Yo! So I haven't been on here in ages, probably a couple years, minus a few days of "favorite" spamming for a few hours here and there.
My goal is to start selling art, since I'm pretty good at realistic portrait drawings of people and some animals. Ideally I will figure out how to set that up soon! Let me know with any feedback on what you'd like prints of, whether pencil portraits, abstract synesthesia colorful paintings, charcoal figures, or something else! I shall post more of my newer work here soon.
Also! I have synesthesia, which means I have a 6th sense since some of my neural wiring is weird - basically I can "hear color" movements, and so I decided to start painting what these look like when I hear music. I first started painting in Jan 2014, learned photography skills (see my instagram page) from Pokemon Snap (haha) and now create calendars for family. I started drawing and practicing an OCD-like determination for beauty when I was a 10 yr old pokemon nerd, and continued in college with some art classes, and still do this every now and then for fun.
I actually only just remembered recently how much fun and rewarding drawing portraits can be - getting facial features down and character details is just second nature for me, although I continue to learn how to better make shadows or pencil angles behave to contour correctly. Doing my Markiplier FanArt portrait reminded me I can enjoy my artistry talents, and that maybe I could share them more with others, too!
Hope your day is faaantastic and awesome.
