I’ll admit it’s not the best clay work but you gotta give me some credit for being a first timer plus I’m working around a toddler who wants to put her hands on everything even though she has her own sketch pad with crayons and a load of toys.
You can see an earlier post of the Goldfish Zombie here: Zombie Kitty Project: Goldfish Zombie
I enjoyed making it. There will be more zombies to come. You can see my original here: Zombie Kitty
Stay tuned for more zombie goodness. I’m eager to tell the story but of course I must iron out the plot and details. Enjoy and thanks for your support. 😸😸😸
Things aren’t going to be perfect right away. We all want it to be perfect on our first try, whether you’re drawing, painting, writing, etc.
This is going to be a charcoal drawing of my friend and her fiance. As you can see it doesn’t look like much right now; it could be me and a character from Doug. All art pieces have to start somewhere; they’re all just lines and shading/ coloring when you think about it.
These are a couple of my first timers as far as oil pastels go. As you can see, I used them like crayons; technically there’s no right or wrong way to do art, but oil pastels weren’t really meant to be used like crayons.
After trial and error, I was better able to use the oil pastels in this drawing.
Remember, you can’t expect the first line, the first stroke, the first word, first whatever you’re doing to be the same as your outcome of the piece you’re working on. Just work through it and see where it takes you. That’s the beauty of art.
This is all meaningless
Everything’s all pointless
So why live in stress?
I should be happy
But it seems far from me
To live in harmony
I choose this disease
Because I didn’t seize
My life’s at stake
When I chose to take
The money I’d make
Life is so much more
Than just an awful chore
And I can’t ignore
How I spend my time
For just a dime
It should be a crime
To not live fully
Or do things happily
This will change, hopefully.
What you did is unforgivable
I can’t believe you’re this horrible
You seemed so genuine
But you’re not a friend
You’re ugly on the inside
Because you have too much pride
To own up to your mistakes
And do whatever it takes
To make things right
Instead you wanted to fight
And ignore everything you’ve done
Because you wanted to have fun
You’re an awful human being
Who only intended to sting
What you left behind
For a temporary bind
See you in the next life
When you don’t have so much strife
I came up with some pervy, little dude by the name of “Dave.” He’s a metalcore kinda guy who’s in a band and doesn’t like school much. I was supposed to draw more of him, years ago and make some comics but I just let time slip through my fingers. I should’ve done it back then when I didn’t have a monster of a daughter to get into everything I’m doing. 😝 Oh well here it is now.
Demi, or “D,” is another character I came up with around eight years ago, too. She is in Dave’s band and you’ll see more of her.. eventually.
Here are all the members to the band. You’ll be seeing more of them in the future. 😄
This poem is about one of the creepy stories my mom told me from her youth. She told me she and her older brothers were in their room when her brother Larry (may he rest in peace) was looking out the window and saw their brother Martin. Larry then proceeded to ask Martin what he was doing outside but Martin, who was sitting on the bed, fixing a radio responded “what are you talking about?” All of my mom’s brothers looked outside to see a Martin lookalike but only with sharp teeth and soulless eyes. It was compared to a “duende.”
I really enjoy drawing on black paper. I do admit that when I’m focusing on coloring, it’ll mess with my eyes just a little bit but I’m really loving how it all comes out. Be on the lookout for more. Thanks for your support. 😊
I have a thing for drawing eyes…
My bratty toddler finally allowed me to finish this Luigi close up but only after I let her use some of my colored pencils for hey scribbles, which I wasn’t too crazy about.
And of course I’m going to share my first completed drawing on black paper.
I put some of Gizmo’s hats on both of them. 😹 They look just as cute. ❤️
Half-Pipe with mini Skateboard Hat for a Cat
Cat with colorful Pom Pom Hat
Cat with a Red and White Hat with Pom Pom
I think Token and Bon can both rock Gizmo’s hats! They deserve their own! 😸
I use not so favorable moments in my life to create art. Make the most out of a “bad” situation.
