Daily Painting No.64 – Best Friends Forever (Part 2)

best friends forever bff

Got a bitt farther on this piece. Spent most of my time painting the focal point, which is the heads of the allosaurus and horse. It’s a interesting contrast in detailing these two creature. The horse needs to have smooth gradations while the allosaurus needs small, contrasting brush strokes. I find the best way to give the horse smooth gradations is the soft round brush. I set up a new layer, paint with a large soft round like a airbrush, and then erase the excess paint. I was hoping to get farther then I did. I will finish this piece on Sunday. 1 hour 10 minutes (2 something hours total) Painted from scratch using Photoshop and a wacom tablet.

Daily Painting No.58- Allosaurus in a Jar 2: The Dino Strikes Back

allosaurus stuck in a jar captured tf no sad

My painting is coming along. refined the allosaurus and and dirt a bit more. I still have the left side of the jar and the lid area to finish. A interesting thing about One you start refining the details, time flies like nothing. Any feedback is appreated.  Allosaurus where pretty savage hunters.. and had no feathers. On a differnt side of the coin, a discovery of a late tyrannosaur fossil… had feathers.. lots of them. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/04/yutyrannus-huali-feathers/ Now it is debated in certain circles of scientists if our beloved killing machine, the Trynasssourus Rex had feathers as well. If it did that would make it resemble a chicken. I don’t think a giant chicken would scare me in Jarassic Park 4000. So far I have spent about 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Daily Painting No.44 -Stegosaurus on Fabric (Still Life)

Stegosaurus dino still life painting fabric t shirt painting digital art

A still life painting. For the study, I setup a 1$ stegosaurus toy I purchased at a dollar store and placed it on top of a rolled up t shirt. I enjoyed painting this.  I’m getting better at details and refinement. My studies are starting to pay off. If I had another hour, I could make the fabric look as detailed as the dinosaur. But since it’s almost 2am, I really need to sleep. I painted this from scratch using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. I spent a hour and forty minutes on this still life. As always feel free to critique or comment on this piece if you like 🙂
