Liberandum

Hey people,
I decided to try something different on this one. The last couple of weeks I read a few Tutorials in how to digital paint over different mediums. I wanted to try this, so I made a really tight drawing and then proceeded. I also wanted this to be different in terms of subject matter, so I also wanted the painting to have a 1970s science fiction feel to it. I will be doing more of these and will limit it for the time being to sci-fi themes.

By for now,

Bill

Noctis Malus.

Noctis Malus-webFirst, Merry Christmas to all. Second, I finished this last week and decided to show it this year. Maybe winter depression isn’t such a bad thing for painting.

Come good into the new year,

Bill

Winter Depression.

800px-the_scream

(The Scream by Edvard Munch)

Winter depression is something I struggle with every year. I always seem to have a plan each year of how I’ll get by it, but in the end it usually gets me. I take vitamin D, try to get outside once a day and drawing or painting really helps. But there are still those days where you feel worn to the bone and don’t really see the sense in painting or being creative even though this is a big part of me. Setting a goal for myself also helps me just get through the week knowing other people depend in me, and making their Day brighter helps.

If you or someone you know has winter depression, be understanding, get Help, go See your Doctor. Stay busy if that helps, it helps me.

Hug someone today.

Next week I will get back to my Art. I have a painting that I really liked to paint and am almost finished.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bill

Be carefull what you agree to.

Ok, there is story behind this painting. I asked my brother for idea for a painting. I asked him for three ideas and I would play this through as an Art director giving me an assignment. Now I don’t know how many hours my brother and I played D&D, collected comicbooks together and generally shared a Love for most things fanasty and science fiction. Well He suprised me with the request to paint nothing to do with those two categories. He asked me to Paint our dog in the park playing ball.

I hate painting grass, I try to avoid it at all cost, but I decided to make this into a grass painting study. I really hestitated sharing this, I feel like I was hardly above water while painting this. And Bro if you’re reading this, sorry but I did the best I could.

Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome.

My last inks for a while, I wanted Inktober to go out in a bang so I did a little tribute to Mad Max Fury Road. I also made this into a T-Shirt over at Redbubble. I’ve been squaring away my finanaces and other stuff that life throws at you so there has been little time to paint or draw. I still have a painting for a friend on my easel that quietly rebukes me every time I walk past it. I should be getting back into the saddle by next weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and remember: Ride Eternal Shiny and Chrome,

Bill

Inktober 25-27.

These are fun to do, but I’m ready to get back to painting. I’ve learned a bit out of this challenge and I full-filled my new years resolution to fill a sketchbook.

Thanks for stopping by,

One of the positive affects of inktober is that my sketching skills have improved. I am falling behind though, but I’ll do all 31 days.

Inktober 7-12 with 8 missing.

I spent the last week in Berlin, walking around and taking in the wonderful buildings and Museums, so I’m trying to play catch-up with the inktober themes. These are getting easier and I see an improvment, I’m not crosshatching wildly now over the whole drawing.

Thanks for stopping by,

Inktober day 5 and 6

I finally caught up. Each day has a theme, day 5 was long- she has long hair, a long sword and will have a long fall if she doesn’t make it. Six was sword, hey why not a ninja, everyone likes ninjas.
