Experimenting again with dragon ideas. This one is made up of a drawing coloured in with different nail varnishes and then duplicated and mirrored after adding texture digitally. The blurred section had the words ‘dragon scales’ written on it but I decided to blur that out.
Each of these experiments will be added to a portfolio of images that will go towards my final major project for college.
If you don’t have an app to add a filter why not use something real instead? Here I used some crumpled plastic wrapping paper to put over the top of my abstract drawing of a face. It almost looks like the lines are printed on the plastic. Remember, experiment, have fun!
I saw this and had to take photo of it. Its tucked in a corner and I’m afraid the dust and cobwebs had descended on it. It’s a photo experiment of my hubbies hands from the 1970’s? Funny what you find when you are rummaging in and around things. I know I’ve got too much ‘stuff’.
Try drawing then putting that through as many filters as you can. Layering one idea over another, changing colours, tones, putting in lighting effects. Always try and do something new, different. Learn as you experiment. Know how you can change things.
I see an alien, green figure in this landscape. By playing with filters you can get surreal effects. I think this had a feeling of ancient topiary. I used a texture and mirroring filter to change it and make it more interesting I hope.
First take an everyday object or scene. Then redraw it but change it. That’s what I’ve done here. Coming up with different ideas in twenty minutes. So I give you a lighthouse, graffiti torch, a torch to see fingerprints (which might be leaking acid) and changing between straight lines and curves. Fun workshop. I’m going to work more on lines and shading.
I touched a spiral bulb to my plasma lightning lamp that shines using four triple A batteries. I was amazed that it glowed brightly. The lamp must be transferring energy to the light bulb. I will try and find out if it effects any other bulbs?
I went a bit mad for this, today’s #bandofsketchers prompt dancer/music. Made a drawing in metallic watercolours of a ballet dancer, I didn’t base it on a particular pose. When it was finished I wasn’t happy so I drew over it, then changed it in the photo app on my phone . I’m including all three versions I saved.
The monoprint was made by rubbing paper onto black paint brushed onto silver foil and then scratched through a bit. I then cut out a shape to fit to the shape of the woman body and arm, side of the face and hair, (basically the shaded side of her face and body). This was a bit nerve wracking as I only had ten minutes to do the cutting out, sticking, and drawing the rest of the portrait. I used the monoprint from a stock of them I’d made already.
