I spent a good portion of this week making new media tiles to attach to all my posts. If you’ve found your way to my posts via a different social media site, you’ve seen the originals. I posted them on a previous Fine Art Friday as well. These new ones are themed for Pride month! I hope you like them.
I mentioned the Coven’s emblem in Shadow-Blessed and it will be mentioned again in the next episode. I thought y’all would like to know what it looks like. I’ve made a draft of what I imagined it would look like.
I’m drinking fireside with my family and it’s the best! This is probably gonna be the last weekend cold enough for a fire down here in Florida. So we’re gonna just pretend that these photos count as “fine art.”
I’ve been going through all my old files on my computer a little at a time, trying to get my digital space organized alongside my physical space. In the process, I found some sample sketches for a webcomic I considered starting. I don’t even remember when I drew this. It was probably a long time ago, as I can’t think of the last time I saw this type of load screen when watching Netflix. I’ve always wanted to start a webcomic but have been intimidated by the idea that my art wouldn’t hold up to the standard I wanted. It was totally the wrong perspective. Instead, I should have been thinking about taking on that challenge and watching how my art skills would grow the longer I kept practicing. A part of me wonders where I’d be right now if I’d done that. The rest of me says screw regret. I’m gonna challenge myself now. I’ve got some planning to do.
I took a picture of some wilting roses that my roommates had in our kitchen because I was really enjoying their aesthetic, and I thought I might want to do something artsy with the pic. So I spent some time today working playing with the picture on my iPad. The mixed media image below is the weirdness that came out of my brain. I’ll probably revisit the roses when I feel a bit more inspired and see what happens then.
I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired when I sat down at my iPad this week. I really want to find some art YouTubers to start following to get inspiration and start stepping up my art skills. If you follow any YouTube channels that focus on teaching art skills that you really love, let me know about it in the comments so I can check it out. My offerings to the art gods this week are posted below. It’s a variation of my shoulder tattoo. I repeatedly shrank and enlarged the base layer by 10 percent each successive layer to see what happened. It is a kind of trippy image at the end there.
