Year of pictures, week 1

Posted by – January 11, 2011

Not a great week for pictures.

First, I don’t want to give the impression that I’m all about trying to sketch real-world objects, so here’s a piece of creativity from deep within my soul. I call it “Gretel is affected by a mushroom and vomits out his soul”:

Here’s a picture of my watercolour set. Even in this trivial example the perspective doesn’t work right.

I tried to sketch my pipe several times, just to get a hang of how thick the front vs. back of the bowl side should be, how close to the front the hole should be, how distorted the hole and the outline of the bowl should be, etc. You can’t really see how off they are at this size, but it’s not that easy to do. It would be nice to know calculated rules of thumb for things like this.

I don’t know what this is. It started out as a representation of a index packing algorithm.

Another piece of crap:

A sucked-dry lemon peel:

A railroad spike:
