Scribble Artist

Posted 4 days ago

Oh my ~ Ever spend years pushing something aside, saying, oh, i could do that. If i wanted to. Well, tonight I checked it out. And yes, I could do it. But the experience wasn't what I expected.

Tonight I decided to draw completely differently than I usually do. The experience wasn't what I expected. I Enjoy going for the Exaggeration, and I feel constrained to make 'Face' aka Skin on Skull which always has nose between the eyes and mouth under that. I don't usually respect that. I figure you could just use a Camera if that's what you want. But there are Some Artists who can do it well. So there are times when I wish I could just swing into it if I'm drawing at an Event with another Artist who actually does the more realistic thing well enough that I actually do respect it.

Today I decided to tone down the exaggeration and stick to the real Face. And use a Scribbly style ~ more like the stuff from Yesteryear. Perhaps even channeling Daumier.

And that Face idea. I corraled myself to do that.

I thought the pencil at the Fresco app would be what i was looking for. But no. Didn't like it. Took a few more tries, and I settled on the Classic Comics Nib in Fresco. Jumped in. Scribbled around ~ oh. At first, I really wanted to trash the 'Face shape'. But I stuck with it, and I found that I could get into the Exaggerations while keeping within the constraints of Face.

And the experience, which started out feeling stifling, ended up feeling freeing. Because I DIDN'T HAVE TO HAVE THE ANSWERS AHEAD OF TIME. Scribbling around, I could just let them come out. And of course, using the IPad, I could try anything, and then just get rid of it if it wasn't a good idea.

Time Lapse Video of Billie Ellish

Nice. I still had the Time Lapse Video of Billie Ellish on my device. And now that I know how to share it.....

Click on this link:

So this is just the quick Time Lapse Video. People who hire me to do a Full Painting in Real Time would have seen it Live, as I painted it, over Several Hours. A chance to see a Real Artist at Work. To see how she interacts with the Artwork. To see the Process as it's happening

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan tonight. And I'm trying to see if I can share it as a Video. Yes. You can click on this Link to see how I made this Painting in fresco.

I also spent a lot of time with Zoom today. I figured out how I can Remotely handle Party Caricatures. Live Streaming directly from Procreate or Fresco. Of course, Live Streaming is much Slower than the Video that I posted here ~ after it was all done.

Quite cool. I can draw several Caricatures per Hour while Clients ~ who are isolated in their own homes ~ could have little Family Parties where they could see me creating their Party Caricatures in real time.

I loved it so much that I also realized that it would be real interesting for people to see their Studio Caricatures painted in real time. It takes me Many Hours to do them. Clients could see the whole process. They could either watch the whole thing, or else just keep in going on on their own Computers ~ so they could check back any time they feel like it to see how it's progressing.
