Welcome, creative Farkers, to the Fark Arting Thread!

Share artwork/creative projects past, present, and in progress, embracing all disciplines and various hobbies or crafts: cooking, baking, quilting, needlework, sculpting, drawing, painting, metalsmithing, woodworking, found art, digital, musical, and more. Anything creative you'd like to show off.

This is a community of inspiration, support, advice, ideas, and techniques. Even if you'd rather not submit anything, feel free to join the conversation. Anyone with experience in a specific discipline is more than welcome to share tips and tricks. This is a gallery, but also a place to talk shop.

Thank you!

Is this some kind of bust, or what? Finally done and up for sale, EIP.

Second this.
It's wonderful to see all the talent here.

Slowly working on getting Sweetums, my Checker Cab of 30 years back on the road. We spent the past 5 in a barn; was supposed to get her out in 2020 but COVID had other plans.

Doing a lot better, and now I'm kind of / sort of well enough to try to get things back on track.

I ordered myself a cheap little desktop CNC router over the weekend.The price has come down massively since I looked a few years ago, you can get started for under $300 now which is just mind-blowing to me. I'm not expecting a lot out of it at that price, but I'm still pretty excited about it.

The detail is fantastic! If you don't mind sharing, how long does painting typically take? What leads to your choice of subject?

Glad to hear you're on the road to recovery. This looks like it'll be an amazing project, good luck! Where did you find the car?

I fired up the home brewery this weekend. Disregard the propane burner, it is now an all-electric HERMS system:

I've got an English IPA now sitting in the fermenter.

Here's a Bitter I brewed earlier this year. Delicious.

Much respect for your set up. I don't care if some people hate on the IPA, it's my favorite beer. How long before you can enjoy the English IPA?

I'm a little hop-fatigued at this point. Juicys and Hazys and NE and West Coast don't thrill me. This recipe is designed to be closer to a classic IPA, bitter but not in your face. It should be ready in a couple of weeks. Usually I'll ferment for a week and rack to a secondary for another week, but lately I've been experimenting with no racking. Two weeks in the fermenter, cold crash, then straight into the keg for carbonating. So far I haven't noticed any difference, and life is easier.

Hmmm, I really didn't do anything creative this week.

Curtsies. It really depends on the subject, both scale and scope. On this one about 20 hours. Choice is down to whatever tickles my fancy and can be had for a decent price, unless it's a commission piece. This was a proper attempt at working on skin tones since it is larger than what I normally work with, the size demanded more attention and care.

Ok, weird digital flat oil kitty drawing experiment.

Blood orange slices. Colored pencil on watercolor paper. Sort of in a drawing fruit mood right now.

The skin tones are very nice. You did a fine job. Shadows and highlights are in the right places and the transitions look smooth.

This was a combination photoshop/painting that did for one of the contests. The cat's spacesuit was the painted part.

My original reason for picking it up is for some inlay work in some little cutting boards, coasters, trivets, and the like. Maybe some CNC and resin work instead of just doing inlays, I haven't done much with resin and have been looking for an excuse to do something more there.

I'm also a big fan of more intricate, geometric carvings, so I will play around with that some. I've only spent a few hours working with a CNC at a maker space, so it'll be a learning experience if nothing else!

 Feel free to share any of the stuff you create  in the process. It'd be cool to see how it works.

Thank you! I've owned her for 30 years, we were my daily driver for forever. Found her in upstate NY, there was a guy who had multiple Checker clutches / patches that he'd stashed on government land. So I go up there with a grand in my pocket, cash, and we get into his car. We end up on a tiny paved road no wider than his vehicle, and we drive for miles. 

I think I'm utterly going to get bumped off and left in the sticks. We come across one clutch of Checkers. "See anything you like?" "Hmmm, not yet.." I reply. He goes, "Okay, we got three more places to check out."

Second patch of Checkers I saw her, and it was just absolute love at first sight. Completely head over heels. We've had tons of adventures, and I cannot wait to have more together.

Love your kitty sketches- they are so fun and have such personality. Capt Twinkle is very well done.

Such a great story :) She has such character! What would you like to do to bring her back to mint?
