

Just a couple of quick digital drawings that I needed for a bigger project. No attempts at shading or anything similar as those details will be lost in the final thingie.
Neep II by Fhaolan
Neep II
Last year, I carved a turnip for Halloween, to recreate the experience my Father had in England.… However, when I showed it to him he went "That's not a turnip." This set me back a bit, as it was very definitely a turnip. What I discovered is that in Northern England and Scotland, when they say 'turnip', they might mean a 'Swedish turnip' or what in America/Canada is called a rutabaga.

So, this time I did a rutabaga. Not much different from a turnip, really. It's a bit bigger, seems to have more surface texture, and is a touch softer I found. It's still awfully small and hard relative to pumpkins. I remember seeing rutabagas about 6" round in Ontario, but the biggest one we could find in the grocery store over here was about 4" round. This time I broke down and used a solid spoon to help hollow it out. I wanted to use a melon spoon, but that turned out to be too flimsy and just bent. If I do this again, I'm going to have to get a smaller knife as even a paring knife had too wide a blade to be particularly useful at this scale.

And just for reference; sometimes jicama is called 'turnip' too, in Malaysia. Maybe next year.
Fleur de Lis by Fhaolan

Just a quick headshot of Fleur de Lis. I normally don't do all-digital drawings like this one, as I have difficulty drawing with the mouse (and my attempts at using a tablet were disastrous). I tried something a bit different though, doing a rough pencil sketch to get the proportions right, used Inkscape beziers to trace the lines, and then off to GIMP to do the coloring. I wasted a lot of time redoing things as I should have used different color lines for the beziers to keep them straight, though. I probably could have used GIMP paths instead of Inkscape, but I find Inkscape's UI a bit easier to deal with for that kind of thing for some reason. 

That, and the expression came out... odd. I was going for mischievous flirt, and that's what the people I checked it with say I hit, but for some reason I'm seeing a hint of something tired and sad in those eyes. Not sure why.
