Lets see what happened during this month....
The two artworks for this month....well I managed to upload the painting and the phantom meme I mentioned in my last journal.
Painting in Progress: This time I have a 12"x16" canvas set with a blue base so it's ready for me to begin my new acrylic painting. But first I would like to make a rough draft sketch of my idea before I begin painting the picture
As for other digital artworks, I've been working on some wip drawings I've had on my computer, I hope to finish a couple of them soon. One is a drawing of my oc Yoichi
and the other is a drawing of Gaara. Then I also started two new drawings I might work on next month:
As for the 30 second exercise....well I haven't been doing that daily, only from time to time when I remember
but something I have tried doing sometimes is to draw some poses from music videos which I feel it's similar to that exercise. The only difference is that people are moving instead of keeping still for 30 seconds
Something else I would like to work on is to illustrate a short story/drabble, well a one page story just to be able to make a comic/manga.........I have ideas for other stories, one story is even all planned out with what I want in each chapter but the project is intimidating when I just feel I don't have the skills to make it
so that's why I figure I really should start small and learn from there. But another difficulty is having so many ideas but then also having things keeping one from finishing them, whether is lack of skill, speed in drawing, time, other important stuff, etc. but I guess the keyword should be to try, just to go for it
bleh...I'm just writing stuff
What is creatively inspiring me this month......or more like this last week
: visual kei and Naruto again. Well Naruto because the first chapter of Naruto gaiden is out so it's making me want to look at cute pictures of my favorite characters
and I almost want to draw Naruhina if only I didn't have other drawings opened that I'm working on
And then it's Visual Kei which until recently I hadn't been so into because whenever I had looked up groups, no new band would catch my interest. I wouldn't even say that I "grew" out of it because I am forever listening to the GazettE and a couple of Sadie and Alice Nine songs but nothing new really.....until recently. I found out about Black Gene for the Next Scene
and I fell in love with Ice's voice
But other groups I recently found interesting are LIV'ERT and Tocami and Diaura. So at the moment I'm looking at groups with dark visuals and themes, anyone have any recommendation? Deeps voices are lovely
