Scribus + Inkscape = Cohesive

Sculptris: Women's Face

Having this be the first time I tried out Sculptris. I decided to model a woman's face. This is my WIP.

Python 3.2 Bug: input() Module

After countless hours of programming of trial and error. I have found the solution to the input() bug.
Option 1: Revert back to python 2.7 until this is fixed.
Option 2:  It seems that \r is trailing the input so the fix is...


#python version 3.2

string = input("-> Your input here: ")

#The fix
string.strip("/r")


And that's is pretty much it.

Summer Project: Achievement Icons

I am creating a set of achievement Icons for A professor at my University who asked me if I can help out with the artwork for his math achievement system.I will be uploading the vector icons once I am finished.

Here is a sample icon I have created.

Inkscape 101: Nice exporting

In an earlier post I commented on how ugly exporting PNG images were in Inkscape well its been fixed.  Under the file menu there is an option call export bitmap if you click on this and export it as a PNG image it should output a nice result.

I made an icon for candr

All program needs some sort of icon so I made one for candr. Tada!

Programming: candr

So having assigned a ton of projects through out the semester in my computer science courses I find that when your done with everything you feel like you should be doing more projects. Well being bored out of my mind and waiting for the finals I felt that I needed to make use of my time so I wrote a script called candr short for "Compile and Run". It is a shell script used for compiling, structuring, and running your java programs via Linux terminal and has additional features that are commented out in the source. Feel free to look at the source and experiment with it. The script is documented so if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Inkscape 101: Reusing shapes

There are a lot of times when we run into an artist block and the best way I found to get out of this is by reusing the same shape and see what you can come up with. Here are some for example.

Inkscape 101: Saving to png

If you haven't notice already, the previews I typically put on looks horrible. Thats because Inkscape can not render an image with filters and blurs. However if you import it using the GIMP or an equivalent that should solve the problem.

3D or Vector?

Estimated time: 3 HoursIf you guessed Vector your right! Here is the svg file for all you guys who wants to examine and use this soda can. Right click then hit save link as: soda_can.svg
