New account, yay.
That being said, I'm writing this journal to remind myself about the reasons that made me start again here. So yeah.
I've been incredibly un-productive art-wise the last 3 years, and I want it to stoppp. You know, next year I'm going to be an university student. A industrial design student, more exactly. I think, even though my design-oriented school has helped me quite a lot about that, that it's time for me to start developing my creativity. I mean, start developing it.. consciously. And I think this is a good place to start.
I now notice that I've been focusing too much in some aspects of my drawings and neglecting others. First, I want to be more constant about drawing. I know I won't draw everyday, because that's not how my brain works, but you know.. I don't want to let months pass by without drawing anything.
Second, I'm going to stop making my hyperrealism portraits. Even though I love doing them, and I really put feelings into them, I will only make them if someone pays me for it in my private commission-thingie on Facebook. Why? Because I want to find my personal style. I want to create from zero. So, this account will be full of sketches, 'cause I think that's the best way of defining my style. Maybe I'll submit some portraits later, the ones that I really like and that are special to me.
The last thing that i want to do is a change of medium. It's kind of surprising for me, as I've always been like, the crazy pencil lady, but I've come to the conclusion that colour pencils no longer fulfil my needs. So yeah, this year I'm experimenting with watercolours. I think that they can resemble more accurately the images in my head now than pencils. They are very delicate and can be easily desaturated, plus, I feel that even though I know you have to be very cautious and that it's harder to hide any mistakes, I get to be messier and it'll still look good.. If done right, obviously lol.
That's it. I think deviantart is a very nice place to inspire myself, as seeing works and progress of others makes me want to work and progress too. Also, I'm looking forward to constructive criticism. If someone is reading this, please don't be afraid to critique if you think it'll help, it'll make me very happy lol.
