Feeling Digital Lately



Diving into The Digital World




Artist Freelance

Despite the few quick posts that I have placed on my Instagram, I have not really been entertaining sketches like I usually do. I am more of a black and white medium artist. I do like the challenges that digital art brings in it is very intriguing to find out all of the different styles that are possible. I recently did a 60 2nd quick sketch on Instagram and it did better than I expected it to. I'm very fond of how much digital work that I can get done , especially in the freelancing world. Freelancing art is been very rewarding And I have a few Pictures to post.

 As I can to as I continue to grow it is nice to know and find out that as I continue to grow it is nice to know and find out that art is subjective. this means that to the person who is who is watching the artistry at who is watching the artistry at work it means who is watching the artistry at work in mean something different then it does who is watching the artistry at work....ent then it does to the artist period Who is watching the artistry at work in mean something different then it does to the artist. my goal is to my goal is to be purely inspirational My goal is to be purely inspirational. I I find that having that I I find that having the time to do art for pleasure rather than freelance for pleasure rather than freelancing how has been difficult lately very period however as I enjoy my vacation in period however as I enjoy my vacation in California I do find myself with more freetime,  quick sketching and doing artwork for myself. This is very enjoyable for me.



Some more freelance work will be coming soon as dates expire I get to post more

NEW ARTIST WELCOME!

I guess I have a habit of thinking that everyone is new to everything, but if that were true, People like me wouldn't write for people like you. Whoever you may be reading about this. The economy has been a quite a funk but It's important to know and plan ahead for when the time picks up. Planning and strategies are truly everything for the new artist. You may find yourself doodling and you look at the other art pieces from around the world and you say, they make this money, so can I.

ITS A MINDSET

Regardless of who said it first, it is true, and standard. For an artist to release their soul and continually put their passion into paper, into the air, it's important to stay positive. Most people look to art to relieve them from a sense and feeling of pain and others use it as self-expression, regardless of how it is used, one must continue to use it, like a drug, if not one may find their life spiraling into a weird complex design that you never thought was possible. This is because freedom to release is a mental thing that manifests into reality in whatever way it sees possible.

HOW TO GET THERE

So what do you do? Find a way to relieve that stress, and keep your brain away from "HOT ZONE SECTOR: S.T.R.E.S.S.E.D" => Internally you want to, but if you do it internally and then it manifests itself into reality, all you can say is, "I knew it! I knew this would happen." The person who decided to stay to it and is now making 5k a month as a starter is saying the same thing, but in a lighter sense, "I knew it was possible, I just knew it!" Less stress on him than you right now! So what can I say? Commitment is the first starter for nubie, because there is successful hobbyist! What's a hobbyist, people who don't just do art, they work a full time doc's job, and they too have committed to the spiritual relief of art. The artnubie knows nothing about this yet.....

Instead of continuing during adversity we as people tend to give up. Don't give up Invest in Yourself! If I were to have given up I would have never made this picture







Too motion the expression would be too complicated so too convey emotion and expression, as the words depicted in the background may sometimes seem difficult to overcome. Adversities occur because we have so many people as adversaries. Pushing past your hurt to help others understand that they are not alone is a key concept when developing your art. The purpose is always subjective to the onlooker, however inspirational, art is meant to change the mood or tude of a room.

How To Turn Pennies Into Dollars as an Artist

Cha Ching







Pennies saved in your home business can turn into dollars at the
end of the day, and dollars can quickly multiply into hundreds
or thousands of dollars over time. Henry Ford taught us that to simplify the manufacture of
automobiles, that the best way to do so was to install the
assembly line. That one change revolutionized the auto
manufacturing industry permitting the industry to build cars at
a cost whereas the average person could afford to buy one.

The lesson we should take from this is that having the ability
to improve the process of getting the job quicker and cheaper,
without compromising the quality of the job being done, will
help catapult the person who simplified the process to the top
of his/her field.

Pennies saved in your home business can turn into dollars at the
end of the day, and dollars can quickly multiply into hundreds
or thousands of dollars over time.

