Doodle 702 – LEGO Boba

January 17, 2011

Doodle 702 - LEGO Boba

In lieu of that thousand LEGO purchase I mentioned yesterday, I thought I’d try to make a simpler mosaic out of the LEGO we have around the house.  This Boba Fett bust is what I ended up with.

Doodle 701 – LEGO Pallete

Doodle 701 - LEGO Palette

I’ve seen a lot of amazing LEGO mosaics lately and thought I would attempt to figure out how to map one out with the GIMP.  I ended up creating a very limited color palette and then forcing images to index with just those colors.  Now I just need to buy a few thousand more bricks a couple square yards of free floor space and I might be able to make something really nice looking.

Here’s a few other images I just fooled around with.

Doodle 699 - Dr Nefario

Our Friday night movie this week is Despicable Me, which was hilarious and a lot more endearing then I expected when we say it in the theater.

Doodle 698 - Baby Hippo

Today my wife’s friend flew in to visit for a week and brought her almost 1 year old son with her.  He’s a pretty happy little guy and has the cutest hippo teeth coming in, which was the reason for this doodle.

Doodle 697 – Ray Lamontagne

Doodle 697 - Ray Lamontagne

Today I found an amazing version of Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy by the awesome Ray Lamontagne.  I must have listened to it a dozen times and I’m sure it will be stuck in my head for days.

Doodle 696 - Next Einstein

Today Google was nice enough to remind me how “not smart” I am, with their science fair search for the next Einstein.  Here’s to you Al!

Doodle 695 - Chewbrian

For some reason I’ve never seen the Family Guy Star Wars parodies, so I finally put them on my NetFlix queue and I got Blue Harvest in the mail today.  Definitely won’t let the boys watch these, but I hope their pretty funny.

Doodle 694 – Thought of You

Doodle 694 - Tought of You

Today I watched this amazing motion studio video someone posted on cghub called Thought of You.  I thought I would fiddle around with MyPaint a little more.  It’s definitely worth checking out the extra footage.

Doodle 693 – Wild Kratts

Doodle 693 - Wild Kratts

The boys have found a new show lately that they really like called Wild Kratts.  It stars the Kratt brothers on animated adventures rescuing animals and using their creature power suits to learn about the animals abilities.

This is my firs time using MyPaint in Ubuntu, which was pretty fun.  I’ll have to try it out a little more.

Doodle 692 - Mantis Art Card

I tried to go with a little more of my usual style for this one, but it just came across as messy.  Mantis from Kung Fu Panda, most awesome bug ever!

Doodle 691 – AT-AT Sit Art Card

Doodle 691 - AT-AT Sit Art Card

I always thought AT-ATs looked like funny dogs, so when I saw our boys toy today, this idea popped in my head.

Doodle 690 – Big Guy Art Card

Doodle 690 - Big Guy Art Card

Big Buy (BGY-11) popped in my head today for an art card subject, so that’s what I doodled.  I thought his simplicity would be a benefit at first, but it left no margin for error.  There are a few lines in there I wish I had laid down a little better.

This is my second art card for the week, showing the other side of Boba and Yoda’s engaging conversation.
