Doodle 563 - Reading Rhino

This was the third box cover I did for our 10 year old.

Doodle 562 – css clock finished

Doodle 562 - css clock finished

This is what the clock finally ended up looking like when I got it all working.  It’s based on differing opacity so you should be able to put a background picture behind it too…

Check it out here.

Doodle 561 – css clock

Doodle 561 - css clock

I wanted to make a clock using the canvas element of HTML5, but was sad to find that it’s still not supported in all browsers.  Instead I decided to try doing something with css and divisions.  I sized everything by em’s so it scales super easily to be the full height of the window.  This is the layout before I got the clock mechanics working.

Doodle 560 – Tron Recognizer

Doodle 560 - Tron Recognizer

The boys had their old tub of duplo blocks out this morning and I made them a Recognizer from Tron so I thought I would doodle one for today.  Only a few more months until the movie!!!

Doodle 559 – Reepicheep

Doodle 559 - Reepicheep

Tonight, we watched a little bit of Prince Caspian, and I gave our 10 year old son our Chronicles or Narnia book, so he can just read the books instead of asking a billion questions.  My favorite character has to be Reepicheep, who is coming back in the next movie this fall!

Doodle 558 – Batman and the Red Hood

August 26, 2010

Doodle 558 - Batman and the Red Hood

I finally had a chance to watch the latest DC movie Batman: Under the Red Hood, which was really good though pretty violent.  This is my idea of what the plot would have boiled down to if they had tried to make it a family friendly flick.

Doodle 557 – Science Snake

Doodle 557 - Science Snake

This was the second textbook our oldest son brought home.

Doodle 556 – Math Monkey

August 24, 2010

Doodle 556 - Math Monkey

With the start of the new school year, our oldest has several textbooks he needs to cover so I told him I’d draw something on them if he brought them home.  This is the first one he brought home.

Doodle 555 – Red Hulk and Spock

August 23, 2010

Doodle 555 - Red Hulk and Spock

This was a request to draw either the Red Hulk or something Star Trek.  As usual, I tried to put them both together in one doodle.  I barely had any time to color it, but thought It wouldn’t make much sense without it.

Doodle 554 – Crocodile (word)Hunter

August 22, 2010

Doodle 554 - Crocodile (word)hunter

I’ve had quite a few people say that I should draw more crocodiles, so this play on words popped in my mind and I had to doodle it!

Doodle 553 – 50ft Bert

August 21, 2010

Doodle 553 - 50ft Bert

This was a request for a 50ft tall Bert from the Racoons TV show.  I thought I would have him chasing away the bad guy  Cyril Sneer and use perspective to show his size.

Doodle 552 – Ninja Pirate

Doodle 552 - Ninja Pirate

I’ve been getting behind on the requests lately, so I thought I would try to catch up this weekend.  Someone at work asked me to put the debate  about pirates vs ninjas to bed, and combine the two.  So, we had a lengthy discussion about what traits of each to use, and this was the result.  I’ll probably get it colored sometime soon.

Doodle 551 – Glowing Line

Doodle 551 - Glowing Line

I made something similar to this at work today, so I thought I would reproduce it for a doodle.  I was going for a glossy glowing field growing out over the dull bar.

Doodle 550 – Eye Button

August 18, 2010

Doodle 550 - Eye Button

More inkscape stuff for the week.  I decided to doodle a faux glossy button and I thought I would make some kind of eye icon in the middle.
