Thrilled

Posted Oct 2018

This woman came up to me at least Five Times during the Event to tell me how Thrilled she was with the Caricature I drew.

It felt great to know that she felt blown away by it.

Lag

Posted Oct 2018

Took out my IPad this evening. I haven't used it in a couple of weeks.

Just playing around with some Thumbnail Sketches that I made last night. I continued with one of my Thumbnails to this Caricature's Linework on my IPad. It's good to be back! Event coming up This Week.

But I was troubled by lag today. The line appeared almost 1/2" away from my pencil-point. That never happened during an Event. It doesn't really affect anything except how the Artist feel ~ and that's Me!

Reminded me of the little surprises that come up when using the Digital Equipment. So I'm glad I took the time to warm up to the Activity while I still had time to trouble-shoot.

Alone in my Studio at the moment, I tried to figure out how to fix the lag. When I tried the 'streamline' feature, it made it quite a bit better. So satisfying. I feel accomplished.

Update: a New Product came out ~ Paperlike ~ to change the feel of drawing on the IPad. Just started scribbling IPad Colors on this Caricature Outline.

I like to draw with the Paperlike thingy. And I also like to draw directly on the IPad without the Paperlike thingy. But it can't easily come on and off. So I have to decided whether or not to keep it on my Main IPad (which is all set up the way I like it).

Never a dull moment

Line Quality

Posted Oct 2018

Playing Scrabble. Waiting for my friend to put down a word already. I'm doodling.

Funny to think that the first picture here ~ the one with the rougher lines ~ might actually be more useful as my practice. Because I've been drawing graceful lines ever since I was a little girl pirouetting. It feels very natural for me to draw like that. But the chunkier lines? I've only been using then for about 10 years now. By practicing them, I'm more likely to switch to this type of Line when I'm drawing Caricatures.

That's why I like to draw in a Real Party situation. No time to think. No time to control very much of what I draw. Yet I feel thrilled about feeling confident. By practicing now, my hand automatically does it when it's needed at an Event.
