Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Masked Huckers (in Color)
October 28, 2020
This took way too long to make, but it was also an
experiment—I wanted to play with a watercolor-like painting
capability that the Krita program provides with its large variety of brush
types and styles. I also used the stylus that let me draw right on my
laptop's screen, which has its own pluses and minuses. I generally used
the original picture for the basic colors, but then I played around with
it. I tried to be more true and careful to the nine people than to all of
the shades in the background, where I kind of went more Impresionistic or
lazy on. The shading and shadowing is better in some places and worse in
others. My shirt was supposed to be dark blue, but that didn't work well
and I was still learning how the different watercolor brushes worked.
I decided not to crop it as I like how the color just ends, and
similarly, I didn't feel like trying to create a metalic look for the the
ring in the bottom foreground that obscures the bottom right, as it was
what the camera was sitting on.
Anyway, it's something.
Here are the previous black and white
and the full
resolution color versions of the picture.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.

image, just click on the image.
