Sketch Nr 8 - Dad

A soft one, done in middle values.
I might work more on this one later, but for now it feels right...

Pencil tool in the app "ArtRage"

Sketch Nr 7

More grayscale and shading - like using a soft pencil or charcoal.

Sketch Nr 6 - Handsome

Grayscale and shading. Pencil tool in the app "ArtRage" - tilted tip, light pressure, soft graphite.
I quite like the result.

Sketch Nr 5 - very loose...

Definitely loose, I'd say a bit messy. The joys of a 'moving target' and little time...
Back to the app "Paper by FiftyThree". The watercolor brush adds the lively color, and like with real watercolor the result can be quite blotchy.

Sketch Nr 4 - Twice as nice

Today I practiced cross-hatching. Again on the iPad with the app "ArtRage" - although I really wanted to switch to the actual sketchbook and pencil, I kept going.

And since you can save your work at any point and continue working on a copy, I though I'd show you both the black & white version as well as the next step, with color added.

Which one do you prefer?

Sketch Nr 3 - Omar S.

Again, inspired by one of those great classic movies... again David Lean, but this time "Dr. Zhivago". I know, it's really kitsch-y but once every few years...!

And again, made with "ArtRage" on iPad. This time I discovered the palette knive - almost as much fun as actually moving point on your canvas. But I still prefer the real thing.

Sketch Nr 2 - Sis

Another sketch - again digital, but this time made with "ArtRage" on iPad.This is more of a full-fledged painting app, you can choose from a dozend different tools, different pre-sets, even customize the paper or canvas you're sketching on and define your own color pallet.

To get used to the tools, I started with the pencil again, sketching and tracing the most important features. Then moved on to a mix of brush (oil and some watercolor), a little bit of pen and - airbrush. So today I shouldn't be surprised the outcome has this 'soft filter' look again, should I?
