My daughter K, @heyitskea on Instagram, installed AutoDesk Sketchbook and made herself busy with a few small artworks.
This one below took her a week if I’m not mistaken. She is a fan of BTS, specifically Taehyung a.k.a. V and she may have thought of challenging herself to try a little more complicated image, thus chose this one. I just had to take a screenshot of both the reference and her accomplishment. Along the way, she got worried saying she can’t do the teeth and hair parts as they seem difficult. There was even an outline at first, but I had to ask her try without it instead.
Also, I had to tell her that it is indeed difficult as she is obviously a beginner. It will go easy along the way. The “keep trying” and “never give up” advises worked for her. This was a chance for me to remind our daughter that “All things are difficult before they become easy.” And nothing will ever be accomplished if you just keep telling yourself that the situation or task is hard, you gotta face that fear, start and keep going to achieve success.
She posted her finished artworks in her Instagram account. As a Mom, I can not help but be proud of her. ? Oh by the way, she made this using her mobile phone, no stylus used, just her fingers. With the satisfied look on her face after posting her “Taehyung” artwork, I know that she will be creating a few more. Especially that she has received email messages and direct messages too expressing their admiration of her works.
Her love of drawing and designing has made her decide to take Arts and Design Track, Visual Arts strand in Senior High. She even has another mobile phone app installed called Design Home (Crowdstar Inc) and I guess it helps her learn more about interior designing and sharpen her skills too. She has not completely decided yet if she will push for Architecture or Interior Design in college. As for us her parents, she has our support all the way.
