photodigital of notes for alphabet declintion AB Blue Bird E M J

This photodigital Image Capture is the top of page seven of my alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ.  Here can be seen a declination from elaborate to minimal which like talking degrades-minimizing shortening-shaving; so goes writing. We’ve halted our writing by using type and machines to print.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Declination of this icon for “A” connects the ear to the eyelid. then loses the eyelid.  Then the connection straightens, then shortens.  Then there’s no connection and just the ear.  Then the ear shortens several times and loses the other side of the ear.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This shows me going on to “B,” dolphin leaping out of water.  Curves straighten.  The angle changes–becomes more acute.-Ernie Moore Jr.

photodigital of alphabet declination AB Blue Bird bottom of third page E M J

This photodigital is of the bottom of the third page AB Blue Bird.  There’s Pegasus, horse legs, unicorn tail and horse tail and hind quarter.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I still have not picked out an icon for letter “A.”  I might not have wanted to pick from just what I knew only to find out more and regret my choice or have to scrap what I have for a more reasonable selection.  I might be looking at all I can for what I understand and choosing from that.-Ernie Moore Jr.

A review or establishment of the overall shapes allows me to theorize more quickly once I start selecting.  I might have already done some selecting. but I seem to have gone on to section analysis of the subjects.-Ernie Moore Jr.

alphabet declination top of page two sketching horse head and dolphin side

This Image Capture photodigital alphabet (AB) Blue Bird top of second page shows me looking at the basics of drawing a horse head-six parts:forehead to the nose, tuft of hair, ear, jaw, mane, eye.  I liked how this worked out.  My tactic is to do few and light strokes once one stroke is out of place–wrong to my thinking, I do one more to a few more to see if I can find a depiction I support by my understanding of it.  Otherwise it stops and is considered complete when I start getting it wrong-ish.  So my drawings I’ve done so far are very sparse.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I continue to see what are the fewest strokes to make the object.  After I have a minimal number of- then I find the style for each stroke–where it curves and how much.  I lose the tuft of hair and play with the thought that the forehead and jaw are the same line.  needing to distinguish them with the right length of well placed line to indicate separation.-Ernie Moore Jr.

As I blended the top of the head with the bottom, I transitioned from horse head to dolphin head and the dolphin body-trying to get the fin from my brain to the paper.-Ernie Moore Jr.
