I’m tired and not feeling much like doing anything, scratchy sore throat and a bit blocked up nose and ears. I decided to doodle a face. Why is it when I draw profiles they normally face left? Previous discussions with other artists raised the idea you can see where to draw easier if you draw the outline first then move back towards the eyes and mouth and ears. This is a finger drawing in ArtRage oils. I need to experiment more with it. I also need to find my stylus.
Combination of artrage oils sketch and then worked on in Photodirector, oo I like it! Sounds simple but I did a lot of work on the digital sketch before I started using filters. I won’t post the original, it’s a bit too scrappy.
Or is it turquoise? Drawn in ArtRage oils. Finger painting on my phone. One of the challenges with drawing on a phone is if you don’t use a stylus (I can’t find mine) and the tools on this app means the colours smear together. I do have ArtRage on my tablet. That’s the pro version with many more tools but my phone is easier to use as it’s not as heavy on my arm.
Doodle in ArtRage oils free app. I’m so busy drawing with felt pens that I forgot that I have it on my phone. I’m sort of sticking with blue and yellow as my main colours. Why, because Ukraine is on my mind. I guess this isn’t brilliant but finger painting with smudgy drawing tools can be difficult. I don’t know what made me draw this, but it was fun..
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was diversion. This is a totally digital drawing using tools like flower and leaf stamps in the ‘Sketch’ app on my phone. It also has a pixel pen and a ruler that allows you to draw straight lines. I added some crackles and shadows to make it feel like something that has been there for ages. I call it ‘Round the houses’. Or ‘a long way round’!
I kept some of the images I created on my old Nokia phone when I changed. I was really happy with the flood fill option it had because there were different patterns and textures instead of just basic colours. The green areas were finger painted onto the screen. It was fun to use and created some interesting effects.
A thicket, overgrown, a hedge tall and wide hiding the house behind it. Who lives there? No sign of movement. The gate locked shut. Curtains and boards up at the windows. Abandoned? Hidden, a haven for birds and wildlife. The smell and calls of foxes. But a house in need of care.
He looked through the hedge and wondered. Where had his family gone? Inheritance had finally happened and he was the only person found. He would start by cutting back the trees and hedges, but gently. He wanted to keep the wildness, but with some flowers and vegetables. It would take time.
He looked for a long time. Yes he could do it. Nature and garden would be in harmony. Life would be preserved and given its chance.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was pressure. This is a strange one. Didn’t know what to draw. Decided on finger pressing a plunger…. Maybe a trumpet valve?
Finger painting with artrage oils. I hope it’s recognisable as pressure.
Drawn in a sketching app. I just used the tools and my finger to draw. There’s a built in wobble from my shaking arm. It’s been erased a few times to remove the most wobbly lines. I like the fact it’s quick and fresh. I like spontaneous line making. I enjoyed making it. X
I made a digital drawing based on the #bandofsketchers prompt of ‘hole’. Used my finger and a symmetry tool to create the pattern, then varied it using photodirector app.
The darker, softer image was the first, the other two were edited in photodirector and the images were duplicated in the Layout app.
