Today I thought I’d share with you some examples of how different moods affect me as an artist. I had planned to have eight pictures for each topic, but as I found that my mood also affects my willingness to cooperate with my self, I don’t just yet. I will add more as I make more, so eventually this will paint a more complete picture. The way that I went about creating these pieces is that I pick a pallet of five to ten colors that speaks to me, and then I just let what ever pops into my head come out onto the screen. I used both Adobe Photoshop Sketch, and Adobe Illustrator Draw which, I believe, are both free apps on the App Store, and I used the Apple Pencil on my iPad Pro. Each of the images below is a thumbnail you can click on to view the full size image. Please feel free to share your thoughts on what I’m doing here in the comments, or if you’re an artist too you’re welcome to post links to your work here as well!
Neutral – on the few days that I felt normal over the last month I created these images.
Depressed – when I was in the throes of my depressed cycle, this is what came out of my mind.
Manic – on my manic cycle I tend to like both bright and dark colors.
OCD – this one was fun, because instead of giving in to a compulsive behavior, I turned my mind toward creating these images.
