I've been in deviantart for awhile now, not because I have any artist ability. But because I have an ability to take interesting photos that many others have enjoyed seeing and using in their "art". I think of art as creating something out of nothing. A painting is created on a blank canvas, a carving using a rough log. But me I take pictures.
Then my son got me interested in Minecraft a simple mining and block building game. It started out as a fun past time but now it has become our place of working together and creating an imaginary world, such as art is. We both started out making simple block buildings, and funny looking creations. Then we graduated into making a 16 apartment apartment building, where every room was different. All of this using only simple blocks and a few special pieces, much like using lego, only on the computer.
These creations were made using a very small to scale sizing. Then I made a pool table..........a rather large in scale pool table, then a fuz ball table and finally a large pinball machine. Then I decided to try and connect them together in separate rooms all very large scale.
Anyways now I have a artist talent. I am making something out of nothing and enjoying it..........a lot.
So instead of taking a picture of a flower or a garden, now I am able to create these, and I will be sharing my "art", here for all to see.
I'm not getting rid of any of my old photos, but I probably won't be adding many to them.
