I mean, I probably know my problem.
For some reason when creating digital, I always have the "This has to go faster than that" thought in the back of my head. While traditionally... it just flows on its own and I take the time I need for it.
If someone reads this, is this just me or do you have that being-rushed-feeling with digital as well?
These past few days (or weeks) I always tried to draw on the ipad - it is convinient, I have every colour available, and no paper to throw away if it doesn't turn out the way I wanted.
But for some reason, whenever I draw digitally, it never looks the way I want it - which makes me frustrated after a short while.
Today I picked up a pencil and sketched a portrait on a scrap of paper - why is it so much easier to sketch with on a piece of paper...?
One of my art goals this year is to improve on values and being more bold with colours. Another is to be able to create nearly realistic digital paintings, but that one is for the future 😀
Today I took some time to do a photostudy of this photo https://unsplash.com/photos/T5LmLI8nmBQ with some unusual colors. I stopped at this point, since I was nearing the frustration mark - good place to stop I figured :) I’ll try to do one or two more of these in the upcomming week

Still no job, and freelancing has pretty much dried up completely.
If you've got a couple bucks spare I could use the help. :/
(And thank you. I hate to ask *again*, and I can't wait until I'm the one able to *send* money to folks in need. #transcrowdfund )
Today is my Masto-birthday :D
Because my first day on this plattform has been so amazing, with people being nice and everything, I wrote down when I registered on here last year. And well, it is no a whole year that I've joined mastodon.art :)
Thank you for being such a nice place, even though I'm not as active these past few weeks. :)
I wanted to post a few photos for a while now. These photos have been taken in april last year.
I love that time of year, when it is about to get warm, but it's still also cold. You admire the sunshine, because it warms you up. The birds are starting to sing, and it just creates this warm calmness all over.
I'll try to post other photos I've taking since last year during the next week. I'll also post these on my pixelfed account first @julloyart #photography #nature #spring
Things no one warned me about when I came to Mastodon:
. You'll use CWs for things that aren't triggers
. You'll crush and hard for many fedi peeps
. You'll shitpost, eventually make an account just for that
. You'll care about strangers online and they shall no more be like strangers but a family instead
. There'll be at least one person telling you to go to sleep already
. You can always ask for help and help shall make your way, one way or another
To be continued, I'm sure!
Today I took a beautiful sketch by my friend Simone (https://twitter.com/Simonemaendl) and repainted it in VR - here's a little look around. All design credit goes to her.
It's truly amazing to stand right inside a painting and become part of the world you just created.
Hello Mastodon 👋 My name is Julia and I've introduced myself before, but it was time for a new introduction :)
I like #art, I like creating in every form. I do #traditionalArt (#WaterColor #coloredPencil ) just as much as #digitalArt (#3D #krita #procreate )
I've got a webblog and do some #webdesign and #graphicdesign for it.
I also like to try new ways of creating like #needleFelting #bookbinding #origami #caligraphy
