A Flash of Colour, Flight by 5Happy5
A Flash of Colour, Flight
A flying Kingfisher. I have done the colour with random lines to show the quick flashes of colour that you see when you see a Kingfisher. I've done the details of the Kingfisher in black as the feathers have alot of black in them.

This has been done with ink and black coloured pencil on A3 white paper.

Drawn from this wonderful photo Common Kingfisher by Jamie-MacArthur

Lion Portrait
This is part of a series of 5 big cats that I've been comissioned to do. I'm really please with how this one has come out, he looks really regal.

This done with coloured pencils on A5 coloured textured paper.

I used this wonderful reference for this drawing here lion 4 by Drezdany-stocks

I want to sell my artwork and hopefully get it displayed in galleries, but I worry that I don't have any qualifications. Most people's bio's I've seen on the internet have a list of the qualifications that they have.

I know that being a self taught artist is fine, but does it make it harder to compete with other artists?

There's no way I'd be able to afford to do a degree, but I can afford to do a diploma, which I'd have to do in my time off from work. But the question is, would it be worth the effort?

Let me know if any of you have any thoughts about this.

Thanks

Seeking Patrons

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 29, 2015, 1:47 PM
A parton of an artist quite offen used to be royaly or someone super rich, but now anyone can become a patron of the arts. Similar to crowd funding partreon.com is a site where you can donate to an artist per artwork or per month.

I've got a page and I'm now seeking people to support my artwork. Any amount large or small will be a great help. It'll go towards new art supplies, a new camera to photograph my work and so that I can do cool vids for you all.

Take a look and I hope that you will become one of my patrons and together we can create something beautiful.

Artist | Professional | Varied

My names Nicola, but all my friends call me happy, so I concider all you lovely people of DeviantArt to be my friends, so you can call me Happy. I love creativity in many forms, including singing, playing guitar, dance and of course art.
I wanted to be an artist all my life (apart from a few years when I wanted to be an astrophysist). I work in a verity of mediums, I love the different properties and chalanges of different work. I always strive for perfection in everything I do, but I have learn't when to stop, rather than get obssesive.

Big thanks to everyone who favourites my work. I don't have enough time, or internet allowance to thank you all indiviually. I love all the support you give my work.

5Happy5,
Thank you so much, also. Seeing your artwork in the group is tremendously appreciated. You have such finesse that I feel that sometimes people should stop and pay more attention to what can be achieved with some pencils. That is why I prefer traditional art -it gives a better sense of accomplishment to produce something in pencil, in my opinion.
Thank you.
