I'm Amazed

Posted Dec 2012

Drawing in the Dark. Even though I brought my own lights, my client wouldn't let me set up where I could plug them in.

IPad!

Posted Dec 2012

I got an IPad ~ Hmmmm, maybe I'll get in to Digital Party Caricatures. I like the Poster-Type look of Paint-Bucketing.

So first, well 2nd after getting the thing. The second thing I'll have to do is figure out how to draw on it. I got the ArtStudio app and a few styluses..... I'll play around with it while watching tv:

The first picture is #Chumly, a character on the show #PawnStars. Didn't know what I was doing with these new supplies. I drew the whole thing on one layer.

Gotta get more facile with this IPad thingy. Started checking out things like Layers and Gradient Tool. Didn't care anymore about who I was drawing, and I came up with the second picture. Looks nice and clean.

So I felt like I was ready to be really good. And I drew the third picture. Also, not time yet to make it actually look like someone. I'm just trying to get acquainted with the IPad. Maybe I'm trying too hard here. The third picture too busy?

My studies must be continued. Before I'm ready to take this show on the road!

Fancy Speed Drawing

Posted Dec 2012

We went for Speed at this Party. Because I couldn't give my client as much time as she wanted. She called after I was already booked for later party.

Here are a few pictures that came out. How would you look if you were a Cartoon?

I feel like the fancy mats helped to Upscale the drawings:

Sunny Days

Posted Dec 2012

Oh this made me laugh. I was looking to take a break from the cold NY weather, so I decided to check out some pictures I had drawn back while it was still warm. And I ended up not only remembering how uncomfortable it can be on a hot summer day, but I also got a break from the serious mood I've been in.

This Party was outdoors on a very hot day. I always prefer to be in the thick of things ~ right where the Party is. But I didn't complain when my hostess suggested that I draw in the air-conditioned kitchen. That heat can be tuff.

Not being Part of the Party, though, I felt constantly on edge. Like I was supposed to personally Meet each person I drew. Felt awkward. Made my drawings stiff. And then, because my drawings weren't flowing easily, I felt nervous. Lol ~ Now I laugh to see what came out.

Art is an Art. An Artist is affected by her Zone. My best Zone is when I'm in the thick of things at a Party.
