A Test and Some Fun


The face up there isn’t the test. It’s the fun! I make faces when I want to enjoy myself without restraint or reservation.

ABOUT THE FACE: It’s a digital collage. One of the layers is an abstract I made using this website: http://jacksonpollock.org. You draw on your screen, take a screenshot. Try it!

Artist/designer/photographer Phil Perkins – https://perkinsdesigns.com – shared that Jackson Pollock link with me. Thank you, Phil!! It’s terrific!!!

EDITED: So what’s the test? It was the presence of the face. I know we can post social media links here that display and I wanted to try one from Instagram. Several months ago I tried a Twitter post and, although it was visible on my “actual” site, it wasn’t in the WordPress Reader. Not good! I deleted it. When I originally created this WordPress post it included an Instagram post. It was visible – the test was successful. But tonight I deactivated my Instagram account and the linked post went away. So…I uploaded the face to WordPress.

An Affinity for Lines

Diagonal lines – nice. But I want something else…
THIS is what I want!

Yesterday I posted a request for advice about either Affinity Photo or Pixelmator Pro. You can see the specifics in this post: https://robinkingfaces.com/2021/11/25/do-you-use-affinity-photo-pixelmator-pro-is-this-possible-thats-all-i-need-to-know/

Thanks to Phil Perkins – Perkins Designs – I was able to do exactly what I wanted, using Affinity Photo. Thank you, Phil!! And thank you, also, to Ed Ritchie – eRitchieart – for letting me know that I can do the same thing using Pixelmator Pro. I haven’t had an opportunity to try that yet but I’m sure it’ll go well. Thank you, Ed Ritchie!!
