Lag

Posted Oct 2018

Took out my IPad this evening. I haven't used it in a couple of weeks.

Just playing around with some Thumbnail Sketches that I made last night. I continued with one of my Thumbnails to this Caricature's Linework on my IPad. It's good to be back! Event coming up This Week.

But I was troubled by lag today. The line appeared almost 1/2" away from my pencil-point. That never happened during an Event. It doesn't really affect anything except how the Artist feel ~ and that's Me!

Reminded me of the little surprises that come up when using the Digital Equipment. So I'm glad I took the time to warm up to the Activity while I still had time to trouble-shoot.

Alone in my Studio at the moment, I tried to figure out how to fix the lag. When I tried the 'streamline' feature, it made it quite a bit better. So satisfying. I feel accomplished.

Update: a New Product came out ~ Paperlike ~ to change the feel of drawing on the IPad. Just started scribbling IPad Colors on this Caricature Outline.

I like to draw with the Paperlike thingy. And I also like to draw directly on the IPad without the Paperlike thingy. But it can't easily come on and off. So I have to decided whether or not to keep it on my Main IPad (which is all set up the way I like it).

Never a dull moment

Digital Oil Painting Style

Posted Aug 2018

Once again, I forgot that I can't use my IPad like Oil Paints.

I felt like I would be able to use Colors and Transparencies and just one Brush to hone in on the picture. But that's Not how it works.

By the time I loosened up and started using it Only like the IPad that it is, I was getting tired of this activity for tonight.

I had a Great Time! And next time, I'll either go back to the Quicker Party Caricature Style that I worked so hard to develop. Or I'll try this semi-oil-painting style in a Monochrome.

The life of an Artist. The Quest never ends

Such Lovely Colors ~

Posted May 2018

I check Before Each Digital Caricature Event that All my Equipment is working. So I drew Digital Caricatures from Photos at previous posts on this website.

Success. Not a single glitch.

Party Training

Posted May 2018

Oh it felt Great to see how excited the Communion Girl was. Looked like she felt so important and happy with her Party. I can remember that sort of a feeling. Like pure Confidence.

But I felt like Some of the other children, especially the very little ones, were overwhelmed by Hours of Dark Flashing Lights and Loud Music. I got some Great Reactions when I showed them the finished CARICATURES, but it was hard to see. The dark lights kept changing colors. Quite an EX-PER-I-ENCE!

At least my Client ordered the DIGITAL CARICATURES. You can always see what's lit up on the Screen