Doubt me if you will, but let me ask you a question. Do you
think a saving of two fifths of a penny could make any real
difference in the profit margin of a home business? Of course
the right answer is "it depends on how many transactions are
done in a year, utilizing the savings of the two fifths of one
penny."

You only have to think back a couple of decades to really
appreciate this question. Do you remember the nut that lived and
died in a Las Vegas hotel room? You know the one who was a
billionaire, and was so worried about germs that he died of
starvation? If you guessed Howard Hughes (1905-76), pat yourself
on the back.

Now Howard did not make all of his money on his two-fifths of
one penny. He did, however, make a ton of money from his two
fifths of one penny. It seems Howard owned a can manufacturing
company. And one day, Howard's team figured out how they could
make one minor change in the design of their food can to reduce
the amount of tin necessary to make a single can.

As the story goes --- if my memory serves me correctly --- the
reduction in tin usage equaled a saving of two-fifths of one
penny per can. Howard --- being the really smart businessman
that he was --- decided that he would not be so greedy as to
keep all of the savings for himself. What Mr. Hughes did do was
to keep half of the savings for himself, and give the other half
to his customers. The incredible thing about Mr. Hughes decision
is that by saving his customers an extra one-fifths of one cent
per can, he managed to take more market share away from his
competition --- netting his company an additional and
a substantial portion of the total market share in the canning
industry.

Let us return our thoughts to your home business. Have you ever
gotten the feeling of excitement --- when you read something or
thought of something --- that you could not wait to implement
this new idea? This could be one of those moments...

In every home business, there are certain processes that we do
over and again. Sometimes it may be possible to trim the time or
expense of a process which in turn will add pennies or dollars
to your bottom line. If it is a process that you do hundreds or
thousands of times per month, then your savings will multiply
into hundreds or thousands of dollars in monthly savings.

Imagine what running a home business was like BEFORE the
computer...

Before the personal computer, we had to hand type all letters
and invoices. Now, we can setup a letter or invoice that we send
out quite often, and we can save it in our word processor so
that when we need to use it again, we can print it quickly and
efficiently. There is no longer a need to type the document
again from scratch.

The computer has simplified our business communications and has
provided us the opportunity to reduce our costs of doing
business.

Think about all of the other processes that the computer has
enabled us to do for far less expensive than what we could in the
past.

In this case, a computer is a tool that permits us to save
time and money.

So, my challenge to you is to begin examining the processes in
your own home business and look for ways in which you can save
yourself time and money. It is far better for you to contemplate
on this matter than it is for me to do so for you. Simply put,
you know your business better than anyone on the planet does.
Therefore, you are in a better position than anyone to find
those extra dollars that will decrease your costs and increase
your profits.

The extra pennies and dollars you could extract from your
business could spell the difference between success and failure
for your home business enterprise.

Freelancing for The Artist






How To Get Freelance Gigs:

Retaining your freelancing client is always going to be based off word of mouth. The gossip is how good are you versus how good is she, versus, the style and type of art the dealer in mind. There is no telling wha they have in mind if the don't draw but what is the true question. The aclectic taste versus the 3d architect and new world perspective.
It's all about what you want it to say, or what the buyer in question wants, freelancing is not hey I'll draw this picture for you, it is
here is what I have drawn, 
here is what I can do for you for an extra fee.
Your inventory at one point in time can be your life. 
That's important to remember.

I spent a few days on this, waiting for paint to draw, dropping off things between clients and school,
this project was a pain in my behind, but Overall, it came out GREAT!!!
It was more than what they wanted, it was great!

I wish I had gotten a pic of it in the frame, but I do it because I love it!

I hope you enjoy this!

So two ladies that I have done recently I didn't realize theyw ere both looking the same way until putting them next to each other, I guess it's just the mood I was in. While I have no tattoo's I have been absolutely fascinated with them for a very long time. I do however have a few unique piercings. 👀😌🙈🙈🙈🙇
My younger sister does have a few tatt's 👀👀👀
While I won't get any, I will continue to draw them as I please. 
They look pretty.

