    Previously my personal artwork thread, the floodgates have opened for all FC users who partake in any form of traditional or digital artistry! Post your stuff here; the communal resting place for all designs, sketches, final prints and whatever else you could call ‘Art’!

    I just find that this sort of thing personally helps me get motivated to make more, and gives me that feeling of appreciation and recognition that my work has effected someone and made them think inwards and outwards as a result of the love and emotion I pour into these drawings, and if you feel the same or just want to share for the hell of it then this is the place. As always, feedback & your personal interpretation/opinion of anything here is encouraged.

    At the least; I hope it gives you something decent to smoke up to! Enjoy! My shit may have occupied the first few pages but the rest is yours!

    I appreciate that! I know you're just being nice though ;) haha
    Here are a few more that I enjoyed working on. This is mostly an old collection though, so enjoy this while I work on photographing my newer stuff.

    Actually, I am being quite sincere! Your art work interests me. I also dabble in art, as I have posted several of my oil paintings on one of our FC threads. Here are just a few:

    Those are quite nice. Very organic and natural. Thank you for sharing those! I have attempted oil painting but I found it very difficult to work with, so kudos for doing so well!

    All of the paintings that I have done are very basic and mainly consisting of line-work, but it's so fun to play around with! Watercolour is my favourite. Here are some of them :)

    Super rad, I love the bunny people dancing around the central fire. Man, if you made an animation in your style i'd watch the fuck out of it .

    That's a really special one to me. I actually drew that during a brief period in a psychiatric ward at the local hospital after a bad experience with an old group of 'friends' who dragged me further into drugs when I was desperately trying to quit. I checked myself in for a week to get away from the world and detox and experience what my life could be like if I continued to abuse substances, and this drawing is actually still on the wall in the hospital for the patients. It shows a few souls (in this case; rabbits) who have had a hard road in life but are still able to come together at a universally recognised place of warmth . The central fire.

    Thank you for taking an interest in that one :) I've never had anyone point that one out, so i've never been able to tell what it meant to me.

    Here are some more.

    I know it's beyond personal, but i really love all the anecdotes about how the painting was made ( i.e. the story behind the central fire one, learning that the one above was your after first mesc trip at 16) really helps me appreciate them more :) +10 love points for the stories your including :)

    That is some fucking awesome feedback. Thanks gigaurora! What I will do from now on is write a description of what each piece means to me or the circumstances under which it was drawn :) It will help me reflect on them which is going to be really fun. Much love man, seriously :) :tup: I'll post more when I get home from work, and if there are any pictures that i've already posted that you want me to explain PLEASE just quote them and ill do it asap. Peace out to you and all those who are checking out my life's passion :D

    edit: stuff like this makes my entire week worthwhile by the way. extra special thank you to gigaurora just for being a good guy :)

    legit brought a smile to my face and has remained there for like 20 minutes :D



    edit: (later on in the day)
    This one isn't really art, but to me it is the most personal form of art so I guess it's art.. Whatever it is, sprawled words on paper. My first time meditating down at the beach, skipping school and drinking with a friend, I just blocked out all the noise and turned my thoughts outward. I removed the internal dialogue and just closed my eyes. After a bit of astral travelling and feeling as if I'd just stared directly at the sun and absorbed it's energy; I just wrote this with my eyes still closed.
    Felt right at the time, and I think of it from time to time and think of that feeling that exists inside me all the time, but I just forget about it. It's stillness, absence of incessant thought and the need to 'understand' things and put labels on them. This is just nonsense, but to me it speaks a greater truth.

    sense is over rated, there is as much wisdom to be found in nonsense then the tenants of sense anyway. Besides, whats nonsense anyway but simply something you can't understand :)
