RE: Finished paintings VS consistency on social media
I've had issues with this too. But I saw a clip with the legendary David Bowie a few months ago. I'll share it below. He talks about an artist fulfilling other people's expectations. It's something I watched and I was WOW - truth!
So now I don't worry about who sees what or if I'm consistent. I'm just going to share something that feels good to me and me alone. Even if it's half finished or not perfect, it's my work. Hope that helps!
RE: LEE PAINTS FAN ART! HOLY SMOKES BATMAN!!!
@Lee-White I saw this on social the other day - for me, it beautifully captures the craziness and terror lurking in Gotham, with the expressive tones and abstraction. But there's Batman standing tall facing it all. I'd be curious to see how you'd interpret Star Wars or another big franchise.
Lovely work Lee!!
RE: Transitioning to digital?
@Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen Hi Marsha, I've been working for years in the same manner:
Draw/paint a piece, scan it into Photoshop, Edit the scan, then digitally colour it.
Last November I invested in an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. It was simply the best thing I've bought because it's cut down so much time spent at my computer editing and colouring everything.
I'm drawing directly into Procreate app, colouring and editing in there too. It's been so great because now I can push ideas out at a much quicker pace. I can work in my kitchen on my iPad because it's portable.
Just my two cents coming from a very laborious art process!
RE: MerMAY challenge WIP Critiques wanted...
This is a great thread and really cool to see your progress.
I think the sea creature in the background could be a lot clearer and maybe feature or two highlighted on it - maybe an eye peering around the seaweed, or maybe it could be slightly bigger? Great work!!!
RE: Collective art project to send Will some love and support.
Shannon - this is a lovely idea and really beautiful tribute!
RE: Hello, I'm Amber!
Amber, your work is wonderful. I did that course too and I found it a massive help (I'm currently trying to figure where to go next with my work!). You've got really nice style and I commend you for trying o make your dreams a reality, with 6 boys that's tough going too I bet but you are making fantastic work.
RE: Will Terry's wife passed away last night
Very saddened and literally shocked to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with Will and his family. Will has been a great source of positivity for me in the last few months and I'm sending everyone good energy and also to everyone at SVS.
