Gandalf second drawing Teaser by AtomiccircuS
Gandalf second drawing Teaser
Gandalf second drawing Teaser

Far to many people requested another teaser of this drawing , so here it is =)

I never post more than 1 teaser per drawing so that i dont spam everyone's news feed =)

But since the first one was just super early outlines i guess it will not hurt to show you how it looks half way done =)

the black around was done with tattoo color. the rest is graphite and charcoal pencils from Derwent =)

As you can see there is not a lot op paper left on that page =) so the next step is to start adding first and second hand detail =)

sorry about the bad light, im working at out mountain house and the light is not the best =)

While drawing this i started watching Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood ( still waiting for new one piece episodes ) so far its very similar to the original , cant wait for it to start branching out in another direction ( or thats what i heard will happen )

Collection of my wok from 2014 by AtomiccircuS
Collection of my wok from 2014
Collection of my wok from 2014

Im here to say thank you to everyone!

My life goal has been achieved . As some of you may know ( the people who have been following me from the the early days ) i set my goal at age 26, and well i turned 26 few days ago.

When i was 17 years old i started art school and from a very early age i understood that to achieve greatness you need to sacrifice  a lot. And it needs to be build on dedication and repeated failure . I was drawing what i would consider lot for a 17 year old one - but that was far from enough.

And at the age of 19 i started Collage ( art degree ) and gave my self a unrealistic challenge that i was going to do no matter what.

The challenge was to draw, tattoo, airbrush, paint a pic per day no matter what. It was many hard years of work . I tried everything possible and pushed my own bounders far to many times. When my wrist started hurting from to much drawing i used my left hand to draw instead ( i felt like no excuses could stop my path ). When i could not draw because of what ever reason i felt incredibly bad, almost sick because i thought i was missing out. There was no time to be wasted.
Countless hours spend creating , copying ,modifying ,erasing , building and repeating the process over and over again. I was like a sponge, sucking in what ever when ever i could learn about my craft. Taking the ideas of other people and improving them/ changing them and adding my process to them.

So after spamming the internet for years with at least one post per day i have finally achieved my goal.

So my goal was to become a good/ great artist at the age of 26 and to be well know  / famous in a way. Well i guess i can say i did it. My facebook fan page got 100 000 followers my instagram page got 135 000 followers. And all of the other pages i use  got about 100 000 as well.

I was featured countless times on some of the biggest art pages on the internet . I had interviews with large art magazines. I was on TV and im sponsored by one of the biggest pencil producers in the world. So yeah i guess i did it hehe =D

To be honest if feels great , it feels like a huge boulder has been removed from my shoulder. So now the question is will i continue this path ?
Im not sure, the last years i was consumed by art that i did not have time to do anything else. Dont get me wrong i love what i do and i dont even know if i could stop. =D

But i will definitely start on new projects that include creating ( but not necessarily art )
When i set my goal i had the option to choose two paths. The art path ( that i took ) or the music path. I was and still am very interested into music but i felt to get good at something i needed to give up one of the, and at the time i felt like art was a safer way to go. So i quit my band and stopped practicing vocals/ guitar and started investing all of my time in art.

Writing this as a thank you and as a insight to all the kids who dream about being an artist. Its hard and not very rewarding for years. You will not get good over night . You will need to build your foundation first and construct your dream one brick at the time.

Work with understanding and a critical eye. Work with a passion and a goal in mind.  And maybe one day if you have worked hard enough you will be here where i stand now.

I still have a lot to learn my self, but at this point i feel that no mountain is hard to climb and no top is unreachable. I got a solid and huge foundation that i can continue building on.

Once again thank you for all of your wonderful support and all the great feedback that i got during all of these years. =)

Last year i did a huge composition of my work called : Evolution of my art :

You can see how my art evolved during the years ( 8 -25 )

And you can see that everyone with the same passion as me can do what i do =)

Teaser of my new large painting by AtomiccircuS
Teaser of my new large painting
Teaser of my new large painting

Working on something new and different once again =) Note how i wrote painting and not drawing. Im using only one size brush ( about 1,5 cm )and tattoo color. Thats the only thing i used so far an thats the only thing i will use to finish this painting =)

I got so inspired to try out a large scale splatter drawing/ painting so here is the first teaser of it =)

Its incredible how fast you can work with a brush compared to a pencil =) I did not paint for about 3-4 years so its good to hold a brush again =D

Would also note that the original reference photo was taken by : David Lazar . He is one of my favorite photographers =D
