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.

i fully intended to come here and pick FAVORITES but then every time i opened a new spoiler box, it became my new favorite and now i cannot pick favorites. How. Very. Dare. You!!!!! I really how colorful the Leanon one is and the level of grand detail in the Kyrgyzstan one and the roof for the Laos one has me all sorts of staring in AWE. In conclusion i love everything. Always. Liechtenstein looks like a scene straight out of a magical cartoon and look at those steps in liberia!!!

How the heckle did you get Madagascar to look so???? perfect??? Iím??? I?? THE BLUES OF MALTA !!!! THE SKIES IN MEXICO!!! and the ground in mexico. i really like the ground in this one. THE MARSHALL ISLANDS GREENS.

once again, i am weeping and thereís nothing you can do to stop me!!

Henlo, weeping willow. Thank you so much for telling me the very specific things that you like. I love going back to see what you're talking about and enjoying those things again from your perspective. Like oh YEAH the roof and the stairs and the skies. The ground, though? the ground? You make me laugh, little bug.

Would you like me to draw you a place?

it was really pretty ground ok!!!!!

Also. Monaco. I don’t know how you do the things to make it look so 3d, but there’s so many good shapes and angles in this one. It makes my head spin just thinking about trying to attempt something like this. your skill. ugh. so good. I LOVE the colors in the Moldova one, especially the gray in the background, it’s very pleasing to the eye, ok!!! The cotton candy rainbow skies of Myanmar are makin’ my heart real happy, as are all the GREEENS and the vibrant roofs in mozambique. the pink buildings in morocco are BEAUTIFUL and i’ve been staring at montenegro for a good 4 minutes just admiring the reflections in the water.

Shapes and angles and SHADING are the big keys. Sometimes when it seems like nothing will pull it together, adding shading makes it BETTER. Can't fix everything, but it helps a lot. It's so interesting to me the things you pick up on... a little bit of sky and happy trees. I don't know how you do that!

Ooh I LOVE the flowers. IDK what they are but they remind me of lupines which reminds me of a book. The colors are so pretty. I really like the green in the last one, especially the green spots next to the detailed stuff. They make me think of gems or something.

Ern Ern Ern !!!!! I love those lily pads in the Nepal scene. Everything about this one from the colors to the shakes to the scene itself is so serene and peaceful. I was also very blown away (maybe it was the windmill) (ha) (the jokes i have) by the Netherlands scene. The colors are so very vibrant and this painting has so much LIFE to it. I want to run in those flower fields, please.

I still do not know how to wrap my brain around how you do these intricate angles and perspectives, but my mind is absolutely all sorts of exploded over the shapes and angles and perspectives youíve got going on in Nigeria, NZ, and Nicaragua. I especially like the clouds of NZ and all the colors in Nicaragua.

The secret to shapes and angles is shading, I swear. I sometimes draw it and just feel UGH and then do the colors and it all falls into place.

OKAY I think you're going to like these ones. This is like 'the Ariana batch'.
