I've been thinking about doing some new things lately, you know how it is in the New Year...your mind races with all sorts of amazing ideas and your spirit is renewed with the energy driven by possibilities....well a couple months ago I bought a new drawing tablet with the idea of working on some stencils for a company...and I did do some designs but nothing was coming to me that we could use for a set. I'm still chewing on it. I think I have stencil block for some reason.
While chewing on ideas, I started playing around with photoshop, doing some designs..but I had more ideas just not the time to make them happen until, well, the New Year appeared and all of a sudden I decided to turn a new leaf and just do what had been on my mind.
One of the ideas is to share more tutorials here on the blog, hopefully weekly in some way, shape or form. I still have some of my reactionary ways hovering inside of me...I'm trying to move to a more proactive self but that's still a work in progress. By that, I mean, I'm not ready to say that we are going to have a Tutorial Tuesday here and I already have a years worth of tutey's planned...but I did pencil in some ideas into my trusty new planner...and today is the first of them.
Here is a short tutorial on drawing lips digitally using the program Sketchbook Pro. I am VERY new to it...like I've had it about 2 weeks and used it about 4 times, so while I don't know everything about it, I have pressed a bazillion buttons and know basically how it works.
The cool thing is I can see potential for new classes and also simply a great way to practice drawing and design.
Maybe once I just let go and try new things, my original purpose for the program (to design stencils) will flow more easily.
All right, here ya go...hope you enjoy!
If you are in the neighborhood, stop by my Etsy shop and see what's new! I uploaded several new paintings this week that are amazingly vibrant and super happy. Take a look!
Don't forget, only a few more days left to save on my classes over at Creative Workshops!!
I also have a newly released workshop coming up at Creative Workshops called Art Journal: The Book. The class opens January 27th and is ONLY 22.00!
Registrations are zooming in for classes at Art Is You already!! Take a look at what I'll be offering this year in Dixe and in Stamford:))) Hope to see you there!
Till we meet again!
