'The Falling Suit' Triptych by ThePpeGFX 'The Falling Suit' Triptych by ThePpeGFX
'The Falling Suit' Triptych

Ignoring the whistle of empty air, there was the tired fluttering of a wayward tie. The briefcase, however, made no noise. No noise when it was held, nor when it was clutched and cradled. With a fumble, the briefcase slipped away and, in that moment, he knew that no matter what noise he made, he would never hold it again.

I've got to say I do love a good triptych. The relationship between each scene can really tell a story and appeals to the comic reader in me. This was meticulously painted on anodized aluminium, as layers can all too easily lift away with subsequent layers you've laid down.

This is a commission but if you're interested in having painted, let's have a chat about ideas. I say it time and again but it's fun to talk about ideas and stories, there's no obligation to go through with an idea after throwing them around.

You done any painting recently mate or are you focusing on the 3D modelling for the moment?

I haven't, unfortunately. I moved and have to make do with a 25m2 studio and no place to paint (without soaking my entire room in paint fumes). So I did some cutting, but painting will have to wait for better times :(

Aah man, that's a real pain. I don't want to even think what I'd do without a studio space, where making a mess isn't a worry.

I really don't like smelling paint fumes, it gives me a headache pretty quickly, so I understand that predicament as well...

...not to mention all the paint dust you get everywhere when it settles.

Exactly. I don't even have a balcony or anything. I'd kill for a dedicated place for painting where I can make a terrible mess.

Hard to imagine that I didn't use any protection during my first year of stenciling :/ It does give headaches, absolutely. And in the end probably a brain tumor.

Yeah, I was using those shitty 'surgeon' masks at first. It may reduce the amount of particles you inhale but it does bugger all to stop the vapour. Adding scents to spray paint isn't going to fool me for a moment, hah.

These surgeon masks actually don't stop anything from the outside. They do, however, somewhat stop the bacteria and whatnot that you exhale. So you won't have to worry about giving your cans of paint a cold. Isn't that a relief? I got one of those 3M Pro masks now, with replaceable filters. They're really neat and you'll be safe when SARS strikes again.

Regarding the scents.. they say MTN 94 smells good. I don't know, but it smells just as god awful as any other paint to me?

I use 3M disposable ones. I tried getting ones that use replaceable filters but they felt damned uncomfortable and if I'm going to be wearing one for six or seven hours, it has to be snug.

And 94 doesn't smell any better but it does have a scent, to my nose, it's like vanilla.

Would you explain how do you do the shadows, or is secret master technique?

I won't give it all away but the shadow is just another stencil, which is held a centimetre or two away from the surface of whatever you're painting. Sometimes I use a transparent 'mystic' paint, sometimes I'll use a darker shade of whatever I painting a shadow onto. A lot of it hinges on can technique and that simply takes practice.
