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.

Rogue Assassin Process gif

Here is the GIF that I made of my last painting. I unfortunately only took four pictures, after the third pass I forgot and realized a day or two later, oh well. The underpainting got a little dark, because I didn’t spray the pencil drawing good enough with fixative. The graphite smudged a bit, which I thought at the time would ruin the painting, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks for stopping by,

Rogue Assassin

Hi people, here is my latest painting and also my fastest larger painting that I have finished so far. I will be taking a break from painting portfolio pieces and make something for a friend of mine. Next week I’ll share a GIF that I made documenting the steps in my painting. I also want to get ready for Inktober and will be doing a lot of sketching with inks, this should be fun.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bill

Albrecht Dürer

The Knight, death and the devil by Albrecht Dürer.

 

A few weeks ago I wrote about showing something by Albrecht Dürer. Living in Germany you don’t get around learning about Albrecht Dürer, and I’m happy about that. Painter, printmaker who lived during the German Renaissance. You can read about him here at Wikipedia:  Albrecht Dürer.

Thanks for stopping by,

Underpainting, its gonna be UGLY!

I hate to show my underpaintings. This is the stage where I start to think, “What was I thinking.” My underpaintings are usually ugly and this one is no different. I do like how the wall in the background looks, I usually get ideas how the painting will continue when I do the underpaint. It sort of looks like this guy is coming out of a jungle crypt, ready to kick some butt. These are the happy accidents that happen I guess.

Start cool,

Bill

Sketchbook Post

I love my sketchbook. I love to just open it and draw things or ideas that fly through my mind. Mostly though its a time to relax and just enjoy drawing, I don’t worry about being technicly perfect, there are usually a lot of mistakes when I go back and look at them later, but who cares. I started the drawing for my next bigger painting and will be posting weekly updates and a progress Gif at the end.

Thanks for taking a look,

Bill

The Pit Fighter.

I had the idea for this painting quite a while ago and never really had the nerve to try my hand at it, but I wanted to challenge myself and try to see how fast I could get this done and still be happy with it. Well, it took me four and a half weeks and I’m pleased with it. I’ll be using this in my Portfolio and will enter it in a competition comes this Fall.

Also I won’t be showing any more of my ink drawings until they get better. I think I annoyed some people with them, so inking will remain a private indulgence for the time being.

Stay cool,

Bill
