Some fillums…

Trying out timelapse sketching, using this goose-neck camera mount and this type of GoPro camera (when it was even cheaper!) which has a 170 degree very wide-angle lens. The films are fun to do, and an interesting way to reflect on your sketching process/approach/bad habits etc. The top one was done using a new ‘Franken-pen’ which combines a bamboo dip-pen at one end, and a water-brush at the other; I can dip both into the ink-pot (top right) for line and tone with minimal disruption to the ‘flow’ of drawing. Ridiculous looking, but it seems to work well!

    I love your videos! You and Mike Daikubara are making good use of the GoPro — finally a use that doesn’t make me dizzy! 😉 And your Frankenpenbrush! You are a master of the hack, Dr. Mostly!

    Really great. Brings back good memories. I love what you did here.
    I went to a vintage car show yesterday, which was fun but people kept walking in front of the cars, which was tricky as I kept working on another part of the car and it wasn’t easy to join up the parts. In the end I went back to drawing people. It was Canada day so everyone was dressed in red which was great as I rarely use the red in my paintbox!

    Love the videos, although I couldn’t get them to play and had to scroll through them.
