Samurai Roller Mech
With the LEGO Ninjago movie coming out soon, I’ve really been hoping they will sell a set based on Cole’s quake mech. They built a little tiny one, but I’m still hopeful. This random samurai doodle was inspired by the design.
I really wish the LEGO group would consider making some UCS sets that are true to the models in movie. I was disappointed by the green dragon and the fire mech sets.
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.
Golden Eye LEGO mech
Yesterday, my oldest and I were building some LEGO mechs in the living room, and this is what I ended up with. It’s construction is very similar to my last one.
LEGO Mech stripped
I scribbled this little guy out in a meeting, inspired by the Helldivers skull logo. I also tried to keep the lines really light and took a picture before shading it. Below are three different attempts to clean up the inks. Left: in The GIMP using color levels to strip out everything but the black (learned from here). Center: taking the levels one into Inkscape and tracing the bitmap with the brightness cutoff threshold at 0.55. Right: again starting with the levels one, and having The GIMP define a path around the lines, then stroking them with a 1pt solid line, and filling.
I like the Inkscape trace the best. I’ll probably color this guy sometime…
I spent quite a few miles and hours on planes over the last two days for a speaking engagement, so I doodled to pass the time. An Assemblage of Avengers, a loose brush pen dragon, and a pondering robot.
Inktober Day 27. I really have no explanation for this doodle. Four days left! Meow.

Inktober day 11. This was my bulletin doodle for church today. The sermon was about mistakes, which may have subliminal taken me to parking violations? Having never lived in a metropolitan area with actual parking meters, I can’t say I know for sure why?
Day 4 of Inktober. I’ve completely given up on the quill pen now(probably more the ink bottle I have than anything…) and I’m sticking with my faithful Sakura pens, until some new ones I ordered come in. Don’t ever buy cars here…
This was my church doodle for this week. Our climate has been forgetting to water my plants for me for a couple of weeks, so I was wishing I had a huge ‘bot to do it for me. I wanted to do more Copic shading, but my lighter marker has completely dry/run out.
Posting has been a pretty lite lately, I’ve been working on a bunch of projects I can’t post. So in a few moments of interim I found, I doodled this guy. I hope to someday be able to draw sweet robots like Jake Parker, but the tiny details always escape me.
