Drawing Wild Animals from My Imagination

Monday, May 20, 2013
Some days, my imagination works overtime. A simple glance out my window turned into a small project.... I looked out the window, took a picture then uploaded it to my computer to do a little drawing. What do you see?

"Back in the day" (who thinks they'd ever say something like that?), I'd send my film out to be processed and ... wait a few days to pick it up ... maybe enlarge the photo on a color copier a few times and then draw on it with markers. Now with the magic of the computer, I can draw right on my tablet (amazon affiliate link) and get my idea out quickly.

So, there it is - do you see the hippo? I have 2 questions:

  1. What did you see in the first picture? Let your imagination go wild! If you'd like to save it to your computer and print/draw on it (any way you can, print/pen, tablet, collage, pencils, etc.) and send it back to me, I think that would be fun.

  2. If you know of an online course that could teach me how to use my Wacom tablet better, I'd appreciate a link! I bought it long ago with aspirations of digital design & it rests on my shelf, the most unused of all my craft supplies, but I think it has the most potential!

I also have the photo in my Flickr page, much larger - but they just updated the entire site today and it was shockingly hard to navigate around at first. Here's the original photo if you want to see & download it from Flickr.

Thank you for ignoring the crappy lawn.

  1. Ha - that's great! I have one of those tablets too - never use it. I had such high hopes for it too. Ah well.

  2. Judi, well if I ever hear of a good online course, I will let you know! I think it's the integration of using the tablet + software that baffle me & I don't even remember if this came with software in the first place, I'm using (free) GIMP for now.
