From BLAH to Ahah!

As an artist I have come to the realization that my art has various stages it goes through -- and they range from beautiful to ugly -- each and every time. I start each piece with grand ideas of what I want to create -- always having hope of what it might be. No matter how it starts, and how many I love this stages it has -- it ALWAYS gets to a super ugly stage, where I really don't like it.

Kinda like this.


This is a critical stage, I think where many artists abandon the piece they are working on. When really, all you need to do is walk away for a day or two or ten years -- and come back to finish what you started with fresh eyes and a different perspective.

 

After a while, you end up loving what you do, and it might end up looking like this and making you super happy!


All these pages needed were some details -- some black and white lines to make them interesting and beautiful.


These two also had the same "ugly stage" but now they make me happy.


Thanks for dropping by today, have a great week!
