It’s been a year and a few months since I started the weekly drawing sessions. I wrote about it last year and thought it’s time to write about it again.
Warning: although I’ll try to keep it relevant and organised to a degree, this post is going to follow our experiences in a chronological order as I look through screenshots and saved image files. So it’s going to be a little bit messy. Bear with me.
Apparently this is how we started 2021. Instead of playing games or doing themed drawings, we just simply started doodling.
We found & tried out new games too. We added gartic.io to the list of games we’d play sometimes.
Then I came up with an idea to gamify forensic sketch and we started trying that out. We now call this game Tell-a-Vision. I wrote the rules on my itch game page but to put it simply, it’s a multiplayer drawing game where one person plays the role of the witness and the others–forensic artists draw things based on the descriptions by the witness.
Here you can see some of the results.
We also tried out different ways to draw/different games, etc.
Then we found Gartic’s sister app, Gartic Phone and made some animated gifs.
Here are some of the good ones handpicked by me.
Lastly, we tried to do still life drawings using Sketchfab since I got tired of staring at the flat screen every day and night.
This is the model we picked that day: https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/still-life-47b260b3f9e14471b555ee6632faa7a8
And here are the results:
It was an interesting experience because it also gave us the chance to examine the model in detail.
That’s it! Thanks for scrolling & reading. The rest is some of the doodles, sketches, and game results we had:
