I’ve sort been procrastinating on this project. I’ve focused more on the drawing than updating this. In a few hours I will post my project.
As for what I chose was the scene in which the split fellowship passed through the Gates of Argonath.
I managed to get most of the outlining of both statues, with a lot of shading, and also the boats carrying Boromir, Aragorn, Frodo, and Sam. I will be continuing the project after it is graded. I have my own form of media, my art, and the internet has changed the way I am able to deliver it. I hope you all enjoy seeing my art updates, because without the help of the internet and blogging websites, my audience would be far more limited. Most importantly, it allows me to access my own art, in order to show people what kind of work I’ve done, regardless of where I am.
Finals ended Wednesday! Hard to believe they were only 4 days ago. Anyway, I’m starting a couple new projects. The first is for a big occasion, done in graphite on 14×17 paper but I can’t say anything more about it. It’s a surprise!
Then next drawing is of a dog named Precious. This was requested by a Deviant, M-Bae on DeviantArt
It’s been so long! All this week I haven’t found any time for updates. Studying for finals has kept me very busy. My last final is on Wednesday and then I’ll be a junior! Anyway, regarding art, I haven’t gotten much done lately. I’ve made almost no progress on the cat. However, I’ve added a lot to the “Dog Named Peaches” drawing. I moved the eye down a tad bit but it’s looking great. The original is from the DeviantArt user, littlebear1337 and this is the photo.
So I recently added my dodge dart drawing to my DeviantArt Deviations and to the contest. Every once in a while, I’ve been checking around the entries to see who else has a good chance.
Today, I found my own drawing (the incomplete version) copied and re-submitted by another Deviant. In the description, it said, “This is my art work”. Can you believe it?? And then I read some comments and one said, “daym, same picture i’m copying i think :L but i’ve cropped it so it looks a bit different
really like the unfinished look pretty neat “. Really?? You’ve got to be kidding!
So I reported the picture and made sure it was clear that the work was mine and had been stolen. Not even borrowed. STOLEN. And you definitely DON’T steal it from the kid who put hours into actually drawing it.
But still, I don’t know how they thought it would be a good idea. When they choose the winners, the winners are required to send in the real art.
So now, I see how risky it is just putting up full-quality or un-watermarked art. I’ll probably have to go through my posts downsizing the pictures to prevent re-use. That kind of thing angers me.
Anyway, tomorrow, I’ll be adding a few doodles and some upcoming art news. I’ve been really busy lately with sophomore finals in only two weeks. Is it just me or are they piling homework on?? Anywhoo, thanks for reading, like me on facebook. Follow for new art.
I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. You can see just how bad I am about finishing my art from my latest posts:
First, there’s my eagle. It may appear finished or “purposely unfinished” but looks can be deceiving. The head is the most intricate part I have to detail. (And that’s the case with most human/animal subjects). That’s a good thing. Now can go back and continue to smooth out and fill in. I didn’t get past what I currently have, because I only had printouts of two sections of the birds head. When I didn’t have time to print, my interest ran low and I moved to the dog.
As for the dog, you can still say it looks “artistically unfinished”. But again, the rest of the photo is background. I want background. the art just doesn’t look quite as realistic if you don’t incorporate the out-of -focus parts of the image. It adds depth of field making it look more photorealistic.
A Dog Named Peaches
The dog named Peaches is coming along a little more. there’s quite a bit of detailing to do on the white neck fur and the fur on the side of the mouth. The rest is a lot of subtly detailed black fur. I’ll post extra progress tomorrow.
The more recent cat drawing has a deadline, Sunday. That’s a little more incentive to finish. I’ve still got two in-focus legs and an out-of-focus body. I can’t wait to see Charlotte’s reaction. I’ll upload any additions tomorrow.
I drew a little something tonight. I don’t know if I was trying to incorporate meaning into it or not. I just saw one of those “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear” labels and drew a symbolic sketch based off of it. Stay tuned to see it tomorrow. I just didn’t have time to scan the picture tonight. That’s all for today folks!
So I’ve informed my friend Charlotte not to look a my blog or else she’d ruin the surprise. (Of not knowing what I’m drawing her). I hope she doesn’t hate cats. That would pose as a dilemma. Because here’s my progress on the drawing:
I am drawing something for my font, Charlotte. The subject was chosen at random. It’s supposed to be a surprise for her. Can’t let her find out. So for that reason, I also can’t share the photo. I’ll have it done by this weekend hopefully.
So as an attempt at a timelapse video, I’ve been periodically taking pictures of my progress. I’ll upload the gallery and the video/slideshow when I’m done. I might even do a step-by-step of techniques and stuff. Not really that fancy, but once I get a camera that can handle time-lapse, I’ll really have something to show for. So again, find the picture I’m drawing off of here. I take that back. The actual picture is much smoother than my drawing but then I would have to draw bigger for better looking art
Here I go again, beginning yet another piece of art without finishing the last. I will continue my eagle. But I’m drawing this one for a girl I know. This is the progress on the dog that I had posted in my “Project – Subjects” post.
Im entering an art contest to win up to $2,000. There are two categories, digital and traditional art, and three winners from each. I am doing traditional art. The art has to be inspired by the Dodge Dart 2013. I started this yesterday:
