Thanks for taking the time to view my profile and artwork, your generosity and support really helps boost my confidence and encourages me to become a better artist and designer. |
Hmm, something about me... Art has always been passion of my mine and my first true love. It's a form of release, my own 'therapy treatment'. If there's no other way I can express myself, art is the best way to do it.
I chose the name Ant-artistik because I have a unique and personal style that makes me a versatile artist. As an artist, I like diversity. I like to incorporate different styles of art into my artwork because I want to test out my creativity and challenge myself. I draw and design from many different subjects, so I really have no sort of specialty in what I create. I'll go from drawing cute, furry little animals to drawing ferocious looking dragons.
What inspires me to do art is simply what I see that sparks my interest from a picture to what is seen on TV.
I can draw almost anything off the top of my head but there's one thing I simply can't do with a pencil and that's writing my signature.
I discovered my talent when I was 5; I was doing finger painting in kindergarten. I immediately took a strong interest into becoming an artist when I was 10 and throughout my experience, I've gained a few skill sets to further expand my creativity. If you compared my digital art skills and traditional art skills, you'd see a very huge difference between the two; my drawing skills are far better than my computer skills.
I have this 89 piece art set that I bought from a Hobby Lobby store. It's got 15 broad markers, 24 colored pencils, 30 oil pastels, 12 watercolour paints, 2 drawing pencils, 2 brushes, a water bottle, sharpner, eraser and palette. Guess what? ...I've rarely used any of them.
One style of art that I want to perfect would probably be realism.
Some advice I can give to new artists is to learn from your mistakes. It's there for a reason. It gives you the opportunity to correct them and before you know it, you'll make fewer mishaps in creating your artwork than you did before.
Another tip I can offer to beginning artists is to ALWAYS take breaks. Pace yourself. If you don't, you'll lose interest in finishing a work of art that's not completed. Find the time to do other things that you like to do to keep your mind sharp.
