I haven’t posted here in ages, as I’ve been focussing on other hobbies. I’m sure I’d really enjoy adult colouring books (I’m very good at staying in the lines…) but I couldn’t bring myself to buy one, so I made my own. These are what popped out.
Done with fineliners and Lyra / Tombow brush pens.
I’m going to build some speakers. Specifically subs. I wanted to build a massive dub reggae soundsystem.
I started a bit smaller. With thick grey card. And a 4″ driver from a set of little speakers found by the side of the road.
I found the plans on the internet. As you do. So I bodged this together to see what the craic is.
I’ve got wood (fnar), and just ordered a proper 6.5″ high excursion woofer from a german website (its not easy to source these things, it turns out). Your guess is as good as mine whether it’ll ever get here.
If all goes well, I’ll just need a professional carpentry workshop and someone to teach me joinery…
…and knackers your brushes. Which is not entirely unexpected. So don’t use good brushes. I took my own advice.
I finished the inking last night (this morning… *yawn). Showed it to my daugther this morning (the world’s harshest critic, after my wife). Her favourite was Gerry Shark, but apparently she loved the rest too. Bless. She also dropped the bomb that she (*eyelash flutter…) wants to help me paint it. Eep. Erm, OK.
I figured that I can get her to drip some paint on to the background for the sea and stuff. As long as I mask out the main characters which I’ll paint later, it should be alright… right?
Masking fluid is weird stuff. I’m sure there must be some sort of proper way to paint it only a google away. But, Sunday.
