Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| 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.
