Curly Girl

Oh my! girls that have curly and wavy hair... you are my favorite kind of women. Don't take me wrong, because I think all women are pretty, just thinking about your long hair, stylized shapes and everything else. I'm glad I'm a man because I can appreciate these things better. "Have a very good reason for everything you do."- Sir Laurence Olivier When I think why I like girls that have wavy or curly hair, I remember my very first job in the Christmas season of 2004.  I was working in a store that it's within a...

The Animated Forest

Hello, I hope that you - whom are reading this - are ok. May God take care of the men and women of good will. Well let me tell you that I added a cool splash banner for this my blog and although some time ago, I was thinking in doing something different (and more complicated), but I think this banner is ok. Like some people know, I had some vacation and although it was only one week, It was ok for some sleep and rest. I needed vacation very badly. One of the coolest things that I did in this vacation, was reading the Anne... [Lire la suite]

Cochesaurus Crazy Tricks

I would like to introduce formally the "Cochesaurus crazy tricks", these are tricks that I've discovered using some of my favorite graphic programs, animation programs and programming languages. The graphic programs include: Gimp, Inkscape and Adobe Fireworks. The animation programs include by the moment only Adobe Flash. Finally the programming language that I like the most is PHP. If you've read some of my previous posts, maybe you've noticed that I've already added some tricks, tutorials and workarounds, so why a... [Lire la suite]

Tony Hawk vs. Homer Simpson - Watercolor

It's October 2004 and my brother Leonardo is about to have his birthday. I found myself thinking what could I give him for his birthday, because I didn't have money (I wasn't working at that time, I was still in the university at full time) to buy any gifts. I could tell you a lot about my brother Leo and our adventures when we were children, but in a brief Leo and I, were like partners in crime, like Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, like Duck Dodgers and Porky Pig space cadet, like more than brothers...friends. So I have to put a... [Lire la suite]

North Pole Background

This background was made for an animation that I was trying to do for the last year's Christmas, and I said "trying" because I didn't finish the animation, I hope this year I could finish this idea and the work that involves. When I was drawing this background, I was thinking in "ice cubes" and because of that the icebergs that I draw, are kind of polygonal. But let's see how you can translate this idea into a digital picture. Before start, I apologize because I don't have any images that show the process of... [Lire la suite]

Space Background

Hello!let me show you some background that I did some time ago. This space background was intended for some Flash animation that I was doing at that time and although I could create the whole animation in Flash, I don't think Flash was capable to create a more lively space drawing, so instantly I knew that with Gimp I could create something nicer that with Flash. (FIGURE 1) FIGURE 1  Somewhere in the infinite space. About how I did this drawing, well there is not much to say, because mostly involves playing around and have... [Lire la suite]

Dandelion Girl

Well it's time for another tutorial that involves Inkscape working cooperatively with Gimp. Let's see what results. The history of this tutorial it's a bit sad, because comes from a project that probably never will see the light (I'm sure if you follow this Blog, this is not the first time you've read that), a Web site that was intended to sell pictures of women... not exactly naked women, jaja, don't take a wrong impression of my company and me, but just bikini women. And like a Web site that I was viewing the other day that says... [Lire la suite]

mouse doing his homework (I'm back!)

This painting reminds me of the time when I used to give drawings and paintings to girls just to impress them and maybe get a date :) fortunately those times have passed away and now I know a bit more of how to conquer girls and not get too serious (yes, give some flowers or drawings to a girl that you just met some days ago it's not a good idea) too soon. About the painting, it's done with watercolors and consist of a mouse doing his homework (here in El Salvador, we call this type of homework "planas" and basically... [Lire la suite]

It's since a while

Well maybe you have checked my blog recently and noticed that I don't post anything since a while, well the main reason is that in this month - Juin (I'm trying to learn French, jeje) - I have to deliver some project in my university, and I've been very busy lately, but soon I'll be back and with a lot of free time to try new things and share it with you. The past 5 years have been full of lot of things regarding the university (I studied computer science), but in my free time I discovered my real passion and enthusiasm for things... [Lire la suite]

Cellphones sharing stuff

Hello! like I promise in the previous post I'll continue with the first of two post related to music in which I'll use the music symbols that I created before. Like some people know, I work in a company that sells things related to cellphones, things like images, ringtones and other stuff, so I came with the idea of two cellphones sharing stuff. I hope you enjoy this Inkscape tutorial and let's get started. First we need to draw the "cellphone boy", so using the Rectangle tool draw a rectangle with rounded corners.... [Lire la suite]
