I’ve been away for quite awhile. Spent the last day of 2014 and first day of 2015 at a relatives, which was nice and relaxing. I had some old sketchbook stuff I tried to show, but my camera couldn’t really get a sharp image and it ended up being blurry. Based on my previous pencil sketches, is it even worth it to show those considering I don’t put much thought and effort into them? I ask this because my sketches are very lacking and don’t show much of anything. I probably should just post things I actually put effort into.
I bought a larger drawing pad (14x17in.) because I was tired of drawing on the dinky 8.5x11in printing paper. I like the larger pad so much better. I use to always draw small and never appreciated the larger canvas, but nowadays it’s the opposite. So I did Bridgman hands on the large pad and it felt awesome, also very comfortable since I’m not confined to a small space.
The last few days after new years I spent finalizing an idea that I wanted to do. I created an intro and credit pics for a series called “I Want To Be An Artist” on Youtube, and I’m try to get it on Vimeo as well. Super generic and uninspiring title I know, but I decided to be straightforward with it. I did the intro and credit pics in Inkscape, so no painting stuff today. The series will basically be sped up videos of my painting process of studies and stuff with some commentary. I know I did this kind of thing before, but I since deleted the account due to not really using it. What I’m hoping to get out of this is showing people how I go about painting something, and maybe someone will be able to point out what I’m doing wrong or not as efficiently. Basically I’m still looking for more feedback on how to improve.
Here’s the crappy intro. No actual drawing in this one. If you read the stuff above then you can skip it. I’ts more than 10 minutes long. 10 minutes of my voice. You don’t want that.
