Newtonmas 2011 Comic- Our heroine takes a fall

A few things happened after yesterdays Newtonmas Card photoshoot.

So there I was, down the bottom of the cliff while Spitfire went off to jump out of her cake. HA!, so she says, I'll catch up with her in a short while. 
Newton was not the first of the age of reason. He was the last of the magicians, the last of the Babylonians and Sumerians ... Isaac Newton, a posthumous child born with no father on Christmas Day, 1642, was the last wonder child to whom the Magi could do sincere and appropriate homage... Why do I call him a magician? Because he looked on the whole universe and all that is in it as a riddle, as a secret which could be read by applying pure thought to certain evidence, certain mystic clues which God had laid about the world to allow a sort of philosopher's treasure hunt to the esoteric brotherhood... He regarded the Universe as a cryptogram set by the Almighty—just as he himself wrapt the discovery of the calculus in a cryptogram when he communicated with Leibniz. By pure thought, by concentration of mind, the riddle, he believed, would be revealed to the initiate.
— John Maynard Keynes

Have a Happy Solstice or Christmas or Newtonmas

To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.- Sir Isaac Newton

I think this is Deviant Art page 3

       I have had even more pictures done, I generally just look in the Deviant Art Forums on who is having a special, or just search Commission, on the front page search and cut the results down to the last week. Sometimes I find people having specials, and if I like their styles, I might order a commission.

When they ask for a back story I usually just say do an image search for "The Dirty Pair".

I don't usually go in for a bust picture, normally I prefer a full body one.

I call this one "Have you seen my Pistol?" The artist was charging $2 US!  eroma.deviantart.com

I actually asked for a pin up style picture, and I added a list of suggestions. It was only when I looked at the picture, and the incomplete robot, and then her email address ending in .it, did I realise she was probably a good Catholic girl and English was not her strong point....Ha!
         I called this one Space Ranger Plasma and the Incomplete Robot.

There are only two styles of portrait painting; the serious and the smirk. - Charles Dickens

Even more pictures from Deviant Art

So here I have a few more Portraits I have had done by Artists from DeviantArt 

As you can see, I don't have much confidence in her waving that Light Sabre around.

Here I am with Gospeed Racer (I promised her I would do this years ago) as done by deliriumlina.deviantart.com

I wasn't going to get a Chilbi Style portrait, but I liked how http://cacandy1988.deviantart.com/  did them.

And lastly a $5 special from http://ewgraphics.deviantart.com

I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens. Georg Baselitz
