Week 11: Cat

I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I changed the theme for this week. It was originally ‘perspective’, but as I attempted to measure everything out in perspective and learn all about horizon lines and vanishing points, my art did what it normally does and took on its own form. As I finished it I got frustrated and decided to swap a few of my challenge themes for better ones. So Cat, as boring as some may think, is my theme for this week.

I used Indian ink for the whole thing, making different textures and different shapes. I’m actually really proud of this one and may mess around with it on Photoshop. Let me know what you think and if this is the type of thing I should do more often. Leave a like, share and follow me!

Week 7: Botanical

For this weeks challenge I have an unfinished piece I never want to look at again. I started off motivated, but I started working on a drawing for a friends birthday present, by the time I got back to the drawing I went crazy from just looking at it. Even today when I decided it was finished I feel completely artistically drained, though I started the day feeling optimistic and driven to work all day.

I used a lot of pen, a little bit of Indian ink and watercolours. Some parts of the drawing are just scribbles because I lost all patience with drawing plants. It might be because in my challenge last week I was also drawing plants, so I now never want to see another plant again.

Botanical, Indian ink, felt tip pen and watercolours.

I decide to only colour the flowers and didn’t colour the leaves because I wanted to make sure the main focus is on the center. Hopefully next week will be better. I may do a digital drawing next week because the theme will be Pastel. I don’t have any pastels, so I will use pastel colours in the drawing I am yet to decide on.

Week 1: Whimsy

 

Wizard of Whimsy, Photoshop and ink.

I googled the word whimsy and read it over and over again, still don’t know the real meaning behind it. I just got that it means quaint or something. Anyway I took my own meaning to it and applied it to my art by just drawing what popped into my head. Its a wizard staring into a colourful orb. I’m not superstitious, but it’s nice to think of creativity as a magical link in the mind to some other world, that’s what this art work means to me anyway. It was made from a pen drawing originally, I drew it from my mind, though I did slightly copied Gandalfs hat with a few alterations. After I drew it, the drawing was scanned and I coloured it in on Photoshop. I’m really enjoying learning new more about digital art, but it doesn’t seem to be getting as much of a response as my traditional art. I still want to improve my skills on Photoshop regardless of what people prefer.

Enough rambling. Let me know what you think! Leave a like and follow!
