First blog post

This is my first blog post on here and I have always wanted to have a nice blog but just never stayed committed. I actually wanted to start this a month ago, at the beginning of the year so that I could post for a whole year…I still don’t know if I am going to stay consistent but I’ll definitely try. The main reason I want to do this is to get over my fear of not being perfect and ruining things. I want to reach some goals this year as well…hopefully I won’t disappoint myself this year.

I plan on mostly posting a some of my art work on here and pretty words…

Things to post

So after doing the 30 day challenge and having content to post everyday and keep me accountable, I think I need to start something similar so I can start putting up some work every now and then.

I had ideas:

  1. To write on a little piece of paper everything that I want to draw so that I don’t have to think of a new concept everyday. So I’ll put all those little pieces of paper and put them in a jar and pull one out every morning and draw.
  2. I am working on a little project and I plan to have it complete in about 2 months but I’ll put the work up here and show my process (I’ll show pictures and things that inspire me through this time and how I got to the last piece) for this little project.
  3. The other idea I had was to look at pieces done by other artists and try to imitate it so that I can get better over time.

I just don’t want to get to a mental block so I plan things out before hand. So I’ll see what I can do about posting things on here. I might post once or twice during the week and have a few throwback sketches here and there but I’ll definitely try to do it on weekends.

 

Here’s a throwback to 5 years ago, when I had an unhealthy obsession with shoes…

Day 30!

Finally! I’m done with this challenge. It wasn’t the worst thing ever, but I just dreaded coming up with a concept every once in a while.

I found it quite fun to just sit and let all the creativity flow and find a different way to put the circles in each sketch. My only problem would be that I needed everything to be perfect even though I knew it could never be perfect because I would see a new flaw just when I thought I was finished. It’s something I’m constantly trying to beat but it’s better than what it was before I started this challenge.

It is something I really encourage everyone to try out and make a little sketch every morning. I would really love it if someone out there who loves drawing to try this challenge and share their work online even when they don’t feel as if it is something that is perfect.

Day 29

I really like the way this one turned out! Tomorrow’s the last day of this challenge! I’m kind of glad this is almost over…

For this quotation, I didn’t know that it was from the one I had done on day 26 from Dr. Who, so here is the full thing:

“When you love the doctor, It’s like loving the stars themselves. You don’t expect a sunset to admire you back.”

Day 28

I love how dramatic it looks and I tried a different colour this time.

Day 27

This was from day 27. I don’t know what I was trying to do with the thing over her head…it looks quite weird but I like the shading on her face.

 

Day 26

These are sketches from day 26 and the quotation is one from Dr. Who. I don’t even watch Dr. Who, I found the quotation somewhere and thought it sounded beautiful…

Is it a good series?

 

Day 25

I did a really quick sketch today and I tried to go for a creepy smile for the middle part but I don’t know what that is…

Day 24

I tried this fantasy theme again and I am so in love with the flower patterns…

Day 23

I drew this today. I love the way the red pops. I still don’t really know how to draw faces from the side. Oh well I tried.

Day 22

I drew this piece today with funny hair…I wanted a fantasy themed piece, it was really fun to draw. I don’t know what this is but I hope you like it.
