I got a Targus stylus at Best Buy last night. I’d been wanting to get one because drawing is impossible with your finger. Not only does your hand block 3/4ths of the screen, you finger drags on the surface. So with my new stylus, here’s what I came up with. Even after SketchBook crashed once and I had to almost start completely over.
This Buzz says, “This isn’t falling with style… this is flying.”
What would the cave man have painted if he had met Buzz Lightyear? Probably something like this.
This Buzz says, “I’ve set my laser from stun, to kill.”
“Love the show [Broke Ya!], I’ve been a listener forever. I heard you mention possible submissions for your Buzz Lightyear site and wanted to throw one your way.”

This Buzz says, “I don’t like the way they portrayed me in those cartoons!”
I made this Buzz on my iPad using the Fun Felt app. The app isn’t perfect… it’s very hard to shrink the shapes smaller than the default. Took me forever to get the eyes right.
This Buzz says, “I just want you to know that even though you tried to render me in felt, revenge is not an idea we promote on my planet.”
If Buzz had been around in 1989 chances are he would have had his very own Sega Genesis game. This is what I figured he might have looked like. Image enlarged to show texture.
This Buzz says, “Star Command! There seems to be a strange blue spike-haired vermin on the loose!”
Is Buzz’s laser real… or just a little light? Depends on who you ask. One of my favorite parts of Toy Story 2 was seeing (what I thought was) real Buzz in action. That laser of his was awesome. Even in TS1 I loved the way he kept that beam trained on Woody’s forehead while he worked his way around him.
This Buzz says, “See that melting plastic, Zurg? That’s my laser.”
Today’s Buzz has given up and let himself go. I have no problem with heavy people… being one myself… but there’s a difference between a guy who’s heavy and a fat dude. Sweatpants being that difference.
This Buzz says, “To infinity, and your mom!”
This little guy was originally created in 2002 modeled after game characters from the GameBoy Color. I updated a pixel here and there and he now has a home as this site’s favicon up in the address bar.
There isn’t a lot to work with pixel-wise when you’re looking to pay tribute to an 8-bit classic like Mario. I started with a 16×20 pixel canvas and recreated Mario himself. Then I overlaid the new pixels attempting to keep to the original shape as much as possible. A majority of the changes are (naturally) in the face since Buzz doesn’t have quite the nose that Mario does.
This Buzz says, “It’s-a me! Buzz-a Lightyear! Let’s-a go!”
Inspired by our first reader submitted Buzz tribute comes to us from Henry Reyes. Thanks Henry!
