4 little paintings I have begun yesterday/today. The top two are gouache and the bottom two are oils but I have to wait for them to dry because I plan on adding in gesso and ink as well over top of them and whatnot for detailing. They’re all pretty small at around 8 x 12 ish (the last one is only like 6 x 7 though guh!) but I just got some bigger canvas boards today so I’m beginning a bigger painting right now and I’m really pumped about it. I just love being able to actually use paint ahhh! I’ll post some actual photos when they’re completely finished later this week, also will probably post a wip when I get to a good point on this bigger canvas!
EDIT - also tossed in two other little doodles.
Little morning nostalgia sketch. Sometimes I want to just wake up and go chill on the beach and just spend the day walking through the forest and playing gamecube haha! I don’t think I’d want to go back to high school and all of that, just have a fun few days haha.
Also woah forgot to answer this one earlier - sorry about that!
I am ideally aiming to be an editorial illustrator, I’d love to do illustrations to go along with articles or even posters for plays, that sort of thing. I think also I really, really want to start using more traditional media as another goal of mine is to participate in art gallery shows and I always would feel a bit weird submitting digital work to them.
I feel like all of these goals are a long way off though and I’ll keep working hard for years and years to come.
Yes I do! Besides graphite which I am used to working with my favorite would definitely be oil painting. If I could afford medium/large canvases I would love to do some serious paintings sometime soon. I feel like all my oils are going to waste just sitting there haha!
Lifeseekerxl - I’m not sure really, I think it’s because I love forest themes a whole lot so it just felt natural though I’ve stopped drawing them as much recently haha!
Bbshipper - Oh gosh thank you! I hope that one day I can start doing more traditional work, I feel like it’ll be really nice to be able to give people physical paintings instead of just digital files and pencil sketches haha!
Justgobananas - I use a Wacom Bamboo Fun small (I really probably should upgrade at some point). I usually sketch it in pencil and then just paint under the sketch but I recently got scolded pretty hard about it so I think I might be looking for new ways to work using ink or using pencil in different ways!
Hey there, if any of you have any questions at all about art or life or whatever feel free to shoot some my way. I’m going to be bored in class today I bet and could use something to do! Anyone have anything?
Thanks, dude! I don’t think I have any versions that would be suitable for a background, heck, most of my stuff ends up portrait so it’s hard to use like that but maybe I should do some landscape stuff with intentions of it being a wallpaper sometime soon(?). I’ll have to keep that in mind for sure though.
Two painted version of the sketches from yesterday.
odiousness asked: I really admire your talent. I can draw, but not nearly as well as you. You're an inspiration, so keep it up.
Thanks you! Just keep up drawing and you’ll improve in no time at all, it’s all about the dedication! I’ll definitely keep drawing and do my best to improve as well, thanks a bunch!
Some sketches from in class today, today’s themes were dreams and cycles.
