Sofa's Art Orifice (IMAGE HEAVY)

Recommended Posts

I don't art an awful lot nowadays, between 12-hour class days and a crippling addiction to Avorion, but here are some examples of things I do. The following are in reverse-chronological order (more recent stuff at the top).

 

The rest of my stuff can be found here.

I really envy your talent here, I can barely manage to draw cartoon animals and starship silhouettes

 

It's not talent, it's the result of me spending the better part of 20 years learning to do it. : P

And if you're envious of that, I can recommend hiring lots of naked people to pose in front of you so you can draw them with charcoal. Or at least a bowl of fruit.

I don't think I'd have the patience to draw what I hate so much, just so I can learn to break and bend it properly :P

 

It's a steep slope to climb with no plateau in sight, and your self esteem is getting hit in the face by rocks dislodged by those 2 miles above you, and so are they, even kicking themselves when they realize how much further they have to go, and then they get higher just to further realize how much they still have to learn.

That happens in every subject you ever choose to study in-depth.  Anyone who goes beyond the shallow end develops some level of Imposter Syndrome, even if they don't admit it.
