Two weeks till STAR WARS and I’ve decided to try my hand and caricature drawings, below is my first official attempt. I’ve always wondered how to properly emphasize a person’s features while still retaining what makes them identifiable. This first attempt may be a little tame, but I think I’ve gleaned some important techniques. Something to work on!
In the meanwhile, I’m up to season 5 of the CLONE WARS and Darth Maul has FINALLY appeared… But I can say that the second two thirds of season 4 were pretty good. I’ve started reading Lords of the Sith, too. It’s very interesting seeing Darth Vader and the Emperor so close up.
Inktober is already halfway through and I had no idea! What is Inktober? I (don’t) hear you ask (because I was the last person on Earth to learn of it). Well, apparently October is the month of artistic betterment (at least with inks) – a drawing a day, once every two days, or once a week as instigator Jake Paker says. Here are some of my posts this week for the month of Inktober!
So I’m a newbie on Instagram – but I LOVE it! While Twitter only lets you post 140 characters at a time, a picture on Instagram is worth a thousand words.
And drawings and photos are easy to consume, which is why I assume there is so much inter-user liking and commenting, especially compared to a site like Twitter.
coz like, yo… am I the only one who DOESN’T HAVE ANY FRAKKING IDEA WHAT ANYONE’S TALKING ABOUT ON TWITTER? OK, well I do get some of it – I’m only half under the proverbial rock. But half of Twitter feels like gibberish that I don’t get, and the other half feels like people just whispering at themselves (i.e. little to no comments, replies or retweets).
Instagram is different. As soon as I signed on, BAM! There are all my Facebook friends. BAM! They’re commenting on my photos. BAM! BAM! BAM! Randoms liking my work! Wow! It feels like I’m actually part of a community!
