Nano Nano Here

Apple, the iPod king recently gave it's iPod lineup a face lift. The iPod nano probably saw the biggest share of improvements. It now has a 2" screen, plays video, and comes in some new colors. I don't own an iPod. And I probably never will own one. But, despite this little snag, I just completed a rendering of the new iPod. I wanted something easy, hip, and mostly gray to draw. Hence, the iPod.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. I added myself and DFP as the "now playing" song. I used a photo of the iPod nano for reference, but everything was drawn from scratch in Inkscape. It was fun.

It's Easy Being Green

Hey! I received a picture book for my B-day last year. It had a cool picture of a leaf with sparkling water droplets on it. So I made this picture. Nothing spectacular.

I probably should have made the leaf a less intense lime green. I'll just pretend this leaf is near a nuclear waste dump.

Here's attempt numero two. I like that this one has more color options and darker shadows. But they may be too dark and harsh.
