I only have two months left to work at my current job. Afterwards I will be doing some travelling and hopefully entering university autumn next year.
I have worked here for almost two years, and the only thing I will truly miss is my Mac Pro. It has a quad-core Xeon processor and has never died on me, never crashed and never lost any unsaved work, it has been by far the friendliest entity at this place and I thought, before we have to part for good, I will use the shit out of it while I still can and I spent a whole week and about 5 GB of memory drawing this.

I've never drawn a manga. I never even felt like I could, or wanted to do it. But I had one of those unexpected flashes of inspiration while riding the bus home a couple of days ago and it stuck to me so persistently that I finally succumbed and will give it a try. Think of this as the promotional poster for my manga project, [biohazard]. The girl is one of the main characters and her name is Jerry, which is short for Jeremy. I wonder to how many people it is obvious what she is doing in the picture. Or how many would read a manga like this.

Done on my trusty Mac Pro 4.1 (its name is Crank, by the way) with a Wacom Graphire tablet in Photoshop CS4. Took hours, dozens of them.

I would. I'm always fascinated by Mendel's works.
It's a very lovely drawing. :D

Hraaasok, mnam :meow:... Inac pri prvom pohlade ma napadlo ze preco su tam inej farby kvety na jednej rastlinke, ale potom som sa zadivala do detailov a pri precitani description som nevedela odpovedat :(...Ale co, mna aj tak viac zaujimaju obrazky ako genetika :P....

(Inak nema dievcinka pripominat teba? Taku bodkovanu satku mas na ID nie? :))

fiha ty mas teda uctihodne pozorovacie schopnosti o.o ale hej, mam presne taku cervenu bodkovanu satku - to je ale asi tak vsetko co s Jerry mam spolocne. akurat ma napadlo ze by sa jej taka satka hodila tak ju dostala :] Jerry je velmi optimistickej a aktivnej povahy, opak mna.
A hrasok je dobra vec (mnam), a genetika vec komplikovana, tak si z toho nic nerob :]

Mna ta satka zaujala uz davno, lebo mam podobnu :D...Ale jasne, ty si ten rysavy chibik co hra go, nie??

A o genetike ako veci komplikovanej viem svoje...Na matutitach z bioly som si stastlivo vytiahla prave tuto otazku, ktorej som sa v ucebnom programe akademickeho tyzdna uctivo vyhla :D...Ale z milosti ma nechali prejst, takze som obisla lepsie ako niektori ini :lol:....

ajeje, genetiku by som si teda na maturitach vytiahnut nechcela! hlavne nie tu prakticku, pocitat pravdepodobnosti dedicnosti mi fakt nejde. ja som z biologie nematurovala, teraz to dost lutujem :]
inak ta satka je dost rozsirena, cez sviatky som na nu narazila u tety. a ten chibik co hra go sa sice vola rovnako, ale tiez sa k nemu uz moc nepriznavam :D ja seba radsej moc nekreslim XD

Fuh! Tak to ja by som zasa skor nieco vypocitala (VTEDY) ako odriekat tam tie poucky (nedostali zo mna jedinu, ale zlutovali sa a dali mi 3-ku :D:D)...
Hmm, myslim si ze maturita z bioly by ti nepomohla k tomu aby si sa o to viac zaujimala :P...

Haha, no tak svet potrebuje aj narcistickejsie stvory...Ja sa rada parodujem :lol:...

poucky su v kazdej knizke, ale pocitanie som uz dokonca parkrat vyuzila v mojom kazdodennom zivote (ktory je asi dostatocne specificky XD) - takze mas moju podporu!
Mas asi uplnu pravdu ze by ma maturita nedoviedla k mojmu zaujmu o biologiu, ten zaujem som v sebe objavila az davno po tom co som mala hotovu nielen maturitu ale aj studium grafickeho dizajnu XD
mozno by mi ale ulahcila moju zatial neuspesnu snahu spravit prijmacky na prirodovedecku fakultu XD
a myslim si ze sebaparodia a narcismus v zdravom mnozstve su velmi obdivuhodne :D

Och more! Akekolvek stredoskolske ucivo je pre mna uz vedomost zo stredoveku davno zabudnuta a zapadana prachom :P...Takze pocut ze niekto nieco take vyuzil v beznom zivote je zaujimave :lol:...
Tebe jedna skola nestaci??!! Ale tak zasa byt studentom ma svoje vyhody...A je fascinujuce ze existuju aj ludia ktory na podobne odbory chcu ist z vlastneho presvedcenia a CHUTI...Preto mi je fakt luto ze ti v tom stoji administrativa :/...

Kedze som si zvolila zameranie ktoreho vykonavanie ma nebavi... jedna skola mi fakt nestaci XD Myslim ze laska k vede sa moc nelisi od inych lasok, ludia su rozni :]
Ono mi v tom ani tak nestoji administrativa, skor jazykovy chaos sposobeny vyrastanim v dvoch roznych statoch, ceske nazvy zivocichov a moja fakt uzasna vlastnost ochoriet zo strachu pred skuskou XD

Vyzera to fakt velmi zaujimavo, ja osobne sa velmi tesim (kde si to mozem pozriet? :) ). Pre mna si ty umelec s obrovskou dusou v dielach, cize kazde dielko od teba je uzasne a plne emocii.

zatial sa to neda pozriet nikde, vzhladom na to ze toto je jediny existujuci obrazok :] snazim sa trochu zapracovat do postav, layoutu a tak skor nez sa do toho pustim nejak naostro, ale chcela som spravit aspon jeden obrazok co by som mohla ludom ukazovat ked sa im budem snazit vysvetlit co to vlastne chcem robit :D
tesi ma ze niekto citi z mojich diel nieco z toho co tam davam. dakujem! :aww:

It looks really interesting, i like specially the DNA circle, a really cute and soft way to symbolice something genetical - not one singe ruff or sharp part there!

(oh - and the rest of the painting is good, too - but i still love that simple DNA symbol!)

I positively adore that shape. If I get lucky, a guy from Baltimore will actually make me one out of stainless steel in 3D. I imagine plasmids look like this, too bad most of the textbooks I read so far display them as boring two concentric circles. Have you tried drawing this shape by the way? It is more difficult than it looks XD

I havend tried it, but i know how difficult it can be to draw something symetrical!
Don't forget to upload the 3D version when you get it ;)
And yeah - a small plasmid could look like that ^^

When I visited the Mendel museum in Brno (his garden is way smaller than I expected), they had one of those typical guestbooks towards the end of the exhibition where visitors could leave comments... it was fun to look through the entries, some american girl just wrote "I :heart: Punnett squares", complete with the heart drawn with pink neon marker. Made me laugh. You just reminded me XD
Probably the best comment any of my art has recieved here on DA so far XD
