Hi, my name's Quinn. I'm a freshman in college possibly majoring in History, English, or Art. I haven't decided yet.
I am a SuperWhoLockian, a fan of movies, music, books, and honestly a lot of stuff. If you want someone to talk to just put something in my ask box. I respond to pretty much anything. Also I'll do Disney look-a-likes if you want one. Again just put a pic in my ask box.
I’m thinking about buying one and want to know if people are pleased with them and if they’re good for beginners.
So I’m gonna take a break from all the Cumberbatch posts and put this up.
So I’m in my first ever formal art class this semester and the assignment we had for this past week was to go to library and photocopy our faces. Obviously to avoid the embarrassment of pressing my face to the scanner in a public library I used the scanner on my own printer instead. This was the best picture I got out of it.
Then we were supposed to transfer the picture to our full size drawing pad and turn it in on Monday. Here we go!
First square done now 15 more to do. I forgot to take a picture when it was halfway done so we’re just gonna skip to the finished product.
There was really no point to this story I just felt like sharing the first piece of art that I’ve been truly satisfied with in a while. Especially since the critique was harsh today.
Plus this is how i felt while scanning my face at midnight after a closing shift at work:
I always get so awkward because yeah I draw and I’m decent at it, but I don’t spend all my free time thinking about my next piece or drawing amazing things. I draw when it comes to me and when it comes down to it, I’ve always felt that you need some kind of professional skill to be considered an artist. I honestly don’t consider my art good enough to qualify me as an artist so my answer to that is always something like “sort of…” Or “I’m artistically inclined…?” I honestly had better figure out an answer soon if I want to be an animator…
I once had a dream
That you told me to run
To follow you in the sun
To see what you see.
I wanted to go to you
With those beautiful eyes
To fly through your skies
Together we would be.
But my charming prince
You flew too high
Without you I might die
My leaden wings drown me.
this was based off an actual dream that i had
