I just wanted to say that I am very excited to re-visit the world of art, my world. It has been a few years since I have been working on anything at all and that’s been rough. It’s 2022 and now that I am returning to my creative passion I am looking to focus on a few different things.
While I am always looking to improve my art skills and develop my own style I also want to look more at what my art is about and give it more meaning. For me, the artwork is about creating a connection between reality and imagination. Taking a thought and mixing it with reality to create and display the story of emotion. I want my artwork to feel like the soft drizzle of rain on your skin during a warm summer’s day. Calming, soothing, and pleasantly releasing the smell of the beautiful flowers nearby. Or to bring the feeling of the wind hitting your face the first time you get on a rollercoaster. The tossing and turning of motion mixed with fear, joy, and excitement.
I’d also love to focus more on creating more written content about my artwork. I’ve never been a fan of writing or telling people what I think they should feel from my pictures, but, I’ve noticed more and more people asking me why I drew something, or what I’m trying to convey with my artwork. Even though I draw mostly characters, they all have emotions and feeling to them. hopefully, I’ll be able to get this message across through the image and also give you an idea of how I wanted you to connect with it.
The last thing I want to focus more on is creating a background. A lot of the time I do commission work, which I love. Many times these artworks are without backgrounds (ie: just a character) but I am hoping to improve my skill in drawing more scenes and adding a bit more pop to images without backgrounds by adding in simple ones (like basic colours, sketches, or shading).
So these are 3 things I would currently like to focus on moving forward. Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully you found some inspiration for yourself in my work.
