Experimenting with Digital Art on ArtRage

I saw a post that artbychristinemallabandbrown did the other day about a digital art android program called ArtRage. I loved the art she posted, so I decided to give it a try! I’m still very much learning how the program works and just fooling around, but here are my first few abstract artworks from ArtRage!

Ready for Halloween – 2 Artworks

I’m ready for Halloween! My favorite time/holiday of the year! All the stores already have their Halloween stuff out, so I can share my Halloween art, right? Here are a couple pieces I made last Halloween. I’m sure I’ll have more Halloween art for this year soon!

If you like my art, make sure to check out the pieces I have for sale on Ebay!

Spray Paint Canvas Art

Lately I’ve gotten into spray paint art. I guess it was a visual artform I had never tried before, so the challenge of learning it appealed to me. It is actually much harder than I imagined lol. Learning how to control the spray just right so that you don’t pool the paint, put on too much paint, or get it all over yourself (as spray paint is a pain in the ass to get off your skin).

For my first few paintings I went entirely abstract, just so I could play around and get a feel for the art medium. Here are my first few paintings, which are on canvas panels:

3 Pop Art Pets Marker Paintings

I came across a Crayola marker set at CVS that I used to create the below artworks. I really like the way these markers give a painting-like feel to the pictures and how the markers show a variety of shades when used. The kit only came with 5 markers (brown, orange, white, green, and pink), but I was able to make the pictures look almost life-like with them.

Another Photo Award and Ranking!

Are you sick of hearing about my new photography obsession? I hope not lol, but when I get into something, I REALLY get into it. Blame autism 🙂

So, I posted two days ago about winning my first crowd favorite award on Photocrowd. Well guess what? I won another one! This time for this photo (in a contest about “Naturally Eerie” things):

Oh, and another cool thing, when I started on the photography site around 3 weeks ago or so, I ranked in the 20,000’s (they rank all photographers by success markers on the site, such as contest wins, crowd opinion, likes, etc.), last week I moved up to the 12,000’s, and this week I’m up to the 5,000’s!

Like the Jeffersons, I’m moving on up!

First Photography Award on Photocrowd

Recently I told you guys I had really gotten into photography and was entering contests on a site called Photocrowd. Yesterday I found out that I had won my first award on the site! It isn’t a major award, but I won a crowd favorite award for being in the top half of the crowd choice for a contest about “The Abstract Universe”. Here is the photo that won the award:

The photography talent on Photocrowd is amazing (many are professionals), so I am honored to even compete with them and come close to the top of any contest!
