That pointilism in the sky was actually me drumming on the cardboard with my Sharpie markers.

It's finished now.

My first attempt at semi-realism with only Sharpies on card (as if realism wasn't already hard enough to do). I will say, I did enjoy it, but there are things that are niggling at me.

EDIT: While I'm at it, here are also a few other submissions I've skipped --

And now, I finished this little thing. The first time I ever experimented with perspective because normally, I avoid it.

P.S. One day, @Jazza, I'll consider myself ready to participate in a Challenge of the Month. But not just yet. I aim high, and therefore need to practise in order to draw accordingly.

A girl's face and shoulders and stuff that I doodled earlier in the day. Might be used as an album base.

I've been drawing a lot lately and it seems like this thread is being kept afloat quite a bit, but here is a drawing I did over this afternoon. This is based on an album cover idea I had back in early December of last year.

Also, it feels nice to see that medieval drum of mine in digital art format for the first time.

When finished, this might be the last drawing you see from me.
Nobody gives a fuck.
Hurrah...

I feel your pain.

It's a soul-destroying experience, isn't it?

Heart ache. To feel you don't belong, to feel alone again...Sometimes our best is not enough. Most of the time, a lot of people do not understand.

Even with music it's the same, but at least people can sorta kinda hear, in addition to seeing, the expression that goes into it. And while I admit I am more of a musician than a visual artist, not having any kind of break for 11 years in visual art only gives me evidence that I am a bad artist, rather than a good one. It only reinforces bad, rather than good.

Perhaps, 11 years is a lot of experience. Most of the arts need an incredible amount of skill and experience. And a mind that can think that way, to imagine that way. Your situation may not stem from failure. Perhaps a lack of opportunity or spotlight. We have to understand that we have brethren...a whole lot of brothers and sisters doing what we are doing but also fighting for a spot. We can be gracious and let them get that spot or...we can wait in line with the rest of em. There is also the possibility of making your own path. The choice is in your hands.
Perhaps a lack of opportunity or spotlight.

That sentence, or the essence thereof, keeps coming back to me.

I've been drawing for longer, but I say "11 years" because that was from which point I knew I would never get a break however hard I tried. Ending up last place in a competition with ten consolation prizes and three top places (there were only fourteen of us taking part) made me the subject of all sorts of abuse by parents and friends, something which I have never really recovered from. They say confidence comes from within, but if the means of gaining that confidence is severely impaired, what then? Until I heal (which might be never at this rate), I need a crutch, I need to lean on others' support.

If I made my own path, I think it ideal -- I just don't know what to do to even start on it.

A great deal of touching up I did to a previous work of mine.

First attempt at digital painting, unfinished. A reimagining of this.

I really would appreciate some help as to what I'm doing wrong, or what I ought to do better -- mind you, it isn't finished by any stretch, but I'd like to learn some pointers in the process of finishing.

It's as done as I can make it at this point in time.

Also, since I'm bringing my art thread back from the dead, here's a picture to explain what's been going on.
I've been taking to watercolours lately, after not having done so for 20 years. Seems I have a knack for it? Or so people say.

Anyway, two of the bits in the image below, i.e. the splatters, are stock; the rest is my own work. I scanned it in and removed the white background, and that's about all I could do anyway. This is for the redesign of my website, and I felt it'd be a discreet way of including my own art. Also, if visuals are often paired with genres of music, I wonder what watercolours say about the music I make.

Concept art for this song, which was drawn closer to its filming day (20 July).

Brush pen on A4 paper. No, I didn't scan this one; a friend took it on her phone camera.

Doing this with next year's, and the following year's Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch in mind.
Watercolour on paper suited for it.

Detail of what I'm working on now. Black pen + ink pencils. The idea hit me very strongly a few Sundays ago, and I was determined to draw it ever since.

I'll be sure to scan it in properly when I get the opportunity.

Earlier shot of progress, which is a lot clearer, but you get the idea.
