Whenever I feel Pain, or stress, or pressure, or anything negative, art is my savior. I usually paint or Draw or, sometimes, write my heart out. Funny the only thing I’m good at comes with a price - negativity. Yes, I can’t paint when I’m happy. I find it hard to draw a requested design. Most of the time, I hear satisfied, happy thanks. But it’s sad I can’t appreciate my own work.
A good set of lines and circles will Guide you to a nice sketch. There are times I don’t do sketches or at least outlines to use as guides. But I realized all art should have guides. On your own way, you’ll get used to using certain kinds of guides for your piece. For me, I use lines and circles.
What I draw most often are parts of a human body. Eyes, lips, the whole face, breasts, butts, feet, hands. I’m practicing this art for years already, but I still can’t perfect it. I am able, but I am not that good.
I don’t participate in contests, but I accept commissioned work. I also accept requests from friends when I feel like practicing, you know, for when I’m not sad. I don’t join workshops, I don’t watch tutorials, I am self-taught. And sometimes, assisted by some artist friends.
I like uneven sides. I don’t know if I just am embracing the beginner’s style, or I just find it more catchy than the realistic pieces. Realism is mindblowing, indeed. But I personally am in love with sketchy, messy, kind of art.
Yes, I did that creepy hand and wrote this post because I am sad. I don’t know why. I can’t even remember my last happy before-sleep moment.
