Cutting a Plaque

cutting a plaque

The last few weekends I have been working on a prototype plaque for an organization.  I made a vinyl stencil, scroll-sawed around it, then masked off the edges and painted.  I need to get a laser cutter, I could crank these out in minutes.  This is just a process shot I took while cutting.

Cap’n-A Process Video

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.

1. Sketch
2. Subdue the sketch
3. Lines (front foot was junk)
4. New foot
5. Extra line weight and fills
6. Ground Shadow
7. Gray-tone colors
8. Add background texture
9. Layout shadows on figure
10. Color multiply the shadows
11. Add texture to figure

Inking a War Pug

This a clean-up of a doodle from some time back.  All the captured work was done in MyPaint in Linux.

Coloring Nazgul Video

I haven’t done a video capture for awhile, so I thought I’d do one this weekend.  I originally tried capturing the sketch and inking phase, but my settings were all screwed up.  Another day I suppose…

Cherry Blossoms Papercraft

I finally mentally prepaired myself (had a eureka moment and figured out how) to make a cherry blossom papercraft I promised a good friend far too long ago.  The branches and petals were all drawn up in Mypaint, and then I converted everything to paths for my cutter in Inkscape.  I added a lattice structure to hold the petals in place after the initial cutting.  Once they had been glued to the branches, I cut it away.  Over all, I was very happy with the results and have a feeling I’ll probably have to make a few more once people see it.

Here are some process photos:

I’ve actually had this idea bouncing around in my head for quite some time and just finally had time to work on it.  Might look nice on a t-shirt?  I also took this action shot of my nerdy roger decal to try and stimulate some sales in my etsy store.
