if you have followed me for a while then you must know that I love the beach
My favorite is swimming in the cool water/waves on a hot day and feeling the sand on the ocean floor. If I’m lucky, where I am at i’ll see some fish or crabs.
Summer days at the beach swimming in the cool ocean. and who doesn’t love an icy treat? Every year I try to draw at least one beach pic, why? I really like the beach, I grew up swimming in the ocean and I love it. Swimming, in general, is great but I absolutely love beaches hot sand, cool water, great smelling breeze, and the scenery! Hopefully, I was able to portray my love for the beach with this one, a few waves in the background, some mountains, a bright sunny day, a rainbow Of course, the lovely Roxanne_Fox is having some fun exploring the water I also love this style of coloring, but I don’t do it as often as I would like, maybe that will change, do you like it?
Happy Canada Day to all you Canadians out there. It is time to celebrate everything that we have and love about being Canadian and/or living in Canada. While it is not perfect there are certainly lots of things we can be grateful for
this holiday I will be spending it with my family and maybe check out a few of the local markets!
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.

Pic #1. Roxanne by SammachaArtist's Statement: Recently I have decided to once again work with digital "painting" while continuing to use my line work. I really feel that I have come a long way with digital art (and art in general) in the past year. I have been focusing more on anatomy and light sources. Of course any suggestions are helpful but my main focus at the moment are those two things.
Pic #2 Celeste by Antumbra
Artist Statement: Tried a new shading technique with ambient occlusion while mixing colors in the lights and shadows. Not sure I like where it is at right now, but I definitely want to keep improving!
Any critique you are looking for in particular? Definitely the shading and the coloring.
Pic #3: Walk with me by FF-Boy
Artist Statement: "This is my best work I have done so far. This time, I wanted to practice background and painting technique.
For the critique, I would love to hear anything that you think they need to be improved, such as anatomy, composition, perspective, color scheme, painting techniques, etc. Thank you in advance! ^^"
