More uni group work!

Excuse me whilst I go raid the fruit basket in my kitchen now..

About time I did an FAQ?

My inbox right now is like a shaken can of coke and I’m afraid to open it… I have quite a few questions to answer and I’m mega sorry I don’t keep up with them that well! I’m so incredibly busy with uni and personal work. A lot of these questions I’ve already answered though so I’ll be putting together an FAQ for general questions sometime soon! I’ll also try n’ answer as many of the questions in my inbox in a bulk future post and personally.

So yeah these questions, they can be personal kind of background questions as well as art related questions. Answer to this or you can inbox me and I’ll create an FAQ/about page So basically guys…

is there anything you would like to ask me?

Much like my leaf/tree tutorial this is another crazy simple guide but it might help a few of you! I love to get a lot of thumbnail type ideas down first before I settle on something final so I like to use this quick method as a way of exploration, basic research into what I’m trying to achieve and a means of creating variety in my work (I hope!) On the flip-side I know a lot of people struggle with creating environments in general, this could be a good way to ease yourself into drawing them without getting too bogged down in details and technicalities, just blasting your ideas down onto a canvas!

Okay I&#8217;ve been trying to do one of these process gifs FOREVER, but I&#8217;ve been stupid each time and ended up not saving and losing all the screenshots ahahaa&#8230;
But anyway, Just demonstrating here that a.) I just jumped into this, hence the weird what-the-heck-am-I-doing start. I mean I usually plan, but sometimes it&#8217;s really nice to be spontaneous too! And b.) that painting landscape and scenery can be kinda like sculpting? You know, you start out messy and blocky, just building the main shapes in, then refine a little here and there and experiment with new shapes and adding, subtracting and moving things around constantly (PRO DESCRIPTION). I also play around with the hue-saturation tools and experiment with colours too, because sometimes I feel like some colours don&#8217;t feel right, I&#8217;m still learning a bunch so yeah, extra tools like that really help sometimes!
