I made the other day for some reason?

I was using the vector program Inkscape the other day.

I was going to create an image for something else originally. I have a song single coming out and it needed some cover art. 

So I fired up the program but when I first opened it I had my Wacom tablet hooked up and just started sketching something to warm up.

For some reason I just sketched a boy waving "howdy" and dressed kinda like a cowboy on a ranch. I don't know why?

I thought, "That's weird?" But then I was like, whatever and kept going. 

So I outlined the drawing in vector shapes and filled them in with colors and stuff. 

Then I had this.

And then I kept going. I gave it a green background and put some cloud lines in the sky. I roughed up the edges of the clouds with the object sculpting tool. That tool randomizes the edges of the vector shapes.

But then I just started goofing around and thought I'd give it a horse head. You know... for the kids! 

Again I don't know why 😄

So I drew a big vector shape on the side of its head and moved the mouth to the end and put ears on it.

Thought of a silly name to call it and there you go! Horsey Headface.

Making a book of my webcomic - Artwork/Book sizes & Printing - Part 2

This is the second video in a series about how I make books of my webcomics In the previous video , I gave some background about how I started my webcomic, how I add the images to my book with the help of Google Photos and Google docs. You can check out part 1 here -  https://www.tomrayswebsite.com/2022/01/making-book-of-my-webcomic-how-i-add.html In this video, I wanted to talk more about how my webcomic transformed from something I was just posting on my website to a thing that I could find multiple uses for. Now when I drew the comic I knew it was going to be something I would publish as a book, put on multiple media sites that people use, and sell at shows and pop-ups if I wanted to. Now each webcomic is being turned into several things. ( You can check out my Amazon books here - https://amzn.to/3qzSNdL ) How did I choose a size for my book? Since I started making these the 3 books I published of my webcomics have all been different sizes. When I was just posting it on my website

eBay books.

I just thought that was interesting. Curious to see if they sell for that much.

Music stand.

I mean I waited 20 minutes so it's fair game right?

Rotating chair.

It's like I forgot how they work.
