    So, to answer the question: I guess I am. Haha. First off, I'm not really that good in art. But if I put my mind to it, I can create something. Disclaimer though: I can't draw anything without something to copy.

    I said here before that I won a drawing contest here in the forum. After hours of searching, I finally found the thread: https://opforum.net/threads/opf-2nd-competition-join-now.999/ and the announcement of winners: https://opforum.net/threads/winners-of-the-opf-2nd-competition.2351/

    Here's the art I have submitted in that contest: (Hope you can still see it. There's a problem in the photo sharing site)

    Now on to another of my artworks. Here's a painting I did last year. This was my first time doing such a thing. We chose a painting we would like to re-create. Of course we were guided by the staff on how to do the strokes but everything was done by me. Including the birds in the middle which is a pain to paint as they're really small. And they're the last to be done in the painting so if it goes bad, the whole thing is ruined. Luckily, I pulled it off.

    I can't see the other photo but the painting looks great! I would totally hang that on my wall :D You did well with the birds, I would probably have practised them on a paper loads of times before putting them on the painting to make sure I don't mess up xD

    Holy. Blue has always been a beautiful color but hot damn your usage of it is honestly amazing. I'm not really the painting type but even I would consider hanging this on my wall. It has a real nice vibe to it, I think it would give some calm to my mind. Great job dude!

    Can you see it now?

    Thank you. :) I did actually practice on paper first before I tried it on the painting. I was nervous as hell! Also, the brush I used is somewhat big, not really the type to use in a small drawing. So the birds were extra hard to do.

    One of my favorite colors is blue. That's why I picked this painting to re-create. I was assisted by the staff when I was doing this so I can't really get 100% of the compliment. Still, thank you. :)

    Yup. It was a screenshot. I can't open the photo in the original thread that's why I just took a screenshot. The owl that you can see there is my entry. Kinda blurred but I just wanted to show my pencil drawing because I was proud of it. Lol.

    Nah really, assistance and inspiration is all gone, what matters is the result you got yourself, and it's amazing, so it's a well-deserved compliment

    Thank you @Iki Hotaro! :)

    Now that you mentioned it, it kinda looks like “Autistic” haha.

    Thank you Admiral!

    Yeah. I've always wanted to visit that place with my bestfriend but we both left Metro Manila without doing it. Maybe next time xD

    Do you still have more paintings/ drawings that you can show us? I'd love to see more! :blush:

    You should definitely go once you get back here in Manila. It’s fun and relaxing at the same time.

    Unfortunately, that’s the extent of my artistic skills. Lol. Those are the only artworks that I did, tbh. I’m planning to go back to Sip and Gogh though for another painting. Soon.

    @Cleand The painting really looks nice.
    Your are definitely an artist to be able to portray birds and the Galaxy.

    Just like what @Twelve mentioned, it is very refreshing.
