Mr Freeze

Mr Freeze

This is a doodle I did during some training (still listening).  This was mostly inspired by the show of Batman: The Animated Series posters coming up this weekend at Mondo.  Victor Freeze was always my favorite, and his poster looks sweet!

Black Panther

Black Panther

This weekend I had the chance to see Black Panther twice, and it was even better the second time.  Can’t wait for Infinity War this summer!

Eeyore with Scarf

Eeyore Scarf

My awesome mother-in-law has been working for sometime now to thoughtfully knit scarves that would be given to people receiving various treatments at her local hospital.  Her spirit animal is Eeyore, so I doodled up a version of him that would show up well at about a nickel size, and made some tags for her on my cutter.  The pose was heavily influenced by one I saw online, but I redrew the whole thing from scratch to clean it up and added the scarf.  Hopefully the little guy, the message of the tags, and the knowledge that someone is wishing the patients well will bring some joy to their hearts and speed along their healing.

Inktober Posting Fail

This year, life was much too busy to keep up with inktober past the first week or so.  I did get a few more drawn, but never got around to posting them until now.  Please enjoy them below.

Inktober – Peanut Monsieur

Peanut Monsieur

This day of Inktober brings me back to my Comical prompt.  So… somehow I ended up uttering peanut butter in a french accent, which then made me think of “peanut monsieur” so that’s what I thought I’d doodle.  Why I combined a beret, a curly mustache, mime makeup, cigarette, and sandals to portray this character, I can’t really say.  I suppose it’s a little glimpse into my odd thought process.

Inktober – Dachshund


For day nine, I’m back on Biological for my prompt.  Last week I posted a doodle of our kitten, so here’s a quick one of my in-laws dog Snickers.

Inktober – Corn Crib

Corn Crib

Today’s inktober doodle for the architectural prompt is a corn crib.  I was originally just going to draw a barn, but this kind of took it’s place in the process.  I grew up on a farm with one pretty much like this.

Inktober – Volcano


My prompt for the seventh day of inktober is Geological, so I decided to doodle a volcano.  For the rest of the month I will keep repeating these seven theme prompts, and see what different things I come up with.

Krita 3.3.0 – Rejoice!

Krita 3.3.0

I have been using Krita for probably the last year and have slowly been getting more comfortable moving away from MyPaint.  I thought I was going to rely on this application even more so after I purchased a Surface Pro 3.  There was a horrible problem though.  When I bought my Surface Pro, the Krita version at the time did not support the n-trig based pen hardware, so I was forced to use the 32-bit version which still had some old compatibility built in.  That version would often crash when I was editing large, complicated files, or when I was trying to work too fast with processor/memory heavy functions.

Well, last week they released version 3.3.0, and it’s got n-trig support baked into the 64-bit version!  Having updated, it works like a dream, and at least one other annoying thing has been fixed.

I used to be able to draw with the front of the pen, then flip it over to the rear and it would automatically switch to an erasing brush.  In most other applications, flipping the pen back to the front would automatically return you to your previous brush and keep drawing.  This was not the case with the 32-bit 3.2.1 version, but it works perfectly in 3.3.0!  I imagine there are other improvements that I haven’t found yet, but I’m ecstatic so far.  If you’ve never tried Krita out, I would heartily recommend it, especially for Surface product owners who are looking for an open source illustrating application.

I also noticed that my “Stuff” page is super out of date, so I should be updating that soon.

P.S.  I really would love to see a replay function like ProCreate.

Inktober – Tree Shore

Tree shore

Today, for day six of Inktober, my prompt is Floral.  I thought I would doodle a tree, by the sea, which is a horrible rhyme.
