Haha, wow. Quite a collection you've got here. I really liked the earlier drawings that you did. They have a truly distinct feel to them. Almost looked like from a dream.

I'm a fan of the cat photos, as well. Did not expect to see that bright pink tongue in there! Haha.

Thanks.
They are back from when I was an art student (pre-university). I'm lucky to have developed a style so early on in life. By early I mean the 10th grade.
Expressionism. It has it's perks, and most certainly it's pitfalls.
Craftsmanship isn't my strong point, but conveyance seems to be.
As an artist, I deal mostly with the line that exists between conscious and subconscious, trying my best to capture the literal/obvious, the underlying/emotive, all while conveying some sort of message. That line is my abyss of inspiration, a mere line to all but the flecks that comprise it.

Here I go, getting artsy. Imma shut up now.

Feel free to analyze and critique.

Trying to get back into art.

All of these are really amazing! I'm still in high school, and have my electives focused on drawing and photography so these are really impressive!

Thanks Broken Picture.

I wish you the best of luck and passion on your drawing/photography endeavors. Please do link me to your art, if you have it on here.
Are you a more technical draw-er, or a more expressive one?

These are great(: Especially the ones you drew.

This site needs a "Like" button so I can abuse it on your work. :p
Some say the world will end in Fire,
Some say in Ice,
From what I've tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor Fire,
But if I had to Perish twice,
I think I know enough of Hate,
To say for Destruction Ice is also Great,
And would Suffice.

Inspiration hit.
Incoming.

I have begun a series of 6.
They can be found here
on my combination pizza hut art and taco bell writing blog.

Let me know what you think.
Here are the first 3 in the set.
The second three have yet to be...completed.

Image
IDK why this one is so big >_>

Image

Image

How I do/did 'dis
In a manic fit of creativity, I drew out with a average office gel ink
pen on average wal mart grade notebook paper 6 cartoons sitting
in bottles.
They are caricatures of myself.
I then photographed them using my iPhone, brought them into GIMP,
and edited the crap out of them.

The process is crude, but I like to think the result is...well...

After this set is complete, I may be revisiting faerie tale characters in this style.
The first ones I will hit will most likely be Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.
Afterwards, Snow White and The Little Mermaid are in the lineup, potentially even
Rapunzel and Cinderella

What do you think of this style?
Do you like it?
Why?
What kind of stuff would you be interested to see in this style?

Feedback wanted


Oh! And one more thing. Here are some extremely craptastic doodles on my friends iPad.

Image
The little mermaid. If you look close, the smoke cloud says "love" and has the outlines of two people kissing.
If you look really really close XD
The smoke is supposed to be her voice

Image
I'm not entirely sure about this one. It's a doodle. Alice losing her innocence.
