Getting Ready for the Communion

Posted Mar 2019

Using a thinner marker than usual ~ I hope I don't use it up before I go to draw the Caricatures at the Party

Thin Marker

Posted Mar 2019

Oh my goodness. Overwhelmed by an overAll sense of Loneliness tonight. I had planned on taking out thinner markers to draw Communion Girls in respect of my next scheduled Event, but I ended up watching a YouTube about Loneliness. So the first one I drew was the You Tube guy I was watching.

He really was that rectangular. But I don't like the busyness of the thinner marker. On him.

Then I felt ready to draw another. For Reference, I used a Girl who was holding an old Fashion Sketch that I drew at a Store Event several years ago. Just felt like keeping my marker moving. To see what happens when I use a smaller marker than usual. Because I wondered if the finer marker might be... well... finer ~ for the little girls that I would be seeing at a Communion this weekend.

In the first Caricature that I drew, I purposely Chose to ignore a 'rule' that a friend taught me many years ago ~ that no matter what I see, don't draw little children with big chins. Not too bad, well, maybe. If I was using my Regular Marker ~ but ick this picture looked stiff.

Tried it again ~ smaller chin ~ but something is off.

Two more useless Starts. I gotta stop trying so hard.

Yes ~ then I finally loved the last picture I drew here (the one with the Brown shading). A+

I used the thinner marker. I drew a little Body/Hobby with this picture ~ which is not needed for my upcoming Event (Yay). Wondering if I would feel pleased with the Caricature without the Body/Hobby. Because the thinner marker ~ finer being good for her fine features ~ doesn't have the pizzazz that I like for my pictures.

What am I doing? Drawing Girls? Or Drawing Pictures?

What I'll Want at the Communion

Posted Mar 2019

Okay. After 3am already, and I hadn't drawn a thing all day yet. I'll just do a Quick one ~ I should go to sleep already.

I Googled Communion Girls since my next booked Event will be a Communion, grabbed an old marker here in my Studio, and drew this Caricature.

What I learned is Make Sure to Have Fresh Pointy Markers at the Party!

Draw'm as if they were a-Nake-it

Posted Mar 2019

Oh hahaha ~ I just got in from the Event where my Client wanted me to draw people as though they were Mermaids and Mermen. And as expected, I didn't get tiiime with each person so I could make elaborate scenes. It's usually all I can do to draw their Faces in the amount of time that a Guest would be staying with the Artist. So I had to cut back on details and just draw real fast to include the Body/hobby in addition to the Face. And ahahaha!

Hahahahaha. Apparently I was walking around the Bar surprising people with pictures of themselves which hinted at them to be undressed. Because my Client hired me to draw them as Mermaids and Mermen ~ on the spot ~ and those Mermen don't wear shirts ~ and by the time I got up to their bottoms, I barely had time to throw in a Tail. What a Funny night I had ~ and I didn't even know it until I got home and looked over the pictures that I had quickly drawn and given out.

A good time was had by all
