Yeah, okay –okay. You don’t have to tell me. I know I have just started to skate and am quite n00bish in that, well but I has wanted to sketch something that related to the ‘fun of the outdoors’ ( even in a remote sense). To have recently found the joy in jumping on a bored and ‘pedaling’ by toes against the floor- to make me move a few feet forward (yes, the floor isn’t exactly ‘great’ for a skateboard— needs to be smooth)- Yes, I found inspiration in skateboarding ( and some outdoor enjoyment- especially in this Cruel- Cruel Summer, when no ones hangs out with you). And so yes- I sketched which is practically me on a skateboard- I mean like who else can be this ‘thin’? Strangely, I have yet to fall from the board, and this is giving me a growing sensation that I’m not practicing enough. But did you notice something? It’s just a glimmer, not vivid- an impression in ones life’time’ it is! The scene faded as one’s memory fades with time- and how my memory will probably fade and rust with time. Oh- time is relentless in it’s evil.
I uploaded this version first on Facebook, rather than the Traditional one ( as scanned)..
Well here’s the details as I first uploaded it//
“First sketched with charcoal pencils. It was ‘molded’ in the form you see below by scanning the traditional sketch, and redrawing over it in Photoshop. So, in it’s essence one can call it a TraDigital ( yup it is a category on DeviantART) work, as both forms are utilized.
I wanted to do something different from oil paintings, some form of art, which is somewhat ‘speedy’. A one that will be ‘one of my’ signature styles. And here it officially begins. Though, works like these have been created by me before, but the skills were albeit weak back then.
So what Art category should this belong to? In my own opinion, it can be anime, line-art, abstraction and like-wise. As an experimental piece of work this is.
In the digital enhancement stage, I was choosy between a few styles I had made. Should I go with a darker blue tone one, or a lighter one. Changes in Tone and Color changes the whole expression. Be it mellow, happy, sad..etc. I can get many expressions from this one.
P.S. Likes would be appreciated! 🙂
This is how is drew it, ( the TraDigital Artwork you see as my profile pic and the cover image – on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ibraryunus )….
This is what it looked like before applying digital paints and ‘Photoshop’ to it. In the digital version, I focused more on making the hair look dark and ‘gothic’, but this in turn also darkened the artwork altogether ( Yes, I can darken pats separately, but then the ‘balance’ in this would be lost), and hence, the details in the ‘streams of text’ was blurred into just a dark line….
But in the original one (here), you can still see the detail in the streams of text…
So it’s Monday (I guess…..no rly) …well what ever day it is… Im gonna share this piece of art that I made like 2-3 days ago…so here :
So there, the following are the details (taken from my RedBubble Store) (Yes Store, and you can get all the prints of my artworks from there …..wont you? :3 )
Hi all! I hope you like this one. This is from my series of black and white steampunk/Gothic art. Her eyes are ‘exaggerated’ as they are stylized. Artists tend to give more attention to the eyes as humans look at eyes first and then the ‘face’. The stylization was done to give an increased sense of….visual beauty, so that if hung on a wall; It will be quite stunning and attention grabbing. Made only two colors, gray and white (absence of gray), I present to you, The Gothic Eyes.
So as I said above (cuz who would go through the ‘details’) …i made the eyes huge, so that it’ll look more awesome….and awesom-ify (if thats a word) the wall it’s hanging on….
So there…… Ciao
Why the QR code? well scan it and it’ll take you direct to my store to buy the print……And get the
damn print you shall! !!
I feel suddenly bored………..Why oh why?
Yes, just stay..thats what I titles my second artwork made in the same way as my previous artwork (the girl in the machines thingy)…. It starteed as a doodle (as all of my artwork pfft) ..and then it got pretty serious..I ended up created something that was in the back of my mind for quite some time. Draw art that defines the ‘feeling’ of robots and machines.. (and this all started when I first watched Tezuka’s Metroporisu, yeah, Tezuka, you awesome awesome dude!)…..So, here it is…….. Stay
Haha, this time I wont copy the details from Shadowness, but do the opposite..yes, I have uploaded it here first.. Just for YOU ppl
[not you, but youuuuu]
I have had wanted to make an artwork that describes the feeling/emotions of robots. This was to much extend influenced by the films of the great person, Tezuka. Especially his film Metroporisu which is very special to me (and in the number 1 spot in my fav movie list) ^^. The artwork above describes a sad robot who has an arm missing, and is holding a balloon in his other hand ( or something) …. A cat then comes and sits with the robot, as it is curious of this machinery. So, the sad robot wants the cat to ‘Stay’ with him, and not go away, as it will then again be ‘lonely’ and sad.. The steampunk/monochrome style was used to compliment the feel/emotions in this scene by a great amount. Hope you like this one… 🙂
So there, and Reblog it if you like! 🙂
This image will be available on my Shadowness and my Redbubble Store shorty, so that you can buy a high quality (full reslution) print from there…
Hi all, what up folks!
The artwork that I described in the previous post (that I had started working on) had been complete for a day now. Sorry i forgot to upload it here (hehe), cuz yesterday I was so…busy in printing it out and getting
my ass killed beaten in League of Legends due to a n00b team (ugh!). Damn you n00bies!
So, here it is, the one and only (Applause….or not); the (teh!) Lady Steam Punk [alternately named ‘In Dirt]
So here’s the in-detail description from my Shadowness page_
Hi everyone! Sorry I have uploaded something after a while, due to my exams and all..hehe..but anyways, i started experimenting the last few days with black and white Gothic style ( steam-punk?) art. One reason being that I wanted something that I could print instantly and hang up on my wall (because I have a gray-scale laser-jet printer ..yet). So here, i started off to make something that looks gives us the surrealistic feel of technology, of machines and so. And so some extent, inspired by the art in the movie Metropolis ( Tezuka’s), I created this. It shows the ‘urban deterioration’ , the darkness, the dirt and congested machinery. It is what i describe as ‘The Beauty of Corruption’
To get a full resolution print of it, visit my RedBubble store at http://www.redbubble.com/people/zodiarkdarkja, the image will be available there shortly. The font used for the title will change, as the font currently used is for personal use only…. Many thanks! [ So plz just get a damn print! ^^]
I created another artwork in the way ‘way’ ….. I like that one alot too, as that one is kinda very emotional! (sob sob) ( “~”) [hint, it has a robot]..
Oh darn, I’ll have to print it out again, as the old print incidentally got ‘folded’ ….
Which means ‘Cleaning up my Room’ !
My room, which is rarely used by me, was a mess of old paintings laying here and there, books and stuff everywhere (yeah, teenagers! Pfft) , So, today I tried to clean my room and yay! Half of the cleaning is done..Just the dusting remains….. Though, dusting is the scary part too cuz I have had like super-sensitive skin (when i was about 6-9 year of age) when it comes to dust… Too much dust, and skin turns red.. even now it’s also quite sensitive… Gotta take a bath after this (obviously!)
[I wish it were this simple, though i suppose the burnt furniture and blackened walls would go great with the ‘You Bet You Ass’ sign I did earlier]
Ciao! and see ya all l8r today, when I shall (hopefully) share the completed ‘stempunk’ style art with ya’all!
