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)
3 o'clock in the morning scribbles. Inspired by my fave artist ever, yet her pieces don't contain this much creep. Hers are magical.
Did manage to impress my boyfriend though. He left for like 15 minutes and by the time he got back I was already over halfway finished (having started about 5 minutes after he left). So total, about 30 mins? And done entirely with a simple black ballpoint pen. SPEEEEEEEEEEED D8
And uh...supposed to be an apocalypse'd city on his head. I'm not very good with cityscapes. :C
Where can I buy fancy paper? I want fancy paper. I also want to dye my own paper with tea, and then draw on said handmade fancy tea papers. Mmyep.
An entry for a rather large contest, wish me luck!!
So my little sister was hanging down on our dock a couple weeks ago and happened to spot something that we have NEVER seen in the area before: a River Otter. My parents have lived in our yard for 27 years (and we are always outside), they have never seen one before here, we didn't think they existed in our river! We suspect that this little dude may just be cruising through, since we haven't seen him (or her?) since. My sis was lucky enough to have her camera with her, and was kind enough to let me use her pics for reference.
The only part I actually referenced was the otter, and the front half only (back end was covered in greenery). I wing'd all of the foliage, the shoreline and the water. Whew. Challenging to make things look realistic sometimes when you don't have a ref.
So all painted with acrylics on a piece of watercolour paper.
Hmm. This looks really dark on this computer. It looked a lot lighter on my other laptop...gah.
Commission for Her knote, Whimsique. Such pretty flowing fur, so fun to paint. Very difficult to get a good shot of this one, both scanner and camera did funny things. There is thread stitching over the eyes like requested, and I used some silvery iridescent paint in a few spots, like the buckle, eyes, horns and splatters in the background.
I told Stine that miss Blood would be very lucky if she got this LOL I have fallen in love with it XD I was wishing at first that I had some lighter greens, but I very much like the way it came out. I think I drew the wings too biiig. XD
This is a bookmark commission for the very sweet, thanks again! <3 I adore your creatures 83
A very very very long overdue commission for `ShePaintsWithBlood. It so overdue that I'm too embarrassed to admit how long it's been put off...
She asked me to paint her a Knote, which is a creature she created. Well, I was given SO MUCH artistic freedom I struggled to come up with a concept to paint. I decided to just... go with it; which is an idea I have another friend to thank for.
I decided to paint one of my ultimate desires: I want to go to the beach. I love the beach, especially when it's about to rain and it's especially windy. So.. that's what I painted!
I also wanted the Knote to blend in with its surroundings thoroughly without being completely hidden. He's not supposed to be the first thing you notice, so for all you design majors out there, don't fret!
Besides all that... I hope you like it Aria! Forgive me for the delay! I do love you so much for being patient
Ah, I'm sorry this took so long =ShePaintsWithBlood ! D:> My life is just extremely full at the moment, the only time I had to finish this was while I was sick. xD I barely even had time to be sick.
I'm so sorry, I know his colors are off/different. But I just love the painting you did of him! I wanted to try and capture/combine the two color coats, but I think I failed.
Please let me know if you are displeased with it at all, and I will make another portrait of him. Thank you for your patience.
