Just Complicating Things

Posted 19 days ago

My FREEHAND Temporary Tattoos are extraordinary. But I do as well as I can when Clients ask for the READY-MADE Childrens' Tattoos instead. I'm good at putting them on. And I'm good with the Children.

But it's a waste of time and effort to Carry the Ready-Made Children's Tattoos In Addition to my More Upscale Options. Because nobody wants these things if they see they can get Freehand Temporary Tattoos Or Face Painting (on Arms too) Instead.

I like to accommodate my Clients' wishes. I like to give them the One Type of Party Art they prefer.

Really Researching

Posted 20 days ago

Bodies again. Client for next Saturday said she wants some kind of Body on the Caricatures. Even though it does take longer to draw Face AND Body than to draw just the Face. Feels like every time someone requests Bodies, I have to practice again.

Lol ~ I'm on a Path. My first idea was to simplify the body to be a Rectangle. I Googled 'Poses', and drew my simplified versions. Fresh Marker ~ I enjoyed throwing my lines. But this wouldn't be much help during the Party. I won't be Seeing dynamic poses while each Guest just sits in front of me. So then I decided to play around with One Simple Pose. And when I wanted that simple pose to 'Run', oh ~ I didn't like what came out. So that sent me back to the web. Surprising that a Runner like me would have to look up running poses for her Artwork, but that's what I did. One of the things I decided was that the leg that goes Forward is the one that's 'on the ground'. That works, but it's probably not the Only running pose. Now that I think about it, of course we can have dynamic poses in which the Runner is pushing off his straight Back leg which is on the ground too.

It's late now, so I'm going to sleep. Hoping to continue my Drawing Journey tomorrow.

Art is Action.

CPR Certification !

Posted 26 days ago

I did it! I got Certified in FirstAid/CPR/AED today. It was really intense.

Small Classroom. Teacher commanding our attention. I only had a simple ball-point pen with me.

I finally figured out how to approach my Caricature Drawings. My Simple Approach is Always the one that works best for me.

But I have several different Simple Approaches.

The Easiest Approach In the Moment is the one that results in the Best Caricature.

3D Baby

Posted 27 days ago

Playing my edge tonight. Lifelong continual development of my Drawing ability.

Getting out of my comfort zone. Doing things a little differently than I usually do.

I drew this Caricature based on a random photo of a very cute Baby. I spent a lot of time on it. This is the 3rd time I drew it. The first 2 had a lot of Predraw.

I like it. Keeps my skills sharp for when I get to a job.
