    Am I An Artist

    I stare with you at the colored palettes on the wall, Chosen, judged, and hung like captured men. You see something there, I see it in you. You stare, you gasp, you cry. I see some things, too; but you don’t see it in me. I look and others gasp, others cry. Your feelings wash...

    What are your opinions on art

    that is created using only a computer? I know many find it to be not 'art' at all, and am curious as to what EP artists think.I much prefer creating in the more traditional ways most of the time, but I see the advantage that computer programs offer, mainly saving time, and...

    Manhattan because it's just so beautiful. First we'll probably draw our hometown first.

    No matter the specific shape,

    the intended piece, I sit at the wheel calling forth a clone of myself, the curves, the unexpected edges, imperfect, deceptively simple with varying textures and like me, they craved to be touched, held reverently and frequently as both something familiar and surprising, part of...

    It's simply my purpose.

    Word, graphite, paint, water, wind, sand.... All right up there with the materials of magic themselves. Brushes like Phoenix feathers, y'know? It's that magic of dancing on a roof with alleyways on all sides. That magic of the colors of twilight and sunrise. It's just... it's...

    One day, while using Google images,

    shockingly, I found my painting online! I clicked once, zoomed in and couldn’t believe it. But then, I knew, it was impossible, for I haven’t ever uploaded any of my creative-blurbs online before. So I really looked closely, and found out that it was actually someone else...

    Inspired By My Best Friend On Ep :)

    Hey Art fans! :) I'm back with another step-by-step demonstration of my work. This time I used my day off EP to start work on a portrait of a horse. I have been inspired by the work of one of my friends, and though this is nothing like the style that she does, it is, at...

    I have always loved being creative.

    Writing,painting you name it. My art teacher hated my work. My English teacher adored my writing. I guess in that art class I was lonely. Nobody takes art seriously so I was the only student. That made my teacher hard on me. Then I insulted her and got suspended. Chaos is my...

    ?Listen closely and you?

    ll hear it whisper. Try to drown it out and it will begin to scream. The echoes of your words are my nightmare, your lingering touch only but a dream. Flashbacks come in waves, i crash closer to the sandy shores with each blow. Is really the end or yet another beginning? My mind...

    It was 4 years back when i wanted to conquer

    the world. I started drawing as a kid and at 12 discovered my artistic abilities when i would create something and be appreciated for it. Those were the best moments in my otherwise depressing childhood/ teen years as i was an underdog barely known at school, the misfit, the...

    My best art is created at approximately 3am.

    Whenever I actually need sleep, I make the best art. Whenever I actually need to get a piece done for a due date during the day, it just doesn't work out. Creativity only seems to happen when in wants to happen.

    I enjoy drawing and writing short stories.

    My latest interest is woodworking. Instead of following plans, I create wooden furniture from my imagination.

    I am a Thief. Whenever I go,

    I steal. I take pictures of beautiful images. And I keep them all, all of them for free, in a drawer of a pile of my existing memories. The memories, which may be drawn out later again, by me. I need to gain the access to it by the only key I own, I refuse to share. I don’t...

    I think how artists 'see' can be compared to

    this emoji: xD . I used to think it was just the letters ''x'' and ''D'' and it didn't make sense, but then one day I saw it was a face.

    A study of shadows and source of light.

    Shadows in painting are not actually black or gray. Shadow takes on the color of the object that's creating the shadow. 22"x18" Medium: Acrylic
