My stamp – Step 8

This has been a long time coming, so I won’t keep you waiting any more. I have been busy as usual, but that also means I have worked alot on my art projects. This piece is nearly complete (80%) and I shall aim to get it finished within the next 4 weeks. So without further ado, here is the next step:

There isn’t so much left to comment on, since it’s all pretty straightforward from here. Just take in mind that when you finish off drawing and inking your artwork, if you want to colour it afterwards, or finish it off in black and white. For mine, I haven’t decided on either yet. I’m just proud of myself for FINALLY drawing some hands right… go me. More music-oriented stuff shall come in the next step, as well as video game ideas of course, being an avid gamer and everything :).

‘Till next time!

My Stamp – Step 5

It’s near enough come to a halt for the moment while I go out job hunting over the spring/summer. With my birthday aproaching fast, I have that to think about too, so there have only been a couple of updates to this piece of artwork. Take a look for yourself:

Lovely bubbly chocolate, extra urban design on the main text and general inking of some sections of the picture and it’s looking a little more in-depth. I don’t want to fill in any object with colour, or ink a lot of the piece because I may feel that my ideas change later and I want to make sure I have added every possible detail I want to each part before I finish it off with ink. It’s a good tip for all of you aswell: if you feel something’s not finished yet, just leave it in pencil and ink the stuff you think is done. I have no idea what I’m going to do next on this work as I’m more focused on getting a job right now to support my wants and needs… Although, the sorts of stores i’m applying at do have themes and I can add those themes to my artwork. For example, I’m applying at a sports store, so I may aswell as some sporty elements to my artwork and I do enjoy excercise. Well there we have it, enjoy and see you next time.

My Stamp – Step 4

A little sketching here, a little inking there and… Presto! This is my latest update on my current creative arts project in which I am drawing everything and anything to do with me and my life. A lot of it is impulsive and done on the spot because my style of art being “Impulsive Creative” means that I just do things and the ideas develop from there. Even though most of the drawing has been done on a “just do” basis, all of it has meaning, especially to me.

Extra details in the linework give some of the objects more depth to them and thus it becomes more alive and exciting. The smiley face on the eraser just reminds me of how I always draw smiley faces on mine in real life and in the corner of the page, we have an initial sketch of what is going to be me. In this depiction of me, I will be contemplating what to do, since most of the time I’m always pondering on what I should add to the piece next.

Sometimes the designs don’t come out exactly how you want to and that is only natural. But given time and proper care, we can develop those sudden changes to blend and mould in with the whole picture. Usually this may happen when you start to ink over your pencil lines, but do not fret and embrace that hidden creativity. I support this statement as alot of my current artwork takes changes as I draw over the pencil in ink and more often than not, it looks alot better with the slight tweaks and changes. Hope you enjoy and look forward to my next post. 🙂

My Stamp – Step 3

So far so good and quite some progress was made as I added extra details on existing objects and it definitely looks more awesome with each session.

More detail on the eraser shows that it’s been used so it’s more comfortable to look at and the bulging veins in the arms represent the often strenuous hard work that it takes to create art… Yet it flows through my blood naturally. It’s pleasing to know that having a night’s rest and coming back to the artwork provides a fresh and creative mind, which provided me with new ideas and extra details to add to the piece. I am happy with the work so far and the next step should prove to be quite “fruitful” indeed. Enjoy! 🙂
