Digital Painting 2017 – “Oracle”

This painting is called “Oracle.” I’m embarking on a totally new artistic adventure: translating my artwork into digital painting. For a long time, I’ve wanted to invest in a new tablet, and get painting again. I recently got a new Intuos Pro, and have gone absolutely wild since.

It’s been a long time since I’ve worked like this. I’m not sure I really remember how, and on top of that, my style has grown and changed so much since 2008–when I finished my last digital painting.

I originally started this as an effort to learn faces, and to do some practicing. I began tracing this photo: (from this post)

Then I decided to have a little fun with it. It got out of control after that. I’m eager to start learning how to do this again.

The black and white line art for this image will be available in the coloring book that I’m releasing later in the year. (Stay tuned.)
