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.

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.)

Learning GIMP: Grumbles Day 2

Today's GIMP adventure was to trace over this version of Grumbles. This is also how Grumbles got his name.


I chose new colors, which I like much better.

I liked the colors so much I redid the Grumbles from yesterday. I also adjusted his eyebrows to make him look more angry and less like he is slightly concerned about something.


That is the last Grumbles doodle I have. So if I want to create more of him, I will have to sketch him out first.

Learning GIMP: Grumbles

Grumbles is an angry guy that I doodled during a meeting sometime in the past year. This is Grumbles in pencil sketched form.


Here is Grumbles after I figured out how to do line-art in GIMP.

And here is Grumbles with some coloring. I'm not in love in the brown. (Although I do like it better than the purple version...). And there are some other details I don't like (such as the edges of his mouth), but I think it's pretty good for my first time actually using Gimp.
