Two more pieces also with Procreate

These two are something a bit different, the first is from a basic demo on sighting and measuring from a summer program for high school students that I teach every year for the college. The second is from a class field trip to the Divine Comedy exhibition that featured forty different African artists interpreting the work through drawing, painting, film, installations and photography. I actually combined two of my favorite pieces into the second image.

More Procreate figure work

Here's some more from another session, Procreate has some really great default tools that you can adjust and save, most of these are one to two minute poses.

Some other digital figure drawing

These were done with The Procreate App on an iPad with a Wacom Creative Stylus. It's my go to drawing app when I'm using a tablet like this. All of these are thirty to sixty seconds.

More Costumed Model Drawing!

So again, the same basic process with starting with quick gestures to warm up.

After the warm ups, we then worked with twenty minute poses and again I talked through my process as I did this demo for the class, this time specifically talking about how to use the spacing settings on the brushes menu to create pattern brushes with just the basic default brushes. 

Of course the students are actively working as well, it's all about practice with what is for many of them, a totally new media.

Session Three will be up next week from these will be up next week!

Costumed Model Drawing

Time to post some of my newest figure drawing, these were done with Adobe Photoshop on a Cintiq as part of my Digital Drawing class. Each day this past week we started with some warm up gestures.

Then it's time for some twenty minute poses, during this time I'm explaining my thought process, how I'm using the tools in the program and demonstrating different approaches to drawing the clothed figure.

I'll be posting the other sessions as they happen!

Another Self Portrait

Not quite finished, I'll repost this once it's done but I definitely wanted to do something different than the last one!
