Carciphona - Too Late :iconshilin:shilin 61,037 5,060


It been at least a year since I've posted to this account.  It's not that I haven't been doing drawing and painting.  On the contrary, I've been quite busy on that front.  Guess I just mostly post to Facebook.

Lately, I feel that my painting has taken to a whole new level.  I have yet to post my latest and "greatest", despite the fact that it's not quite finished.  But that piece is something different.  It evokes a sort of emotion- fear you may say- to it and it is mostly attributed to a slight mistake in color mixing.  But I'm sure it's just more than that.  I'm sure that I've finally hit a realism that I've never achieved before, so real, that it strikes fear into the viewer's heart.  We'll let other people be the judge of that.

In addition to drawing and painting, I've also been busy taking up photography on a more serious level.  I've always been a shutterbug and I've always loved taking photos.  I love capturing the moment.  Through the years I've been getting better and better equipment.  But I noticed that more and more I coveted sharper photos and higher quality, in particular, quality in low light.  At the end of last year, I picked up a DSLR and since then have been getting more "serious" into Photography.  I'm far from good, and my DSLR is far from being the top of the line either, but my hunger for tack sharp photos have been somewhat satiated.  And in the last few months, I've noticed that there is a certain quality of photography that I noticed my photos had that I haven't achieved before.  I've seemed to reach a certain milestone (perhaps attributed to better quality equipment) but for once, I really feel that my photos were truly worthy of showing to the world.  A quality that rarely even my painting was able to achieve.

So I've cleaned house, taken down (many) old pieces and leaving some of the more recent, better pieces.  I will slowly begin to fill the gallery back up with better stuff.  And what used to be a primarily anime fanart account will now be repurposed to a macro photography and portrait/ traditional painting account.  I just wish they'd let me change my user name...
