I've always wanted to be awesome at drawing, but unfortunately I draw like a retarded 4 year old. So I took up photography instead lol. Unfortunately photogrpahy and photoshop is hard too and I'm now just as jealous of people with mad photoshop skillz (oh yes, with a "z") as I am of people who can draw.
Basically I'm immature enough to be bugged by the fact that I'm not better at anything than anyone else lol.
Anyhoo, I'm gonna look through my photos and see if there's anything that might qualify as art, rather than "just some picture I took".
I propped them up on my easel and snapped them yesterday. Still look pretty grainy and blurrish but that's all I got for you at this time. I haven't done any new pics in a couple years now either. I gotta get back on it.
Creepy Clown (oxymoron, i know)
This was done with pastels which I've not used much. I usually work in ink or graphite only.
(you can see light on the left side that is from the lamp I was using to try to light it better. these aren't museum quality pieces but they do look a little bit better than these photos show)
All pictures are done entirely free-hand (most times that is painfully obvious...), I never trace anything unless it is something else I have drawn. That is, I sometimes take the base picture of say a face or something, and then trace IT in order to make different versions of a face. SO in the very, very, very rare chance that I would traces something, it is ONLY my OWN lines which I previously put down free-hand. That make sense to anyone but me?
I abhor cheaters and I don't do that. I will use a picture as reference as is obvious in my Hannibal picture for example or the NotLD girl picture, but that is it. I look at the picture, look down at my paper and move my pen or pencil accordingly. I pride myself if that, even if I'm not very good at creating realistic works.
I got a shitload of pics but the photo sharing site is fucking up.
I only got this one to load so far, but it is one of my personal favourites. My mother saw this picture and she rolled her eyes and whispered my name... It garnered the 'disapproving tone' from my mom!
A lot of these were just doodles that turned to sketches that I decided to finish, only half the time there are fundamental spatial or content problems which give them an almost eerie or surreal look sometimes as stuff is just a bit "off". Case and point with this one which started as a sketch of a woman's face and then I added the chainsaw in order for it to sling blood that would help to fill in the right side of the picture because I didnt' start out centering it properly because it WAS just a doodle.
