The Lonely Night

I have been sitting alone, keeping the night’s company, it seemed alone

rocking to the basses in my ears, my physical being been the speakers

beats in sync with my heartbeat, my muscles moving about in sneakers

teaching my blood flow how to groove,  now the sky is with storm, 

the stars smile done on me, winking with a twinkle, but not enough to light my mind

keeping the night’s company

reading its moonless emotions 

I ask you Night did I made the right choice, I am on the right path

even if it may invoke those around me wrath?

 hoping it will pay off, extinguishing the forest fires

allowing the phoenix to fly home

Distant

I look to the horizon to see

What’s on the other side

But only my mind reaches

While my body sits wondering, 

Sounds of whispers, echoes 

But I only hear their voices

But I don’t hear their words

I live in loud silence

Deafening, unbalancing

A heavy life to bear, numerous thoughts to care

 so I picked up the pen once again, in hopes that I can return from this distant…

Pretend

pretend I was a secret, would you keep me?

would you tell your best friend?

pretend I was your thoughts

would you converse with me?

would you tell me what’s hidden in your heart?

pretend I was your life, would I be a burden?

Pretend I was your heart, would you follow me? Would you love me?

Pretend I was you phone, would touch me? Would you hold me?

Pretend I was your TV, would you watch me everyday?

Pretend I was your favourite series would you keep up with me?

What if you felt what I am feeling? Would you understand me better? 

Questions fills my mind, how will I find these answers?
 

Musical Euphoria

Musical Euphoria

Musical Euphoria’, A recent upload to my website, jamlifeasweknowit.weebly.com. This pieces was done for a creative invite on Talenthouse to the theme of “Celebrating Music and how it makes you feel when you listen to it through your lifetime…” if you think about it a musical euphoria was a good depiction, wouldn’t you say? (though it didn’t get pick but none the less I liked how it turned out).

Process of it’s creation

Now we will get into the process that lead up to this piece, first I sort a reference image for the person and another for the head phones, those two put together and drawn traditionally on paper as a sketch, then outlined and scanned digitally for further cleaning/inking. The scanned image was opened in a design software Autodesk Sketchbook Pro (one of many software used for any digital art, illustration, painting, comics etc), it is user friendly and it comes with tutorials like any other software to get ready for using it for any of your digital drawing journey. Alright that aside, the next step is after the image loads in the software, I lower the opacity and add new layer on top and just choose my pencil tool and trace over my sketch to get that cleaner look, Line-Art. This process can be viewed on a video I uploaded on YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVaFGaSKMqc

After the finishing the Line-art (looking over and editing), the next step is colouring, now Autodesk Sketchbook pro has the option of export the file as a PSD file so it can be transfered to Photoshop for further editing and that I did for colouring. and nope I don’t have video for this yet, I may just do one in parts soon, Stay tune. Pick your colour pallet, for me choose blue visual style and giving it a glowing effect. After looking over numerous times and retouching where needs retouching, the finish piece has you seen there. “Musical Euphoria’

Space

First I existed.
In a world free of boundaries .
Free to walk the cardinal points without fear of prosecution.

No boundaries.

Envy, greed and spite swept in.
Dividing the once borderless mass into borders.
Boundaries now existed.

‘You’re trespassing!!!’

‘Says who?’ I ask with utter confusion.

Just yesterday I ran through those fields,
I flew with the birds,
Grazed with the cows,
And even climbed the trees with my four-legged foes.

‘Says the law of the land you fool.’

Fool.
I let the word resound in my head. Am I foolish for not knowing?
Knowing that the land had its laws. For not once did that topic come up in our myriad of conversations.

Well I can’t continue being a fool now?

I conform.
I walk the streets I’m allowed to walk.
The malls, the schools, the bus parks, banks and the occasional club.

Then the boundaries make themselves visible.

‘Time to go. We are now closed to the public’

Closed.

Now where do I go from here?

Home.
You go home.

What’s a home?

A building consisting of rooms. Where people live.

But that makes no sense. Are you saying I’m only alive when I exist in this place called home?

Stop wasting my time. You’re being a fool. Go find your family.Go home.

I can’t continue being a fool. Now can I?

I find them.
The family,
Existing in a building with rooms.

Well surely I can claim one for myself.

It’s small.
It’s quiet.
Finally a space to call my own.
I carry all that’s precious to me in it.

Then my gems go missing.
The culprit nameless and faceless.

You fool!
I yell at myself.
Don’t you know the only space you can control is your mind?

I get wise.
I control what goes in,
Who goes in,
And what comes out.

I now control my space.

Planet Nvidia

Good day viewers/readers, three new recent upload images, Planet Nvidia, recently took up space art and this was the result on the first try. This pieces is combination of speed painting and photo-manipulation, with some airbrushing here and there all coming together to form these lovely artworks. to get the these three different coloured version, all I did was in Photoshop, there are some image adjustment layers you can add that can tweak the image to how you want to look and feel it will give, I used the Hue/saturation adjustment layer to get two coloured version you see there green lit and orange lit and the my favourite of the three the black and white, which gives it mysterious effect, that one I just changed the image mode to grayscale and presto change-o that version was born.
Neat don’t you think? as for a video well, luckily I did save the process stages so we will see how that goes it goes and it will be uploaded and ready for viewing soon.

Thank you for reading, stay tune for more post as we keep Jahcreating, the Jam Life. Peace!
