I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

©GeistmausSomething I’ve been wanting to try and I’m really pleased with the outcome. I wanted to keep the ‘rough’ look of a sketch and try something more watercolor’ish. Also, I wanted to move away from the ‘sexy bombshell’ look my girls have been having and tried to go for a more natural, simple figure with a pose that seemed more genuine.

Poison IvyCharacter ©DCArt ©GeistmausHurray; finished her! I wanted to keep it close to the animated series as possible while adding my own little flare…I think I was channeling Jessica Rabbit in the process. One day I’ll get a solid coloring method; right now it seems like I’m doing more experimenting halfway through, but that’s how you learn, right?
