A Drawing Begun on My Android Phone; and Finished on the iPad.

Drawing of a woman's face

Occasionally, I try out some art apps on my phone. I began this in Autodesk Sketchbook on my Motorola phone. It has a 5 inch screen, just enough room to do a bit of sketching. I draw with my finger, rather than use a stylus. As on the iPad, I can expand the picture area to help with some detail work.  However, with this one I decided to email it to my iPad before doing much detail.  I then saved it into iPhotos.

Next I worked on it again in the Autodesk Sketchbook app, and then did a little more on it in Procreate. The very small screen creates certain limitations in how I use line, tone and colour. This can be a challenge; and like many challenges one I rather enjoy!

It also leads to some distortion (though I think I can improve on this) in the shapes I make… which I kinda like..

I try to draw daily, whether on paper, canvas or the iPad…or android phone! Practice – as in most skill learning – is so important in furthering skills in drawing.

Thanks for visiting; have a great day!

*Just thought I’d mention to fellow bloggers who I’ve met up with over in Instagram land; I’ve now deleted my site there. I found it way too busy a place… at least for the moment, may try it again one day..
