Bird, Bo, Bart and Bert doodles

Birds fly, though some don’t, except when they use balloons, lots of them.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 2

9 Oct

This fan art was made for one purpose only: to save Krishna’s beard. Read this blog post on PCWeenies for more explanation.

Beardusmaximus fan art, day 2

I hope the day Krishna can shave off his beard is pushed forward as far as possible. Until that time, I will draw something with a beard every day.

Today’s subject was a bearded mussel, in case you hadn’t noticed.

That is all.

Crafty dog

Crafty dog

For this dog-like shape I needed a paper cup, a balloon, some carton, 2 sheets of A3 printing paper, glue, paper glue, white acrylic paint. Tools used were a brush and a pair of scissors.

And of course some imagination to put it together. Loads of fun guaranteed.

That is all.

Tested my skilz

I wanted to check out the program ForeverSave Lite for the Mac. So I added Pixelmator to its list of programs. ForeverSave Lite add an auto-save function to your program, so you’ll never lose a file again (at least, that is what they claim).

Tested my skilz

After I had drawn the wolf and duplicated a leaf in the background, I saved it as a PNG file, which I uploaded to Flickr.

The utility (which is free) seems to do what it is supposed to do. I had set it to an update every minute and/or when I switch to another application. Because I had saved the file to my desktop, I could see the image changing every minute while I was drawing.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work with the X11 framework, so no auto-save for Mac programs that use X11 (GIMP, Inkscape, etc.).

That is all.
