My Art Place

My name is Veronica and I'm just trying to do what I love as a digital artist.

Many artists go out into the world looking for jobs and one of two things happens. They get a job and never have any time to do anything but work, or they don't get a job and spend all their time applying for more. Either way, personal projects and ideas tend to get put by the wayside. But when you're getting paid to do it, any artist can generally find the time to do something about it.

I always strive to create unique and interesting art as often as I can, and when encouraged, I tend to spit out countless pieces of art. Everything from creature designs, fanart, and digital pieces, to short animations and 3D models. With your help, I can supplement my income doing the only thing I know how: creating new and exciting art! So a follow and a few reblogs would help me out.

October Daily Draw - Day 7 (7/10/14 [13/10/14])

"Tearjerker Tuesday" - M for Mischa. I was thinking about cannibalism after my previous daily draw, since I’m playing catch up this week. Mischa’s death just hits a real emotional response for me and was one of the biggest things that drew me into the Hannibal Lecter series. If this was digital I would’ve done a lot more. Edited contrast with my phone.

"Ein Männlein steht im Walde ganz still und stumm" - A little man stands in the forest completely still and quiet.

October Daily Draw - Day 6 (6/10/14 [13/10/14])

"Massacre Monday" - Saturn devouring his son. One of my favourite paintings, by Francisco Goya. Here’s my interpretation based on multiple renaissance paintings of the subject matter. Edited contrast & such on my phone while I’m catching up with my daily draws.

October Daily Draw - Day 5 (5/10/14 [13/10/14])

"Scenic Sunday" - My neighbours have been planting their own park in the lot they own next door & I decided to draw a view I imagined would be seen from the end of their driveway once all their trees are grown & pretending they don’t have a giant wrought iron fence blocking anyone from coming near. Did contrast edits a bit on my phone so it’s a bit grainy. Catching up with my daily draws.

October Daily Draw - Day 4 (4/10/14 [12/10/14])

"Satanic Saturday" - I got stuck for a week on "Satire Saturday" because I couldn’t come up with anything satirical to draw, so I’ve officially changed it. This one will be more fun. I’ll be drawing satanic creatures or incarnations of the Devil on Saturdays. This scribble I did really late today so I’ll be catching up on my missed week tomorrow. This one’s of the ever awesome Mad Mountain King, Chernabog! I pumped up the contrast & other things just on my phone so it’s a bit grainy. Can’t wait to do more.

Just noticed that my tumblr posts have been getting posted way out of order somehow, despite being separated by days??? Sorry about that, but at least all the daily draws are still getting up. Thanks for following.

October Daily Draw - Day 3 (3/10/2014)

"Fearful Friday" - tried to post this last night but then my phone died & I said screw it & went to bed. The Stag & the Shrike. Based on the NBC Hannibal TV series. The dynamic between Lecter & Hobbs & how long after only one is left the other is still affecting his life, just gets my blood pumping. I was thinking about making the Shrike skewered on one of the prongs but decided their relationship was more symbiotic than that. The psychology in this show is one of the few things that now gives me some real suspense. Love it.

October Daily Draw - Day 2 (2/10/2014)

"Thesaurus Thursday" - some words mean other things & some idioms can be confusing to other cultures. Here’s a popular idiom that always conjured up some unique imagery. "Hell in a handbasket." I used to have some of those giant Mickey Mouse pants. I went ahead & inked it for Inktober while sitting in jury duty but regret not getting a pic of the pencils. Oh well. Future addition for my book of puns & idioms!

I quick inked the turkey vulture I drew yesterday for my Daily Draw since it’s Inktober & all, but it’s still mostly pencil because I did it at jury duty. Boo being an adult.

Seeing as how I still don’t particularly have any followers, based on the fact that a fav or reblog of my art is extremely rare, and seeing as how Doug Jones is a super awesome nice guy and favs everything with him in it, I’ve deduced a brilliant way to make myself feel better at any point in time. Draw more Doug Jones. Get fav’d. Smile that someone in existence actually likes my art. Use that boost in self-esteem to continue trying to actually do this for a living. Repeat constantly. Expect much more throughout the future.

October Daily Draw - Day 1 (1/10/2014)

"Walkabout Wednesday" - it’s vulture season in South Texas, so all I have to do to get a good view at nature is look out my bedroom window. Kind of a cheat, but I’m a bit too busy to actually go walkabout. We have blacks & turkeys in the lot out back today & this turkey vulture was the most immobile. Pose for me baby!

Follow & reblog to help me make a living! I’m relying on you guys not to pass up an opportunity to help a starving artist.
