I often enjoy putting my coding abilities on hold for projects that need graphics. Here's some original artwork for a top secret project I'm working on with a friend. Made with Inkscape, my weapon of choice.

plutino

indiglo

How did I survive before the Gaussian blur filter? It can really light up an image, especially when it's really supposed to shine or glow.

All those details really give Inkscape a rendering workout, especially on my old computer. Exploring all the dark corners of Inkscape also reveals some annoying bugs I'm sure the wonderful developers are hard at work on. Can't wait for the next release...
