Moving Along

Posted Apr 2014

Still not ready yet, but my studies for Digital Caricatures at Parties are moving along. They're still not as fast as the Traditional Caricatures that I do at Parties, but I actually took strides towards it. I designed my own ready-made quick-palette on my IPad.

This might surprise you, but it actually took me over an hour to draw this first one:

Then, I added shading. Perhaps an additional 20 minutes here:

Okay. That was only my first pass with my new approach. So this next one only took about 20 minutes. Much better, but still not good enough for working Digitally at Parties.

And here is my best try for today. Still not ready to go out with them, but I drew the following Caricature with Shading on my IPad in 20 minutes:

For events, I'm still only offering the Caricatures on Paper. Because I can draw about 10 faces per hour that way. But I'm feeling more confident that I am on the right path to also offer digitals soon.

Digital Caricatures ~ Still drawn in the Studio

Posted Apr 2014

Still feeling determined to do these digital Caricatures fast enough to work digitally at Parties. So lol ~ why did I get so involved again? Losing all awareness of time as I just Enjoyed the new equipment.

Soooo, I'm still using traditional supplies to quickly communicate my visions when I'm at Parties. But boy do I like drawing on my IPad.

Digital Artwork

Posted Aug 2013

I enjoy using the new Art Supplies. Any one Studio picture can flip between IPad's ArtStudio, Computer's PhotoShop, Paper with Markers and Colorsticks, The Lightbox..... And I still use Pencils with Erasers. Different Supplies are best for handling different aspects of the Artwork.

For instance, I prefer using PhotoShop for Warping Text, but I prefer using IPad for Coloring. So I have to send a picture back and forth. I discovered that it's easy to Export the picture directly from the IPad ~ there's a dropdown menu for 'Export by email'. But I have to save the picture to my Desktop and then pick it up from the Desktop if I want to email it from PhotoShop. Extra fussy-steps.

So I wrote a note to myself about that. And I chose to keep the note because I want to remember how easily I made the Camophlage-style background when I wrote that note.

The Artist has new toys.
