I Can See in the Dark!

Posted 15 days ago

Well.... not really..... although I do try to exercise that..... sometimes. Like I'll try to put away stuff without turning on the lights in a dark room, or I'll try to read without flooding the page with easy-light. I don't do it often, because I don't like to. But I feel like it's a good idea to exercise vision the same way we exercise other muscles. By adding a little difficulty to it.

What I'm writing about here is handling all types of Party situations. Usually the light is okay, but sometimes Party Lighting is.... less than optimal for the Caricature Artist. Like this Party. Where I was drawing in a room with Changing Colored Lights.

Didn't stress me out this time. I finally came with enough lights ~ that I set up most advantageously ~ to be able to draw comfortably. To be able to see the people and to be able to see my drawing board and kinda able to see my color sticks.

I felt amazingly comfortable ~ I finally brought along enough Lights. But the photos, of course, came out fully affected by the colored lights.

A good time was had by All ~ Including the Artist!

American Idol Couple

Posted Jul 2019

Time to get serious now. Turning my focus towards Engaged Couples. Because tomorrow (that's kinda today already) ~ tomorrow I have a Big Event to draw Caricatures at an Engagement Party.

Lol ~ like serious? Got to be a Caricature Artist to understand what that means when we're drawing pictures that don't Look serious.

I usually prefer to draw Individuals than Couples. But today, after drawing This caricature, it turns out that I'm hoping to get some Couples at today's Party. Seeing people Together can be fun.

I had Googled "Engaged" to come up with a Reference photo to warm up with. The first one I saw was of these American Idol Contestants ~ Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner

The Same Artist drawing the Same Subject

Posted Jul 2019

the Same Artist with the Same Subject ~ Funny how the artwork can have a completely different flavor under different circumstances. Tonight I drew a different Caricature based on the photo in the previous post.

In tonight's Caricature, I wasn't concerned with pleasing anyone. I was on my own, just applying what I was recently studying. Just for fun. Developing a little more form.

But in the Gift Caricature that I originally drew with a whole Scene, I was giving my Client what she said she wanted.
