I lately noticed that my marker's were some freaky ink rollers.. nothing I've seen earlier.. like. ever.. anywhere.. and I didn't like 'em I might have told you this already, I think... but no matter, I do it again.
I'm colorblind, not completely but enough to have lot's of difficulties to do color pictures, so even that I want to make color art I make more pencils and markers.. black-white-grey art. Lately I have started to edit my pencil art to there.. color versions, not anything like real digital art, but simply find the color that fit's my image better than the original black and white does.
now after I found dropart
I realised that I can actually make somewhat quite beautiful stuff out just with one color and I turned my eyes first to tea. Yes I started with coffee, but it work's little funny.. this freaky fruity-fusion tea that taste like crap does leave really beautiful color on paper so I've played a lot with it.. but now after couple accidents with these freaky roller ink pen thingies... I realized I might need to start out Indian Ink.
I lve colors, so that's not the problem, I just have lot's of difficulties to see em #right# or at all.. like different shades of red or blue or.. any shades and sometimes even some colors mix up totally.. so you may understand why I don't do so much color paintings.
but when I work with one color.. like coffee, or this tea.. all I need to see is what I see.. and if I manage to make it look cool to my eye.. I'm pretty sure it will look cool to others too. maybe little different.. but cool.
so I've been now played a lot with these freaky rollons and lately I bought some Indian Ink and now I have also done test with different kind of papers.
I leave you now a slideshow of the different kind of thing's I've done. Some of those I have also made videos but the editing and youtube... it take's time sometimes and I need to keep regular clockwork on when I publish stuff there.. so you might need to wait a little. but no worries I will upload links here when I publish something there.. but now that slideshow..
oh.. about those ad's around. I am sorry for those.. but I must try to get money the ways I can. when someday I get enough patrons and customers I will remove all the add's from my blog, my homepage and maybe even youtube... but for now.. I need the few coins I get from them.
First I did do my latest painting a loooong while.. but that's not the INTERESTING part this time.. and I won't go more to that painting.. you can see photos of it from my facebook art profile
The really interesting part was that I was invited to local art equipment store, super great store by the way if you ever fin your self from Rovaniemi.. check it out.. they have nicely stuff and owners are super great too. It's called Taidekehystämö Hyvärinen
there was this dude who show us papers and little pencils and stuff too and and id was quite awesome. I did fall for it and bought some new paper :D just a small back to get to know if it's great for me.
I did love it every moment.. even that I hate to be around lot's of people... but everything was great.. I love to be around art stuff and we had interesting talk around there. and..
I just wanted to let you know..
I do that quite often I think... I think I do wonder much or even more and some might say even to much.
I don't know have any of you noticed, maybe some, those who've know'n me longer like relatives... well those of 'em who can read... read English I mean... or ... be interested my art life or .. my life at all. and .. I can't blame them.. they see it quite close anyhow.
oh I lost the thin red line again... it happens. it's the really reason why I don't even try to write a book anymore, even that my head is full of stories.. I can't stay in subject my thoughts jump from thing to thing and sometimes... weeeeelll most of times I forget what I was about to say.
anyhow.. I've tried to stay ... professional here.. write the stuff that happened in my art and be.. clinical .. but it's not really me so I thought I let you see my real wondering and wandering mind and write this the same way I usually write, when I don't even try to bother to make sense.
So I tried a new thing with my art. It began when I noticed that I had bought these funny markers from.. (if I would be famous here would be name of the store, or at least name of the markers but I'm not so I have no such kind of sponsors so I wont tell) ahm.. where was I.. hold on a second I must read what I've wrote to find my thoughts. oh em yeah. the markers.. or I'm not sure what those are.. something anyhow... I dried to draw with em...
they ain't bad but there's one fault.. or so I thought at first.. They dry really slow.. like.. really really slow. so It's almost like painting, and that's fine whit me but not when I want to draw. When I want to draw I expect my markers to dry almost in a second so I wont make a mess all the time with these, it's not so.. with these little suckers I have to draw a bit and wait almost hour for continue..i that ain't life... and I know life. I've done it a while. even that I'm not always sure what really happened, like today when.. oh no... we wont go there.. Oh today is Valentines Day, or as we in Finland think.. Friendship day. not so .. love love heart smush stuff.. more like.. Oh HI mate, let's get a beer... or like in our family.. Wife the light of my life made us pancakes at morning and I made us some... meat food that.. was nice. I did hug my wife... that's romantic.
where was I again... the markers... I left em alone for a while then, because... well... I though they suck.
but then I stared to draw something new and then I made a small mess with my fingers with that wet marker ink... and.. I had an Idea.. so I did it completely different that I was originally imagined that drawing in my tiny yet full of galaxies brain.
It's a Steampunk Dwarfcyborg.. not so awesome but I did learn quite a much with it. I'm not sure where that steampunk came from, most likely because my son's friend challenged me to do something such and I don't think I've ever done that so .. why not.. dwarfs are always my favorites and.. hell.. why not go all full throttle when started. dwarfcyborg... I think I'm till learning to use this ink thingie, but I like the way it work and I think it will be my new almost most favorite way to do art.. maybe it could be used like dropart too.. maybe I need to get like.. indian ink for that. don't know. I've tried ones that stuff and it didn't go well.. but hell I've learned so much since then and after the fact that I agreed with myself that art ain't dirty and it was ok for me to go for there... I've learned that my limits are in my own head... in art area. I don't need no freaking schools to tell me how to do this... it might help.. but after all.. if I can't even pass the "let's get in school" tests.. how easy it could be? ... I'm losing it again... where was I ?
I did two more of these marker ink thingies.. I show you one of those now. the second is so awesome that I will show it first to my Patrons in Patreon and.. make a video and show that video to my Patrons.. and then.. after that I let the rest of world see it.
well.. sure I went little extra there.. little cold to teeth and so.. but most of it is done with that freaky marker ink.
back with you again.
Let's just say, so that it will be glear for all. I am NOT a photographer. I have taken some courses for that, but I have no nerves to do it right way and so..
No. I'm a man who likes to play with camera to take photos of thingies I find interesting.
I take lot's of photos and hope that one of em captures the feeling that I got when I started to shoot it.
Usually I take photos of something nature, flowers, insects, well about everything.. abandoned places and things are my favorite, and if there's way to get more than one interesting thing in one photo.. well I'm happy.
It's winter in Finland and currently my favorite thing is snow and ice.. so.. here's couple of those shots.
and now.. I'm back to doing some art.. working on couple drawings, started one new dropart and finishing the commission work.
What, you ask. I tell you.
I got new computer that had ruined with windows 10.. so I've been working to make a linux work in it. and it seem's I did it.
anyhow :D I do have this commission work on too.. that is looking better than hoped for at this early point of work. so liking it.
and further more. I had this meeting today. Hoping to get in this short class that has been designed to help creative people to make up a business.
it was like a interview and I hope I get in. it would give me new insight and other tools and maybe open some new doors to see how and when I get things rolling good.
let's see.. what else..
I've been still releasing art to Deviant art.. but most of older stuff is there already.
I've done lot's of new youtube videos, but I share those first at Patreon.. got'ta give people who support me something special.
I was let me get a thought... meant to say that someone say something and it gave me an idea.. that I will make special effects on my normal drawings. no higher purpose.. I love to draw with pencil but the grey-black-whiteness .. it get's boring so I want to play with ideas.
aaand that's it for this.
I have let google to ad adds here.
I hope you accidentally hit the buttons and maybe I get some extra cash that way.
Times are hard.. maybe someday I have enough patrons and customers so I can stop doing this.
anyhow.. I've been quite busy, doing my latest commission work. Working with Deviant Art and Fine Art America...
trying to make my new computer work..
and hurting my head by all the thinking how to make a living.
and yes. I've done lot's of art and shoot lot's of videos of me doing art.. and next week I shall reveal new one to my Patrons in Patreon.
anyhow. Here's one earlier video I made :D
