Once again I return to Inkscape for my 2D art fix. This software’s Bezier curve editing features are truly amazing – not necessarily the most powerful but simply very easy to get comfortable with.
This began as an experiment in monochrome vector art. I started with no plan or image in mind. I drew the shape of the main character’s head, went on the rest of her, and then just filled in a scene to fit. At first I was just trying to create a convincing, well-lit environment, but then I added in the two grey-robed figures and the crystal sphere on the floor to add a little intrigue into the mix.
What is this image about? I could say it is about the repressed emotional entanglements of our individually alienated egos in the modern post-consumerist culture… or I could tell you the truth: damned if I know!
