For this project, we were supposed to use the app called French Girls to practice or attempt to draw other people’s photographs. The original plan, was to upload a selfie and have others draw it, and in turn draw someone else’s as well. The app, however, was only available on iPhones, iPads, and the like, and since I have an Android that didn’t really work out.
I attempted to search for similar apps, but there weren’t any quite like it. In the end, I settled for one called PaintJoy which simply allowed you to draw on a blank piece of paper (screen). Since I couldn’t upload a picture or really look at anyone else’s, I decided to draw my own picture and a picture of a friend on said app. It was rather difficult as I didn’t have a stylus so I had to use my index finger on my phone to make each stroke and detail, but compared to what I was expecting as the end result, it didn’t turn out half bad.
It was interesting using an app to draw, and it was most definitely a new experience. After using it, however, I think I would much rather stick to improving any drawing technique through a paper and pencil, being much more comfortable sketching.
