Anticipation

Posted 9 days ago

Looking forward to it. I've been drawing in the Studio. But I can't post it here yet. Because I was working on an upcoming Proposal Caricature. Doesn't feel right to show it to other people before my Client gets to see and use it.

So I figure I'll just Tell you what I did so far. This Proposal Caricature is different than all the others that I've officiated.

I usually draw Proposal Caricatures from photos that my Client sends me. And then I pretend to draw it at the Event, giving more attention to the Couple's Experience. But this Client requested that I handle it differently. He wants me to be able to draw the Clothes, Earrings, Hairstyles, Landscape, Flowers Of the Moment. And of course, we won't know what his intended will be wearing until Day Of.

I guess I could just draw it all on the spot ~ I am accustomed to drawing lots of people on the spot at Parties and Events. But my Client specifically wrote: Loosely Quoted "Might take a little too long. I don't want her to get suspicious or impatient. However, I don't want it to be incomplete. Are you able to start some of the drawing in advance and then draw our attire, background, or whatever else. If you're unable to do it, that's ok. We can do the whole drawing in person." Unquote. I like to give my Clients what they want, so I'm trying to plan it out now, and then actually draw it Day Of. My Client wants (and it paying for) a much bigger production that what I could do in the short time he wants the Event to last.

So here I am, doing my beloved Predraw. He sent me photos of the beautiful place where we would be (I can't tell if it will be the same season as in the photos), and he sent me photos of himself and his 'future bride'. I wanted to pull the many reference photos into Photoshop, but that didn't work easily. I don't know what some people do that make their photos or paperwork impossible to download from their emails, but that was the case with this one. Took me a long time to figure out how to access the photos.

I'm not a fill-in-the-blanks sort of 'Artist', so I feel unsure of whether or not this predraw would be a waste of time. Depending on what I would want to draw about their attire and environment (he especially mentioned that she's into her earrings, and it would be a good idea to draw the ones she wears that day) and what sort of flowers are in the area (and what if it rains and we have to move to an alternate Indoor location altogether!?!).....

Good thing that I like to draw and dream about my drawings ahead of time. I figure that whatever I end up seeing Day Of, my Pre-Studying will be very helpful.

The next time I spend time on this project, I must look up 'Radiant Cut' diamond rings. My Client mentioned that the ring is 'Radiant Cut' as though I know what that means? I'm figuring that it's probably a diamond.

Procreate Painting

Posted 30 days ago

My current Studio project is creating a singing alien Crooner for a the Art on a cd album for a Friend. Not at all finished, but this is what I did so far.

I particularly like how I made the alien shiny Gold. I feel like this job is bringing me a step towards that dream I had of painting in Procreate as though it was Oil Paints. By encompassing just a 'Thing' instead of trying to make a full Painting, it finally got me using the Procreate Tools in a more Painterly fashion.

I'm feeling like this might be My way to go for my subsequent Procreate paintings. To just outline each 'Thing' and deal with it individually. I'm even feeling like I might want to just make everything Shiny. Just because I'm liking to do this right now.

It's a look. It can be my style ~ for a while ~ since that's what I'm interested in. Might be.

I wish I had time to post more

Posted Aug 2019

I have so many Big Parties booked ~ sometimes day after day. Barely time to sleep between Events, let alone post the pictures. But I was really On at this Event. The Art was just flowing.

Here I'm just posting 2 at random. Two of the Caricatures that I drew at this FIVE-AND-A-HALF HOUR Event. Then..... Good Night:

alone in my studio

Posted Aug 2019

When I sat down to draw tonight, I planned on practicing Fast Speed Exaggerated Caricatures. So I googled Faces in the town where I will be drawing at an Event tomorrow. (that's today already). Because I was hired specifically to draw Color Caricatures (tomorrow).

But here, alone in my Studio, procrastinating at every point of the activity because it's midnight and I'm in my own space and I feel totally affected by the Title of the first picture that I noticed.....

I spent too long on it. But it felt so good to draw it
