Our prompt of “Laptop” today was admittedly unusual in that it’s not a subject matter that often shows up in sketches. Yet, it’s quite a common everyday thing. Each morning, I start my day with a cup (or two) of
Great post Charlie! I must admit I wasn’t thrilled with today’s prompt but it came together better than feared. Thanks for the reminder how lost I would be without my smartphone or my Surface. I track so much on both, I am in contact with people all over the world in my various art communities and I can learn just about anything I want to from the comfort of my living room. It amazes me sometimes. I still remember life before computers and smartphones. Simpler but not necessarily better.
Thanks so much, Karen! 😃💕hehe… yeah, today’s prompt was not a fan favorite! lol But weirdly, it had more responses than almost any other. A sure sign of pushing outside one’s comfort zone! And yeah, I love the connection that social media and technology brings, but there are many other things that come along that I question. In the end, if I can connect with an artist on the other side of the globe, it’s all SO worth it!
It’s surprised me like this situation : I kept my phone and saw your sketch, I looked at my desk which were my laptop and a cup of morning coffee, then I looked back seeing your sketch again I ha ha.
I love this beautiful sketch. And I’ve admired your Philippe who always stand by you. What’s a beautiful life!
Thanks, Loan! 😃💕 hehe… yeah, this is likely a rather common view for us! I’m so happy you enjoyed this! Yes, Philippe is quite awesome… I can tease in my posts, but he gets me through all of the challenges this life can throw my way!
Were you peeking in my window? Love your painting of this! Part of my morning ritual also. If it weren’t for going to the gym each morning, I’d be on it longer. On weekends when I don’t go to the gym, that time is used for sketching/painting. Sometimes I don’t even get on the computer then and I just jump right into painting. Love those mornings!
My husband is my biggest fan, and he has always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. It has been a great gift to have that kind of support! It’s a sign of true love when a person, like Philippe, encourages you to fully be yourself.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people support me and my art and writing endeavors. Many of them claim they have no talent themselves which I don’t believe, but I’m happy to have the cheerleaders.
I use my laptop to call up reference photos rather than printing them out. So much nicer because you can do some editing and still have the original. You are lucky to have someone who supports your endeavors.
I like how you tackled all the keys! I can imagine that’s one reason laptops aren’t particularly popular as a subject.
I haven’t had a lappy top for years – I had one for uni, which I think I fried with too much rendering, it died after two years or so – but my desktop computer is also full of old jottings that haven’t quite sparked yet. There’s 3D stuff, writing stuff, that OU Welsh course I downloaded two years ago… Most of these came about thanks to someone cheerleading; maybe someday another will come along and inspire me to finish. Dim ots! Noswaith dda!
Big YES to the mystery series, by the way! But, naturally, you would have to work some of our old favourites into the plot somewhere, whether it’s zonkeys, seals or Citrus Polos.
Thanks, Jacob! 😃💕 Yeah, I just sort of avoided and dotted in the keys! LOL Realizing the entire time why this prompt was not a fan favorite! hehe And yeah, I tried Adobe Dimension recently and had something awesome created, but my laptop crashed during the rendering! haha Yep… laptops are not for 3D it would seem. And glad you like the mystery series concept! It will come one day! And I can only imagine it would be made more amazing with zonkeys, seals and Citrus Polos!! YAY! Much love to you my friend! ❤️
Yes, many BSODs on my old laptop, bless the thing. This PC is old, but much sturdier in that respect – though I did once freeze it for a few minutes when I accidentally put an extra zero in somewhere and generated 100,000 cubes. Whoopsie! But it recovered, thankfully! Adobe Dimension looks fun, I didn’t even know about that. It’s all I can do to try and control the software I already have!
Haha, yes! Just imagine if you included Citrus Polos in the story and then everyone reads it. REVIVAL! 😉
