About half way done, you can say.

Worked on this yesterday. Try to post the day off, when I draw. Got too late and had no time. Rather get extra sleep instead of frantically writing a blog post just because.

You can always do something tomorrow instead of today. If the second day, even happens, don’t promise yourself the second day. It’s only thought and wished upon.

To plan the future but never know the end results. Till acted upon at the exact moment.

I only thought to make this the next day and I did. One task achieved for the day! Try to accomplish the important things crossing throughout your mind. The ones that bring you happiness, not just out of force and hatred. Thoughts within you that are hiding, thoughts you fear to express to the world. Be yourself

Don’t acknowledge the ignorant thoughts or people. Whatever thoughts are most important to you and make you happy will turn out the best in the end. The chaotic thoughts and people will throw you off balance, taking you in the wrong direction.

When posting a color update turns into a philosophical story, hahahaha. Sorry. I’m just being me in this lonesome world that appears before my eyes.

That’s just the way my mind works, everything within it is very detailed. Similar to my art, the pieces of the pieces.

Each person interprets and sees the worlds differently, creating their own story.

Within words hides greater messages, just like in art there’s a message hidden within the picture. Messages are hidden within everything. Listen for them and you’ll hear it at the correct moment in time. You’ll be appreciated that you listened

This is where I’m at the moment. Thought right now would be a good time to stop and take a picture.

Taking a short break to post, then drawing for a little bit longer.

Having fun with this one. The position of the drawing is interesting, trying my best to separate the colors and shades. To make the image as identifiable as possible.

If you look at each area of the image, your mind will create a picture over time.

 

First colors added

25114997_1911937648861916_315374573_n

Here’s the progress of the past day or so. Took a picture before I started working on it tonight.

Taking a break right now to post a picture of my past progress. As of right now, I’m a bit further than this.

Don’t let the colors throw you off. In art, any color can go anywhere. All the colors are the same in the end. If light were taken away or the sun. There would only be black and white. It’s more of the tone in the color than anything else. The pigment

Many are guessing the same thing, don’t second guess yourself, take a look at each detail closely.

The answer will not be given until the end, only hints and ideas will be given towards the answer.

Within your imagination what do you see?

Finished sketch.

24829489_1907854839270197_1306164060_n

This is the finished sketch. Drawing this was quite sudden. It was a fast decision, the paper was put on the drawing table. The final product was produced in a long but short period. Only took me about 8 hours. But only took one day not a few as usual.

I’ve said this in my past posts. The speed I’m drawing at seems to be increasing slowly but surely. The ease and thoughts disappear and only art is the true focus. When all thoughts are canceled and the only focus is art. You get lost in your own work, finding a place to follow at and you get lost on an adventure.

My best way of explaining it is this. The chair is the beginning of the trail for each time I draw. Imagine a wooden hiking sign, without a name written on it. The name is blank and you create what happens. When the pencil is put on the paper I begin walking down the path, depending on how I feel in each moment determines the path of the route. Places that were seen and actions experienced upon. The actions and things that were seen create the adventure/trail

The whole idea or purpose is to focus like a child and have fun each time I draw, don’t force my legs dragging each step. Enjoy the steps taken and appreciate every scenery exposed to or seen on the trail. That’s the drawing process, the walking down the path, to enjoy it and not force or autopilot it.

Don’t like to boast about myself, but thought I would share this with you. If I can improve my art skills so can you. The results happen right in front of your eyes. This works with everything else as well. Not to say I’m better than you, but to show how anyone can improve at something. It just takes time and effort. In the end, things will slowly add up and make sense. If I were to force and rush each drawing the original beauty will be lost. The true potential won’t be shown. Take it easy but still make sure things are happening

Remember to never give up on yourself, then no progress will be shown. Even if it’s a little amount who cares 1% is greater than -1% any amount is greater. Make each day feel awesome.

With the image being where it’s, what do you see? look at all details and shapes. The possibilities could never end, use that imagination of yours.

 

 

 

New sketch (Almost complete)

spider

Here is how far I am at the moment. Probably should have stopped sooner to take a picture. Was to in the moments of making the drawing, didn’t want to take a picture till later.

Sorry about that, meant to take a picture sooner. If I could make a flip book of every segment you could watch the sketch build up over time. When I get a camera, maybe I can figure something out like that.

In the process of making this drawing, I’ve noticed my speed keeps increasing every time. My old self would have taken a few days or a while to sketch this. Instead, it took about 3 sessions for today. Still, have a little more time draw after I post. So about 6 plus hours as of right now.

My mind tells me when it’s time for a break, then a new session is started. Usually, last around 2 or so hours each. Unless it’s a day where time is completely lost and hours and hours go by and I forget to eat. Depends on the day.

With where the sketch is at so far, what do your eyes see in the image?

