IPad Versatility

Posted 14 days ago

Here are just a couple of the Digital Caricatures that I drew at a recent Event. It's just great how I can resize and erase and use different brushes and oh there's just so much flexibility in drawing on an IPad.

Studying is for Students

Posted 15 days ago

Getting ready for drawing Caricatures at tomorrow's Party. It will be a Big Wedding. For practice, I used a reference photo from a previous Event where I was drawing Caricatures. Not that there was anything wrong with the one I had drawn That day, but I have to get into it again before each Event.

My first pass was so stiff ~ I feel like studying makes us like students. aka beginners. So I went back to my regular approach ~ and i feel like my recent studies will just make me feeeeeel more comfortable when im doing hair and eyes and stuff.

Simplifying Hair

Posted 17 days ago

Time to get serious again. Enough playing around with my equipment. I have regular Caricature Parties and Events coming up in just a couple of days.

Tonight I chose to focus on Hair. I went on-line, chose random reference photos, and drew just the hair. I did it all WithOut a predraw ~ except for the men's facial hair.

Funny how I felt comfortable and happy with what I was doing ~ until I got to Men's Facial Hair. Then I had to work things out and do some predraws. I wonder if that's because I'm a woman ~ I don't shave. So I don't automatically review how facial hair grows every day.

Photos of Reactions

Posted 19 days ago

Whenever possible, I like to take photos of the Reactions to my Caricatures. Delighted Guests. Happy Surprises. It helps me re-live the experience.

When I arrived at the venue/bar for this Party, I felt like it was going to be one of those Drawing in the Dark events oh. But no ~ as I walked in, I saw that they had an outdoor 'porch' on the water ~ oooh ~ uhoh about that too ~ do i have my sunscreen with me, or would i have to take the time to go back to my car to get it? It was like 100-degrees out there that day.

But no ~ not that either Yay. Turned out to be a great Event. My Client had arranged for a well-lit Indoor area for the Caricatures ~ her Guests could easily see the Activity from outside on the porch as well as from inside in the bar. It was all open so meandering back and forth was natural. And my Client kindly arranged for a Big Fan to be directed towards me. I felt so comfortable. I felt like I was able to do my best work, and I felt like the Guests felt comfortable and welcome also. Easy-going.

Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew. And the Reactions of the Guests. I feel like it's the best way to really show Reviews. People having a Good Time at the Party:
