September 23, 2023

I got a little busy the last few weeks and haven't had time to do much doodling, so I felt I should do something quick-ish. For fun (?) I used Krita on Linux with my Wacom pad (Photoshop under a Windows VM has been acting odd, with the pressure sensitivity on the Wacom not quite working (though it does in Illustrator).

After not having much of an idea what to draw, I decided to draw a face. And then a body. And he had to say SOMETHING, so "poop" just kind of seemed natural and appropriate, given the effort I was putting into it. The flood fill doesn't work great if I use fancy brushes that don't have 100% opacity (like you get when using a touch sensitive tablet).

Some of the digital pencil-sketch version is visible on the edges of things like the arms and pants, though most is covered by the flood-fill color. I don't care and it gives a sort of drop-shadow to the speech balloon. In recent years I've been using Illustrator's Live Color mode to deal with colors, so I haven't used flood fill in a while.

Anyway, it's OK, it's primitive, and it's good enough, even if it's not quite good. The full size image is here. And yes, for those who are counting (which is pretty much only me) this is number 500.

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.
