Studying is for Students

Posted Aug 2019

Getting ready for drawing Caricatures at tomorrow's Party. It will be a Big Wedding. For practice, I used a reference photo from a previous Event where I was drawing Caricatures. Not that there was anything wrong with the one I had drawn That day, but I have to get into it again before each Event.

My first pass was so stiff ~ I feel like studying makes us like students. aka beginners. So I went back to my regular approach ~ and i feel like my recent studies will just make me feeeeeel more comfortable when im doing hair and eyes and stuff.

I feel glad to be home

Posted Aug 2019

Difficult Party, but I could do it. It was fun for the Guests. My Client felt great. It just wasn't fun for me the Artist. Not only was I 'happily' drawing in the Dark, but I was also told to Set Up off to the side where I'm not 'on stage' so to say. So I ended up with people straggling over like one at a time etc.

I'll just post a few of the Caricatures that I drew. Then I'm going to take a snack ~ even though I got home too late for 'the midnight snack'.

Oh ~ at least I do feel happy with the Caricatures that I drew. And I was spending my time with some very nice people. At a party. An Anniversary Party.

Simplifying Hair

Posted Aug 2019

Time to get serious again. Enough playing around with my equipment. I have regular Caricature Parties and Events coming up in just a couple of days.

Tonight I chose to focus on Hair. I went on-line, chose random reference photos, and drew just the hair. I did it all WithOut a predraw ~ except for the men's facial hair.

Funny how I felt comfortable and happy with what I was doing ~ until I got to Men's Facial Hair. Then I had to work things out and do some predraws. I wonder if that's because I'm a woman ~ I don't shave. So I don't automatically review how facial hair grows every day.

Matthew Perry Digitally Colored

Posted Aug 2019

Tonight I brought my August 25th Caricature of Matthew Perry into Procreate. Just scribbling around with Colors.

I Enjoyed it. But I did feel disappointed as I finished because I realized that I didn't actually Use the Special Features of the Digital Equipment that makes the Digital Equipment so Fantastic ~ things like those Special Brushes ~ yes ~ that the main thing that I missed.

Still, it was good for me. Many experiences.

Now I feel like I should make some Dull Color Palettes in Procreate too. It's a way.

Probably just until I figure out how to use RGB or CMYK in Procreate.
