The new piece of Inkscape practice is now up for this week as my journal header. I'm not sure how good Samus looks in cartoon form; the problem with a chibi-esque Samus is the she should be all shoulder-pad, and a chibi sized arm doesn't really work well with that cannon. I might have over-done the shinies too, although I think the style of battle armour would work well in some sort of space-themed action game. I'll have to keep that in mind.
I wanted to finish this off yesterday but was delayed by a killer headache. I'm starting to think my old monitor is up to replacement age; it's getting harder to judge colours when working with images and web design, and the picture is wobbling slightly from time to time.
I've made a post in the hardware section
to ask for recommendations on a new monitor purchase, as I haven't been keeping up with latest developments.
