We’re getting there. Slowly but surely……

dsc_0359.jpgIt might not look like a lot has been colored in compared to the last update. The reason why. The smaller the shapes the more detail. The more detail the more focus. I’m attempting my best to match colors that are “suppose” to go together.

There are no rules in art so I guess it doesn’t even matter. Still, need to attempt your best though.

Lots of purples, pinks, and yellowish colors have been added. In the left-hand corner of the picture. Not sure why I’m mentioning this, just am. Some individuals might not see the differences.

I never want to rush my drawings. That will ruin the process and intention of art. This drawing Is taking longer than some of the others. The last drawing I completed took me a bit longer too.

This drawing has a lot of detail and color in it. The size is quite large as well. In the end, all of this is worth it to me. I rather spend mass amounts of energy on one piece than create a bunch of “average” or “okay” pieces of art.

The color scheme on this is “different” as well. Having fun with the process. Lots of little pieces left to color in. One long adventure.

You can’t just grab any random color and fill any shape. It’s much more than that. Some people will understand.

I guess I’m more of a quality than a quantity person, hahaha. More is not always the best option to choose. Focus and delicate work similar to a ninja at work, hahaha.

Become slow and steady or be fast, then crash. A peaceful flow or a chaotic flow with many crashes and burns.

    • hi Claudia ! i ‘m so proud to confirm i found it at the very beginning !
      actually, as soon as the primary sketch was totally done …!! i told about Ronald Mc D or A .Einstein
      This is the first time i can identify the right model in first stage , with the grid of shapes and just before Brandon started to lay on the colours …
      hahaha chaotic shapes gives ‘genius’ potentialities …
      i love this opportunity to dream and share our imaginations …
      Brandon is brilliant AND SKILLED in his art . . . I JUST wonder in which way , our suggestions could influence him ? IF Any ?

      • There is nothing more magical than two people riding the same creative train side by side! I used to have a great friend who strolled down the creative path with me and it was wonderful. She has since gone her own way, but I still carry her inspiration with me. But Iโ€™m a little slower than you…I only caught on today! I canโ€™t wait to see the end product!

      • Very true, hahaha!

        I see, that’s good. Make sure to keep being creative and using your imagination. It keeps you sane, hahaha.

        I feel quite slow. Who knows hahaha. I’ve always been slow with everything. In full focus hahaha. That my “excuse.”

        Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Why is this turning to be “Who guesses right” competition?

        This is art and it is what your mind thinks it is. Everybody is correct. No one can be wrong when it comes to art as it is shaped by our soul. It is not Mathematics.

        I had started noticing this blog since the octopus drawing and yes I have been guessing all the drawings in the first stage itself. I will never say my guesses were correct. I will say that yes, my thought matched with artist Brandon.

        Please enjoy the art. It is not a place to check your “genius”. To check that I can give you difficult problems to solve or you can create your own art and yourself experience the ‘genius’ you need to create it.

        Art is a talent that unfolds at the right command and defines you. Please leave it to the artist how he wants to unfold it.

        I think we need to appreciate the diversity of our thoughts and relish on the beauty of the art.

      • I Can understand your point for the artistic part and sorry for challenging your own creative or imaginative abilities … i really don’t intend to compete in anything with you . i’m not a jealous person AND I ‘m glad for your thoughts to match with Brandon’s MOOD AND INSPIRATION …
        JUST RECALL you himself asks us to tell our guess if you follow him , you can relate to his way of interacting …
        On the other hand , i don’t catch your critical way on my comment when i just expressed my satisfaction to be tuned in the same inspiration and guess the final drawing before the end … wh

      • Nope. I didnot say anything about competing with you. I have already said that it’s not a competition and I don’t say my guesses to be ” correct “.

        Nope. I didn’t say anything about “jealous”. Please don’t get me so wrong, dear.

        Also, I have already said that it’s a beautiful experience to guess and share our thoughts. I do so too. I just wanted to say that you need not be “proud to confirm” for any “right” guess. Everyone’s right here.

        Let’s be satisfied to cite the variety of our thoughts instead of wanting to guess the final drawing. Let’s be satisfied with the art, share our own thoughts and guesses.

        Moreover, there is nothing like “final” drawing. Any last moment changes can create a completely different drawing. So, why are you so concerned about the “final” thing ,dear.

        Why do you think artist Brandon takes shots of his progress rather than the finished drawing?

        It’s because what we appreciate more is the process of creating art and not only the finished form, rather the form where he is satisfied and hence stops.

        Hope you have a nice day, friend. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜€

      • thank you for these precisions loyal friend ! i apology for my misunderstanding possibly perceived like being rude sometimes but the reason could be my French native speaking situation .
        I didn’t perceive exactly what you meant the first time … you were more explicit this one and i confirm that i agree with your way of seeing things …. actually this is what i meant but couldn’t tell with such details as you did …FOR THE MAIN THING , i ‘m ok with the pleasure to follow a process , like in a life’s journey , rather than focusing on the FINAL results only … this is why i believe we can share Brandon’s way to create and express his skills in art … STEP by step , trusting day by day inspiration and mood … relying on life ‘s energy, positiveness and fully enjoying momentness fits to this plan …
        thankx to your free mind i guess we can find friendly agreement … ๐Ÿ˜‰ much love

        One day death will take us all.

