Downloaded Inkscape today and had a small play around with it, without reading any tutorials beforehand.

I ended up making this with it, and thought I'd share it with you all. I had to edit it in Adobe Photoshop CS4 to save just the box, but it seemed to work fine.

The only thing I forgot to do was set the line back to black instead of green though, but it doesn't seem to harm the image any.

Thanks for the GIMP link, NickDMax.. It has become my new source of entertainment.

And yay! I finally did one of the challenges..

It's a little jacked up, but hell.. I haven't done any digital artwork stuff in years.

This is my ASCII art entry:
<mod edit>sorry</mod edit>

Just kidding, this is my real entry. It is a ASCII art logo I made for a short-lived project of mine:
 _  _  ____  _  _  ____  ____  ____  ____
| \/ ||_  _|| \| ||_  _|| __ |/ ___|| __ \   
|_||_||____||_|\_||____||_|\_\\____||____/

@programble -- the first version is probably not very PG and well... I don't think that outside of the informal lounge that is a very good joke. Kind of inappropriate. Though I do admit that I am skirting the edge of ridiculousness there.. (i mean its ascii art...)

That's inappropriate. You cannot deny the visual similarities to a vagina.

Was having fun with photoshop CS4, went through a tutorial at planetphotoshop.com and made this. Fire Steed! Pretty simple.

For making this, I used a picture I picked from google images.

Oh come on, it was a work of art. Art is supposed to be controversial :P

:) I suppose that it was pretty abstract too... it could be taken as some kind of mathematical formula.

I admit that I was probably taking things too far.

That looks more like a vagina than NickDMax's art.

Art is supposed to be cool, especially 3D. Check this car model.Cool lighting and rendering.

That would be the point of the silly. When you say vagina and art, the works of Georgia O'Keeffe immediately come to mind. The woman never saw a flower that didn't make her think of human anatomy. Or perhaps it's all just pretty pictures...

Art is supposed to be provocative. It can lift you up or stomp you down. Make you happy, inspired, disturbed, revolted; as long as it makes you feel. It's like cutting for intellectuals. :P

Here's one of my favorite paintings. I you only see the "ugly" in the Ugly Dutchess, you don't see the art.
