The dining room table was cleared for a day or so. And we haven’t napped there yet. So it must be done.

That Tom! I know he’s out here!

It’s like a condo timeshare.

Four cats. One box lid.

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 feel better. I took my meds. And that other stray Tom is out there to beat up. So you have to let me outside. Oh, wait it’s raining. Crap. I guess I’ll stay in and bother you. Until I forget that its raining.

A long-haired queen tuxedo cat, born in a window well, she always looks maniacally alert because she thinks everything is going to eat her. Domesticated enough that she has a home to shed in.

Made with Auryn Ink, a watercolour simulation app. The interface is odd, but, okay… I’m beginning to see how it works. I like the new smooth paper surfaces.

Something ages old from Procreate. I was testing some integration from Paper, as I do like the fat pen tool, but Procreate has some nice chalks and charcoals.
Returning to it, it looked more interesting than I remembered. A few more charcoal smudges and it’s not too bad.

One is 23. One is 19.
Something I rarely do is paint from a photo, but this scene was likely going to change quickly. So, yes, I traced over the photo for the figure and forms, otherwise completely digitally hand painted free form. No filters, no sampling.

Just futzing around with importing something into Paper. That patch of orange colour has been run through numerous filters. Anyway, this is also an experiment to see if this image, sized elsewhere will appear ridiculously larger than necessary here.

A quiet, dim corner, pale late evening light.
Hmmm…. is there no way to limit the size of images so they fit? Where is it?
UPDATE : The WordPress app provides a touch tap system to set a few fixed sizes. They don’t seem to successfully apply when updated. On the desktop through the browser, you need to use coarse large movement tools, like a trackpad or mouse to drag the corner of the image to overly precise scaling numbers. Neither tool works adequately.

This app has some subtle brushes, and even as the colour choices are limited to red and black, inasmuch as I might like some other colours, the occasional and forced restraint yields wonderful drama.
