This photodigital Image Capture of the top of the 12th page of notes of an alphabet declination–AB Blue Bird EMJ.  Horse imagery would be used for multiple letters.  After having studied the head of a horse for icons, I’m continuing my study of the body.  I make a note that I need to understand the leg anatomy better to study the horse.  I decide to work on other icon structures.  I did touch on dolphins.-Ernie Moore Jr.

photodigital camera motion image capture resembling an ocean swell and storm colors E M J

This photodigital Camera Motion Image Capture pulling light-stretching light resembles a sea creature out of a sea or ocean swell or wave.  I could imagine a dolphin-ish…later a swordfish-ish.  Then an officer type figure at eleven o’clock.  That became a sailor-as if wearing a French outfit.  Then the semblance of a face of an old man.  Small shows better and different than bigger, sometimes.  A final notice was a woman-her head resting, at seven thirty o’clock [and perhaps a Jesus relating look and whatever Image within an Image one might happen to notice. Even an underwater scene. Plus, Old Man of the Sea?-Ernie Moore Jr.

The lightest region I thought of as resembling a wave-swell.  The rest I could get a storm feel.  And now I see the portrait of a man with a high collar…a building in a compound with a hill to the right-hand side-and a lamp-ish post.  I wonder if this was done in sepia.-Ernie Moore Jr.

notes on alphabet declination AB Blue Bird top of eighth page E M J

This photodigital Image Capture of notes of an alphabet declination–AB Blue Bird EMJ.  These icons are dolphin based.  Showing “B,” “C,” and “D.”  When one looks at these (alphabet declinations) one should look for a progression in shortening.  Shorter amounts of ink.  Shortening of strokes.  And although some later icons have longer strokes the thought was that they save one from lengthier writing by staying connected to the paper.  I’m trying to keep it from being a senseless scribble.  Yet a sensible repeatable scribble that is a progression from a longer mark, that’s reasonable.-Ernie Moore Jr.

“B” started in the last page (7).  It was a dolphin leaping out of the water.  “C” was “B” with a second dolphin leaping. Three dolphins would be a bit much.  For “D I explore more of a full bodied dolphin.  Scaled down as per my skill level at drawing. [Note: I could try and try until I could draw a more complete dolphin, but the idea is finish the project.  I can work at an icon for a bit, but too much investment is a waste of Life.  I am to cut off trying for perfection after some effort has been put into it.-Ernie Moore Jr.

“D,” turns into the dolphin diving.  The tail is wavy las the water.  My relating a dolphins relationship with water almost as though it’s an aspect of water.  Some of these begin to resemble established written characters.  I’m mostly noting Chinese and Russian.-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.
