A Tiny Lizard Child Model

Here are two pictures I took of a tiny lizard. It posed perfectly for me throughout dozens of pictures with the camera inches away. I’m sure it is a child model in the lizard world.

Surreal Photo Manipulations

Hi! I’ve always loved surreal and fantasy art, and was inspired by Zev from Fiddleoak, an incredibly talented 15 year old (see here and here), to make my own photo manipulations in Photoshop. I used pictures of my sister and nature taken at a beautiful state park.

Here they are! I know they aren’t perfect, but for my first try at cropping and relocating people like this, I’m happy with them.

You can click on the pictures to see them full sized.

Floral Leaf Doodle

I drew this design in pencil a few weeks ago. I usually like to draw in pen since you can get “blacker” blacks that way and more contrast, but one advantage pencil has over pen is shading. I couldn’t get the same smooth transitions in the gradients with pen.

Overcast days make for the best pictures Eternal God Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast!
⋯✦⋯
Listen to the episode on my blog byhananiah.com (link in bio). What fun it is to sit down and sketch the first draft of a new app mockup.
⋯✦⋯
This how I design an app or software feature:
⋯
1. Recieve a brain dump from the person who has the concept. Scribble these thoughts down in bullet point format in one of my many notebooks.
.
(My current notebook is red with a vintage anatomical heart, which might seem a little goth, but I just intend for it to remind me not to be an emotionless robot in life.)
⋯
2. Sketch draft of initial app flow. I don't pay much attention to details at this point. It's intended for a high level proof of concept to make sure the features' structures I in envision in my head will work in two dimensions on the screen.
⋯
3. Create the screens as wireframes in the computer. Polish as I go to add detail and fill in gaps from the sketches.
⋯
4. Then I send for feedback and we iterate. This is my least favorite part, as often complicated technical questions come up I have to figure out, and I have to think at a high level of detail.
⋯
5. I take the final wireframes and create "pixel perfect" designs with color and fonts and pretty layout in Adobe Illustrator.
⋯
Then we're done with the mockups! Magic accomplished.
⋯✦⋯
(Please add occasional half-steps for procrastination. To rejuvenate my mind, of course. Heh. That's what I'm doing right now by making this post.) Found in the mental disorders section. Misplaced? I disagree with anyone who sees introversion as a disadvantage. Valentine's Day evening well spent learning a fitting song

An advantage of sketching initial web mockup ideas for yourself is that you get to be very profound with your placeholder text.
⋯✦⋯ Inspiration. Freehanding a game of 3d tetris is not the easiest thing I've ever done. But if you look past the non-parallel lines and rectangles that should be squares, I think this is a playable view.
⋯✦⋯
I'm a total nerd, and love to play 3d tetris while listening to books. However, I have been unable to find a modern web version of 3d tetris, and resort to playing an ancient Flash version.
-
Since I am a web designer and have developer friends, we've discussed making an html5 version of 3d tetris, in addition to a mobile app that is actually playable.
-
This project has yet to come to fruition, but perhaps someday. It's a high priority item on my list of ambitious personal projects.
