Hmm, I’ll maybe jump on this one. Perfect topic for me to ‘sketch on paper’ to. :thumbsup:


Suit?, check.
Fresh breath?, check.
Fish? check. What could go wrong?

Sketched in OpenCavas w/wacom tablet; Imported into XaraX for tracing and inking; Finally pulled into GIMP for resizing/postprocess.

Total time: 2.5 hours.

I haven’t used XaraX for some time, so I thought this would be an interesting project to brush the dust off.

“Gettting used to visualizing vector fills is quite a shift in thinking”, I mumbled to myself after the 17th time of retracing the outlines…


Hiya all,

Just love what you guys come up with :thumbsup:



First date!

something like 50000000 B.C. I think it is :slight_smile:

It’s great to see the sketch group fare so well. Lots of talent around, lot’s of contributions, really great. I think I almost lost my double-mega-fever with extra headaches, so I hope I’ll be back soon.
