Day 75- Rescue at last

Out of control

I haven’t posted for like a week now. The last poll was “Thank goodness they finally sent someone. Things are getting out of control!”. And I had no idea what I would do. So, this morning I just sat down a started sketching. This is what I ended up with. I added the 2 streak lens flares to give the picture more of a sci fi look.

Alright, so, I painted this today from the prompt “From the sea, beasts awoke”, which was one of the options in the last poll. I’m still not too great at water, but I would say what I did here is acceptable.

Also, I updated the front page of my site yesterday, along with a bunch of other pages. They should look a good deal nicer. I updated my video as well, which is linked to though a button on the front page. You can see it on my youtube channel here.

Day 72- Like music on the waters

This is relatively my first time painting water, liquid even, and I like how it came out. That’s why I put the extra pic of just the water above. I’m not too happy with the cloud dude, and I’m just now realizing I put way too much detail into him. I should have painted him more vaguely.

Day 64- Bread (Portrait)

Another painting… A creepy painting. I like it though. And I learned a lot about shading through the process.

I was going for an “old portrait” look, but I think if I wanted to really push that, I should have desaturated the painting and added a frame, maybe with some background items, and an old paper grunge overlay. I don’t think it’s worth going that far though.

Anyway, vote for what you want me to draw tomorrow below:

Beyond the Mask Fan Art

Beyond the Mask Art

Hi there! I didn’t get to make a daily post today, but I recently saw Beyond the Mask, and decided to create some fan art for it. It took me pretty much the whole day to complete, and unfortunately, after exporting everything, I accidentally deleted the file with all the separate layers. 😦 Total bummer. I could probably edit the pic decently if I ever needed to, and I saved a couple different versions, but it still isn’t fun to have hours and hours of work flattened accidentally. So yeah… I have two versions here, you can click on either one of them to make them bigger. The one above is the original, and below is one for use as a desktop background. And yes, he doesn’t have a mouth, this is for a few reasons: I didn’t really know how to execute it without messing the pic up, it looks cool… to me and I’m too lazy to try.Beyond the Mask Art (Desktop With Logo)

As for the process, I made the orange, out-of-focus explosion-thing behind him by downloading an explosion pic and putting it in blender. In Blender, I used a defocus node with the heptagon type set (Which is the same kind they used in the movie, yes… I counted the corners of the unfocused light while in the theater. 🙂 ). Then I exported the result, put it in sketchbook and used a custom brush I made to make more, clear heptagons. That was the explosion. I’m not sure how long it took me to paint Will (The man), I tried keeping track, but between work and small breaks, I gave up. I like how most of it came out, the hat, his cloths (particularly the crease in the back of his right elbow, his blowing coat and the buttons). I know all the clothing isn’t completely accurate, I used miscellaneous pics from the site, and snapshots I took from the trailer. There are some parts of him I didn’t like after, but I can live with it. Iv’e only just started trying this style of art, so I’m sure there is some improvement to be made. But all in all, I like it.

Day 62- Dolphin Painting

Dolphin painting

Just a test-ish project today. Iv’e never really tried going for a painted look before, so I decided to test the synthetic paint brushes in sketchbook and this is what happened. Not my favorite, but better than I thought I would do.
