On The Art Of Lying To Yourself
I made the mistake of saying that I wasn’t going to art for a good long while.
“If I have time to create I want it to be writing,” I said. Oh, foolish, foolish fool that I was.
The first art I created was an idea that’s been rattling around in my brain for a while, the ‘Running To, Running From’ graphic. I had already created the running man, so I thought it wouldn’t take me too long to put together.
It turned out of that it took me longer than I thought to get the gradient and composition right. And then the font. Don’t even get me started on fonts.
I quite like this one because it takes the field of science, which I am in awe of, and the field of running, which I wish I could stick with. I have since thought of some more science-based graphics, and I’m looking forward to working on them.
Back to The Cosmos
But, after creating this graphic I wanted MOARH! And so I decided that I’d go back to the cosmic range. I’ve had requests to create more cosmic animals. And I do love my cosmic fox art and the photograph that it came from.
So I trawled through my animals pics to see what else I could create.
I settled on the Mother with Foal Pony, because the ponies themselves are stunning. I shall be selling both prints when they are finished, the cosmic one is very much a work in progress, and the photo needs a little colouring to make it pop.
I also have plans for cosmic deer, goat, buzzard, peacock, bunny, and I think I have a squirrel image somewhere that I can use. But I haven’t found one close enough to the camera and in a good enough pose yet.
So yeah, I fell off the art wagon hard.
