Talking Assorted Artness

This first one is called 'BRAINS!' Made it using a sheet of drywall, xmas lights, sharpies, a guitar hero guitar frame, and an old sweater sleeve.


This one is called 'Tree of Death'. I did this one with chalk pastels.


This one is a more personal piece. I made it on Valentine's day in memory of a love lost years ago. Its also made of chalk pastels.


This is fanart I made with some neon blacklight markers. I call it 'Naruto Neon Fanartness'. (Yea, I'm a nerd.)


So...what do you guys think? Be honest, no sugar-coating it! I NEED constructive criticism so that I may advance!

I'll post more later on. There WILL be comic book pages.

These are amazing! I really love your style, lots of personality in your artwork and lots of vibrant colors. How long have you been doing art?

To answer your question Im Not Here, I've been drawing since I was 6, I used to SUCK horribly but I never gave up and just kept going because art has always been an escape for me.
Oh, and Albatross, I'm actually a tattoo artist in-training. I got my equipment a few months ago and I've mostly been practicing on myself. Its a lot more productive than mutilation, I daresay. I'm still not at a level where I feel comfortable tattoing another person, I'm afraid of making a mistake lol. I'll get better eventually, and I'll get back with you on that.
Thank you for the kind words and compliments.

Here's more! They are older, so there has been some actual improvement.
This one's called 'The Battle Within'. I did this with neon markers once more. (Told you I was a moose lol.)


This one is called 'Scare Bears', also done with neon markers, but also with sharpie.


I made this one for my mom on her birthday. I half-assed did this in 10 minutes with charcoal sticks whilst looking at a picture of a wolf I found online. A lot of people liked this one, for some reason. Its called 'Moonlight Wolf'.


This one is another depressing self-portrait thing as well as the work beneath this. I made this one in about 5-6 minutes using a jumbo sharpie marker as means of self-expression.
I call it 'Keep Out'.


The motivation for this one is self-explanatory, I made this with oil pastels. It's called 'Anti-Psychotics and Me'. I really wish I did the background for this better. *sighs*


This last one is a portrait of one of my favorite people on this planet: Ellen Degeneres.
I made this with oil pastel as well. Its called 'Ellen Degeneres I Love You'. (I really do, but I swear I'm not a stalker lol.)

Darcio, these are incredible! I especially love the gritty "graffiti" look they have. I often enjoy being stopped at trains tracks because there are some really gifted artists who work with very humble and simple supplies, and produce art on the boxcars that speaks so loudly and honestly ... it actually puts me into a trance watching them flash by.

The one I liked best was "keep out". wow. That one was a stunner.

How do you upload images this size to the post? when I get "clearance" to upload attachments, I'd like to share some of my art too. But I don't know how to get it uploaded.

Thank you for sharing!
