Pot! :D

Pots, actually.
Ceramic. Not leaf.
Not illegal. :)

I actually really like this one. :D It took forever, though, so much detail. Worth it. :)

Hope you like it too, as always. :)

So this is the second time I've tried coloring the paper black and then erasing the picture. I really like it! owo; Heh. Hope you do too :)

'Tis a tree.

'Tis a tree. 'Tis a tree in my backyard. Wonderful, no?

Actually, I'm getting sick of it. So no, the actual tree isn't wonderful. It's on the border of annoying, really, drawing that tree.

I swear, I must be some kind of tree-drawing master by now. Eek, what a lame title. x]

So that's it for today, peeps. Sorry about the lack of TLDR-worthy text, my inner ramblings are occupied being poured into a journal of sorts.
Don't ask. ;)

Hope you liike it! :D

wheee.

This may look like some forest in the wilderness...

Ah but it's not.
It's the pond by my house.

It is a nice pond, though. Lush. Green. I think it's been frozen over a few times this year. ANYWAYS, I did this today. (See? I'm not being lazy about posting it!) It was about the one time I got off my computer. I actually went outside. (Write this down, somebody!) Anyways, it took about an hour, and in the process of making it my right hand went numb, I knocked my pastels off the chair, I freaked out three birds, and I think my toenail turned purple.

Creating art is just so peaceful, you know?

Pastels on pastel paper, ~1 hour.
Hope you like it. Took long enough xD

Bliss.

The beach.

Exactly where I've wanted to be these past weeks.

Just seems so much easier than the daily grind of school & stress.

Know what I mean?

pastels and charcoal on pastel paper, 9"x9".
About 2 hours.

Hope you like it. :)

shiny building, eh? :D

Actually physically it's probably quite dull. Well designed, but non-reflective. (Sniff.) heh :) Well, this is my latest picture, this one took me about a week, but I probably could have gotten it done sooner. I'm lazy as heck. ;P

Oh and this is the Chapel of St. Ignatius up at Seattle U. I want to live there so badly. D:

Pastel and some charcoal on construction paper.
Hope you like it :)

Brie :)

This is based off of a picture taken a while back, 1990's-ish. It's Brie, my family's cat at the time. Beautiful kitty. :) (ALL my family's cats are adorable, duh!) At first I thought this was going to turn out really bad, based on the half completed version of it, but I surprised myself and now I love it. :)

Greece! :)

My family and I were looking through some old photos on the web, and turns out my mom and dad went to Greece sometime ago. (Before kids. Obviously.) And they took this really pretty picture of these three windmills, too! :) So I was like HEY! I should draw/paint that! And I did, and this is the result. Voila~! :)

I also happened to draw/paint this right after I was looking through a book of World Art, a book that happened to have a lot of Impressionist (Van Gogh, Monet) paintings that I really liked. As you *might* or might not have noticed, I used that technique that they have (had?) and made the painting/drawing with a bunch of tiny little strokes. :) Yep. I like it, it has that kind of airy, light feel to it that Impressionist paintings had.

SO I hope you like it. :) It's one of my favorites that I've done so far.

Yosemiteee. :)

Ah, yes, the week away from civilization that all eighth graders are forced to endure. Yosemite. :) Is a week from civilization a good or bad thing? Tell me. :D heh

SO. For once, I decided that instead of being a borderline semicriminal that I would use a picture that wasn't copyrighted by anyone and that somebody I know took. Heh. :) (As in my mom.) So yeah, that's about it... tell me what you think :)

Salt water tastes bad. :)

It's..... Diamond Head! yepyep.:) That's a beach in Hawaii. (I think it's famous, but I don't know much about beaches.) Sure is pretty. :D

SO I was feeling nice. And my mom happened to grow up in Hawaii, and I *think* she went to Diamond Head a lot, so I made her this picture. :) I think it's really pretty, and I ALSO think that I'm much better at landscapes than I am at that flower down in the previous post. :)

(For those who don't understand thumbnails: click on the small picture to get a bigger, better picture. -u-;)

So once again, I got the picture from Wikipedia. :/ Probably not the best idea.... But don't worry, law! I'm going to start using my OWN pictures soon! Yep! So.... stay around and such. :)

Hmm-mm. :o

Another one of my pastel paintings x] These are so fun! Anyways, I don't know if I like this one as much as I should. It just doesn't seem as realistic as I should, ya know? I dunno. xD I shouldn't criticize my own work, just be happy for the bit of talent I DO have, I guess. meh. :]

