wtf am i DOING by k04sk wtf am i DOING by k04sk
Mixing old and new techniques . Trying to establish the things I liked from my 2009-2012 self that I can incorporate to my current (2014-2015) self.

I think a lot of it for me was being less fearless. I think when I was learning I was more open to trying to new things and really do anything and everything. I think over time I became a little less edgy . I want to see if I can bring that back into my work but with a higher quality and execution.

Very impressive use of curves, I really enjoy your works where you arrange the composition to create a sort of mystic interaction between curved shapes/circles. Good work as alway! (Still a major fanboy haha)

I absolutely love your use of colors in this. It give the environment so much life and beauty yet adding this sort of mysterious and out of this world feeling, it's hard to describe. This is a great piece!

Oh dude, this is like Ambrosia!

If I was in that position, I would be like.
" This color is dark, I guess it serves as a shadow?" :V
Then the result is just one pile of cluster-f*ck.

Are motivated yet? c:

Also, I hate this layout because people like me get less recognition from now on. Also I'm sick. I hope I don't pass Ebola or Cancer via internet connection :V

When I took my Art 101 class and one of my instructor's students would say that the way they were drawing or painting was "part of their style"; his reply would be "You don't have a style, you just have what results from your ignorance of the basics of art. You have to understand the rules before you can break them on purpose."
I've looked over your gallery and you are way past understanding the rules. Looking forward to seeing the different ways you go about breaking them now. If this one isn't an example, then it certainly is stylish Clap

He might say otherwise about the wise part, but for certain he is the one who inspired me to kick off this artistic journey I've been on. I took his class last fall, took a break for about 3 weeks because of the sheer volume of drawings he required, and then went right back to it on my own because I missed drawing on a daily basis like I had to do for his class. When I found that I was drawing more often when I used my Galaxy Note 2 rather than traditional methods (portability, setting up, packing down) I invested in a Surface Pro 3 for its portability, screen size, and available programs. I am thinking about taking his advanced class sometime even though it isn't part of the degree I am getting. It would help elevate my skills I am certain and is fairly cheap because it is at a Community College :graduate:

But My brain just makes up it's own rules and breaks them in the process, causing a massive cluster-fuck.

The Only solution was, me looking for a style that fits the deviation.
If you look at my gallery (Have a strong stomach first)
None of them have a original style. NONE OF THEM D':
