Tired of not being Artistic
 
Okay, so once upon a time I used to do tons of creative things. Drawing, photoshop, acting, singing, writing, and so on. What do I do now? Nada. I sit on horse forum all day long reading. Most the time I don't post everything. (I kind of got scared off by an awakening of my neglect for training and still showing) But I'm putting on my big girl panties and becoming active.....Anyhow I want to start drawing and what not again. I'm trying to pull up some artwork that I have done but I'm looking for a few volunteers for pictures. I get lazy if I'm doing it for me. Lol

Alright so I want to work out

Photo Manips :
Manipulation
Graphic Painting (no idea what to call it)
Click Here
Pencil Sketches (not finished...I suck at shading, so just working out outlining)
Sketch
Other?
Tat Design


I am just getting back into this. ^^ Those are some of my best at my peak. So don't expect anything as good as these.

Another thing, my graphics program is only GIMP so bare with me. I lost my Paintshop about two years ago to a computer crash and not having the disk.

Post away, make sure include what kind of medium you want. and how you want it.

If you want the graphic sketch I could do both, as I will hand draw and then scan to photoshop.

Is that a flea bitten paint? He/She looks beautiful.

I forgot how much I missed drawing, I got in a mood and kept going and going...so I finished all three basic sketches tonight. I love posting step by step, hope no one minds. So here are the three to start. -I made them darker so you can see the lines and not hurt your eyes.

^^ Domino, this was the perfect to start out with. It will be a full body shot, but I ran out of paper to finish the tail/hind leg. Lol So that will be done in PS. I removed tack in all of them so I can focus on one thing at a time. Though it is hard to tell how thick she is with the saddle on. She might be deep chested for this one. lol. I'll mess around with it in PS and see what looks good.

^^ Shutupjoe just saw the thread of your own designs. You're quite the artist. Makes me want to try a little harder haha. Anyhow, I love the pictures of your horses. I spent forever trying to figure out which one to work on. I went with the top one as it is a bit more challenging for me to do anything other than from the side. All that hair is going to be fun. Lol I'm going to fix up the cheek bone, just saw how off it was.

^^Pony Guru now this one is hard. Not only do I have tons of trouble with head on. The head down is challenging for proportions, Its great for me to work on. I got so bad with drawing from the side with head in a neutral or high position. I'm going to try and make it look not so skinny and I might add in grass to cover the nose and hoof.

Well you definitely do have some talent, keep it up to hone it. I would suggest against tattoo designing though, as a full time tattoo artist, so much more goes into designing a tattoo that most people give absolutely no credit to.

Oops there I go ranting! Many apologizes, I did want to commend your abilities lol.

Tattoo designers mark shading with squiggly lines. They each have their own way to do it though. The best ones will "trace" a photograph and "mark" shading with lines. I've been looking into doing tattoos... but don't know if I have the heart to actually hurt someone, lol. No matter how much they pay me.


Thanks, Horsesdontlie, I think you are off to a very good start : )

God No! Thats why its considered other. Its just an artistic design that I could do for people to see on paper. Those are designs I have made for myself only. It is a whole different ball field. I know that. Thats the only reason why it says Tattoo. ;-)

You have an awesome job then. I love tattoo work, but I'm leaving that to professionals. For example when I decide what I want I will give those sketches to an artist as a start, and they will tell me what can be done...ect.
