Living Dead Dog by dogcanjump Living Dead Dog by dogcanjump
Here we go again.
Another bunch of ugly lookin' random images which happen to be my entry for the Wacom: Bring Your Vision to Life - Dreams Contest.

Brush, ink, Photoshop, some Painter... whatever...
As you can see from this piece my dream is to really suck at drawing. As you can also see my dream came through. Haha.
The font used is Anime Ace.


P.S. Just for the record this has nothing to do with any of that emo stuff or whatever it's called.

Aww! Dude. What do you mean your dream is to suck at drawing and that it came through? What's not to like about the drawing, here?

I just dislike most of my drawings but I guess this one turned out okay.

You dislike most of your drawings? Dude, come'ere. *(Smack!) Upside your head.*
Some people don't know what they have until they lose it.

Yup. That's why avoid looking at them much.*ducks*:P Some of them are okay I suppose. I like sketches better.

Me too. Sketches have the life. In his Sketchbook 1,Juan Jimenez talks about the difficulty, or mystery, of preserving the life of the sketch through to the finish, or transferring it to the finish.

Some stay close the life in the original sketch; some polish and refine and make that an art in itself. I'm with the former and I suppose you consider yourself in that group too. I'm only now starting to appreciate it, in terms of the history of illustration. Some of the best have been in this group.

Yup, it is very hard to stay true to sketch, to keep the same feeling, to keep that life. Like I was told once sketch is something that is spontaneous, it just comes out of you while with a finished drawings you gotta pay attention to dozens of little things and it's easy too loose that whole feeling that sketch has.

Yes. yes.
And the horror or it. . . the horror of it, as I see it, is that the life of the sketch has to killed - sacrificed on the altar of the art - to be re-created in the finish. I don't think it is transferred, or preserved, as some say. I think it has to be analyzed in one medium, then completely re-created as something different in the finish.

The only way to do that is by understanding and expressing its rhythm. In a sketch the rhythm may be a hodge-podge of flow and vibration that can never be directly transferred to inks. That "life" is lost. But it serves as a model for inking that is (because of the nature of the medium) deliberately organized and streamlined.

Ink always reduces the subject matter, which can result in a sterile technical execution. But, in the hands of an artist, it sparks new life by adding something that overshadows the sum of the parts.

I like what you're saying, about the life of a sketch not being preserved but rather re-created in another medium. So true. And yes, that is hard to achieve. Especially in inks.

Powerful. Technically clever, too, the way you move the eye across the page.
