KJSDFJLDSKFJSDKFJDKFSDFKJSDLFK I CANNOT get a good photo of this thing!
So this is another pet portrait commission, 8"x10" of the most gorgeous golden retreiver I've ever laid eyes on. Gypsy. Still need to fiddle with the file to get it as close to the real thing, but the actual piece has a softer feel to it, with really warm glowing colours on the fur.
Interested in having a pet portrait of this style done by me? I have a link of Etsy with all the information, as well as the price. [link]
A rather large custom painting for my friend's sister, of her boyfriend's Great Dane, Joya.
I LOVE that dog. Freaking GORGEOUS.
Got sick of this because I spanned it over too many weeks, trying to find time to work on it. Feels good to finish it. Feels even better to get replies like "OHMYGOD THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE IT" when you message the commissioner a pic.
Its done entirely with acrylic paint, on an 11"x14" stretched canvas.
It is so bloody hard to take good photos of large, semi-shiny pieces. And pieces with straight lines. Regardless of how careful I was, the edges of the canvas bowed out, and the lines of the deck were shifted. Had to fix with photoshop, which I don't like doing.
Actually have five minutes to upload this. A commission that I had to finish yesterday 'cause I'm leaving today. Also have another painting that I had to get done last night but didn't take photos of it (commission for a friend of the family of a cross, on feathers)
12"x16" canvas, acrylic paints.
WIP seen here (with awful yellowish lighting - ick)
Inspired by Idlewild. More specifically, Halloween, but I suppose the cover of the book helped. It needs to be read again. I do love that book.
Its been awhile since I've painted, so I gave this a go last night. Tried finishing it anyhow, this is about three weeks old, I was kinda wary about the state of the paper under the masking fluid. It was fine though.
No references, and painted entirely with watercolours.
This didn't take as long as I thought it would, but then again, when you work in huge block intervals of 5+ hours to get it done... My camera picked up on some weird textures that aren't nearly as obvious on the actual piece. Weird.
I still need to fix a few things before I send this away, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. And there you go Eva, there is your eye. xP My very last step.
I just realized how terrible the quality is of the photo. I'll get a better one tomorrow when it's actually LIGHT
Music sure does wonders for art. I'm pretty sure the only things I listened to while working on this was stuff by Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, and "Passenger" by Deftones featuring MJK), Trivium, and Three Days Grace's new album (gave each of their songs a once-over, then let them be. They've definitely lost something...makes me sad. :c) Tool especially has a certain magic that will allow me to work for hours without losing focus. Or allows me to work without flipping through songs. Any Tool song is earcandy. <3
