Finding My Niche in Art

Thank you for inviting me to show some of my artwork.

Right now I am learning different art mediums trying to find my niche. The pic below are the latest pastel drawings (over top my daughter's picture of aliens - drawn when she was 5 or 6 years old).

I'm thinking drawing may be my preferred medium just because it's such a portable medium and when I retire and we start travelling, I can simply pull out my sketch pad and pencils and quickly sketch to capture the moments.

hi5.gif Very nice! I always loved pastels as well, and you're right, you can work with those anywhere, unlike oil paint.

I find pastels difficult to work with, but you did a pretty good job there! cheers.gif I love to work with color pencils though.

Very nice and thanks for sharing! hi5.gif

Yes, Octo, I was thinking coloured pencils too. Did you and JR ever post any of your artwork on this forum?

Most of my stuff is done with photoshop these days. I used to draw comics, still have the talent but all my work is back in the states.
Here's something I just got done doing for an animated music video Octo and I are working on for accidental stoner...

Kewl!

Did you purposely change the lighting perspective between the tail and front and then the teeth? I thought maybe this was a shot of mariachi scorp was moving forward. I know, I know, you know what the ğck you are doing. I nit pick. I can't help myself...

that pic is absurd uniquestranger. sorry but the only way id keep that is if my 10 yr old painted it and it wouldn't even be stuck on the fridge for a week. Seems you have some imagination but no idea how to commun icate it. Redo it. Put the pitcher into the picture. I wonder if the handle is like that or you can't draw a curve. The pink is awful, why so ğkking much of it? No focus, no perspective, no balance. is that a pear? Delineate it, it looks like part of the pitcher. Puerile. sorry. If you redid it without cutting off the handle, took out 80% of the pink, made the flowers less faded, you'd have a cool painting. Hope ypou don't take this wrong.
