Finding your own style #3...

Hi everyone,

I have found this process interesting and it is about to get even more interesting. Taking a step back  I found somewhat of a similar style at least between 2 of the chosen styles, but then if that is what I like.... then lets see how we do.

Step #3 Analyze each of the images you chose.

Da Vinci:
-portrait studies
-softness of expression
-smooth face
-neutrality of her expression
-proportions of the face.
-color pallet (browns)

-cleanliness of lines
-different with of the lines
-simple shading
-expression of the face
-movement of the hair
-implisit beauty

Danica Sills:
-clothing style
-drawing style

And that ends our step# 3. By the way this is just a summery of the step. I mostly did it with Pen and Paper.

One more step to go.

Finding your own style step #1 & 2...

Hi everyone

Lets get started!!
As mentioned before I will be using the steps posted by Christopher Kerry which can be found here  if you are interested in also following them.

I wont be copying his explanations for each steps, so go look at his tutorial to find all the information you need.

Step #1  Identify 3 artists or art Styles that really resonate with you emotionally

Artists #1 Classical: If you know me even a little bit you know that im a great fan of the old classics, but in this case I'm going to choose Leonardo Da Vinci

Artist #2 Art Nouveau : One of the most beautiful and elegant art styles in my opinion , we are going with  Alphonse Mucha

Artist #3 Contemporary :  this one was difficult. there are so many talented artist out there right now, however im only going to be looking at line-art  for this  activity so I'm going with Danica Sills.

Step #2 Chose one image that best represents each of your choices from step one.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Alphonse Mucha

Danica Sills

And that ends our step #1 and #2  , 3 and 4 will have their own posts. 
lets see what this journey takes us.

Dusting off the blog! the start of a new project..

Hi everyone,

So I currently have time on my hands,  and I decided that I should star with a new personal growth project.

For years I have been on and off on art classes, and this time I felt that I needed to start on something new, which lead me into Illustration and Graphic novels.  Why because partly its something I have not tried before, how ever during my life I have said that I would like to illustrate a book or even to create a coloring book ( since they are in fashion now for both adults and children).

One of my last art classes was on watercolour, and I started watching quite a few videos on the technique, and you find everything in youtube, from good and welcome advise and tutorials, to people who don't understand the technique well. This how ever let me to understand that I don't have an art style of my own. 

So for the next weeks we are going to start on this new route of Illustration and graphic novels as well as finding an appropriate style for such medium.

To start of I have searched thought the internet, to start on this journey and I have divided into 2 parts.
1) "Finding your style" by Christopher Kerry  which I will be starting and posting each of the steps as I go.

2)Online courses,
    Coursera: How to make a comic book
    Kadenze: Comic: Art in relationship

I will start posting here as I go along in each one of the steps. I will be posting every week, but it might be delayed on the according week.

My pinterest will now also have a new folder for inspiration on this little projects, from art styles to images, to online little tutorials.

Lets start with the new year!
