I drew and painted Hildur from Sktchy App with her bunny three different ways. First I sketched her in pencil on paper then painted her in gouache and then did a digital rendition in Procreate. Which do you like better?
I was simplifying shapes in Procreate and decided to leave off her facial features.
Which do you like better, the colored version above or the one in blue “pencil” below? These are lumpy lemons from the interior of my lemon tree where they’ve been growing unnoticed to nearly the size of oranges, plus other random stuff on the table as I found it.
Below is the original “pencil” sketch in blue. I accidentally drew this with Procreate’s hard airbrush instead of my usual favorite sketching pencil, the Brush Up Ultimate Pencil (didn’t check what brush it was set on until it was too late).
It’s fun drawing random stuff that ends up on the table. This time it is old bottles used as vases that held hydrangeas, a bottle cap, silicone tea cozy, emory board and garlic.
Usually when I draw in Procreate on the iPad I start with a “pencil” sketch and then color it by using the selection tool to draw a shape, then fill the selection using the eye dropper/paint bucket tool. Above is the colored sketch and below is the digital pencil sketch I colored.
Above is my lovely plastic skull replica I named Morton Skullman with a bouquet of hydrangeas from my garden in my grannie’s milk glass vase. I’m continuing to experiment with simplifying light and dark and abstraction.
LOL! I just realized that Morton’snickname, “Mort” means “DEAD” in French!
Below is Mort with a cantaloupe that’s bigger than his head and below that is Mortie wearing Grandpa Simon’s old fez from his days as a Mason.
I was really tired when I sketched this so it came out as tired and boring as I felt. That’s the great thing about Procreate and the iPad: Even when I’m too tired to paint I can still have fun and draw and paint.
