I was going to work on Lal's cousin tonight, but I got inspired by something in the news...

Monty Python IN SPACE comes to mind.

Too white and male - but I'll consider it.

When I do Lal's grampa, I'll only be one shy of completing Portraits7, all photos worked over by me.

I need a woman - preferably non-white, and either old & craggy/wrinkled or good-looking; very, in either case.

Speaking of great faces - what do you think of Sweden's new prime minister, Stefan Löfven? Though to be honest he looks so much cooler when he's not smiling (or trying to smile...).



Very white and male, though. Perhaps you could find a use for our new minister of culture, Alice Bah Kuhnke?



I really like your leaderheads, BU. Keep up the good work!

No, I meant looking at that reworked Canadian astronaut. It reminds me of Monty Python. Must be the mustache.

SO -

It had occurred to me that there was no reason I couldn't reuse the shots I'd previously posted to Downloads as diplomacy landscape fodder - that file is still useful for artists who want to customize, and the current size/cropped & scanlined series is for non/beginning/lazy artists who have nothing in particular in mind for a faction.

So Tuesday night, I began going through my Landscapes folder and slapped together this:


(Click to embiggen.)

It doesn't take forever to size/crop/scanline 23 shots that need no alterations, and these mostly didn't. 

-And then, mid-day Wednesday, my ISP gave up working - I needed something to do, and-







That got me through Thursday w/o dying of boredom. 

Yesterday, I couldn't get on to use Rym's shot of Alice Bah Kuhnke, but I got a folder full of headshots, too, and Portraits7 was only two heads shy, so:



The bald lady may or may not mess up this set being all photos worked into paintings by me; I can't tell if the original was unusually detailed/accomplished CGI or a photo someone had already shooped - I reworked her extensively, at any rate, and none of these are just googled and dropped in.


It's good to be back.

Left the internet, more-or-less.... Might drop in occasionally.

Also, I had a day with nothing else to do.  I've been collecting images I might use in SMACX modding since before you learned how to read.

Alot of nice gems there in the diplo landscapes, BUncle.

Also, I didn't give Tymoshenko a second thought when you first showed your work on her on us, but seeing her pic all sized up she fits right in. ;b;

...Got a lot more work done while I was cast into the outer darkness for a week, but I'll need a while to get uploaded and organized to show - provided the phone doesn't die again...

What I did on my internet vacation


http://alphacentauri2.info/My%20Custom%20Factions/Custom%20Factions3.html

-Well, it's not all I produced, but the main thing.  You'll find Bases24 previewed on the page, and I've begun Bases25.

I'm debating whether to come up with five more logos myself, or throw Portraits1 open to the group to complete...

You Can Get Your Name On My Art Modding Goodies Page.

Seriously, guys - download the attached .pcx, add a logo or two (or five) and your credit, and post.

I have a lot of catching up to do yet from my week in exile, and I'd love to get out of finishing this all by myself.  The theme this far is mostly space and space travel - gambling or drones, popular faction ideas (I covered terraforming and Unity crew/reunification, both perennial favorites), or fill-in-the-blank is fine - once you decide on a theme, the ideas just roll in, and the rest is (fairly) easy.
