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.

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…

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.

Filed under: Graphics — Meanwhile @ 17:28

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.
