    So I just was clicking thru a list of free ,, free graphics programs .. and I know and have Gimp installed as it is IMO better then .. photoshop --- but being that list as it was on a older site.. still - there was right after listing GIMP it listed Krita.. ? never heard of this one.. described as---

    Gimp - Aka The GNU Image Manipulation Program. A free, open source graphic tool that will take care of almost all of your graphic needs (barring a few limits like CYMK conversion and the like).
    Krita - A free graphic tool focused on professional workflows.​

    From this Older site- https://www.seventhsanctum.com/ I would randomly use for random idea creations.. and such mmmm OK--- deep in it was this list with Krita.. IDK it is not just - free but open source-- meaning they like free users.. to help- as well have a neat community.-- OK --- I might post somethings from this program -- but it is out there for us to play with as it is made by artists for artists so that works in my book--- to quote them- exactly -- Krita is a professional FREE and open source painting program. It is made by artists that want to see affordable art tools for everyone. I am game. sign me up. it's from europe too. I admit it does not seem as complex as blender but that is ok-

    https://krita.org/en/

    OK I will do something and add that here my first work 000 listen to me I haven't clicked new yet. hehe

    in the begin 1.gif
    first image thingy 2.png
    this second one is closer to what the work looks like in the program.. it was the file format and size problem --- I had to make smaller and cut out some pixel density going on-- but there- :)

    meerkat head on the hulk..it is cool I looked at your blog.. most excellent stuff.. your posts and such.. Gives me ideas and inspires me to do more with my blog. ---- IDK we will see my friend wants me to do a podcast too. I saw you had done one.. I think I could run out of ideas with a podcast.. you know --- he said I should make the podcast about my sound creations with the supernova II synthesizer as I do lots of that .. well we will see what happens -- :) maybe tonite I play the synth some more. --

    is there a comic strip going to happen with the meerkat's and just art in the works with talk and lettering things. === I think I can see the beginnings of this happening. you know.

    Thanks for the kind words! I'm not sure I'm talented enough to put together a comic strip (you should see my hastily drawn stuff on Deviant Art), nor am I especially accomplished at podcasts - I've just thrown a few together here and there and rambled. I'm hoping to keep making forward progress with some sci-fi fiction, and would always welcome input into that (I need to organise it, but look up The Warlord). If you're looking to get back into blogging, the best advice I can give is to write what you like. I've also found that Q & A stuff on other blogs makes for good material.

    I wish I could draw. Right now I wish I could draw the world. You know what I keep picturing in my mind is Tony Stark in Infinity War. He said "Earth is closed today." He said more than that but just those words are on my mind right now. If I could I would draw the world with a huge closed sign across it. Is that strange or what?

    A friend thought that writing a journal about this COVID-19 experience would be a good idea. This is history we are living it. And one day kids will learn about this in school. I do wonder what they will learn? I don't know about the rest of you but my emotions are all over the place. Some days I am fine. Others I just get upset or very unsettled. So many things are happening. I am not prepared for them. Never knew the whole world could close down. But here we are. I can't even see my mom anymore to hug her or anything. I know it is for the best but it is hard. Walk over to the care place where she lives and give her groceries because she can't leave they are all closed down. And I can hand her food in and then wave to her thru a glass door. To help me thru this I wonder if I can make this a kind of exercise in fiction. You know fiction has a comfort to it because it will have an end. So will this. I love fiction and I can't help but remember different events in fiction like the Infinity War and The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson) . And I wonder how can I make a fictional stories out of all of this. Like hmmm. Okay One Day I woke up and the city was empty. All the people seemed to be gone. The sense of loneliness and empties was all around. No child laughed or played. No dogs or cats were out to play. Where have all the church bells gone? Where is the laughter of people walking and talking? When I go for a walk I am all alone. People peek at me from houses like ghosts. If by chance I see another person. They walk across the street from me. No one says hi or smiles. The fear and boredom can be felt all around. The sense of hopeless and every man for himself. In The Infinity War people 1/2 of the people were just gone. I will never forget that moment. It was like a gut punch. I felt sick. It made me think of End Times people would just be gone. Or like in Percy Jackson everyone just went to sleep and the city was empty and quite. This for me is fiction come true. Someone said it is like the Spanish Flu from what the 1900's? I saw a movie with it in it and it was horrible. But it was only a movie and the past. That couldn't happen now? Yet here we are. I hope this is not hard to read or understand. I thought it would be okay to kind of free write on here since it is the creative thread. If you don't like it them me know and I will stop. I just needed to say how I felt.

    It's important to have an outlet for this. Go for it.

    I’ve got some 2mm styrene sheet on the way. I’ve moved on from working with card and recycled materials, making ‘prototypes’. I’m about to begin a proper craft project. :hugegrin:

    Anyone know what filler to use with XPS foam? I need an invisible join on my brickwork.

    This is, in a very weird way, a self-portrait, believe it or not!

    Thought I'd share this here.

    Parodies aren't my thing, I'm actually a serious singer/songwriter and used to make a living at it once upon a time but... it's a little bit I wrote on the weekend because of this pandemic.

    Hoofs! Not an original character, there's a lot more of him from various artists on Deviant Art.

    I think it's part of an April Fool's Day thing, a weird, long game.

    OK, so it may be a joke, but if not... is it really that easy to ban something? If so...

    If this actually works somehow, you're welcome.
