Odd tuxedo on green

April 27, 2016

A Matisse-like cubism. Made with the earlier version of Tayasui Sketches. The new version has some interesting new brushes, and as I was browsing the gallery I noticed this, which seems a bit more interesting than when I did it.

I don’t pop into Sketches very often. Like most of the other painting apps, it seems a bit more choosy-delay at first. When one has the, really not so difficult inclination to sit and actually draw, many apps respond to that kind of, well, I’m going to sit down and make something now, kind of time. Rather like a sketchbook and a dedicated desk.

This isn’t a problem. Procreate and Sketches and so many other apps intend this kind of action. It isn’t a negative, but Paper, for instance, hasnt’t lost the spontaneity of launching into a useful space that responds to an idea-whim.

Interesting difference.

Auryn ink watercolour direct brutal drawing and scrubbing away at erasing. I wish the app had a more sensitive eraser, sponge, or tissue mode to erase or pick up too much colour.

Update: in the interim, the developer of Auryn Ink has indeed added a more sensitive softer eraser option. Very nice.

Back to the masters.

Albrecht Dürer 1490 Portrait of the Artists Father from Uffizi catalog pg 166. I go back to this catalog to draw a few things that catch my eye, and shame, no, rather challenge myself. :-) as there is just no way I can make realistic drawings.

Poking my drawing finger into Concepts app. I have many. Many are neglected and not drawn in. Some are kept for specific tools or effects. Some get pokes every once in a while. and just like there are many shades of users, Concepts is well named, as it seems well suited to designers.

It’s like a condo timeshare.

The gravity of clouds

April 8, 2016

A time-lapse scene
of clouds
sweeping in like waves and water
against a mountain coastline.

There really is no difference
between clouds and water
except for density and time.

And the edge, the border, the density,
all just a matter of gravity
and the passing of time.

The nature of the entire universe;
time and gravity
are not different.
A fog,
a surrounding soup of air,
a distant singularity,
there is no difference but time and gravity.
The borders and edges we only see
From our own self contained time and gravity

Four cats. One box lid.

Tuxedo cat and paw

April 6, 2016

Okay. I think I got it.  A number of other in-process, well, maybe they were done, but, oh, I don’t know versions are viewable at samupressart Tumblr. All in various stages of goodness. But I think this one balances all the tricks quite nicely.

I think this is maybe finally done. Procreate, Popsicolor, and bunch of other apps. Maybe not. That black is too…. too…… black.

Calico cat

Made with Auryn Ink. Silly, but it’s really odd having to wait for the paint to dry.
