Calling all artists - Creative types - those wanting to level up their skills and fun!

 

(How do you generalize the totality, or even partial group of ART in one image?)

 

2013-03-05_19-03-51_312 (800x451).jpg

 

how many of you have made a goal to do something creative each day, each week, each month?
come join me here - 

(SIGN UP IS EASY - JUST PUT IN YOUR NAME - we are into the second box - so look for the light blue!)

 

My goal is to ART once each day.

Notice I said ART... not do art.

For me, art is a state of mind, a point of reference, the place my soul resides. 
I find my joy in my faith and my creativity - and my creativity is an expression of my faith, without being all preachy(I do alot of nature stuff).
I admire all sorts of art - and I'd like to encourage that, as we grow and level up.
This is where I am a nerd!

 

I'll post something 4x a week for me -
what will you post?

 

PLEASE FILL IN THE SIGNUP SHEET, and when I have your thread(battle or challenge) I'll put in the links of those threads that belong to us artists.
I'm going to do this for 6 weeks - but I may continue it if we enjoy ourselves!

~Christi

 

And, I decided to add some challenges - just to keep us motivated!

week 1 - do something for 15 minutes that is free flowing - free sketch, free music, free writing, scribble your next crossstitch ideas....sketch out your next home gym idea...get the idea?

week 2 - 

week 3 

week 4 -

week 5 - 

week 6 -

YAY! Hi! I am back! And I present to you with some of my snaps

I took them with my iPhone and they felt quite impromptu, I assure you.

So art is definitely part of this challenge for me. So I will post them there and here, getting more into the art side in this thread.

 

So here is a quick sketch (about 30 minutes) I did. I used some crappy markers that I need to use up. I have had them for 10+ years and never used them. They came in one of those all in one art sets. Its more of a study in color/value/etc than it is suppossed to be a finished work.

 

Reference is here http://www.hotflick.net/flicks/2009_It_s_Always_Sunny_in_Philadelphia__A_Very_Sunny_Christmas/009VSC_Charlie_Day_006.jpg

Im also trying to focus on making bold statements with my darks. Im still  not sure how I feel about this. I think I tried to get too detailed with it... Oh well its done now.

Hello all! I need to finish hubby's Christmas gift and hopefully do some others, so I'm back again . I've only done mini paintings so far so this will be my first full size (9x12). I've also been encouraged to get back into my photography so we'll see how that goes.

SugarRay signing up!

 

I used to do art all the time, but as the years have went by, I dropped it.

Not anymore!

 

I am going to be designing tattoos in the course of this challenge I want one to be based around a monkey (because monkeys are great) and the other to be based around a wolverine (because, much like the wolverine, I am short, stocky, brown and am pretty grumpy most of the time).

However, I hope to do more art.. for the sake of doing art, of course!

 

Here's what I'm working on at the moment:

Nowhere near finished, but I'm workin' on it!

 

Bonus points if you recognize which anime character that is. =D

I am humbled by this group! These drawings. ..the photos. ..i will need to up my game! ;-)

Cn3wton...at the portrait class I just took, she talked alot about working on your darks. Map those and the lights. ..then the rest is gravy. I love what you did! Awesome!

SugarRay...i recognize the style, but (whispering) I don't know anime!

I don't know the great artists, well, except degas and monet...never went to art school!

I have 5-7 spartan race portraits I want to do this challenge, gifts for my friends that ate running the rave this weekend in boston. ..fenway park.

I've never done portraits...

But I also have never been known to take the slow path. My idea to teach myself piano was to open a hymnal and try to play the first hymn. ..all four parts. I didn't totally fail...but it wasn't pretty!

The first part off my art challenge is to get photos of these people!

I'm also doing nanowrimo this year. I'm writing a book that is about my struggles illustrated by a painting I did as therapy.

I need to find a small enough photo to share that painting.

Also. ..if that wasn't enough during this time of ARTing for holidays...i need to create some art to sell to help me go to the Phillipines to celebrate the graduation of several children we have sponsored.

Sigh...i should give up on sleep!

So I am done for the night with a drawing for the gallery. I would appreciate it if you guys would share your thoughts and feelings of the piece. It's suppossed to be vague enough that you can see anyone in the figures. And perhaps make you recall a fond memory.

 

Heres the process.

And the "final" piece.

As you see I havent signed it yet. I don't like to finish a work in one sitting. I am going to show it to some people tomorrow and get their opinions. And having a fresh eyes on it in the morning always helps. Look forward to hearing what you all think!

Signed up! For this challenge I want to make at least 3 new paintings. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but my life is pretty busy right now and I wanted to give myself a realistic goal.

Hey all,

I'm joining as a musician more than visual artist, although I do some of both. I've been really bad about picking up my fiddle lately, and I want to change that: it's my main instrument. My goal for the challenge is to learn to sing while accompanying myself on the fiddle.

 

I'm also trying to lose weight, and get back to running while recovering from an ankle injury. Besides running, I love hiking, and I do a moderate amount of yoga. My favorite is to go trail running, but that's probably out until spring, because my ankle just can't handle the uneven terrain, and it's probably going to be iced over before I heal that much.
