Emotion plus Craft equals Art

Updated on December 20, 2011

My 3d self-portrait

Note the gleam I put into the eyes? That's craft! But I smiled as I was working on the image - that's art!

Some of my pictures, done with 3d software.

This is the trick to make your craft an art: infuse it with emotion.

You can be a master of your craft by devoting hours of practice. It will still remain a craft, till you pass on your feelings through your piece. A dish can be cooked to recipe-precision, but a mother's love added to the preparation and serving lifts it to the level of Art.

3D software gives you a blinding array of features and effects, but it's up to you to add a dash of emotion to cold software. Here are some of my 3d work, where I attempted to put a bit of myself into my pictures.

Enjoy!

To see more of my 3d work, please go to part two: Spiritual Pictures.

Part three: Romantic Pictures, is here.

And in her eyes...

My tricks were in tilting her head, making her look directly at you, and making that hint of a smile. But if it moves you, it's art!

      Yes, I should, seeing that a lot can be done with free software and tools. Thanks, Hazel!

      You are not inept, you are my friend!

      I just happened to have great tools, that's all. Anybody can be creative, if they put in the hours. I am going to write a 'how anybody can draw' kind of hub soon. I seriously believe anybody can!

      Man, You are truly gifted. I wish I could learn to draw and paint like that. But I am inept.

      All The Best.
