So. While I was in Tennessee, I usually visit this guy who makes these special t-shirts. He makes them special for me, because he takes my drawings and puts them on the shirt for me.
Guess how he does it?
Air brush. c:
So. This year, he gave me another lecture about art, and how much he wanted/ thought it would be a good idea for me to pursue a career in it, in being an artist.
My first design for my shirt he said he couldn't do, because it was Spider-man, and that was copyrighted. I was like.. damn it. >.<
So I decided to do all four of my boys, in chibi form, holding signs with their names on it, in the way they would write and or style it. When I brought it to him, he said he could do it, but it would cost 12 bucks per character, and 14 for the letters where it says 'Big Time Rush' at the bottom, and so on and so forth.
I decided to just put Kendall on the front of my shirt so it would cost less. I also got 'Schmidt, #111' on the back of the T-shirt. [Picture will come later tonight]
And, while I watched him do another kids shirt, I decided...
That I wanted to do Air brushing.
So, he gave me all these tips, saying all you need to do is buy an air brush, buy the DVD, and have 50 hours on you're hands. And he said to practice on paper towel, before doing shirts.
He air brushed the steps on paper towel for me to take home. Well, he gave me the basics. He also brushed out bubble, cursive, and regular letters for me. AND, he brushed 5 stencils for me.
SO, with that said, I know I have a new tablet, that I really haven't used much, but I've decided to push back the digital drawing for awhile. Don't worry tho, I still am drawing triditionally... because I never seem to stop doing so!
But, in the next few months, Air brushing will become my new style of art, that I really hope you like. And once I get really good at it, I can make shirts for everyone. Tell me what you want, and I'll see how much that would cost ya, and I'll make the shirt for you. c:
That is all. LOL.
