About I Made a Ghost of You
As I’m sure you’re aware, making art can be quite involved. The setup process in particular … at least when you’re using paints or a combination of mediums.
Here’s a little self-motivation tip: high levels of involvement in the setup process can function as quite the deterrent to actually doing it. (I’ve learned not to take self-motivation for granted.)
Making a drawing like these only involves four small things, and the whole ordeal requires practically no setup or teardown.
- A piece of paper
- A pencil
- An eraser
- A brush pen.
It’s also nice to really dig into a particular style for a few drawings in a row.
Linework leverages a really different type of thinking for me than paint, charcoal, or pastel. You have to really choose how you’re going to create textures. Crosshatching, parallel lines, stippling, scribbling … it’s kind of overwhelming how many effects can come out of this one tool. So it’s good to get some practice.
