anonymous asked:

How did you get so good at drawing? Did you take classes or are you self-taught?

Aw! Anon haha thank you, well I was mostly self taught, except for my anatomy studies, I used to pick some of my favourite artists and try to imitate their style, and so I realized I had terrible anatomy.

It actually became my favourite thing, anatomy I mean, I really enjoyed to draw bodies, a year or so ago, my uncle gave me a spot in an anatomy art class at the school he reaches art at. And that also made me get even better with anatomy. When I entered college classes w models were always my fav.

My style developed from scratch after I went pass from my anime years, since I never really fully liked anime that looked cute honestly, my interests went more to a more badass/black ink shades kinda style, and well my favourite artist was a huge inspiration for me as well, you could say trying to accomplish something close to his style helped me develop my own style!

I am honestly happy with the style I have.


I hope it helps a bunch of you out there :)

If you are smart, and you want it bad enough, you can learn to do anything.

These incredibly creepy transformations feature Stephanie Fernandez in makeup she’s applied herself. The work is amazing, but even more so when you realize she’s just 18 years old and is self-taught. She’s a freelance makeup artist for now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Hollywood snapped her up someday.

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen (1986) “is a self-taught artist whose creative production revolves around classic figurative painting, presented in a contemporary manner. Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of surrealism. His focus on atmospheres rather than narratives and realism leaves his painting open for many interpretations.”



Self-taught photographer Zeren Badar describes his latest photography project, Accident Series as “rich, conceptual, sensual and anti-formal” turning “pre-existing works of art into Duchampian ready-mades”. Indeed he is exploring his Dada influences with a peculiar combination of photography, painting & collage. These collages are made with found objects, covered in food, laced in strong shadows and layering effects to give a three dimensional sense to his work.

Badar hopes these copies of old masters paintings will evoke the viewers memory. The artist explains, “By using unexpected juxtapositions of objects, I try to create ambiguity and pull viewers attention deeper into my photographs.”

*Zeren Badar is a self-taught photographer who lives currently in NYC. He is originally from Turkey. He is obsessed with art. He enjoys long walks all around Manhattan and take long breaks at art shows.
