I’ve been wanting to try and ‘master’ the impression of transparency on a doodle. And I think I may have done it. Woohoo!! But after a few attempts. The images below were created on PicsArt Color. I think of the three Apps I mentioned in my piece Digital Doodling for Beginners, PicsArt Color is probably my favourite.
First came a Mug
This was my first attempt at a glass item. It didn’t work, as you can see. The first band was intended to be a water level. But no. So instead of discarding it I decided to turn it into a colourful mug, with some accents of water.
Next, I’m not sure
This was my second attempt. I think if I had used the lighter blue for the whole doodle, it might have worked. But I didn’t warm to it. It looks a bit clinical.
But I think where I went wrong was by having the outline darker than the contents. So it lacked the feeling of being transparent. Or maybe it’s just me. Due to it being SO symmetrical it ended up reminding me of something from a school science lab experiment! Lol!
Finally! A Glass Vase
So here is the third attempt at a glass vase! And I have to say, I’m pretty happy with it. As you can probably tell, I made use of the symmetry option, but a little more gently. I also used a thicker brush texture, which also looks softer and more informal. I tend to use the graph paper option for the background while creating the doodle, it helps with perspective. I add a whole background colour once I’m happy that I’ve finished the doodle.
