My first time drawing in years
« on: April 11, 2018, 07:50:45 PM »
I'm not good at art, and I've never been good at drawing, no matter how hard I try, so I obviously gave it up for writing. Someone suggested I try a more graffiti-esque style though, so I thought I might put up my less-than-amateur work somewhere. It's not great, but it was nice to try and make something after a couple years. Maybe I'll see if I can get good at this style sometime.

*I took it down for now; if I actually do start drawing again I'll put it up with whatever else I've done.

It's a little small, but it's there.

I do like what I see, but the details are lost with the image size. Although graffiti art is definitely a legitimate style. Best of luck with it.

Well, too bad, I suppose. It's really awkward to try and post with my phone, and my time is limited, so maybe I'll put up my work if I do more of it and I have more than five minutes and it'll show up haha.

Well here's what I've been doing instead of catching up with camp nano.

READ-This is the first one I did.
Spoiler

ALTF4-I used a different set of markers on this one and did a half-assed job as a result. The letters were pretty good compared to my other ones though, so I'm kinda disappointed the colouring messed up the whole thing.
Spoiler

AWOL-Long story short I got lazy and decided not to colour the letters, which doesn't look too bad, I don't think. The A is too close to the W though. Ignore the image quality, or try to.
Spoiler

M.I.A.-This one is ok. It sums up what I'm bad at and what I'm okay at in a single image, basically. Just like the ones above, the image is pretty bad, but I'm not taking another lol.
Spoiler

Let me know what you think, I guess. I haven't done any visual art in at least a couple years, so this might just be a once every few years kind of thing. I'm really not much of an artist.

These are some great works, Effie.

If I had to pick which one is my favorite, I would go with READ. :thumbsup:

Thank you! I've had most of the people I've showed my art to say the first one is the best, so I guess I just gotta figure out how to capture that same effect haha.

Dude those look great! I wish I could do stuff like that. It'd be one step towards my dream as being a badass parkour graffitti artist.

Thank you. :) I think that's a dream most of us have to be honest, maybe we'll get there at some point :D

Another one I did for a friend's birthday the other day. I was going to do one for each of the main characters of my YA series, but their names are really awkward for a graffiti-style drawing, so I've gotta come up with some new words.

Anyway, here it is. My lines are still super shaky D: and I had to cut off the side part to keep my identity safe

Got to keep that secret identity a secret. :ninja:

So how long will it be until we start seeing these on trains. ;)

Maybe when I have something deeper to tag than the word 'read' lol also gotta get approved by the city because I'm a goody-two-shoes law abiding citizen and all that jazz. Vandalism is bad, my dudes  :noyoudon't:
