13:40: Paper Dolls

Here's a JavaScript/CSS2 example of my painting-process. It's a little like making paper dolls: the white `buttons' indicate layers that are active, and the black onesindicate layers that are inactive. Click on the links to toggle the visibility of the layers. I have a script that produces these from a GIMP XCF file, but I'm probably generally just going to post links to XCF files, when I get my gallery back online.

Almost a decade after starting, I finally have a couple of canvases that are almost completely filled with paint. Here's one:


It's been reworked some in GIMP: The wings are very different than I initially imagined and (started) rendering in the on-canvas oil, the face is different, features like hair, irides, and eyebrows have been added, and the lips and nose have been reworked.

The GIMP XCF file is available if you want to see how I work.

This one has only had a little barrel-distortion reversed:
