Sometimes the most fun pieces come from the most random inspiration. I was watching one of my favorite artist, Kellee Riley livestream and for some reason opened up photoshop and just started doodling. Mind you, I usually prefer drawing on paper and then working from there digitally so this was a new thing for me. For weeks now I’ve been working on it, on and off, little by little. It wasn’t until tonight that I decided:” Right, its time to buckle down and finish this finally!”.
What I’ve been working on is not focusing to much on it being perfect so much that it causes me misery but rather enjoying the process and just go with it. Sure, theremight be some flaws, but I can always go back and fix them, but they are not something that should cause me to hate the end result. Far to often I hate on myself for not creating these perfect drawings like my idols do. Then I have to remind myself that I’m on my own artistic journy, I should not compare myself to others as their journy is always different from mine. Need to remember why I started drawing when I was an angsty teen, it was because it gave me an escape and the end result made me proud of myself. I could create something beautiful, something that could make me smile and remembering the feeling as I created it.
This piece, the girl with the antlers, might be the first in a series that might evolve into a bigger project collab with my husband. Will be exciting to see it comes to life and to share it with you all.
Lots of love!
