I have had a browse on your website, your work is quite amazing, loved reading your story about the toothpicks, lol, may try that when I next do grasses, have used toothbrushes and mascara brush as the brushes made for the job don't look real, I cut bits out and make them tatty, but toothpicks, gotta try that.
I found your work on 'fineartamerica' and to say it is impressive is a massive understatement. For my part, I took up the brushes a couple of years ago and am on a huge learning curve. One day, perhaps.........
You sound like me...I've done a little bit here and there but then a couple of years ago I decided that once and for all I was going to devote some time to my artwork. I'm kind of sorry I waited to long, but then again, I'm glad I didn't wait any longer, lol. I'm glad you joined us, I think this will be the perfect place for you to renew your journey.
2. Please do not upload photographs to the Site Gallery. While the Art Colony administrators do love photography, there are plenty of photography sites on the Internet and we aim to keep this site focused on arts and crafts.
Digital art is accepted, as long as it fits the following definition: "Computer-generated art that is created by hand (i.e. using a tablet, stencil etc), either from scratch or from a reference source."
Under this definition, photographs that have been slightly tweaked (photo-edited) are not accepted as "digital art" (i.e. running a photograph through a few Photoshop filters and displaying it as a finished work of digital art. We consider this to be photography).
If photographs are discovered in the Site Gallery, you will be asked to remove them or a moderator will do it for you. This is to ensure that the Site Gallery contains only art and crafts.
