A Digital Painting Adventure!

This is what I got after I tried to paint a mug using GIMP. What do you think?? Is it any good??

Like it. It looks good. Have tried using Corel Paint, but found it an 'unintuitive' program---well, it doesn't link in with the way my brain works anyway. Will look at Gimp.

Wow!... It looks like it was hand-painted! Good work! Looking forward to seeing such art-work in the future. :) And what a coincidence! I too downloaded GIMP couple of days back but haven't checked it out yet. Maybe I will... :

Moon goes super

Tonight was a big night what with the list of things happening to the moon. Blue moon, blood moon, super moon. Also it was the big night when people looked up from their smartphone to the skies just for a moment and took selfies with the 'superstar' of the night.

I was curious to know more about the event. So I opened the newspaper, which was an event in itself, and read about it. It seems the last time that these three events took place together was in 1866 March 31st.
And by the time it happens again, we will be in the netherworlds. The other facts I noted were these:

Blood moon- The moon takes on an orange tint due to earth's shadow during lunar eclipse.
Blue moon- The second full moon day in a month.
Super moon- The moon is closest to the earth.

At 6.30 we were gazing upwards with not a very clear idea of what was going to happen. But the moon did not appear. It seemed the moon was taking a long time to show its face. I thought lazily that there might be a hartal the …

Vijayan: (Played by Srinivasan) He is a very funny guy and more idiotic than Dasan. Dasan takes advantage of him a lot- like making him cook, do household chores and constantly reminding him that he is not a g…
