Working in layers. I got that figured out. This came out a little flat looking. It is a better resemblance,
even though on the cubist side.

taking out the ipod to sketch...

Time to post some more.I am taking a class. I have a hard time listening
 so I take time to sketch.

ipod brushes drawing from life...

Was looking for something real to draw. There it was... a friend's dog.

Out of my imagination...

Time for another ipod drawing post.
This is a brainiac type character I drew out of my imagination.

Went to a house concert where a friend was playing...

It's been awhile since my last post. I went to a house concert where a friend was playing with his very good band.  I just happened to have my ipod in my pocket at the right time. Just messing around with the color here. Jeff Wilkinson & The Shutterdogs is the band. Check them out on itunes or wherever.

Drawing during game time.

I get a little bored waiting for my turn. So I tried to draw the things on the table while I listened.
We had fun playing Balderdash here. Or was it Pictionary?

Drawing during game time.

 During game time there were a variety of drinks to draw.

Drawing on my cup

 ©Arnie Ten 2012
On my way home after a busy day. Loading the groceries into the car, I rested my cup on top of the car. It was an uphill run for the little guy. Didn't forget him.

Ipod Touch Brushes Art

©Arnie Ten 2012
When I draw on the ipod touch, I just use my finger. This time I tried out drawing with a stylus.
I know people complain about their fat fingers when they draw on touch screens. I thought I would at least try a stylus which I got for the ipad's larger screen. The small screen is challenging but you can pinch the screen to magnify a small area to work on.

Drawing at the Cafe

©Arnie Ten 2012

I drew this during lunch last week. There is a cafe where I work that is a good place to hide in a corner and draw. This was drawn on an ipod touch using the brushes app. I am still drawing with my finger here.  I have a stylus that I sometimes use at home.

In April we went to Bridgton, Maine. We were staying at All Moosed Home, a friend's lakeside vacation home. We had a relaxing afternoon on Moose Pond. This is where I sketched this scene in my sketchbook.  ©Arnie Ten 2012

This morning I drew a picture on my coffee cup as is my usual workday routine.
Here is what it looked like...

I sketched a face two separate times. This was last week.

This was today. Interesting. Last week was a better likeness.

This is one I sketched this weekend. I like the way the movie I exported from the brushes app gives the  viewer a sense of looking over the artist's shoulder. The drawing is kind of a caricature, I guess, of  the same person in my earlier post. Digital art like this is interesting to try out. It wastes no paper but leaves one with out a collectible piece of art. There is not as much fear of the white page as well.

Okay. So I have an older one that I did on vacation. I was staring at the floor in search of inspiration.
Gazing down I found it. This is another brushes app drawing. 


This is a movie that the brushes app makes of the creative process.

Here is the drawing by itself.
