Drawing on Everything || Drawing with Sounds

This week we had to use a Screen Capture software to record ourselves drawing to either Track One or Track Two of “improvisational” piano playing that Shantell recorded for us.

Process:
To get more adept with the drawing software, I played around a bit in SketchBook Pro without any music or sounds, so I could get used to it. I don’t like that you can see all the tools on the screen when you work, but otherwise I like the color palettes! I then listened to both tracks.
Track One was fine, a bit calm, nothing jumped out at me.
Track Two hurt my ears a bit, and that hurt physically but I liked the “reverb” effect that some of the ending notes had.

Sketching: I did three attempts and then ended up with the last one, to show.
The first two were kind of “non-committal” attempts for me, as I was so concerned about the look of the video, so I let go of that, and prepped my space for the last one. I preset my color palette beforehand and made a “painted canvas” aka “Mindspace” to work on. That made it more fun, and gave me a better intention with it.

Improvements:
-Using iShowU HD for Screen Capture, as the degradation of the resolutions is something that is aesthetically unpleasing to me.
-Also, perhaps a different software to draw with? or a different mode? I hate seeing the tools on my screen to I cropped out the sides, which also resulted in the loss of some of my drawing in my final video.
