Another comic book bucket head, this time Marvel’s Nova. If only I had done these all in the same lighting/perspective they might have looked nice all together.

Continuing the streak of great comic bucket heads, here the great Victor Von Doom!
Drawn in Inkscape, textured in GIMP
I got this idea to draw some of my favorite bucket headed characters from comics, so I had to start with Iron Man. Here’s hoping the Avenger’s movie this summer is amazing! (Captain America’s helmet looks dumb.)

I had a little too much fun with GMic yesterday, so I thought I’d try it our on a photo with a lot of contrast. You can’t go wrong with a light cycle!
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.
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.
Today is the birthday of Alphonse Mucha, the father of Art Nouveau. A friend of mine had asked me how I would go about putting a face in a cloud using The GIMP so I thought I would combine the two in four easy steps.
Step 1: Find a cloud.
Step 2: Find a good picture (grayscale) and put it on a separate layer above the cloud.
Step 3: Frame the picture
Step 4: Set the layer to “soft light” and then mess with the opacity (this is about 70%)
Not my best work, but I think it will get him started in the right direction…
I came across this awesome series of cute Star Wars people by Joe Wright so I though I’d try to do a cartoony version of Darth Maul.
Colored in Gimp in Ubuntu
Today i started a fun seven day class, which does not yet have me franticly studying like this guy, but may before the week is through.
colored in the Gimp.
Here’s the final doodles for the LEGO card. I just got done coloring them today. I did all the color in The Gimp, and the front one on my new Ubuntu PC I put together and have attached to our 32″ TV. It was pretty fun, but I need more RAM.
I was trying to figure out what to draw today and I looked over at my Boba bobble-head and the decision was made for me. I decided not to use any lines or gradient coloring and to rely on simple shapes. I think it came out pretty good, but I fiddled with it for about an hour more then I should have in The Gimp. Darn compulsive anal-retentiveness.
Continuing my unintentional string of digital stuff this week, I drew this little guy on Inkscape and then colored and textured in The Gimp.
For unknown reasons, I thought of this profile view of Thor and had to doodle it up. I totally ran out of room on the paper which explains why the hammer is so small, but not why I drew it freakishly lopsided. This is just one of those mistakes I couldn’t figure out how to cover up after I initially inked it.
I tried to color this doodle with The GIMP instead of Inkscape. The workflow was a lot different, but was a good exercise in digital painting. I’ve got lots of practice ahead of me before I ever get good at this.
