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

I drew a Digital Caricature tonight

Posted Mar 2019

I didn't know Why I was focusing on Digital Caricatures tonight. I booked an Event for Digital Caricatures like a Month from now. I have plenty of Other types of Party Art to handle before it.

But I did. I just like to Connect with the IPad

and then..... I drew Another Digital Caricature the next night. To practice and be real familiar with the equipment. Which I am.

Staying in Shape

Posted Jan 2019

This is a great Caricature. I know what I'm doing.

But the agony to keep on top of it ~ to stay in shape ~ to keep the energy in my Artwork. I'm writing this post to show you what goes on behind the scenes. The sort of stuff I do Before I get to yet another Party, and still be thrilled to be drawing there. I keep my interest alive by Enjoying Artwork all the time ~ Feels like I never run out of new ideas.

Tonight I got the idea to work intermittently with the Marker or the Color Stick. Instead of what is usually done in which we draw the Outline with the Marker, and Then we go back into it with the Color Stick. I thought I would be able to affect the Emphasis this way.

But as usual, when I'm studying One Aspect of Drawing, One Idea, something else drops. Struggle, struggle, struggle, ooooooo ~ Then I was able to Let Go. And Enjoy Drawing ~ regardless of whether I felt like using Marker or Color Stick. Nothing boring here
