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

In Transition

Posted 12 days ago

I am developing a great Happy Party style for my Caricatures. In transition, and feeling quite Successful. Here's today's journey. I was making New Caricatures based on photos of people that I previously Caricatured. btw, the people that I put together in today's drawings don't necessarily know each other. I just chose photos at random ~ to practice Group Caricatures:

Ready to jump in. I remembered how great it felt for the pictures to just pour out for the past few days. No Predraw. But I didn't think about the size for the first face I drew. I didn't leave room for the other two that I planned to put into the picture. Aghk. I couldn't wait to finish. Pushing it. I'm just going to

Stop:

Tried it again. Planning to size them 'evenly. But egads, What happened here:

Sized evenly. Decent Caricatures. But meaningless empty space on the paper:

This time, I gave in to a Predraw. Just a Litl bit of a Predraw:

Success: Excellent Caricature:

I really should call it a night. But once more. One more group Caricature. It came out alright:

Tried it Again. I love it! This is the New Style I want to develop. Such a happy picture. If these people happened to be a family, they would have loved to have such a unique picture:

I have transitioned. I can develop this new style.

But how to apply today's studies to my Party Performance?

I'm figuring that I would Not use a predraw for One Or Two Faces on a page. But I Would use that slight amount of placement predraw for Three Or More Faces on a page.

and of course, it would be best if I draw in the style that is working at that moment. Gotta be in a Zone to draw well. If I'm hoping to use this style when I'm 'On', perhaps it would be a good idea to do a few warm-up pictures Before I go in to an Event.

Simplified Caricature

Posted Sep 2021

Egads. No sooner than I develop that Nose idea, than I feel intrigued to try something else. Completely different. Has nothing to do with the last thing I had been studying.

This time I felt intrigued by some simple shape ideas. I like the clean happy fun answers of what to draw. I decided ot try it based on random photos that I found online.

My very first attempt came out great. This is what I was looking for.

Tried it again, Came out good. But this time ~ as is usually tempting for me ~ I went into to much details.

So I decided to Simplify the next face:

So easy. Could I do this at Parties and Events? Dare I? And once again, what about the 'pretty' one?

It's always something ~

Backyard Bat Mitzvah

Posted Aug 2021

Pleasant backyard Bat Mitzvah. I just wish the sun wasn't in the girls' eyes ~ because faces do look different when the guests squint. Still, a good time was had by all.

Here are a few of the Caricatures that I drew at the Bat Mitzvah:
