Street Painting, Sketches, Portraits

By in black and white, color, digital, dinosaurs, men, pen and ink, sketches, watercolour, women

A little of everything here. A watercolour painting up above. Coloured pic of Jean Paul Belmondo from the movie Stavisky below. Sketches, one perhaps not so wisely coloured. I’m interested in what dinosaurs looked like, because I have the lumbering old-style beasts still stuck in my head. This Tyrannosaurus has a few feathers, which surprises […]

Pretty Pict-chas

By in color, digital, men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

Here are some digital and watercolour pictures (and blends of both) that I’ve been doing today, and over the weekend. So many things to tell about these, and there are still challenges, and important things to learn. But what’s most important is that I’m feeling comfy with the tools, and having fun. Above is using […]

I’m Still Figuring this Digital Thing Out!

By in black and white, color, digital, men, paintings, pencil, sketches, women

It will be nice when I can reliably produce images i’m happy with. Anyhow, it’s fun to play with, if a little time-consuming. I’m not a portrait type (that’s why I’m working on these!), but the machine has tools (particularly Photoshop’s “Liquefy”) which allows you to make little adjustments to a picture which would otherwise […]

I inked her and coloured her digitally from a little ball-point pen drawing, and I’m happy with it. I can get more sophisticated as I learn more little tricks. But most of the stuff works, and I can do it in a reasonable amount of time. So, hooray!

A couple of quick digital paintings I did on my little computer (an Asus EEE subnotebook) while chatting with a friend. This is good, because it means I’m generally getting more relaxed with it! Still so much to learn. Check this page, for instance. I should post most of my useful digital painting training links, […]

Zooey D.

By in digital, pencil, women

Trying to draw portraits. I’m cozy in pencil (not so cozy drawing likenesses!). I wonder if it’s bastardization to try and colour a drawing this way, but I’m also practicing my digital chops. Not the prettiest image, technically, but it’s part of my artistic self-education, so I’m putting it up here. I wanted to draw […]

Hey Look, It’s Me!

By in digital, ruttan's place, sketches

I wasn’t liking how in the other paintings the hair seemed to have little to do with the rest of the face, so here’s a try in the direction of dealing with that. One also has to pay attention to colours. I like the impressionistic thing, and the brush marks. Those are made with very […]

Car, in place, with Guy

By in digital, machines, men, paintings

Reasonably happy with this. I’m getting control of my brushes, and all the little switches. I like the impressionistic roughness, and it didn’t even take me all that long.

Car, Car C-A-R

By in digital, paintings

Something I used to chant as a little one, for whatever reason. Painted this to go into the background of another picture, but spent so much time on it (learned a lot, however), that I decided to clip it out and blow it up. I seem to be having better luck with inorganic objects than […]

Sketch Blogging Again

By in digital, paintings, pen and ink

Things I’ve doing, and neglecting to put up. Pen and ink while watching a biography of the late Jean Giraud (Moebius). (Now taken down, sorry!) Admire his work greatly, but the whole “genius” tone of the doc was hard to deal with. Still, these people are giants in their field, and it’s not as easy […]

Cat All Alone

By in cats, Nora the cat, paintings

I’ve got a new, slightly intimidating photoshop. Took a while to paint this, and it’s not exactly according to the tutorials I was watching, but interesting enough. For more Nora the cat, go here.

Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]
