My name is DeM0nFiRe. I will be creating art for the Google Open Participation Contest. Naturally, I want one of those snifty shirts, but I also want to make something that people will actually enjoy looking at. For tis reason, I am going to try to show you guys the steps I take as I take them so you guys can tell me what you think of them. Now, every with every piece I do the steps I take will vary, and I may need to repeat some steps, but the general progression is similar to a degree:
>Brainstorming - This is where I try to imagine what I want the look and feel of the piece to be. (This step is a bit hard to share with you guys since I can't really tell
you a picture)
>Preliminary Pencil Sketches - This is where I do the very rough shapes to get down the layout on paper. This is also where I make the first attempts to get the proportions on everything right. The lines in this step will be very light, and they'll be very ugly. ^^
>Detailed Penciling - This is where I start to add in the details to the picture. Although, I try not to do too much shading yet because the final layout may change still.
>Computer Touch-up(Optional) - If I plan on making it neater and sharper in the computer, this is where I would do that. I would also do some coloring of it now if it was to be colored.
>Pencil Finalizing(Optional) - If I decided not to use a computer to finish it, now is when I would try to sharpen lines and erase and clean old marks. Now is when I would do any shading I was going to do. Chances are, if I'm finalizing in pencil, I do not plamn to color it. My experience with any hand coloring tools tells me to just avoid them all together.
Ok, so I hope to get to know alot of you guys through this. Beofre I start this art, I have a few questions:
Am I actually allowed to show it before I submit it?
What is the definition of art in this case? I would like to include some poetry in this if I'm allowed.
Thanks for your time, everyone ^^
