Just my latest work, ranging from crafts to fine arts. I work in a wide variety of mediums to help prevent burnout and because I can. Why restrict myself to just one when there are so many?

Have a Kiss!

Working on stuff

I've got quite a list of things I'm doing and am currently planning.  At least in regards to art.

Working with the watercolor paints Xenaris gave me.  OMG THANK YOU!!!  I'm getting quite a bit of practice in.  I posted one of the three paintings I've made.  Lots of improvement.  Not stuff I'd really share because it's MESSY and just me re-familiarizing myself with technique, style, and different brush types. 

As for what I'm planning, I've got a few ideas. 

One I REALLY wanna do will need hot press paper because it's really smooth.  I'll also need to practice drawing more portraits.  The full idea is doing a wash of colors on the paper, wait a day or two for them to dry, then go over the painting with a portrait drawing with very minimal shading.  Go over the portrait with a calligraphy pen and colored ink.  I'd love to use metallic calligraphy ink, but that shit is EXPENSIVE.  I'd love to create a series of portraits like this, full color background and lines for the portrait.  The portraits wouldn't be closed, meaning lines enclosing the face completely.  It's more of an idea of the face being there and making it part of the painting instead of a drawing on the painting.   

Another idea I can immediately set to work on is flowers with outer space.  The flowers would be present as shape and outline, but made of stars and dark matter.  I have visual in my head of what I wanna do, and I know I can do it.  Lots of texture will be involved, which is perfect with all the cold press paper I have.  That stuff is ROUGH.  Imagine petals made of nebulae or created by with stars in a sort of constellation. 

I also wanna make things with ridiculously bright colors again.  The obnoxious brights that make some folks just go "why?". LOL Flowers and outer space stuff because that's my shit.

Oh, I'm also writing more often.  Mini-fics really, nothing major.  You can read it all on my AO3 page.  If you like what you read please comment and leave kudos!  Comments give me life.

Working on a new painting.  I've done some warm-up paintings that are just a bit of practice for something major, but this little warm-up is looking to be one worth showing.  I'll have it finished in a couple hours, and likely posted tomorrow.
I wrote new fics!  WOOT!  I have them on AO3.  A reader left some very motivating and awesome comments that made me wanna write more.  :D
I'm wearing makeup today!  I took pictures and they can be seen here.  Also made a video because I love the way I look today.
About 25% done with a current portrait I'm working on.  It's a picture of a friend cosplaying as her OC from SWTOR.  Shoulders and up of course because PORTRAIT!  Good practice, but very frustrating because all I have are 2H pencils.  Bleh...At least it looks good so far.
I received a thank you letter via email from the company I ordered my drawing pencil set from.  That's kinda neat.  When it arrives I'll be drawing portraits like a madwoman.  Gotta build up a bit of a portfolio in order to encourage others to commission me.  In the meantime I'm practicing with character screenshots, photos of friends and family, and self-portraits.  I am accepting commissions!  Contact me regarding this.  $15/hour, I average 6.5 hours, so your starting point will be about $100.  Done with pencils on paper.  I'll post more pictures as I finish them to give folks an idea of what I can do.  I do need to purchase white drawing paper.n  I have grey and brown tone.

On one hand my guess is the letter takes longer than they promised because there wasn't written on the envelope what was inside. On the other hand I hate writing it on the envelope because it makes them much more prone to be stolen in my opinion. Like "Oh, I can use that!" If nothing arrives by the end of next week, I'll send you a new one, promised is promised!
