Was going to work on fixing up guede_mazaka's icon, but then realized the file's on my work computer. And what are icon files doing on my work computer, you ask? Uh...

So I'm doing this instead. Been doing icons lately using other people's knotwork, but this is my own knot.

Overcame my technology woes (yay!), for the most part anyway, to work on it. I didn't get to scan it in, but I did manage to take a very fuzzy picture with my friend's digital video camera (you know, the sort that lets you do vidphone conversations). Since the camera's not set up to take that sort of detailed pic, it meant I had to re-trace all the lines by hand--with a mouse, which is hard!--before finishing it in GIMP...so the lines are shakier than I'd like, but I've finally decided that it lends just that touch of hand-drawn charm to the finished art.

I wasn't planning on doing a bat, honest. Once I realized the start of the knot I was drawing looked like ears, it was all downhill from there. Stupid sexy movie won't leave my head.

I usually do my knotwork with a grid, so this was the first time I tried it free-hand. I really like it way it turned out.

Edited: replaced by neater version.
