    The Right Side Of My Brain Fonally Gets Some Show Time.

    With Art and writing I get to escape and release all my feelings. Everyline circle and shape is meant to represent something that is soley connmected with my life as a whole. So even though its really fun its very relaxing and theraputic.

    I've been wanting to post this

    for a while. This is something I made when I was little. I believe I was around 8, 9, or 10 years old. I created this heart piece using just paint stamps that were round and in the shapes of circles.

    I Took My Art Back

    My art concentration is Visual Puns

    but uh, I got distracted . I really like spray paint art but it makes me nervous because it's quick work. This is my amateur attempt though! I know I could do better!

    I guess manga is my specialty

    but I'm not very good. I'm trying to get into realism but it's hard finding things to draw; scenery doesn't really interest me and neither does portraiture unless I'm drawing someone I love. But yeah, if you wanna see then just check out my Instagram I guess; @pokemonplague

    My Outlet

    I have tried almost all outlets of art... I tried photography, drawing, and painting - with acrylics. I was terrible at them all, but I decided to try again... This time I paint with watercolors! And I am good at it!!

    I highly admire people

    who can make a work of art from a simple white canvas. I can draw simply, but those who have achieved the level of distinction. I tip my hat to you. :)

    But it sucks when you get the artist's block.

    I'm sitting here with my sketchbook open, yet I have no idea on what to draw. People? Scenery? Animals? objects? My mind is blank. Fudge, I need to find more friends who appreciate or are involved with art. -grabby hands- --Stella
