IPad Versatility

Posted 14 days ago

Here are just a couple of the Digital Caricatures that I drew at a recent Event. It's just great how I can resize and erase and use different brushes and oh there's just so much flexibility in drawing on an IPad.

Procreate Color Theory

Posted 21 days ago

Oh. Frustrated. A long time ago, I thought that the IPad was going to work like Oil Paints ~ I was sooo good at easily mixing Any Color with Oil Paints. Of course, I gave up That idea.

Then a couple of days ago, I unexpectedly happened upon a YouTube that so simplified Digital Color Mixing. There were lots of them. My dream was Rekindled.

Hanging out at Whole Foods today, messing around in Procreate, I felt excited to have a chance to try it out. But IT DID NOT WORK AT ALL FOR ME. Here's one of the YouTubes that describes it. Usually as Magenta, Cyan, and Yellow. Sometimes as Red, Blue, Green. Depending on whether you're in an Additive Or Subtractive Mode.

Oh My Goodness! Then I got it to work. In PhotoShop. Didn't even have to make Transparencies. The Colors just Change when I Overlapped them. But who draws with their big mouses in PhotoShop?? I still have to find out how to make it work in Procreate, and then I'll have to figure out how to Understand it ~ as clearly as I already understand how to mix All Colors with Oil Paints. To be able to Directly Mix Primary Colors to organically create Any Color at all.

On my way ~ ~ ~

I Love New York

Posted 23 days ago

Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew at yesterday's Digital Caricature Event. I was in a Penthouse "Club", and it started getting pretty dark near the end of the Event. Didn't bother the Drawing Surface at all. The IPad stays lit up!

......even though it did get difficult to see the person i was drawing. Glad I carried along a decent light ~ even though I had to carry it with me all day in Manhattan. (I did Temporary Glitter Tattoos at a Daytime Event before this Digital Caricature Event)

I love New York

Procreate Painting

Posted 30 days ago

My current Studio project is creating a singing alien Crooner for a the Art on a cd album for a Friend. Not at all finished, but this is what I did so far.

I particularly like how I made the alien shiny Gold. I feel like this job is bringing me a step towards that dream I had of painting in Procreate as though it was Oil Paints. By encompassing just a 'Thing' instead of trying to make a full Painting, it finally got me using the Procreate Tools in a more Painterly fashion.

I'm feeling like this might be My way to go for my subsequent Procreate paintings. To just outline each 'Thing' and deal with it individually. I'm even feeling like I might want to just make everything Shiny. Just because I'm liking to do this right now.

It's a look. It can be my style ~ for a while ~ since that's what I'm interested in. Might be.
