Read about a couple of new online sketch apps this evening – Harmony and Scribbler. They’re a variation of the kinds that I’d tried earlier. The difference here is that they insert some patterns, shadings on their own to your lines and so you’re not completely in control. I found Harmony easier to use.
The doodles immediately below were made with my mac trackpad and started their lives as one long wavy line going back and forth till I could see a shape in it and then a couple of minutes trying to bring that out. Try them you wont regret it. In some ways better than scribbling in the margin of the paper or magazine while you’re talking on the phone. The two portraits were made using photo references and a wacom tablet.
The last one is the piece I made to try out Scribbler. Head on there and give them a whirl. They’re fun to use and you wont regret it!