Anyways, I've been on Pandora, listening to my channel of Death Cab For Cutie-esque stuff. And mannn, there are some really good artists out there. Joshua Radin, Postal Service,.... and a buncha others that I didn't catch the name of. o_o; Anyways, if you by any slim chance like meaningful soft music checkitout. [/advertising]

:) Anyways, tell me what you think of the flowerr. Leave some comments for once! :D

yummy!:]

So, here's the second pastel 'painting'. This one took SIGNIFICANTLY less time (like 1/7th the time) than the other one, because on the other I procrastinated a lot on the tomatoes. (Never doing something that repetitive again.) Plus on this one, I used a lot less of that whole 'opposite color shadows' thing, so I THINK it also looks a bit cleaner as a whole. I may be wrong. :)

Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, I didn't get this out of my head, I drew from a picture, like most sane people. ;) The picture I drew off of came from Wikipedia, and that picture is NOT MINE and copyright legal issues are not intended. Don't need any of that. o3o

ANYWAYS, I'm really not sure if the -real- picture, the physicalonpaper one, is fixative'd enough. o___o; It seems a bit smudgy to me. Hope that isn't an issue.

Sooo. TTYL, internet. ;D That's probably it for today.

some veggies ain't for eating.


Because I think if ya ate these, you might get electrocuted and need a few stitches. Just saying. ;) hehe.

Anyways, in art class, (eep!,) we just ended a pastel unit, and I discovered that HEY! I'm actually pretty good at pastels. I drew some sushi and this funny surfer guy. (I left his face out, just because he looked a lot like a scary-ish teacher from our school. heh. No offense to scary teacher.) I'll upload those when I get them back, about two months from now. -___-; (They're being displayed in the school district's office. Whoopee.) In the meantime, I decided to go out and get my own pastels so I could keep at it, and I drew this. What can I say, pastels are fun :)

Got one more for ya today, so stay around. ;)

(Pastel on paper. Took a week 'cause I'm lazy.)

Abstract is so funnn :D


So I've got another piece to show you. This one was done around the 13th. (As of today, that was two days ago. XDD) This one is a lot simpler, as you probably can see. I also like the palette of colors I used a lot more, and I've decided that black has a way of making a piece a bit depressing. No more black. ;] (even though black matches eveeerrrything. -__-)

Hope you like it as much as I do. :]

Screamo's good for something besides music. ;D

This was done in early August, like the 4th or 5th. Around that tiem.

So I was listening to some screamo a while back. XDD It's not that bad, really, the screaming is just hard to get used to. o3o; For me, at least. IDK about youu. ;D Anyways, I felt like drawing based on the musical patterns of screamo: the rough, loud sections, the sweet sections, (yes, they do exist!) the sections that are just in your face, the electronica bits, all of that combined into a piece of abstract.

I really like the way it turned out, but I think I might have gone a bit too far with it. (Lol.) Like, more might not always be better. It's just a bit....too busy, you know? Too much to comprehend. (I NEEED RESTRAINT!) Lol XDD Hope you liek.

Tried some photography. :D


Mister Gloomybear was just begging to be the model for this one. ;] And for those of you who don't know who Gloomybear is, he's awesome. Look it up.

Tried to make it portray a message like all the great Deviantart photographers can. didn't work. ;] But it isn't that bad, is it? nah. :]

Comment? Questions? Concerns? POST THEM HERE >:D heheh. :)

a bit of abstract, anybody?


So, first off. I have a lot of spare time. :] So naturally, I get bored, and when I need something to do, I draw. And I'm getting bored of just drawing people, so I decided to do some abstract.

I'm not really sure what inspired me to make this, (gosh I use that word a lot,) but I made it after skimming through a book of famous art, so I'm sure that helped. ;]

Took about 2 hours. Colored pencil & oil pastels. (those things smudge like hell xD not sure if that's good or bad.)

Oh, and for those of you who don't understand the idea of thumbnails: click on the little picture to get a bigger and better picture. :D

(And Samarth, this is what I was drawing when I was talking to you. The clock means you're boring. :D loljkjkjkjkjk you're pretty funny. xD)

blue hair is sexy! ;D jkjk


So right after I drew this one, my mom told me it looked like Adam Lambert (aside from the hair, obviously.). Does it? I'm not sure. :D I guess there is the eyeliner, and the generally emoish haircut (bangs, spikes in back), but really I don't see much resemblance. Maybe you do. ;]

Comments? :D
