Perfecting my Artwork

Posted Apr 2018

Perfecting my Artwork. Determined to figure out how to draw this unique 'Mouth' (from an old photo here on this blog). There was a Lot to consider. In particular, this one really needed the Shading Above and Below the "Lips". And the squared-off corners.

When I study things like this, I find it has a positive influence on my Party Performances. Never a dull moment ~

Manhattan Club

Posted Mar 2018

For yesterday, I was drawing at a Swanky Manhattan Club that was meticulously maintained for much more than 100 years. It felt like I was drawing on the Titanic ~ but luckily I didn't have to be on the Water.

Studying Eyes

Posted Mar 2018

I loved the CARICATURES that I drew here last night. But I did notice that most of the eyes were just hints. It worked in these pictures because that was what I saw. Many of the reference photos were reactions that these people had when I showed them their CARICATURES, and most people squint away their eyes when they Laugh. I wonder why that is. I guess it's something I'll have to think about when I have a chance to do so.

Anyway, I decided to focus on eyes tonight. So I enlarged the photos of a few of the eyes in some of my reference pictures, and I just drew the eyes. Linework like I would use in a Party Caricature, but no real exaggeration. It's Study-time again.

One of the interesting thing I picked up tonight was to see that Not All of the Eyes have a highlight. Another thing to think about. What causes one person's eyes to reflect highlights in the Same Setting where another person's eyes to not reflect highlights ~
