My journey into being a professional artist has been a huge success!
Thanks to my job and my wonderful clients I’m able to travel wherever I want taking everything I need with me on my laptop.
I’ve spent the last three months traveling around Greece across islands, cities and mountains. My plan now is to go back home to England for a month or so to catch some of the winter, then spend another three months exploring Croatia. I also have the time to start expanding not just my lifestyle, but also new creative endevours! Stay tuned over the next few months.
Thank you for supporting me and my art over the last few years!
I love this! So much attention to detail and mostly things don’t feel too perfectly placed. If anything, the bed, the stand next to it, and the fridge could be tweaked just slightly, maybe not to the same extreme as the couches, and the chairs, but with that same idea of not being ‘perfectly’ placed. Maybe even a very slight 1 or 2 degree tilt on the mirror and picture frames too. And the plates a little too evenly stacked compared to the mess in other parts, but on the whole, very solid piece! I love how this feels like a place that is in use and not just a “staged” set.
Thank you so much for your comments and beefy reply! This means a lot to me. I actually really agree with you. When you’re looking into it the perfect placement of some of the larger objects throws the feel of “lived in” that I was going for, out of kilter. These are such good ideas with the plates and frames too! I was limiting myself to a really tight deadline on this to be finished for my birthday so I’m really happy I managed to achieve what I did in such short of a time frame. It was very hard because a scene like this… I would happily work on for much longer than reasonable. These are wonderful suggestions and I’ll definitely take that on board in the next piece similar to this I do. Thank you very much!
Only reason I pointed out those things (there’s one or two others right up against a wall too, now that I look at it again) was mainly because of the numerous other objects that were all off kilter that made the other things stand out. And the plates thing is something that is quite often overlooked when people are doing a scene and it’s super easy to see when they’re perfectly aligned… even in a staged setting, they’d never be that perfectly straightly aligned. (Working in a kitchen, I see stacks of plates and bowls all the time, so I really notice when they’re too perfectly aligned.)
With the things against a wall… you can probably get away with a closer alignment… only a few degrees change can help.
I featured you on BlenderNation, have a great weekend!
