Have you ever had a certain art supply that was just so pristine and beautiful * cough expensive* that you just hoped to god that whatever you did with it would do it justice and not have been a waste of the product? I've long surpassed this point with my colored pencil set and now am experiencing the feeling with my gouache. this was the only real finished piece i have ever created with the set but I am in love with this media. I wish I could just prove Im worthy of using it. every time I want to it looks at me with that "are you ready" look and I second guess my idea, usually I end up using my cheap watercolor buttons or colored pencils. from this point on I will take risks and use my gouache yes gouache, I am ready for you. I encourage you all to take risks and take care of your art supplies as well
So first day of orientation at massart, there's this girl in my group thats super social and fun and it turns out neither of us signed up for the orientation boat cruise so we hit it off and decide to go out for sushi that night instead. Long story short, we realized we were both reading Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" and now she's my best friend. Seriously its creepy how alike we are, and its not fluffy college omgyayifoundafriend, it's genuinely a beautiful relationship. I feel like I've known her for ever and Im only in my third week of school. So we were having a lifetalk one day ( we have them like every day) and Im all about keeping it classy, if you follow me on pinterest you know that. there are a lot of opportunities in college to lose your class, but no matter what I feel very strongly about maintaining it. Granted I still like to have a good time, but I'm responsible and always keep a level head. so I drew this for her as we both agree on this concept and god it felt good to finish a piece. I haven't done anything legit since that gouache portrait at the end of senior year. So guess who's back ladies and gentlemen. I've been drawing 2-3 hours a day just like the good ol' days. I guess I just needed some time to find myself, and now I'm settling in to more of a style so this summer wasn't a complete bust. So this is just a shoutout to all yalls to remind you to keep it real and ask yourself "what would Meryll Streep do?"
Holycowimfinished. this has been my project for the last week. i have to say im really happy with the way it came out, and im glad because i worked SOOO hard on it! i love doing design based things and composition stuff so i like to do these sort of poster things. ive never actually done one of this scale before but you guys know i love to do lettering this is why i might want to go into illustration as well, or maybe just stick with character design in the animation industry since everything is cg now. so 2 packs of microns later ( this paper sucked up all of my ink!! it wasnt bristol,my art teacher gave this to me, i should have waited to use my bristol board but i was anxious) its done
i used a series 7 sable brush size 1 for some of this, pigma microns, prismacolor col erase blue for the sketch, copic warm grey markers 1-7 and higgins waterproof ink. no reference at ALL used for this picture, i like to challenge myself to see what ive learned.
the tempest by will shakespeare is a great play you all should read/see it
I was commissioned by by a camp group to so their t shirt for this year. It was fun because they gave me complete freedom with type and color, they just gave me the words to write It ended up printing really well and they were so happy with the final product They said it was the best they had ever had! They even brought me a t shirt except it went through the wash and I'm pretty sure it ended up in my brothers room :C except he's too lazy to look for it for me so i'll have to send my mom in for recon. :I
