Dripping Into The Bowl by Redcockatiel Dripping Into The Bowl by Redcockatiel
Drawing done with sharpie markers. I was in a mood to do something a little different and colorful.

Thank you! This piece turned out better then I had hoped it would.

POSITIVELY fascinating.  I can hardly believe this was sharpies.  The colors are incredibly vivid and I like all the different shape elements you have in the piece.  We have the clear-cut vertical lines and then the more spontaneous but still organized layers of drops.  Colors are contrasted very well, with blues often going next to pinks in the same column, and so forth.  Through all this chaos of colors, contrasts, and shapes, though, I can also clearly vividly see the eye and face you drew.  Altogether this is a very fascinating piece and incredibly artfully done.  I cannot conceptualize like that.  Whatever mood you were in, I love what it accomplished!

Thank you so much! Surprisingly sharpies give pretty consistant vibrant colors. Normally I just play around with them and do odd things with them such as anthro and little cartoons. I was in a pretty good mood I was housesitting and couldn't bring a lot of my art supplies. Being that I had cable internet and air conditioning privilages which I don't have at home I was in heaven. I really didn't have much idea beforehand how it would turn out. I just started with the eye and kinda went with it from there.

I have played some with sharpies and have enjoyed them a bit, but I've never explored them that much.  You might be inspiring me to pull out my old set... hopefully some of them still have juice...

Definitely give them a try. I have had mine a while and decided to give them a shot. I really didn't try to think too hard on what I was going to do. I just thought about it briefly kinda did a few things to relax and then started. Being most of my art doesn't involve lots of cheerful bright colors it helped a lot.

I can't say I'm one who usually works for bright colors, either, but it would be interesting to expand out there and see what I can do with a naturally bright medium.

I didn't think I would do very well with them at first. But I kinda just went with it and let it flow. Though it will probably just still play a lesser role in my overall art. I don't stick to just the same style as doing the same thing over and over can become stagnant and depressing. One day I might feel like drawing animals another surrealism or fantasy or anthro or whatever comes to mind. trying new things with one area may also help with another

two diffent drawings but same concepts used on both. Miseration is the older piece.

It really is fun to see variety.  I get bored, too, sometimes, though because I don't do as much artwork, my style and focuses tend to change more slowly and more subtly.  I tend to get different focuses and then move on.  For instance, I drew a lot of animals during one period.  Then I focused a lot on humans.  There's been one phase I drew a lot of hands specifically.  But it's not quite as much of variations as I see in your works!

I sometimes draw one thing myself. Occasionally I will be in the mood to draw something over and over. Then something else. But then later on I may actually combine both into one piece. Such as fish added with a human. Though I learned to be comfortable doing art and not worrying so much as how it will turn out. This helps me decide what can be changed or altered to suit another piece. I sometimes get something right that can be used in many works that are totally different such as shading highlighting etc. As I have been busy with my abstract lately I still use the same elements I use in my surrealism but just tweakea bit to fit  my new pieces.
