Day 01 - It’s a Pebble! x)

So to start off my new tumblr, I decided to throw down a quick rant :)

Well my names Steven Bizarro, I’m 22, and what I like to call a fallen artist. At this point in my life I’m not sure what I should do or where I’m headed. But one thing I can guarantee about my future is, I dam sure will inspire beyond all thought when i get there.

That’s my goal and a promise. 

I don’t blog, so this is ridiculously new to me in many ways. So why the creation of a tumblr you ask? Well, I’m creating this blog for one purpose and one purpose only. >:| 

And that’s hopefully to jump start my mental state through a dedicated art blog on study and creativity. This will be something of a daily exercise “wake-up call”, to keep me focused in moving forward in my craft.

So to start off, with every coming day, I plan to throw down a quick or time consuming, big or small, a heavily detailed or simple, colored or not piece of art that pushes my knowledge, creativity and skill to create and reach levels I could have never dreamed of.   

First Piece of the Day

This is a concept art for a game making forum I’m a part of. It’s a Rock type monster that carries a stone above his head to fend off enemies. This piece actually stressed me out more then it should have cause I couldn’t get his right hand correct. Still not truly satisfied with the final outcome, but I’ve been teaching myself to avoid getting stuck on small things things for too long. I’ve noticed If you take too long to finish a piece, you most likely wont ever get around to completing it. Also, it was just a concept art -_- so straight out, stress’in way too much over something that’s just used for reference is just plain ridiculous haha xP

Art #02 & #03 - Dedication You! >:(

Today I realized that staying dedicated to this ArtBlog is gonna be a lot more tougher then I first realized. Some people are just naturally busy, and responsible for shit. So of course things get pushed back, stuff get’s forgotten and before you know it. It’s the Next Day. And your ArtBlog has skipped a day and is late another xP

Lets try not to allow that to happen anymore x/

Art #03 / Aug29,2010

Today I choose to finish up a commissioned ConceptART I really need to get done.

  • Title: Drake
  • Time: 2hr
  • Lesson: Artistic Blending (Well thats what I like to call it :D)
  • Note: This was just a really fun piece to do. I’m 100% positive the wings are wrong….but I really don’t feel like fixing them x) Still a lot I can finalize, but it would be unnecessary as I’m going to have to re-size it to a much smaller resolution size anyways. :P

Art #02 / Aug28,2010

Today I decided to go with a Copy Art exercise (which is basically finding an image and copying it to the best of my abilities)

This piece I choose to use as my copy art reference is of some Asian Actress, (or I think she’s an asian actress x) ) She was in an Ad of a Beautiful Peoples website. She’s ridiculously adorable in this picture so I wanted so badly to capture that in my copy art.

  • Title: My Fail at A Gorgeous Asian Girl
  • Time: 2 hrs ( once 2 hrs hit I just…I just stopped..sad -_- )
  • Lesson: Sketch a proportioned face first! Make sure image is readable x(
  • Note: I realized fairly quickly after starting it that the reference image was way too small a resolution for me to copy it accurately. This made distinguishing small details impossible, and left a lot to my knowledge of what should be where. But with that came small subtle changes, and ultimately the loss in the beauty of why I choose the CopyArt in the first place. I had to re-size and shape her face soo much that it was killing me….so after 2 hrs of what looks like I could have done in 30 mins….I just quit xP Fail

Steven B. - Serpent  Monster

Art #04 / Aug30,2010

For this piece I tried to redeem myself by attempting another CopyArt facial study. This picture used is of the gorgeous Katy Perry who looks fckin ridiculously adorable rockin the 60’s & 70’s iconic POPArt, a surprised emotion. :D 

  • Title: Katy Perry POPArt
  • Time: 2 hrs.
  • Lesson: A sketch helped a lot more for proportions, though not much more x(
  • Note: Dude, this piece killed me. I guess I just need a lot more practice on my paintin & blendin skills. I attempted a well detailed sketch to start me off, (didn’t help much that I just wasn’t in the mood to draw :/ ) and with that I threw over top my colors and worked at them. I didn’t have to correct my proportions as much as the horrific fail of an asian girl 2 days ago, but still struggled to an identical duplicate. One Day… :/
