Art Techniques, WarmUps

Wednesday WarmUp Fishy Music


I’ve enjoyed providing each week a “Wednesday Warm Up,”— a day of usually quick drawing, inking, brushing as warm up to our serious art. I share a strategy to try each Wednesday using the iPad app ProCreate.

This Week

Another look at what some of my CLmooc friends and I participate in each day: A Daily Create. Each daily create is meant to take about 10 minutes, but I enjoy doing a bit more to practice my art. On Aug 24 the prompt was Strange Music Day. We created strange music at Tones by Wolfram and add our downloaded creations to an image. Here’s what I shared on Twitter, although my art Twitter is @42Sheri :

How did I create this?

  1. Created the music at the site and downloaded to files
  2. Saved a screenshot of the instruments and website url as credit
  3. Sent the music to iMovie [you can also open iMovie and insert from files]
  4. Added images— fish/credit screenshot
  5. Fish: Ken Burns Effect
  6. Credit Image: filter- spotlight b/w
  7. Imported duplicate music as needed
  8. Exported video to photos to share on Twitter

Each Daily Create could be music, video, gif, poetry– a lot of creativity for fun so that we make art everyday.

Enjoy this video How To, with an added quick sketch I did as well for the #dndchallenge prompt, “swirls.” [ @bydawnnicole Lettering and Doodle Challenge ]

Try it!

This Daily Create and quick sketch — both to prompts — are great ways to get started in the morning and share with others. We share the Daily Create as shown on the website and the daily prompts are shared with the hashtag provided by the prompt maker, in this case #dndchallenge. It looks like that hashtag has more than one artists creating prompts for it.

Things like this are fun when all you’ve got is a bit of time — and if you’ve a strategy or favorite daily prompt, please share. And please– share with #warmup4art so we can all enjoy your work too! I look forward to your sharing and tag me at @42Sheri.

Thank you, and make art every day!
