These are the digital drawings I produced at the centre recently. I was worried for sometime that I had lost these but Bruce was awesome and recovered the drive. He's changed around how the computers boot - if no network is found it boots to public on its own machine. This is going to be helpful if the system ever dies like it did this week.
I did not sleep well last night. Finally got to sleep at 5am. At 4ish I got out of bed and produced several digital drawings. Completing 4 of them - I was tired and could sleep. In the morning I slept in and got into Mothers work mid morning. Oil Pastel and a little paint was the focus today. I've taken photos of the works and will get them uploaded.
When I returned home tonight I produced several more digital drawings:
I can't sleep so got up and uploaded several digital drawings I did yesterday. It was an excellent day - Morning started with good news for a friend.
I got into the community centre early - 1:30pm. I spent the next hour digital drawing people on RedditGetsDrawn. Sadly we had our /home directory die tonight before I had uploaded the images. He may be able to recover them - terrible day for the centre computers.
Anyway, once I got home tonight I produced several drawings, went to bed (couldn't sleep). Got up and created several more.
Here are some results:
Three works for Tuesday morning. I've continued with just line - no gray-scale or color tonal layers.
One suggestion I had from my Sister was to use a range of different colors with the line - to separate and define objects. This worked well - I used a dark green for the grass areas in the painting. Dark blue for the sky and water, and a light yellow for skin tones. The red acts as a base. I'll continue experimenting with a range of colors in the line.
Very sleepy right now but had a great evening with the drawing. I have a three monitor setup - on my main samsung: gimp in full screen. On the small square monitor to the left: photo reference. Laptop: Hulu (usually films). I have a headset that I use for the films. Would like to add speaker and pandora radio to the mix. Here are digital drawings from the day:
I slept in a little today but awoke and painted. I am very happy about the tablet and the results im getting. I've been unable to produce gray-scale and color layers yet. I may just take these images onto my phone and color them with sketchbook pro.
I lost my sketchbook when I was in Auckland. I need to buy a new one - a5 will be fine.
Here are some more drawings
It's been a long time since I have updated artcontrol.me with some artwork. I have myself a new tablet so my plan is to work on more art and upload it. For a long time I was updating this site every two or so days. I've slacked off in this and other projects. I have my code which has been going well.
Here is the result from the new tablet and drawing people on RedditGetsDrawn. I am happy with the tablet. Small, but I get the result. I use to own an intous5 medium which was a little too large. The small fits me fine.
Happy I had no problems with the linux drivers also - it was all plug and go. We installed the drivers on the machines at the center - so have it working there.
