Quick-ish 2+ hour painting. After I got base values and stuff in I gave up and added sloppy colors. Then played around with color correcting and textures and such. Cheers
So made my first ever photobash. Which is 1) really frustrating and 2) really fun and overall rewarding. So here you go, future soldier dude. Got a good way to go but im pleased with it. Cheers!
Hopefully he’ll never get on my tumblr. I’m painting a portrait of Lana Del Rey for my roomie who’s madly in love with her. So a poster sized print and alcohol should be a good 21st birthday present! Im really glad I got her likeness relatively quick compared to how it usually is. Cheers!
UPDATE. played around some more and added 7 branch things cause 7 is my lucky number, always has been and the branches add some asymmetry to the design. other than that im still playing with the design motifs that’ll be on business cards, websites, resumes, etc. So far the first one is my favorite. thoughts?
Finally done. First full acrylic painting ever and I’m pretty proud of it. Scanning it sucked though cause all the textures and glassiness of the painting killed the values and saturation and it was hell color-correcting it. Adding minimal touch-ups cause i wanted it to be as close to the original as possible. So here I present to you Guy Johnson, Duke of Bug-men.
Been down most the weekend. More flashbacks and stuff than usual and am wishing I wouldn’t get them. BUT ANYWAYS. On to important things.
I’m having the absolute most difficult time designing my logo. Its kinda made me realize I don’t know really know who I am or what my identity is(in a non-philosophical, I just don’t have anything to symbolize me, kind of way.) Overall the direction I want is modern, minimal, geometric, and maybe futuristic. Despite how much I’d like it, I don’t want a classical influenced design. What I’ve realized though is how broad my interests are and how much about I think of many aspects of my work. So overall I’m leaning towards the idea of the mind, and what better thing than neurons? The angled, grid design is what I’m going for. My initials are making it really hard to make something both geometric and still somewhat organic. The “K” isn’t too bad, but “C” is the letter I’m having trouble making look good.
So here you see my initial sketches, and then more developed designs. In the second image, im playing around with four of my favorite color schemes. I like them all but wont really worry about those till i’ve finalized the logo. On the last images I made more finalized compositions by adding my name as well. Bonveno CF was a great typeface. So i just picked random designs and made one for each color scheme. And in the last on you see the neuron grid thing that I was talking about that I really love. Its a design element that I plan to use in pretty much everything.
Okay, I need help with critiques and suggestions and stuff. I’m no graphic design and have no clue what Im doing. I’ve spent so much time on behance and stuff looking at others work and feel pretty incompetent compared to those who are actually good at personal branding. So yeah. Cheers!
sketch dump! Happy Inktober. Should be good enough incentive to actually draw everyday. alien creature, futuristic surgeon and a master study drawing of an Ethel Turnbull sketch.
for the sake of updating mah tumblr. Heres the value sketch of the full acrylic painting im currently working on. Not having fun doing it since i’m learning i hate acrylic, but hey it’ll get the job done. cheers!
1 hr 15min speedpainting. My roommate is finally back so i get to occasionally use his nice mac computer to work on paintings! if it wasnt for it being dumb today, i would’ve made a timelapse video of it as well. but anyways, here you go. cheers
Shootout - 2014
My last painting as a teenager! turning 20 today and am pretty excited. Being an adult sucks, but it can’t be worst than being a teenager. Anyways, heres a full painting that i finally finished and had fun making it look like a movie still. Directed by J.J. Abrams. enjoy, cheers!
finally got around to finishing this sketch that i started a while back. These aren’t super polished up, but they still took me several hours, which means I need to work my ass off to do these as quickly as someone like Lindsey Wakefield.
but yea, after i finished the head i wanted to have fun and made it all look like its a still from a movie. Such a fun format that im definitely gonna continue to do it. Cheers!
Got all mopey again and whipped this in about half an hour. Needed to make a cliche painting with an inspirational quote. One of my favorite quotes actually by Macklemore. cheers!
Friend gave me this idea that I was going to originally blow off, but actually starting sketching and now we’re here. It’s Samus in Hylian armor. Kinda happy with how its starting out. I’ve never drawn a woman in armor(actually this is like the 5th person in armor i’ve ever drawn) and went for for cool heavy armor.Lots of Game of Thrones and Assassin’s creed influence. All the metal work and design elements will finally make it look hylian.
I don’t think anything makes more sense than having a specialized crossbow on her arm. And Its fun thinking that like how in metroid prime there are various beam weapons, you can switch out arrows like in ocarina of time. So that works! ummm, i’ll be working on and off for the next few days so idk when it’ll be done. but stay tuned! Cheers!
Heres a 1 1/2hr megalosaurus sketch based of the torvosaurus sketch by Kosemen. I love how he did it so I decided to emulate his technique and see what I thought about it. I enjoyed it for the most past, my drawing took longer and wasn’t as loose and smooth as Kosemen’s, which is something i need to work on. But here is a drawing that uses Hartman’s skeletals as reference and I took some liberties and added extra meat and fats as well as face integuments to attract the ladies. Cheers!
