I was asked to help with a woodworking project and build a stencil for a large (18″ tall) skull that would be painted and then areas be cut away. I redrew the design to clean it up and make it symmetrical, but the overall size exceeded what I can cut on my Silhouette Cameo. So I broke it into two large decals, with registration marks in the eye (will be cut out anyway) and then made another smaller decal to cover the seam so no paint would sneak through. Hopefully it will come out well, this is one project where someone else gets to do all the woodworking.
Drawn in MyPaint on my Intuos 4, traced into vector graphic in Inkscape.

I thought this little guy looked like he needed some color, so I tried to do a quick wash on the computer. We also made a trip recently to our local second hand LEGO store, and I picked out the pieces to make two-toned, squatter, slightly kookier version of the inspiration for this doodle.
I’ve been pretty busy lately and have severely lacked in the posting department. What little I have drawn I’ll be posting over the next day or so, and hopefully get back to more regular posting.
This was a lumberjack I started, but didn’t really finish. Started as a church doodle.
duck tales heroes
I recently heard that Disney will be creating a new Duck Tales series, and I thought I would doodle up the boys. Not sure why I didn’t pick Marvel heroes, but this is what popped in my head.

This weekend we added a scrawny, big earred, long neck, lanky little monster to our family named Scout. Hopefully our sophisticated madam of the house will take to him.
The creative team behind Avatar: Legend of Korra released a new Voltron series a few weeks back on Netflix! (we binge watched it in the first three days…) I’ve been meaning to doodle some part of the new design so here’s what I came up with.
I decided to render a quick step-by-step process video for my Cap’n-A doodle. (The movie was great!) Most of the drawing was in MyPaint (some corrections in Krita) and textures in The GIMP.

This was a request for a going away caricature of “Super G.” I did a couple different poses of this great hero.
I’m really hoping i get a chance to see “Civil War” this weekend. So I doodled a little captain.

supes vs bats
This was a doodle I drew last week during a long day of meetings. Had some time to fart around on the computer so I thought I’d color it in MyPaint and comp it all together in The GIMP. I actually enjoyed this movie, but I didn’t walk in with many expectations.
