Really digging the brain in the jar, so Matrix-y. And that's a great rendition of a human heart, except for all the mess and pain around it! Hopefully you vented your frustrations well by drawing it like that.


I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

some art i had uploaded on the computer a lil while ago.
i have a few more works in progress that i will post in due time.

tattoo flash practice
Image

mixed media painting. i drew the pencil sketch really baked one time while visiting my parents. and later really baked a few months later i finished the drawing by experimenting with different techniques i planned to apply in a "serious" project.
Image
pencil, pencil crayon, oil pastel crayons and watercolors

i found a white and brown pastel pencil crayon and tried them out by sketching my make up mirror.
(the best part for me is i didnt have my mirror near by while i was drawing it. but it still ended up being actual size....except near the handle end) :drink:
Image


unfinished sketch a Buddha in my room. frankly it got boring
Image

the corporate joker. a quick oil pastel
Image


self portrait. this one took a long time to do. there is a lot of detail in the colors you cant see here :(
Image

i got soooo into blending markers and watercolor while doing this. i do it all the time now.
Image

Image

Great work. I personally can't draw worth a damn, but my girlfriend always shocks me.

I have the handwriting of a retarded kindergartener. I can barely stay in the lines in a colouring book. :(

I swear I've seen that first one before, but maybe it's just the similarity in style to some of the ones on the previous page. And I feel like you've posted the skull before but maybe it's just because I've been seeing your avatar lately, but even reading "this is currently my avatar" gave me some seriously wicked deja vu.



Of course after typing this I realized you've posted these to facebook weeks ago, d'oh

Hey we're supposed to be commenting about Abby's art guys....

I really dig the "head shots" zombie and the mandala. The skull is kind of weird....I think it's the overbite and he has a few too many teeth.

Also I really like the Buddha's facial expression haha

I really like the skull in an avatar sized picture, but once it gets bigger, it looks a little too happily creepy. I'm not sure why, but I also really like that girl with the flower on her right breast. It's closer to realistic, but has just enough altered reality to it that it takes away from the seriousness of it and lets you focus on the bright flower that stands out.

The watercolor one with the rings around it is mysterious... to relate it to anything, it almost reminds me of the rubber man from American Horror Story. It's just there... but it's powerful and has an outstanding aura around it. Good job Abby, I like most of your work for various reasons, keep practicing and trying different methods. Try to keep away from doing the same styles of work even though that doesn't seem much of a problem for you.

two freshly completed art projects

done in the same style ive been playing around with for awhile. i was kinda inspired by native American art work. as well as Mexican sugar skulls
Image


Image
i used a different drawing surface for this one. instead of just my sketch book i used pressed board. the oil paint wont dry properly unless its on a treated surface.
FYI the oil paint i used was real cheap, and i didnt have oil to mix with it and smooth out the constancy. AND i mostly used a pallet knife. just setting some of the lines and adding finer details with oil pastel crayons

a quick thought on an artists theory.

when i take a step back and look at my drawings a part of me is appalled at the lack of symmetry in what should "realistically" be more symmetrical. and i kick myself for not taking the time to use a ruler and make sure everything gets "perfect". so i will practice that method of drawing, and end up with odd flat sketches. even though these works are more technically perfect they lack the energy and vibrancy of my free hand stuff.

when it comes to art that connection with energy is what makes you want to keep experiencing it.

the trick is to get that feeling into everything i do. the reality is the only way to make that happen is to keep creating.

i worked really hard getting the texture of yarn into the oil pastel. it looked really cool until the weight of my sketch book smudged it all up.
ive been thinking of buying a sealer. to stop this sort of thing from happening (it happens a lot)
