Honored to be a guest at @geekfaeries this year!
I'll do signing sessions, a talk about my FLOSS tools in the 'Pôle Hacking' room, and a Krita live painting tribute to Terry Pratchett with @Pouhiou in the 'Mind Palace' room. I can't wait!

Quick doodle to test a refurbished Ms Surface Pro 3 (cheap, 2014) running GNU/Linux (Fedora Gnome). Good hardware support out of the box for stylus and touch on this model.

- I could saw almost nothing while drawing, even with backlight to max and no sunglasses.
- It's not precise at all.
- It's super hot today and so was the black tablet.

But a 100% Free/Libre and open-source digital drawing pad with Mypaint on a bench? Very fun!

Pepper&Carrot episode 37 production report: an important milestone today. The alpha version (still in French) was posted to proofreaders. Here is a photo of my setup over last month for drawing and inking all pages:

Votes for the poll are closed now. What a... hum hum... "lovely?" color. 😆

Thank you for all the participations! Now I'll try to paint a fantasy landscape with this one as my dominant color. I'll toot it here soon.

( If other artists around want to give this challenge a try , we can tag our toots with the hex address: to collect and discover them )

Narcissus & Echo

Here is my modern take on the well known myth from the Metamorphoses of Ovid. An old artwork from 2006.

This morning, I decided to upgrade the quality and share the full resolution. I remixed a bit the artwork and switched the license to Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 Int.

That's a long process to free my art from the past, I hope you'll like it even if the style shift is huge compare to what I do now. We all have metamorphosis, right?


New Pepper&Carrot derivation: a short scene animated coming with a fully detailed and making-of. A project done by Purism's Creative Director @francois .

You can read the full making-of here: puri.sm/posts/animating-pepper

I really liked the result and all the production tips on the article (the compositing!). A very good resource if you are interested into animation with Free/Libre and Open Source tools.


Fractal Mermaid ~ suggested nudity and eye contact (digital painting) 

Artwork made in 2010 with Gimp-painter and Mypaint on Ubuntu 9.04. Reposted here for the pleasure to add my contribution to the hashtag.

:mastodon: Mastodon tip: you can customize a column to list multiple hashtags (and block-list some of them too). It's a good way to discover all the posts gravitating around the topics you like (eg. for art, is a popular one). That's really a feature I love here and wanted to share it to newcomers.

Hey, if you are new here, and need a (temporary?) avatar, I updated my page with all my generators: cats, birds, fenestars and abstracts, have fun!

Because your TL needs more content, here is "Noutti", my inspiration for Carrot.

Stylisation research for "Pepper the traveler in incognito mode".
Why a stylisation research now?

(note: at the origin, the content of this blog post was a thread of 9 posts on the blubirb-site: twitter.com/davidrevoy/status/ , but I'm not sure threads are easy to read or write on Mastodon? Advices are welcome!)

In the interest of keeping Pepper&Carrot free, I've decided to take on subtle product placement.
