IPhone Sketches

Here are three more. These were done on the IPhone with the Zen Brush app. I really enjoy the simplicity of it. You simply deal with size, and brush type. There are only three shades, plus an eraser. However, there are a couple of downsides. The undo command can only undo a single stroke. Also, you can't zoom in and out, which makes drawing on such a tiny screen difficult. What you see is what you get.

I did get a stylus though. Because the stylus for the IPhone has to replicate a finger touch, it is bulky and still isn't very accurate. However, it does help.

I am still enjoying the convenience of drawing on the IPhone. I still need to take the time to do a few color pieces though. We will see what I can get to.

IPhone Sketches

Just for fun, here is another quick sketch from the Iphone. This one was done with the Sketch Club app.

IPhone Sketches

For the sake of getting something I could use to test for mobile development, I finally upgraded my electronic leash and now have an IPhone (grumble, grumble). On the bright side, it does have some interesting drawing and painting apps that I have been playing with. There are five that I have been using. They are Brushes, Zen Brush, SketchBook, Adobe Ideas, and Sketch Club. Each has it's own strengths and weaknesses. However, they are all kind of nice. Here is a little image I did playing around with the Brushes app. I am also including a video (It has a built in recorder). Forgive the poor accuracy of my line work. It is hard to finger paint pencil lines. I did just pick up a stylus though, and am experimenting with that. I am looking forward to getting back to painting as well. video

Slate Run

Took the kids to Slate Run Park again a couple of months back. Here are some of the photos from that trip. Sorry again about the watermarks, but you never can be too careful.

San Francisco

I am unloading pictures from my memory card, and so will be dumping a lot of photos up here. Here are two that I took in San Francisco in March. Enjoy.

Spring Semester Ecorche

Hello everyone. I haven't posted in a while again. (Seems to be the traditional introduction on this blog now.) Anyway, during the spring I was taking an Ecorche course for my MFA program. The concept is that you can learn anatomy by building the human figure from the inside out. Like a reverse dissection. Rather than cut in from the outside, you build it up. So, over the course of fifteen weeks, I modeled a half scale model of the human figure. I started out with building an armature and modeling the skeleton. Then I layered up the musculature from the deep muscles to the surface ones. I definitely learned a lot. I realize that some of my anatomy is off, but overall, it was a great experience. Anyway, since I haven't had many other projects I can show yet, I thought I would post this to show the end result of the ecorche course.

School Sketch Group

Haven't posted in a while. However, for anyone still curious, I am still drawing as much as possible. I am also working on some prototypes with Unity, working on my MFA, and trying to finish my secret project. Anyway, I am going drawing with my students once a week and here are a few from this week.
