Too long because the app is extremely buggy and although this was fun I do NOT recommend it in it’s current incarnation

OK, this looks nothing like beautiful Beth Meador but I was working from a photo of her, and the lite-brite aspect cracks me up, so here it is. Better viewed in thumbnail I think, or by deliberately blurring your eyes.

You can see Pepepochi’s artwork on her flickr imagestream: www.flickr.com/photos/pepepochi/

Photos of Pepepochi and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/discuss/7215762455903…

I have really enjoyed writing about everyone’s work when I make my first portrait of them. However, I’ve realized that it keeps me from making portraits because of the time involved in making all the links and writing the descriptions.

So in the interest of more portraits, there’s going to be less writing. Instead, I encourage everyone to follow the link above and check out Pepepochi’s imagestream for themselves.

I have really enjoyed writing about each artist’s work when I make my first portrait of them. However, I’ve realized that it keeps me from making portraits because of the time involved in making all the links and writing the descriptions.

About 30-45 minutes today over some random scribblings that hadn’t amounted to anything some other day. Most of the time was tweaking edges of things because it is very tricky to make a thin line in this basic (and very fun!) app.

Interestingly, Elena, whose flickr name is Erast-Photographer, seems to have kept herself out of most (though not all) of the London JKPP meet-up photos. This was done from one of the two group shots I found her in. Hope she’s always wanted to be a red-head…

Elena’s work – from photographs to drawings to paintings to textiles – can be found here: www.flickr.com/photos/efandorin/

15-20 minutes to draw, another 15-20 minutes to repeatedly draw and erase teeth.

Another portrait from the London JKPP meet-up, this time of Stella Tooth, whose work you can see here: www.flickr.com/photos/stellartist/

I used another procedural program, Qvik Sketch, which I don’t recommend despite the .99 USD pricetag- it was very hard to do small areas like pupils without the whole area going black – I think you have more control in Sketch Club, OmniSketch and probably some of the others.
