:bulletred: My Appologies :bulletred:
I'm off to France for a 3-week course
I will read comments if I have any
But I might not be able to reply to them any time soon
Not till I get back anyway :(
I promise I'll reply as soon as I can though

:bulletred: Test Tube History :bulletred:
(No, this is NOT the REAL history of test tube babies)
Due to the insistence of numurous deviants who so lovingly supported Test Tube Babies v2,
A third version of this project has been made.

From December 2002 to March 2003, new babies were created on an on-and-off basis
During that period, the 'birth rate' had risen to around 100,
and I was fairly satisfied.
Until I was introduced to Adobe Illustrator.
I then realized that this is a much better tool compared to what I used on the babies before
(watercolours, markers, gel-type pens, etc.)

So after learning the ropes of Illustrator for a couple of months,
I began producing babies all over again in late May
I have no scanner, and have never liked tracing
All the babies, accessories and goodies are mouse-drawn from scratch
A lot of you have sent pics of the stuff u requested for me to include
And I have tried to copy them as faithfully as I could
And no, I didn't do it by tracing. Its all free-hand.
Anyway, I hope I did an okay job :)

PS. Thank you jark for letting me draw you as a baby
All of these babies are great people and amazing artists
I would really appreciate it if you took the time to check out their pages ;)

Q & A:

:bulletblue: Uh... it's not what I expected...

If you are in any way discontented with your baby,
Feel free to send me a note and I would be happy to make changes/corrections

:bulletblue: Can I make my baby into an avvie?

Whyever not?

:bulletblue: Do you have the original .ai files?

Yes, each baby is an individual .ai (illustrator) file
For those of you who don't know, Illustrator allows you to change the size of your .ai file as you please
The quality remains the same, i.e. it doesn't become pixelated
Photoshop can open .ai files as well, but size-changing will affect the image's quality

I would gladly send you an .ai file of your baby
Provided that you notify my via devART notes
And include your email address (or some other form of contact) in the message
For my own ease and convenience, if you don't mind :aww:

:bulletblue: Will there be a fourth version?

We shall see. I have A-levels to deal with next year :(
But I enjoyed this project tremendously, so... we'll see.


:bulletred: Acknowledgments: :bulletred:

Eternal thanks for all those who have supported me throughout this project
And to those who have waited so patiently
Thank you all for checking this out.

Thank you aenim-a for all the trouble I put you through :blushes:



Comments and suggestions welcome
Enjoy. :blowkiss:

Remember Jasinski's deviant wallpaper project? Take that, and make it 20 times as cute. The Result? The Test Tube Babies by snowmask. I'm sure you'll find a bunch of friends in there 'tubified' by snowmask. Brilliant work. (Selected by ^delici0us) ( Featured by delici0us )

They're the deviant usernames under each image :) unfortunately I don't have the source file for this anymore so I can't upload a larger image. I remember this being absolutely enormous though. dA must have sized it down recently :nod:

Actually, it's still in the original size. Just right click the pic and select "open picture in new tab" (or something similar) and the full size image should be viewable.

How've you been snowmask? =)

Well, I stopped doing animations (& avatars) and are into photography now... but things have been great here as well. My company is really doing well, I spend way too much money on studio equipment and occasionally I get to talk to old friends like you! ;-P Though to be fair, we never talked all that much, I just fixed your Christmas avatar one time and we exchanged some notes a couple of years ago if I remember correctly.

Anyway, good to hear you're doing well and great to see you are still as active as ever.

DAMN I REMEMBER that Christmas avatar. THE HAT. You fixed the colours for me didn't you? :hug:

Yeah something with the color and something with it being too big or something (had to be optimized to get under 15 kb). I can't really remember exactly though, though I still remember you were nice and never let your community standing / pageviews go to your head. =)

Can't say I'll ever finish my studio... every time I see a bigger and more powerful flash unit I "need", a bigger softbox, a different softbox, more color gels, another lens, better stands, more backgrounds, extra camera, etc. etc. etc. ;) Your studio looks awesome though, it's important to have a certain place designed specifically to get your creative juices flowing and have no distractions.

What you need is a good storage unit, moreso than a larger studio :) Work with what you've got! And take good note of your methods when you're working. Best approach. Took me almost 2 years to get my studio in order :faint: worked out in the end though.
