T-Rex with Robotic Limbs (D18)

cyborg-dino-doodle

A T-rex with firey feathers and robotic appendages. Nothing is more epic.

Painting in mass instead of line has really helped me loosen up. My mass sketches look better then my line sketchs. I think it’s because I can focus more on the shapes then the contours. I need to keep pushing myself to improve.

Myself as a Stegosaurus (D5)

There is a time in everyone’s life when they ask themselves the ultimate question: What would I look like if I was a dinosaur?…. and then disappointment ensures.

Still Life 10 – Glue Bottle in MS Paint

still life in ms paint

Trying to get out of my comfort zone. I had this glue bottle on my desk and decided to paint a still life of it. I asked myself “What is the most uncomfortable way to paint this thing? I know! MS Paint with only the pencil tool and the default pallet!” MS paint has no wacom sensitivity or transparency and a stupid loading circle would show up every time I pressed down onto the tablet. There are some new brushes available but they are a joke and have no control options. when I was a kid i used to make pixel art with it because it has decent zooming tools. you can still make some great work with it if you are patient (I’m not). What is disappointing about ver 6.1 is that the halftone patterns are gone. it would of helped allot with this painting to able to use halftone gradients. It’s amazing how MS Paint is still the dinosaur of paint apps after all this time. 25 minutes.

Daily Painting No 86. – Raptor WIP 3

raptor-vs-solders3

I did some more compositional changes and less painting for this round. I still need to clean it up a bit and get it more balanced. This was Monday’s DP. Today’s DP will be uploaded tonight and will be a original painting because the wacom that I take traveling with me is not working. I have to use my iPad. *chills go down my spine* Heaven help me!  Like I said in my previous post after the 100th painting I will be doing a 100 still life paintings and portraits for a hundred days. I will spend at least 30 minutes on each painting but no more then 2 hours. But don’t worry the still life paintings will NOT be boring things like vases and flowers. It will be of awesome things like Dinosaurs, Sharks and Robots (I use allot of toys in my still life paintings, it gives a adult like me a excuse to play with them). My still life will probably only be of one subject due to time constraints.
