Time to share a new and somewhat pun-tastic picture – click through for the big version.
• I drew the lines in Inkscape first so that I had an ‘ink’ version.
• I then did the ‘colouring in’ in Infinite Painter – which I talk about here – on my tablet, meaning I could do this during in my commute into work.
• I worked on several different layers so I didn’t need to worry about overlap, then exported each layer individually and emailed them to myself.
• Back at home I imported them into Inkscape (using the clipping function to tidy up where I’d gone over the lines) and assembled the finished picture.
It sounds like a hassle but it actually worked very well, and being able to do some of the work on the train is very nice.
By the way, one of the unfortunate side-effects of this image is that I find myself mentally substituting ‘gull’ for ‘girl’ when I hear a song titles/lyrics:
Gull from Ipanema
Gulls on my Mind
Good Gull Gone Bad
Feel free to add your own!
