My drawing altered with different filters.
It sure has been awhile! Starting today I’ll be posting on Thursdays once again, yay! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Though I have been away from the blog, I did a few things over my break so I thought I’d share them today. ~
My drawing altered in Picsart.
I’ve always been drawn to nature but I don’t often take pictures of people. A few family members saw some of my photography during my break and they offered me a job, to take senior pictures for my cousin. We had fun and I learned a lot about how to take good portraits.
I ran into a few problems during this experience though. One problem I was having was that the coloring kept turning out too red/orange. I found out it was because of the many shades of red in the frame. Editing the red tinted ones was an interesting endeavor, but we all thought it looked a lot better after the edits.
Another problem came up when I was going through the pictures. A few of them had extra background noise that took away from my cousin. So I had to play around on my free Photoshop program, GIMP. Along with taking out the green chair, I also edited the reflection in the windows, Darkened the background and redrew the street. I honestly had a lot of fun with this and look forward to trying out more portraits in the future. I think my favorite part was learning more about my cousins. I also enjoyed the research process of finding new ways to approach my subjects, whether it is a person or thing in nature.
I had a point during the break where I was feeling stifled and insecure with my drawings so I edited a few free drawings by other artists. Most of them were done on the PicsArt app on my phone. The original owner of the drawing on the left is from a Picsart’s artist “@eoaneh.“

I follow an artist on Baylee Jae’s Youtube channel every once in awhile and finally visited her website, http://www.bayleejae.com/. I browsed around her FREE Coloring Pages and got the pic above. My version is to the left.
Updating My Own
When I was finished editing the previous pictures I created the top two pictures in this post. Sometimes our creativity comes back after playing around with something different. Lastly, I felt like this picture was missing something so I decided to give it a new background today.
I’m still not sure if I like it but I’ll sit with it for a bit ;).
Okay that’s enough for this week. More to come soon, see you next Thursday!
