Portrait of Jane: Inkpad on iPad

Jane ForJKPP

This is a portrait of Jane for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. While I was on Pinterest I saw a painting by Stuart Davis who I had totally forgotten about. I was kind of thinking about his shapes while doing this, but without one of his pictures in front of me.

I also did another version of Jane using Sketchbook Pro on the iPad.

Angel Headed Hipsters: Sketchbook Pro on iPad

angel headed hipsters

This is a digital collage for the Mobile Artist Assigned Paintings group on Flickr. The theme was Poetic Language which had me a little perplexed at first. I couldn’t think of a poem to use at all and thought of using song lyrics instead. Then I remembered the movie “Howl” about Allen Ginsberg’s poem and the animated sequence that accompanied a reading of the poem. Some parts were abstract but other parts were too literal. I didn’t want to illustrate the poem but give my impressions of the images that came to my mind. I used Tooncamera, PicGrunger and Sketchbook Pro for this one. The second image was made with Percolator and Sketchbook Pro.

Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman: Inkpad on iPad

Lynda Carter As Wonder Woman

This is a portrait of Lynda Carter who starred in the Adventures of Wonder Woman in the 1970’s. I remember watching the show as a kid, along with Starsky and Hutch and Charlie’s Angels. I looked up Lynda Carter on Wikepedia and found that she has an album out and she still looks fabulous!

I used the Inkpad app for the initial drawing and used PicGrunger to give it the aged look. I wanted to give it a stars and stripes theme so I used the Percolator app to add the white stars. I put everything together using Sketchbook Pro on the iPad.

Percolate My QR Code!

Self

Since getting the Percolator app for my iPad I’ve been experimenting with the various filters to see what they can do. I decided to test out whether I could Percolate my QR code and would I still be able to scan it. I tried out the Star setting on Percolator and i tested it out as I went along. Next I wonders if I could import the star QR code into Toonpaint and ArtRage to make a more colorful and abstract QR code. The color version still works but I think the phone has to be very carefully aligned to the QR code. Eventually I want to make new Moo round stickers of my QR codes to distribute and stick on promotional materials. I am still working on the idea of incorporating the QR codes into my artwork, as in the picture above where I used Tooncamera and Sketchbook Pro on the iPad.

Portrait of Elizabeth Taylor: Inkpad on iPad

Elizabeth Taylor

This is a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor using Inkpad and ArtRage for the paper texture. I used a minimal color palette and tried to keep the background pretty simple.

Portrait of Aurora: Inkpad on IPad

Aurora For JKPP

This is a portrait of Aurora for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I had a lot of fun working on the various patterns, especially the ones behind her head. I imagine that Matisse would have loved the Inkpad app because you can create and move around shapes like he did with his paper cut pictures.