College? [UPDATED 2018]

Well I guess it's time you know, I went for Art,
so What are you going to do with it?
I freelance, but I just came across another
Great idea, why not blog about it?
I Would LOVE INPUT, and insight,
It would keep me inspired!
That's the biggest thing!
So Here is to the new years
A sketch I put together in my head, and wanted to see how it would look on paper, 
I would love a little insight here in the creative process.
A recent piece I put through looked like this
I had a lot of fun here!

For more go visit my ig: ARTKIDTASTIC, however, my blog won't have the same content, at least not until it's purchased. Once they are purchased they will show up on the site, probably slightly altered more than likely, but it's what I like to do. If you want to know more about me personally, feel free to ask away.


So why choose to go back to update an art blog, well I am relatively pleased with my results, but I do say I have begun to entangle myself into a world of new adventures, and a new major, that would be Finance and Economics. I did, change my major in the last year. I now only have one more year to go. I am pleased with the results, but if you comment below and let me know what you guys want to know about I will gladly blog about it ;) I am very well versed now in Art, Finance, Personal finance, and making money online. I will begin blogging soon.

IS college worth it? As a student I get a lot of benefits, I would recommend looking into how you can become a student who recieves a lot of benefits. I have to take a year in and out of school every now and then just for a B.A because I couldn't always afford it. But now, school is paying for itself ;).

Art As a Life Style

Got to draw even when you are bored, frustrated, mad, something might come out of it, the produces the calming effect of life for you. My choice of beverage is coffee, as a matter of fact, I'm drinking some iced right now. But my life how many might define it to be so successful and happy, I find chaotic all the time, coffee just always helps my irrational mind become sane again.
And music of course! This song has been on my playlist for a good minute lol!
Panda by a guy named Desiigner who raps his behind off he is good
I don't know what goes through his mind when he raps, but 
I can never try to understand someone else's past, 
all people ever see is the present
So when he opens his mouth
there is so much to tell in so little time
I can only imagine the pressure.

Serious pressure, my pen burst and I hate to throw away a pen with so much ink. 
SO I use it.

The Lion and The Witch







My adventures with water colors started off very slowly and quickly expanded to a broad range of color everywhere.
This year I delve, more into color than I ever have in my life, I started when I was bored 4-7 grade summers, with nothing to do but learn to do "something"
I learned to code html one yr, make apps, draw, ..... 
drawing is what stuck to me, Writing is always mandatory growing up 
but the things they dont teach you in school I learned on the internet,
and yes Drawign was one, I remember my first art set, my Grandma bought me one year,
Between art and music my parents apllauded me 
Little did I know, it was a long journey to where I actually wanted to be
and from where I was back then.


I love drawing conceptual images, using imagery and realism to tell a story gives it a very surreal vibe, It took me two hours for the black and white and more time for the colors, but I like it a lot after I finished it
I end up using marker as a finisher on it.

Character Development

They key is proportions in theory it is      

an easy thing to say but doing it, is different, people draw with rulers 
to help with their dimensions, once you have done it long enough 
you wont need the rulers, it then becomes a habbit, but starting off??
I'm not going to lie to you, artist mentality is live above the law and out side the rules, because we think outside the box, but truly, Art has rules as well, if you want to round yourself out practice at least 30 minutes a day with a ruler and you will see a lot, you may even began 2d and 3d perspective drawings by yourself, which for me was a hard concept to master when you are self taught, 
Realism and photography both help master the concept, but actually 
drawing,
"wash , rinse, and repeating,"
will help you master this quicker,
Once you got the lines down everything else is a piece of cake!!

Enviroment and perspective are importand factors to character development, simply because the development part, is the personality of the figure, what are they like?, What do they do, where do they go?
Pictures should answer these questions,
it doesn't matter how, because no one can see the mind of an artist until it's on the paper, so make sure it's clear, concise, cohesive, use rules, 
it's for the eye of the beholder.!
