Doodles

I think I was trying to do abstract faces with lines here. Somehow the doodles at the bottom of the picture seem to fit with the contours above. I don’t remember the canvas so I probably painted over it. Sometimes what you paint is not what you want and you have to scrap it. Sometimes you fool yourself into thinking somethings OK when it really isn’t. I like some things and they just won’t work…. I may try and alter this in a digital app? Don’t know. I think this image is about three or four years old….

Digital crocosmia

Digital crocosmia

I like playing with images and these are two versions of a digital drawing using different options in photodirector.

This was my basic sketch in ArtRage oils which I drew over with Sketch app.

It might not be very good but it shows what you could do to make it more interesting….

I can’t do this on my phone

I’m confused, this is my confused face. I can’t find some of my settings although this seems to be the classic version of WordPress I am still irritated and lost. Bits of information and buttons are missing….

Sigh

Why mess it up? I’m getting too fed up with it! Not a good attitude for a happy new years eve.

Glass bottle doodle

First doodle
Finished doodle

I drew some flowers in an oval area in ArtRage oils. Then transfered it to my Sketch app and added the shape, a bit of shading and the background. Finally I transferred it to Photodirector to add some lighting effects. I tried to draw something that looks like a glass jar.

Doodled face

Doodle using a program called ArtRage oils. I started with some black “paint” then used a dry brush to spread it out. If you use this it sort of fades the paint. Then I changed to another brush which again uses a paint. I used a black, then white version of the tools to draw in a few sketchy details. This is drawn with a finger not a stylus.

Dragon doodle

Doodling a dragon 🐲 but I really don’t know their morphology. I know ones I draw tend to look horselike , with scale skin and wide wings and a long pointed tail. But would they fly? They would need a large breast bone to attach massive muscles to. They would probably need hollow bones to make them light enough to get airborne. Would they have front legs and wings too? Birds have modified front limbs that have evolved into wings, perhaps dragons would be the same.

In any case they are creatures of magic in mythology. Perhaps one day they could be genetically created, and appear like the Fire Lizards in Anne MacCafferys Dragon series of books – pets like small cats…

Horse sketch

Chatting with someone earlier reminded me how I like to doodle horses. I will draw them from photos, but I also enjoy playing about digitally. This was drawn in ArtRage oils free app. It has a slider to change brush sizes and how metallic they look and different brushes including a dry ink, endless oils, and a couple of others. I’m quite pleased with the outcome.
