Still Tweaking

Posted 2 days ago

This morning, I ate breakfast outside. I felt inspired to Caricature the Cars that were parked down the block.

We can Caricature other things besides Faces. It helps me see whee I have to pick up my skills.

In this case, I realized that I Must do my Warm-Ups. I must get that pen Moving. It's Speed. Which is affected by the Confidence of knowing what we're doing.

First picture shows my first pass. Good, but it didn't quite hit my mark. Then I did my Drawing Warm-Ups. And I love the following 2 pictures. That's what I was trying to develop. That's what had inspired me to draw these cars

Studying at Starbucks

Humility. I felt inspired by the way I recently organized my approach to Digital Caricatures, so I felt inspired to organize my approach to Caricatures Drawn with Markers. I used to consider that 'filling in the blanks', not 'real art'. Feeling like I Must Be Better Than That in order to be a Real Artist. But it only makes sense. So I'm not 'taken by surprise' each time I start to make a Drawing.

Turned out that I could only tailor it down to 3 Different Approaches. Outside-In, Inside-Out, and Exaggerated. I pretty much only felt successful with Outside-In and Exaggerated. I'm figuring that Outside-In is more suitable for Events like Communions, and Exaggerated is the way to go for Teenagers and Grown-Ups. Probably just a good Starting Plan at Events. Because the experience of actually using these different approaches was different than expected.

After several Successful Caricatures with one type of approach, I felt burned out on it. Didn't like what came out anymore. But if I switched to the Other Approach, the pictures were fresh again. And either way, I had to be doing Warm Ups as usual ~ to keep my lines Fresh.
