    My Artist Life

    Even though I am young, I still consider myself an artist. I am still in high school, I still have to do chores, I still have to be a minor, but I still believe that I am a devoted artist. I may not paint or draw as often as I would like to, but that's life and you may not always...

    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

    Big side hobby of mine next to gaming

    and singing. My profile picture is an example of a self-portrait. A bigger version can be seen in my photo album along with some other pieces. I'm big on drawing humanoids. Animals, I'd have to say, are my biggest weakness. While I'd like to draw some amazingly detailed dog or...

    I Took My Art Back

    When I was a young girl, I drew a picture that told the story of abuse. My abuser burned my wrist on a radiator. I didn't draw anymore and never colored outside the lines in my coloring books. I remember art classes.....I loved it all so much and the teachers gave me C's because...

    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!!

    After 3 O'Clock

    My Sundays usually start like this : I'll sleep till 11 am, then wake up for some breakfast. After that, I'll hang around until 12, and that's when I leave the house for my art classes. I'll take the bus there, or if I'm lucky my dad will send me and my mom there. Since my mom...

    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

    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.
