Dr Sketchy’s is so much fun. I mean what more could I ask for really? A nice Sunday afternoon at the Toff in Melbourne with a beer and a gin, some rad Tunes by DJ Knave Knixx and a lovely life drawing/burlesque model called Evie Red. With her amazing costumes and great poses, Evie was a joy to draw.
As far as drawing was concerned, I was trying to push my technique a little more this time. I did the majority of illustrations using the standard pen and paper, however for the first time I decided to try and use my iPad. Sporting a Targus Stylus and a program called Procreate, I did a few sketches here and there. One of them came out really well. The others were a bit rough as I was trying to get used to the program itself and the short amount of time I had to draw each pose.
When I got home later that night, I was feeling quite experimental, so I decided to run my illustration through an app called Decim8. Decim8 is an amazing app that I highly recommend if you like glitching and distorting all sorts of images. Some pretty cool stuff happened as a result. I’ve listed some of my favorite illustrations and photos from the day below. Enjoy!

This was done on my iPad with a stylus and the Procreate app. This was a 15 minute pose from memory? I didn’t have too much time for the drawing, but I like how it came out in the end.
