I joined a group on Tumblr called The Daily Draw. We are given the theme for the upcoming week and commit to do a drawing a day based on the theme. My first week, the theme given was Vegetables. So, I came up with 7 drawings of vegetables that week. At the same time, I was getting work prepared for a group exhibit with the theme "New Beginnings." I pondered how I could use the vegetable drawings to go with this theme. So, I chose 4 of the drawings, all created using the Sketch Club app for iPad., then loading them into the Camera+ app to crop and boost the color. Here they are:
I used the Photo Wall app to make a collage of the four drawings. I had a problem, tho. The backgrounds did not match. Here it is, before I loaded it into ArtRage to work on the background color:
I loaded it into ArtRage and used the brush tool to work on the background and pull it all together. Now, an 8x8 inch print of the piece is mounted on an 8x8 Ampersand board, hanging in the "New Beginnings" exhibit. Here is the finished digital version:
The "New Beginnnings" exhibit is hanging in the "Open Doors" gallery at Hill Country Bible Church NW, 12124 RR 620 North, Austin, TX 78750.
Playing with an iPad is soooooooooo much fun. Here is a digital drawing I recently did, using the ArtRage app.
And then the fun began.......
I loaded the drawing into several different photography apps. Alas, I should have documented which ones I used when. For, here are the different versions, and I'm not sure which one was altered in PS Express, which in Simply HDR-Hd, or in both. But, here they are. Choose the one you like the best. If any.
below, the 3rd version:
The 4th version.
And, finally, the 5th version:
I have asked friends to tell me which one they like best. I was hoping for a consensus. Nope. Each one has at least one "like."
I may never know which one is "best." And, that's okay.
Okay, don't be too impressed. I did this on animoto.com, a "plug and chug" site. They provide the canned format. I used the free version. But, you can upgrade, if you want to spend some money. I am still pondering the idea.
So, here is the video:
And, here is my latest iPad drawing, using the ArtRage app:
