If you can suggest a better category then, please. Do so. I really wasn't sure where to put this at all.
Something a little different
This came about while I was searching DA for some stock reference for an anime pic I was working on. I came across this image by
and decided to have a little fun with it.
I'm not sure what my motivation was. Perhaps it was the 1 cup of coffee, and 5 cups of tea I had today (its 4am and I'm no where near tired) or maybe it was the fact that I got a message from my old art teacher saying the following: "HELLO! On behalf of BHSVA Career Club, I would like to invite you to submit a digital image or artwork for our first alumni art exhibition - March 16 to March 31.The purpose of this show is to help educate our current students and parents about all the great college opportunities available. Please write a short statement about your piece and your college experience.
Now. I may be interpreting her message completely the wrong way and looking too much into it (to those who know me personally and got the same message) I do that a lot. If I am, pay me no mind. But, when I first got the message, it was almost like she was talking to those who actually attend an Art College. They would have more progress to show right? Rather than someone, like me, who goes to a Community College and who's school's art programs suck major booty T_T Not to mention I haven't had a chance to take any form of Art (aside from Art History) because art classes are considered Electives (or as I like to say "privilege" classes) Ugh.
Anyway. I felt...left out, to put it simply. A lot of people I graduated with go to these prestigious Art Colleges and, looking at there work, they've improved a hell of a lot. I'm proud of them all. When I started applying to colleges I think Carol (my art teacher) was a little disappointed in me that I choose not to go to art college. Frankly, I had enough of it. I was tired of all the constant drawing and painting and I was mostly fed up with it never being good enough for her. No matter what I did, there was always something wrong with my work. Always. And it's very discouraging to hear nothing but negative feedback on a painting you spent weeks on. Some people learn from it. I do too. But, she ave way too much of it for my liking and to take it to heart and apply it to better my paintings or what have you.
Why am I telling you all this? I don't know. Anyway. Back to the picture...
I enjoyed working on this a lot and I do intend on e-mailing it to Carol. I really shouldn't care about sending it into the art show. I've submitted work to art shows in the past that I really wasn't all too proud of. Every time I looked around, I always saw something better than what I did and again, that also, is very discouraging. I never like any of my work (non anime related) I cant realistically draw people for the life of me, or animals. That's where Carol and I mostly bumped heads. I do ok with still life's but...eh. Nothin to call the local paper about.
I'll submit it regardless. I don't care if she doesn't like it. I've given up with trying to please her...anyone for that matter because I can never seem too anyway.
Anyway. I hope you like it. This took me maybe...7 hours. I don't like all that blank white space on the left. I couldn't think of anything to put there that wouldn't take away from the actual image.
....Selfish as this may sound, I'm secretly hoping this might land me a DD...one day.
Hey. A girl can dream ;>> I mean...it'd be nice.
Also, I think I over-did it in some parts....
You tell me. As long as your constructive in your critique I wont have a problem.
