Self Development

Posted 5 days ago

Self development? Or developing my ability to draw Caricatures?

After today's Jehovah's Witnesses left, I was drawing while watching YouTubes. I like Infinite Waters diving Deep

Timing Digital Caricatures

Posted 7 days ago

Uhoh ~ I was going to draw one quick Digital Caricature tonight. I used the Template that's prepared for my upcoming Event, but of course I deleted the Customer's Logo before posting them here. Eekgads, 10 minutes into it, and unfinished. I was daydreaming.

So I got serious, well, tried to get myself into check, when I went to draw a 2nd Caricature. 6 minutes in, and I only had the linework done on the man with the big chin. I don't shy away from the difficult ones ~ because you can't control that at a Party. And I had used quite a bit of a predraw.

So I only used face/shape-size and one centerline for predraw on the 3rd Caricature? I think that's what I did. The man with the black beard. 6 minutes in, and this is all I was up to. Apparently I was playing around too much with the Procreate tools.

4th picture here ~ much better. 7 minutes. But I was still not done. I did Not use any predraw, so I got up to Some of the color.

Not good enough. I know I'm tempted to be floaty when I'm alone in my Studio after a long intense day, but I'd like to do it faster.

Dang ~ I cut back on playfulness in order to draw this 5th Digital Caricature fast. Took 7 minutes. Completed enough.

I have some ideas to increase my Speed that I hope will work the next time I have a chance to practice this. Leaving room for playfulness, aka Art

Background

Posted 8 days ago

Happily playing around with my Digital Equipment tonight. I drew this Caricature with a White Background. And then with a Black Background. Looking forward to seeing them Both Posted side by side here

I like the Black Background better.

Humility

Posted 10 days ago

I ate dinner at Whole Foods today. Time Off. Just me and my IPad. First I watched my Disney app. Then I turned my attention to that upcoming Digital Caricature Event again. I used the Template that I made last night. The one with all the Layers set to Multiply. It felt Perfect.

I really Enjoyed playing around with this Exaggerated Caricature. But I spent way too much time on it ~ I won't be able to spend this much time on anything I draw at the Party.

So I drew from the Same Reference Photo again ~ a Simpler Caricature. It only took about 6 minutes. I got my game down pat.

I did draw it After spending a lot of time drawing it more Exaggerated, so you could say that that 6 minute timing is inaccurate ~ I already knew the answers. But I feel confident with it. Because I previously experienced that in the imperfect drawing environment of a Party, my Digital Caricatures start feeling so easy ~ and simple ~ as the experience affects me. So I do end up drawing faster than I would if I was playing around with it like I can on my Time Off.

I used the Template that I prepared last night ~ the one with all Layers set as 'Multiply'.

I usually feel like a Client is too full of himself if he can't handle an exaggerated Caricature. But sometimes, like in this case, I'm wondering if this Artist is too full of herself in thinking that her own great creativity is better than just doing it right. It's something else with which I never settle on an Answer. Because there is No Answer. It's all about being in the moment. Doing what works in the moment in terms of Fun and Humility and Ability.
