And now from my collection of old work; some [rainbow]PAINTINGS[/rainbow].
These works were created after a very dry spell of no creativity (about 4 years worth). One day I decided to start painting... And somehow I got realism out of it... It's so strange because even when I was in my artistic prime I could NEVER get the hang of realism. I am a cartoonist/surrealist by nature. o___o
This first one is very special. Two christmas's ago I did this as a gift for my bestie, Dawn. It is of her cat Pumpkin, who is sadly no longer with her.
This work is done with acrylic on convas.
Second up is another gift. Actually the drawing itself has been a gift for two people now. I first drew this girl to paint for a friend who was moving away. Though that was back when I was in grade 8 so my skills then were pretty poor. Not to mention I had the crappiest brushes EVER! BUT, the one I am showing here is MUCH better. Yet another chirstmas gift for yet another dear friend. She saw the drawing on my facebook and loved it so much that I painted it AS that friend. :3
Done in acrylic on canvas board. (Unfortunately the lines aren't as clean as I would like, but this was before I had primer.
Third is the first picture I did coming out of the dry spell. It's an abstract, my first to be exact. I had a lot of fun with this. I really just started off painting the background, having something else in mind entirely, and then with each brush stroke, each colour, it became something else. I always like hearing what other people see when they look at it. :D
Another acrylic on canvas. (Currently hanging up in our stairwell for my mother has claimed it xD)
The abstract one; Selenite sees a whirl of things, beings to be more precise.
At the same time, I think of a duck. The white spot is the duck's eye.
But, swirling around, I see faery-mermaids.
And sometimes I think of a small dragon, too.
Oh my I love love love your style. The first batch are incredibly cute and your paintings are well drawn/painted. There is an interest in them, in particularly with the last one. It's absolutely gorgeous!
Keep up the great work, I'm sure you'll get the hang of realism again. :)
So these next few are drawings from when I was a teenager. All of the following are pencil sketch on paper.
This is Dejiko from the series Di Ji Charat. I can't quite remember the year I drew this but probably near when I was 16. I also did a painted version for my grandmother :3 Sorry I don't a picture of it :/
This was a free hand forgery
This is an original. I was 13 when this was done. Hahaha you can tell I was still an amatuer with this one xD. I think I drew this as a request for a friend.... Though I'm not sure why I have the original copy if it ._.
This little cutie is my personal favourite of my drawings. I was 16 when this was done :3
She is a mix of forgery and own creation, but free handed.
This girl is second on my favourites list ^^. I've done a couple painted versions of her as gifts to friends and family. I was 16 when this was done.
Free hand forgery.
For those who know of my cbox personas this is one that I think I love the most! I am SAILOR FUKU GLITTER FART!
This was just a pencil drawing coloured in pencil crayons and markers. I added actual glitter to the real picture but it didn't turn out right during scanning. So I had to edit it to look like this! xD Maybe now that I know how to play with my scanner I can try it again :3.
