Growing Pains & Spring

This is a long overdue post. My eyes are bloodshot and I’m pretty sure I’m seriously iron-deficient. I’m sleepy and hungry even after ransacking the pantry and having seconds for dinner.

But this is what I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. I’m still not satisfied with it but I’m pretty sure I’ve long passed the time limit most artists would set on a piece like this. It’s been reworked and revisited to the point of exhaustion and I don’t think I’ve got much else to give here.

Blood, September  2017

I pushed myself way outside of my comfort zone when it came to the painting process. It meant I was often pissed off at how badly I was executing it 50% of the time. It’s really the only way to grow though, I know.

I wish I had more time to break down my art sessions to a couple of days per week. But at the moment, it’s just been a matter of squeezing in as much painting as I can in the weekend.

The aim of the game is to build up a portfolio with stronger pieces that illustrate the type of content that I really want to be hired for in the future.

In the meantime, it’s just growing pains and spring, I guess. For those in doubt, I live in the Southern Hemisphere.

Valentine’s Special

Happy Valentine’s Day to you. Not everyone is a fan, and not everyone cares. But I’ve been playing around with love-related themes this month. And I’m happy that I have my first completed piece for 2017.

It’s a little different to my usual pieces – perhaps a little more graphic but it originally started with a hand-drawn sketch.

Anyway, I’d love to hear what you think of this latest one. Feel free to comment below. To stay more up to date with my content, follow my Instagram.

 

 

Painting Imperial Assault figurines & Valentines Sneak Peek

So admittedly, I’m not doing super duper well with my weekly blogging goal. Not entirely sure why – since I seem to be on track with my other 2017 Art Plan. Any how, I might just need to change up my blog content to keep it from getting stale.

I’m almost done working on the Star Wars figurines. So once that’s done, I’ll make a post with all the completed pieces in the next week or so. The sheer scale of the pieces make them super cute to photograph (and just look at in general).

As you know, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’ll have a special collection lined up for it. I know a lot of you will hate the concept of Valentine’s Day. But the collection will have something for everyone. I don’t want to reveal too much just yet but I’m pretty sure everyone will find at least one theme they can relate to. So keep an eye out for that!

Here’s a little sneak peek…

Daily Challenge – 2 Weeks In

Hi guys. I’ve decided this daily challenge update is going to be a weekly thing. It’s been a strange gloomy week.

I think this guy is done. I'm envious of him. He's so peculiar and owns it. Lately I've been haunted by my insecurity that I can't pick up on things that everyone else around me can see instantly. It's easy to feel silly and insufficient. Such a shame though, because I think seeing things differently is supposed to be wonderful. That's how I feel when observing others. Yet to me, it only ever makes me feel small. Why am I unkind to myself? I shouldn't be. You shouldn't be. I'm going to try and stay positive. One day, maybe I will look back in wonderment, how I ever thought this was something to be ashamed of. • • • #art #instaart #artoftheday #doodle #ink #inkdrawing #artistsoninstagram #drawing #draw #artdaily #dailyart

A lot of artists say they can translate their negative feelings into a creative process and I think a little bit of gloominess has seeped its way into some of my pieces.

The good news is, I’ve been keeping up to date with my daily goal. I’ve yet to miss a day and that’s definitely a cool feeling.

 

I haven’t posted everything from last week this time. To check out my rest, have a peek at my Instagram.
