Editing Video

I’ve been adding my GoPro videos to my YouTube channel, but instead of just uploading them directly, I thought I would add a bit of annotation to them. I don’t feel comfortable doing voice-overs or narrating in real-time, but I have been really enjoying adding text. It’s fun!

For editing, I’m using Adobe Premiere Pro which I am somewhat familiar with. I’ve heard that some people use iMovie on their iPads to edit video as well, which sounds intriguing and is something I might try in the future.

Anyway, if you have time, you can check out my YouTube channel or watch one of my bicycle videos below:

Getting Ready for Inktober 2020

I’m getting psyched for the upcoming Inktober! Just like last year, I’ll be doing daily drawings on my iPad but not following the official Inktober prompts. And of course, these won’t be ink drawings.

I’ve been really lax about my digital drawing, so this will be good for me. I know I learned a lot last year and am looking forward to what this year will bring as far as new techniques and preferences.

Today’s photo is of a drawing I started. I am basically getting a line drawing ready to use as a basis for different kinds of styles.

The original painting is The Virgin of the Annunciation by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo which I viewed at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Unfortunately, one of Murillo’s other paintings was in the news recently because of a botched restoration attempt. 😔

Oh well, nothing is permanent…