Remember only hints and clues will be given, good luck guessing. Use that imagination of yours to the fullest potential. Anything could be in the image, look closely.

This one is a bit different, having fun with it. Let’s see where this one goes.

 

Octopus

24252166_1894684797253868_119364578_n

Finished up the drawing about an hour ago. I Always clean the image before spraying it. When doing that I check the paper for pencil shavings from the colors and fill in white areas that are easily noticeable.

Whenever a piece is done, I look at it and think it’s never done. Something can always be added or messed with.

I have to stop myself or I would work on one single piece my whole life, hahahaha.

You never know when you’re really done, I guess you’re done when your guts say. “Okay, I think we’re done here now.” hahahaha.

Throughout the process of drawing this, there were endless guesses. Like always, the guesses ranged from, the image I was thinking, things I never thought to be in the image and many more ideas. It’s always enjoyable and interesting when people look at my art.

Sometimes people see things that I never knew were in my art, and it’s just there. It just takes time for my mind to process others ideas and images. I don’t always see what everyone else sees. I try my best to use my imagination and see what the viewers see

I guess anything could be in my art. When there’s no color, the range of ideas is infinite throughout the mind. With color as, well, anything could be in the image too.

It’s all about what the viewer decides to see. They say what you see defines your emotions in a way. How you’re feeling at the moment.

Everyone will see the same exact image, but not necessarily. Depending on the individual the image will be transferred differently. Seeing the same image but in the end, we’ll all look at it differently creating a new story for each one of us.

Let your imagination take over and create a picture for you to see. Don’t hold on, let it be free. Think no thoughts and just focus on the colors and shapes to create a final image.

In this image, I see a colorful octopus.

When looking at this drawing the meaning of it will be different for everyone.

My first thought is freedom or a free-spirited soul. All the colors represent the journey happing within the octopus, crazy looking to most but happy and full of colors being the emotions on the inside. Feeling all emotion that can be felt. From the worst emotions to the best emotions. Every feeling that is possible. Notice how I say that this is the inside of the octopus. It’s the inside that only matters. Each person is like this octopus. All revealing different colors and such. Never to really show, but it’s all within. Being the emotions, creating each individual.

This octopus is on a mission and nothing is in its way, the colors also represent the strength and vitality of the spirit of the octopus.

Like I said before what you see is how you feel emotionally.

Each drawing in a way. After I complete it, I’m the drawing. I feel what the image looks like. The colors represent how I feel at the moment.

I feel like a colorful octopus on a mission and nothings stopping me. I’m riding on a wave at a certain frequency enjoying this journey of life day by day. For each day to bring new endeavors. All challenges accepted to create thyself into the greatest version that’s out there.

Life itself and the experiences you create are the greatest teachers that are out there. Learn and mess up, both are needed. Life’s not a clean and simple paved road, there will be many twists and turns.

Just never lose your balance or frequency, kinda like riding a bike and in the end, everything will be okay. Follow your gut and heart.

I’m this octopus and so are you, it’s just that we will all interpret It differently.

I shared my story. What’s your story? What do you see in this image? There’s no right or wrong, share as you please.

Color update (soon to be finished)

color1234

Here’s how far I’m at the moment, worked on this for a few hours last night. Late into the night, it seems that I have more of a spark of imagination at night. When I’m supposed to be sleeping and in dreamland, I feel the most creative.

If sleep wasn’t important I would sacrifice a lot of sleep for art time. But If I don’t sleep a certain amount of hours I feel sluggish all day. Not working to my full potential. It’s in the small, focused intense moments where you build yourself. Not all the sloppy fast moments when you’re trying to hurry and finish something. Similar to try to run in front of a person in a race.

We’re all moving at a different pace/ frequency, move at what pace is comfortable for you. To move very fast without thought most likely you’ll go down the wrong path and become frustrated. The race never ends. Remember to take time to breathe

Remember how I said, sometimes I get in the ‘Zone”. This is the best analogy for me to explain. The race, we’re all running at different paces. Don’t try to be first or last. Just become what is within you. The greatest you.

When drawing I “warm up” for the short race. A mental warm up. Coloring in the shapes is jogging for me. Find a pace to follow on, be steady and you’ll conquer and destroy. I reached the “artist high” or “runners high” when coloring this time again. It’s probably the best sensation I can ever feel. This feeling is a feeling of bliss. The pencils move without thought, they just do. In such concentration.

Whenever this happens, it feels as if the colored pencils, take control of me. My fascination with colors is so intense, I get this childlike feeling when I have colors in my hand. I always appreciate these moments with intense love and gratitude. Only if this could happen every time. Trying to train my body to do this more often, if you understand what I’m saying.

With the colors that have been added, what do you see in the picture revealed in front of your eyes? Remember folks, anything is possible. Don’t have the colors throw you off. The imagination is infinite and so are you.

 

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?

 

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.)

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.
