Attempts to relearn color theory

So I know color theory.  Or knew.  I haven’t used it (I primarily work in graphite) for so long that I am having trouble accessing that knowledge.

So I decided I’d go playing with it a bit and try to make art with conscious color theory choices.  I was feeling super proud of this one too, until I realized that the color theme mimicked something else…lol.  But here is one I did maybe two months back.

Enjoy, and don’t laugh to hard if you realize what I realized.

I got a piece of my fan art posted on a comic’s website along with my fan theory–which is super exciting for me, I didn’t….haha, I knew it would end up there but I didn’t realize the author of the comic would like it so much.  I’m very flattered and very encouraged by her comments.

 

Her comic is Daughter of the Lilies

And here is a direct link to my art on her website

Oh and here’s my art

And I have a ton of new art to share so bear with me while I get my rear in gear to scan it all in and post it.  I have resolved to get better at this whole blog thing, because the longer I let it sit and the bigger my pile of unscanned art gets the harder I procrastinate.  Sorry for the long absence, and I’ll see you guys soon!

 

Thanks so much Meg and Jessica ❤

Another digital arting

So I caved and have been playing with photoshop as seen in my last post… I really cant draw on a computer, but I have decided to try, to try and get better and more used to it and… well frankly I’m afraid that traditional art will become obsolete (or at least not competitive in the marketplace), so I tried this thing, and it turned out pretty well.

So enjoy a harpy or something 🙂

Coloring inside the lines is harder on a computer…and then someone finally showed me how to use the select tool and NOW

SUMMIIIIIIIT

Whew!  I totally forgot to post about it.

So I’ve been back since…. its Thursday now and I’ve been back since Saturday so… five days?  Only five days?  Wow.  I miss my people.

 

Got some great down-ish time there, and by that I mean I had time to do some beautiful drawings during lectures.  I’ll try and post them soon but I have been running on around six hours of sleep (not including the occasional but far too rare nap) every night for the past three weeks and I have the stuffed nose and sore throat to prove it.  Sleep.  Your immune system needs it.

 

Otherwise, I had a wonderful few weeks, had people feed me wonderful food and I didn’t need to wash any dishes, got to meed some lovely new ladies as well as re-acquaint myself with a friend who was with me the first time I went!  Amazing!  (Hi Grace)

 

Made some new friends, really really hoping to go back again, as a staff member.  I will miss out on some of the talks that way (much much sadness) but I will be able to stay there for like… six weeks.  Half a wonderful wonderful summer.

 

Love Summit.

 

 

Apparently…

So to those of you who read this coolio– I was just thinking how representative the posts I make here–what words I use, the language I include (like slang or things misspelled to make a point)–are really indicative of how I see myself?  Reading them I know they sound pretty ridiculous, and I’m probably just a bit narcissistic, since I seem to portray myself as some kind of rockstar artist with a massive following.  I don’t actually know how many people read this.  And that’s cool.  Number of people hasn’t really mattered to me that I can recall, but it is my hope that my being ridiculous is amusing rather than off-putting.  We’re all here (laughing…hopefully… and hopefully with me and not at me but hey.)

 

So just.. thank you for hanging out, and watching, and reading, and liking art.  Art is cool stuff.  Even if I fancy myself more of a classicist drawn to realistic interpretation or at least a romantic, concerned with the emotive nature of my drawings, or at the very least, an aestheticist trying to make pretty pleasing things.

 

So cool that you’re here 🙂

 

Also I get to go to Summit again this summer SO PSYCHED

Trying something new

Oohhhh now that I think about it I actually have a few horse related drawings that I didnt scan in… Never show horse drawings to people who live and work around horses.  They will know everything you did wrong, even things you didnt know you did wrong.
