Scribble Artist

Posted 4 days ago

Oh my ~ Ever spend years pushing something aside, saying, oh, i could do that. If i wanted to. Well, tonight I checked it out. And yes, I could do it. But the experience wasn't what I expected.

Tonight I decided to draw completely differently than I usually do. The experience wasn't what I expected. I Enjoy going for the Exaggeration, and I feel constrained to make 'Face' aka Skin on Skull which always has nose between the eyes and mouth under that. I don't usually respect that. I figure you could just use a Camera if that's what you want. But there are Some Artists who can do it well. So there are times when I wish I could just swing into it if I'm drawing at an Event with another Artist who actually does the more realistic thing well enough that I actually do respect it.

Today I decided to tone down the exaggeration and stick to the real Face. And use a Scribbly style ~ more like the stuff from Yesteryear. Perhaps even channeling Daumier.

And that Face idea. I corraled myself to do that.

I thought the pencil at the Fresco app would be what i was looking for. But no. Didn't like it. Took a few more tries, and I settled on the Classic Comics Nib in Fresco. Jumped in. Scribbled around ~ oh. At first, I really wanted to trash the 'Face shape'. But I stuck with it, and I found that I could get into the Exaggerations while keeping within the constraints of Face.

And the experience, which started out feeling stifling, ended up feeling freeing. Because I DIDN'T HAVE TO HAVE THE ANSWERS AHEAD OF TIME. Scribbling around, I could just let them come out. And of course, using the IPad, I could try anything, and then just get rid of it if it wasn't a good idea.

Rough Art

Posted Jan 2020

Just for fun ~ Just because I felt like using my Fresco app ~ I made a Digital Caricature tonight. Based on photos that I found online.

I guess I could have taken it further, but I just like the roughness of it:

Then, still keeping it rough, but with a Lot more detail, I drew a Caricature of an older Melanie Griffith. I love this Painting app:

And here's one that is not so rough. But I just can't stop Painting these Digital Caricatures. This one is based on a photo that I found online of an older Michael Douglas. I guess I started getting in to Celebrity Photos. Oh I do hope someone orders a Digitally Painted Gift Caricature soon.
