Piece for a class tomorrow about the transition from live to recorded music. Wanted to show an automated musician in a place they don’t belong to symbolize music as replayable and perhaps in places it hadn’t been. It’s late and I’m tired
Repeating patterns for a class, oh man.
Piece I doodled this morning in class and colored in between classes since I didn’t really have time to get invested into work that needs to be done. Sometimes I just gotta draw stuff like this anyway to let off steam, it helps me relax a whole lot!
I colored one of those sketches from earlier while waiting on a homework thing to dry. Colors might be off since I can only work on my Cintiq screen at the moment and the contrast is a bit off, cat is on my lap and I can’t bring myself to move him.
Some recent sketches from during classes. As I mentioned in my previous update I’ve been pretty busy this month so I haven’t really had the time to devote to personal stuff but I figured I’d post a few sketches of things that may or may not get colored soon!
dreahatch asked: I saw your post on reddit and had to come follow you on Tumblr. I also wanted to tell you your eye for color is exquisite.
Oh jeez why thank you. I’m really happy whenever I hear stuff like that about colors especially.
For a long time I was always told my colors sucked and that I shouldn’t do them so even now I have a bit of a complex where I am really unsure of myself when coloring. It just makes me feel like I’m improving whenever I hear things like that. This is just one of those cases though where even if you are told that you can’t do something - you just work at it until you can overcome the boundaries!
Updates & Events!
Hi there so I got an ask awhile back that said to put it out there when I’d be showing stuff around and I’ve got a bunch of events and shows planned for the coming months. If you’re interested in seeing my work in person or getting prints firsthand definitely click the read more!
Little piece for a class. Had to illustrate the lingering sense of someone being there so I just drew a deteriorating person since it is for an English class and the idea doesn’t matter so much haha! I also am still trying to figure out working fully digitally and I just don’t know if it works or ever will for me, I feel so iffy about it.
Anonymous asked: I really like how you outline things in a lighter color when you paint... or at least that's what it looks like? It makes things seem to really pop and it just gives your work a certain feel to it. Do you think the same idea would work used in traditional painting? And what I mean by outlines are just the subtle details that you add into clothing or around objects that are usually in a slightly lighter color.
Oh wow thank you so much. That’s one of the things I’ve been trying to not do lately since I felt like people didn’t like it. That makes me really happy to hear that it is actually okay for me to work like that sometimes!
Also I think it absolutely would transfer to traditional. In my traditional paintings I would love to use something like that but I’m always too impatient to wait until the paint dries to go over it! But I might just have to try it one of these days.
