Punk Feature!

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 29, 2015, 2:43 AM

Clearly I'm really bad at focus.  Life seems to be such anarchy.  And progress has well...  got lazy? or been thrown out the window.  Few weeks back now I attended Blackpool's Punk Rebellion..  which was fab (a whole week of punks and punk festival stuff here in the town I live in).  So dressing to occasion inspired a piece of artwork and then this feature - which I'm so late in actually getting out :( terrible.  Apologies and thank you to the following artists for sharing in the forum :heart: and thought I'd add a few extra from other deviants.

MIA but not KIA

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 25, 2014, 9:33 AM

It's certainly been a while.  I don't have much in the way of excuses.  My pen to my wacom tablet broke, I've been building a new pC, I've been gaming a lot, making new friends where I live, medical stuff and plain lazy-ness.  To be truthful.  

The last few months have been hard, in April I split up with my Fiancé and by May I'm living in a completely new county/city and making a new life for myself... working so hard to improve on things and have a better life for myself.  It's becoming a new adventure... and well I'm finding me again.

I do however feel I want too no, NEED too get back into my art, art improvements.  I was doing so well.. in my opinion.  And I want to keep on with the learning with the progression and the improvements.

So I thought I'd post here.  I did spend all yesterday repainting some lost work, which I happen to still have the lineart for and I've been working hard on that.  Today has been taking a lil break to do some research however I hope to continue with it this week.  In addition I'm looking to get back into doing studies.  So any suggestions would be appreciated.

Anyway.. hello.. how have you all been? xX
Ps. Still looking to make more artistic friends and befriend then on Facebook if anyone's interested?

Self Portrait Feature!

Begging For Points, ACG Super Group Status Renewal

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 9, 2014, 9:17 AM

Dear Deviant, I am founder of AnotherContestGroup and as founder I am troubled to find the funds we need to extend our super group status!!  Thus I beg of you that you donate points (can be just one) to either myself missimoinsane or to ACG's donations page at ACG-PointsDonations

With out it we will no longer be able to award contest prizes, promote contest winners, offer the poll feature (with out which the staff don't get paid), and many other things including being able to have our special sponsors section and journal skins and more... 

We really don't want this to happen to us after over 3 very very successful years of AnotherContestGroup and so we were wondering if it's not too much to ask would you mind asking your watchers if they'd donate to us at ACG-PointsDonations please?  Or if you could donate yourselves please?  I know it's a lot to ask and I wouldn't but I am desperate, since becoming disabled I don't have the funds that I use too...  I know this isn't anyones fault but please help me continue helping others.

Our subscription runs out 31st Jan 2014.  Thank you for any help.

From This Day Forward The Journey Part 2

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 17, 2013, 10:12 AM

So I figured I should explain myself...  

Well some of you might remember my rant a number of months ago in my journal about how all my art was the same. -Massive thank you to the people who stud by me and helped me feel more positive.

I then came back a few months later with back to basics journal with full intention to strip my artwork right back to traditional drawing and such...  Well despite the good intentions a few short weeks later, and crappy sketches, I just got to a point with art, crafts and everything else going on in my life that I just flopped out...

So recently I've been trying to get back into the swing of things.

First with recreating an old piece:
Ships Curse 2 by missimoinsane Ships Curse Before 2011 AND After 2013 by missimoinsane

Second trying to finish a piece I started a couple of months back with focusing on hair:

SpinalCorde by missimoinsane

It was at this point I needed help and I spoke to the lovely (and extreamly talented KristinaToxicpanda).  I was advised to go join up to Crimson Daggers - which for those who don't know is basically a bunch of forums full of wonderful artists (mostly digital painting artists) and we each help each other to learn, improve and teach others.  It's a lot of give and take but I've met some lovely lovely people who have done their best to help me improve with their wonderful critiques, tutorials and advice...  and create a sketchbook there.  Which I did: My Daggers Sketchbook Forum

Third after a lot of comments about skin tone, skin texture but most of all about lighting and light sources including values I tried to do another piece:
<da:thumb id="393409434"/> {full view reccommended as thumb looks muddy!}

It seemed that pershaps I had used too much colour and colour blending which as in traditional art had created a somewhat mud effect - not good.  And despite being under water the lighting was still not correct and she looked somewhat cartoon with her duck-bum (lips) face. 

Fourth I was advised to look at values by doing a black and white study pieces to which I returned to something I started a number of months ago and stated reworking it...  I produced a WIP (if you don't follow my scraps you're missing out on my WIPs!!) But it was short lived as I just didn't like how it was turning out.
<da:thumb id="393435549"/>

Fifth I was downhearted and the monochrome values were not working out as planned and so naughty naughty me decided to move on and come back to it later.  So instead I decided to look at realistic skin tones or more to the point colour and colour to form shape:

A fellow Dagger (JonHop), from Crimson Daggers, did a video for me using my failed value wip (iRide) to demonstrate values (Video Here >>… Thank you Jon!) so that said I decided to act upon the advice.. which is going to take me plenty of practice lol...

Sixth I jumped into the monochrome looking at values (and mark making) and I decided best to put myself out of my comfort zone by not doing another humanoid:

Anyways so that's my progress thus far over the past week.  There will most likely be more... Simply because I am learning.  BUT I wanted to let people know why the sudden spam of art when there's not really been anything (especially digitally painting) over the last umm maybe a year!!  But I hope to be back, new and improved and all that jaz and try to make more time for my digital painting and digital painting improvement.  

Also like to give a massive thank you to KristinaToxicpanda who has been such an inspiration and a really lovely person who has shared her wonderful inspiration, told me about Crimson Daggers and also been sharing her creations there and on livestream which have been inspiring to say the least.  She was also very kind to give me her own personal brush set too!!  And her advice has not gone unnoticed. ...go check her and her work out!!

Finally a thank you to those who have inspired me, stuck by me, helped me, taught me, critiqued or generally just been there and had an opinion.  I value you all.

So since devWEAR has closed down I managed to order the messenger dA bag!!  It arrived today but they also put in 2 emoticon stress balls (pink and yellow), the dA sticker pack, dA lanyard, dA black logo keyring (only one I didn't have) and a troll face drawstring rucksack :D :D I am over the moon with all my goodies and I didn't double up on anything I previously had.  Woot go me!!  I only wish I could have got another dA zipup jacket hoody and a llama plushie but yey all the same.  Wish they hadn't closed down :'( but I'm a happy deviant :heart: :heart: Thank you dA!!

From this day forward, The Journey. Part 1

Hey all,

So after my last journal of feeling hopless with my art I've decided to take it back to the beginning.  "From this day forward; The Journey".

I've decided to rather than continue with a same old same old none progression path...  That I should start over, digital and traditional sketching...  Trying different techniques and perhaps even mediums...  so going to create an "art journal" out of an altered book!!  

Along side with new art books, magazines and perhaps even and "ImagineFX" subscription - maybe.  

Going to save towards getting a cintiqu 13HD...  Anyone got a personal review?  So far everything's singing and dancing however the screen/colour is a little "dull" and not monitor bright (apparently) but amazing for the price.  But generally purchasing such an item (despite it's extreme reasonable cost!) that won't be for a long long time based on lack of income, finances which seem to be higher with each bill, family events I have to attend this summer and continuing the work being done on my home not to mention the medical stuff with my hip grr.

Anyways there's a lot going on for me at the moment, so I won't keep you.

Imogen :heart:

Ps. Yes I will still be doing my crafting, I want to get back into doing my YouTube videos...  lot has been happening as mentioned and it's just finding the time for creating & filming etc.


WIP: WoW Freling Pandarian Hunter of The Horde by missimoinsane

Stressed with art. Digital Painting. Upset.

How wrong I was.

So I decided that a good break from digital painting and spending time thinking about it less (I mean not over thinking) and studying.  Watching tutorials, reading books and all that good stuff.  But I feel my art isn't happening.  It never looks cartoon nor real either.  I'm stuck in a limbo where I just can't improve but I don't know what to do.  I've tried copying even tracing just to get an idea of shape and texture and how to create certain looks but my work never looks right.  I'm fedup.  I know most of my work isn't based on real life people (real things) but generally speaking I don't want to do cartoons and I'm just fedup.  I've listened to advice and tutorials and now.  I'm fedup.  Honestly thinking of jacking it in.  Too much in my head and just can't create no matter how I try.  Just so unhappy when I'm doing digital paintings, which is not what I want to be.
