The Same Person!

Posted 4 days ago

Going through unposted photos of Caricatures that I drew Before this pandemic situation. I felt chagrinned when I came across the Caricature that I drew in the 3/4 view ~ because it looked familiar. Concerned ~ was i actually one of those Artists who always draws the Same Thing? I never thought I was........

Then, laughing. Ahah! I remember now. It looks like something I drew before because it was the Same Person. Actually, two Very Different Drawings ~ of the Same Person. I found the front-view photo in a different post on my website. Apparently I drew the Same Person at two different Events.

always a Happy Experience

Scribble Artist

Posted Mar 2020

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.
