This is a portrait of Nika for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I had a lot of fun with this one. I am still experimenting with Inkpad and find it to be almost hypnotizing. I kind of lose myself in e process of making a drawing with Inkpad. I love the way you can easily move shapes around the page and duplicate shapes. The process almost reminds me of Matisse’s colored paper cut drawings. I imagine that if Matisse was alive today he would love an app like Inkpad.
I’ve also been trying out the shadow function which gives the picture a more 3D look. I added in elements of WordFoto using Sketchbook Pro, erasing different layers to give the words a more transparent look. I think the Inkpad/Wordfoto combination really lends itself to this portrait series.
