From Inkblots to Dark Stained White Art Exhibit 2

I remember as a kid drawing eyes on a peice of paper. The eyes are perhaps the most expressive and delicate feature in the human mind’s recognition circuits. Doing anything for positive or negative impact starts with the eyes. And I would try to master them. I researched how Chinese, Nordic, European, Malay and South European (Basically Mediteranean People) would look. I’d love to have the Blue Panda pen create its magic as I to be better and better everyday. It added to perhaps about some 30-50 eyes alone. And that was one page that day, for the whole month it might be hard to count how many.

My goal at the time was not to perfect drawing the eyes but to create a perfect girl on paper. And as m personal legend would put it: find that girl wherever she is. I never just drew eyes, there were the typical stuff, biceps and chest, arms and legs.

Like Voltron. 🙂 I guess that really reveals my age.

It’s been a long way since those days. The tradgedy was, I seldom created something significant. I was always practicing and felt that any work should be perfect from its first line. This explains some of my philosophy behind the title Dark Stained White.
