It’s rather weird how much I’m sharing my art over the World Wide Web. I always lacked the confidence to do so in fear that me and my art would get ridiculed. However, a few months ago, with encouragement from my family, I created a DeviantArt account with the view to share my work.
I’m really enjoying the experience of sharing coloured pictures as well as rough sketches. In the space of 5 months I felt a humongous confidence and enthusiasm souring through me. I always enjoyed drawing but sharing my art with the public feels like a big achievement for me personally. I suppose you could say I’ve always locked up my expression by keeping my works to myself but now I feel like I’m able to express myself freely without worrying or over-thinking.
After all, I never draw to be popular, I draw for enjoyment. I could literally draw for an entire day and never lose my smile. =)
Strangely, since opening my Deviantart account, I actually feel that I’m improving my art style. The recent illustration, Reiko Arisugawa, represents the sort of style that I’m trying to nail down in terms of colouring and inking. I really like Reiko and I like to think that I did a good job with this picture.
What picture am I going to complete next? I’m not entirely sure. I have a lot of drafts in the works but the problem with me is that I get so many ideas for pictures, I tend to leave some pictures unfinished and start news ones. That’s why it takes a long time for me to finish a picture. Haha.
I do have some pictures that are close to being finished though. At this moment in time I’m into badass anime girls wielding kickass weapons. In the final drafting stages I have one with Aiz and Ryu from Danmachi, Jurie Crotze from Atelier Shallie, Karen from Shomin Sample, Kirin from The Asterisk War and Yukina from Strike the Blood.
I’m not sure which one I will ink first but I will upload all them when they are complete. However, I do have other projects that I’m planning as well. I’m planning a couple of Christmas themed pictures which I’m anticipating to draw early so I can finish them on time. Haha. I even have my own personal OC character in the works. I don’t think I will complete her anytime soon though.
At this moment in time I will never set a deadline for any of my pictures as they will give me an unnecessary headmush, and that would never do!
