Here's a process shot from one of our earlier prints. You can design a pixelated image, and then tile it out with the LEGO bricks on a base that's mounted type-high and locked into the press bed. It's really nifty and has allowed me to take my pixel hobby in a new direction.

(this pic has floated around the interwebs a bit)

process (I realized the flawed logic with the crutch for a non-walking underwater creature only after I was done already)

I have a question (ok technically two questions) for everyone on here:

Actually when I was feeling down about my drawing I did a page full of circles.

I'm not sure if it helped, but it helped me feel better.  :P

I do not do stroke practice but I do pay a lot of attention about how my hatching overlaps, at which pattern and tempo and curve and so on. A lot of different effects can be achieved, texturally, by being mindful on that level.

Trying to proto-type an image on my computer that will eventually turn into a pastel drawing.  I'm content with the way it is progressing but I am no expert on composition and I tend to "feel" my way through it.

EDIT: Updated the picture.

Some art drivel from me for you
Compositionally, you're certainly "weighted" unevenly to the right, Master of Kittens. While doing this might work in some cases (there are no constants/concrete rules in composition, only governing principles) I don't think it's workin' here. It just feels like the canvas need to pan to the right. I suggest expanding the canvas to a more rectangular ratio - 16:9 is something we're all accustomed to at this point in time (it's the typical "widescreen" screen ratio). Center the object of interest or set it on one of the "thirds", using that thar rule of thirds.

OH NO: I think my virus scanner thing is pickin' up helm's gfx!

BUT, in happier news (and also strangely Helm-relevant) I made baklava. Enough sugar to kill a diabetic should he simply gaze upon it.

it's a false positive.
