The Continuous Line Kitty

I’ve been neglecting my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet recently. It has a free drawing app on it, one called ‘Markers’ that I really like using but haven’t done so for weeks. I’ve got a bit of a cold and I’m slobbing out on the settee and it was easier to reach for my tablet rather than go and rummage around for a sketchbook and drawing materials. The cat’s slobbing out on the settee next to me so she was an obvious target – I mean subject – and I carried on using the continuous line technique that I’ve been practicing a lot lately.

The Nights Draw In…

More digital kitty. It’s nice drawing the curtains on the dark as we rapidly approach the longest night, it’s dark around teatime now. Sparta Puss likes hanging out with us, dozing on her pouffé with a crocheted blanket. It’s an easy option to scribble her while she snoozes. I’m using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a free app called Markers.

It’s cold and dark outside and the curtains are drawn and Sparta Puss has settled down to do some grooming in comfort. So I grabbed the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet and did a quick scribble using a free Markers app.

Marc, Frank And Victoria (Sandwich)

I’m back in the house for about 20 minutes between hearing the marvellous artist Marc Rees give a talk at the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery about his upcoming art extravaganza “Now The Hero / Nawr Yr Arwr” and heading off to life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet (which I used to do this drawing) and a Victoria Sandwich. As you do.

Marc spoke in front of a backdrop of projected images, including many of the glorious panels by Frank Brangwyn, which are an integral part of Nawr Yr Arwr, so he’s in silhouette. I had to have a scribble. It’s what I do….

A Long Day

I had a long day today, it was good but tiring so I’ll tell you about it tomorrow. Here’s one of the drawings I did, this one is a digital drawing on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app.

 

 

Resting On My Knee

26 Aug

This is the eleventh of my “Up Yer Nose” series of digital drawings. I start by taking a digital photo of my victims …. er …. volunteers …. then I look at the photo on my phone, resting on my knee, while I draw freehand into my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app. I don’t download the photo into the app and then draw on top. I tried that once, years ago, and it looks weird. It takes away my interpretation and my style and just looks fake. And it doesn’t really teach me anything or give me valid practice. Drawing from scratch takes a lot longer but it’s more satisfying and I prefer the result.

 

 

Daisy Dawg

Greetings apes. Sparta Puss here. The she-monkey that I share my house with has been cheating on me with a dog called Daisy. A DOG! They’re as smelly as apes and even more stupid.

 

 

The Laughing Squirrel

Hello Bald Apes. Sparta Puss here. Those lazy trained monkeys of mine have left the pooter box alone AGAIN. They’re too busy watching the noisybox in the corner with stuff running around inside it. Sometimes there are squirrels inside the noisybox. I like that, but by the time I get around to taking a swipe at them, they’re gone. I look behind the noisybox for them, but they’re never there. I don’t know how they do it but the she-monkey said that squirrels are meant to be very intelligent. The man-ape disagrees. He got bit by a squirrel once and he hates them. She-monkey says it was his own fault. He offered a peanut to a squirrel and didn’t throw it on the floor, he kept hold of it and the stroppy squirrel bit his finger and he dropped the peanut and the squirrel grabbed the nut (it was a monkey nut coincidentally) and ran off. He said it was laughing and punching the air. I’m not sure that I believe him. He’s an idiot.

 

Up Yer Furry Nose

Greetings Hairless Apes. Sparta Puss here. My trained monkeys have left the pooter box unattended so I thought I’d give you the benefit of my wisdom. Even though I know it won’t be of much use, you’re just a bunch of simians, after all.

The idiot she-monkey, the one who does the scribbling, has been doing drawings of other monkeys, but at an odd position, up their noses. That’s how I see you lot most of the time, so it’s not odd to me. So she just did this one of me. I must say, I look much better from this angle than you bald monkeys. Here are the other ones she’s done so far, the ginger one’s making a decent attempt at growing fur….

A Fleeting Moment

16 Aug

Our facial expressions are generally made up of continuous movements and a photograph captures just one fleeting moment amongst many. So when you base a drawing on a photograph, the image might look a bit odd, or not like the person normally looks. I’m pushing this by taking photos of people with their heads thrown back, up their noses, but this one has a great big laugh to draw as well.

I d took the digital photo on my phone and then I drew from it, using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app. I laid down a beige ground and worked on top. I mislaid the stylus half way through and had to continue with my fingers, which made it quite spotty.
