or purple and probably use those two colors less than others, so I decided to do a sketch of BB in orange and purple--which I did, last night. Today, I added white and black. Of course I realize now that orange is not that far from skin tones and purple is a good shadow color, so with the addition of black for pupils (the purple was too pale) and white for his beard (the purple was too dark), it gives a reasonable representation. Of course, I could have used paler and paler and darker and darker shades of orange and purple, but did not. I will probably, time allowing, play with this some more.
I did this on photoshop on my Mac using my Cintiq tablet and Wacom pen from life, with BB sitting on the couch falling asleep last night before I left for my sleep study. I had to request that he open his eyes. LOL! I did it very hastily because I only had about 20 minutes before I had to leave. This morning I just added the white and black.

Today's work, in part from a fractal created on Apophysis (A free download for PCs*) and in part with cartoon images my creation.
*(Oxidizer and FractalWorks are free fractal downloads for Macs)

Apophysis, a free download for PCs. The first one I created by
manipulating the triangles. The second one was "right out of the
box," #090310-62/handkerchief. It was so pretty I didn't want to
manipulate it at all.
Question: Who owns fractals created by Apophysis, Oxidizer,
FractalWorks? If I made them by changing colors and manipulating
triangles etc, are they MINE or do they belong to whoever made the
programs? Does anyone know the answer?

The second is a postcard I did at home when I bought some new Micron brushes on sale for $2.39 each at Utrech, and 4 new tubes of paint. I used ONLY those brushes and paints to make the picture. They are: ultramarine blue, golden Lake, Verzino violet (which looks like pink to me) and Alizarin Crimson. It's fog rolling in off Lake Huron at the Piner with bank swallows. I was going to paint some larger (closer) ones but decided I liked the minimalist look. Both are made on Arches cold press paper.
