Works in progress that will probably never made it to the finish line.
A couple months ago I had bought a few cheap watercolor tubes and now I finally used them. I am somewhat used to the water soluble pencil but the actual paint format was new to me. Some colours, like the red and blue, were a lot weaker than I expected but again, for the price I payed it’s to be expected. I’m still happy with how my experiments went and ended up. I also love how faster and easier it is to set up as well as clean and sort compared to say acrylics or oils.
I’ll surely do more of it.
I’ve painted in the drawing I had posted some time ago! I’ve posted the images of the two canvas together as well as on their own as they were planned to be shown separately but close. I’m really happy with how it turned out! Despite the greens not matching completely.
I’ve painted this at some point were I guess between the age of 8 and 12, and I still can’t get past how creepy looking this is, and I don’t think it was necessarily my goal then.
And on an unrelated note, I moved, again, recently. I’ll get back to work on Night and Heavy Behaviour soon!
Sorry the quality of the picture is low but I can only use my webcam for the moment.
I was supposed to use this canva for something super detailes and thought and elaborated… but I had a moody day and I just decided to splash ink and some paint on it and see where it would lead me.
It’s not really clear but it’s supposed to be Jeremiah, from my short comic. And also, the color on his chest was supposed to be different but I messed it and this was the best way I could salvage it.
So after about 5 or 6 years of not touching them, I’m trying acrylics again. I’ve never really been a painter, did it mostly to relax but was never particularly pleased by my work. Even though I have barely touched paint except for watercolour pencils for years, I feel that all I learned in college and by experimentation in other mediums have given me a better knowledge of how to proceed. I still don’t feel completely at ease, but for a first step, I think this is looking pretty alright. It’s the details, and blending and all that jazz that is making me a bit anxious.
Also I think I’ll go for a calmer and more neutral expression on the painting, I don’t feel like he needs to be so sad anymore, and it’s not like Chris to be anyway.
And while I’m posting my old art, have a couple other ones.
