A Big Ginger Pollock

10 Aug



Back to the ‘up-yer-nose’ digital drawings and here’s someone with a great big ginger beard. Magnificent. The chickens are part of the wallpaper. They don’t live on his head. I drew onto my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app, laying on a beige ground to start with then building up layers of colour and texture with a stylus and my finger, the stylus gives a much firmer, more defined line. I did a lot of the texture in his beard with my left hand (I’m right handed) which gave much more wobbly, quirky lines, a bit like a Jackson Pollock. Sparta Puss was rubbing her face against my right hand because she wanted to be smoothed. So what can you do?

    The chickens work. Of course Sparta puss wanted your attention, you were doing something else!

    He looks pan-esque. He should consider adding chickens to his head permanently
