I kinda of got inspired by the recent art game... You know the one... The blue eye ball thing?

Around about the same time, I viewed one of Kuoke's art pieces here on NG called "K.L.I.N.T Ghosts". I watched the accompanying speed paint video he/she posted and was hurled into a jealous rage over how good he/she is at speed painting, and also how gorgeous speed paints can look, as evident in "K.L.I.N.T Ghosts".

So I opened an art program I have installed on my personal computer, lit my pipe, and drew a blue round orb. A round blue orb. An orb that is both round and coloured blue. I built on it, shading it, highlighting it until I finished. This isn't that piece.

I started THIS piece because I didn't realise that I had taken up the entire canvas with my singular blue orb.

So I started again, and made it a lot smaller. Then I built on that, shading it and highlighting it. This is that piece.

I don't really think about what it is that I'm drawing when I do draw. Or rather, I don't have a plan. So these wee tiny weird cloud creatures appeared out of nowhere.

I tried to use the speed painting technique of continually building up the paint in different shades and I don't really care if that's not the speed painting technique, it's my speed painting technique so go die.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean that. Please stay a while longer and look at the art some more.

These things are so cute, aren't they? I mean, I wanted to give off a really squishy, snuggly impression. Without sounding like a total homosexual. I'm just kidding, there's nothing homosexual about softness.

Please let me know how this piece makes you feel, and if I cropped it right. I spent more time cropping this image for the preview than I did making the piece and that's an obvious lie but please laugh anyway.

Thank you.

Very nice drawing!

Mind your Shading though. Light is coming from the right, so the shading on the leaf is not right.

Also its good that you play around with perspective (blurring the foreground) but the spider should be less sharp.

I really like the left leaf its very well done!

Great picture nice setting

Thank you ever so much Tomsan for your accurate critique.

I see what you mean about the shading and the spider being too sharp.

Truth be told, the spider was one of the first things I drew in this piece, and never really knew what to do with it. I knew it was too sharp, I guess I was just lazy and didn't dare redo it.

Thanks again for the review, I'm a fan of your work so I'm pret-ty glad you be commenting on mine yo.
