I believe everybody has some sort of artistic ability, be it architecture, photography, painting, building, sewing… there are a number of things that can be classified as “art.” I have several areas in which I wish to be an artist, defined by Webster’s Dictionary as:
: a person who creates art : a person who is skilled at drawing, painting, etc.
: a skilled performer
: a person who is very good at something
The full definition is much lengthier (imagine that). Anyway, one of those areas I would like to be “very good at” is painting/drawing. I don’t have the best motivation to always work on it, but when I do, I almost always use references. I would like to get to a point in my life when I can create my own images from memory. One image that I have completed recently is a version of Princess Mononoke (a character from an anime). I used a reference and took shots of my progress.
