Getting back into arts again

For the last few months, I was so caught up with many responsibilities that I had forgotten to allot some time for arts. Well, crochet can be considered part of arts and crafts, and writing is also a form of art but what I am specifically referring here is painting and drawing.

For those who could remember, I was active before in posting my artworks throughout the week. Some of the artworks I posted are full of complex details, almost mimicking realism. And then my favorite are the vector arts which are easy for me to do yet looked so cute.

Yesterday, I felt my fingers itch. It is a feeling I am familiar with but I had not felt for a long time. It was the itch to create something.

I let the muse possess me

When the muse sings a song I had not heard for months, my whole being just agreed to be possessed by my creative muse. And with it, my initial preparation is complete.

Now that I am prepped to be creative again, I need to prepare my materials.

Drawing tablet or phone?

This is the first decision I had to make. Using my drawing tabet would ensure a good quality artwork. Moreover, it will give me an easier time to do art.

The downside to this is that it takes a bit of time to set up. And I am so lazy to get my laptop out just so I could use the tablet.

Phone is a bit tricky to use for doing artworks. The main problem is the small screen. But it is baalnced out by the portability of the phone.

In the end I decided to use my phone and fingers as my main instruments for drawing. I also decided to use IbisPaint X as my canvas.

Avril Lavigne's Love Sux

I wanted to recreate the album cover since it came out but I was in an art block era then so I was not able to do that. But it does not matter now since I managed to create this messy artwork.

I think my messy line art in this piece shows how much time passed since I last painted anything. It also shows how ugly my concentration is as I work on this artwork but that is not super important.

Anyway, this piece is a simple one to make so I believe it took me about 30 minutes to finish this.

I might go back again to this artwork and try to make a cleaner line art but honestly, I am already quite happy with the outcome.

Lonely beach

The next one shows how much my art skills faded in the months I did not aint anything.

As you can see here in my practice of painting seascapes, I need to work on the depth and point of view of my drawings again.

But I still feel prpud of this artwork because I think it captures the essence of the beach we visited at Calatagan.

This artwork took me about 45 minutes to make just because I fotrgot how to create cute skies until I finally devided to give up (for now).

Jisoo in your area

This one is my favorite out of all the artworks I made so far this month.

I really enjoyed drawing Jisoo again and she looks so magnificent.

This artwork took me about an hour to make. Mostly because I wanted to capture how beautiful her dress was.

Closing words

As I was writing this article, I realized that I could connect my drawing table to a phone so I might do that next time.

I also remembered that I can use some layer options to make my drawings look better. So I will do that next time (if I remember it).
