Free Pegaraptor Rides

As with many things I draw, I have no clue where this came from.  Just scribbling at a Boy Scout meeting.

New Art Machine

New Workspace Layout

New Workspace Layout

I’ve been desperately in need of a better computer for all my digital artwork, and I finally got around to building one.  A lot of parts purchased from a coworkers old gaming machine, some new parts from me, and a little work installing and configuring.  It also now supports multiple monitors, so I added a little mutant arm to the stand behind my desk and put a small old monitor to use for reference, tool placement, or media consumption while working.

What I had: started as an old Windows XP Media Center Edition someone was throwing out.

Single 32 Bit 2.8 GHz Processor
2 Gb Max RAM
Onboard Intel VGA Graphics

What I’ve now built:

Quad-Core 2.3 GHz (each) 64 Bit Processor
8 Gb Ram
Dual ATI Radeon RV670 HD graphics cards (up to four monitors)
Solid State HDD for xubuntu install

Still probably old by some standards but sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much faster.

Scout Chuck Box

Today we had a work day at our local Boy Scout hut so I worked on some chuck boxes with a couple of the boys.  Still needs hinges and some other hardware, but they came out pretty good.

My oldest had also been perfecting his mini-figure scaled Lego ballistas.  The little suckers shoot over ten feet!

Ultron Doodle

I had a few spare moments at the computer tonight to scribble out something, so I thought I’d draw Ultron.  I took the boys to see the new Avengers movie this last weekend, which we all thoroughly enjoyed.  Not sure about the twins not being mutant offspring of Magneto though?

This is little guy I scribbled out during a meeting, I believe based off two random words some one said.  Not sure how my mind works sometimes.

Mother’s Day Doodle

Mothers Day Doodle

Happy Mother’s Day to all you over-worked, oft-not-appreciated heroes.  This was a little doodle I did on the bottom of our church bulletin.  My baby pterodactyls look very Woodstock-ish.

Today in church I decided to doodle Captain America, since the new Avenger’s movie came out this weekend.  Can’t wait to see it.

Barn Wood Quilt

This year for Mother’s Day, Anniversary, and Wife’s birthday ( all usually within a week or so) I finally got around to making her this Barn Wood Quilt she’d asked for some time back.  It’s made with pallet and fencing wood, since I have no old barn to rip apart.
