Face

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.

Personal Horizon

With only a few exceptions this is one of my “continuous-line” drawings. My hunch is that the screen protector, finger grease, and my cheapo-stylus-nub team up and cause what I’m calling “intra-line outages.” I just may peel off the screen protector that was automatically applied to the new screen that I recently got, when I dropped and cracked my iPad screen. At any rate, I felt like doing one of these continuous-line drawings knowing that I had this linus interruptus phenomenon goin’ on; so, it is what it is.
