Most of you know that I’m very fond of makeup and I frequently watch makeup tutorials on Youtube. So today I was doing just that and I ended up in a very creative channel which is not only on makeup but also on painting! Digital painting to be more precise, with Photoshop. The girl is just so talented! I was amazed! Her name is Meowyuanw and here’s one of her wonderful arts:
Painting is such a beautiful art. I think I’m gonna start doing that 🙂
It has so many advantages like:
(i) Relieves stress and makes us relax; a good remedy (after chocolate!) when social expectations and school/work are demanding too much of you, and you get imprisoned in a pressure bubble.
(ii) It is a way to express your inner self, just like makeup… 🙂
(iii) It is a way to play with colours and enjoy yourself.
(iv) Your visual senses and creativity (right side of your brain :D) become much more precise.
(v) It makes you learn about Patience…
In addition Digital Painting is money consuming as you don’t need to buy lots of paint pots or paper. It’s all in your computer! 🙂
You can end up with:
This is my first digital painting for the time being 🙂 I use Paint but of course I’ll have to download the Photoshop later 🙂 Just wanted to try and see for myself how it’s like. Firstly it’s very tiring (Did you know: I get tired more when I work mentally than when I work physically), but it makes me want to learn art!
When I was doing Art at school I hated it because the teachers always expected specific designs from us… while what we all wanted was to freely express ourselves on this blank white paper. That’s why most people don’t like taking art courses unless they’re very good at it and really passionate about it.
For me it will only be another hobby to be added to my long list! 🙂 But whatever hobby I decided to adopt I always ended up putting all my love in it. I love myself for that 😉
But I think I’ll begin by simple pencil sketches for the time being. Then maybe I’ll take on Photoshop and all that. I might be posting my amateur drawings because I would like to know your opinions 🙂
What I’ll draw? Faces, faces and again faces!!! Human features are more interesting to paint 🙂 It’s also due to my makeup addiction 😛 Imagine, giving LIFE to an empty page…
Just like we can all add colours to our lives when these are the darkest…

Now, if i used makeup? which i don’t? (just in case you were wondering) I’d say this is very well written ;D
haha lol! Thanks! 🙂
Nice work! Your piece and the research/tips. I used to water colour paint and draw but have gotten away from it. It is most soul rejuvenating though and I’d like to get back to it. Perhaps you have just given me the way to do it that works for the life I am living now. Thank you for that and for the good read. Wow, I never knew until your piece how complex and involved this digital artistry is. Can’t wait to see what beautiful work you do yourself!
Thanks! Yes I bet all children used to play with watercolour. I loved painting when I was barely four. I had taken courses too for children… but that’s what discouraged me from continuing. You’re most welcome! It will do you good to come back to painting… and painting anything really… just for relaxation and that’s enough! Thanks again!
