Signing Off

ADailyDoodle was a fun project that I learned a lot from the year+ that I did it. I would like to thank all of its followers, and fans for their support and appreciation for what I was doing. I will leave this blog as a small web memorial to my endeavor. Feel free to look back through the posts. Who knows, maybe someday I will re-visit this project and attempt another year, but as for now I have learned what I wanted and more from this project and am now focusing on other things. Thanks again! and may all your days be great! (even without a doodle to illustrate them!)

Old man on the Tramp

This old man waited 40 years to get his chance to freely enjoy the trampoline in his backyard...

Mr. Nose

Last Thursday with a bunch of co-workers to a sushi restaurant. I started doing some doodles on the paper-top table-cloth after we were done eating and one of my doodles sparked this character from a friend and coworker on the other side of the table. Scott thought one of my doodles looked like a nose standing on its nose hair- and he drew the character he saw (which is that sketch in the corner ) - I thought it was a rad character and snapped a picture with my cell phone to play around with later- and thus Mr. Nose was born. :)

Top Hat Lizard

Another random Photoshop doodle- basically I just really like the fluidity of the pressure brush! It is a lot of fun to draw with! Have a great Wednesday

Angry Squib Captains Head

I drew this up in Photoshop- at first it was just black but I decided the last few posts didnt have enough color so I added some to this. I did not really want to color it in, so I just colored the lines. A pretty rad Pirate head doodle is the result- have a good Tuesday!

Weird Creature Profile

I sat down to do a doodle and just started scribbling. This is what I ended up with... pretty ugly. I love to draw profiles and make up strange creatures. This one def. is not among the cutest I have ever drawn. He looks like a mix of a man, a frog, and a Pachycephalosaurus... (The head butting dinosaurs... I had to google it) I was not going to post it because he is so ugly but it is late and I have nothing else- so have a great Monday

Go Ninja II!

Pretty similar to yesterdays ninja- I thought they were both rad though so I decided to put em both on. I was dinking around in Photoshop with it a little too but just for a couple minutes with my mouse- Have a good Saturday!

Go Ninja!

Yikes! Is it January 14th already?!? Not long ago I talk about wanting to get with the program and start doing daily posts again and then I trip and fall on my stinking face! :) I had a stroke of bad-luck during the Holiday... I got Bronchitis and was a sick duck for practically the whole break. All of my plans of creating awesome arts and working on games was foiled and instead I just played games, coughed, and slept. I did not even get to finish my Christmas doodle! New Years Eve I was in bed for the night at 9:30... how lame am I? I obviously cant blame not doodling until now all on being sick though... I have something to admit to you all. I have an addiction. Being sick made it worse... no doubt- it also helped me realize how destructive this addiction can be! My addiction is Video Games! My name is Marcus Hadlock and I am a video-game-a-holic! There, I said it! my wife would say "I TOLD YOU SO!" and feel triumphant! I have finally realized after feeling like a lump on the bottom of a swamp looking at how UN-CREATIVE I have been the past couple of weeks... I let a lot of opportunities fade away... and probably lost some trust and confidence in some people who expected me to perform and I didn't. I realize this now and I am going to be better! Awesome even! I am not going to stop playing video games though... why would I? I am just going to limit myself! Be responsible and stuff...

Ok enough ranting... This post is a ninja I drew up on paper during a meeting. I doodle on paper all of the time- I bet I could easily post for missed days with just the doodles on one note-pad on my desk. Instead of trying to do that though, I will just make sure to stay motivated and be better moving forward. I hope all of those who once watched me and checked my blog from time to time haven't un-bookmarked and forgotten about me! I hope to win all of your trust back! The time of ADailyDoodle is here once again! The king has returned! (I recently re-watched "The Lion King" With my daughter...) Have a great Friday!

Chi-Fu the Running Backpacker

This started out as a bunch of random scribbles all over... I then started to doodle and connect the lines and this is what I ended up with. I wish I saved all of the scribble lines so you could all see what a chaotic mess it was that inspired this odd doodle :) I wasn't thinking! I used to do a lot of these creative practices in sketch books, make a scribble and then draw a face or something out of it. Have a good Wednesday

This is Tom- I dont know Tom but he requested I draw him as I have drawn other people in the past. He requested this a while ago actually... back in September... and I just got to it now! Sorry Tom! I hope you like it-

Little Bug

I drew this bug for Todays doodle... I drew it with the mouse and in about 2 minutes just to get something up for today :) Not very cute but he makes good lasagna!

Small Robot

A sloppy little speed-paint robot character- nothing special. About 15 minutes in Photoshop. Have a good Wednesday

Dreamy Doodle

Did you know there was a Breed of dog called a "Doodle"? Well there is, and it is a pretty adorable breed at that. My friend Barbara from requested I draw one of her doodles up. Here is the outcome- I hope you like it Barbara! Have a good Tuesday!

Wide Eyed Soldier

Not sure why I drew this- but I had to break out the old mouse-drawing skills for this one. I didnt feel like getting out the tablet :) Have a great Friday

Mr. Whack

This is Mr. Whack. I think he is into Meth... or maybe he is addicted to tootsie pops. Whatever it is, it is totally the cause of all his wackiness. Have a good Thursday

Monster Twins

Twins, yes. Identical, no. At least they both have the cute eye-spot.

I miss doing adailydoodle daily, and am going to attempt to start it back up again. I went over a year without missing a doodle and felt drained and stressed... probably because work has been nuts lately. Truth be told I have not been as creative and doing daily doodles really is gratifying.
