I feel like your running this blog from a ship. I shipped manned completly by art students in armor. Art students that have no idea how to defend the ship from pirates but are great at drawing them.
Obviously, if I ever was attacked by pirates the first thing I’d do is to start drawing them, not fighting them (the second is to join them, probably (well, or be killed))
Hi Marta <3 I've seen you in my dream. It was kind of artist meet at the cafe and everyone were sitting at the long table and you were next to me drawing something intently. I really wanted to start a conversation but was nervous because my english isnt good enough for that. So I kept silent but then you started to croon a disney song that I knew very well so I joined you happily.
Oh no that’s so cute and warm! I’d like that (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
oh my god you know pangrams? These sentences that include all letters of a given alphabet? Polish ones are so fun
Pójdźże, kiń tę chmurność w głąb flaszy! (in polish so old it almost sounds like russian, something like: ‘Come on, down your sorrows in the bottom of the bottle’)
Dość błazeństw, żrą mój pęk luźnych fig (‘Stop this foolishness, they are devouring my loose figs’[????])
O, mógłże sęp chlań wyjść furtką bździn (I have no idea. Edit, drzwi-do-szafy translated it! ‘Oh, a boozes moocher could have had left through fartsy wicket gate.’)
I always have Master and Commander running in the background when I paint traditionally. Always. I’ve seen it 5 times this week.
Hey! I've only been to the first page of your tumblr and I LOVE IT ALREADY! Thank you for making my day, you're such a wonderful person. A salutation from Indonesia :)
AHH thank you for making my day!
I don't have an answer to your question, but if you like broadway musicals you should definitely check out Into the Woods, as it has a narrator/storyteller who at some point becomes a part of the story, and it messes everything up. It's really interesting, and the entire show is available online. I should warn you though, it's not exactly a happy story.
Oh! Thank you! Will definitely check it out, sounds interesting!
hey I was wondering if you could answer a sort of question, I'm deeply entranced by your art for a while... I always wonder,, do you just sort of "know" where light falls? or do you ever look at pose references? what about things like, light shining on water, do you just feel comfortable with knowing what to do through practice?? like a reference bank in your head? your drawing just seems so effortless ;w; and I think your ships and waves and painting is wonderful no matter what you say!!!
THAT’S A HARD QUESTION;; (also partially because I usually draw in flat colours so it’s hard for me to recall my process of thinking when I actually do shade)
But uhh it usually depends on mood mostly? Like, the first thing you do in drawing isn’t thinking about your source of light but about what you want to present by your drawing (that’s why when drawing ships I usually put the sun in front of the ship, to give a sense of direction and freedom).
ANYWAY I’m not the best person to explain the importance of light in mood-building so I googled it for you: 1, 2, 3, (they don’t have pictures unfortunately buut if you’re not sure what kind of lighting will affect a mood, try drawing a flat coloured drawing, and then try adding different lighting on top of that?)
As for the portraits or semi-shaded characters without background that don’t really create a scene (let’s be honest, I never draw anything other than characters hugging or kissing), I usually draw a light that exposes the faces the most. In soft-painted portraits I’m most fond of a veeery soft light from front and a stronger one from the back/from the side like this).
Collab with Hanyes! ( ´ ▽ ` )
(Most of it was done by Hanyes though!)
