Tired

Just a black and white sketch of a face which I then did a small edit on through the photodirector app.

Yes I am a bit tired. But this is more about trying to draw emotions without a reference image. I can see a lot of mistakes, particularly where I’ve mirrored the image. The nose does not sit right, the shading is wrong. But I like using cross hatching. I like thin pens. I don’t think its too bad.

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.

Edited portrait of Stephen Hawking

I uused an app called photoeditor to change the character of this digital drawing. The style option changes the line work and makes it look more standardised if that makes sense? It seems to smooth things out and tidy them up although it adds extra lines into the drawing.

I used sketcher free app to do the initial drawing. It’s relatively like using pencil and crayons, you get different options of drawing tools.

I admired Stephen Hawking, he was a brilliant physicist and had amazing knowledge. I wish more people appreciated scientists.

A limerick to creativity

2020-08-08-17-31-37

With this app I will play

Make new images every day

Make my whiskers go all spikey

Make your love much more likely

Art is fun, is what I say!

Not sure if I’ve got the limerick right, it rhymes the same for the first two lines and the last line, and the third and fourth rhyme too. But I’m not sure it fits the rhythm of a limerick…

Da da dah da dah da da dadada (lines one, two and five)

and – Da da da dah da (lines three and four).

For instance, this is more recognisably a limerick:

There once was a cat had a fishery

It ate all the perch and the chicory,

It hadn’t a clue

What it needed to do

So it went into debt and to bankruptcy?

Although it doesn’t make much sense! But then again limericks don’t have to, they are often nonsense verse. For instance Lewis Carrol whose real name was Charles Dodson. Anyway strange post I guess…
