When Creativity Meets Creativity
I recently met a new blogger, she dropped a comment on one of my older posts where I uploaded a photoshopped image of my cat Shyna. She told me that she would like to draw one of my cat photos, and I told her that I would be happy if she can get inspired by one of my photos, and that I would be very curious about the result. Most of the time, if I am not too busy, I visit the blogs of people who comment here, and that is basically how I learned about Laura from Create Art Everyday.
I am not an illustrator, but I like to take a look at images, whether it is photography, all the other kinds of digital art, and also the classic pen and paper art. What I found on her blog was impressive, she is drawing a lot, and she is drawing very good. I’d like to suggest you to take a look and check out her blog Create Art Everyday, her work is really awesome! I clicked like on her most recent work, and I had to subscribe instantly, because I really love what she is doing.
Then I got the email notification of her freshly published post, and as implied in the comments in one of my posts, she really has drawn my cat, inspired by this photo. I was impressed, and very happy that there is now a drawn image of my cat Shyna, and I like how it turned out, but she told me that it’s a preliminary sketch, but that she is happy that I appreciate her work.
I noticed that drawing and photography have a lot of things in common, take for example the fact that I upload tons of photos to my blog in a year, it’s not meant to tell you that they are perfect images, the only reason why I do it, is that I want to document my progress and things that happen around me, and I want to be able to take a look back, I want to practice and improve on my past work. What I would call a snapshot in my field, is something she calls a sketch in her field.
However, even if she mentioned it was done in her humble sketchbook with bad paper, and in a short time, I must say I totally love the result anyway! If you like her sketch too, please visit her blog, and by the way, she is chatty too and replies to all comments like I do!
