Every Tuesday I hope to show you what I have been working on and walk you through it step by step ^^
For this first edition I had a last minute project I HAD to work on as well...I thought it was due the day after. So I rushed quickly through everything and documented the beginnings of the crazy "beginnings of a painting" here for you!
|waste not, want not! my scary fairy gets remade :P|
|shamefully promoting winsor newton gesso hehe|
The gesso I use is: Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic White Gesso. I remember thinking it was pretty expensive for such a small bottle, but its actually lasted me a LONG time with plenty more go in it!
|an amazing digital painting by 0Effe0 found on deviantart|
|paint tool sai is the program i prefer best for sketching. the tools are alot easier to use.|
|credit to the original artist is due here! but...it was a quick google search...sorry artist.|
|final deer girl sketch! minus the whack-a-doodle hand|
|my poor computer. i abuse it so much. but its love, i swear.|
|you gotta love that deer booty|
|because this is what trees look like in the back of my mind :D|
I mixed them on different levels and slowly worked my way into the figure.
I tried keeping the trees especially grey so in the end they wouldnt get too neon bright (something i do alot and too often!)
|fast and furious leaf making!|
|i love the color combo light red and green ^^|
hair: Crimson Red - Cadmium Yellow - Titanium White - Burnt Umber
And there you have it! Thats as far as I got last night before I passed out and was happy to hear this morning they got the date of submissions wrong and its in a month. Not today :P Thank goodness for that. You can see here finally I added all the basic colors straight up, and from here on out I will start to slowly add in details, starting with her skin and perhaps the trees, giving the painting more definition until I am satisfyed :D
Thanks everyone for tuning in to this weeks Painting with Planties! See you next week ;)
