Trey Murray's Artwork

​Artwork can be inspirational, uplifting, or emotional, whether it is written, drawn, sung, or painted. I draw inspiration for my art through ​everyday interaction with people, places, and things around me. As you may be able to tell, my drawing​s seem to center around anime, animated series, and other activities I find myself interested in.

Poet​ry by Trey Murray

The poetry I write comes from a number of experiences I have in activities such as martial arts, current events, social topics, and personal emotional events. While I often find I suffer from writers' block, when I do feel passionate about an issue, I find the words flow. I am working more toward making my writings a regular hobby.

​In the near future, I hope to add other writings such as short stories, novel previews and excerpts, and other written projects I intend to get to in the coming years. In the meantime, you can find some of my thoughts about my relationship with God by clicking the 'God' link in the header.

Drawing​ Artwork by Trey Murray

​My drawing​s are, for the most part, line art I managed to sketch out doing tutorials from various websites. When I finally did start looking at references and drawing out what I saw, I found I seem to have a problem with getting perspective right. I will continue to put more of my drawing​s up here, but this is more of a labor of love than anything I feel I can make a habit out of.

​I am watching YouTube videos ​to learn more about shading and contrast. ​These two pieces of composition are key to making drawings more life like and eye catching, in my opinion. ​My labor is centered around working at making the drawings more in perspective. I​t seems that working in grayscale for now may be beneficial until I can master these concepts.
