Daily Paint 26 – Acrylic Sea Monster


I went out of my comfort zone attempted the daily painting in acrylic. After 2 hours of frustration, I called it a day. to save my canvas paper I attempted to paint on transparent film. It was a big mistake as I couldn’t blend color well, and the paint refused to stay on the film. I color adjusted the image and fixed the snout with the liquify tool .

Dragon Marker Speed Sketch with Demonstration Video

I was asked previously to show my sketching process. I decided to draw something that I draw often for practice and that is a dragon’s head. The demonstration is in real time and not sped up. I drew completely out of my imagination. The video runs for around 19-20 minutes and features some strange ambient music I created using Nodebeat. I am thinking of uploading some more demonstrations (perhaps my digital painting process if I ever can save up for FRAPS) and even some tutorials in the future.

The markers I used are : A Ultra Fine Sharpie, Sketch and Wide Copic markers W3, and a cool gray set of Spectrim Noir alcoholic markers.

Here is the finished sketch:
