This is a portrait of Sweet Melisa for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I started with an Inkpad drawing:
Next I used the Percolator app to make several different versions:
Finally I imported all the different versions into Sketchbook Pro. I used the layers to erase parts of each layer to subtract the Percolated areas that I did not want.
This is a Selfie using the iPad and Pixlromatic+ and Snapseed. This particular pose makes me think of the line “All right Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up” from Sunset Boulevard.
Three Beautiful Steampunk Ladies
A little over a month ago I went to the International Steampunk City at Speedwell. I took some Hipstamatic photos on my iPad of some of the wonderfully costumed ladies at the event. One aspect I love about Steampunk is it embraced by people of all ages, from small children to more mature adults. It’s fun to see how each age group interprets Steampunk in their own way.
Steampunk Robot Girl
I loved the way this girl combined science fiction and Steampunk with her Robot Girl! I am amazed by the imagination that is put into their looks.
This is a drawing from Dr. Sketchy’s Tribute to Doctor Who in New York. This session was about two years ago, before I was even familiar with the series. Thanks to Netflix I’ve been getting caught up with a couple older seasons. Who is your favorite Doctor?
This is a quick sketch of Adrienne Rose for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I used the Inkpad Vector drawing app on the iPad and imported the drawing into ArtRage for the texture. I really liked the colors in her original photo because they were quite different from my usual palette.
This is a portrait of Holly Ween of White Elephant Burlesque Society. The photo was taken with my iPad at their performance at The International Steampunk City in Speedwell. I loved the whole troupe’s performances, but a highlight was Holly Ween in this costume. I used the Repix app to add texture and a painterly feel to the picture. I will be posting more photos from their performances soon.
A special thanks to Craig Kupiec for taking this photo in Speedwell, New Jersey.
