My process depends on the media I am using.
Usually, they all start with desire to create something, curiosity and exploring the journey and better understanding of new materials.
For many people, new materials are their worst nightmare, but I enjoy and strive to learn new ways of putting my imagination into something visual.
I enjoy the process of creating something, it could be doing MetalClay beads or sketching in the sketchbook the worlds and concepts that didn't exist before.
However, some ideas don't come to life, because sometimes I am not too sure of how to start, and it takes unconscious scribbles to get me going. And sometimes great ideas are lost in between my head and paper, but I am constantly working on improving my expression and drawing style, so that I am more confident when I put things on paper.
Final results never tend to satisfy my expectations and I gravitate to loving the sketchbook and the rough work much more than the final product. This is especially true to the 2D works that I create.
However, when I have a clear vision of what I want to see, it is easier for me to finish the work.
Through the University projects, I also found out that it is much easier to work when I am given specific guidelines and boundaries to work in. This helps me focus and guides my work and the finished pieces tend to satisfy me much more than usual.
