#AprilColors2019 07: Analogous colors.
#AprilColors2019 02: The Prettiest Insect.
April “colors” except no colors yet, hahaha… both these originals will be in the Sakura-Con art show.
Gonna try to do this new #aprilcolors2019 thingy. :o Prompt from yesterday was “ghostly.”
For a project, but the original will be in the Sakura-Con art show this weekend. Go check it out because that’s the only way to see how cool the gold ink looks!
If you’re wondering, I mostly use Niji waterbrushes because they’re thicker and easier for me to grip, and the synthetic bristles means I’m not constantly worried about ruining the tips. But I’ll swap to a nice Raphael brush for fine details because that’s really hard to do with a waterbrush.
FINALLY DONE WITH THIS.
The original painting will be up at Stone Way Cafe for the month of May as a part of the Ani-Mayhem show featuring @clevergirlfriend!! If you’re in the Seattle area, please come to the opening next Friday, the 6th! (It looks much better in person?!)
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD.
Process photos for the Jackalope.
Process photos for there is no story.
It’s impossible to photograph, even in good light, even on video, but this whole painting sort of glitters because of the gold ink. There are sparkles everywhere, not just in the yellow. I hope I have a reason to put this in a show at some point because it’s way nicer looking in person.
Process shots for Overgrowth.
Thought I took a picture of the pencils too, but I guess not, whoops. I should’ve put the tape down earlier and skipped the marker skintones, but eeeyyyy live and learn.
Process shots for Wolfsbane.
This didn’t turn out the way I wanted and I was really frustrated with it at the end, which is why I ended up throwing a bunch of textures on it. I think I should have stopped one or two shots from the end. I had a hard time with the color scheme. I know I’ll end up revisiting the idea again soon, though maybe not with watercolors.
Process photos for Inertia.
Process shots for Insincere.
And then I blew up some of the colors in Photoshop~~ though really what I should do is layer down more washes before I start detailing. Meh.
Also the smeared brown ink was totally a mistake, but I rolled with it. XD
Process shots for Seattle.
Progress shots for Crepusculum Australis.
It would be that the first time I render an aurora borealis, I do it primarily in freakin’ marker. This piece drove me freakin’ nuts in general, but I’m pleasantly surprised and pleased with the results?? The colors aren’t quite as saturated on the original, especially at the bottom, but they’re are otherwise not that far off.
The companion piece for this is alicorn Twilight, which will hopefully be finished in another day or two.
I am predictable.
The original paintings and some limited run prints will be available at Emerald City Comic Con x Ltd. Art Gallery’s MINTcondition #2 show.
Progress shots for Sentiment.
