Veteran’s Day 2018

Filed under: DRAWINGS,History,Religious — Colby @ 1:15 pm

My church asked for a cover for their Veteran’s Day service.

In addition to the United States flag I included:

Dog tags to represent our military veterans. Poppies to illustrate the hope for an end to all wars. Military service seals for each branch of service (as gold medallions). References to two bible verses from John 15 and Psalm 18.

I came across the term “dryad” the other day and felt compelled to come up with my own version so I conjured up this creature on my iPad just for the fun of it.

Lili Damita

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 12:52 pm

Surfin’ the tube and came across an old movie, Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn. He was one of my favorite actors so I looked him up on the internet. In that search I discovered Lili Damita, one of his three wives. Watched the movie with my iPad in my lap and started this sketch. I didn’t get through and after a slew of interruptions I finally finished it after several days.

Girl in Orange Line with Colors

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 8:53 am

Experimenting on my iPad Pro. This started with a simple line drawing in orange. Next I widened the lines in different colors on back layers. Then I played with the brush tools. Then I got bored and stopped. This is where I stopped.

Careless Claudia

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 11:57 am

When I watch TV or a movie I often get curious about the actors. Sometimes actors from days past, sometimes up and coming ones. So I look them up on the internet. I came across an interesting photo of Claudia Cardinale and had the urge to do a “pencil” drawing of her on my iPad Pro.

Colored Bubbles

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 8:20 am

Piddlin’ on the iPad. Just as I started on the sketch I wondered what it would like on black instead of white. So I switched. I discovered it loses a lot when viewed small so be sure and click to enlarge.
