Monday Spitpaint Collection

30 minute spitpaints:

"Carnivorous Plants"Two goals: One, I wanted to dig out my custom foliage brushes. Two, I wanted to add vibrant markings to convey a predatory/aggressor type. Probably my favorite spitpaint of the day. 

"Medieval Snowmobile"- Well, I liked the idea but just didn't execute the depth I wanted. Really like the lines but need to address the midpoint area and snow strokes. 

"Hamster Robot"- "Why stuff your face little hamster when the robot can handle 3 times the load for you?". I liked how the hamster turned out but I could have had the arm fading back into the background, to give it more depth. It's a flat image.

"Bring the Rain"- The AC-130 Gunship deploys a series of anti-missile heat flares before unloading the Howitzer. It forms a cloud formation also know as "The Angel of Death"  I thought this idea was fitting but not too fond of the outcome. At least I learned something. 

Spitpaint Friday!

30 minute spitpaints:
"Oasis"- Sometimes the first idea isn't very good but I went with it. Really attempted to show a strong color palette and attempt a mirage/heat type of effect on the horizon.
"Harlot"- Topic was intriguing . Never really painted a subject like this before. Making something look interesting is a whole other story. I decided to put her in a alleyway. Why is she blue?  My idea was to have her a colder color. Numb to work and life she's been doing for the past decade. I look to render this out more and fix her pose. 
"Hercules Beetle"- Thought of Heavy Metal but didn't execute the idea. 
"Masquerade"- Street aftermath was my initial idea. People leaving and conversing before heading home. 

Self Portrait-Step 1

The start of a self portrait in ArtRage. I spend a lot of hours behind the screen with my music cranked. A good representation of my life for the past 8 years.

This iPad painting started with a quick loose gestural drawing to get a general flow and layout. That followed with a reddish orange base and see if I can let some of that come up through the finished piece. We'll see how it ends up. I was definitely inspired by Post-Impressionist today ;)
