Using a thinner marker than usual ~ I hope I don't use it up before I go to draw the Caricatures at the Party

Draw'm as if they were a-Nake-it

Posted 28 days ago

Oh hahaha ~ I just got in from the Event where my Client wanted me to draw people as though they were Mermaids and Mermen. And as expected, I didn't get tiiime with each person so I could make elaborate scenes. It's usually all I can do to draw their Faces in the amount of time that a Guest would be staying with the Artist. So I had to cut back on details and just draw real fast to include the Body/hobby in addition to the Face. And ahahaha!

Hahahahaha. Apparently I was walking around the Bar surprising people with pictures of themselves which hinted at them to be undressed. Because my Client hired me to draw them as Mermaids and Mermen ~ on the spot ~ and those Mermen don't wear shirts ~ and by the time I got up to their bottoms, I barely had time to throw in a Tail. What a Funny night I had ~ and I didn't even know it until I got home and looked over the pictures that I had quickly drawn and given out.

A good time was had by all

Self Assurance

Posted Mar 2019

This Party was a pleasant Surprise. For me. Comfortable, Self-assured Children (mostly 12-year-old Girls) ~ who actually weren't afraid to have Fun. This is what Childhood should be. I feel like I can't say enough about it. I was drawing Caricatures at this Party of Wonderful, UNINHIBITED Children having simple healthy fun. Confident enough to be able to laugh at themselves.

Of course we know that all these Children are Beautiful. How can you be anything But beautiful at this age? And I was able to see their inner beautify shine though also. A Community Spirit of Love, Joy, Acceptance, and Accepted.

How to Find out What's Needed

Posted Mar 2019

I'm not sure of what to forecast for an Upcoming Party. But what I am sure of is that there will be some Teenage Boys there. So I decided to draw some teenage boys. I used random photos that I found online for reference.

Can you imagine my surprise when I saw how awkwardly they came out? Ick:

Good thing that I practiced first at home so I caught that. So now I remembered to Look at what I'm Drawing while drawing it. And to draw the Face before considering whether or not I want to include other things:

I'm not expecting many people at this Small Party. So I want to feel ready to swing into Body/Hobby ~ just in case. I discovered that different things work on different days. Tonight I did not like going Near the old fashioned bighead/littlebodies. I did much better to just draw the Face, and Then add in whatever part of a body/hobby fits in the space that is left over.

Note: I sure don't shy away from the difficult ones ~ I don't look for Reference pictures of people who have something easy to Caricature. It keeps me comfortable to handle any person who shows up at the Party:
