Lost all of Act 5 of Monarch as laptop was stolen. Plus bazillions of notes and ideas for future acts.
Zephne by turq-dorian
Zephne
Art trade with :iconmrsmuffet: wherein I'm drawing her character Zephne and she's drawing either Carrot or Iggy, I don't know who yet, it will be a surprise. :iconkermityayplz:

It's not the best thing I ever did but I think it came out okay, especially noting how I did the lines in Illustrator (which I just started using yesterday) with a Wacom (which I just started using a few days ago). Colored in Photoshop.

Illustrator CS5 Interface and Brushes by turq-dorian
Illustrator CS5 Interface and Brushes
For those of you who haven't used Illustrator, some advice: GET IT! This thing is so cool. For one, it smooths out your lines as you make them so they're not all wibbly-wobbly (VERY useful if you're drawing with a tablet and are new to it, or just, have an unsteady hand). You can't really use it without a tablet though, unfortunately. It comes with a lot of cool brushes already in the program, you can see some of them here.

EDIT: After discovering how beautifully the Wacom works with Adobe Illustrator, I am UN-retiring from art. Also, not sure about it yet, but it seems I may have something in the works involving HAVING SOMEONE COLOR MY LINE ART FOR ME DGADKGHAKJGHAKSH. That would make things vastly easier.

Also, about that person who commented: I know, I was mean. But that comment they posted was extremely arrogant and rude. Perhaps a bit true, but the pot shouldn't call the kettle black, eh? I'm leaving this journal up as a reminder to myself of this experience of frustration and learning. Art is a bitch, but it's harder to leave her than you might think.

ORIGINAL POST BELOW:


_________________________________________________________

Ah, the wonders of art - it fills some people with joy to create beautiful works with pen and ink, others prefer to go digital, and some revel in sculpture, and for more people still their favorite thing in the world is to simply bask in a painting's radiant glow, but as for me, well,

I FUCKING HATE IT. :iconbanragealsoplz:

I FUCKING HATE ART. I HATE MAKING ART AND I HATE MY STUPID HANDS FOR CRAMPING UP EVERY TIME I EVEN LOOK AT A PENCIL AND I HATE YOU FOR BEING BETTER AT ART THAN I AM. I HATE WOBBLY LINES AND THE OMINOUS UNKNOWING WHAT COMES WITH BEING UNABLE TO TELL WHETHER OR NOT SOMETHING LOOKS GOOD AND I HATE THE FRUSTRATION OF HAVING A REALLY GOOD IDEA IN MY HEAD AND BEING COMPLETELY UN-FUCKING-ABLE TO EXECUTE IT. I HATE ALL THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE - PHOTOSHOP, FLASH, WACOM, COPIC MARKERS AND PAINTS - AND HOW THEY COST A SMALL FORTUNE AND TAKE YEARS OF TRAINING TO MASTER AND EVEN AFTER I THROW EXORBITANT AMOUNTS OF TIME AND DOLLARS AT THEM I STILL CAN'T FUCKING DRAW HOW I WANT TO. PRACTICING DOES NOT HELP! I'VE GOT AN ART DEGREE, FOR FUCK'S SAKE! I LEARNED TO DRAW REALISM!


No, art is not something that brings me joy, quite the opposite - even when I sit around doodling with a paper and pencil, I feel equal parts bored, unfulfilled, anxious, and frustrated. As far as I'm concerned, art and me doing it is a giant sack of soggy dicks - I just like looking at art, and since I have good ideas I want to see them done up in really nice artwork.

Anyways, I am retiring from art. Writing, you are the far cheaper - and far funner - form of creation for me. :heart:

So, question: why robots? I noticed they make a frequent appearance in your gallery, what is it about them you like so much?

Some day I shall make a point of doing that, unless I die first in a horrible twerking accident.
