Some of you may have noticed that I haven't done much art for quite some time. Well, of course the last season is over for 2 months already, but even before that I haven't worked on many vectors. What I was actually doing was training my drawing skills, especially my sketching. That took me actually quite long, but eventually I managed to get a few decent sketches done. With the help of Bra1nEater I even managed to get a somewhat 3D-looking sketch done, which still took me about 3 days.

As I wasn't happy with only doing sketches over and over again, I then decided to start learning some shading techniques. That by itself wasn't too hard, as I was already used simple shading from my vectors, and I only had to adopt it to Krita. Bra1nEater was really helpful, helping me and giving me advices along the road, sharing a lot of his knowledge and techniques with me (seriously, thanks for that!).

Right now I'm still improving the shading of the skin, but soon I want to move on with the mane and the skin color. But for now I don't want you to wait much longer anymore to get something to see (I've been working on this for 15 days, with lots of breaks still, and I'll surely still take some time to finish this). So enjoy this little preview, I hope you like it. Till then!

I don't think that anyone really cares, but well, why not. Maybe someone has already read it on my DeviantID, but I'm going to write it down here as well: I recently decided to finally take commissions!

By now I can create somewhat decent sketches myself, but if you prefer a specific style, you may also deliver a sketch yourself (it can be very rough, I'm fine with that). I can do simple line art, flat color as well as fully shaded drawings. For prices, please send me a note. Examples of recent work:

Additionally, I offer custom wood engravings and cuttings like the following one:

And now, go back to where you came from! ;)

When it comes to repetitive tasks, I tend to be a lazy person. And since I'm a developer, I try to make these tasks as easy as possible. My very first timelapses were automatically created by Justin.tv, but I had no control over the music or the resulting length, nor could I add anything. Additionally, it always took a while until the timelapses were generated. Later I created all timelapses myself, but that involved a lot of manual work, as I had to calculate the length of the resulting timelapse to match the audio length, set all the encoder settings and so on. Additionally as of my youngest screencasts, I also had to manually add the splash screen to it.

Yesterday I finally decided that it's time to automate the entire tool chain. I ended up with a single bash script, which you can download here: gist.github.com/DASPRiD/100061…

I assume that one could possibly port it to Windows as BAT file, or add some kind of GUI to it with Zenity, but I leave that as exercise to the reader. Usage of the script itself is pretty simple, you'd call it like this:

./timelapse.sh splash.png recording.mp4 music.mp3 timelapse.mp4

The splash screen will by default last for 5 seconds, and the recording will automatically compressed to exactly match the length of the background music. The encoder settings are optimized for 1080p/1440p YouTube uploads, so if you use other resolutions, you may want to alter the bitrate.

So you all know about the new deviantThought by now I guess. What you probably don't know is that it took deviantART a lot of heavy analysis of their users' styles to know exactly what they would draw. A huge list of images was generated by one of the world's most intelligent AI system to properly predict the outcome of your thoughts:

So, Justin.tv recently included a feature to directly transfer timelapses over to YouTube, which I directly did. In that process I discovered that I haven't posted quite a few of the, so I took the time and updated all deviations. If you want to check out the timelapses, head over to my YouTube channel:
