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…
Hello all! ^_^ …
Yesterday, I saw this amazing artwork by an amazing artist on Google+. I noticed that she had painted the ‘foam’ in a waterscape scene, a bright color of red/orange instead of white. To me (someone who paints highlights as white), her method seemed to give a more realistic feel to the image. So I began experimenting with waterscape scenes, painting the foam as white and not-white. So below is the first
and only image I have created. It’s done digitally on SAI. And does not use any textures or images overlay-ed!
So…check this out, and give me your feedback! (^+^)
Gothic/steam-punk art is on my mind! And im all gothic nowadays, with my gothic/scene-ish hair and all (gotta get a new bottle of teh elixir, HairSpray too cuz water don’t work at all >_<)
And I can’t help myself from making this:
[I have no idea what this is supposed to be…. a hi-tech washing machine? It just kind of ‘popped up in my head ]
Umm yeah, sorry for the huge ‘watermark’ , though it is necessary as this is a painting ‘in-progress’. The art-world isn’t free from people who ‘borrow’ (this sucks…) (if you know what I mean) ^^
I’m planning on making more structures like this, and which may include a character too….
As Your suggestions will influence the outcome of this ‘sketch’ / ‘artwork’ (‘ -‘)
