These sketches were done at a local coffee shop. Just folks hanging around. Done using the Procreate app for iPad.
This is a quicker painting done on the iPad using Procreate. I cropped it and brightened it a little in Photoshop.
I did this painting for my dog Sisu. He passed away a year ago. On the anniversary of the last day I had with him, I stopped at Griffith Park on my way home from work and started painting while there was a little light left in the sky. I got a rough block in done and finished it working from a photo I snapped before hiking back down. He used to come up there with me all the time. Sometimes he’d wait for me while I did little plein air sketches. He was easily one of the best friends I’ve ever had. I miss him dearly and hope he’s doing well wherever he is.
This is a quick painting done using the painting application Procreate, for iPad. I got most of it down but revisited it for some final touches later on. Procreate now supports HD images (better resolution), unfortunately, this was done before that feature was available.
This one was in the Art Rage app.
Here are a few sketches done on the iPad.
This sketch was me trying out different brushes in Sketchbook Pro’s iPad application. I did this at a nearby coffee shop while sitting outside.
These were done at different times. The chubby fellow with the mobile phone was at a Coffee Bean down the road. I sketched him as he talked to his friend while I was waiting for mine.
This gal is a friend of a friend who I sketched at a house warming party.
This one was the result of more experimenting with different brushes.
This one was a quick scribble in of a face trying to get a decent pencil look going.
More messing with pencil type brush looks.
This one again, took place at a coffee joint up the street. This old feller sits out there from time to time and plays chess with whoever wants to play. I sketched him for close to 30 minutes.
This guy was one of my first sketches on the iPad, just a quick test drive.
