#inktober Day 3!
Messed around with some of my colored pens and some nicer paper courtesy of @janelastname!
The last pic is a logic error that looked rad. It would destroy any pen and paper I tried to print it on, so it is presented only in screenshot form.
(reposting because I forgot I can set things to be federated)
#inktober day 5 on the pen plotter!
Everybody gets to do some sine wave shapes on the plotter, right? They're so satisfying!
Day 7 of #inktober on the plotter!
Messing with line thickness. I keep filling out the page when I should really leave more white space.
It's hard making the transition from my demo display on the screen to how it'll look on an actual page!
Day 8 of #inktober on the plotter!
I got about 3 hours into a different plot before realizing that I hated it so I simplified it and got this.
Noise patterns look so good on the plotter. It feels like cheating!
Day 10 of #inkotober on the plotter!
Knot pattern with distortion and frayed edges.
There are some minor errors I'd love to fix, but this print took 4.5 hours so I don't think it's going to happen today.
Day 11 of #inkotber on the plotter!
Messing around with some circle fills. I couldn't make up my mind so I tried a few prints.
This one was fun because it spits out really different compositions every time I run it.
Day 12 of #inktober on the plotter!
We got come concentric circles and they're all out of phase! Just a quick one today because I have to get ready to teach.
Day 13 of #inktober on the plotter!
Playing with noise fields again (they're so fun).
Busted out the metallic pens and the big 18"x12" paper that just about takes up the whole canvas bed.
Day 14 of #inkotober on the plotter!
Variation on yesterday's noise field. Gold ink on large black paper. Feels ~fancy~
Day 15 of #inkotober on the plotter!
Last night I wrote up some tools for my gcode library to help with occlusion. Today I had some fun with it by making a Thumper monster.
@andy have you considered making a comic or a zine down the line? I really like the texturing from the plotter
@andy this sort of texturing but abstract and geometric with a plotter would be such a rad aesthetic
@mohini Oh wow it really would.
I'm still getting my footing with drawing anything that isn't totally abstract, but backgrounds and things could be really neat.
