This took way too long to make, but it was also an experiment—I wanted to play with a watercolor-like painting capability that the Krita program provides with its large variety of brush types and styles. I also used the stylus that let me draw right on my laptop's screen, which has its own pluses and minuses. I generally used the original picture for the basic colors, but then I played around with it. I tried to be more true and careful to the nine people than to all of the shades in the background, where I kind of went more Impresionistic or lazy on. The shading and shadowing is better in some places and worse in others. My shirt was supposed to be dark blue, but that didn't work well and I was still learning how the different watercolor brushes worked.

I decided not to crop it as I like how the color just ends, and similarly, I didn't feel like trying to create a metalic look for the the ring in the bottom foreground that obscures the bottom right, as it was what the camera was sitting on.

Anyway, it's something. Here are the previous black and white and the full resolution color versions of the picture.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
