art block sketches

anonymous asked:

Woowwwwwwwww I LOVE your art!!!!!!! Also I just wanted to ask what do you do when you have artist block? I have been stuck for the past 2 weeks );

Thanks! Oh man, art blocks are the worst. I think I’m finally getting over mine. In the past I used to take breaks from drawing. Lately, whenever I’ve had art blocks I continue to sketch and doodle. Even if I don’t like the drawing at the time, at least I’m working on improving and I still get some drawing time. Everyone goes through art blocks and everyone handles them differently. I wish you the best of luck! My advice would be to just keep drawing. :)

In case you don't know what to draw

- Your favorite character with clothes they would never wear.
- A crack ship.
- Dance poses. Breakdance poses are always better.
- Backgrounds!!!!
- Think about a feeling/emotion, try drawing something that would make you feel that way.
- A magical/mythical creature.
- Modern day AUs are always fun.
- What would your fave’s room look like?
- Expressions! Extra points for making them exaggerated.
- Flying objects. Any kind of objects. Put some wings on a refrigerator.
- Your outfit!
- Design a mermaid. Or a sprite.

au where arthur is some kind of forest spirit and alfred is a prince

not sure where this is going but i like it

Will: “See, I told you this would happen. Now my coffee is cold.”

Nico: -chews cocoa straw- …worth it.

They totally didn’t just finish making out behind the Apollo cabin.

I imagine Will Solace would definitely not be a morning person (or an Autumn/Winter person). Nico on the other hand, it seems like he’s always awake, and not too affected by the cool weather. Will tried introducing Nico to coffee (unhealthy, but helpful he says.) when they started dating, but Nico found it to be disgusting. He prefers hot cocoa (with a straw).

Looks like staying up too late to draw bakushimanari comics that make sense only to me is becoming an ill advised habit

FRESHUARY 2: SWAP - Make an alternate Fresh! Underfell, Outertale, etc…

….ORRRR A LUCIDIA AU AYYY I couldn’t think of anything to put him in, but… Since he’s mostly a Lucidia skellie now, I thought it’d be nice to put him in one of those aus! ……the comic hasn’t even started and there’s already an au oh my god

Ok so. AU where the fresh parasites are the reapers instead!
…..Yeah that’s it. Just. Reaper Fresh. Yep.

That’s a ribbon at the end of his scythe- Impractical but it’d look cool when he’s swinging it around I guess??

Despite Grimmjow being one of my favorite anime characters ever, I’ve only drawn him about once or twice before, and that was years ago.  Now I remember why I didn’t draw him more often.  His fricking hair was a pain.  But ignoring than that, it’s hard for me to choose between ships

Ten Art Journal Prompts to Improve Your Creativity.

These journal prompts are designed to train your creative ability. Art is a holistic study with several components. Each of these journal prompts isolates one of those components and explores its contributions to creative development.

1) Cut a photo out of a magazine and paste it on one side of your journal. On the other side, replicate the picture. (can be stylised) then, using sharpie or other bold marker, alter the original picture so it better looks like your drawing. This prompt highlights differences between reality and the way you interpret it.

2) String together nonsense words so that they roll perfectly off the tongue. Think ‘incoherent poetry’. Pay attention to syllables and rhyme. This prompt focuses on what language sounds like rather than what it communicates.

3) Dip various objects in paint and lay them across the page. Elastic bands, erasers, paper clips, combs, etc. This prompt experiments with texture and the effect of mixed media.

4) Draw a self portrait (from a mirror or photograph), and then choose a feature on your face. Draw another portrait from a different angle or with a different expression over top of the original that uses the original drawing of that feature. Can be done with animals if you’re not good at drawing people. This prompt highlights angle, pose, and position.

5) On black paper, use white pencil or pastel to draw something using only highlights. Paste this into your journal. On the opposite white page, draw the same thing using only shadows. This prompt pays attention to contrast and light source.

6) Create a list of the colours you assign to letters, numbers, musical notes, and people. Draw a few of these things in the colours you’ve listed. This prompt draws connections between how something looks and how something feels.

7) Swipe wet paint across the bottom of the page, turn the book and let the paint drip down the page. When it dries, create an image using the lines created by the drips. For example, the lines could be flower stems, could support words or letters, could be fence posts or tree trunks or telephone poles. This prompt asks you to incorporate an obstacle into your work.

8) Create a drawing using a felt-tip pen. Then, using water and a small paint brush, smear the lines of your drawing so that the shading becomes more like water-color. This prompt transforms the original media and requires pre-planning.

9) Using acrylic, paint something using only vertical lines. All forms in this painting must be suggested only by colour, as no outlines are permitted. This prompt teaches the importance colour when representing a form.

10) Cut words out of an old dictionary and paste them into your journal. Then, devise ways in which those words may be used that are not listed in the dictionary. Verbs are easiest. For example, the word 'stumble’ might be used to describe paper fluttering in the wind, or puffins in flight, despite not being defined in the dictionary that way. Write your new sentences beside the words.

To break in my new journal, I will be doing all of these prompts this week. If you do them, tag them 'artjournalprompts’ and I’ll reblog your work!
