Corner of Desk

Corner of Desk

Here you can see the one corner of my desk. The corner of the PS2, an old power strip, an alarm clock in the shape of a computer monitor and my laptop in the foreground. Very cool that the tablet is pressure-sensitive, allowing me to create sketchy lines much like I would on paper.

Bamboo Doodle!

My first doodle on my Wacom Bamboo!

Obviously I haven’t been very diligent about sketching every day. Life is busy, isn’t it? But now I really have no excuse – I got a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch for Christmas so it’s near-effortless to doodle on my computer now. I’ll be trying to make these more regular; if I’m honest, I probably won’t get to this more than once a week, but then when I get to drawing I just want to keep going and I sketch a few pictures at once!

I’m going to take some time to get comfortable with the tablet, and then I think I will start experimenting with color, which is something I’ve never been very good at.

Dream Mall

I had a long and detailed dream, and at one point in my dream I stood in front of a large, brick mall with a Mexican restaurant just inside. This is about what the facade looked like.

There’s one detail image on Flickr, or you can view and download the model at the 3D Warehouse.

Bench 1

Here’s another object in the watercolor-style of the lamppost. Today I tried making a park bench. It looks like the edges didn’t fully render when I exported the image… oh well.

As usual, you can see the back of the bench on Flickr, or view and download the model at the 3D Warehouse.

Lamppost 1

How about some color? This is my first attempt at texturing a model in SketchUp, and I found that the Watercolor setting made it come through nicely. A stylized lamppost/street sign on the corner of first and main:
