Breaking Free !

Posted 23 days ago

Tonight, I took some time off for my own Personal Drawing Time. I used a Photo from my previous post as a Reference ~ http://caricatureexpress.com/connecting

I drew freely. No predraw. No preplan. It felt aaaaahhh good.

I feel like I am breaking out of the Self-Imposed Prison that I create every once in a while with the intention of improving my Artwork. This is the real thing.

Trying to Make Sense out of HEX Codes

Posted 29 days ago

again, I don't know why I choose what I choose to Focus on each day. Because there was no reason for me to get back to making those ProCreate Palettes now ~ I have so much to do to prepare for This Week's Regular Caricature Gigs and This Week's Facepainting Gig. But that's what I did in my Drawing Time.

It will be Fantastic when I get to my Next Digital Caricature gig ~ Because my Palette will be perfectly custom made for Me.

I've been studying a lot. Learned a Lot about Hex Codes and the difference between the Colors of Light coming In (Hex Codes) and the Colors that are Reflected back (Oil Paint Colors), but it still feels hit-or-miss to come up with the Hex Codes that I want to use for my Palette. I couldn't just pick numbers/letters that were equidistant from each other ~ that didn't make patterns of Colors.

I even tried to make a traditional Color Wheel using FF0000 and 00FF00 and 0000FF, but that also didn't tell me anything. The Colors (and the mixtures) were all over the place. Neither Intensity Nor Values made any sense from it. Analagous Colors, Complimentary Colors, such a botch. Things happen with these Digital Colors like you mix two Dark Colors and you end up with an unrelated Chroma that's even a Light Color. Sometimes.

So it's still hit or miss as I make my own Perfect Palette. But it will be worth it when I get to my next Digital Gig because I will be able to Quickly Find the Colors that I need.

FOLLOW UP ON APRIL 4, 2018: I got it! I met with my Computer Guy today, and he taught me about Base 16 Numbers 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F. I'm happily doing Math now, and I figured out some Beautiful Palettes. So perfect.

Studying Eyes

Posted 31 days ago

I loved the CARICATURES that I drew here last night. But I did notice that most of the eyes were just hints. It worked in these pictures because that was what I saw. Many of the reference photos were reactions that these people had when I showed them their CARICATURES, and most people squint away their eyes when they Laugh. I wonder why that is. I guess it's something I'll have to think about when I have a chance to do so.

Anyway, I decided to focus on eyes tonight. So I enlarged the photos of a few of the eyes in some of my reference pictures, and I just drew the eyes. Linework like I would use in a Party Caricature, but no real exaggeration. It's Study-time again.

One of the interesting thing I picked up tonight was to see that Not All of the Eyes have a highlight. Another thing to think about. What causes one person's eyes to reflect highlights in the Same Setting where another person's eyes to not reflect highlights ~
