Cyber Stan the Internet Man

cyber stan

I was at a conference the other day and the presenter said that all techy briefings need a cloud in them.  I imagined the old Microsoft paperclip guy replaced by a cloud guy and scribbled a rough sketch in my notebook.  My neighbor was a fan, so i cleaned it up in the computer for him.

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.

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.

Batgirl Colored

This doodle was colored in Krita on my Surface Pro 3.  The color distracts a little from all the things I don’t like about it.

Batgirl

batgirl lines

In my continuing efforts to work more on drawing the female form, I thought I would take a stab at Batgirl.  Not happy with it, but it’s not horrible.

Proportions are a little off, pose is wonky, needs more dynamic action…

Original in pencil and brushpen, quickly converted to lines in Inkscape, then some fixes in Krita.  All on my Surface Pro 3.

Lethal League Switch

letahl league switch

The other day my boys were able to get some video game time with their cousins and were playing some crazy thing called lethal league.  It’s like ping pong on crack.  I played the character Switch for a bit and was inspired to doodle this guy later that night.

Niko and the Sword of Light

Amazon released an original show today that will be a cute adventure for all ages.  They released a pilot a few months ago for user voting, which also ended up winning an daytime emmy award.

Birthday Card

My oldest son envisioned an eclectic assemblage of characters for a birthday card he wanted to give someone, so we ended up making this.
