ATA: ICoS quote for inspiration

icosquote

 

I love art supplies but rarely do anything with them. I was rereading ICoS making notes for future editing and in Fade, a quote stood out to me. I’ve been feeling emo and I thought I could try to use it as inspiration.

I’ve had an oval piece of paper for years that I kept aside for the day I might finally have a purpose for it, and last Sunday I realized this was it. I used oil pastel crayons for the words and then used watercolor to wash over it. I taped it over a big art piece that happens to have the same coloring, because it’s the only space I have above my computer.

If you can’t read it, this is the quote:

“But that was the way it went anytime a person was on the precipice of change. The fear of the future mixed with the loss of the past. At those times, all a person could do was step forward.”

ATA: Boyd’s (Bad) Advice (#1?)

More Ais’ Terrible Art! This was inspired because I was catching up on youtube subscriptions and this video got me thinking about how it would be funny to have an advice column featuring the different stages of Boyd in ICoS.

Here you go! I named it #1? because I don’t know if I’ll do more. If you want to give me fake (or real) questions for advice to keep in a prompt list for future Boyd’s (Bad) Advice comics, let me know! This one I got from searching for advice column questions lolz

Ais’ Terrible Art: Stonework

And now we’re up to date with the latest Ais’ Terrible Art, that I’m crossposting today to tumblr.

This is actually unrelated to ICoS. I bought a program and wanted to test it out by doing a shorter drawing. I decided to try doing an art piece inspired by something I wrote in writing group on April 2, 2012. We were given a randomly generated word and had to write something in 7 minutes based on it. I got the word ‘stonework.’

Here is the video of me drawing it:

This is what I wrote:

And here is the final product on its own:

WIP Files: ART, unrelated, 1/25/14

wip012514

WIP Files 1/25/14. I didn’t do anything the last few days so I thought I should do something today. I thought it would be fun to record a drawing as I did it. Unfortunately I apparently didn’t know how to use the program because for some reason it only recorded the toolbar of Paint lolzzz.

Anyway I make no excuses for why she’s all screwed up proportionately and lopsided other than because, as I keep saying, I really just can’t draw very well lol

This whole thing was done from beginning to end in Paint. She isn’t anyone in particular, I just started randomly drawing whatever came to mind to try out the recording software. I’m really sad it didn’t record 😦 Oh this took idk. About an hour. Mostly it was hard trying to do shading in Paint without harsh lines. I didn’t really succeed in the shading but oh well. By that time I was just having fun with colors.

Next for WIP Files: I need to get some damn writing done this weekend! If I can be on top of it mayhaps I’ll even finish the Project Fierce thing. I hope.
