Digital Sketching, Frankenstein, and Killer Robots

Once upon a time, I was a diligent sketcher.  I love to draw but have found that the more I become teethered to my computer, the more I lose a little bit of the drive (or time) to have fun with sketches, or as I prefer to call them – doodles.  I still have a journal that is often more doodles than writing but it’s still a pale comparison to what I used to do on a regular basis.  With this in mind, I decided to make better use of my Wacom tablet (as opposed to just making designs for money… pshh…) and doodle.  A few days after Valentines day I spent at most 30 minutes doodling randomness on my tablet in Photoshop and then maybe another 10 adding some extra effects to a few items I thought were cool or funny.  Now you get to partake of the weirdness that is my mind.  Hooray!

The full size of both of these photos (you gotta click them) are both 1920 by 1200 which makes for a great desktop background, assuming your monitor is the same size as mine.

This first one was obviously in reaction to Valentines day from a few days prior to drawing this.

The coloring is not very clean because I just used one brush size and sped through the whole thing just to see what I could get.  Nothing was really planned when I made these.  It was basically “free-doodling”.  That sounds weird.  Moving on.

I drew this with *almost* never letting my tablet pen from leaving the proverbial paper.  Originally, he was supposed to be saying ‘Hahaha’ maniacally but when I decided this might make a cool desktop background, I decided to just flip him so that the icons on my screen wouldn’t cover him (I’m on a Mac).

If you’ve got some fun doodles, I would love for you share them.  Send me your links in the comments or via the contact page!
