Just an update about my iPad

Hey guess what will be coming back soon: DAILY SKETCHES!! There may be a new iPad, as well as as new stylus and new dodo case in my future. I’ll be upgrading my stylus to a Jot Touch – I hear great things about it with the iPad Air 2  and my favorite drawing app for iPad, Procreate.

Hear that, THIEF! I’VE MOVED ON! I WILL KEEP SKETCHING DIGITALLY, despite your wicked ways! <weeps silently>

I will post when my new buddy (case, iPad, stylus)  is all good and ready, hopefully with a review of my own. There weren’t many reviews for the Jot Touch, at least when it came to what I was interested in knowing.

Aurélien Chevaleyrias – Adonit Jot Touch with Pixelpoint quick review – This review was very informative about the history of how far adonit has come, the actual size of the tip, charging, and much more.

Ben Frank Art – Jot Touch Pixelpoint Review+Procreate : This review was great for showing me what I wanted to see – different brushstrokes, how bad the lag was, the visual distance between the “surface” I was drawing on and the tip of the pen.

Until later!

Daily Sketches 25 – MerBear and Fancy Ponytail

Sorry there were no posts last week. My dayjob in advertising can get demanding, and I had very little time for anything but designing, designing, designing.
I’ll be traveling to a friend’s wedding in a few days, OVERSEAS! I’ll will do my best to keep these sketches daily, but I might have to post them all when I get back – depends on the kind of internet I’ll be able to snag over there.
So, until then, this little guy finds living under the sea unBEARabel without his besties.

And a friend of mine with mystically gorgeous hair allowed me to photograph her majestic ponytail for reference for my DailyObservation.

Daily Sketches 24 – Sunglasses and Magic Hair

Something I really enjoy about pressure sensitivity with the intuos stylus, is drawing wisps of hair.

Its true. They are broken. And scratched. I have other sunglasses that are newer, easier to see through…and not broken. Yet I still grab these before heading off to the train. Today they modeled for me. No previous experience, and they stayed perfectly still!

Daily Sketches 23 – Character Art and Hand Portait

More character sketches from the land of the Muertita. After I get some proper character turnarounds for these guys they will be formally introduced to you. But for now these are some mood sketches. Everything is so different when out on paper…er…on pixels. I’m already thinking of little redesigns.

A sketch of my hand again. Its still just as hard to draw it as it was 23 days ago. Maybe it will get easier after 360 days.

Daily Sketches 22 – Bystander and Muertita-verse

I took the sketch from a previous Daily Imagination and colored it. This is a scene from the land of the Muertita.

An innocent bystander on the train, who was quite displeased with the email he was writing.

Daily Observation And Daily Imagination 20

In the land of the Muertita, the characters take a stroll. Maybe this could be a process post, I might try and finish this one.

A man on the train had a beautiful beard and cheekbones. It was quite a challenge not to catch his attention by drawing him.

Daily Observation And Daily Imagination 19

I need some rechargeable batteries for my wacom creative stylus. These sketches were finished without any pressure sensitivity, so it felt like I was using a blunt instrument. You know what doesn’t run out of batteries? A PENCIL. Grrrr.

Still…despite how much I love traditional media, drawing on the iPad has an amazing benefit. It was VERY nice to be able to lean back on the couch in a soothingly dim room. I could draw comfortably and still see my screen. I really enjoyed that. It makes drawing after a draining day a bit easier. Until of course the batteries died, I ran out of spares, and the stylus was no better than using my finger.

Heads up – my daily sketches might not be as daily as I prepare for my Solo Show in Burbank November 8, and Group Show at Hollywood Forever Nov 1. I will do my best, but they will be getting erratic.

Now for more hair bows! Spending time figuring out how I want them to sit on my characters head. Also showing you the photo that got me obsessed.
