First Drawing

Postby Sakura Blossom » Fri Oct 31, 2014 11:51 pm

....In awhile, I should add. I'm not the most 'artsy' person, but my family sort of is. I'm more musical and writing-oriented than my family (though my mom is musically gifted as well). I don't usually touch actual art, but my friend and I are going to try hanging out at our school's art center to either paint or draw recreationally. Today I ended up drawing this, and it took a total of three hours. I have to say, though, I'm really pleased with how it turned out!

I'm sorry for the horrible picture quality. It was done in pencil so I didn't think it'd scan well. Haha.

Very mandala-esque, I like it a lot. You did a fabulous job.
The flower in the center is nicely 5 pointed.
I think pencil is a great medium...one of my favorites.

Thank you! And yes, I was going for mandala! I just need to work on trying to keep everything even, but I think it was close enough! I'm excited to do some more~

Pencil is great! I went in with the intent to paint this, but instead got carried away drawing. Haha. I'm going to have to try some others. (:

So will you use it as a focal point for meditation?
I think because you made it, it will be more significant to your brain. I like doing mandalas with a focal purpose. That way I have a tool that helps me focus on one particular issue at a time.
It's really beautiful mz Sakura!

@FF: I'm actually thinking about turning it into a painting now, after transferring it to canvas. So it will probably be the focal point. Haha. I'm not super sure yet, but you're right! It's very significant to me. (:

@Adastra&Ace: thanks guys! It was fun to make it!

Thank you, Echo!

And haha. Not really. xD I have seriously been trying to get back into it, though, and learn how to play.
