A week ago, my sister and I had a long day at the hospital. Longer for her than for me. And I sketched a shrunken head in my journal, and posted it on Facebook. To make a short story long, a friend liked the sketch. So I did what I do, and here’s the result.
I am an artist. That means I can see myself however the hell I want.
Drawn in #Procreate. Rendered in #brushstrokeapp. Some fx (in the background) via the clone brush in #iColorama.
The latest to come tumbling from my fingers. Much of the work I do is a process of purging. I’m glad to be able to share this “purge” with you.
“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?”
“Practice!” Old joke, but it still applies. People constantly ask how I achieve such great light and reality to my analog and digital art. Short answer: PRACTICE. Long answer: Constantly challenge how the brain wants to see something, through regular and daily practice. I’m always drawing, scribbling, sketching and seeing.
HOWEVER, My goal isn’t to become a better realist. I’m hoping to relearn how to deconstruct what I see, the way I used to.
Just stick with me, kids… Watch what happens to my work. Personally, I’m dying to know how this all comes out!
This is one of the ways I stay inspired. I keep journals and blank books with me, where ever I go. I have my favorite pens (Pilot Precise V5) with me. And I draw or sketch.
Stay inspired! ~ Gomi
