Hi! Angel and I thought this would be a place where we could share our artwork ideas that we are working on, as well as our trials and tribulations. I don't know about you, but some projects I have in my head don't always work on the canvas. Sometimes they do! Maybe we can share some art instruction books as well as computer art ideas. Or just talk about our artwork that we are working on. Ooh, and share about about sales and commissions too! What do you all think?

I work mainly in colored pencil and anyone who might be interested in the medium, I have many books that range from portraiture to wildlife to landscape.

I will list them in another post.

Hope to see visual artists in here! Thank you Angel! smile.gif

I am working on a portait right now. I honestly do not know how this project is going to turn out. I am doing my best but it seems that sometimes the art project takes control over me as to what I should do as another artist expressed. Do you feel that way?

I had just posted in the Writer's Block Thread on me being stuck on this fly I am trying to tie.

I have my Fly Tying Bench right beside my Computer and I continuely look at this semi-tied fly sitting there. Trying to figure out what I am doing wrong with it. sad.gif

Once I get the tail the way I want it and I put the body on, I anchor it down and move on to the next step which is usually the hackle. That part usually is not that big of a deal. But when it comes to putting on the wings, that is what either makes or breaks the entire design.

I know I have been working on this fly now for 4 days and I still do not have it. But I will keep on trying.

Well I finally decided to leave the pic I am working on alone comepletely. I moved it so I can't even see it now. I will start something else and when the time is right I will get it out and finish it, until then it can sit in it's file in the darkness.

I do that a lot too, Angel! When I get stuck on something then I have to just put it away and work on something else. I find that when I have finished another piece and go back to the other one that was giving me trouble, I get all refreshed ideas and can actually see where I went wrong. That is why I like to work on more than one piece at a tiime. smile.gif

I have had a little inspiration. I was watching the DVD extras on Finding Nemo, and I saw these wonderful pastels one of the artists did as a concept for the film. They were gorgeous, and got me inspiried to get back into pastels. Now if I could only find some subject matter.

Re: my art:
  • 2 oil paintings that need to be signed, varnished, framed, and entries of same sent to juried competitions.
  • A script that needs to be outlined.
  • An outlined script that needs to be drafted.
Sitting and posting on this board is much easier -- then I can whine about how I have no time to do my art... angel_not.gif

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

I didn't know you did painting too, Silverdragon! thumbs_up.gif

I used to do the art shows and festivals and even had some stuff in gallery exhibitions,but the marketing part of it just became so exhausting and no win situation for me. After 8 years of the trying to become successful in my art career and getting no where, I finally gave up the fight. Now I just paint for myself and my enjoyment has returned. I am working back with colored pencils again and I love my pencils! smile.gif

Yeah, painting too... depressing, ain't it? smile.gif But teaching the Armenian Invasion keeps the bills paid while I do what I enjoy on the side... by now I'm just looking for a line on the arty resume... taking classes, and hoping I can get a start into independent filmmaking/animation. I consider my scripts visual art BTW -- since I figure I have no chance of selling them; they're intended to be things I produce independently, if and when. You can look at some of my older stuff at http://vortexstudio.homestead.com, if you're interested.

Very nice work Silverdragon. thumbs_up.gif Understand about paying the bills. I always did medical transcription for that part and I did make-up artistry for a little while too. Now really loved that. It was like working on another canvas!

I worked part-time for the director of a local arts center/gallery (Zada, Celticrose - remember her?) That was a lot of fun, and I was around art & artists all the time. Met some great people and learned a lot about the behind-the-scenes activity of organizing exhibits and such...

From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

Have you though of doing pastels of the people here? what you think they look like by the things the say? and then compair it to what pic they have posted.
I could never master pastels, I need a more definative line. I loved color pencils but never got the shading I wanted so I used charcole and paints.
