The Artistic Journal: Yet another medley

It really is a medley: college work, requested artwork and some personal artwork. All of it is being hand drawn by me of course and I’m slowly getting feelings of improvement in my drawing technique that obviously comes with practice. I had been stuck last week on what kind of art I should work on and then when this week started, I had some fresh ideas to work with. A new section in my college course means I have content to draw from. The menacing face WIP is another League of Legends character called “Volcanic Wukong,” making as a request for a friend, which is a hobbyist art creation for myself. The most personal one to me in this series of pictures, is the tattoo design of the RIP Urn that I made for my dad in relation to my grandmother. Ultimately when I have a really strong idea to work with, I am deeply inspired to commit effort to working on it and the tattoo design was one such idea because it’s deeply personal to my family. There’s no fear to keep personal feelings from you guys anyway… I was sad when she passed away, but I had anchors that kept me strong and I live on with the memories I have of her and all my family and friends. They’re the inspiration behind me doing what I do: so I can be the best I can and share my experiences and my personality with the world.

Haiku Monday: Sleep and Dreamstate

The eyes shut slowly,

Preparing the subconscious,

Embracing the dark.

 

Muscles become calm,

Weariness anchors them all,

Relief at the peace.

 
The shadows close in,

Imagining the colours,

My dream world beckons.

 

In my second home,

The one for my thoughts,

I am the master.

IW (Illustration Wednesday): Beginning

A new post to be made every wednesday with regard to Illustration work and me practicing my illustration skills. This will happen every wednesday and will contain either a traditional or digital drawing, or a photograph.

So since it’s the start of this new series of blog posts, I have made two: they illustrate my first few days in college and my thoughts.

The faceless person is the representation of a potential friend I could make. Given that there are around 50 people on my particular course, all of which seem friendly and cool, I shouldn’t have a problem getting to know a few. Although with me being a shy and timid person, that shall take some time.

Labelling Myself – Part 1

This is an art assignment for my Art Foundation course that was given to me to complete over the summer. I was to complete this in the summer and have it ready for when I go back to college in September.
So, I was given a brown luggage tag and told to use it in a creative way to portray myself and my personality. The final piece has to be creative and/or functional and we could do what we like to it. For me, I have decided to turn it into a book, using the tag as the backing binder and finding 2 pieces of cardboard to use as the backs. It’ll contain a plethora of illustrations about me and the things around me :).

This is obviously the first part, being the startup and crafting. Part 2 will include designs and the rest of the crafting, as well as the final piece.
So I took some photos to show you:
