Crazy color combination.

colors

When making art, you can’t think about real-life scenarios or anything in general. Besides art, If you think about anything else, you won’t enjoy making the art as much as you can.

I try to get in the “zone” that’s what I call it. It’s as if something is controlling me when I draw. It’s similar to a runners high.

I draw and it doesn’t stop, continuous until my hand cramps and I take a break. Fighting the cramps sometimes to finish the last pieces. A battle against the paper and the mind, hahaha. Only do I wish I could draw nonstop, sometimes it takes a lot of energy to motivate yourself.

Making art is a lot harder than people think, sure it might not make your hands dirty unless you’re using paint, hahaha. But the mind is worked out to the max.

I feel as if I get mind headaches from my art sometimes, it’s a lot to process. All the different colors and shapes.

An example you can see, I get bored in one area and end up all over the place on the drawing. Then there are times I’m slow and steady and stay in one area, it depends on the way I’m feeling that day.

I Always do my best to feel tension free when drawing. Don’t drag your hand across the paper, be light weighted.

With all the crazy colors you see, what’s in the image before your eyes?

Making art and writing keeps me sane in this “insane” world

Albert Einstein “insane” To do something the same way over and over and expect different results.

I look at art and it’s completely sane.

Every time I create it’s a new experience and not boring or the same. Clicks some life into my soul.

I look at the world and this so-called government and I think “insane”

Albert Einstein was totally correct.

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

Albert Einstein has another quote talking about how the imagination is the only thing to set you free. I totally agree with him on this one, without it, I’d feel like a prisoner locked up in this world.

“Imagination is everything. It Is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

The imagination is infinite and priceless remember to never lose your imagination in this “insane” world.

My imagination is the only thing keeping me alive and running.

Without It, I wouldn’t know what or who to be.

Thank you imagination for being there for me when no one else is.

You’re always there and never a nonsense.

We accept each other and make the most creative ideas you can think of.

Thank you imagination and have a great day!

When I sleep every night it’s rebooting my imagination for new ideas and thoughts.

Every moment and day is a new moment to create your life into a better one.

That “one” stupid or nonsensible idea you had, could possibly change the world to be insane to sane.

Don’t give up on your dreams and ideas, not everyone will understand you. The ones who do will come to you at the right moment.

But you and your imagination understand each other like no other.

I’ll never be breaking up with my imagination. I appreciate every moment my mind thinks and creates creative ideas.

If you were to enter my mind it would be full of fantasies, unrealistic thoughts, and adventures. It would be one crazy ride/adventure for you to enter.

I try my best to express what’s going on in my imagination. Many things are confusing within it. Like another language/dialect of some sort. So deep some don’t understand and will say I’m “insane” or judge.

But in reality, am I the insane one. Or are you the insane one for calling me insane.

It’s a game of pointing fingers and the talk of the ego.

We’re all insane. If you reckon, to not be insane. You’re probably are insane yourself.

Listen to the words you speak before you talk to others. You might hurt yourself and others similar to a war. The words you speak could be similar to gunshots and multiple injuries. Concluding to the same concept as war itself. In a different format.

Be aware of what you’re thinking before you think the first thought. Don’t just do unless you know what you’re doing.

Lose the self-worth and accept others for who they’re. All of our values end up to be equal at the end of the day. Sure, you might own a yacht or things people don’t, Or whatever you think is in your mind. But at the end of the day we all sleep, eat, and shit. The actions you do through the day create the life you choose and who you’re, not others peoples lives. Your life, the reality you live in.

The imagination is my best friend. I don’t feel sad or “depressed” saying this. I’m proud and happy we have the best relationship we can have.

I couldn’t imagine what I would do without you imagination

Not everything I think is released, but I try my best to explain the thoughts I have and continue to have.

I question why I have the thoughts I do or how I come up with them. What thoughts were I thinking to think these thoughts?

Life blows my mind it’s hard for me to understand anything. The simplest things. I look at a leaf or my finger and each has a “print” or identification.

But why, haha.

Why this, why what? I’m like a little kid, I have a question about everything.

After asking the question I’ll have another question after that question. It never ends, hahaha.

The infinite imagination, the ideas, and numbers never end.

Minor color update

23667165_1869611609761187_1564589047_n

Not the greatest update, but it’s something. Been quite busy this week. Sorry for the lame excuse, haha.

A few new colors added to the image to ponder the mind.

When making a color or deciding what color to use. It takes quite a long time, a slower process than sketching it.

Sketches are easier and go with a flow. When I sketch I’m going and going and sketching.

But when I color I’m pausing and looking at the drawing every few seconds. To figure out if the color I want to use is “correct” in my eyes. Or maybe to use a different color.

Didn’t spend as much time as I wanted to this week on the drawing, but I got a decent amount.

I want to enjoy the process or I don’t even feel like making art. To force it and make it a duty of some sort. That just makes no sense to me. Not every single moment of life I want to create, but I wish I could.

It’s in the moments where I have the most inspiration that I can’t draw, it always works like that with everything, hahaha.

When you want to do something you can’t. But when trying to do something you don’t even have the energy to attempt. It’s all sucked out of you.

If you learn how to mess and play around with your mind you can try your best to fight the resistance in a fun way. Don’t force anything or your true potential won’t shine. Just let it happen.

With the little update I have here, what do you see in the image?

Remember the answer is not given until the end, only little hints. Sorry if my hints are not the best, I try to give riddles and puns. Or tell you if I see what you see. It’s a weird way, but fun way for me to join the process.

It might be confusing to some at times. I act as if I’m not the artist and just a viewer myself.

Living in my everyday life, I don’t even feel like an artist or anything. I look in the mirror and just see a person standing there.

Just like everyone else. The same, all just a person. Living and breathing and that’s it, nothing else. Everyone is the same to me no matter the situation. We’re all one to me, no one is worth less than me or more. Just the same as everyone else. I look around and see a bunch of different version of “me”

Just had this thought at the moment of writing this, thought I would share it.

Thank you.

Vibrant and bright colors. (Color added to sketch.)

23549688_1862297810492567_120519143_n

Here’s how far I got tonight. Not feeling the best, have a cold. But that’s not an excuse.

It’s making me lag in progress, but progress is progress. The hours add up.

The colors in this drawing are a little crazy as you can see. Very vibrant and bright. eye-popping.

Don’t have the colors confuse you, remember the imagination. Any color combination is possible. I don’t have to follow the rules and make the image the correct colors.

That’s the freedom of art. You can do whatever you want with zero rules.

Observe the colors and shapes. Squint your eyes. Turn your head sideways, whatever you have to do. To look at it.

As of right now, what do you see in the image?

Take your time and don’t rush it, anything could be here.

Thank you.

Finished sketch.

23574330_1860588480663500_1264253311_n

Here’s the finished drawing. I’ve had it sketched out for a few days now. Also have a little color added in too. Took a picture before I added color.

Been lazy about posting the past few weeks or so. Sorry about that, have real life things to work on besides art. The dream is to work on art full time one day. Yes i wish for it tomorrow, but there’s no rush.

You never force the art or anything in general. It all just happens, let it happen without doing it and see what the result becomes. At moments you surprise yourself on what you can achieve. All you have to do is believe in yourself.

There’s the saying it’s all about the journey and not the end result. In the struggles and moments of creating yourself is the fun part. Don’t rush the “Success” but just let it happen.

It will all happen at the correct time, just be patient and trust the process. If you don’t trust or believe anything the negative energy might consume you. Do your best to not do that.

With what I have sketched out, what do you see in the Image?

The guesses vary from all over the place every time. It’s interesting to hear what people see and think of my art. Good luck guessing everyone. I’ll give little hints and such, but not the actual answer.

Thank you.

Technically, we shouldn’t even be here in existence.

The fact there’s a moon and a sun blows my mind.

The trees, flowers, plants, animals, nature and such. It’s all here. But why, what’s the purpose of a tree’s life. Or a plant. An animal its purpose in this world.

Nature’s purpose in this world. We all live with nature. The world is nature. You’re nature. Life it’s one big game of nature.

The things you’re told are either lies, or the truth never to know the actual answer.

Everything in existence is just a theory.

These words I speak and you speak are downloaded into our brains and we all just know the words and the definitions.

Being told this is language. Each “race” has a different dialect.

The human being is made up for 75% water. The rest flesh and bones and such.

Having that thought in my mind, makes me think that we’re all the same actors of life. The king and the peasant are both at the same value. Life is nothing but a manifestation of thought. You think to be here and you are here. ba bam…. It’s that crazy.

The moon is the moon, because we’re told it’s the moon. The Earth is the earth, because they tell us the earth is the earth. The sun is the sun, because they tell us it’s the sun.

3D images all over the place. 5 senses to life. Air, water, oxygen, food and everything we need it just here.

Like a game.

Everything we ever needed is here, somehow it all happened.

The universe should’nt have even been created or anything at all in general. It would have been much easier. But somehow here, are you and me both chilling on “earth”.

The sun and moon surround us.

I look at animals and I’m amazed they’re pieces of 3D art. True beauty.

Trees grow out of the ground. Birds fly in the sky. Bugs live in the ground. There are different climates around the world, with different animals located in each region.

Out of all the climates why these ones?

Colors are right in front of our eyes. We only know the name of each color because we’re told so. I’ll make a (orange/ blue)called blorange.

There’s pain and pleasure. If you were to chop your finger off you’d feel it, your mind would react in a way and probably couldn’t comprehend what just happened.

Depending on your reaction to pain, anything can happen. With pain there’s pleasure. You can abuse both. Make a pleasure numb, or neither pleasure yourself and go insane.

We all think different thoughts and ideas when one opinion is shared. Creating the 6th sense in a way, if you know of Napoleon Hill you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Thinking and seeing can be the same thing in a way.

To think something is to see it in your mind.

Words create pictures in the mind. Pictures create words in the mind.

Are tastes are all different but similar, each person craves or has favorite different foods. That can be adjusted with, or played around with. With slow and tedious effort you can change your taste buds over time. So are taste are all similar but not.

When hearing something we all hear it at different pitches. I hear something, maybe someone else hears something else. Or maybe nothing at all. Whenever I hear things I also see things. I’m not sure how to explain this maybe you’ll understand what I’m saying.

When smelling something we all smell something different. Some have super sonic smelling, hahaha. Others can’t smell anything at all and struggle to smell.

All of these senses create each person. I have all 5 of my senses still, maybe even a 6th one.

I appreciate every sense as of right now, some people only have a few. Others have none and are to never live again. I appreciate every senses as if it were a gift of some sort.

Imagine if tomorrow, I told you that you were to wake up with a black and white world. Where you can’t smell or taste anything. Pleasures are all gone.

So all food tastes like nothingness. There is no color or idea of color. All you can do is talk and hear each other. Nothing else. No form of pleasure.

Imagine how that could affect a person.

This might sound weird, but it’s interesting to me how we all feel are own feeling and live in our own realities. All the same, but we all feel different at the moment.

The moment I wrote this, is the same moment you decided to read this. Past, present and future all align into one.

As long as you keep the mindset positive, you can achieve whatever you put your mind to. Remember to not put false ideas or images in your mind.

They will destroy and eat you away, taking you down. Not creating you into the best you.

I have never been in your shoes before, but I believe in you and whatever you’re going through. You can make it. I believe in you don’t give up.

The struggles and moments in life where you fall and get back up are the times you build yourself into a stronger you.

The universe wakes up and goes to sleep everytime.

So can you.

I believe in you.

Remember to have a great day and keep a smile on that face of yours.

Have a happy and loving life forever and ever and ever.

I send love and happiness to all.

 

Progress on sketch

oct

I thought here would be a good stopping point to take a picture. Not completely done, but almost done.

There’s a little more I need to add before it’s done. I’d guess an hour or so left. Usually don’t pay attention to the time. On Monday I fit in 3 extra hours.

I sat down, forgot to look at the time and noticed I had to go eat something and sleep. If I had no schedule, I would just stay up every night and create.

Random drawing for an hour or two adds up over time. If you’re working on something and have a long time to work on it. Break it up into different days. I never have a set date to finish my art. Just make sure to work enough on it each week.

In the creative procces there’s no rush, take your time and create.

As of right now, what do you see in the Image?

Previous post for comparison :https://chaoticshapes.com/2017/11/06/start-of-new-drawing-2/

Thank you.

 

 

 

 

Start of new drawing.

oct

Worked on this for 3-4 hours on Friday night. Was going to post it that night, but it got too late.

The idea of this drawing is a little weird, someone gave me a very creative idea for a drawing.

As of right now I’d say 2/5 of this is sketched.

If you look closely at the detail maybe you’ll be able to make a picture in your mind.

Whenever I start a drawing I never know where to start. I pick a main area of the image.

This might be a quicker drawing, but I’m not sure. I plan on using some crazy colors. Going to hurt my mind with this one.

Wishing myself luck. Thank you, self, hahaha. Sometimes talking to yourself is the craziest but best answer.

What do you see in this image?

Thank you.

Quote #28

Don’t achieve to be the greatest or the best at something.

Only as best as you can perform.

If you’re better today than you were yesterday, that’s all that matters. Only compare things to yourself. If you compare your flaws and such to others you’ll never be happy. The past you isn’t you. The future you isn’t you. The Current you in this moment is you and nothing else. Learn from your mistakes and move on, don’t hold onto grudges.

I do this often with my art and tell myself it’s not the difference and do not compare, it’s thyself improvements that matter.

Over time you see the slow progress and change.

You’ll be surprised what a year of dedication and hard work can pay off.

Remember to not work yourself too hard or too less, be humble and patients. Things will fall into place.

Creating your reality. It takes time for all and different amounts. Just never give up on yourself.

Perfection is impossible, but you can always improve

The rose never gave up blooming or growing.

So neither should you.

I look at the world and I see endless roses of beauty. All humans have the potential to become anything they want. Anything you dream and wish for.

The rose dreamed of becoming a beautiful rose. So that means a person who’s in full control can achieve anything.

The flower is still and never moves, growing patiently. In the end, the outcome is beautiful. The full life is lived then the flower dies. Just how like us humans live.

We grow and then die. All a process, all growing at different speeds and lengths. Achieving different things.

All different, but looking the same in the end. All just one conscious. In the end all different kinds of beauty. Different flowers, and different beauties.

This life is for you to create and grow into whatever your heart desires. Just remember, never give up.

Resistance will pull you to the floor like quicksand but it’s your mission to fight and battle the resistance.

Goodluck to everyone on their journey of growing and blooming into the most beautiful rose/flower you can.
Don’t sweat things or rush them, remember to be patient and humble about all situations going on in front of you.

Good or bad, they all will create you into the flower you wish to be. Some grow without even knowing others are in control. We’re all different

Have fun creating your flower of life, don’t regret things and live in the moment. You’ll appreciate all the work and time at the end. It’s only when the person is rewarded that they keep going.

But when failing it’s easier to not even try at all. It’s easier to not even grow at all, when not thinking to grow.

When you start to think about your surroundings and what’s in it. You blossom with love within.

Feed your flower with love and not hatred.

Everyone have fun growing your flower!

 

Multi Dimensional Cactus landscape.

cactus

Here is the final and complete painting. I had a lot of fun creating this one.

The feel with paint is a lot different than colored pencils. More child like and less weight on the paper. More free you can say.

When thinking about popular or well known art pieces usually they are paintings. I think I know why, it makes sense in my mind. The canvas cost quite a lot. paint is expensive. Paintings just seem to value more in general. That could be why. Looking at paintings up close is very interesting. you can see every stroke and emotion put into the canvas.

With a drawing you can’t really see where the person started or the strokes, but still as interesting. Don’t get me wrong.

I wish I could paint more after making this, in the painting mood now. Only if I could not care and paint on canvas after canvas. I’ll start painting on things besides canvas, it’s a thought hahaha.

This is a painting of a few cacti, in a field. If you look closely at all the details and colors, using your imagination. You can create a solid picture. I will not tell you what I have painted in the background. That’s for you to create within your mind. What would the purpose of art be if you were given the answer every time.

The guesses for this painting were all over the place Like usual. A few people had a very intricate description of what they saw. On the previous posts. Very good eyes you have, artists see alike.

Your assignment is to look at this painting and create whatever picture you want in your mind.

If you don’t see a cactus at all or anything else. That’s okay, all I ask for is for you to enjoy my work.

If all you happen to see is a bunch of crumpled up colors so be it. Anything is possible. like I always say, my art is neither correct or incorrect. It’s whatever the viewer imagines.

I can say everything I want, but it won’t matter in the end. because you won’t see what I see. You only see what you see. We’ll all see different colors, shapes and figures.

Goodluck.
