Been working on this for a few days using Blenders Grease Pencil tools. Believe it or not it’s a mock up for a phone cover I wanted to try to make.
It was fun to come up with and was taken from one of my nightly doodles.
I also got to teach myself how to make my own custom watercolor brushes in Blender, which I’m sure 50,000 youtubers are currently making into a tutorial, but I did it on my own and that felt great!
Art is a weird subject, and the path of an artist is also weird. Covid making it even weirder. I’m apart of a lot of artist and animation groups on FB and its almost like there is this collective desperation among artists in finding purpose for their work or to make enough of a living to have the time to make it. When most of them have just started. It’s been hard to watch and has even made me want to leave groups and not check news feeds. It seems everyday an artist is now pushing themselves in hopes of striking gold instead of enjoying the practice of making something. Becoming depressed by their peers instead of inspired. But the truth is, even when I had no money or apartment, I was still making comic books. I was still drawing everyday cause it made me feel better. And eventually I was lucky enough to incorporate those skills into a multitude of different jobs I’ve had through out my short career. A career that could end at any moment for any reason. I wish I could give the art community a collective hug, and the hope that if you just keep loving what you do and keep doing it, it will love you back.
If you like the design and want it for yourself you can get it on amazon!
