Inktober, drawing bears and mistakes

If you've been checking from my Twitter, how my Inktober is going, you've probably noticed that it's mostly about bears. I started from autumn theme. It made the most sense for me. Day three was the first one with a bear. Actually the bear was just side character, that I needed as buddy for the bunny.  In next days all my ideas started to be around bears and I couldn't stop drawing them. I started to make multiple drawings per day and then moved to draw those on computer also. My whole first week of October was just drawing bears! More about it Drawing - by hand vr programs

I've always drawn bears. When I'm just letting my mind to wonder or I have to suddenly draw something, it's often been a bear. They have been looking like this a long time now. I didn't even realized, that it was it own character before this month. It's always fluffy and patched. I think the idea for the look is from my own teddy bear. I've saved only two of my childhood's stuffed animals. They are two teddy bears that I got from my great grandmother when I was born. They are like brown mother and cub. One big and one small one that fits perfectly sitting together. Even the big one isn't that big, but when I was small it felt too big for me and I liked more about the little one. The patchy past of the bear comes from my love to Me to You bears. Those blue nosed, patched bears, that has always something nice to do and cute to say. If you don't know about what I'm talking about, check them from here;

'Friends of reading' is good example about mistakes, that I somehow can see just after sharing or posting a work or a text. Never before! Markers are evil with mistakes. You can't ever completely make them disappear, but there is couple ways to fix those. Well, make those to something else then, what you originally thought. First for bad mistakes is repair tape. I've used it couple times, but it's not my favourite. First, it isn't always perfect color fit with the paper and the texture is different, so it's easy to see, if you just add it and not do anything else. Second reason, why it isn't my favourite is that markers don't work that well on it and they get Small peaces of it to the tip of the marker. You can get that off if you draw to extra paper as long, that color gets clear again! The best way to hide mistakes is to keep drawing more. I like saying, the best way to hide a elephant is to bring hundred others! So one black line on paper looks mistake, but when you add more, it'll look like texture. This is why I don't believe that all mistakes are flaws Dont worry about mistakes, use those for your benefits! More in my Twitter, @FromMadeByMeri

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
