“This is a copy of my pen drawing of Flight. I added shadows with brush pen, edited the trees and shadows with collage and pen – then scanned the result into a digital program (TV Paint) to clean up. The figure itself doesn’t cast a shadow but it works for me. It’s a dream!”
Sometimes it feels as if things are a bit of a struggle.
Still. Today I saw 20 curlews in the field opposite the house … which was lovely.
I hear you’ve been boiling your dream rabbit.
“What? No Mum, I’ve been practising BOILING me line … in my animating. I’m following a young animator kdsketch on YouTube. Her tutorials are really helpful and she uses the same software as me. One of her videos demonstrates creating “a boiling line effect” … a kind of jitter in the animated image. So I’m going to try using it.”
“It’s only just coming up to the simmer so I can’t show you the end result. But I’m going to try boiling these images soon.”
You’re not making any sense you know. “Yup. I do know”
She sees the rabbit for the first time.
The Rabbit Couple.
