Hey guys. Camping wasn’t great, but I survived. I’m reading Jane Eyre, 450 pages, right now, which is why you haven’t heard from me since before the trip. Sorry! I promise to be up and running as soon as I can put down the book for like a second. My literature class is very interesting to say the least. Here’s an old art piece to console you. “Puppy” from 2011 I believe. Talk to you soon.
So, Clip Studio Paint apparently has a competition on the theme “space” so I decided to give it a shot. Here’s my progress so far. I’m also posting more progress on Melanie Martinez’s face. I really like how the hair is turning out. Obviously not done yet and very unsure of how to fix the nose, but I’m gonna do it. We’re going camping this weekend, so I’ll probably not be able to get her done until next week though – even though I said I’d be done this weekend. Sorry!
So, a few of you may have figured out by now that the portrait is of the ever so beautiful Melanie Martinez. She’s so unique, it’s hard not to be enamored by her look. So, this is how far I’ve come today while also studying Shakespeare. I feel like such an art student although I’m not.. Anyway. Her nose got super small, so I’m very unhappy with that. I don’t know if I can fix it or not without ruining the whole thing though..
So, I’m treading lightly ahead with both my photography and my illustration. I never know exactly what to draw or take a photo of – but I always get something worthwhile in the end. I guess what I’m saying is: life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get. And art is the same, I suppose. The outcome is never foreseen. Anyhow, these are 2 small sketches I did late last night. They are both based on photos, one random one from Google and the bird one is based on a photo I took myself. Tell me what you think! They obviously need working on, they’re very simple. But like the deer, they’re simplistic/minimalistic in design which I believe there’s a market for. Tattoos, prints on shirts, mugs, bags? Who knows what the future holds? /Angelimate
