in #qurator2 years ago (edited)


Cover art by - @aaronleang

Welcome to the 206th SPECIAL ART Edition of the Daily Qurator. Below you will find some awesome members of @qurator that worked hard to post some good quality content for all you awesome Steemians to enjoy!

The @qurator project was created to help give Steemians some extra exposure and awesome upvotes currently worth around $0.03 - $5.25!

Note: some of you have been curated twice since the start of the daily qurator and some have been curated only once. As the Daily Qurator is gaining fame with every passing day, many new steemians are asking/will ask to join us. So, expect to see posts from new users for now. When the opportunity arises, posts from older users will be curated once again

Your Quality Curator ~( @goldendawne )~ Presents:

Art Edition!

Today is another day of theme-based featured posts. Last week I focused the special qurator edition on poetry and today my main objective is to showcase the art Qurites! If you didn't get mentioned in this post, no worries! I have plans to continue the themed special editions indefinitely. Once a week I will be picking a topic and tag to mention. So keep on posting those Dlive, Dsound, Dtube, poetry, fiction and freewrite posts, I'll be finding you one day soon.


Just like last time with our Poetry Edition we encourage everyone to post some art in the comment section below (no spamming =P). Let's fill this Art Edition full of art and share some extra upvotes for all the artists out there!

We will pick one comment and upgrade their membership with one extra upvote tier for 30 days when this post reaches payout.

Winner of the Poetry Edition: @inalittlewhile


Sketch Mountain Lake

I got a free minute at work, decided to take it as a useful thing for me... A quick sketch with a ballpoint pen Mountain lake. The mountains are my inspiration, and the water in the mountains is the purest and tastiest in the world.

Look at what @iotman did in a short time! I have no creative talent when it comes to drawing, sketching or art and I have to say, this drawing makes me want to head to a quaint and quiet mountain cabin. GREAT JOB!



Even if you might be misunderstood and people think you're a weirdo. Don't let that make you conform into something you are not. It takes courage to stand up for what you believe in, and it takes heart to follow your intuition. From personal experience I can tell you I was often misunderstood. Doing things with the right intentions doesn't mean it will be well received. Try not to worry about the outcome, else be prepared to learn from frustration
That's right you freak, you geek, you crazy whimsical hobo by the creek! I think we are at the cusp of a generation born into Freedom, we are, and need to be the change


Landing- The Second Work In NOT Competition Art Ru Steem

My second task is the work of Polish artist Jacek Yerka "Landing". While I was drawing, I realized that I have big problems with architecture and proportions

Stop over to see @fourapril's sketch and compare it to the original. WELL DONE!


Draw On Blockchain: If You Could Be A Famous Person From History

Had a casual talk with other Steemian of "If you were a great person in the past". There are many great people in the past that can't choose the only one. But she is the first one came into my mind, Lin Huiyin (1904.6.10-1955.4.1). Like her tough, intellectual and romantic but realistic

So who would you choose? What famous person would you want to talk to, know or even draw?

Other choice: Agatha Christie, Claude Monet, Marie Curie, Sherlock Holmes, Santa Claus


Art Explosion Week 34: Erotica

I had a little fun with my paints last night :) I really loved this competition.
The subjects for drawing are very good and creative. I try pictures in style that I have never tried! this picture is being drawn red pencil and acrylic paint was used

@artizm may have never attempted this type of drawing, but once you see the sketch and coloring, you'd have to think, “she's never done this before? No way! She did a FABULOUS job!”

Steemauto Curation Trail

RIP Streemian and hello Steemauto! The new curation trail is active and running! If you would like to support your fellow Qurites or just earn some extra curation feel free to join our curation trail that is active on Steemauto.

We suggest not following the trail with 100%, steemauto has 2 ways of following a trail, static or scaled. We suggest using SCALED instead of static since static votes can add up quickly and drain VP very fast. We suggest using scaled and then maybe around 25%.

Steemauto can show us who is currently on the trail and at what percentage. Looking forward to see more Qurites joining the trail in the near future! We also reward the team players and there might be a nice surprize for a lucky trailer. =P

I am an inspirational writer but I was motivated to try out my hands on drawing something when I saw the contest by @qurator and since it was limited to only registered members, I decided to take advantage and came up with this final work.

The drawing in stages
