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.

Hi ern

The Rublic of Congo, Costa Rica, and Cote DíIvoire ones all look so nice together - like they belong in a set. I think it must be because of the similar colors they all have with the neutral shades ! and if you look at the blues it goes from pigmented to lighter to lightest, which is also very neato.

ALSO! Iím trying to keep the weeping at a minimum because you said it makes the colors run. iím not good at directions, BUT I'M TRYING, SEEEEEE

re: the latest trio, Itís so cool to see how your style has changed throughout this project. Looking at the Croatia painting and then the ones below it ooooo - which style do you prefer?

HI FRIEND THANKS FOR SAVING ME FROM TRIPLE POSTING. You can weep if you want but please use a hankie, that's it. <3<3

As for the change in styles... I like the use of ink but I appreciate the control and technique needed to use paint for shading and texture. What do you like?


Czech Republic, Denmark, Djibouti

SPOILER!!: Czech Republic


SPOILER!!: Denmark

Sorry about the weird lighting on these three... they're a little washed out for some reason.

That weird blob on the first one is a BOAT where the shading got away from me. Sorry about that.

And my mom keeps asking me how you get into the house in East Timor, so if you know, just ring me.

I like ALL of the things, but I especially like the shadows you did in the East Timor one and the Dominican Republic one.

I have another question !!! when you do greenery (like in East Timor, for example), do you do the ink first or the paint first?

Hi, friend! I think my shading is coming along nicely!

As for greenery, I usually do put in the ink first, just to draw the general shape so I don't accidentally put down the wrong color in the wrong place. Sometimes I go back and add details in ink.

Hi, friend! The pyramid picture feels so SIMPLE to me, too, especially compared to some of the complicated buildings I've tried, but I like the colors and shading so much. So that's to say that I agree with you!

You and Roro both have said this now <3 About the postcards. The thing.

ANYWAY. YOU AND YOUR DOMES. I already mentioned that I thought I should do some sort of DOME RETROSPECTIVE at the end of this to show my progress over time. This is a nice one, I agree.

No good trees in this one, sorry.

Hey, friends! Thanks for bearing with me while I dump artwork in this thread. I know it's a LOT, and it means the world that I can show it to people here. I'd like to promise that it DOES get better, but it's likely only that way to me!

I’M HERE !!!!! Okay the perspective (is it called perspective???) in the EQ one is so well done, ern !!! Architectural beauty you’ve produced right there, I have no idea how you did that but I am very impressed ok? I also love how colorful the Eritrea one is. You make it so hard to pick favorites

TREES IN FIJI omg ;__; i love them. look at those happy palms waving in the wind. And FRANCE was a lovely surprise! I like the blend of the colors in this one especially - once again i am weeping
