My Artistic Journey - Contest by vinigal123
My Artistic Journey - Contest
Done Using Corel painter X3 and Bamboo wacom tablet. No part in this piece have been photoshopped or manipulated using textures in any way. Fully drawn using a stylus. 

This is a metaphorical piece to explain my artistic journey through the seasons.

Rain/Thunder: Chaos and uncertainty:  I grew up in a world where Art was frowned, my family hated me for drawing and was dead against it, they wanted me to get into something in which the career made money. I wasn't allowed to draw under any circumstances and they made sure I chose any career but art.

Autumn and Winter: Loneliness, Depression and Low self confidence: Choosing the wrong career stream made me lose everything. I lost confidence in myself, lost support of everything and worse I stopped drawing. Drawing had always been an outlet for me to draw my feelings and it wasnt there anymore.

Summer: Support, Encouragement : When I started going for college, one of my friends gifted me a tablet and I discovered the joy of art again. I sat and learned how to draw on my own. Started with learning how to write letters using a tablet on MS paint. I let go of past restrictions and mistakes. I discovered a new the joy of drawing.

Spring: Hope: I started drawing and entering contests and showing the world my paintings. My friends supported me and helped me a lot. They showed me that to do something, all you need to do is believe in yourself!!

The thumbnails on the sides show the progress of my paintings. More than anything I hope it inspires all my fellow artists to believe in yourself and to never ever ever give up!!

Corel painter X3, Bamboo tablet. No photo manipulation, editing or textures used. Fully drawn using a tablet. 
Getting crazy about digital art. I have found out that Corel painter X3 serves my purpose beautifully and I dont need texturing or need to manipulate any effect :-)

I wanted to remind you of the little project you had taken part in.

Unfortinetly you have missed few recent features... Well we want to give you your last chance before all your previous raffles are gone! Here is this weeks feature:
Please don't miss it!

Love Thank you for joining :iconfeaturemywork:! I'll quickly explain how you can make the most out of our group!

Bullet; Blue The easiest way to take advantage of the group is with our Features! We do a weekly 1 person feature, with a few paragraphs of your strengths, some pointers on how to improve and one Featured Deviation 

Bullet; Green To get a feature, all you have to do is check out the most recent feature and add a comment onto the Featured Deviation! 

Bullet; Red I'm sure you're wondering, "How can you encourage people to say something other than "cool"?" Well, our group offers badges to commend thoughtful, kind, encouraging critiques and words. So far, we have not had anyone simply give a one word reply. Which makes us very happy!

Bullet; Pink So, the badges you may ask? Currently we offer two badges, The Community Spirit Award and the Rising Star Award. The Community Spirit Award basically commends people who are community minded, offering critiques, comments, features etc.

While the "Rising Star Award" is issued out once a month to those who apear to be "One to watch"; showing great promise and skill. Its recoginising hard work, basically C:

As always, we hope to grow and expand. Any critiques, suggestions or thoughts on how FeatureMyWork can improve will be appreciated!

Feel free to ask any questions!

:dontpoke: (This is where Lawli gets bored of all that boring, absolutely mundane stuff and starts interrogating you-feel free to imagine yourself bound to some awkward metal chair, in a lifeless little dungeon somewhere with several lovely...ah, bloodstains? You could also take a moment to envision this short Asian girl circling you with a slightly sadistic smile-which might or might not be me, but never mind that. Feel free to read this little -and answer!)

P.S. Also, I insist on a cookie  from Granny Simply's cookie jar, which is filled with wonders never seen before. (Such as gigantic cookies!)*Pumps fist in air*

P.P.S. :happybounce:   Sorry if that's a bit overwhelming.
