Sometimes you have those pieces, and no matter how much you work on them, what you do to them, and how often you keep changing them, even after uploading, you just are not that happy with them. Some might be acceptable to you but most of the time, these pieces leave you a kind of bitter sweet after taste and uploading them feels more like a relief, more like a way to finally get rid of them than anything else.
But rarely, you get this feeling how even the very first line you draw, the quick sketch or random idea doodle becomes so good, you love it so much that you already feel so attached to the piece and you just know that everything that will follow will be a pure pleasure to do and that this piece will keep you happy until the very end and uploading it becomes more a matter of pride, pride in your work and sharing it actually makes you happy.
I'm currently working on a piece like that. For my next work I started a super fast doodle, an approximation of how I wanted the final result to look like, a composition sketch if you will. After just one simple quick doodle session I am already in love with this piece and I know that it can ONLY get better and better! In light of this recent blast of artistic inspiration I felt like sharing a couple of my own pieces that did this exact same thing already once before (and there aren't many). Art that from the second that pen dropped, I loved it already and working on them was a joy from the very first second, right down to the very last.Show me a piece from YOU that gave you this exact same feeling! I'm really curious to see some of the works you did that you loved working on from beginning to end and that you are STILL proud of!
What started as a quick doodle quickly became a MUST finish piece because it looked way to good to stay a simple doodle.
An idea I thought was too good not to draw turned out EXACTLY how I saw it in my head, and we all know that barely ever happens.
A dream collaboration with Cavea turned out even better than I had hoped, once I did that outline I was so proud already, then, when she added the colours, that was it, I died a little of happiness.
My love for whales, video games and funny crap prompted me into doing this, I tried finding as many whales as I could from all kinds of video games, asked around, did some research, and apart from having to leave out a couple due to lack of space, this work is still my favourite out of everything I have ever done, this piece is 100% me and every single whale was a bliss to work on and this piece still makes me smile to this day.
