Titled as Dystopia ( Dark state, environmental-urban deterioration), a total of 3 and a half hours were spent in completing this digital painting. As always I used PaintToolSAI for this, as I wanted blending to be natural (as oil paints are). The idea for this came, after I came across a selective color painting by some artist on Facebook; his/her painting also used purple palette and I felt a sense of ‘royal’ and ‘dream-like’ feelings being emitted by that. Perhaps the fixed emotion ( not happy nor sad ) contributed to some extend to this, but the contrasting background (dark purple behind right purple) promoted this. So moving on, I chose ‘blending’ over ‘contrast’ as it gives ‘softness’ to the painting; even when bright or very dull colors are used. In my paintings i have noticed that colors them selves dont make a painting bright or dull; but they are relative on each other, a painting that uses very bright colors can appear very dull indeed, if the palette doesnt use any contrast.
The ‘figurative’ and ’emotional’ nature of this painting tell us about ones need to go out once in a while and ponder over the apparent darkness of a busy/crowded/mechanized place. This does not mean that darkness exists everywhere, but the thoughts of a ‘young’ mind about one’s survival in the ‘Practical World’. A scene depicting the time of the dawn is shown, as this is the time when the cold breeze brushes against you and one is fresh and ready to go out and then stop! ‘think about whats more to come?’. The butterfly depicts hope, and works as to counter the darkness of the city behind and the painting itself. The orbs add to the lightness of the sky (even though the sky is ‘in’ the background); this is a visual indication that ‘don’t look down and be frightened, keep your hopes high, look up! up at the bright sky; there are surely better things to come!’

As √Čtoile Bleue, the shades of purple here show ‘dream-like’ presence.

Here’s what I do!

[this is one ‘perspective’ of it]

1800 seconds have passed and here I am again. Thankyou! 

In the last post i mentioned¬†that¬†I make art; and here’s a ‘snippet’ of some of that. It’s made with a knife and no ¬†¬†¬†brushes. And yes¬†I too¬†love the rain effect!¬†

I shared it on Google+ about….2 months ago I guess. So here’s the indetail¬†description¬†of it: [copied from my G+ page that is]¬†

“Seeing the works of Leonid Afremov quite moved me to…experiment with palette knives. Unfortunately, due to my less than tidy room (teenagers…ugh!), I couldn’t find my palette knife; So, I grabbed a knife from the kitchen and started off! hmm, then there was another problem, I didnt have any canvas free for practicing this new technique, but I did find a few old CD Covers that I had left aside for something creative. So, I painted on them; With a knife! (and turpentine/(kerosene?) oil, a box of oil colors, and some newspapers so that my dining table wouldn’t get all splattered with oils paints )..

So this is the first painting with this technique; its my first experimentation with knife art. Stay tuned for more!”

So yeah, that pretty much sums this post up. Sorry I copied the details from my G+ page , as, it would to awfully boring to write all that again…¬†And what did I learn form making this paintng?¬†==> Dark Green is¬†awesome¬†for reflections!

Before I say Ciao for now, here’s another pic of it..Enjoy!

Oops, only G+ link turned into a hyperlink .. 0.o / But I guess you’ll figure it out!

Yay! I’m on WordPress [and listening to Bebot by BlackEyesPeas]

[This seems¬†like¬†the best album cover in their whole career!]ImageAnd now since a minute has passed, Im listening to the song Black Ghosts-Full Moon (to lazy to guess that which one is the band and the song name in that)… Anyways, so yeah; my examsa re over and now I have finally left Tumblr to join WordPress. Tumblr is easy as pushing a doorbell, but the weird mixture of a feed and a blog that tumblr is–gets¬†annoying…. Which in my opinion gives it a very unprofessional look….Don’t you think?¬†

NOW about me you ask? Well, i’m an¬†amateur¬†artist (both traditional and digital :3) And an amateur graphic designer too… So yeah, I’m all artsy artsy. But, I’m no boring douche dude, I’m funny ( no really! Jst ask my¬†weird¬† friends); I play video games alot (just smoked some ‘cyborg¬†thingy’¬†in Hard¬†Reset¬†a while ago, and then lost a match in League of Legends due to a totally n00b team ūüė¶ ) ….And i modify the crap outta all my devices! My ipod is modded like hell and my PC is—well¬†you’d pee your pants if you saw my PC is awesome… I love minimalism and use it everywhere, in art, on my desktop and gonna use it in my room too (if I could finally tidy it up that is). ¬† ¬†

So if I didn’t say it before…Hi WordPress and Fellow Bloggers, How was your day!?¬†And guys and gals, do expect some of my art and other stuff in the next few days…. ¬† ¬†

[You ave reached the end of this post! startled, eager for more or just plain Durp ;¬†then ‘ve good news for you cuz there may be another post in 1800 seconds, that is exactly 1/2 hour¬†]
