Myrto's Art Corner  New account @myrto.art

❀️ Important news ❀️ I have to warn you: wall of text incoming!!! So, when I first created this account, I thought it would be fun and interesting to have my journey recorded in one place. To see how my art evolved, how and when everything happened and for everyone to be able to scroll down and see where it all started. And it was! It was a lot of fun and I still like to look back and see how far I've come in just a couple of years! But... There is a huge but... Being where I am now, I feel like a fraud. I feel like I tricked all of you into following my journey thinking that you'd be seeing more of the same art from me and now I'm letting you all down. I understand why it's happening, I know this is not something everyone likes but I have no way to undo it. And honestly, I had to go through the stage of realism to get where I am now, I just hadn't realised that you didn't really sign up for this! Plus, I think I'm only just now gathering the courage to truly be me and ignore society's rules on who I should be. None of what you know is wrong, it's just not the whole truth. Society thinks that playing video games and D&D and living free of "musts" and "shoulds" at 34 is wrong. And I was persuaded it is. I had silenced the part of me who loves all these things because I would be criticised for it, because people would think I'm immature and stupid. But I don't care anymore πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I am who I am and my lifestyle isn't hurting anyone. I've never been happier in my life because I'm finally free to be myself and let the world know without thinking what they'll say! And I wish more people could do the same! But I can't do it here, I can't do it thinking that I'm dragging a bunch of people into something they don't like. So I'm starting fresh, with a new account. There, I can be me since day 1 and whoever joins will know what it's all about! If you do want to come along, I'd love to get to know you better and you to see the rest of me. If this is not your cup of tea, I absolutely understand and I'd have no hard feelings, that's the whole point of me starting over! So, maybe see you on the other side @myrto.art ! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Painfully slow progress πŸ˜… I've been fighting an allergy all week and I wasn't in the mood for anything 😐 I know I'll be busy this week too so I'll probably disappear again but I hope to come back with exciting news on Monday πŸ™‚ Apologies for the inactivity, I hope you all have an amazing week!!! πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•

I couldn't resist!! πŸ˜… You never know where the idea will come from and even if nothing else comes out of it, Inktober has at least given me this piece πŸ™‚ That's just the base layer for the background, I'll let it dry before moving on though! I may do a sketch or two for Inktober in the meantime!

We tend to hate what we don't understand.... Can you blame her for being guarded? πŸ˜‰ Day 13 of Inktober and the prompt is (you guessed it!) "Guarded". I've always wanted to be able to draw creatures that don't really exist, and Inktober seemed like a good opportunity to dive in and see if I can somehow make it work! At least it's stretching me to try new things and honestly... I'm seriously thinking of turning this one into an oil painting! No promises, just a thought that seems to be stuck in my mind since the moment I finished the sketch πŸ˜…

I cheated! I admit it! πŸ™Š I used colored pencils together with the markers and I regret nothing! I don't know if it's the materials, the lack of experience or just the style I'm trying to do but I can't make it work with just markers πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ So instead of giving up like I did the previous days, I decided to go for it and make it a mixed media thing. So here's day 12 of my Inktober, "Whale"

Day 6 of Inktober! πŸ’• The prompt today was drooling and I didn't want to draw actual drool so I thought I'd sketch my little man surrounded by bones which sometimes makes him drool πŸ˜‹ Thankfully he's not one to do that often but if the smell is good... well, he can't help it πŸ˜…

"The wolves won't be coming in your sleep tonight, the dreamcatcher will keep them away..." That's what I had written down next to my initial sketch for this piece and it's stuck in my mind ever since! For some reason, dreamcatchers and wolves are interconnected in my mind and this seemed like a good opportunity to put them together in a painting ☺️ The square gessobord was a challenge that led me to create something that I'd never have thought to create in a rectangular surface and I'm happy about that! I'll definitely try it again in the future if it's going to push me to do something different! I hope you like the result!!

I'm late I know!!! But it's still October 3rd so it's all good 😊 The prompt for day 3 of Inktober was "Roasted" and I definitely didn't want to sketch steaks or hamburgers so I ended up with this cutie! She's trying to roast a marshmallow with her own breath but she's making a bit of a mess πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I don't think it's possible to understand how much out of my comfort zone I am at the moment.... I'm scared to death every time I open the sketchbook for Inktober πŸ˜… But I do it anyway, isn't that the spirit? Once more, done with @fabercastellglobal Pitt pens on @strathmoreart toned grey paper!

Another print in the store! πŸ˜€ It's such a weird feeling, taking out older originals and looking at them after all this time, it's like they are different than what I remembered! Making the prints has been a great opportunity to look back ☺️ This one is now available, high quality, not going to fade for the next hundred years at least, and with free shipping as always! Of course the original is also looking for adoption πŸ˜‰ Take a look at the link in my bio if you're curious!

It has begun! Day 1 of Inktober, "Poisonous" is the official promt ☺️ Can you believe that it took me almost 1.5 hour to finish? πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ At least I know that I definitely need the practice 🀣 Shading with these pens is still a mystery to me, I hope to find out how it's done along the way... I used the @fabercastellglobal Pitt Pens on @Strathmoreart toned grey paper. The prompt was "poisonous" and I was torn between snakes and poison ivy so I decided to attempt to combine the two! It feels weird to post something like that, but I suppose during Inktober it is at least expected πŸ˜… Any help, tips and criticism would be greatly appreciated πŸ‘

On the easel... This week I'll be working on my diamond shaped painting ☺️ I didn't have much time to paint these past couple of days but it already started taking shape since it's only 8x8 inches! Hoping to get more work done and be more active with the new month and week and Autumn and all that amazing things 😜 Anyone else gets excited when the first of a month is Monday? πŸ˜‚
