Drawing stuff with Infinite Painter

This will be quick . . . I think. 

So, I’ve yet to take any of the classes I have available to me or watch any of the thousands of drawing tutorials available on the InterWeb.  

I mean, I will but . . . oh, heck; I’m an engineer by training and nature. I like to tinker. I mean, there’s little I’m good at, but the way people get good at stuff is by doing. So, when I have some minutes and I want to relax, I pick up my Note 8 and I start doodling. 

My readers have seen some of my doodlings. For instance, this is a recent one:

the original doodle

Well, that’s not what I posted on a recent Project 313 offering. I posted this version:

Dark Forces Taint The Canvas Of Life

It’s one of the many variants of the original drawing that I generate by playing with tools I have either on the Note 8 (Snapseed, Pixlr, and a couple of Photoshop apps) or on the PC (Lightroom, Photoshop, Topaz, Affinity, end more).

But, sometimes I actually try my hand at drawing stuff. You know, as a way to learn. 


Right away, I can tell I should have used shadows and more layers, and other stuff. Next time. 

This next one is the same drawing changed to B&W. 

Original in B&W

By the way, all of these are 1024 x 1024 pixel canvas so you can click on them for a slightly larger version on a new tab or window. 

After I did this, I transferred the drawing over to the PC because I wanted to feed it through the Topaz Impressions plugin.

I don’t remember all of the options I tried. 

Keeping this short, I’ll load all the rest here and then put all of the versions in a gallery and let readers choose how they want to peruse them. If they want to peruse them.  The full size lets you see the texture of the brushes, but it’s not going to give you any special insight into the process, inspiration, or any other aspect of the drawing . . . except, maybe, let you notice just how crude an effort it is. 

Here’s the gallery in a random order:

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. Excellent, Emilio!
    I like the original one in color, the Impressionist one, and the 2 that are 2nd and 3rd after/below the Impressionist one!
    Keep up your artistic endeavors!

      Thank you, Carolyn. I think you’re being overly-generous but I appreciate the encouragement (unlike what I get from you-know-who).

      Most of this is me getting back into practice. Not that I was great, but I had a bit more facility with representing proportions, perspective, and drawing odd little scenes. I’ll never be on par with serious artists, but I’ll enjoy what I do and that’s half the battle. If it were a battle.

      • I think art (and other creativity and hobbies) should bring us some enjoyment. And it’s cool if they bring joy to other people. :-) So, keep creating! You have a good eye (Well, two good eyes.) and an artistic nature. That is evident in your photography.

        HA! “you-know-who”! I like him!!! :-)

    Mamma and I know you have lots of creative talent and funnel it through various channels. However, we’re baffled by your choice of subject . . .

      That’s a recognizable and distinctive type of building. Also, pretty easy to represent. I shoot photos of people surfing but I don’t plan to surf. Same here . . . I don’t mind taking photos of churches and I always liked campanili, but that doesn’t change the fact I don’t abide by the teachings or condone the doctrine of hate.

      . . . unless you mean the person using a riding lawn-mower . . . again, I would use a push-mower but I was thinking of Forrest Gump.
