some line art from a watercolor sketch I am working on.

Once I get the courage to finish it I will post the final product.

For me at least art block is mostly fear of failing

If you had to pick only 2 colors to draw/color with forever, what would you choose?

@Curator what a fun idea!

Here is my work space along with my art buddy for the day who is so very helpful!

It's very messy currently but I like it I'm currently working in my sketchbook and am doing a paint by number to relax. My cat is keeping me company her name is Jazzabell

Afternoon everyone, I was learning how to draw a new cartoony style. Might still need some improvements but for now I like it '-')b

What's your favourite surface to work on, if you're a creator who paints/draws? Mine is smooth-heavyweight paper, particularly this kind pictured. I have pads in three sizes XD I love the super smooth surface of hotpress paper too, but I've found it's difficult to use an eraser on if I'm lifting up pencil after doing inkwork - the top layer of the paper starts breaking off.

Came across a tree on the way home yesterday and decided to attempt a basic version of it.


@Curator I just saw it now! Oh dear...

Almost everything that I do I do on my desk, and probably in my computer

Certainly a messy desk

You can see my pc, many glasses, some socks where I keep more glasses, some aquarel material

@Curator What a fun prompt! Thanks to everyone who shared a glimpse into their creative spaces. =)

I like to keep my workspace relatively clear. It helps me focus on my task at hand. I keep my pens and other crafting materials stored away when I'm not actively using them. (My camera lives nearby, but was used to take this photo.)

I push aside the peripherals to make room, as needed. I have a new keyboard arriving soon; hopefully a tablet will be added to my toolkit, too!

@Curator New photo with a bit of a different perspective just after I finished work for today (not an artist as a day job). And another picture even further away (other corner of my living room) - what would you call that little office nook? In german it's called "Erker" and I thought the english word oriel would be the correct translation for that, but I'm not sure.

The drawers have 'stuff' - all those pencil cases are colouring pens (Copics, Faber Castell, etc.). The roll up holds less used drawing pens. Ink collection (mostly metallics/pearlescent) in the first drawer. Also in the drawers are gouache, watercolours, palettes, big tin of Prismacolor Premiere pencils, stencils, Copic refills, twine, various types of glue and glazes, anything vaguely art-related that I probably never use and should throw out XD

Now that the ownership transfer is official and everyone knows who I am, I can share my desk without people going 'Hey wait a minute...' ☺️

My most used drawing pens are in the mug on the right, the purple pencil case has my 'tools' (compasses (compii? 🤔 ), protractor, etc), misc colouring pens and pencils in the pen holder, and all my pads up to A4 size in the vertical trays.

Here's your image of the day! Use it as sketching practice, reproduce it in your own style, incorporate it in something bigger, or just be inspired by it ^.^

Share your creations! <3
