Tension

tensionIllustration Friday challenge Рtension. I got the idea from taking Molly for a walk[?], so there are two types of tension here Рthe dog pulling on the lead and the mental tension from it. She is cute though, see below.

I used my new Letraset Aquamarkers for this [an alternative to watercolours]. I think I need a bit more practice with them and probably need to spend more time on a painting than I did here.

Playing with Brushes

Sketch302231611I have been playing around with the brushes on Sketchbook Pro, the app I got for my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

And below, I painted [on the Note] the head and put it on the big cat image from the Naturalist’s Library. I think I started out with the intention of drawing the head of a bear but it doesn’t look much like one. The image from the Naturalist Library is a hybrid between a lion and tigress, the head I have painted is what a hybrid of a bear and tiger would look like.

Echinacea Flowers

sbpro1I got a new App for my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the Sketchbook Pro drawing software and this is my first saved drawing. Not brilliant but I quite like it and I like the app so far. I have seen a couple of tutorials on the net, but they don’t give a lot of instructions and they wizz thru the demonstration, my poor little brain cannot keep up.
