I have a friend who made the most beautiful comment on 2016 and the new year. I won't copy it word-for-word because it was a very personal comment loaded with personal things that were not written for me to repeat to the world. To paraphrase, 2016 was an interesting year filled with new experiences. Her… Continue reading Future Achievements of 2017
With my fourth year of already begun, I was excitedly nervous. Excited for graduation in a few months time, as well as for my defence of my undergraduate thesis, among other things. Nervous for all of the crazy electives I was taking - guys, don't take 4th year chemistry classes as "fun electives," and DON'T… Continue reading Photography A-1
This is a little painting I did from a really crap feeling. It's a pretty strange feeling to articulate into words, so I'm not too sure I can explain my original "meaning" of this. Shortly, it has to do with thoughts and speech; but I'll let you pull your own concept together for it, I'm curious as to… Continue reading Thoughts & Speech Art
On my last weekend at camp for the summer, I decided to go fishing with my mom and Gramma. Or rather, I went boating, while they fished (didn't get my licence this year). In any case, I had a few great hours on the lake chilling with my two favourite women. While I stupidly forgot… Continue reading Fishing Life Drawing
Hello, and happy... FIRST OF SEPTEMBER? Whoa, time just flew, flew away this summer. I did manage to create quite a lot of art over the past few months (which can be found on my Instagram). Although my last post is from April, I promise I have been making art! Without another second of waiting, here's some art from… Continue reading Camp Style Art
Since it feels a lot like this right now in my town, I figured it would be a nice time to post this old painting from last month. ☺ I used my Reeve's and Artist Loft watercolours with a mix of synthetic and natural brushes (the natural ones were originally my Grandma's). I detailed… Continue reading Winter Cabin Watercolour Painting
Below is a character concept for a story I'd started thinking about last summer. Her name is Elsiveth (or something along those lines) and she's gone through a lot of change over the different stories I'd started writing. First she was an assassin, then she was a less assassin-y rogue, then she was an unknown… Continue reading Elsiveth Character Concept
To begin: I am working on a sort of resolutions post that will be posted within the week, and Happy New Year! I hope everyone's holidays were spent to their liking and that some nice memories were made. To the title of this post, The Blacklist is the reason Thursday's are my favourite day. The… Continue reading The Blacklist ART
A rainy day followed by a warm night can produce a beautiful image. Nothing will ever capture the feeling of being there though: the humid heat, the water drops on the grass soaking my socks, the smell of petrichor, and the ever-changing wisps of steam coming off the road and out of the trees. It… Continue reading Photography | Foggy Evening
This weekend, when I wasn't watching the final episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood with my own brother, I was creating art. I'd purchased a mixed media art pad (6x8in, 15 pages) of Strathmore paper with the intent of making some nice finished pieces for my room to frame. I decided to test it out with the… Continue reading Original Art & Lily Collins
I've been considering completing some sort of anatomy challenge for a while now. I recently started "watching" Yuuza on deviantArt for her incredible artwork, and realized she has a 1000 Anatomy Sketches Challenge. Though 1000 is a lot of sketches, I'm excited for the final results! While I may not post the entire 1000… Continue reading 1000 Anatomy Sketches; Batch 1
Yesterday, I visited Michael's with a 5$ off coupon, and ended up purchasing a few extra things than I'd anticipated. Here are the items I've "tested" out already! Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils The reason I needed to make some art purchases was to replace the Eagle and Berol Scholar colours I'd shortened with some new Premier… Continue reading New Prismacolors – and artwork!
First ever portrait work with "pencil crayons," there are things I'm not happy with and things I will do better next time. Overall, happy with it! Materials: Staedtler Mars Lumograph Prismacolor Coloured Pencils Watercolour paper Reference by Queen-Kitty on dA
This is the new art that made its way into my sketchbook. 😀 Entertaining my little cousins over the past week!
A sketch and drawing I finished yesterday. It's a strange concept, but something I find I can relate to incredibly well. Constructive comments and interpretations are welcome!
