Hi,

I'm fully aware that there's a less than 50% chance that anyone (unless they're following my page on here) will read this and/or care. However I will still post this and explain the reasons why I've begun giving up with art or at least posting it.

For my GCSE results I received an E grade for my course in Art. This is one of the main reasons why I've started questioning whether or not there's a point in me drawing. I know that I'm being a little dramatic but it was a bit of a kick in the private parts when I saw this grade. A D grade wouldn't have had the same effect but an E just hurt. I understand that I'm not the best artist and I know I've not exactly practiced but that's mostly been due to busyness with coursework in sixth form/college - another reason for my questioning. Although recently I've drawn a couple of drawings (which I may post after this journal entry) I feel that I'm not really committing to drawing. I see wonderful pieces of artwork on here and other sites and I've aspired to reach a point where I too can draw/paint as well as those artists. But I've no motivation any more. Even back in GCSE I wasn't entirely sure if there was a point. Plus I'm a perfectionist which doesn't exactly help the situation. Urgh, I just don't know what to do and I've still yet to develop my own style which is frustrating.

My plan for this summer is to attempt to discover my own style and practice drawing more. If by the end of it I'm not completely happy with my stuff I'll decide what to do then. At this point I'm rambling (I think that's the correct word) so I'll finish off here. The point I was trying to say was that I'm confused about what to do about art and whether there's a point in committing more to it and carrying on.

Signing off,

Kiera.
The Faceless Ones by atomickiera
The Faceless Ones
Yes, I did entitle these with the same title as the third Skulduggery Pleasant book. ;) But yeah I recently drew these four girls with no faces. Like a week or so ago. I didn't include the faces because a) I couldn't get the facial features right and b) in the end I felt quite lazy. But I like them as they are, in a way I suppose it leaves you to imagine what they might look like. I don't know, I may just be talking nonsense but either way, here are four of my latest drawings. I haven't drawn anything else since my Ariel drawings.

It's Been A While by atomickiera
It's Been A While
It's really has been a while since I've drawn anything so whilst watching various films yesterday afternoon I decided to change that. And I did. Granted, the quality of this photo isn't that great and it doesn't show the shading very well so it's doesn't look amazing, but I think I did well. For once I didn't use a grid in order to draw her and for the first time in a while I wasn't drawing someone I knew from a photo or anything. It just happened haha. When I look at it (not the photo I've just uploaded but the real thing) I can't help but point out she looks like a crossover between Lena Headey and Kate Winslet.

Hey, I'm a crazy, internet obsessed teen, I love to draw as well as see other people's work. I doubt I will post often but I hope to do so soon. I'm beginning to get into painting more however I'm not that confident and my work isn't as brilliant as most people's. I hope that anyone who views my deviations and profile will enjoy what I have managed to produce. I am not a professional so keep that in mind ;)
