IC CM Acry Castles Spires EMJsigsc

This photodigital Camera Motion Image Capture pulling light-stretching light of acrylic on card stock resembled like a city/town/castle…two, with pointed sky reaching spires.  It’s as if they are on an island, split by a river.  There’s a water feel.  It’s something-or-other of a splash. Image within an Image, there’s at least three fantasy faces-center to the right-hand side–horses, an elf, a yeti-baboon…-Ernie Moore Jr.

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.

Camera Motion where strands suggest a horse face E M J

This photodigital Camera Motion Image Capture pulling light-stretching-light photography was noticed for the niceness of the strands.  Eventually I caught notice of the suggestion of a horse face-right-hand side.-Ernie Moore Jr.

top of ninth page of notes on alphabet declination A B Blue-Bird E M J

Diving dolphin; horse face constitute the top of page nine of notes on alphabet declination AB Blue Bird EMJ. Looking at horse nostrils and teeth. For the letter “E” I start to stay on the nose bridge and eye from profile. I consider representing the English “D” with a cursive “J” blending of uppercase and lower case.  That degrades to a number four like character.  Finally for the moment shown, the lowercase “j” opens to a loose “2”like thing.-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.

bottom half of first page ofalphabet declination A B Blue Bird E M J

This is a photodigital of the bottom of the first page of a work to make an alphabet based on prechosen subjects, objects, items.  The alphabet is called Blue Bird (AB Blue Bird)–Butterflies, Lipizzon, Unicorns, A warrior stance recognizable by an  Atari arcade game character in Gauntlet Legends-Blue Valkryie, Rainbows, Dolphins.  Using these subjects I had to pick an icon that would stand-in for the English letter “A.”  I picked horse’s ear.  But the ear by itself does not show the horse.  Going that direction, how much around the head do I show, that I can draw, but highlight the ear.  If the head comes into play I should have that understanding.  With that, I am here working on the understanding of the drawing of the head.  At the top is my studying dolphin shape.-Ernie Moore Jr.
