WoOoW mashaallah sis your art is increadibly beautiful :wub:, especially those first attached colored paintings are my favorite, keep up the good work!
I've got a lot of drawings but can't share my art since they're non-islamic, mostly detailed anatomically outlines of the human body or skeleton...well, this one seems decent, no harm in sharing it! It's an old handmade drawing except the pencil on the background is coloured in photoshop.

Thank you :)

Yes unfortunately most of my art isn't Islamic either, it's mostly just random stuff but I'd really like to build up a large portfolio of Islamic art because I think that'd be more productive of me. Plus Islam is my life, why wouldn't I use my art to express something I'm so passionate about.

Your drawing is BEAUTIFUL! The intricate details are so nice and the picture is so peaceful to look at! I really like your style MashAllah :D Edited by hameedeh

Google Salva Rasool, she does a bunch on Contemporary Calligraphic Islamic Art. She has a website of her own where she has some of her works. I am attaching a link to her facebook artwork page to see her work. And by the way she's ma Moms........

Thank you! I love it! I love her style, it's almost folksy with the textured blocks of color. I want to copy her!

She's your mom?? What a cool mom... is she always busy painting? Does she use oil paint to do most of her art?


She is in Iran right now as she was invited to exhibit her works there. Well yes she is busy painting all day in her studio. My Dad's a commercial artist too and I am pursuing Art Direction for Games, Animation and Live-Action Films. Its really cool to see Art enthusiast in the Shia Community. We need more youth to take up Art/Media/Entertainment so that the right message is potrayed in a deserving manner(personal opinion). Do you also pursue Art?? Edited by hameedeh

A Graphic Artist is more into the Advertising industry. According to whatever I have been exposed to I personally feel that doing Art, building up a portfolio is always the best thing to do. Building a TOP CLASS, and i mean really good, more like industry standards where a director of a huge Game or Movie can hire you as a Concept Artist is the BEST THING TO DO. In this manner one can literally get hands down experience of doing Art which is so important and more importantly so much FUN. After Industry experience one can always branch into teaching. Most of the pros out there follow this patter. Again these are my opinions.

We should kind of arrange of start a forum so that our Community youth who pursue Art can get in touch, share work, experience and build their skills. From my side I dont know anyone(youth) from the community who does Art as pursuing Art is firstly considered a Taboo in the Indian Shia Commnity and secondly its considered a low paying way of life. Any one from your side??

Do you do Art, i mean have a Blog, update stuff like that. Well i am in the process of building a portfolio so mine is really amateur. A longggg way to go but anyways here's mine

Checked your work out, real good stuff. But you need to keep it going. Trying being motivated at all times(mann thats real difficult) and set yourself a benchmark. A good way of doing that is by looking at some real good artist's work. Check www.cghub.com for instance. I cry every time I check this website, the work is SKY HIGH....

^^ Literally translated the arabic: 'When will your noor rise, O Awaited One' (referring to Imam Al Mahdi ÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ, and on the stone (upside down) it says: 'Al Ajjal Ya Mawlai' (Hasten, O Master)

It's beautiful indeed.

jannahismygoal, post 17: map on apple in cage and stairs

 

From the old saying of young people, "the World is my Apple"

 

The idea/fantasy that the "World is My apple" is (really) a cage which kept me (past tense because the artist realizes their past condition) from the "stairway to Heaven" (Led Zepplin song, 1971)

 

Now uncaged, the artist can persue their faith.
