A Quick Nude

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop and I did this on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (8 inch) using a free Markers app. The pose was 25 minutes long. Very tricky foreshortening, really hard.

With this app, I need to put in a solid background before drawing so I usually lay down an opaque white ground with my finger and then overlay with a translucent light grey and then a translucent beige and finish off with an airbrush white. Then I switch to the stylus and start to scribble. If you don’t put in a background, when you save it, you get weird stuff going on like the background goes black and some of the drawing switches to negative. Then you have top export it into something like Adobe Photoshop to correct it. It took me a while to work that one out. Much easier to lay in a background colour.
