Posting photos daily - how I feel about it

I've been posting my works in Twitter daily now 36 days. I have new views about this, then before I started Inktober. Before I was thinking so carefully, about what I'm showing to world. Does everything has to be perfect was literally for remind myself, to remember not to take art always as seriously. I posted with that post my random sketches. Well now I feel, that I'm posting random sketches at everyday! It's good to show the down sides and imperfections time to time, but as content creator, it's not the best to send too much of those. It should be more about things you love to do and see. I keep looking other creators and feel that I'm so much worse then they are with something. I think we all keep forgetting that someone might been practicing something even decades. I'm not going to be as talented  in a year with Photoshop, then someone who went to schools for things like that and does it everyday for living. Thankfully it's not just how good you are with some style or tools, it's also about our artistic eye and how you see the world. About what you want to share with the world.

This leads us to the good sides with posting everyday my works. I'm not happy at everyday, about what I got done. The whole idea of Inktober was to practise and get better. That's the biggest thing I got from it. I have timeline to see my own progress. There is ups and downs, but I'm seeing now something I didn't saw before. I see myself getting better. That's not easy thing to observe yourself. Also if you aren't in school or working with arts, it's not easy to encourage and inspire yourself to keep practising day after day, week after week. Posting gives just enough pressure for myself to do it. No too much to crush me. Knowing that there is people, who are waiting to see it, can be really big power to keep working. Positive feedback is thousand times more important, then I ever waited it to be, before I started to write.

Also before this I often felt, that I don't do much. Sure I do more now. Even more then I've shared online. Put actually seeing in somewhere, what all I got done in a month, makes me feel so much more productive person. And of course I love it that with Creative Every Day challenge it can be and will be more then just drawing. More in 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…
