This is the Caricature I drew tonight. I made a small attempt to drawing it on Paper with Marker, but quickly realized how much easier it would be to use the IPad so I could resize everything as I was working. I haven't used the IPad in a while.
So oh ~ wouldn't you know it. The first thing I did was to draw out the whole thing on an Opaque layer. I figured that out when I tried to add in some Colors. So I made a Transparent Layer on top, and I had to trace over all my lines.
Then.... happily Coloring away..... the bottom of my palm touched and slid down on the IPad. Aaaghk! The whole thing disappeared. I was not expecting That. I don't know how what happened. I could only find it in the Gallery at a Much earlier point. Finally, with acceptance, I tapped on that earlier rendition, and Up popped the full Caricature to this point that I had drawn to.
I'm really too busy to be drawing Caricatures tonight. I really wanted to revamp my whole Facepainting Set Up before #The Fourth of July, put away several week's worth of Event folders from previous Events, and prepare for both Parties that are already booked for this week. I planned on doing an Exaggerated Caricature real fast.
The first thing that happened was that it felt hard to size the drawing on the paper ~ because I wanted to enlarge Both the beard And the teeth. Ahah! That's when I had taken out my IPad. I love my IPad. So that's all I did. Didn't even finish the Caricature. But I do like it. and it's now 2:30am.
I didn't finish this Caricature which I was making just for fun. I have a lot of Artwork to do ~ Now ~ all due in just a couple of days. This was me taking a break to just draw a Quick Exaggeration with no pressure ~ feeling loose ~ in the groove ~
This is all I got done. I don't know if I'll get a chance to get back in to it
