My Lovely Art Thingies (Artist Statements)
First Shot and I Missed
The picture above is my artwork Progress Will Bring Tears. It was my first ever “Realistic” drawing and first every drawing with shading. It's a grey/grayscale art piece that is of my top favorite flower, Dragon Rose. I created it by using Prismacolor art pencils, the process was just simple sketching then shading in and adding details. The big idea of my art was just drawing a Dragon Rose at the start, later on, in the drawing I had an emotional breakdown. Instead of trying to calm down I used it in my art, you can see by how the background isn't very blended and the flower on the right isn't very cared for. The goal for this piece was just to try out a different style and see what would happen, this art piece helped me reach that. I actually don't care much for my art piece but I learned some things from it. I learned new things about shading, I learned how mess it is. Most importantly I learned new ways to make my drawings look better or more realistic.
To make sure I dont stay in a plateau of art skill development, I'll keep doing what I'm working on and maybe spice things up by adding challenges and obstacles. My favorite art making apprach is just winging it 75% of the time. If I stay in the lines and do just what I'm taught I will not learn anything or gain much from it. Experimenting is what I do and its how I do most of my hands on projects. The goals I set up was: Finish the, project, keep it exciting, don't slack, be happy with your art style. In all my projects I've completed all my goals but being happy with my work, I always feel like I'm missing something but I know its just because I haven't I haven't gotten good at the things I'm doing yet. My goals for the future would be the same as always and I'll hopefully accept my work.
