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.woman walking the shores of Ireland Woman in snow, mud on hand Short girl, tall guy. grass and trees in background.
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. Enjoy -
