After practicing a wave tutorial on Art Academy. I wanted to make my own wave painting. I am extremely happy with this painting for some reason.
I need to do more of these environment story paintings. This painting came from just playing around with shapes until something appeared. That thing is this sea monster fish. It looks much more lively and interesting then my last sea monster painting in 2013. I think I leveled up a little. An hour more or less
Environment Speed Painting 4. I noticed I have to be in the correct ‘mode’ to paint these. I attempted and abandoned 3 paintings beforehand. When it comes to setting up a painting I was given this helpful advice : When blocking a painting, if the design is not pleasing and coming together after 10 minutes or so, start over. I had done a similar painting a while back with a giant squid sneaking up on a fishermen. It was fun to approach the idea with different characters and in a different way. The splatter and charcoal brushes are becoming my pals. This is definitely one painting I should finish.
