One of the ways I use to doodle when I was young was to draw a shape then try to make something out of that shape. I decided to do that again today because it is great practice, and fun. Today's shape was the great big yellow bell that became her dress.
I also decided to not try and make it pretty. Most of the drawings by other people that I like are far from perfect but for some reason I can't do that style, even though I love it! I am in this box that says "that's not good enough, you have to do it better". Of all the drawings over the last year, or more, I am only proud of 3 or 4... the rest, I want a "do-over". .... Well, NO! I'm going to work on acceptance of the not perfect ON PURPOSE! Do it loosey goosey, ON PURPOSE, and create a new style for myself. I can do this!
No, I am not a mom... It was never on my bucket list.... But, she looked like a mom and I needed some words. :-)
Another one.... It started with this shape:
And watch what happened:
All of the above was actually done with an App I just discovered, Sketch Club. Not only does it have some nice drawing functions, it also records! I have another one that does that but it is hard to control the speed...this one is a little bit better. You can see I was learning! The next step is to take it into some other package (?) and clean it up... you really can't do any modifications to the video with the app.
