Joan Jett

from photos i found on the internet. Joan Jett. Fresco Digital Caricature

So. I'm torn between the Fresco app and the Procreate app. To be honest, what I really want to do on my Time off is Fresco app. It's like real painting, but cleaner. I feel like im in to it. Not a job. The way i really Paint just because i love to get in to it. I love to feel the expression develop as I paint. In Fresco. Just like in real Oil Painting. But without the mess.

But Procreate. That app came out years before Fresco. At first I kept trying to use it like real painting (what I can do in the Fresco app now), but I ended up developing a new type of Artwork instead. It wouldn't paint like Oil Paints. But going forward ~ discovering the special things that could only be done in Procreate. Could only be done with Current Art Supplies. I felt amazed with it. But I do have to say that it feels Commercial. Like the Product is what's important, not the Artist's experience.

So I did work very hard with the Procreate, and it can do some really neat stuff. That Fresco cannot do. It is much more suitable in a Party Setting ~ where I'm supposed to automatically drop in the dazzling answers. And I feel like I should stay connected with Procreate ~ since that's most of my business. At least, it Was most of my business until this Coronavirus thing hit. Anyway, I feel like I should stay connected with it and keep developing it more and more. I'm a grown-up. My job is more important than play.

But Fresco is more than play to me. It is more like meditation or heart or life. It's the sort of painting that I must do. That I would be doing in Some kind of media even if I never had another Job. And I prefer the Digital Fresco Painting to traditional media. Great. Versatile. More than Oil Painting (which is what I usually use it for), but it's more than that. I can mix Oil Painting with Watercolors and Pastels and Pencils and back and forth and more. Using any type of media I envision. I love Fresco

Middle of the night. Taking a break. Watching You Tube.

So my pen gets moving. Mindlessly drawing what I see.

I drew Noah Elkrief

Ready to Draw More People than I Can

Posted Feb 2020

I recommend Estimating 10 Faces per Hour. But I try to accommodate my Clients when they ask me to draw Faster.

Obviously, I can't do what I can't do. But there are ways to get more people drawn (if they all sit for their Caricatures very quickly ~ I can't very well Rush the Guests). I can approach the Artwork very simply. I can just draw Lines without Shading. I can skip the Color. And I feel that the way to keep them Simple is to just draw what I see ~ with not much in the way of Artist's Interpretation.

Still, the Artwork takes on a Quality of its own. Not the Whole Symphony, but a Simple Beauty in its Simplicity. Kind of Classy.

Preparing for Baptism

Posted Jan 2020

I'm anticipating the Baptism where I will be drawing Caricatures this weekend. So I warmed up by drawing a Caricature of a random Baby's photo that I found online.

Then I chose random photos to make a Family Caricature with the Baby. I like the way the shapes of the faces fit together:

Then a tried out an unusual choice for Coloring it. I used home colors for the Shading on one face, and then I used Gray marker for the shading on another face ~ within the Same picture. I feel glad that I try things out at home. In this case, my mixed approach didn't Ruin the picture, but I still don't feel like it was a good idea. I hope I don't try this at the Party.

It's either One of the Other. Either Black/White Picture with Gray Shading. Or Color Picture ~ no gray shading.
