Some of my favorite finished drawings. The overwhelming majority were created on phone or tablet.

This started with practicing a knotwork pattern from Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction, and ended up as an exercise in how long I could add stuff before I got bored. Thirteen hours. Not bad. Not in a row, of course. Oh and I threw in a couple tangle elements from The Tangles of Kells. I might be ready to try drawing things on purpose again. Usually it’s just that my hands get itchy when I see blank space.

The other night I went out, and brought my iPad. Sketching calms me when sitting in a public space. This is the final version of a doodle started that night. I get nervous about color, but decided this time to relax a bit and enjoy myself. The result pleases me.

Thought I’d make a picture with the right aspect ratio for my desktop. Used Infinite Painter’s radial symmetry tool for most of the linework, then over to finish up with color and shade in Procreate.

Started with the perspective tools in Procreate, then wandered over to Infinite Painter which has a spattery ink brush that I enjoy. To be honest, I don’t really see the spatter effect much in this picture. Lesson learned, I guess.

Mostly an exerise in light, shadow, and patience. I noticed recently that I run out of attention for a sketch after 45 minutes or so unless I’m particularly focused. For this I specifically worked in 45 minute blocks over the course of a week.

I was so unhappy with my attempts to draw realistic pictures of my friend Rainy that I went in the complete opposite direction and drew her in sort of a chibi style.
