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.)

 

 

Marker Art #73: Queen

This one is called Queen. It’s obviously taken a while to get it all together. It’s a big one, and I’d say the details are worth a second click. 🙂 I promised myself that I’d complete an image in Lent. Been drawing a little bit more than usual, so I’m hoping to have more to share soon.

Marker Art #70: Ponderous

070 - ponderous - h1000This image is another classroom doodle from the end of my coursework. I colored it after graduation, but most of it was inked in the last portion of my graduate degree. Just thinking, mostly. Just moving along. I played with the color scheme a little bit. I don’t usually use the sea green, the purples, and that tan color. The purples are a Shinhan marker that I really like. I’m going to be very sad when it runs out of ink, because I’m not sure if I can get them locally cheaply and easily.

Buy a print on Fine Art America.

 

Marker Art #69: Clocktower

069 - clocktower - h1000Yes, the date on that says April. And yes, this is now August 30th, almost September. And yes, I have been really, really bad at scanning things. But, life happens. This is another classroom doodle that I came to really like. It looks sort of clock-like to me, so I call it Clocktower. Pair of faces looking over a wheel of time…or a wheel of city traffic. Or both.
