Starting arting


I am pretty slack when it comes to art. mainly because I find art yanno, hard. 😛 Which is dumb, because I find writing hard too and that doesn’t stop me. Not for long, anyway.

So I’ve begun a project I’m calling art365, which is basically to make a piece of art everyday for a year. It doesn’t have to be amazing, huge, or professional. It needs to exist. It can be a sketch, a doodle, a painting, a piece of folded paper. As long as I have created something that I consider art, my goal is met.

I’m two days in, and so far I’ve played with oil pastels and sharpie.


Day 1: Neither Fish Nor Fowl.

As you can see, I’ve not really used oil pastel before, and I didn’t realise that lighter colours do not show over the dark ones. 😛 So I learned something there.



Day 2: Lils and Nala.

This was just a quick sharpie sketch from the climax of WtSiRR, mainly because I love Lils and Nala so much and I couldn’t think of anything else to draw. I don’t often do figures because HARD. I hope by the end of the year I am better at them.


If anyone decides to join in, let me know, I’d love to see what you do.

  1. You’re so good! I adore the sharpie sketch. It’s perfect!

  2. You are very talented! Please post more of your creations.

    This is a great idea. I am getting a late start, but I will work on creating one piece of art per day. I took two years of art classes while I was an undergraduate. And many more since. I love art and creating art. I am not sure why I stopped. Thank you for this prompt!
