BEING ESSENCE BEING by Kittyyy BEING ESSENCE BEING by Kittyyy
Weird title, I know -w- Just ignore it.
This is a project for University. We were given the "idea", which was THE FACT OF THE ESSENCE. Do whatever you want. And I did this!

The sense of it is that I understand the essence as the principal fact of a living being (no matter if they are human, animal or vegetal). But I also think that we are not given that essence from the very beginning. We have to develope it while we live, as we grow up. That´s how you get your real essence, who you really are. And that, for me, is the fact of living.

That explains the tree: in my brainstorming, that idea was one of the firsts that appeared. Later on came some others, such as circles, seeds, water, etc.

It´s been fun making something more complex after trying to do simpler things. I´ve spent almost a month with this project (not each day, you know, but still xD). I also tried some new things, like brown ink, which I mixed with liquid watercolors to get new colors (like greenish brown and redish brown. Couldn´t make blueish xD). I even put some alcohol drops on it (thanks to Ana de Carro). And, this makes me a little proud, this pic didn´t start as a drawing. I wanted it to be a painting from the start, not just a colored drawing, and I think I achieved that =D

Wow, this is really cool! :O You take art at a college? How is that?
Do you draw all the time or do you still have to listen to lectures and do written work?

Most of time is about drawing and painting, but we also have Sculpture, and Digital Image. The only lecture-writting subject is Art History, so it´s quite good! Instead of studying all the time, Fine Arts is more about making hundreds of projects like this =)

It looks like a shaman who is dancing to invocate nature's spirits! :)

jajaj, de momento me ha mosqueado bastante porque, después del curro, me lo miró durante menos de 5 segundos -w-
A ti qué tal te fue la entrega?

Jajaja no te preocupes, suele pasar, recuerda que con mi clase está cabreadísimo xD y se respira un ambiente poco seguro.
Pues yo tardé más o menos lo mismo. Encima que tengo que coger un bus y hacer un largo viaje desde mi casa, solo vió un lienzo por 2 segundos. Pero bueno, parece que le gustó mas el cuento, ya con eso soy felisss (me curré el cuento mucho,mucho, ya lo verás). Y nada tambien hice mi presentacion y se rieron bastante.
Por cierto mucha suerte con vuestra presentación :D
