Say what?! In my personal experiences, the general public thinks that art skill = immediately able to make a career in art. Well, gosh, I wish that were true, but it ain't! Here's a rough video essay from The Art Critter elucidating the topic. Sorry for the clickbaity title. Just tryin'a survive. This is my first Art Critter video, so thanks for watching, and thank you for the kind and constructive feedback!
Hey guys! Welcome back for another video! In this exciting installment, we have... an unwanted phone call! Ugly floors! Silly voices! AND MORE! Thanks for watching! Get exclusive videos not seen by any other human eyeballs when you subscribe to my Patreon!
In this piece, I wanted to experiment with lighting and harshly defined shapes. I hope you enjoy the progress video.
The coming of this itty bitty snow dog (he's about 2.5"x3.5", the same size as a Pokemon card, or I guess a credit card if you're a boring adult) stemmed from a few things. As most art does.
First, I love my dog. Baldr is great and good and has a fuzzy face and is a GOOD BOY, YES HE IS, YES HE IS
Second, there's a local art show coming up called Itty Bitty, and the perimeter of the piece can't be more than 24". I had to remember "math" from Ye Olde School Days to determine how to calculate perimeter. That's 6"x6" or smaller, counting the frame! I love making tiny art, though. Not a sacrifice.
Third, I bought some new "oops" paints from the hardware store. Spooky purple and sweet n' sour pink being key players in this little piece. Nothing makes me want to make art more than getting new colors to play with!
Speaking of new art supplies, I also bought a small desk easel, which I also broke in with this piece. If you want me to do an unboxing review of it I can totally do that if there's interest I'M ONLY KIDDING, I ALREADY DID AN UNBOXING, CHECK IT OUT
Thanks for reading, guys! See you next time!
