ArtByTheInch is not going as well as it might for me; I've had less time available for it this month than last. BUt I'm getting stuff done, and I'm thinking about it, which is probably the more important element. Here's the first product of it that's good enough to show people: Flight of Venice.

In order to get back into the swing of using Photoshop and similar tools, I threw together a wallpaper tonight. You can see it on deviantart here - and some others there as well.

The Art By The Inch thing I'm doing for November is for 10,000 square inches of art. I'm discounting work things for this, as that feels like cheating.

I'll be working with wallpapers and icons, campaign world maps, and sketchbooks - which will be abstracts, scenery, and still life/details.

An A4 page in a sketchbook is about 96 square inches, give or take a bit, so 104 such pages will add up to the total on their own, if fully covered. A 1024x768 pixel wallpaper, at 72dpi, is about 140 square inches, and a 100x100 livejournal icon is just short of two square inches - 11 of them makes 20 square inches, basically. And the usual size I work with for mapmaking is A3, which is 192 square inches all on its own, but inevitably has some blank space, so I'll call it 150 square inches.

That doesn't look too hard, right? Two sketchbook pages, and a wallpaper every day, with some icons and maps thrown in. Suggestions and requests welcome.
