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.
Ray Ray Version
The Percolator app was just updated and it has a fun new “filter”. The Ray Ray blend creates geometric shapes, along with the circles. I like to use Percolator with my Inkpad drawings to give them more unique textures. Another filter that I like is the Tripstamatic blend because it has more neon and psychadelic colors. I usually create an app mashup with the Percolator app where I import several images into Sketchbook Pro to add and subtract areas that I like.

I created a digital portrait of Tammy for the Flickr group Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I started the portrait using the Inkpad App. I wanted to give the portrait a unique texture so I used the Percolator app and used the “napkin” texture. In order to remove some of the circles in the portrait I imported the images into Sketchbook Pro and used the eraser tool.

A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to create a portrait of Adora for the Adorable Tumblr featuring over 300 pieces of artwork based on photos and a Wish List of different ideas artists can work from. For my portrait I used Percolator, Wordfoto and Sketchbook Pro on my iPad.
This is such a wonderful project and I am really enjoying seeing all the imaginative art that is on the site. The artists are from all around the world and there is a wide variety of styles and materials used. I’m really looking forward to seeing this project as it progresses.
This is a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor using the vector based drawing app Inkpad. I imported circles from a picture of a lighthouse I created using Percolator. I really like using percolator to create interesting textures. In this picture I wanted to keep the pallette very limited and was trying to use more black to give it a more of the feeling of a comic book drawing.
