While cleaning out scrap metal from our back forty I discovered several old steel milk containers. They are very rusty, dented, but still in relatively decent shape. I saved these with the intention of painting them white for landscaping projects, but now I want to paint murals on them. The first one I decided to paint with a farm scene on it.
Amazon had a sale on an acrylic art supply kit, it was such a good price I just couldn’t resist. Everything is so crisp and new I’m hesitant to mess it up. I’m also waiting for the right inspiration, I hate to waste a perfectly good canvas on a subject that doesn’t feel right. I am excited and reluctant at the same time; do other new artists feel this way?
I enjoy creating manga faces primarily because of their ultimate simplicity, and the way they appear when finished. Just playing around with my homemade charcoal and an 18″ x 24″ drawing pad I made a really big manga face. It was fun, and definitely something different. My biggest fear is falling into a routine with my art and creating the same things over and over, I want every piece to be a new experience. (see the pen in the photo for size reference)
Interesting article about 10 different DC superheroes and a bit of their background. Although I may not agree with the list, I found out some things about these superheroes that I did not know.
Makes me want to get to my drawing table and develop my own superhero/villain or maybe a side-kick or two.
