Next Tutorial / Draw Mohammad Day / Art

Icon 4 Comments
I'm pretty sure I always spell his name wrong, but there's this whole event going on where you draw Mohammad on May 20th to protest the censorship of religious criticism. I would draw something myself on that day but I'm not good at drawing males that actually look masculine- my characters always turn out as gender-ambiguous as my online self. I don't mind, I kind of like that and I have to draw out some more diverse characters at some point when my projects take off. It's perfectly fine for a few main characters though and that's all I had to do so far. Anyways, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have the time to learn required art techniques by May 20th.

"Well why not just draw a gender-ambiguous person and write Mohammad under it?" you say? I actually don't want to insult the normal practitioners of anything... Actually I still do want to here and there, but for this instance I kind of wanted to do something that was still my style but also had that radiance you get from the typical Jesus pictures people draw. I want the people trying to modify Islam into a more peaceful religion by seriously reforming that fiery book to nod their heads at the picture. I will always reject Islam, but here I kind of want this to be a shout-out that the followers could be proud of and to only insult the actual psychos who would want to kill me for drawing the prophet.

Basically "Come on, don't you want to spread your prophet around? People do this with Jesus, why shouldn't you?"

I guess this entry would be enough for my protest-ish sort of message.

Adamant activism of freedom aside, I'm wondering what I should do for my next tutorial for Linux Game Programming... I'm not sure what I could cover. Should I add upon a topic I've already gone over or should I add something more advanced like drawing text? I also have to dust off my Linux rig and start creating the subject for the next tutorial as well.

Would you be willing to do a tutorial on creating a game with PyGame?

I only do tutorials in straight C using the SDL / OpenGL because it's the most universal way. The point of my tutorials is to teach you the foundations of everything (for example, I did sound from about as low as it gets so that anything could be written).

I have always admired and respected the one and only.

Yeah, I don't fear Allah the imaginary human construct- but I'm pretty sure I would fear the lighting fast "Anchor Punch". Kind of hard to prove a face full of hurt doesn't exist.
