Drawing Plan 26: Rustle, gurgle. Bam, swish, and whisper. Art – Arf!

Hi, friends, let us talk about yesterday and then move to the drawing plan 26. The other day, I reviewed the possibility of live streaming on Twitch. Also, my brother suggested I use an app called Iriun to capture live video from my phone and feed it to my open broadcaster software. Then, after setting it up, my MacBook Pro was running slow. I will need to find a better way to live stream. Anyhow, let’s try to push towards the drawing plan 26.

Looking for the UI Muse for inspiration for OBS
Looking for the UI Muse for inspiration for OBS

Last night, I had tried to think about building a Twitch layout for live streaming. However, nothing exciting came from my doodles. It wasn’t until this morning that I realized that I need to go online and get some inspiration. Then, I will probably get better ideas for the UI or look and feel. If you’re still confused, I’ll try to explain in the next paragraph as we try to make our way to the drawing plan 26.

When using open broadcaster softer or OBS for short, you can customize your live stream. What that means is that you can put borders, colors, and images on top of each other to create an appealing look for your live stream. Also, it is sort of similar to going to a store. The store has a banner with pretty colors and decorations to catch your attention. I hope that gives you an idea of what I mean by UI, so let us move to the drawing plan 26.

Drawing Plan 25: Drizzle, drizzle. Water plops. Giggle, clank.

Hi, friends, let’s talk about yesterday and then move to the drawing plan 25. The other day was mostly about chores and cooking Russian borscht. I made the bathrooms sparkle. Then after lunch, we started chopping up veggies and boiling beats. Also, I don’t see why it takes us two hours to make it. Our mom makes it under an hour. It must be all the years of experience. Let us try to move to the drawing plan 25.

Oh and by the way, our washer broke yesterday. Then, it started to tumble and make crazy sounds. We checked it out, and it smelled like burning rubber. Man, I was telling myself how much I love going downstairs and dragging along wet laundry. Anyhow, lets keeping going until we reach the end of the drawing plan 25.

I didn’t get to draw, but I setup Clip Studio Paint on my iPad. Further, I recall that on Saturday, it was a pain in the butt. I couldn’t find the tools I needed to do simple things on a small screen. I want on YouTube and followed a tutorial until I had something working. Then, I ran out of time, and it was time to eat dinner. Okay, let us move away from yesterday.

Drawing Plan 24: Ahem, Aheeem. Burb. Clang. Hoink hoooink!

Hi, friends, let us talk about yesterday and then move to the drawing plan 24. The other day was mostly about wrapping birthday presents and celebrations. Even our bike ride to Central Park involved us going to a secret location to buy a gift. We had so much food at the table and took many pictures. I feel a bit odd, sharing my family pictures on WordPress. So I will save myself the excitement, but i can tell you it was a traditional Russian dinner. Let me try to write a bit more before I move on to drawing plan 24.

During my commute to my mom’s the other day, I tried to draw for my rock studies. Then, I completed a single drawing of a rock. It felt painful, especially on the train. After 12 minutes of that, I finished it. However, right after, I started doodling and did something fun. To my surprise, I started drawing a bunny rabbit with a human figure. Man, I’m excited, so before I reach drawing plan 24, I want to finish talking about the experience.

The human bunny rabbit started with sketchy lines, then made its way to color flats. For the color flats, I choose gray colors of different values. The reason I draw this way is that the next step is to add a gradient map. Then I can quickly cycle between colors and move on to rendering more of the image. Anyhow, that is interesting to me, I want to build a more reliable workflow. Let us move to the drawing plan 24.

Drawing Plan 23: Chat, Chatter-Cheep. Choo-Choo!

Hi, friends, let us talk about yesterday and then move to the drawing plan 23. Did you ever have a dreary Friday where its mostly about work that you had to do for somebody? Then later, you realized that you didn’t get to do what you wanted? Friday, was all work and a little bit of fun. We watch The Patriot with Mel Gibson over lunch and dinner. Then rest were mostly chores.

After chores, I thought about working on the live streaming landing page. Also, I wanted to draw four more pictures to depict the art DIET plan. Hopefully, this weekend, I can illustrate those pictures and stick the landing page on the menu for people to discover. Let us try to move on to drawing plan 23.

Before, drawing plan 23, I recall watching a video on the BioSphere is located in Oracle, Arizona. Also, the YouTube video mentioned that they were trying to replicate earth in a box. The group of scientists working at the place said it was losing oxygen due to the soil and concrete in the building. However, the issue is corrected, and the BioSphere is sustaining life. Anyhow, let us move to the drawing plan 23.
