Turkey Weekend Projects

more widgets

more widgets

This weekend I had a little time to fart around in the garage so I made a few more widgets.  The cedar was chipping prety badly when I was shaving the corners with my router.  They turned out much better when I just cut the corners on my table saw.

I also built this little rabbit hay feeder as a present.

Jive Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  (a few days late…)  This last Monday we had a Cub Scouts meeting were we worked on the artists badge.  They should have been able to talk to a local artist in their area, but they were stuck talking to me.  Part of the lesson was the drawing above.  They all made suggestions about what to draw, and then I let them each work on the coloring and shading.

A Hobbit

My boys asked me to draw a hobbit after they saw my Legolas, so I doodled this out while we were watching Korra.

Monument Valley

I’ve been obsessed with this gorgeous android game called “Monument Valley” lately.  It’s only 10 levels but all optical/spatial puzzles.

Monday’s sketch_dailies topics was Legolas, which I thought would be fun to draw.  It just took me all week, in three different mediums, to get it done…

This is a little request I’ve been working on lately, which I hinted at last post.  Mostly done in MyPaint with some layering in The GIMP.  Here’s a gif of the overall workflow.

Thought I’d post some pics of a few things I’ve finished lately or had cluttering my desk.

Weekend Projects

This weekend, I worked on quite a few different little projects, most of which, still need a little work.  Above is what I call my “fidget widget” because I toss it around in the office to keep my hands busy.  This one is a 4″x4″x4″ but I made the original as a 4″x4″x6″.

Here’s some pumpkins I cut for the wife out of 1/2″ MDF, and a little twine “thankful” banner I’m making for above the table.
