Art Prints – EP1 Sketching

Yooo welcome to the blog. Posts to give you sum background info and details that are not on the gram. 

Art Prints. Something that I haden’t made until a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had the procreate app for a little while now, latwly I got lured by a lot of artists online who were living their best lives on the digital drawing app. One evening I got inspired and needed to draw, my room is full of scraps of paper and miscelanious items. So I got out a piece of paper and started drawing this lady. 

She is inspired by me, a bit if my alter ego so to speak. She needed freckles, as I often draw them on my face. My dad and nieces have freckles, they all wear them so well. My Chinese zodiac is the snake and I very much identify with this animal and it’s characteristics. The concept of the stars and the zodiac signs is something very interesting to study and sometimes give me insights as to how I can use my strong and weak points.

I sticked the face I just drew on a larger piece of paper and decided she needed some helpers to accompany and support her. My christian friend felt a bit dubious about the whole debacle at first, as she was like ‘dafuq r those snakes evil or demonious?’. I assured her, the snakes are not demons from hel. Or are they? *Insert evil laugh*

I like sketching on paper, it gives me control and I can articulate the visions in my head the best. Beginning on an ipad from scratch with just an idea is something I need a little more practise for. When sketching, more and more snakes got involved and it not looked like an aliexpress version of medusa. Something I was content with. 

Curious to hear and see more? In the next post I’ll update you on how I proceeded with the making of.
