Digital drawing. Playing with the idea of being struck by lightning.
I used a sketch app with various pens. In this case I had to overlay different pen tools like a sparkler pen or a crackleur one. They gave too much texture so I tried smudging the marks, giving an out of focus look, then building up again with the crackling surface and then using a black spray can pen to take out some of the marks. I posted this on Instagram, but used the clarendon edit on that which gave the image a slightly blue tinge. I’ve posted both versions so you can see the slight difference that makes.
This is a Facebook memory from a while ago. It’s using an app on my tablet, but that’s in need of upgrading at the moment. I like the quality of the colours and the apparent texture. I hope to do more when things are sorted out. I would love to put a book of images together, but they would have to be good ones.
I may have the date wrong when I stopped doing these. The site closed and I downloaded a lot of my drawings so they didn’t get lost. They are drawings using the simple tools that were on the site. If you have seen my other drawings I posted here, you will know I did some challenges, there are a couple of those here. Plus portraits of my cat Tig who sadly died, but who I still remember with love. Than there are some random cartoons and doodles. I❤️cats!
Another sketchfu challenge drawing I did so many years ago. Pandas have been in decline for years. They are limited by the food they eat (bamboo) and their habitat is disappearing like many places where the pressure of agriculture outweighs the needs of animals.
Panda jaws are very strong to chew bamboo which is why they have a fixed characteristic “smile”.
They are iconic animals and the World wide fund for nature uses a stylised panda as its symbol.
There are breeding programmes but nothing can compare to an animal in the wild, not cooped up in a zoo. Unfortunately poaching is a prolem as with other animals like gorillas.
I loved drawing this. Some challenges were a bit irksome but this was fun.
Oh I did like drawing this. It must be 10 years ago. I like my digital experiments. This may well be turned into a painting. That’s why I like experimenting. My mind can be free. This was another sketchfu drawing.
