Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I like it. I dabbled in watercolors when I was younger. My medium is almost entirely ink and pencil, but sometimes only watercolors express the image you want to convey.

Today I was bored and snowed in, so I drew a dragon with a cup of coffee.

Drawing dragons isn't nerdy enough, so now I've drawn a dragon on the TARDIS:

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I had the last class of my Watercolor class I'm taking. I wanted to do a stylized American flag, so this is what I came up with.

My rough pencil drawing


Final Watercolor, I'm not happy with my stars. I originally thought I wanted these big, bold stars. However after finishing it, I should have gone with smaller ones. Oh well, still pretty happy with it.

Nice! And that's the cool thing about classes, they help you refine your craft. I took a photography class a couple years back, and just the practice and attention to detail really helped me.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Classes definitely help sharpen and refine inborn talents, that's for sure. I've always been a good artist but when I took art classes back in school my skills got a more consistent workout and consequently my artwork tended to be more elaborate and eclectic.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

When I was younger I was a decent drawer and painter. I have very limited 'natural' gifts when it comes to art. So I always looked for ways to improve. I've read a ton of books, asked for tips and help from friends that were way better then me. I drew or painted somewhat regular until about 10/15 years ago. I kind of just gave it up, I just didn't have time or passion for it anymore.

I'm trying to rekindle that a little bit, starting off with something that always boggled my mind, Watercolors. I'm not really into Chaos, especially in the art I try to produce. So this has been a real learning process for me, I signed up for the next class and it starts in a few weeks. If you look at the Watercolor I have done so far, I'm still treating it like Acrylic paint. Trying to force it to bend to my will instead of letting it flow. I hope to embrace it more in the next round of classes.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

It's my understanding that watercolor can be quite challenging to master. One of my favorite watercolor artists is Jon Muth (I curated the collection that these originals were a part of - they're amazing. His work in Zen Shorts is also incredible). Best of luck in your next class and beyond!

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

My last art course was in school and that has been a while. But during a postgraduate study, I met some skilled graphic designers and that got me excited again about drawing. Since I've got a lot of free time at the moment, I would like to delve deeper into the matter. One person recommended me the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards. Has anybody read it?
