Skelly, an artists friend!

Hi everyone….. I recently found an awesome app called ‘Skelly’ & had to grab it straight away….no longer do we need the wooden anatomy figures that grace many an artists studio, Skelly has us covered! A full skeleton with various pre programmed poses, plus the ability to move skelly into infinite silohettes with all the joints moving seperately makes this little app a must have for any artist that loves to paint the human form. Skelly can also be changed into a robotic looking version of the traditional wooden figure, with a chrome covering his bony bod! The app also features light source that can be moved to show various angles how light hits the body & creates shadows…. Check it out now, i think you’ll find it to be a great tool as i have- ❤️🦁🎨

Drawing Declan

A how to on pain ting a portrait of a baby using any digital program or pretty much any medium….its not that different. I used maybe 4 or 5 brushes on this…sorry i cant share as they are ones I’ve got from other artists but there are plenty of  generic brushes you can use. I haven’t gone into a lot of detail on using tools in the program but if anyone’s interested I can certainly do a more in depth tutorial. Cheers – Lion Art Drawing Declan©LionArt-MichelleWebb

Melts my heart

Artists tend to paint whats happening in their life, whether it be a subject or an emotion…it invariably ends up showing in our work. This piece is the center of my life, my gorgeous little grandbub Declan…he lights up my life in a million different ways & I adore him along with my daughter like no others. ❤ I think my anatomy rehash is helping greatly & am really  happy with this piece. So watch this space as this little man will be featured in a few things I have coming up… ❤ Lion ArtDeclan 2

Always learning….

My belief is as an artist, i will be learning for the rest of my life….it never stops, theres always something another artist can offer you. I make time for study at least a few hours each week…at present im doing human anatomy, as this is an area i need to hone my skills. Below is a page from my notes, a bit messy i know but readable.. 😝 Sort of! The basics of drawing & painting are needed whatever medium you work in…..digital is no different. Form, light, shadows, perspective, colour harmony, lost & found edges……all elements needed for a good composition & tips ill be posting will include these things. The eye is the window to the soul, so a good place to begin…enjoy the tips below, basic but necessary. ❤️🦁🎨image
