Doodle 228 – A Little Too Late

Doodle 228 - A Little Too Late

Doodle 228 - A Little Too Late

I had to do my PT test today, and after maxing everything else, I was 5 seconds late with my run time.  I needed a 9:48 or better for the 1 1/2 mile, but came in at 9:53

Doodle 227 – Inconsiderate T-Rex

Doodle 227 - Inconsiderate T-Rex

Doodle 227 - Inconsiderate T-Rex

This idea reminds me of how my boys are when their playing.  Having so much fun they’re completely oblivious to everyone around them.  At least I got to draw my initials before getting squished.

Doodle 226 – Swat Kats

Doodle 226 - Swat Kats

Doodle 226 - Swat Kats

I ran into a somewhat random Swat Kats reference today, so I thought ol’ Razor and T-Bone could use a doodle.  As usual, it didn’t come out quite like I imagined, but I’ll blame it on sleepiness.

Doodle 225 – Front Porch

Doodle 225 - Front Porch

Doodle 225 - Front Porch

I was sitting outside letting the dog out and thought I’d doodle a little porch scene, which is odd, since I never seem to draw any backgrounds for my doodles.  I hope we have a quiet little place like this someday.

Doodle 224 – Unlikely Bird Bath

Doodle 224 - Unlikely Bird Bath

Doodle 224 - Unlikely Bird Bath

After last week, it was nice to just draw on some paper again.  As usual, I have no idea where this came from.  Just popped in my head.  Maybe those umbrellas pop up for a reason?

Doodle 223 – Thundercat Pt. 5 Shading

Doodle 223 - Thunder Cats(shading)

Doodle 223 - Thunder Cats(shading)

Tonight I finished shading all the characters, put in a background, and added other random things.  In all, I wish it had turned out better, but I’m glad that it’s done.

Doodle 222 – Thundercats Pt. 4 Color Depth

Doodle 212 - Thunder Cats(color depth)

Doodle 222 - Thunder Cats(color depth)

Tonight I worked to add depth to the flat colors and change the lines from all black to instead correspond the color they surround.  Tomorrow is the last day and I’ll shade and add background.

Doodle 221 – Thundercats Pt. 3 Flats

September 23, 2009
Doodle 221 - Thunder Cats(flats)

Doodle 221 - Thunder Cats(flats)

Tonight I laid down all the flat colors for this doodle series, which took quite a while.  Tomorrow I’ll add color depth, and change the line color to match.

Doodle 220 – Thundercats Pt. 2 Lines

Doodle 220 - Thunder Cats(lines)

Doodle 220 - Thunder Cats(lines)

This is the second days work on the weeks project.  I imported the sketch into inkscape and drew the lines with my little Wacom tablet.  I definitely do better work with a real pen, but I wanted to do this all on the computer.  I need the practice anyway.  Tomorrow flat colors.

Doodle 219 – Thundercats Pt. 1

Doodle 219 - Thundercats pencils

Doodle 219 - Thundercats pencils

I decided to do another 5 part series this week, and all I could think of drawing were the Thundercats.  It’s not really cheating though since there are five of them.  Tomorrow I’ll do inks on the computer.

Here’s a little thumbnail I did to figure out the layout.

Doodle 218 – Raygun Kid

Doodle 218 - Raygun Kid

Doodle 218 - Raygun Kid

This was another random idea that became a doodle.  I bet this kid is a little turd too.  I think I’m getting a little bit better with doodling on the computer, but I really wish I had one of those Wacom Cintiq monitors/pads.  Anybody got a spare they’re not using.

Doodle 217 – Blender and Inkscape

September 19, 2009
Doodle 217 - Blender and Inkscape

Doodle 217 - Blender and Inkscape

I just figure out today that you can import svg paths into blender, which means that I can hopefully draw stuff in Inkscape (where I’m comfortable) and then do 3D effects in blender (where I have no idea what I’m doing).  Have to find the time to figure it out though.

Doodle 216 – Ice Cream Tragedy

Doodle 216 - Ice Cream Tragedy

Doodle 216 - Ice Cream Tragedy

I’m not really sure where this idea came from, but it just popped in my head.  He was so upset when his ice cream tumbled, he forgot to hold onto of his balloon. This is normal of most childhood tragedies I suppose.

Doodle 215 – 9 Without 3D

Doodle 215 - 9 Without 3D

Doodle 215 - 9 Without 3D

I guess I always assumed that 9 would be in 3D since it’s from the same studio that did Coraline.  I’m heading out tonight after the boys go to bed to see it, bummer it’s only in 2D though…
