No, I haven’t quite wondered into street art yet – but digital art is something that I’ve been trying my hand at recently.
Next, I decided to redo AlleyCat, a character first created in Highschool. Both the highschool and Freshman versions where used to the final digital image.
It took a whole month! I just kept having to redo things…her skin, cloths, hair. The eyes alone took 8 hours to complete. Finishing everything up was the best feeling. The improvement was so significant!
Right after finishing up AllyCat, I ordered a tablet. As soon as it arrived, the new project took off.
The tablet made everything so much easier and faster. Two days and everything was all done. Throughout this one, I also learned how to integrate images into the art. It was a lot easier to use pictures of starfish than to draw them out to the same extent of detail.
I didn’t trace this next one. It just came out. Half way through – I went to the doctor to get an X-ray. They saw a medical procedure, but I saw an artistic opportunity.
This is the most recent project I’ve worked on. It was referenced from a drawing class assignment done between 3:00am and 4:30am on 2-17-2013. Really? 3am? When the hell did I ever sleep! The story behind this image is actually kind of depressing. We were supposed to draw an emotion. I was definitely sitting in front of a friend’s mirror at that ungodly hour crying for hours.
Anyway, there is still a lot to work on. The eyes came out horribly – but at least the skin looks more realistic!
