Gestural figure drawing done in Adobe Sketch and ported over to Tayasui Sketches for the watercolor bits. It is one of a few gestural figurative that I started drawing with my old iPad prior to 2018. I was likely using a Wacom Stylus or the old Pencil tool that I carried with me before Apple Pencil. This figure had no reference and I was testing the pen and ink with watercolor applications because that is what I use to work with long ago in traditional mediums.
I originally started working in ArtRage because I found it to be a great natural medium tool on the iPad and Desktop, a lot less complex than Corel Painter but with similar texture brushes and the look and feel that I was looking for. Except one thing. The textures never really carried over to print on canvas or paper. It just looks like a flat print, not the medium you are trying to emulate. So I thought it might be better to work with flatter mediums like pen and ink with dye or watercolor which doesn't depend on the relief as much to pull off the look and it can go on a hot press very well or even a cold press for the watercolor feel.
So it started to work up a couple of pieces like this , the only problem being these works are not really compositional in structure just free form gestures that are ok in and of themselves but I still desire to work a little deeper. Hopefully the motivation will come, or I might have to start forcing it.