        You might as well live in love and positivity.

        Appreciate the moment for what it’s.

        The art is a reflection of everything within me.

        An energy I feel put onto the paper.

  1. fantastic new production dear Brandon !
    very inspiring words confirming the best side of patience and your loyalty , i mean i feel this concern about your respect for what you do and love , without caring time or other kind of artificial pressure ….
    loyalty is important in relationship but it starts with oneself first .
    It’s so beautiful to ally your wisdom about how applying freedom ( i love to share this mood as well ) in the creative process and your great maturity to dare expose yourself , both by freeing yourself with words and these talentful drawing art creations …
    i love to know you a little more with time, as far as you keep on this stunning equilibrium to be the best in each step to make your evolving millenial’s lifestyle a fruitful adventure . .
    ALL the best to come …THANKx for being who you are MY FRIEND . I ‘m sure your talent will find its course to some source of incomes where you ‘ll be comfortable to benefit ! just look forward …
    Push the dream ahead . much love

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Patience is everything. Love is needed as well.

      True. Love thyself first.

      Yes. Being an artist you literally throw yourself out there into the world. The people will know a lot about me compared to others. I find it weird but it’s okay hahaha. I’m comfortable. I know many won’t agree and others will. I’ll contine being me.

      Hahaha I like the way you said that. Fruitful adventure, I can agree with that.

      Thank you, I appreciate all your concerns and words. I’m happy you can accept me for me.

      Yes, I have opportunities left and right. My intuition will guide me throughout this adventure. The soul knows correct from incorrect.

      One day something will happen. Just can’t give up.

      Yes, for sure.

      Thank you!

      Much love.

  2. This is absolutely insane! I am the same exact way when it comes to my art – I take it slow (sometimes TOO slow, I feel) but in reality that’s not a bad thing. Precision and quality is key! Awesome job so far.

  3. I've been coloring this for the past few hours. As we narrow down to fewer shapes. Deciding what colors to use is a bit easier you can say. Still challenging, not attempting to stress it. Similar to how I always say. You just have to take it easy and continue on. Eventually one moment you'll reach the "end" or where you wish to be. It will just take time. I thought of this weird thought I shouldn't be thinking about while drawing. Because we're drawing and simply not working. Having fun is the main intention of the process. Okay, so if you look at this drawing. It's as if this drawing is a race of some sort. At one point there was nothing but a blank sheet. Now a sketch of something. Color has been added as well. As I'm coloring this I imagine an overview of a race or pathway. When I color the "last" shape. Technically the drawing is "finished." Passed the finish line. Similar to a race and once the last piece is colored in the race is over. This is quite an awful way to look at it. The complete opposite thoughts should be happening in my mind. In my perspective, the race within the art can never be "finished." There's is no last piece to add. You can have an endless piece of art or pathway. It never ends, we only think it does. It would be ridiculous to do that though. Create a piece of art forever and never stop. Art will drive you crazy if you don't put the pencil or colors down. Enough has to be enough sometimes. This drawing is comparable to life. Life keeps on going and is very rushed. All you have to do is pick yourself up when the negative moments occur. Make sure to relax and to not to overwork yourself too much. Keep a smile on your face and just be happy. Same with the process of creating art. Don't "make" or "force" anything. Just let it happen. I can use my art in comparison to mostly anything. This is an example I thought of. #abstract #abstractart #art #artist #artwork #colors #detail #doodle #drawing #geometry #multimedia #pattern #popart #prismacolor #sketch

    Concept being picture changes / puzzle

    If you wish to pursue this idea obviously itโ€™s no longerโ€™newโ€™. But it isnโ€™t common either.

    Lenticular lenses arenโ€™t particularly expensive nor is the composited pictures on glossy! But you will not achieve salable work without paying your printer house to produce a die-cutter. So if you pursue the thought you can upsell some art – I happen to like the above idea or Iโ€™d not offer it – cool or if as i see 20 this in or trying higher ed. Unlikely to be rich, then consider work at a shop requiring use of a die cutter thus tools or services to have one created inexpensively. And consider what most of us canโ€™t! A short run project to enjoy more profitably your art.

    Hopefully you know something of papers by now ! ;). But card stock and substrates

    Die cut
    Cost moderated to allow you quick cash product turn around thus little to no cash outlay past production set up !

    Voila!

    • I’m thinking I understand what you’re saying.

      I can agree but then also not. Music could be “bad” but at the same time still “good.” It works for all art.

      Maybe the music sounds sloppy or out of tune. It’s still noise or music though.

      I think you’re saying music can only sound one way or its not music? Like you have to follow what the sheet says or it will not be music.
