Line Quality

Posted Oct 2018

Playing Scrabble. Waiting for my friend to put down a word already. I'm doodling.

Funny to think that the first picture here ~ the one with the rougher lines ~ might actually be more useful as my practice. Because I've been drawing graceful lines ever since I was a little girl pirouetting. It feels very natural for me to draw like that. But the chunkier lines? I've only been using then for about 10 years now. By practicing them, I'm more likely to switch to this type of Line when I'm drawing Caricatures.

That's why I like to draw in a Real Party situation. No time to think. No time to control very much of what I draw. Yet I feel thrilled about feeling confident. By practicing now, my hand automatically does it when it's needed at an Event.

My Own Schooling

Posted Sep 2018

Ouch......Ooooch.....Eeech......Och.....

I had gone to the Dentist. When he found me studying how the eyeBall fits into the eye socket, he shared his book with me: Netters Atlas of Human Anatomy.

Good Stuff ~ I feel like there are a lot of potential ideas here for a Caricature Artist

Why not

Posted Jul 2018

This guy was a real sport. A kid's Party. Everyone ~ including the Entertainment and the Adults dressed up in Costumes.

Here's a quick Caricature of the way he looked on this particular day. When he was dressed up in the Party spirit. I'm sure he doesn't usually dress this way.

Sometimes it feels like the people want to joke around in the Office ~ and then be serious at a Party. Like they're trying to create an image of being a fun-guy when they're in the Office. And then they want everyone to know that they're really dignified when they get to the Party. This is Not the way things are supposed to be.

We should seriously focus on our work in the Office. And we should let loose and play at a Party. I feel pleased to see people who come to a Party intending to have Fun

I tamed the Tongue !

Posted Jul 2018

Today I was thinking about drawing Cartoon Eyes. Simple. For my Party Caricatures. I started by emphasizing (focusing on?) the Ball of the eye. But then I wanted to focus on the skin that's overlapping the eyeball.

While I was at it, I got off on a tangent, and noticed that I'd better look in to Tongues. Success. I got it to lay down. I damed the Tongue!
