iPad Tuesdays

I make it so late from work that I only have time to grab the iPad before flying to my figure drawing sessions of Tuesday. Still fun :)

Doodling Distortions

My face is getting wrinkled and my hairline is starting to look funky, which is good because it makes it easier to caricature. I doodled this in Photoshop while the kitchen floor was drying after moping it :)

Fashion design is Character Design

I'm lucky to work in Newbury Street in Boston, because I get to see cool outfits in the fancy boutiques and some are very inspiring :)

50 iPhone mini-sketches

I love drawing people in the train, but unfortunately, my schedule and location make it so I never get a seat! Drawing careful sketches on my notebook while standing is out of the question, so I've been using a simple painting application on my phone instead. This is good in a way, because it is forcing me to be very straightforward. The constant shuffling of my fellow passengers getting in and out prevents me from looking at anyone for too long. I have just a  few seconds to capture an impression and move on, sometimes not getting anything more than a silhouette.

Here we have 50 quick drawings of the beautiful people of Boston. More to come :)

Edit: the iPhone app I used is called Brushes (here is the link: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/brushes-3/id545366251?mt=8)

Tuesdays, now with iPad

Today I tried the iPad for the figure session. I am also reading Andrew Loomis' The Eye of the Painter and while I wasn't necessarily thinking of any specific approach, It definitely seemed interesting to mix the color fields idea with a cartoony take for the subject. Fun times :)

I am to busy to do anything of ambition right now, so here we have more sketches :)
