Everyone was so kind in their comments about the first collection, I put together another one.  I am creating these for myself anyway, so I thought I'd share them in case anyone was interested.  They are all transparent png files.  I have also drawn some "object" sketches in the same style (things as diverse as an island, paintbrush, pencil, light bulb, speech boxes, etc).  If they would be useful to anyone, I can try to post them as well.

Wow, this is great!  And so generous of you to share, thank you!  Not sure yet what project I can use them on, but looking forward to finding theright opportunity.

I would definitely be intersted in the object sketches you've done, too...

Randy,


Thanks for sharing these with everyone. Can I ask what program you used to create these....I am a veterinarian and I would love to attempt to draw some dog and cat figures and the style you have created would work perfect for an idea that I have....

 

Thanks for your help!

@Heidi - My pleasure. I'm glad you find them useful. 

 

@Bret - I kept it simple.  I used 53's "Paper" for iPad. Drew them with my stylus then emailed them to myself through the Paper interface. You can insert the picture in PowerPoint; get rid of the off-white background by setting the color to transparent; then crop it to trim the edges.  I have virtually no artistic talent whatsoever, but Paper makes my rough sketches tolerable.

I love the stick figures and use them when I need a friendly, non-didactic character to jump into a slide or scene and make a point for me.

Thanks Randy.  Sorry to be slow, but what program can we use to open the files?

Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

 

There are two batches of the stick figures in case anyone is interested.  I have some additional ones, but I didn't know whether anyone would find them to be of any use.  

 

Greg - the files are just PNG files, so they should work in any image viewer.  The collection, I believe. is in a standard "zip" file, so you just need a program (many are free) to unzip it and the files should appear in the opened folder.  

 

7_Zip is free.  Works fine.  You can find it here:  http://download.cnet.com/7-Zip/3000-2250_4-10045185.html

These are fabulous!  We've used a whiteboard template for a training course and are getting ready to do a chalkboard one.  I cannot wait to try these out!  Thanks!
