Storytyme: Scout Robyn by mynti Storytyme: Scout Robyn by mynti
Part of my new "Storytyme Collection" for my show in May.

23 hours
Liquitex Professional Acrylics, Imitation Gold Leaf and Silver Iridescent Acrylic on canvas
12"x12"

Detail of her face: [link]

The story behind this is a long one, but here's a summary of what is going on here:

Robyn is a scout in a different world much like ours - she is part of the royal guard following the prince while he attends the elite royal academy. Robyn likes to swing up onto a high window in one of the many towers in the academy complex and look through her seascope to check for threats or attacks on the school while the prince is attending. She likes getting into trouble and then getting out of it again - a perfect temperament for her job description.

No se que decir, está perfecto. El tema, los colores, el angulo, los detalles, todo. Incluso el rostrod e la chica sobre sale y destaca un poco del resto. Notable :D

It just takes practice! I took 7 figure drawing classes, an anatomy class, and I draw a lot of people at cafes, train stations, and parks. After all that, I should be pretty decent :D

Drawing is the foundation to painting though... most times.

I understand! I call that "Blank Canvas Syndrome" but other artists have other terms for the same feeling, I'm sure. I used to get that a lot when I was first starting - the only cure is by doing and not being so precious with your materials. If you invest in a digital tablet, you will find you learn faster because all the canvas and paint is free, there is the undo option (which makes you more daring and bold) and you are less likely to feel personally miserable if something doesn't turn out the way you wish it would!

Time, practice, and patience. The time to get there is the most daunting hurdle - it took me 10 years to learn how to draw figures easily (and it's not easy, by any stretch, I just feel more comfortable doing it now) and about 5 years to feel comfortable doing landscapes. Still lifes are the easiest to draw from life, and also were my foundation - I did years and years of traditional (mostly graphite and charcoal drawings) still life and self portraiture before I hit high school.

I believe that anyone, and I mean anyone, can draw. If you want it, it is yours. It just takes a lot of effort, so you really really have to want it.
