The Sea Serpent (D22) (Wip)

ten songs painting wip

While I don’t usually try to mix my dailies with my projects, I’m so busy that I kind of have to from now on. This painting is a WIP . There are some elements that I haven’t decided yet, like if she should be holding a egg or a pearl. If it was an egg it wouldn’t be the sea dragon’s because it’s too small.

The art will be used for my next music album “10 Songs”, a project I’ve been working of an on since I finished Alptraum.

Armadilo Barbarian Sketch (Daily Monster: 06 out of 30)


The daily monster painting has been a two edged sword. It’s given me the motivation to paint and explore but because of time restraints I do not have time to fully research material for my subjects. This means the anatomy and potential variations suffer. I will try to figure something out. For example I love the face but the clothing is very plain because I had time to skech armadillos but not any time to research clothing. I might lengthen the project to give me a extra day to do some research and prelims for each character.

Character 3 – Paintball Warrior (Final)


Here is a much more refined painting/ sketch. I plan on taking the time on my future characters. I’ve been down a bit with my art. It made me feel good that I can still paint. What I discovered from this drawing is to do passes. First block in the main shapes with a big brush, then shrink your brush about half and do another pass and add smaller shapes and so on. Once you get to a really small brush, put your effort in the focal points of your image.

I only used one brush. It is a custom round brush, the only difference to that of a normal round, is that I added transfer and put a super light texture onto the brush. I disabled brush size pressure because I have less control and I’m not inking lines. I find it’s best to have either brush pressure size or brush pressure transparency on. But not both, because it adds another element you have to deal with. Keep things simple.

I spent 3-4 hours on this painting. Image reference was by erian_stock.

Daily Painting No.31 – Still Life 2


still life pepper shaker and box

Another Still life. I was hoping to get another dragon done but it didn’t happen I was working on two paintings this evening, one being this still life, the other being that of a dragon. I will attempt to finish it for tomorrows daily. Currently I am not really interested in speed at this time, but of correctly rendering the light. I also decided to work on two paintings simultaneously so I can have a ‘fresh eye’ when I alternate to each painting. I am too tired to self critique myself tonight. I will review it tomorrow. let me know what you think about it. any input is appreciated.

2 and a half hours : Photoshop using the soft round brush and eraser only. I will be uploading the dragon and some sketches of elephants tomorrow.
