Bug in Parking Lot

Bug in Parking Lot

A couple of weeks ago I walked out of yoga class and saw a shinny green bug in the parking lot. I pulled out my iPhone and snapped this shot. After drawing the VW bug in Procreate on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, I simply didn’t feel like drawing the other cars and all that. So I stoped there, saved the image, opened it in iColorama, and did some tweaking. Then I brought it back into Procreate for some final touches.

I realized, once I finished Bug in the Parking Lot, that this is how I saw it with post-yoga oxygenated eyes!

Yesterday a co-member of the Mobile Artists Collective, a Facebook group that I belong to, posted an image that intrigued me so much that I felt I had to try drawing it myself, and luckily, Janis Bradenburg Lee gave me permission to use her image as a reference for a digital drawing and to share a little background on the image that she posted. Here’s my rendition of Janis’ image as drawn in Procreate:

And here’s the image that Janis created in iColorama and Repox and posted:

As I mention to Janis when I contacted her to request permission for me to use her image as a reference for a drawing and to post all this on my illustroblog, what she had crafted and posted called my attention for a variety of reasons, but mainly because of the colors, expression, and effects. I hope to do more like this.
