Another of my digital drawings, and variations by using filters.
I tend to try different filters to see what the results are. Can you flip the image? Change the background? Alter the hue, colours, brightness, contrast, size, sharpness, solidity, edges.. Make a change, if you don’t like it click the back button, or save it and put another filter over it. When I had photoshop I used all sorts of filters that I don’t have now. But what I have on this small phone is so much more than I had on one of my early smart phones. You just have to try it out.
These images are about four years old. Drawn in sketcher free, then altered in another app that I don’t have anymore after changing phones. I wanted to get a feeling of printing, maybe a monoprint or an etching. I like doing things in one app then playing about with it in another. That way you get more effects than using just one digital application. I want to do more with other filters. I’m thinking of downloading other art apps.
I’m trying sketching in an app called sketcher free, it’s interesting drawing with textured pens, but it’s not easy to control. This is drawn on a tablet, so the format of wordpress is different in it, not wordpress classic. I’m not sure this is going to work. Anyway you only learn by having a go at things, if you don’t try you never know if you can do it. I’ve found the categories tab but I can’t find the sharing tab . So at least I’m doing something , still not feeling well.
Each of these drawings were done slightly differently. The first and third in ArtRage app and the middle one used a photo which was drawn on with Sketcher free app.
Faces are interesting to draw, the first two are from life, the third is imagined. I’ve tried using free flowing pens and different textures backgrounds. Colours are tending towards the blue/green end of the spectrum.
I also thought about which side light falls on a face. I usually draw with light coming from the top right if I’m imagining an image, or from whichever direction it comes from if it’s from life.
I’ve got a new tablet and I’ve merrily been uploading some of the apps I used to use. This one was called sketcher free. I played with the various pens in the app and tried to create something a bit more abstract to how I normally draw.
I was also trying out different colours, vaguely graffitiish if that’s a word! Its exciting to experiment with art.
