Make Me Pure by Taracon Make Me Pure by Taracon
This is my first self-portrait ever. :blushes: And surprisingly, I really enjoyed doing it. :crazy:I started it yesterday after horrendous school, and finished today morning. And yes, I slept tonight. :D I guess I'm just getting more quicker and less lazy. Must be school. :dance:


I hope you like it

;)x

Thank you :) I'm not really thinking about subscribing or opening a print account. There is no purpose in having one if you don not have 1..(many zeros)..0 pageviews and such things. I would be selling like 0,5 print per mensem. :D But still, it's nice to know that someone would like to hang it on the wal,l like I have it on mine. :)

You're welcome. :) When I get a lot better at my craft I may put some of my work up as prints. That will be a while yet. For now, I'm just taking commissions from friends.

I think that people buy prints of something really special, creative, meaningful or just beautiful. Maybe someday I'll get to that level and start doing something like that. I wouldn't buy anything from me. :D well, maybe one or two drawings... but then I take a peep into other artists' galleries and I see a fine crop of better variations to which my ones fade. :shrug:
I wish you luck in getting better. And don't get stuck somewhere in between like I feel I have done. :) But that doesn't matter.

I know what you mean, but don't be too hard on yourself. There's always room to grow if you let yourself. :)
I know how you feel as some of my art pales in comparision, but those people often times have more training, or time to work thier art. Some people I think it's all they do.

You. Are. Very. Very. Very. Beautiful and talented. First when I saw it in your gallery I thought it was Kirsten Dunst (which I'm not sure if it has been said already). Even with the full view it still looks like Kirsten Dunst! It's insane! But, oh my gosh it's a gorgeous! drawing. The look of bliss on your face, the butterfly, the hair, the trees, the light that seems to be glowing off of you... I mean what's NOT to love about this? And, I just have to add, I say this to everyone who amazes me with this, but I envy you for your ability to draw hands so good. Even though it's simple, not too many shadows or anything (compared to the rest of the drawing)... I'll believe you if you tell me that it was hard =P.
The only thing I wanna say is that I'm not sure if you scanned this or not, but I'm not such a big fan of the full view. The smaller view gives the admirer ('cause let's face it...that's what we are) a much more beautiful look at the drawing. But either way, it's a beautifully gorgeous drawing, ma'am. :aww:

Wow, This is one of the best replies I ever got, and a very long one too. Did you really think it looks like Kristen? It the first time I've heard about this, honestly. XD And about the hand, well it isn't that hard. I can say it's easiesr than you think, I didn't used any small details there, no little wrinkles, no darker spots, or darker shadows. It's easy. :D
I'm very very gald you like this. Thank you for making the beginning of this year so good. :hug:

net nezinau, o i kokia specialybe nori stot? Mano tevas senai vda baiges, ex-rektoriu pazista, bet tik ex. O brolis i dizaina Vda istojo tik is 2 artai 3 karto, o baige ciurlionke. As niekad gyvenime i jokia dailes mokykla nejus, net burelio nelankius, nors sako, kad piesima islaikyciau, bet nesu tikra, nes jei kokia nesamone lieptu piest, tai susimetyciau ir sakes..
O kokius kursus lankai ir pas ka? ir kokius ten gipsus piesti reikia? Man sake obuolius reikia piest. :D
As kaip matai,visai be nuovokos. :blush:

aaa..... as tai kauniete, tai stosiu i kdi, dizaina (grafini arba daiktu(?) (naujoviskas baldziaus pavadinimas ) . kasmet kdi ir vda vyksta piesimo, tapybos ir atskiros spacialybes paruosiamieji. as siemet lankau tik piesimo nes piest nemoku :( (beveik) ten tik akademinis piesimas- jokiu obuoliu- ten padeda is pradziu paprastas gipsines formas (kubas, piramide ir t.t.) ir piest reikia, po to arbatinukas, po to mirusiu karviu portretai apsamanoje biski jei miske rasti, po to sunkesni gipsai, po to stiklai, suglamzyti popieriai draperos ir panasus shudas... nekenciu piesti is naturos... o tu tikrai piesima islaikytum nes piesi nerealiai, be to esi menininku seimoj ( as tai balta varna... nesamonem uzsiimu)- tau lengviau nes jie gali paaiskint, tai kas kad nelenkei dailes mokyklos... as ir tokio dalyko gyvenime nelankiau (dabar gailiusi)... vat

Jo, as tai irgi gailiuosi kad nejau. Tevas sake suris ir jega i ciurlionke nuves, bet taip ir liko, o galejau pramokt normaliaj. As tai irgi is naturos nemoku piesti visai, ciuju net popieriaus suglamzyto nenupiesciau, nekalbant jau apie ta padvesusia karve, ar ka ten.
Sheip tai dar net nezinau ar i architektura ar i dizaina rubu ar daiktu stot, nes tie kas dirba architektais tai sako kad arkliskas darbas, o babkiu skatikus gauni. :cry:
O tai tu dabar visa laika iki egzu lankyt tuos paruosiamuosius? jei tau dar tik 16, tai o blem, man irgi reik varyt pasimokyt ten, o as dar net neapsisprendus ka studyrint.
