Drawing Together

Posted 26 days ago

It's Fun to Draw with other Artists. Here we were ~ we both drew the Same Man. And then, I drew my friend in two different styles (didn't finish the 2nd one ~ we were jumping so fast from one idea to the next)

Here are a few photos from the Party Caricatures that I made at a Woman's 40th Birthday Party. At a bar. These people had so much fun together.

Nice Caricature

Posted Apr 2019

I'm getting in to drawing Nice Caricatures for the past few days. I did this one on my time off. Just for fun.

Well.... I enjoyed my timing experience. I had set up a Timer, and I stopped drawing at 4 minutes. It's fine ~ even though I would have been doing More if I hadn't used the Timer ~ starting with the unique clunky necklace this girl was wearing (Random Reference Picture online) . It helped me remember that Party Caricatures are supposed to be Quick

Timing Digital Caricatures

Posted Apr 2019

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
