Otto Butterfingers

27 Oct

This is Otto Butterfingers.

Otto Butterfinger

And this is his car.

Otto Butterfingers' car

It drives on the painted heads of some of the unfortunate people he happened to cross his path with.

“Sorry!” says Otto, after he clumsily bumps into another poor soul. Their tortured faces are burnt in his mind. That those same faces are painted on the wheels of his car does not particularly help him to forget them.

The car has two different number plates. On the front it states: “TAKE-CA-RE” and on the back: “SO-RRY”. The plates are custom-made. Otto had them removed several times when ordered to do so by the highway patrol officer. That is the only reason why the faces change over time. The repair man in the garage is an artist, you know, and he paints the sides of wheels.

Yes, Otto has had his fair share of bad luck in his life and doesn’t seem to mind so much anymore to share his misfortune with others.

Only Otto wonders why it is the painterly auto repair man knows what Otto’s victims look like? Or maybe it’s just Otto’s imagination. The idea that his misfortune was elaborately staged by the artist as an excuse to paint the sides of his car’s wheels seemed preposterous. Who would do such a thing? No, Otto was just someone who attracts ill fate.

That is all.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 22

27 Oct

Bob is not happy with that new intern at Footle, who obviously likes to go to the zoo.

Beardus Maximus fan art, day 22

As an experiment, I decided to let the structure of the copy paper shine through the image. I think it gives an interesting look to the background. I also did some fiddling around in GIMP to make the pencil markings look like ink.

This fan art was made to support the comic book Rebootus Maximus, and to save a beard. Want to know what that beard saving is all about? Read Beardus Maximus on the PC Weenies blog.

That is all.

Pink rhinoceros

Seeing pink elephants I know has what meaning, but was does seeing pink rhinos mean?

Sloppy drawing

27 Oct

I started sketching and sketching with a pencil and this form popped up. It wasn’t planned. Just some sloppy drawing. Afterwards I’ve inked, scanned and cleaned it up a bit. Next I colored it in GIMP.

Sloppy drawing

Not very anatomically correct, but a lot of fun to do.

That is all.
