Then and Now

Oh my goodness ~ Time Off ~ Relaxing ~ Just surfing around on the Computer ~ and I found this website. Oh my goodness. Fascinating. It shows a photo of a person when s/he was a young adult ~ next to a similar photo of the same person at about 100 years old. Oh my!

Art is like Swimming

Posted 5 days ago

Getting back to confidently (aka happily) drawing Caricatures again. I put the Portrait drawing in its place.

Yes I do them both. But at Different Times! They are Not the same.

Yes the Drawing Fundamentals are the Same for Any type of drawing. Caricatures. Portraits. Even Drafting. But my approach is completely different for the different types of drawings.

Here's a simile (metaphor?) about it: Drawing Caricatures is like Drawing Portraits the way Baking a Cake is like Making Chicken Soup.

Or or.... Drawing a Caricature is like Drawing a Portrait the way Running a Marathon is to Bench Pressing.

how about.... Drawing a Caricature is like Drawing a Portrait the way my Website is to Setting up Linotype.

I like playing with Words. I like Drawing Pictures. All kinds of Pictures. But I better be into the Caricatures today. Because I have Caricature Jobs on Friday and Saturday.

Such Lovely Colors ~

Posted May 2018

I check Before Each Digital Caricature Event that All my Equipment is working. So I drew Digital Caricatures from Photos at previous posts on this website.

Success. Not a single glitch.

Good Speed!

Posted May 2018

I comfortably kept up my Drawing Speed today ~ Even though I was doing Both Body/Hobby And Color. I somehow Simplify when there's this other stuff to include.

The hardest part of doing Body/Hobby is communicating. Frequently the Music is too loud to talk, but that wasn't the case at today's lovely Party. Still though, people just draw a Blank when I ask them what they like to do.

Here's One of the pictures that I drew today. Finally, after the Paaauuusseee ~ while I was drawing the Faces with no idea of what else I would have to include in the picture ~ the girl said "Color. We like to Color."

It was easy for me to swing into Picture ideas. I was 'in the Zone' because I was forwarned that I would be doing Body/Hobby today
