Go Go Amy @ Dr. Sketchy’s NYC

Go Go Amy @ Dr. Sketchy's

I had a great time drawing at Dr. Sketchy’s featuring Burlesque performer and Pin Up model Go Go Amy. This was a real “old school” Dr. Sketchy’s session without any elaborate theme, but I always feel that I get better drawings at these types of sessions. I had not been able to go to Dr. Sketchy’s for the last couple of months and I really missed it.

This was one session where I wish I was able to take photos because Go Go Amy had beautifully colored costumes. Some of the short poses at the beginning featured her flaming pasties. Go Go Amy is part of a traveling Burlesque troupe called “Pretty Things Peep Show” that travels and performs around the country. They have a KickStarter going on until April 11th to raise money for a new tour bus. If you are interested in Burlesque you should definitely check it out because they have some pretty neat incentives.

Juan For JKPP

This is a portrait of Juan for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. For this portrait I combined the Percolator app with Sketchbook Pro to create the digital collage elements to “paint” on and erase different parts of the picture.

Portrait of Lisa: Inkpad and Percolator App Mashup

Lisa For JKPP

This is a portrait of Lisa for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I have been experimenting with combining the Percolator app with other apps to give it a more unique look. I used Inkpad to draw the initial portrait and the imported it into Percolator. I created two different versions of the portrait using stars and circles. Next I imported the 3 versions into Sketchbook Pro to bring out parts of each version and subdue other parts. Finally I imported the picture into ArtRage to give it the watercolor paper texture.

Percolated Baltimore

Baltimore Harbor

I was going through some older photos looking for something to “Percolate”. This was taken in Baltimore at the harbor on a vacation several years ago. I think this is the aquarium. My photo was taken with a digital camera and imported into Percolator. I like the way the filters give it an impressionistic look. I would like to do an acrylic painting of this picture in the near future.
