I created a second version of the Cecil Beaton picture that I posted a couple of days ago. I will go through the steps of creating the picture for a short tutorial on mixing several different apps. I find that I like using different elements of several apps together, i.e. I like the quality of the lines that I can achieve using Sketchbook Mobile but find that I use Brushes for “painting” the picture.
Next I opened up the image in Jackson Pollock.
Next I went back into Brushes to clean up some of the Jackson Pollock “drips”.
I went back into Sketchbook mobile to add a few different brush strokes in her hair and on the necklace. I was really unhappy with one of the hands and wanted to create the collage to obscure the hand.
I created two images using the addLib App and created the collage using the Layers app:
This is the final version:
After looking at the progression of the image just now I realize that I lost a lot of the line quality from the Sketchbook Mobile version to the Brushes version. The Brushes version looks more like an ink drawing. I’m still not sure which version I like better but the first version seems to have gotten a more positive response on Flickr so far. Which version do you like better ?
