Hot Cocoa

Mr. Stabbity, the migraine guy, and his entourage are fans of hot cocoa. Shivers doesn't want to go back up the ladder. The sleepy one, who seems to have the name "Meh", has discovered that marshmallows make comfy pillows.

Santa Grumbles

I'm guessing he brings pieces of coal shaped like burnt pieces of cake. Or maybe they are just really badly burnt cakes.

A slightly modified quote from Rachel who went on to explain that the cans contained snakes with angry eyebrows attached, ranging from toy snakes to real snakes.

Run, turkey. Run!

I'm not sure it's clear that head is rotated all the way back.

Fall Rain

I like the trees.

I decided that I didn't like the stick figure. So I redid the person. I think it fits in better.

I'm aware that there isn't actually rain in the image.

Waiting on Fall Colors

The colors haven't changed yet here. I'm impatient.

In which I have a lot of fun with the blend tool.

Haiku 168: York

PGPR is polyglycerol polyricinoleate, a replacement for cocoa butter. Some sources claim ingesting too much can lead to a "fatty liver", but there doesn't seem to be solid evidence of it. It's fine to eat as long as you don't eat too much.

Mr. Stabbity Isn't a Nice Guy

This is Mr. Stabbity trying to give someone a migraine. Mr. Stabbity isn't a nice guy.

I can do Mr. Stabbity without a sketch, but I think I need one for the person. Or trying to make a stick figure look like it is running is just difficult. One of these things. Perhaps both. Most likely one.

Haiku 167: Salsa

Mild salsa, not medium nor hot.

Saturday, September 26, 2015

I drew a picture of Rachel

Rachel has a coffee pot for a head. Because this is normal behavior.

It was actually inspired by a conversation followed by this picture in Google Hangouts.

Update with eyes. This is the result of some feedback that I didn't 100% follow.

Learning GIMP: Haiku 156

I think this may be the last haiku I redraw. The word for this one was "booby trap".

And the new version.

(I have this curly hair thing down now.)

Learning GIMP: Haiku 151 - always

Picked a random haiku to redraw today. Perhaps I will create new ones starting next week. It's fun to see them with color.

Here is the original.

Here is the redrawn version. Definitely an improvement on the curly hairs.

Learning GIMP: Haiku 158 - kite

Today's adventure was to redo one of my little haiku comics that I made nearly two years ago. Here is the original.

And here is the pretty GIMP version. Curly hair is still hard, but I think I'm slowly getting better.

I wish a font existed that matched my handwriting. This isn't too bad.

Learning GIMP: Mr. Stabbity the Migraine Guy

Today's playing in GIMP is brought to you by Rachel's suggestion. It's Mr. Stabbity the Migraine Guy. He is what causes migraines. He is a jerk. Here is a sketch of him.

Here he is all colorized and stuff.


Added bonus... Halloween stick figure update!

The original

The GIMP version.

Curly hair is difficult, but this was much better than my first attempt a few days ago. (The attempt that you don't get see.)
