My daily practice sketch. This time with the Pen & Ink iPad app. The nib of my stylus makes it difficult to draw more precise lines. When I do get a fine point stylus, it should be easier.
I am expecting an Android tablet in the next week or so. Looking forward to trying out drawing apps on it.
While my grandson slept, I did a quick sketch on my iPad with ArtRage for a possible composition.
Decided to take a break from working on laptop and doodled with ArtRage on my iPad. I collected many feathers when the wild turkeys visited on a regular basis.
With the laptop stuck in an update loop, I doodled on the iPad with SketchBook Pro. I do not have a compatible stylus, so no pen connection.
I did use the complementary option in the Copic colour palette. They do appear to work well together.
My drawing du jour. I am still practicing figures. Thought I would try a deliveryman this time.
I like to use small decorations to enhance a book page, just a little something with a light colour. In printed books, they call them margin drawings.
I started with a simple ink drawing in a notebook. Then I took a photo with Adobe Shape and sent it to Photoshop. In Photoshop, I enlarged shape and saved it in psd.
Within Corel Painter I captured the shape as a brush dab. With the advance brush tool, I made a few more changes and saved the variant in my personal custom brush category.
Now I have another way of adding a personal touch.
Do you remember my scanned loose pen sketch? It turned out to be a good
sample for practicing with Corel Painter’s Real Watercolor brushes.
It is nice to be able to combine traditional sketching on paper with
I practice drawing daily. Improving my line drawings helps with all projects.
For this male face, I tried a trick I found in a Carrie Stuart Parks book. I managed to finish one ear but could not repeat the shape on the opposite of the face.
With tracing paper, I copied the finished ear. I flipped the paper, aligned it with the other side of the face and retraced the lines. Perfect set.
