Second one in a month. I am BLAZING I tell ya what.
Here’s a google-collage thing I made that shows the painting’s process:
I started with a sketch, as usual. This sketch was on watercolor paper. I tend to do a fairly in depth pencil sketch and then just incorporate the lead into everything else. I usually work with colored pencil as an “underpainting”-ish thing and then go with a bunch of layers of thin coats of paint to build up the face and all the areas where I have painted acrylic. The red, tho, is one of those water-soluble markers that I used to color the entire background, then went over it with varnish. It’s very vibrant. Lots of glitter and all that.
Here’s a .gif of the process, tho it’s not v detailed:
Here’s a nifty hi-res scan of the finished thing:
I’m trying to find a catchy name for this piece. I believe it carries on the theme of androidness.
Hey did y’all know you can follow me here and also I’m on youtube? I’m feeling squirrely lately, I reckon.
P.S. if you want to have this you can, for a price. Check it out.
OR if you’d prefer, you can have a snazzy glossy print reproduction of it. Over here.
Happy Tuesday and all that.
