My Art Journey : 2009 - 2018
Happy Sunday everyone!
This week I was working on so many drawings but I can't continue them, I felt uninspired and unmotivated... This happens to me like all the time, so don't worry. But I always find a way to make myself feel better and if sometimes nothing helps, I accept the fact it's just a bad day... But today... :D
Today, I thought I found my old drawings and sketchbooks... and oh - my - god!
Actually, if not my mother, I never found it. So a big big thanks to her. Mwah!
I'm going to say, I never felt more inspired! But really! :D I laughed soooo so much and just.. aaaah! I feel so cringey and embarrassed, but I need to show you guys my art journey! The stuggles and the hard work too...
What you'll see here and now, I'm sure you're not ready for! I mean, I wasn't ready either. Haha!
I know, we all start somewhere, but seeing how much I learnt... I, myself can't believe I improved this much as an self-taught artist.
And if you someone who follows my blog daily, you know how many times I say 'keep practising and never give up'. You'll see why I say this, even it's boring and annoying.
If you ever feel down and uninspired, and you feel you can't contiue, just come back here, see how much I struggled too, 'cause I sure did, and I hope you will feel a bit better and maybe inspired again. :)
I don't really want to say more. Let's start with 2009... I mean, I always drew, like others, but I remember that year I wanted to draw more and take drawing 'seriously', 'cause I remember, I decided - 'Someday, I will draw just as good as my art teacher!' :'D She really inspired me back then...
The only drawing I found from that year is this little drawing... But it's enough to show how I really drew when I was 13 years old. Yep.
I don't even know what to add here, I was having such great time with graphite pencil drawings, and I continued doing them, after I saw how bad I'm using colored pencils. The end of the year I really fell in love with Bruno's music. I was a realy big fan, so I drew him so many times. Haha. Also that realistic drawing of him omg... :'D But I was so proud, okay?:D
I didn't do any big pieces, as you can see. Just doodles and I kept practising... Figuring out how and what I want really.
I didn't give up on colored pencils, even tho I knew it wasn't that good.
I really struggled, I wanted to use colored pencils, but I bought so many graphite pencils instead, and I kept practising portraits with them.
Adding much more detail and trying to do more realistic pieces.
Juny 16, 2014 - When I registered to insta and started posting my 'better quality' drawings.
I was so happy and inspired back then... ahaha. :D That time I drew so so much.
I kept doing what I was doing, keep practising and using ink and watercolor too.
My first art camp exerience... my first oil and acrylic painting ever... What a great year!
The end of the year I bought my first two set of Polycolor colored pencils. I always loved colored pencil drawings. I couldn't give up on that... Buying those sets was one of the best decisions of my life. :')
The end of the year I found about this amazing site... And that was just beginning. It really was.
I met the nicest people here, I learnt again much more! Since that, there wasn't a week that I didn't draw, but before that I remember I didn't draw for months... But that's the past now, and I only look foward and I will keep work much much more harder. :')
Please don't give up on what you love to do.
I mentioned, that someone told me not to draw with colored drawings, because it's wasn't good at all. And what did I do? I didn't stop. I was believing in myself and kept working much more harder than I used to, and here I'm now.
I keep putting more and more to my drawings, and I will continue do that.
Hope this inspired you too and you'll do your best too!
The last two drawings I'm the most proud of! I put so so much detail to them... and all the energy and patience...
