LEGO Masters – Taker-Waker

Taker-Waker

During a recent episode of  LEGO Masters, the married team Amy and Tyler created this funny little rat character called the Taker-Waker that I kept thinking about for days later.  So when I had a few spare moments, I decided to doodle my version of their design in my sketchbook, and then I found some more time later to color him on the computer.  If you haven’t seen the show, it’s quite a lot of fun to see the teams build such different things from the same root idea.  Stay safe and healthy!

Germ Mule

Germ Mule

A week before the Valentine’s holiday our youngest son came home from school with a nasty case of the Flu and a little tonsillitis.  Needless to say the house went into full quarantine mode which only had one problem.  Our little cat Scout loved to go back and forth rubbing and getting pets from both the ill and the healthy so we started calling him the “Germ Mule”.  The healthy ones in the family had to start shunning him until the contagious period had passed.

Clone Wars Poster – 17 Years in the Making

clone wars poster

A few weekends ago we took on a project to organize all our old family photos.  One of the unexpected things I can across was a Clone Wars cartoon drawing I had started for our oldest son probably 17 years ago.  It looks like I had done some sort of composite image from references, drew a grid over it, and then redid a larger scale version of that in pen on some oak tag.  These were all methods I learned in highschool and clearly predated all the skills I’ve picked up over the years with the computer.

I figured I would finish it up with some color but leave the original lines I had drawn intact.  Now I’ll have to print up a bigger version for both boys.  It was a fun little surprise to find!

Trylo-Renasaurus

Here’s the latest little Try-Ranosaurus doodle of mine, this time with a Star Wars theme.  I went back and watched episode VII and VIII before the boys and I went to see The Rise of Skywalker.  This was obviously inspired by the final scenes of The Force Awakens.

Hopefully this will be my last off topic dinosaur and I’ll get back to cute ones, but I also want to do some Star Wars ones too now…  Too easily distracted.  Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas this year and a happy holidays!

Not sure why my attempts at cute dinosaurs so quickly wandered off to comic book characters, but i scribbled this doodle out with another one on the same plane ride as the baseball player.  I’ll probably post his companion in a few days.

Try-Ranosaurus

Try-Ranosaurus Baseball

I recently had an idea to try developing a single character for possible illustration projects.  I decided upon a cute little T-rex that can “try” out lots of different things.  First activity up is baseball.  These were originally sketched out on paper while I was on a flight.  We’ll see what else will come of this little guy.

Bird King Colored

Bird King colored

Next up on the list of Inktober doodles in the Bird King from Cristian Ortiz.  Some of the linework was goobered up when I isolated them for the big wallpaper piece (source for all these colored doodles), but I just rolled with it.

Thanksgiving

vegan lasagna

Happy Thanksgiving!  I used to always draw some kind of turkey this time of year but seemed to have neglected them these last few years.  Well, I’m bringing it back so Bobby Gobbler wanted to offer you a meat free alternative.  (We will be eating turkey and ham at our house)

S’More Cyclops

Cyclops

I’m still cranking out some colored versions of my Inktober doodles and I thought my little Skottie Young inspired Cyclops should be next.
