Almost There.....

Almost There

Yes I have been playing in the finger paints again....well the virtual ones.

I should be showing you my ATC cards that have to go out in the mail by Monday. My problem is I don't like them. I need to learn how to develop a drawing from life. Not just a sketch, a full drawing. The ATCs for this trade are from life drawings of everyday things. I like working from a photo. I have no problem supplying that photo from my own camera. In which case the work is mine. (as per the debate going on). Yet the camera obviously sees different than me, since I am having such a hard time with this. Which I guess just means I need much more practice drawing from back to the drawing board!

Finger painting....

Spring Pond
11x8-72 pixels/inch

Just doing some finger painting via PhotoFiltre. You can put colour down on the page then use the little hand with the finger sticking out to spread it around. Almost as fun as the real thing. The clean up was definitely better!

Self portrait.....

Jeanette, over at Illustrated Life, set up a portrait challenge with a twist , over at Drawspace. This is my line drawing for it. I know I'm scarier looking than you all thought I would be.LOL The twist was that it should not be the average view of yourself. I think I fulfilled that! I did cheat a bit, I posterized the picture I was working from. My inspiration level has been low so I wanted to just jump in and get going. This was still about an hours worth of work.
