Ties Go to the Offense

November 18, 2013

I played indoor ultimate frisbee on Friday night. I almost made a decent defensive play. In reality, my hand touched the frisbee, as it sailed over my head in the endzone, but I didn't actually grab it. However, the visual image of me hanging from it, Daffy Duck style, is funnier than just a near-miss tip.

Once again, another all photoshop image. The astroturf was from a grass texture, and I tried to put in some background, just so it wouldn't be visually barren. I also added shading to the coloring and played with some zig-zaggy tails on the speech balloons. I added the color because I wasn't terribly happy with the basic lines. Felt like it would still be a bit too hard to figure out what's going on without the color cues. Took a few hours to generate.

Oh, and in ultimate frisbee, ties (like if both offense and defense catch the frisbee at the same time) do go to the offense. So even if I had caught it, it wouldn't have mattered.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
