about subconscious things that we put into our artwork that come from our real lives!
I thought I'd list a few of the one's that I'm most aware of!
I might update it over time if I notice any others too, ohoho *u*
"IF YOU WATCH TOO MUCH TV YOU'LL GET SQUARE EYES!"
I heard that saying waaaaay too much while growing up as a kid HAHA.
And as a result, all my character's have rather square eyes!
The Circus Princess
My Grandmother would always tell me she'd suggested my name because she liked a Princess called Stephanie from Monaco.
Seems random since our bloodline's so painfully English?
Anywho, this Princess Stephanie ranaway from the Royal family to a Circus with her husband and lived in a caravan LMFAO.
GOOGLE IT. I SWEAR IT'S REAL.
And naturally since I was named after a Circus Princess, I became one myself too. duhh
Thanks grandmother <3
Goldilocks and the three bears!
My Grandparents always referred to me as Goldilocks when I was a kid
and coincidentally I have 3 bears which are the most significant to me!
Firstly there's Blueted
, he was the very first ever bear that I was given as a baby c:
random fact: I made my Grandmother sew a red tongue on him when I was about 5 because I thought he looked too grumpy!?
Next is Redted
, he was given to me at a really young age by my Uncle who's really important to me!
I accidentally left him on a Postman Pat ride in Sainsbury's, luckily I remembered fairly quickly and went running back in sobbing.
Some other child had picked him up so I snatched him back off them and ran away HAHAHAHA.
BABBY STEF SAVES THE DAY.
Then lastly is Yellowted
, I've had her since I was really young too and always referred to her as Blueted's girlfriend LOL.
When my Grandmother had to go into a home she taken a shining to yellow ted so I let her have her,
which I was quite anxious of because she liked ripping the sofa apart at the time D:
Remarkably I got her back in perfect condition after she passed away ;A;
My three circus bears were based around these three special bears!
I wasn't very imaginative as a kid with names so Redted was renamed to Razzle and Yellowted to Sunshine :3
Blueted's personality is pretty old and senile since he's the oldest bear I have LMAO.
Razzle's is grumpy as you might recall from Calvin's Story >__>
this is pent up rage from being left on that Postman Pat ride. Srry guyz.
And Sunshine's the sweetest of them all, since she helped take care of my Grandmother when she was really ill! <3
The Ugly Colours
I felt like all the character's that I was creating a few years ago were all looking the same because of my own interests,
so I decided to try and create one that based around orange and green since I dislike those colours the most.
And thus Trixie was born! o:
Polly Pockets & Little stuffs
You've probably all noticed that I draw really tiny stuff!
I don't doubt that this came from staring at little Polly Pocket world's so much *u*
Background's are by far one of my most favourite things to draw which I've noticed a lot of people try to avoid on DA O___O?
Creating little environment's to play around in is one of my absolute favourite passtimes <3
Character's without a background to me are just lost in a blackhole LOL.
I generally just like little things though. I literally fight for the smallest slice of pizza because it looks the cutest HAHA.
For my final year School exam my art teacher gave me an A4 sheet of paper instead of an A3 one,
because he'd noticed I seemed to get overwhelmed with a larger canvas and didn't perform as well o:
For the majority of my life I'd make playset's out of paper and blutac!
I have an entire folder of a world that I created and kept adding to for literally years c:
It was complete with a hotel, hospital, taxi service, catalogues, campsite, computer stores,
YOU NAME IT. I'D MADE IT IN PAPER.
excuse the craptastic pictures, have some examplez:
The day that I found I could start recreating these in Flash was a rather incredible day!
Although I must admit, I've found I get quite anxious about uploading my playset things online?
I guess it's because I'm so used to them being a personal thing that I hide away and work on.
That's just what they've been to me for almost my entire life LOL. >n<
Help me I'm blind
I need glasses but I rarely ever wear them. Although I don't have a choice at the moment because they're broken HA.
I love living in a blurry little Stephaworld!
Seeing the world in full detail overwhelms me and I try take in all the detail but it gives me headaches @____@;
Sometimes I see things and think DAMN THAT LOOKS AMAZING WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT,
then I get up close and realise it looks nothing like what I thought it did.
Then I'm all OH YES I CAN NOW STEAL THAT IDEA.. from my own imagination.. hehh.
I think it explains why I'm happiest drawing cutesy simplified works, since I opt to see the world in the simplest way possible XD
My logo is a little piece of candy with my name on it.
THIS IS CUZ I MAKE LITTLE SWEET THINGS.
That's all I can think of for now!
Have you guys noticed anything that you do?
I'd be really interested in hearing about it!
SHARE WITH ME <3
I'll shove feature's and other um ..stuff here? ye.
