I like starting new projects a lot. So much that I don’t finish the old ones before I start new ones. These are some of the works I’ve started, but never finished.
These are all watercolor pieces with flower themes. It’s no secret that I like this topic.
The first flower was going to be a water lily. I went with a color range that was a bit dark. This could help indicate that it was around nighttime.
The second piece is a still life painting. I wanted to practice by painting a few different objects in the same work. I usually go for very simple artworks where I focus on one object. This was a bit of a challenge for me.
The last picture is from a rose I began painting. I’ve painted quite a lot of roses before. This one was smaller than I’m used to. Therefore I had a bit of an issue getting all of the details right. It’s far from done and I wonder if I’ll ever get to finish it.
I also hit one year on Duolingo!
I’m learning French as my 5th language. It makes learning into a game. I wish learning art could work like this too X)
I love realism. This is the art type I want to work the most in. I’ve been practising by drawing random things lately. I asked friends to suggest me any object so that I could practise with it. This motivates me more in a way. I think it’s nice when it’s someone else’s idea. It makes me want to finish earlier and better so I can show them and get their personal opinion on their own suggestions.
The first suggestion I got was a shoe. I chose a kind of classic style one. I wanted to practise many objects, and therefore I chose to make the drawings a bit small.
The second drawing suggestion i had was a katana. The details I wanted for this turned out to be a bit difficult to illustrate. That is mostly because the drawing is only around 6cm*8cm.
I really liked making these small practise drawings. I’m planning on doing a lot more too. Maybe I’ll even create my own little collection. I’d love to hear more suggestions from anyone here too.
Thanks for reading :3
Lately I’ve been drawing more animals. I’ve practices both traditionally and digitally. I also worked on illustrating new textures.
The first piece I made was of an octopus. I chose to draw a tentacle. This was made digitally on a phone app. I’m very happy with how I managed to blend the colors and get my idea to life the best way possible. It’s easier to get a cleaner look when it’s digitally.
The second drawing I made was of a lynx. I made this traditionally on paper. I’m more used to drawing on paper and therefore I often enjoy that more. I’ve never drawn fur before so that was a challenge. I’m planning to draw more animals in the future to practice new textures like this.
Hiking in the mountains. Quiet and peaceful, exceptions are glaciers breaking. The sound is comparable to thunder. These glaciers formed from snow that doesn’t even melt during summer. Lots of snow built up and compressed into solid ice. Thick fog entirely deprived my sight at moments. It was an exciting experience. I think my dog would agree.
Here’s another digital drawing I made. I feel more comfortable and familiar with this type of art now. It’s only a few weeks since I started practising digital painting, I enjoy it a lot and I’m looking forward to improve my skills.
I started practising digital art recently. I’ve both tried digital drawing tablets and phone apps. Until now what I’ve found the easiest and most satisfying has been the phone apps. They seem simplified and I am more used to phones after all.
Here I painted an anime character. By doing this digitally I feel like the outcome is a lot more cleaner than traditional art. For this I used a free app called ibisPaint X.
I recently finished this anime drawing. It was very time consuming, mostly because of the detailed hair. It has similarities with a galaxy.
Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!
This is the sketch before coloring. I changed the color of the bow.
This is a coloring-pencil illustration I made. I only used 1 color for this sketch. The original color was green. I used photo editing to change the color saturation, I then acquired the desired color. I chose the color blue because it sustained a more appropriate fitting for the theme. I took the picture while consciously choosing the lighting effect. I think it all came together well as a piece of art.
This is a rose made with watercolors. It was a very relaxing process, but it also took a while. I used many different shades of pink to make this as lively as possible. In the start I used the wet on wet technique. Afterwards the paint was thiccer and I used it to make details with small brushes. I mixed some yellow into the green to make different shades here too.
