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..
I am trying to loosen up and be more imaginative with my artwork. I’ve been too much in my comfort zone with Photoshop so for today’s painting i used a open source app called Krita so I would feel uncomfortable. Krita however is surprisingly similar to Photoshop in many ways. The only thing I haven’t figured out is setting up actions. About the painting. I had no sketch or idea ahead of time. I just scribbled around until something appeared. It’s a eel water salesman that wants to sell you artisan water ! However you only get 5 lives and if you want to play more you must give him money. He also owns the trademark to ‘water’.
45 minutes. Krita .
I’m having second thoughts about changing my daily painting project to a still life/ portrait academic thing. I am currently taking art classes at this time so I have plenty of ‘academic’ projects. So I am using my daily painting project to explore ideas and be more imaginative in my process. Effective So there are only two limitations I will put on my self : 1. I must spend at least 30 minutes on a painting and 2. It must be a new painting every day. I will see how this goes for about 30 paintings. I still have 271 paintings to go 0_0.
I went to the zoo all day today and filled up my sketchbook with animal sketches. One fish made a particular impression on me called the arapaima. I got back late and had very little time to paint, so I whipped up this sketch from my memory of the fish in about 15-20 minutes. I noticed I have some comments I need to respond to . Forgive me but I am too tired, I will respond tomorrow. Goodnight everyone.
