Inktober – Day 18

Inktober Day 18, Filthy.

Ok, I had a vision of what I wanted this sketch to be…but, that was in the beginning.  Somewhere along the journey the train went of the tracks.  I tried a bit of experimentation and, well, it just didn’t turn out the way I envisioned it in my mind.  Oh well,  here it is anyway.





Inktober – Day 15

Inktober Day 15, Mysterious.  Today’s sketch is loosely based on a photograph I took of my daughter.

Inktober-2017-Day-15-MysteryBelow is the original photograph.  This photo was created as an entry for a levitation themed challenge.  For the the sketch I inverted the composition so it appeared that she was falling.



Recommended Read – What is a “Real” Artist?

I read an article at Muddy Colors this morning that I instantly wanted to share.  The article is written around what defines a “real” artist.  This a subject that I have pondered many times and I imagine that other creative people have as well.

“Am I an artist?”  Is a question I have asked myself many times and I still don’t know how I would react if I was asked this question by a stranger.  I sketch…does that make me an artist? I enjoy photography…does that make me an artist?  I am a fairly competent woodworker…does that make me an artist?  You get the idea.  Everyone has a different opinion on what skill level or activities makes someone a “Real” Artist.

Anyway, I think this article does an excellent job of addressing the question and I highly recommend reading it.  Especially, if you have ever wondered the same of yourself.
