Apps used: Sculpt + and Procreate

Note: The above iPad Art is a part of the humor series that I am working on. The elephant is digitally  sculpted using the app Sculpt + app by Autodesk. I then  painted the elephant using the same app. I then saved it it onto my iPad camera roll and imported this image onto Procreate. The background is painted using the app Procreate. Picture of Baby taken from Graphics Fairy. 

Here is one more as a part of the humor series :

Digital Whisper weekly challenge theme: Racoon and Every Inchie Monday-- Robot

Here are my entries for this week's Digital whisper challenge-- Racoon 

Title: I am watching you !
Medium: iPad Art
Apps used: Procreate


Note: Picture of  Racoon taken from my camera roll. This racoon visits us daily. 



Title: Time for  Dessert !
Apps used: Procreate
Medium: iPad Art

Note:  I wanted to infuse some humor onto this art piece. So used one of my favorite candy  for dessert. Also the car further ahead is not sure which way to pass them as these racoons want to  enjoy their dessert first. 

This Racoon is originally my painting done using pencils on my sketchbook. I took a picture of  it and incorporated it into this collage painting.

I hope you like it. If you want to participate for this weekly challenge please visit  http://digitalwhisper.blogspot.com.au/ 


This week the theme  at "Every Inchie Monday"  is "Robot." This is the first time I am participating for this challenge. It was quite challenging for me to work on such a small canvas as I am used to working in larger canvases. But I feel as an artist we sometimes have to break out of our comfort zone  and play and experiment with art.


Title: Beep Beep !
Medium: Micron Pens and Color Pencils on Moleskin journal
