ACEO Art Collection (from various artists)

After creating a few ACEO cards myself, I have been inspired to have my own collection of ACEO cards from other artists! It makes me feel more involved with the art network and I also feel connected to like minded people! It is amazing how people have decided to create small pieces of easily collectible work!

I only a have a few but I intend to collect far more! Here is what I have so far.

Inspired by Behance! Working on my portfolio.

Hello! It has been a long time since I dedicated time for art. Recently, It has been all about work, watching films and going out. All is good, but then something at the back of my mind told me that I need to work on my creativity. I felt the need to re-launch my career and focus my energy on art. This sudden inspiration came from viewing Behance. There are so many artists and designers out there that are so talented!

As tempting it is to quit my current job and indulge in art, I will have to do this in my spare time. So I thought that the best thing to do is work on my portfolio.  Looking at my collection of art pieces, it seems that I have far too many varied types of designs but none that I would showcase. Maybe I got bored of my old pieces or I just need something fresh and new. Then I remembered my Squibbulb creations! I used to love digitally creating those little critters and I thought I would carry on where I left them. You can see my previous Squibbulb creations to see what I mean.

Most of my Squibbulb critters were created using MyPaint and that was a long time ago! The last digital pieces I have made were done in Gimp which I think is a far more superior software. Then again, I want to work on my portfolio and not start from scratch so I decided to download MyPaint and showcase the technique I used in that software.

I started on another piece today and I think I need some practice. I may have worked on too big a canvas (3000 x 3000 rather than 1000 x 1000) which meant that it takes longer to finish the piece. Nevertheless, it has been 2 years since my last “Likha and Squibbulb” so I suppose it will definitely take some time to get used to it again. I used to follow a procedure which is now all over the place! LOL. As you can see, the Squibbulbs aren’t there yet. They will be there when it is all done!

I can’t wait to finish this piece but for now, I need to go to sleep. If you see the time in the screen shot, it is now 03:06am!

Good night everyone!

P.S. Check my Behance account and my updated website!
