Summer is a distracting time but I have managed to make some things.
Not the least of which is the video games. Especially since I finally got my computer situation upgraded and can finally play Oxygen Not Included and Fallout 4. Not to mention the car needing a load of repairs and smogging and blah blah. June was a pretty distracting month.
Another project after upgrading was getting all my software set-up again. The other day I finally got around to getting everything in place to do more databending. I celebrated by bending a bunch of data. Most of them I’m not going to show you, partly because I’m not super happy with them and partly because they use copyrighted material. So it goes.
Anyway! The first one is an old picture I found of my young friend Q and his dad way back when Q was a baby.
I started using a lot of Photoshop into my databent pictures a while ago but I kicked it up a notch with this one. Much more complex layering and manipulation than I’ve done before.
I was so happy with it I tried using some of the same techniques I’d worked out on a self portrait. I’m fairly happy with how it turned out.
Other than the computer ugrades and care repairs and such things I’ve been managing to get out of the house walk around and stuff.
On one of those excursions I went to Picchetti Winery and came across this super chill peacock hanging out in the shade next to the trail. Tons of people walking by but he couldn’t be bothered.
Also - I’ve been running a Star Wars Edge of Empire game for Q and his family. They recently rescued an Ithorian Jedi from a Star Destroyer.
His name is Larquin and I drew a picture of him.
