Hello, everyone! I’ve realized that I’ve not posted anything for this whole month, and it’s my birthday month too! So that’s a shame… I’m here to make up for it by posting my super cool final piece for my school theme of Construction. Here it is!
So, these are a series of prints (done by collagraphy, a really interesting method of printing) that show the stages of construction. I have achieved this by building on lines, negative space, and color.
Personally, I find the second one a bit dark (I suddenly forgot how to make brown at that point) but I do like the white spaces.
I worked really hard on this and am proud – to a certain extent – as to how it turned out. Hope you all give me some feedback!
Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you’re all having nice chills and spooks celebrating wherever you are.
I realized that I had not posted an Illustration Friday themed post in ages, so I thought I’d do so today. This week’s theme: Puppets.
It was just a quick five-minute thing done straight from the computer, so please excuse its extremely awful proportions, stance, etc.
Hello, everyone! I am extremely sorry for this long hiatus. I got really caught up on school work – the art part of which I’m loving but is quite hard – and couldn’t really update this blog. However, I have an exciting update: I’ve finished the acrylic piece I showed you earlier! I’d like to show it to you all. I’m quite happy with it:
This is actually quite a bad photo of it, so I’ll upload a better one later. But I hope you enjoy it. I had fun doing it.
After coming home from school (sixth period… the horror!) I was tired and bored, and I had my color pencils next to me, so I just thought I’d draw something from scratch… and on scratch paper. On my calendar I have a boy band (please don’t judge) so I drew one of the members from there. I do not worry about you discovering which band I like, though: the portrait is so awful the person is unrecognizable. And so, here it is!
This took roughly two or three minutes to draw. I quite like how the lines are all of different colors… might be an interesting thing to investigate later on. Sorry if I’m rambling. I’m just so tired. Curse you, school! That is why I am drawing on your homework!
So right now, we’ve started getting on with our personalized school projects in full. However, before that, we studied a bit of the more technical parts of drawing – which I don’t mind, to be honest: though it’s not “fun”, I think it’s “essential” to becoming a “good” artist (note all the quotation marks there). I thought I’d post a little bit of my sketchbook to show you what I had been doing:
I quite liked it, but now I’m enjoying doing my own project even more! Quite exciting to have no restrictions whatsoever. I’ll post more on that too later on.
I recall posting a work-in-progress landscape painting, but never showing you the final product! And it has been quite a while since I’ve finished it! So, here is the final painting. I added texture to the grass by using a fan brush and added some highlights and shadows to the surface of the lake. I hope you like it!
It’s my first landscape and my second oil painting, so I am very happy about it.
Also, I shall try to post more frequently. I’m sorry, but school has started.
For Art summer homework, we were asked to choose an article from a newspaper and think about how we would translate this information into artwork. Well, this article inspired me so much that I did more than think; I drew. I haven’t finished it yet but thought I’d give you a little sneak peek:
It’s also my first “real” try at acrylic paint. Now that I’m really learning how to use it (i.e. not watering it down so much that it looks like watercolor), I think it’s my new favorite medium!
