You're too stiff man, you gotta loosen up your stance and your movements.

I'm a lot more fluid than I look. But I do look stiff. Stance though should be solid. during those matches it's 80 degree weather we are all wearing heavy costuming and they are running around cooking in their own juices lol.

Both of these comments have put horrible, HORRIBLE, images in to my mind

But Jonny is right, you need to be more, fluid...

Man that word leaves a bad taste in my mouth now...

Also Bob, you look much better with the beard, or at least in my opinion.

So been playing around with Sketch & paint here. I know the anatomy and pose is kinda rubbish. But I like how it came out. I may color it in GIMP, or keep playing Sketch and Paint and see if I can make something awesome. Not the best program but boy, is it fun.

First attempt at glass etching. I did this with an etching tool. Not the most precise thing in the world, but I did manage to pit an image onto glass. So there is that.

That's really cool! Looks like you have massive control over that tool. Is the process as fun as it looks? Loving the result.

I've pretty much already explained my methods in my threads and in the Art101 tutorials. but I use armour etch glass etching cream. It works on most glass. A big difference though is that it is only a surface etch. Its no where near as deep as an etching tool or sand blasting.

As for art. I found those Avery Shipping labels work awesomely. I can feed it through the printer to get my digital art on the paper. then stick it to the glass. From there I take my exacto (be very, VERY careful) and cutout the pieces I want etched. Slap on some cream, wash it all off 5 minutes later and Bam! I have some custom etched glass.

Also you can draw your designs if you lack printer or what ever.

I found this method to be pretty accurate too since you can print just about any image to the paper to cut out. The resources and overhead isn't too much and you can sell the glass at an easy profit.
Another down side though is if the glass condensates its kind of hard to see the etching. But still pretty effective.

if you have trouble getting the label off. a little oil will save the day. I use some cheap 3in1 oil, works wonders.

Now that I have access to a vinyl plotter at work though, making masks is easier than ever.

You know I think I can compile another quick tutorial. Give me a bit and I'll work it up.

oh yeah, and I do like the mug. I have a couple of the same ones. Don't know what I'm going to etch on them yet though...

Anyway. I'd be willing to trade you my green Cthulhu bottle for it :3

Scotch not included... had to get the green bottle somehow.

Thanks, Fun? I suppose. I mean, I find my projects relaxing and enjoyable. The tool is tough to use, but I have a steady hand I guess. I taped the card on the inside of the glass then Trying my best to compensate for the distortion I etched the image on the outside. The idea seemed to work. I need more polish before I'm happy with the results though.

excellent...

And yes. it does look like you have really good control. over your too.
What you using, dremel?
Take a photo and show me your set up.

Also I got that next etching done. I'll be showing my process soon.

Set up? What the hell is that? Uh I got a table. The tool is an etcher, not a dremel. It's way less powerful than the dremel and battery powered.

ok... show me a picture of this "Table" you speak of. I am intrigued, you know, cause you can't a good artist without the best tools, right?!

Where the magic happens. I promise this is not a picture of a meth lab. Though "magic" happens there too, I suppose.

It... actually does look kind of like a meth lab. Haha.
My space... doesn't look much better most of the time. My boss keeps telling me that he is going to teach me to be a neat freak and to be organized...

But I already know where everything is at...

Second etching. MTG Guild of Selensnia seal. Did a color etching. Once I had the image etched I took some spray paint onto a rag and rubbed it on the etching. Then I used turpentine to clean the edges. The pic was a little difficult to take. I blacked out the background so the focus was on the bottle. I also adjusted the levels a bit to try and make the colors clearer. I will try and take better pics especially so I don't have to edit them so heavily.

looking at it at first with out reading the description I though it might have been the White Tree of Gondor. Then I was like, nah, its kind of green. no way Bob would make that kind of mistake.

and i snickered to my self with the absurd though of the White Tree being green, ha...

It doesn't look bad, but the photo really isn't doing justice. I have found taking photos of glass etchings can sometimes be quite difficult.

Well, try and get some fresh batteries in that camera and try taking your next photo in sunlight. I found that helps quite a bit sometimes.
