Community Thanksgiving

Posted 16 days ago

I was drawing Caricatures at an Early Thanksgiving Event. Hosted by the Community.

I feel so happy to be involved in Good Events like this. I feel like Every Community should host a Thanksgiving Dinner.

Sylvester Stallone

Posted 20 days ago

This is harder than it looks. But I feel like I'm getting the hang of it. Using the Pressure Sensitivity of the White Pencil is different than using it with a Real Paintbrush or a Real Pencil. And the Fresco App really mimics Real Oil Painting and Real Watercolors and Real Bamboo Brush ~ but again, a little differently than we do when we're not in the Virtual World.

Tonight I made this Caricature based on a photo that I found of a 25-year old Sylvester Stallone.

Erase Fear

Posted 20 days ago

Took this photo when I walked into the Art Supply Store. I like the slogan on the shirt. Erase Hate.

I figure that we could Erase all sorts of things we don't like. We could erase it with Rainbow colors ~ like these. It's good to be an #Artist.

As with everything we do, the Experience is different than just saying it.

First, I erased Fear with a rainbow line ~ like the one I saw on the Shirt. In order to do that, I made an Opaque Layer of White, and then I drew Transparent Colors on top of it. I needed to do that so I could make the bright Colors obliterate what was underneath it.

Then I erased Panic with White.

Then I tried to erase a Scene ~ going right into it with Transparent Rainbow Colors. On top of the Black background that the tshirt-Artist chose so perfectly, the Transparent Rainbow Colors did not look delightful. I realized that we need an intermediary. Like going to Jesus to erase our sins. For this project's intermediary, I had to put a Layer of White over the Scene before I could apply the Colors. And then I let the Colors fly off the white ~ to even take over the Black scene.

I feel good.

I particularly Love that I just discovered that we don't have to somehow Stop the bad things from the past like we do with a Pencil Eraser. In this Non-physical world, we can easily Erase them the way I did just now in PhotoShop. We can erase past sins by doing something lovely on top of them. Afterwards.

Anime Babies

Posted 21 days ago

I'll be drawing Caricatures at a 1-year-old's Party this Weekend. So I figured I'd look at some Anime for inspiration. Not that I would be drawing Anime. Actually, not sure How it would be affecting me. I just figure that Anime has a lot of Big Eyes that people like for their Babies.

Then I drew some random Baby faces just anywhere on the page. The first Caricature was still inspired by the Anime I looked at. I imposed those big oval Eyes onto the face, and it worked.

But it felt uncomfortable to just draw the same eyes for each baby. And the 2nd Caricature that I drew really didn't lend itself to that eye-shape. It still came out good, still looked like it was inspired by Anime.

Then there wasn't really any room left on the paper, but I wanted to draw more. I drew 2 more babies (small), and I dropped my Anime idea. It's a good idea, but it loses its appeal if I feel like I have to impose a standard Anime face onto each Baby. Babies, like all people, have all sorts of expressions and uniques.

I feel like it was good to expose myself to Anime. It might or might not affect my drawings.
