Daily Painting No.51- Knight in Shining Armor (Still Life)

knight in armor still life dragon slayer

So far since I started this blog a year ago, I have made 78 dragon paintings/artwork , that’s insane! So with all those crazy fire breathing reptiles lurking on my blog, I could use some protection :D. Seriously though, I found this sculpture of a knight at a thrift store a while back. I did top local lighting and set it up at a low vanishing point to make the knight look strong and intimidating. 1 knight vs 78 dragons. righhht. Painted from scratch in Photoshop using a wacom graphics tablet. I spent about a hour and a half on this so far.

My blog needs more knights. 😀

Daily Painting No.38 Elephant and Bowl

elephant still life bowl digital paint

Time for more still life practice. I found this cheap $1 elephant children’s toy at a dollar store. I set it on top of my bowl and the rest is history. Feel free to comment or critique me. Self critique: I spent most of the time on the elephant and it is much more defined then the bowl. I am very pleased with the elephant. some artifacts left from erasing need to be removed. Bowl needs more refinement. Time spent 1 hour 45 minutes. Painted in photoshop.
