Analog Art #
What makes it ‘analog’ #
So, for OpGuides I’m going to refer to any non-digital art as analog. Traditionally, this art is called, well, traditional. I don’t like this term as it implies that there’s a right ’traditional’ way to do things, and that’s a load of shit. So, whenever I say analog, don’t think about it to much. I just mean not using software and a computer, or, if a computer is used, it’s not necessary for the end product, like 3D printing and the like.
Pen/Pencil and Paper #
Paper types, lead weight, transfer paper, pen types (+caligraphy), erasers, etc.
clay + different types (water, air-dry, oil, polymer, epoxy, earthen/stone, ceramic, ) , sand, sawdust, paper, plastics, + ovens/kilns
Fabrics and Fashion #
While I haven’t done this personally, based on the sheer amount of content on YouTube and hearing others experianec making stained glass aren’t isn’t nearly as hard as one would assume
On the other hand, it seems that making from-scractch, hand-blowing, or re-flowing glass trinkets is exceptionally difficult.
I’m not saying any of this to disuade you from trying anything, just stating where you may want to start.
