I played Scattegories and Boggle with some of my Scrabble friends . Online.

Caricatures while chatting. Just some light easy doodling

Anime Babies

Posted Oct 2019

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.

I love to show my Pictures. I love to look at my Pictures.

I wish it didn't take so long to post pictures of my Caricatures. I wish I could show them all ~ as soon as I make them.

Here is a smattering ~ just a few of the Caricatures that I drew at a recent Community Event. It was such a lovely day. Perfect weather, perfect people, and me drawing Fun Pictures.

Reinventing the Wheel. Again.

Posted Sep 2019

Time off tonight. I figured I would like to just draw some simple shapes.But I didn't just draw shapes. As soon as I picked up the Color stick, I thought my shapes into face parts.

My background is Realistic Painting, not in Linework. I always started with a Toned Canvas. So I decided to get a slice of brown craft paper to start again.

Not as bad as before, but not as fascile as it should have been. t's hard to imagine how the light falls on such a complicated structure as a face when you have one there to look at with controlled lighting .

It's my experience with Party Caricatures that the toned paper is only used for darker skin-toned people. Even light skinned people also have a skin tone when you're Painting them. They're not White, like White Paper. Maybe it's because we exaggerate when we draw Caricatures, like Light is almost White, so we leave it white? I don't know how it came about. But sometimes it's just easier to do what' expected.

So I started to make up a face. Again on white paper. But I decided to use a midtone color stick for the background. (also not a good idea ~ back to the paper conundrum some day). Anyway, I drew a light/midtone blue around 'the face area' before starting. I guess it's 3-dimensional. I don't really like it, but it will probably have a good effect on subsequent Caricatures that I will be drawing at Events. After I suffer the questions, I make better pictures.
