Creative Chaos #PACCreativeChaos Link-Up | Draw a Portrait

Hi hi friends! Woot for creativity, #paccreativechaos, & link-ups to creatively draw a portrait. But first … let’s check in. How’s hump day treating yah?! Of course I hope it’s grand and colorful! But whatever it is, GAMBARE! 👯✨ Let your creativity & passion pull you through! You got this. 💗💗💗 Welp! The meat & potatoes are here! Let’s talk about this portrait … Since this is my first time linking up with the Peace & Chaos fam, let me tell you how it works ~

How Creative Chaos Works:

Creative Chaos is a monthly creative challenge that anyone can join. (Click to Tweet.) On the first of each month I’ll share a post that describes the challenge and how to participate, as well as a few of my favourite creations from the previous challenge. Then near the end of the month there will be a link-up that participants can use to share their creations. Keep reading ~

About My  Portrait

Just last month, I found Cole’s blog. I became excited after checking out her creative link-ups (‘cuz I’m a creep like dat! 🙌). Since I have goals for self improvement through blogging, I decided to use her creative link-ups as creative prompts to challenge myself. tip: No matter your level or ability in art, I would HIGHLY encourage this. It’s great brain exercises for creatives! Unfortunately, I realized I wouldn’t be able to take part. So I vowed that I would take part this month. But then I read that I’ll have to draw a portrait … 👀 oh joy ~ 😁😓 disclaimer: I loathe drawing, though it doesn’t seem that way 😇 Since I’m not getting paid for this … there goes that motivation 😹😹😹 So I had to out in my thinking cap and find motivation and creative ways to make this enjoyable for me.

Portrait Motivation & Inspiration

Things that swirled around in my head all month while considering things (YES! I typically draw & create in my head as prelim) were:
  • tattoos
  • lace
  • back piece
  • mehndi
  • color
  • more wabori (Japanese style tattoo) inspired art (check out my collaboration print with CRANK)
  • wanting to include a million lines
  • wanting to use this stunning picture I cane across while doing my Instagram Fabulous group assignment that I want to use (THANK YOU Dreamy Dwellings!)
img_2266-1 I think that’s about it that I cared about. I didn’t figure out how to put everything together until the 9th hour. Hooray for artist block, a cluttered brain, and good ol’ procrastination to pull yah through! But here’s my portrait! Unfortunately, I didn’t document from start to finish. Hence my semi-start to finish comment from my daily tattoo blog. (… in case you were over there kicking it ^^) BUT I did get to snapchat some flicks.
