Will Massive Voodoo die?

by Roman aka jar

Hello Jungle,

well, well, well ...

The answer is simple: no!

Will it change?

Yes.

Why?
The jungle seems a little empty these days and still a little noise is made here and there. Not by many monkeys these days as life keeps everyone in a thight grip.



I am still here :)

... but I also see Massive Voodoo losing some energies since the early days of 2018. Not in a bad way. Do not get me wrong. There are still so many tasks to do, so many plans made together as the MV Team and so many good vibes to spread, but time is missing for everyone. Somehow the blog has to grow older beside the men or man running it :D

I for my part decided that I can not held up the pace I did for several years with posting kind of daily.
Life, priorities and other things kept my heart and mind distracted and I decided to break my time I can put into the MV jungle down to one or maximum three blog posts a week. Depending on my mood. This is a routine I would like to run when posting alone in here. Once in a while there will be another monkey writing something I am pretty sure and also some guest monkeys will drop their articles. I am pretty sure.

The Massive Voodoo pace will change.

Therefore I have to put my mind on ease. With Massive Voodoo I always feel a little bit of anxiety and expectations on my shoulder as our readers might want more and more and more. In 2018 these expectations were not matched, even I tried to get up on my feet again and again or rise from the ashes as a phoenix.. I know that these expectations are not there. They are putting pressure on me from my inside. So I am going back to the thing I can do best: Open my heart to it to let it go.

I decided for my work and time I can put in Massive Voodoo that I will focus on the quality of blogposts again. This means quantity gets less, but quality rises up. This year we got two contests ready for you, already planned behind the curtains and soon to be announced. A lot of link ups and photo repairs have to be done in the tutorial section and workshop area. This will happen. In its own pace. Not with pressure from myself.

Still there are points to catch up with.
I want to excuse myself for the long waiting time on workshop reviews and mainly for still missing parcels from MV's 2017 challenge. I will sent these out this week. Priorites first, but I also have to skip some things I was trying to force myself to catch up with from the past, for example 75 tutorials and step by steps I could write right now of models I have painted in the last two years. I just do not find the time for putting all these out. I am pretty sure I will do one or two here and there when the muse for writing strikes me, but without it it just would be hollow and that is not what I write up.


My personal focus via MV
will be mainly on teaching, private coachings and workshops. This is what I can do best and what my 2do lists yell at me these days. So much to plan, organise and finish behind the curtains.


If you want to join one of these seminars,
feel invited to check back with

Once in a while I will definatly drop a finished model or a tutorial I am sure.

So, until then.
Stay tuned.
Do not expect too much :D

... but happy painting will be back!
Promised.

Roman

SBS: Painting a lion on canvas

by Roman aka jar

Painting a lion on canvas 

Not much to tell on this beautiful wednesday,
but I did not want to keep the jungle too silent though :)


A while back I painted a lion on canvas.
Done with mainly acrylics.






Time to dry out before I can continue.


Some days later ...
Creative processes need their own time. May it be on figures, in a your sketch book, in your mind, in your brain and on your actual projects.






Oh my gawd. Eyes fail!


I really enjoyed the sunlight situation on this photo ...


Decided to use it as inspiration while continueing ...


Called it done.


I hope you enjoy this little walkthrough. Mainly pictures speaking, I know.
Funny thing is, that the process I paint on canvas is not far from my process I do when painting figures. From rough and wild to sharp and detailed.

Happy Painting to you!
