Bye bye blog.

Filed under: Graphics, Stuff — Meanwhile @ 10:08

Due to shifting realities, I’m ending this blog. It just means that this is the last post; the blog itself will stay.
It will now also be findable for search engines, and so I’ve switched off comments to prevent spam.

So long,

Meanwhile

Update February 17, 2012:
On this Flickr page you can find the latest from my icon creating/polishing activities.

The BeSting icon is now up to snuff, having a better Haiku icon perspective.

(Original on the left, new version on the right)

Next: the BabyBe icons that have been a pain in the ass and still need work (or another concept entirely)…

No more icons are planned, but the existing icons may get a new round of polish before Haiku R1 is out. At least they’ll get scrutinized…

Another one line HBBI news update

Filed under: Graphics — Meanwhile @ 01:19

Hardware problems, laziness and RL-activity has kept HBBI v5.6 from being published, but 15 icons from earlier versions have been polished and the three new ones are 70% done…

HBBI version 5.3

Sorry for the large amount of icons that had to be polished…it’s just that the shadows were often wrong.
That’s because it’s only by now that I have a fairly accurate idea of where the (damned) imaginary light source is hanging.

Next HBBI version is to have four new icons and eight existing ones polished, while the version after that should have three new ones; probably also the final ones because they’ll end my ‘todo’ list.
