Wyvern (Dragon with wing arms) (Monster 15)

monster-15-dragon-2

I’ve returned to the monster painting project. I thought it would be best something furn. This was painted inArtrage. I found out how to turn the ‘3d’ effect off the paints. This helped me blend the color more like I would in Photoshop. Speaking of photoshop, Artrage’s solution to masks is ‘stencils’ and they are driving me crazy, I keep accidentally moving them and cant find a way to lock them. I am happy with this quick painting and am getting closer to thinking like a painter.

Fishy Monster(Daily Monster: 10 out of 30)

fish-monster

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.

Alien Thug (Daily Monster: 09 out of 30)

Sketch of an alien thug that would work well in a toony video game. I was happy that I was able to exaggerate the shapes but still make him look coherent. The image was sketched in mypaint.

Some slimy serpent thing (Daily Monster: 08 out of 30)

daily-monster-7-1

I don’t know what dark side of my brain this abomination came from.

I was experimenting in mypaint, an open source paint app. I has a fun and quick, yet very hard to use, ‘modeling’ brush. I like the controlled randomness the brush has.

I think mypaint works great for sketching on the computer when a pen and pencil are not available.

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

Daily-Monster-06---ardvark-barbarian

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.

Daily Paint 59 – Marth (Fire Emblem)

marth gardevour

I paused Super Smash Brothers and painted this in Art Academy (3DS). This is Marth (the man on the right.. yes.. he is a guy). He is the protagonist in the first two Fire Emblem games and is a fan favorite. It’s difficult to do detail work in AC. It’s still a great app. It won’t replace Colors 3D but maybe I can import my paintings into Colors 3d and do the detail work in that program.

Daily Paint 54 – Nerdy Swampert Guy

swampert-stalker

A parody character that I might do a 4 sec short animation with. I will anthropomorphize anything. I have a coffee cup besides me.. I’m temped to anthropomorphize that as well. Somehow I forget to mirror it back during the painting process so the text is inverted..
