Some photos of the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank, taken at Bluedot festival. https://mastodon.art/media/W3fJWSyxfonX2AmY1-A https://mastodon.art/media/Cwr_SP6H-SvDPT93-8A https://mastodon.art/media/fJPjCKjkZk7LVgI2E6Y https://mastodon.art/media/ajhD8Yr6Cy4Nv677u6Y

I'm editing photos I took during my little holiday and thought I'd demonstrate something. (This is part of the Lovell telescope.)
Left: image converted from colour to b&w simply by right-click and 'desaturate': https://mastodon.art/media/3HvrgRnJaC1K2H8woew
Right: how I normally edit pics I want to turn b&w. https://mastodon.art/media/m55ScpjdRP_utXeV1Rg
Don't simply hit the desaturate filter! Take the time to play with levels, contrast, and even a bit of noise (blue channel) first.
It's coming along but still has a ways to go (I just re-made the further away horn and have yet to begin shading it). Critique very welcome, redlines (if you can be bothered) especially so!

I keep my art supplies in two of these storage towers from Wilko - they're really useful! There's one on either side of my monitor. http://www.wilko.com/wilko-storage-unit-graphite-slim-5-drawer/invt/0328935
I use a Canon EOS 600D for photography. I'm still learning to use it - I had a 400D for a decade, and this model is a big step up!
Bonus butterfly because butterflies are really just a freaky subset of moths with clubbed antennae. https://mastodon.art/media/8dXE50hYLbv-AR0hbsk
Some little animal doodles from a couple of years ago. #mastoart
1. a birthday stegosaurus https://mastodon.art/media/SSuDFnJTWxDkXNpujH4
3. A manta ray https://mastodon.art/media/14z28P4NXn4SWDCQT2M
4. A snail-me. I unironically love the Turbo franchise so I made a snail-sona in the style of Turbo FAST. https://mastodon.art/media/9YmJJln280OUpOXnXvc
Hi @Yukari! I thought your space unicorn (https://mastodon.social/users/Yukari/updates/1880904) was super cute so I drew fanart!
I'm a scaly and these are my sonas. Duck (who is not a duck) is loosely based on monitor lizards and is my everyday sona. The nameless crocodile is a more idealised version of me (more of a self-insert character than a self-representation), and exists in the same universe as my demon characters.
