My monster for Sunday. I could push this even more if I could keep my eyes open… I have the night owl curse,. I skipped doing monsters on Friday and Saturday.There just wasn’t enought time to paint due to the plans I had this weekend. Starting this week, I will work on a monster for two days instead of one. The first day will be research, prelims, and sketches (which will be uploaded). The second day will be the actual painting.
Yet again I decide to do my doodle near my bed time. I am too tired to draw this late at night and yet I do it over and over again. I wasn’t too happy with this doodle, the comp wasn’t working for me so I ended it early tonight. 20 min. Because of finals I am very behind in uploading artwork I have done. I will catch up when my final assignments for this semester are over.
From now on, every still life painting will have stomach turning punny title.
A still life study of a bear skull I saw at a zoo. 30 minutes is not enough time to paint something as complex as this. I should of done a cool down and done some blending.
Dragon Saturday is approaching…..
I just plum forgot to do a Still life yesterday. Sorry about that :(. Also I noticed I have some comments. I promised to respond tomorrow morning.
Feedback is welcome 🙂
Dragon Saturday is.. wait.. I already said that..
I finally completed a painting of Alex Hawkenstone, the main protagonist of my story. I went though many color experiments with the clothing to get something I was satisfied with. She is a norden, a people that live in the snowy mountains of the north. She is no warrior, has no super powers, cannot cast a spell, nor can she shape shift. However, she has her wits about her at all times. Something she puts to use with eerie precision. She starts out uncertain of herself, but gains confidence throughout the story. I want her to grow with the reader. This is less of a coming of age story. It is more about ordinary people put into epic and extraordinary circumstances, and coming out on top. I painted it in Photoshop using a drawing tablet. It took about four hours total to paint. five hours if you count researching the clothing.
update: adjusted the colors from cool to warm to better match her personality.
Meet Rock. Engineer, author, movie star, philanthropist, and future president. I’m honored to have Rock in my presence to paint. It was amazing! He stood perfectly still! True Story: I was walking my dog at dusk. When the walk was finished I realized that I was going to paint rocks this week (Why rocks? Painting a small rock = painting a cliff or rocky mountain), so I grabbed random rocks in the dark and brought them home. For this painting I just used the stock soft round that comes with Photoshop. Self Critique: edges need to be sharpened up more.
Feel free to give feedback and more rock puns.
Time Spent : 1 hour and then some
Created from scratch in Photoshop using a wacom tablet.
