Introducing myself :)



  • Hello creators,

    My name is Murielle, I'm from Belgium and I still find it hard to call myself an artist, but I'm doing it anyway. I'm an artist.

    I became a proud SVS member in September 2017 in preparation for Inktober. It was the 'How to Ink' tutorial that got me on board. Well done Jake 😃

    For years Inktober was this one challenge that I wanted to be part of but in Oktober 2016 I was preparing for my first ever fitness competition. I had to train every day, watch my diet, sleep well,... So no time to draw. That moment was a complete eye opener for me. Fitness was not what I wanted to do. So in 2017 I decided I was going to do my first Inktober and I loved it. It made me discover talents I didn't know I had...

    • drawing WITHOUT reference
    • telling a story with one image
    • okay the inking part turned out to be the least interesting, but still, I did it

    These are my favorite pieces

    After that experience, I wanted more so I started a Christmas themed dry brush painting based on the class given by Will Terry. I kept it simple so I could focus on the technique.

    In March 2018 I've given up fitness completely and focus now mostly on my art. I hope to be more active on this forum but I can't give any promises. I'm a quiet person, so I usually read and marvel in silence.



  • @murielle Hi, welcome to the forum! I can't wait to see more of your work. I hope we can help you in your journey.



  • @murielle welcome to the forums! Checked out your site, you have some amazing work going on there. Hope to see more from you around here.



  • @murielle Welcome! I'm also looking forward to seeing more of your work!
    I'm pretty quiet and shy too so don't feel alone. You'll love the forum!



  • I admire anyone in the field of fitness ..it requires so much dedication and discipline! With that as your background I think you've been well prepped for the work ethic needed for just about anything you decide you want to do. Welcome to svs Murielle..you're going to find lots to learn here.



  • @murielle welcome to the forums and good luck on your art journey. Hope to see more of your work and maybe try out a few contests each month 😃



  • Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    Currently, my art doesn't relate to any storytelling, but I hope to gradually change that in the future and build my skills while doing so.

    @Gary-Wilkinson I hope I can participate soon. I've been checking out the last contests and I usually never have a problem coming up with an idea, I just didn't have the time to execute it. Now that I have more time to art, I should be able to schedule it in.
