Sad ChipRom

Today was a bad day. A bunch of little things happened.. and then my car broke down. I was stranded for a couple hours int he middle of nowhere before my father could come to my aid. Pack rats are most likely the cause. My dad helped me replaced the damaged hoses but there is still something wrong with the car.

While waiting for the tow truck, I painted this on my Android Tablet using Artflow. It is of ChipRom feeling as down as I am. For some reason I felt better after drawing this.

Daily Painting No.69 – Gryphon Drinking

gryphon drinking your troubles away

This poor gryphon has had a rough time. Dare you sit with him and hear his woes? I’ve have this fascination with giving the animals I paint human like feelings. The question is can I a make the viewer feel sorry for a monster? I painted this entirely out of my imagination, no references. I didn’t even do any thumbnail sketches. It is also one of my first back lighting comps.

I postponed my rock still life painting because I am taking a composition workshop at conceptart.org. My next three daily paintings will be my homework assignments. I’ve already seen improvements in my work taking this workshop. I’m now thinking of important design concepts while I’m painting and not leaving anything to ‘chance’. every stroke on my canvas means something. It’s also a relief to know I don’t have to paint every detail in a painting, and what I should focus my attention to. If I get my focal points set up correctly, I do not need to do much to the falloff, and my painting will still look finished.

1 hour; Painted from scratch in photoshop.

Dragon Lung (eastern dragon) looking into the sky

A eastern style dragon looking into the sky disjointedly I was going to develop the dragon into a finished painting yet got bored with it. I croped him down so the unfinished tail is no longer in the picture. This painting will remain unfinished.
