Default How to Art When You're Bad at Art

How to ART When You're Bad at ART; A List Compiled by an Amateur


Hello and welcome to my portfolio thread. Let me make very clear that all I claim to be is someone who enjoys mucking around creatively. I lay no claim to being good at anything. In fact, I'm sort of shy about sharing because it's just 'goofing around' for me, but some very lovely SSers have shown an interest and encouragement and, honestly, I can't take their bullying anymore. (Looking at you, Kath).

I'll be sharing some things I've been working on, and also some tips on how to flex creatively when you have absolutely no skill to do so.

So. Be kind, and be sure to visit often and wave at me, because I love to wave back.

Lesson 1: When in doubt, fill it out.


SPOILER!!: Doodles


No, for real. Some people are minimalists. I love minimalism. I do not love it in doodle-art (sometimes known as zen tangles). This is obviously taken from a page in a notebook, completed over time in meetings and over phone calls. When I didn't like what I was doing or didn't think something looked the way I wanted, I just hid it amid a bunch of other details.

Also, in some mediums, just paint over the darn thing. Erasers are good too.

But I prefer a hundred things to see to one poorly executed one.

I literally never knew that these things had a name...so I learned something. Love this when you first showed it to me and still love it now. I've personally never done one of these myself but...I'm curious now!

Firstly, I LOVE that you have a portfolio thread! THIS IS SO EXCITING!

And secondly, that zentangle design is so beautiful holy crap! I'm in awe of that level of detailing. Honestly, it just makes me want to keep looking at it forever

Also, I agree with Tegan about making it a printable colouring sheet

I think it's one of those terms that can be loosely used for any doodling you may want to do on a mass scale. You should doodle some doodles with your fancy new markers!

Hello, small and lovely one. Your kind words are very much appreciated. Please do stare all day and tell me what things you discover in the depths of the doodleydoos.

You should do them again! It's such a good way to detach from your brain.

KITA HI SO NICE TO SEE YOU. It's lovely to have you visit. Thanks for your kind words. I've taken the hint from you and Tegan... we'll see what I can do.

Lesson 2: Materials matter.


SPOILER!!: Doodle2


I love a good ink pen. Good roll, smooth ink distribution without being overly wet, and NOT scratchy. You can tell from this doodle where I couldn't find one of my 'good' pens and had to use a regular ink pen a few times - ick. It makes all the difference, doesn't it?

I'm still in search of the perfect pen, so if you have some suggestions for me... I'm all ears! (Eyes? Fingers?)

You are ridiculous. OBVIOUSLY you have talent. You're the one and only Ern-la, the wizard behind the curtain!

Also, my faaaaaaaaavorite pens are Papermate Flair. I love all the colors they come in, and I also like them in black. I guard them with my life and buy them off amazon at the start of every school year.

Lesson 3: Materials don't matter.


SPOILER!!: The book is opened




In a direct contradiction to HOW MUCH I LOVE A GOOD PEN, I want to talk about my art journal (also I'm so shy about sharing these so like... be nice). I've been seeing those repurposed book art journals on Pinterest, and it looked like FUN. When I discovered a stack of old Reader's Digest condensed books with pretty covers and boring stories, it seemed like serendipity. And then nothing nothing nothing, because I wanted to read every tutorial and find the right supplies and prep the book and...

In spite of those tutorials and buying gesso and prepping pages (ugh, so time consuming), I didn't start to enjoy the process until I stopped trying to find the right materials and the right inspiration and just have fun. Plus I got to destroy a LOT of magazines in the process.

I KNOW, RIGHT? It's a paraphrase from a Nikita Gill poem that I love.

"We have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins, carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains. 93 percent stardust, with souls made of flames, we are all just stars that have people names."

Hey, fren! You're so good at encouraging and kind words. I appreciate you so much <3

The tips and tricks are my lessons in this THREAD, silly. Which is mostly just 'use what you've got' and 'don't let your own brain intimidate you'. I'm not sure if that's what you mean, but it's what helps me.

Lesson 4: I actually just want to show you this thing.


SPOILER!!: Cross stitch


Okay, hi, I learned to cross stitch when I was a baby because my mom and grandma did it... and then relearned a year or so ago when my friend got me a cross stitch kit. I'm super proud of this little guy, because I found the pattern for free on Pinterest and made it using floss I already had... so it felt like a perfect quarantine project. Anyway, please enjoy this commercial break.
