Nonsense by Elleir Nonsense by Elleir
This ain't supposed to be beautiful.

---

Bought myself a '';poster-paint'' White Extra Bold Point Sharpie today cause I wanted to try some things on journal paper, but I had to test it first. This sketch is a really random one I did in school being absolutely bored and uninspired...

So there you go, here's me testing out white sharpies and mascara, adding some drawing ink and painting red the main character.

Gotta work on my character's environments, eventually.

So you were't inspired by anything to do this peice but you've probably inspired so many with this "unispired-peice"! LOL!
Amaaaazingly amaaazing. : )

I think the piece is nice as it is. Kind of an abstract evil angel and his little pet.

I love it! This is a really nice piece for a " I'm bored and uninspired" work, in fact this is a really nice piece anyway!

I love this. It kind of reminded me of Alex Pardee when I first saw it, but it's still really original. You're amazing.

Second time Pardee's been mentionned here, I got scared until you said I still have some originality. Thanks man <3

i find it hard to hear that you create this way when you feel uninspired! (i feel as though my uninspired is on a way different level) i love the stomach pulled in -- vraiment quand je vois ça ça me touche particulièrement parce que ça me rapporte au noeud que je ressens si souvent au plexus et à toute la faim que j'ai pour ressentir ce que je bloque en dedans

I think it's beautiful.
Never would've thought of using mascara, but hey, boredom does strange things to your creativity.

I'd suggest it to you! It's fun for textures, really.

I think I'd mess up. Horribly, and we don't have mascara. I don't think my friends would let me use theirs and I don't know what kind to buy. 0.o Any tips?

Hahaha, mine's one I got on christmas about 6 years ago or something. I don't wear much make-up myself. Just buy one really cheap one, it shall do the trick. Try on a few used/sketch sheets... I usually go stroking it softly all over the page keeping the movement as a straight line then go messy on the corners. Experiment!

Mascara's impossible to use on paper. x_X Kudos for pulling it off.

I really like this one though. It's cool randomness. :]

Hahaha, I'm using one old and used one which doesn't have much left in it so maybe that's why it's pretty pleasant and/or easy to use... But it's just to make some dirty texture so it's not much to care about details and such things...

Your style reminds me of an artist I can't for the life of me remember the name of. >_<

In any case, this' just really, really cool. The color mixed with the shadowed sort of background, and your use of ink... it all works well together.

Maybe Gerald Scarfe? That was who I thought of? That red birdman is a powerful figure; he looks as if he might exist somewhere off the page.

I meant it! Because as you say it isn't beautiful, it's strange and raw, so it isn't trying to please the viewer, it's just expressively being what it is (but the different textures of the mixed media are effective and the composition is excellent).
