I bought myself an IPad Pro for Christmas. Here's my first drawing with it. Teena Tumbilina (The best feline in the world) modelled for the painting.
I'm still learning the features of the software (I didn't know I could make my lines straight....Next time).
Nonetheless, I'm pleased with my quick sketch. I really like the narrative and the composition.
Yesterday I decided I wanted some practice doing caricatures so I went to Dallas Road and put up a sign offering to do free caricatures. I know it's an odd thing to do but artists can do odd things, eh. Anyways, in all ten people were adventurous enough to indulge me. Here are three of them. It was fun and it was also so nice to chat with new people.
Here are some caricatures I did yesterday at the Coast Harbourside. It's really a lot of fun doing them. I've been doing them for free to get some practice...and to take the pressure off. I have a disclaimer on my sign that reads:
"Any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely a coincidence. " LOL
I just bought a new sketchbook and pen set. I thought I would try a Zentangle type drawing. Here's what I've come up with so far. They are done totally from my imagination. Normally I only paint from what I can see so this was new to me. I'm quite pleased with the results.
