2k18 Doodle Place

RIGHT. Made an imgur account.
If they take a page out of photobuckets book and ruin this gallery for me as well I may rage. Or cry. One or the other.

Feel free to post, comment or critique! I honestly don't mind.
Portals to other places I throw art are in my signature.

Re: 2k18 Doodle Place

Still trying to get the hang of the "wet on wet" technique. Not sure if its me or the fact i'm using acrylic inks. No amount of water will shift those once they dry xD
Loving masking fluid though, wish I'd discovered that earlier.

Re: 2k18 Doodle Place

A redraw of something I did in 2011 XXX Which is currently my most fav'd thing on DA, which upsets me considering that was 7 years ago. Needed to prove I had indeed improved :laughing: It was also an entry for a Valentines event competition on this site too, funnily enough.


Re: 2k18 Doodle Place

Two experiments. I keep getting critiqued that I don't take risks and i'm "stiff". Which is true and I see it. I love art that has relaxed almost lazy/rushed strokes but I can never replicate them and that bothers me. So I've started doing one hour simple painting sessions in hopes of making me more "relaxed", these were my first two speed paints.

There are mistakes in both, in the first I smudged the coloured flowers by mistake xD and in the second some 'out of date' masking tape tore the top layer of paper and almost made me rage quit :joy:

Just because I smile
