No Fooling Around

Posted 4 days ago

It's time to get myself in gear. I will have to draw Fast at tomorrow's Event. Huge place with thousands of people. I can't be trying to redevelop myself. I won't have time to reinvent the wheel.

So it's back to the way I have been successfully drawing at Events already. And we'll see if my recent Cartoony studies might affect some of them.

To warm up, I redrew a few of the Caricatures that I previously drew at Events. And I even looked up The Dark Knight online ~ Not that I would ever use a different artist's character at an event ~ but I felt like I should familiarize myself with him. Because of some of the things that I had been told about tomorrow's event.

Note: as always, if I draw more than one face in a Caricature, it doesn't necessarily mean that the people know each other. I pick them at random.

Easy Fun

Posted 5 days ago

I drew this boy because I have a gig coming up this weekend where I will be drawing alongside my new Agent. I felt like I should drop my current intense studies, to make sure I will be ready to bring Easy Fun to the Event.

The reference picture was from some sort of a contest.

I finally passed my High School test

Posted 7 days ago

Well..... that's being a little facetious (a word that I learned when studying for my SAT's)..... but it sounded right tonight. Because I'm not sure if I was practicing the new style that I have been developing for the past week, Or if I was just finally able to draw what I used to try to draw back when I was in high school.

Either way, I feel like it's a Fun style to bring to Parties. I was drawing new Caricatures of people that I previously drew (posted elsewhere on this blog):

Btw, I did No Predraw. And I didn't even randomly choose the 2nd face to draw in each picture until I was Finished drawing the first one. That's not usually the way I draw. I felt amazed that it worked out.

The Artist should be Drawing for Herself

Posted 9 days ago

The Artist should be drawing for herself. Or else she's just a hack. She here I am again. Drawing and drawing and drawing and drawing in my Time Off. Even though my previous style already works just fine at Events.

But here I am still learning my new style. I arbitrarily chose a photo of a woman that I previously drew just fine at a Party. I felt Blocked against using my new style tonight, but I made it through to Success.

I lost the first picture I drew ~ trying the new style. Came out crummy anyway. Maybe it's just not my Zone for this moment. Another part of Artwork besides trying new things ~ is to Not Force It. Comes out best if I do what's working. So i put myself onto Uninspired Automatic. Feh.

Nope. So I went back to my original reason for drawing on my time-off. Nope ~ this isn't what I'm looking for. The next one was really getting away from me. Then an ugly picture. That's not right. Then perky, but wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Am I really just drawing the same Incorrect choices over and over? Stop. Look again. Come up with something different. I started the circle thing. Got it right the 2nd time. Pretty good Caricature, but I sure hope I would never draw anything like that at a Party. It would get a good laugh, but that's not who I am. It's not what I want to do.

I want to help people accept themselves with all their idiocyncracies, and feel thrilled with themselves ~ just the way they really are. I like clean, energetic drawings. My final drawing here: Success
