More Artwork!!

I've been drawing and everything!

Hey, check this out! 4 years ago, I joined DeviantArt to ask an artist if I could use one of their pictures to go with my music and since I started drawing again, I have pictures there now too!

My most recent December 2017 drawing was done over the holidays on day 22 of randomly (re?)developing left handedness. I think I have a surprising amount of aptitude and potential in my left and I've been tangibly exploring that, like with writing, throwing things around - oh and artistically also, because it's fun!

Lol. You can see all three of my pictures there! As always, I'd like to hear what you think and thank you!

Hey, looks like you have good eye-to-hand coordination – with both hands! Very good line work.

Yes, do more in 2018.

Llama badges?

@becwil Thank you! Yes, if someone sent me a badge that represents a llama for my efforts, that would be great. Actually it was just something I noticed people sharing around on that site as an outsider looking in. smiley

I added another photo of the same drawing done twice - one with each hand. My writing is identical but my pictures look different. This was my first time inking with my left hand; I've been drawing with my right for years but only several hours as a lefty unless I scribbled as a toddler.

About the only differences that I see, besides the obvious fewer lines on the left, is some slight proportion differences in a few places, and a bit of overall size increase on the drawing on the left. Your line style is very similar in both hands.

Ah, llama badges on diviantart. I looked around some to see if I could give you one, without being a member, and didn't see a way. So, consider this your llama badge: smiley

@becwil Thanks for the analysis! My biggest surprise in this month of practicing left handedness are the similarities between it and my right. I wasn't expecting anything to be as transferrable or even quickly obtainable.

On a drawing note, my art teacher in school hated that I liked to make small but detailed images as we'd be assigned these huge canvases. I'd be criticized for making a small picture then filling the rest with bricks or something. One time, I decided to ditch the canvas and do my best painting on the side of a speaker box at home. It didn't meet the criteria not being on the media provided but she finally concluded that she couldn't degrade it for it showed what I could really do if using and directing my interest to a small space without any waste. Maybe that's why I like making music on iPods.

But now I actually want to draw on a huge paper with my left. It's weird.

And YES, the Badge of Composing does great as a llama! My work is now complete!, no wait, I have to draw another picture for someone and upload some music soon too!

Thank you smiley

Ah, yes, I remember those assignments in art classes – the ones that are designed to expand our experience and challenge our emotions and intellect. smiley I, too, have a similar story of one particular assignment, in which I refused to fully comply. My grade didn't turn out as well as yours. smiley

Hey, that's cool that your left hand wants to go BIG!!! Go for it!

@becwil That's neat that you have a similar story. Yeah, I started drawing on a paper 26"x20" which would normally send me running, however I think all the things you mention in the start of your above comment have applied to this as well haha!

Larger Drawing WIP

My mom had the good idea of making a drawing for my sister and since she liked Sailor Moon, I decided to work on this for her since she has a milestone birthday coming up!

I'll ink the image with my right and once completed in the timeframe I have, it should look more like this:

Sailor Scout Test Drawing

Thanks!

Looking good!

I began painting on fairly small canvases. Now I like to use large canvas. smiley I've also done several many wall murals for folks. One was even the whole living room.

Happy Birthday to your sister!

Are you using references? I just used one for the album art of my latest song...though not nearly as intricate as yours. I find that when I draw I'm the opposite of you; making heads really huge and focused on before being like oh crap there's supposed to be the rest of it...

@ZipZipper Your recent songs artwork looks cool and I like your drawing. I did use references for all the ones I've posted there as of now but am planning to do an OC sometime. I'm training my left hand so I'll want to do more and I still want to practice on Sailor Moon characters even though I'm finished with my last drawing goal. When I draw or write with my left, I seem to go a bit above were I'd like on the paper but I read that shows optimism smiley
