Digital Dame

By in digital, heads, women

Digital painting, on the bigger computer again. Trying to do what’s called “glazing,” using my “natural brushes.”

This is sort of a test, in that I’m trying to post something via photos I took with the iPad. Sadly, there are a few things I haven’t figured out, but this is good enough for the time being.

Star Wars-ian Portraits

By in black and white, Gouache, heads, pen and ink, pencil, Portraits, sketches, women

Of characters whose names all begin with “L,” apparently.

Pencil Portraits

By in heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I’m actually not fond of drawing from photos, because to me it feels too limiting. However, it’s a good way to improve the practice, and see some new aspects of anatomy, rather than simply drawing things which have worked for me before. Here, I’ve been looking at heads as shapes in space, made up of […]

Star Wars, etc.

By in black and white, color, heads, paintings, Portraits, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Posting various sketches I’ve been doing. Mainly to do with the new “Star Wars” movie, which I finally saw, and “Emma” by Jane Austen. Star Wars had some pleasant new characters, but it was basically a rehash of the same old plot. I mean where did they find the time and materials to build a […]

Doot Doot

By in color, digital, heads

Feeling uninspired, which might be clear from this image. But at least my digital technique is getting better. Things seem to go up and down. I should really be doing watercolours, but I need better self-motivation.

Two Faces

By in Coloured Pencils, heads, pencil, Portraits, sketches

I guess using the flash on the little camera makes these things look too light.

Goths

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, brush pen, heads, pen and ink, sketches

Neil Smith Doodle

By in black and white, brush pen, heads, men, sketches

For someone who draws as many faces as I do, I find it hard to hit a likeness. But I’m happy with this little face of author Neil Smith I doodled in the margin of the Esplanade Editions book catalog. That glossy paper is very comfortable to draw on with the pentel brush pen. Hope […]

Digital Dalliance

By in color, digital, heads, women

I hope I’m not wasting my time trying to paint digitally. My line, which I think looks nice enough in watercolour or little pen and ink drawings, to me doesn’t look so appealing in digital. Still, this post gives me hope. It’s from a “famous” digital artist, discussing how her drawing has improved over the […]
