And that is not necessarily a good thing here in Southwest AZ, because it is getting quite warm (good thing I'm used to it for the most part). On a happy note, it means only about a month to go until the afternoon storms in monsoon season come rolling in. I just love sitting out and watching those things. The storm chaser in me again...Three Falls Temple
Anyways, I was bored last night, so I did a quicky little sketch with brushes that I picked up. Initially, the sketching was indeed very quick (hence speed paint style). When it came to hand drawing the temple itself and the coloring / mood of it all, I took way too long though. I see artists like concept-on-mac and phoenix06 doing their thing and I get tired of not getting anything done myself! I do need a tablet to get to the meaty stuff more quickly, but I think the style of this latest piece is just right for a mouse user. Now I have a little bit more motivation in painting despite the slight handicap of it.DeviantART Group: StorySpec
You may have noticed that I'm in a group now, storyspec.deviantart.com
. I have actually created this group to help out the process of growing the community and getting people into talking about stories! Having this lonely account by itself just lacks the umph if you know what I mean. So why not put more importance into this than just regular art making?
I must confess, however, I have no idea where I'm going to take it. What kind of art should I have in it? Literature? Favorites (as opposed to Gallery)? What will be the best way to talk about the stories of DeviantART? I'm sure it'll all work out fine, so I'm not going to worry about it. Let me know if YOU have any ideas though!
