Project for Awesome 2016!

As a lot of you know, Project for Awesome this year is on the 9th to 11th December. If you don’t know what the Project for Awesome is, check it out here and here.

Last year, @hanklerfishcomic did a wonderful thing by taking drawing requests in exchange for donations for the charity.

I will also be taking requests this year. I’ll be offering the following between 9th and 11th December:

1) Look into my eyes: (Anything over $0)

A while back I drew the eyes of several mythical beasts on tumblr. For any amount more than zero dollars for the P4A, I will draw the eyes of your favourite YouTubers / You / Your friends. I’ve been told that these work great as Facebook / Twitter / Tumblr header pic :)

2) Keep a straight face: (Anything over $30)

I will draw a pencil portrait of you / your favourite YouTubers for a donation of over $30 :)

3) From face to hand: (Anything over $60)

For a donation of $60 or more, I will draw a portrait of you / your favourite YouTuber and ship it to you :) (Please note that I will only be able to do a limited number of these)

Let’s raise a lot of money this year, Nerdfighters!

How it will work:

1. You message me on tumblr, or email me at contact@riddhisartdesk.com with which of the three you’re interested in, and the amount you’re planning to donate. If you’re requesting your own drawing, I’ll be needing a reference picture. For YouTubers/celebrities I will source them.

2. I will reply back with a confirmation if I am able to take it up (depending on how many requests I receive in total)

3. I will make your perk and post it on my tumblr, and you can copy it and use it anywhere you want. (In case of the third one, I’ll ship you the drawing as well)

4. You may donate only after I post the drawing, and of course I will trust that you will donate the promised amount :)

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask anytime! Let’s do this wonderful thing :)

this is so cool! It’s a quilted set of images (the full quilt is on the site) of a gryphon in motion by Nina Paley. But the coolest part (to me) is that she and her partner used Mathematica to compute the stitch outline as one continuous line so that her embroidery machine could handle it properly. 

She also has other neat quilts, including a Fibonacci Spiral quilt and an arabesque quilt that I like even if it isn’t mathematical :)

Throwing my theories onto the fire asto the science of mythical horse-butted babies. 

nO THIS WAS NOT an excuse to draw tiny chubbly-wubblum baby Clyde and lanky knobbly foal legs. NEVER.

FOR SCIENCE! Like gestating in the horse half would mostly remove the limitations of the human pelvis that restricts the size of a babies head so a foalby could be born mostly ready to go with just a small period of intensive care that human bebes require. Also adding unique behaviors while solving my personal problem with wtf centaurs do with their hands/arms when running. Obviously they wouldn’t do the tuck and run all the time but if you’re scared you don’t want extraneous limbs flapping about throwing your balance off if they weren’t necessary.
