Today’s bulletin doodle was the young Nova from Marvel comics. I decided to try rough coloring it real quick on my Surface, but the picture I took to start with wasn’t the best.
Windows 10 has a pretty nice screen capture capability built into the X-Box app, so I decided to record a doodle. I’m still trying to get used to the thing. I’m not used to having my hand in the way of my screen. I’m also going to have to switch some of the software I’ve been using. I could only get pressure sensitivity to work in 32-bit Krita and not at all in MyPaint, which I’m much more comfortable drawing with. Time to learn new tricks I suppose.
I recently bought myself a refurbished Surface Pro 3 and this doodle was one of the first things I drew on it while watching the return of Samurai Jack.
I was asked to make a two sided wayfaring sign for a friend’s work which was a new challenge for me. I decided to do the graphics on foam board, and sandwich it between two pieces of plexiglass in a custom frame. I also drew the crazy looking duck for them.
A family friend had one of those picture letter things made for their family but could never find a frame it would fit in. So I just made her one.
This was actually my bulletin doodle from two weeks ago, but I’ve been crazy busy of late.
My mother-in-law’s spirit animal is Eeyore. She found a picture like this with the text in standard Meme writing that she wanted for her desk, but I thought I’d try to do something a little nicer. So I had to paint Eeyore out of the background, isolate him separately, and then cut and assemble. Hopefully she will like it.
Today I went with my boys to the local Minifigures and More store to pick up some LEGO loot. I’ve been wanting to build some miniature mechs in the style of eduty over on flickr. After slowly digging through a few of the tables, I think I’ve got the pieces to build quite a few.
I made a few different versions of his frames, but I liked this last one the best and ran with that. I thought of finishing up another one, but then this happened.
My highschooler had to create an instrument for his physics class that would demonstrate vibration so I helped him make this last weekend. I was proud of all the work and planning he put into it. It was built around a wooden bowl he wanted to use for a resonance chamber.
I had a little time the past few days to add more details, fix a few things and lay down some color. We still have a pass needed to add lots of paint, emblems, and some wear and tear.
