Welcome to my world! Clouds are like people. Most of the time they are bright and pleasant. But when things build up inside they become dark and belligerent! I am Cloudyday. I hardly ever gloomy 🌩 , I rarely cry 🌧 or lose my cool🌨. I try to look on the bright side! ☁️⛅️🌤⛅️☁️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⛅️ My first attempts to draw stick figures began 4/19/2012 in Draw Something, and from there I progressed to DrawQuest in May of 2013. Later I was lucky enough to find Sketch Club Zine, and that led me four days later, January 26, 2014, to my happy home in SketchClub ! 🔴 Cloudy2day on Ravelry.com and on Craftsy.com 🔴 @Cloudydaz on Twitter 🔴 Cloudyday4 on Instagram
My husband, Corky3240 is the light of my life. Be sure to check out his art, he has a wonderful style and humor.
⛅️ Pursuits: Currently I am an artist in the making, hammered dulcimer musician, and water aerobics instructor.
🖍 My Drawing EXPERIENCE:
📱 I only DRAW digitally. I don't trace, and don't do downloads, tried grids but it doesn't feel right, 🖌My preferred brush is the soft round one, I would rather learn to draw an object than brush it on, 🤡🤡 I sometimes do copy, especially cartoon characters, and I learn techniques from doing so. I tend to prefer to discard the blurring techniques for depth, because since I see distance clearly, even when focusing on a close object, it's abnormal to me to paint that way. It's what camera lenses do, not what I do. Corky tells me I'm only hurting myself, since it's the standard.
🍰 LAYERS: At the beginning of my journey through Sketch Club I found the layers to be incomprehensible until I finally realized drawing on a layer is like drawing on a window pane that you can turn on and off. Do parts of the drawing on different layers, turn on those layers and by looking through them you end up with a complete drawing! Sweeet!!!
My biggest challenges right now: 1. How to make and how to use swatches (color wheel) 2. Shading and lightening. 3. Making anything original look great.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ DIGITAL TICKLER A MISTAKE I DO every time I draw digitally......Starting my drawing on a white background.
In traditional art white is chosen because it's easier to put dark colors over it. But that doesn't apply to digital art.
WHY? There is no neutral color. Transparent is the closest to it, but you can't draw it. Every color changes the way we perceive a neighboring color, including black and white. Black makes light colors look lighter. White makes dark colors appear darker.
⬜️THE SIMPLE FIX: Start with the background on THE MOST neutral color - medium gray: RGB 128-128-128. When you've finished, change the background color to compliment your drawing.
Wow. I plan to start doing this right away.
