This is a doodle from my IPhone’s digital sketch book called, ‘Tiny Pink Sketchbook’, made with Paper 53. I doodle anytime I get a minute, most sketches are connected to the part of my brain that I can’t always talk too, until it draws me a picture. Lots of artist have verbalized this in different ways… enjoy.
The witch makes me wonder what makes them frightening? She has no claws, teeth, fur, muscles, or slim which makes her the most interesting monster. Drawn as ugly green women to make us shrink in our theater chair but looking closer she is now my favorite classic monsters depicted reading books. Smart girls make folks run in fear?
‘The gravity of the earth is pulling me down.’, says Swamp Thing.
‘The best place to lay eggs?’ The slimy creature thinks as it watches you skipping rocks. ‘A host to houses my eggs, something warm and tasty.’ Swamp thing thinks as it silently slips into the cold dry air. Looking down at reflections in still eye. She smiles at you after your breath is gone, ‘What a happy nest this will make. I’m such a good mom.’ She smiles as you’re dragged under.
The Group brought in Scott to pose he’s the first male model in a long time and it’s the first time using my iPad at a life drawing event. Tonights sketches all posted below. We started, like most sessions, with one Minute poses.
I took a minutes to make a quick pallet. As the night went on i added a pink and yellow.
Big fills with ‘Roller’ tool.
I’m using #Paper53 to do the drawings. The ‘Roller’ tool is my favorite!
Still just doing one minute drawings I feel a bit clumsy with the iPad, new media is always funny at first.
Scott is throwing down great one min poses.
Legs, one minute drawing.
Nope, jump to a new page.
Better, this is the last one minute figure drawing.
Ok five minute figure drawing are flowing better. I and able to break out shapes and show some structure.
More of Scott as captured by Alex Feliciano and his magic tablet.
Getting a bit easier now. More colors added to the pallet.
Nice hands in this one.
Hard pose, I was really trying to capture tention might go back and rework this at a later time.
More great hands, thanks Scott
working on the iPad is tuff but the ease of switching colors makes up for it, I’m using Paper53 on an iPad Pro and Apple pencil,
Now we venture into the 10 minute poses. Hello Detail, can this thing do it?
Yes it can, Another 10 minute figure draw by Alex Feliciano with Paper 53.
10 minutes adding yellow to the pallet.
Fingers, nope, next page please.
Fingers, Better, figure drawing of Scott with pole extension.
P.S. Scott has a light beard and because I don’t get many dudes modeling for me and none with beards I’m like WTF.
20 Minutes, I’m switching to a pencil tool on the iPad.
And the last figure drawing of the night, 20 minutes, Thank you Scott.
Looking around on YouTube and found online figure drawing videos. Very neat stuff, I felt a little clumsy with the remote, iPad, Apple Pencil, and sitting on the couch. The videos are timed and the lighting is nice.
