Drawing on an IWB before class start (again).

Mondays and Fridays are my least fun days teaching as they normally start at 8.30 with a meeting and go on to 5 with, if I’m luck, a grabbed coffee here and there.

So I was more than happy to find out that Fridays meeting had been cancelled. Coincidentally I’d confiscated an extendable pointing stick from a student so those two happy things seemed to be pointing me to the fact that I should definitely be drawing something on an Interactive Whiteboard.
Didn’t know what to draw, so as ever I started with a squiggle, as normal. I thought the squiggle looked vaguely like Vincent Price so I made a picture that also looked vaguely like Vincent Price too.
Not exactly alike, but you gotta do what the squiggle demands.

Didlr/Nokia #DreamAccessory campaign.

As a tablet artist of (admittedly very minor) note I was asked to quickly create a couple of pictures for the #DreamAccessory competition.

Both of these images were completed within 90 minutes. Which, I think, constitutes quick 🙂 In fact, having checked the video time for the second one, I did the monster in 38 minutes.

This one was created on iPad 3 using a Nomad brush:

… and this one was created on Promethean Interactive Whiteboard using a hard tipped IWB stylus.

Process video:

“But why,” the audience (hi mum) asks, ” didn’t you drag the window down lower to make it easier to paint the picture…”

“Ah…..” I reply, slowly, trying not to look as if I have the gentle reminders of backache from drawing at ever so slightly the wrong angle…

The pic and vid seemed to go down well though, which is always nice 🙂
