Portrait in Progress by BenHeine

I'm not sure what the idea is (I can't read the minds of other people) but what I see indicates that there is a pretty interesting idea...

Looking at this right away brings thoughts of childhood bedtime and surrealism. I'm not sure what is trying to be conveyed as a message...


I recently graduated from high school, which I never really liked.  If high school was a salesman, I'd probably beat up high school and then demand a full refund from high school
for all the seconds of my life I wasted in an institution that really turns innocent, fully human people into beings with vapid minds,
similar to processed and nutrient deficient foods... or at least tries to.

Alright, enough ranting about high school.

I need to get back to art, since it's the only thing I know that gives myself identity... unlike (at least) 50% of the people in high school who want to rip my image up in a paper shredder

So I've figured out a few more things about dA:
1.    Webcam - It's not really a "webcam" video, it's more like a space where you can put up a favorite picture or GIF (if you really feel fancy).  I posted (unfortunately) some depression conscious GIF of that selective rain cloud that only rains on an umbrella.  [Thanks for :icondantesgirl:] and that submission How to: Use a Webcam by dantesgirl for showing me how to get that accompished.
2.    How to mention deviants and deviations - I found that with this:  Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting People
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
Displays as
3.    Formatting - This guide FAQ #104: What HTML formatting can we use on deviantART? And what is the format for these codes? showed me how to make strikethrough text and all than fancy shmancy stuff.

Hope you guys are having a better time than I am right now.

Portrait in Progress by BenHeine
I'm not sure what the idea is (I can't read the minds of other people) but what I see indicates that there is a pretty interesting idea.

I'm sure that very realistic drawings of "someone drawing simple stick figures" are not uncommon but this piece buts a new spin to that idea/situation.

I love the technique because when people start to learn art, they take themselves too seriously and avoid hard lines. The hard line of the simplistic drawing on the wall contrasts deeply with the realistic shading on the head and upper arm. I'm not sure if this was a work in progress but the effect would've been at full force if there was some kind of fade from the head in realistic shading to hard lines (so that the shirt at the neck and should would have some limited value as well).

This makes the piece have more freedom and flexibility, which I enjoy in art. While this isn't a comical piece, I like the fact that things aren't taking so seriously as it can it older forms of art.


TheArtistAsian's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am a part-time artist who tries to make art as much as possible in a normal life.
I work with Windows XP and Windows 7.
I use Photoshop 6 to adjust my photos. I will only change the contrast and brightness in all my photos unless I state otherwise.
I'm also in dire need of Abode Creative Suite 6 (or whatever is the most current CS) and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 (or whatever is the current version).
