ApOgEE is Blogging Again

My previous last post in this blog is in 2013. Therefore, it is been 6 years that I didn't write anything on this blog. Perhaps all of my fellow readers and followers of this blog have already forgotten that this blog still exists.


I would like to confess that I did lost interest in blogging and writing in 2013 due to my busy schedule of business and screen printing.

But the good news is... now I'm back.

And I hope this time I can share more stuff about arts that I'm working on.

You may ask, what I'm doing while not blogging? Did I stop doing arts?

The answer is YES, I'm still doing arts. It's just I didn't update this blog. I've been doing printmaking arts. I'm doing silkscreen printing business.

So for those who wanted to catch up what was happening with my arts since 2013 until now, you may visit APOGEEK Instagram Page. Perhaps, all those pictures may have your answers.

Munah - Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile express + Finger

Yesterday I found a free Android apps on Google Play Store called Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile Express and started to play around with it. I think this application is so amazing. I'm looking forward to buy the pro version soon. However, I'm afraid cross hatching with my finger would cause blister. Is there anyone to sponsor me a capacitive stylus for my Samsung Google Nexus? heheh

Copying Masterpieces - My Progressive Learning

Yesterday, I redraw a cartoon of female blogger artwork which I found on iStockPhoto. My attempt of copying other artist's masterpieces is another way to learn and get the feeling of how the original artist drawing it. Like a copy ninja, I use my Sharingan technique to copy the artwork. Hehehe... And today, I updated the same artwork, progressively add more details to follow the original masterpiece. Even thou this is not an oil painting masterpiece, I can still feel on how the artists draw it on vector graphic software like Inkscape.


This drawing is still unfinished, but enough for today. Because I'm already tired to continue. Maybe later. If you want to know more about Copying Masterpiece technique, there is a book about it. You can grab it from the link below.

Redraw To Learn

Sometimes, we can learn something when we redraw someone else's artwork. I do learn from it too. As I feel so bored today, I redraw this female blogger artwork for fun. It is unfinished, but enough for me to have fun today. I found the original image on istockphoto via google image search.


I did it in Inkscape and GIMP.
