Right now I have a group of images that I took a few days ago and I really like them. Do I create them realistically or imaginatively?
Now to work on the design ideas and I will tell you that sometimes I get an idea and I have to work on it instantly…. yes, right there and then. Sometimes if I’m out and about, I work it through my head, often to the annoyance of my companions. But today, because I’m under pressure to share with you all….. I’m a bit stuck.
I have an iPad Pro. This is my third in the series. I use an Apple Pencil, but in saying that you can use any ipad or tablet and a stylus. A stylus is quite thick and you’re not able to get a thin line like I can with the Apple Pencil. I will say that a stylus will work on any tablet, and Apple Pencil will only work on an Ipad.
I’m using Adobe Sketch to draw this. Personally I have all of the Adobe programs it’s necessary for my illustrative ideas. However, for the Ipad you can buy Ipad Sketch for a monthly fee and you can trial it before hand as well.
- I opened Adobe sketch.
- I chose a watercolour brush located on the left side of the page.
- I chose the color by clicking on the bottom circle of colour in the white panel on the side and I chose 300 in the size… you click on the size circle and roll the pen up the screen without lifting it off the Ipad.
- If you click on the ‘color’ panel you open the themes.
- If you choose the ‘Picker’ you can use the slider to access the tone of the color or indeed even change the colour.
You can see that I’ve added a few different colors to the background. Then I save it. Click the button with the small envelope and an arrow and it will open up the page below, click on image and then you will see the save button on the right hand side of the picture. It saves it directly to photos. I do that so I always have a base colour in my photos and I can go back and use it for
Now I have the base and in one of the images above…. I’ve added a white blob… but I’ll explain that later.
Have fun playing.
