Hello. :) This is my first “real” artwork for the year, and so it seems largely unpracticed and messy. Haha. It’s just a “Happy Day! (No Occassion)” gift for a friend who likes Star Wars, Math and Music, so I suppose it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Finished over three hours (including the time spent researching on images associated with Star Wars; I wasn’t lazy enough to do a lightsaber, or energetic/inspired enough to do a detailed Yoda), while I was starving (I began in that half-full, not-hungry state, and I ended up not eating) and tired (right after my trip around Manila, see below). Anyways. Scanning it makes me realize a few things, like the fact that I should start making my backgrounds in paintings consistent. Tsk. I can actually see the patches of black made in different times and with different amounts of water. I should also start looking at the canvas thread lines before following it in making my lines; the lines in the canvas I used were slanted, so I ended up having slanted lines for the staff.
For the life of me I can’t remember what my first artwork year 2011 was. Does it matter? I don’t know. :) Someday I’ll find a scanner big enough to accommodate my bigger canvases.
On another note…
We’re starting our hands-on tutorial in basic photography tomorrow! I’m bringing a borrowed Nikon camera (since I don’t have one which will serve as well as that would). Hopefully I’ll do something nice enough to share with others; and I hope even more that I won’t do any damage to my sister’s precious DSLR.
Also, Happy Chinese New Year!
