Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

When a Gnome Meets a Wizard

A gnome meets a wizard. The rest is history. (History repeats itself at 135 beats per minute.)

An old one from April 2006… again, drawn in Microsoft Paint. Oh, how I love Microsoft Paint. I don’t remember why I drew this one. I think I was just amused by the idea.

    I didn’t draw that many to begin with. I guess it’s time to draw new ones. :-)

    Bwahaha! That’s so funny Kelvin. I totally blurted out laughing. Metronome *shakes head* — so clever. Musicians will love this one.

    I cant imagine how you did this on Microsoft Paint. I tried many time to draw in this but it is very unyielding. :-)

    Melissa, this is the advantage of being a non-native speaker of English. Sometimes words are snapped in half in my mind when it’s not supposed to, and hilarity ensues. 😀

    Walter, here are the tricks:
    1. Use the brush tool, and never the pencil. The pencil produces a thin line and this usually doesn’t look good because it’s hard to draw smooth lines. Brush tool, on the other hand, makes things look more smooth.
    2. Always zoom in before you draw. Imagine drawing a complicated diagram on a piece of post-it and on poster paper. Which one is easier? It’s the same when it comes to drawing on a computer. When you zoom in, the pixels become bigger. So the same amount of wrist movement translates to fewer pixels. This gives you more fine control.
    3. And of course, practice! (This only works when you are someone that has nothing better to do though. 😉 )

    Love it! And especially the insight from your comment above that being a non-native English speaker influences how you twist words in your head!
