Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter The Young Scaffolder

Snapped this youth in Stamford. He had perched himself on the window of a local bank building. Couldnít help thinking his apparently artlessly graceful pose was maybe a touch calculated. Perhaps to scandalise the stout burgers of the respectable town. Perhaps just to appeal to the younger female population.
Either way he was probably not best pleased that the main interest he invoked was from me.....
Trying to get to grips with the drawing tools in the version of ArtRage that I have on the iPad Pro. Itís very much a lite version I think. Not as amenable as the native Procreate. Took a bit of effort but I think I eventually got something of the chunky look I was after. I had in mind those early drawings of Van Gogh of weavers and sowers.

Re: The Young Scaffolder

it's a beautiful job,
does not seem like a new attempt with a new program.
great. (his shoes for how you made them could already be a great job by themselves.)

I didn't know much about Van Gogh's drawings (even if the drawings are one of the things, probably the thing I love most to admire and therefore to look for an artist, and he is one of the few, of the first 10 I had often heard of) before knowing that this book also existed Seven Sketchbooks of Vincent Van Gogh,
who had made so many drawings, which was a medium that he practiced, mastered, indeed it is wonderful in itself the drawing but also propaetic for painting.

Re: The Young Scaffolder

Many years ago I took a big book of Van Goghís drawings out of the public library. I was fascinated to see his progress from clumsy first attempts to mastery. He was an obsessive draughtsman in his early years as an artist.
After that I read his letters to brother Theo which give a fascinating insight into his life. He was a major inspiration to me in my amateur way.

Re: The Young Scaffolder

There is a surprising amount of depth to the ArtRage app, though it is not quite as intuitive as ProCreate perhaps. The canvas adjustments in the application alter how many of the tools interact though, which is as unlike any other app available as any I have ever found. Same tools, totally different reaction based on the "canvas" settings.

Great work, try the oil brush, my favorite of any in any app, though it is pared down from the desktop version a bit.

Re: The Young Scaffolder

Thanks Delo I havenít really looked at the canvas settings. So far Iíve just gone for a basic plain drawing surface. That is clearly the next thing to experiment with.

Looking good Harry, so the subject didn't object to you photographing him?

Procreate 5 comes out soon. I used to play with Artrage and I like its impasto effects but I don't have enough time to learn everything so I'm sticking to Procreate you younger guys can have with it.

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: The Young Scaffolder

Harry thanks for the answer, in the last few years I have appreciated Vincent more and more, I admire him a lot, but knowing how much you appreciate him, that you find him important makes me love him even more.
However, to read (as I used to type on google years ago, learn to draw at 28, 29, or how to learn to draw, then I digressed another couple of years), read him as an example, see an article where he showed some steps of his journey (in that case they were two paintings that he created years later), it was something that at times made me think that maybe it would make sense to take up the pencil again (maybe, so it sounds bad, I didn't think in the best case of reaching excellence but of doing of something nice because maybe other examples, however, are the tennis players who start maybe 5 years old and well, or who excelled in music and started as a child, or the gospel with the holy spirit that gave the gift of tongues or other talents (ahem ), he made me think of the importance of work even if we always talk about a great, something really wonderful).
I did not read the letters to his brother, I bought a book about him some time ago, I remember above all the paintings, part of the biography but I have to reread it, letters, however, heard partly in a documentary.
*However, my interest, admiration, intrigued me a lot more thanks to the aforementioned documentary
https://vimeo.com/109538758 (the public if I can that is very nice)
with a wonderful Benedict Cumberbatch that gives him a voice thanks to his letters (such intense words, incredible words, as an actor they really got a good one but really powerful words)

No, not even this, but this year I saw the animated film, i love vincent, I find it beautiful, interesting, the particularity and style in which it is made, from a little life to his paintings, if you have not seen it I recommend it.
sorry for this message, however, in the space of your beautiful work. (as always works or splendid or even very funny in case of cartoons or works with your humor).


, last thing I mention, the song Vincent .., is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard and is dedicated to him.

Don McLean - Vincent (for what I said at the beginning, to know, to see how he also inspired wonderful art, whether it is music or painting or drawing makes it truly unique)
I'm really sorry that I digressed, went off topic.
if I made a mistake with a link or comment, I apologize

He did give me a bit of a scowl, Bill but that might just have been part of the mean and moody persona he had adopted for the general public....

'Loving Vincent' is a remarkable film, Joe. The first oil painted animation. I followed its progress on Facebook. They had about a hundred painters working on it who had been recruited online. They did an excellent job of pastiching Van Gogh's style. I purchased the movie on iTunes.
Don McLean's song is OK, a little too sweet for my taste but then I get into trouble with friends for being notoriously fussy about music.....

Looks good Harry! It has that pencil/charcoal-y feel so that's a plus for art rage.. good foreshortening too! - KW

Re: The Young Scaffolder

Cheers, Kevin! Nice to hear from you again. If we'd known you was coming we'd have baked a cake!....
I must say I'm very impressed with the way these digital programs can simulate the traditional media while giving you all the additional image manipulation facilities. I'm giving myself a year to try to get to grips with it all.
Great to be able to follow you on Instagram. Always inspiring stuff from your hand.
