Wow... This is absolutely astounding. You captured the emotion and determination in the moment. I absolutely adore this not only because of my love of the American Revolution but because it is most definitely quality work.

Thanks fifth! I appreciate your taking a look and leaving a comment! It is especially nice to hear such nice words from such an accomplished artist such as yourself!

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you! I have been in the process of moving from Cali to Florida over the last couple of weeks. I don't actually have my computer here yet, but I bought a little netbook so I could at least have internet access!

How long have you been drawing now?

...oh, and I think I've loved drawing ever since I was able to hold a pencil (aged 5, maybe?) ... and since then I drew from time to time, and will always do. =)

You're very welcome!
(And thank you so much for this incredible compliment! :blushes:)

Hope everything went well with the move? =)

np on the compliment! It is well deserved!!

Hmmmm...well, actually the move has been quite a mess. But such is life sometimes! I was expecting to have my computer before and I kind of feel lost without it. But it will get here eventually!

I really like your piece inspiration - but what are watercolor crayons?! I have never heard of such things before! Are they basically like colored pencils?

Thanks again!!...

Oh well, you're right, such is life sometimes - at least you finally managed to move somehow! :D

Watercolour crayons can be used just like normal crayons - and after drawing you can use water on them, which makes the colours disperse - this way the image will look smoother, and you can also mix colours quite well.
Don't know, maybe colours like that don't even exist in the USA - there is a German company called FABER CASTELL, which produces them. I love these crayons. =)

Lol! I think that it is cool that you're doing art with crayons! It is kind of unique! I don't think that I run into many people here who are crayon artists! Maybe you should start a group for them!!

I know that I have seen watercolor pencils here in the US, though I have never tried using them. I think perhaps they are somewhat the same as the crayons you are talking about.

Either way, I think that it is amazing that you were able to draw your Inspiration piece that well using crayons! Do you use colored pencils also?

Oh there are many people who use crayons - I mean coloured pencils when I say crayons, not chalk or whatever you're thinking of, so sorry for the misunderstanding! =)

Hey Pandora!

Thanks for taking a look and leaving a comment! I appreciate the support! So I took a look at your gallery and had a question. It seems to me you have some really awesome pieces - but it looks like the camera/scanner kind of messes with the color some. Do you not color adjust any of the art that you post?

I haven't really figured out how to do that with my scanner.

I was referring to using a program like Photoshop once you had the picture scanned in.

Hey LPG,

Thanks for taking a look and commenting! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond! I've been in the middle of moving across the country!

If you don't mind my asking, why no avatar?

Hey,

that's alright :) I know how it is to move.

Simply, cause I can't make it work, otherwise I would have one. A friend is designing one for me so maybe I can get it work then, idk. I'm really stupid when it comes to computers. :)

LPG,

Oh! Well that is cool that your friend is going to make you one! I was going to offer - but I guess I was beaten to it!

So if you don't mind my asking, why is your name LonelyPhantomGirl? Do you feel like you are a ghost?

You're the third offer, actually :)

When I made my DA account I was struggling emotionally and felt lonely and invisible, thus the name.

How do you make your fractal designs?
Reply
:iconfennecfoxes3:
FennecFoxes3 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2010
It's not fractal art, unfortunately. I've been trying to do fractals with a program called Apophysis 7, but it's too complicated for me.

The stuff I do is called abstract. I do that in Photoshop with the different filter effects. Here's a tutorial on how I did most of mine [link] There's a lot of tutorials for Abstract Art on Youtube. I wouldn't know how to do it if you have anything other than photoshop.

Thanks Takada! I appreciate you taking a look, my friend! It is a quick sketch, though! This, for example, is a full drawing: [link]

This one took about 3 hours, Schizophernia took about 40!
