I would like to share this real watercolor painting I made.


It is yes real paper, real watercolor paint, real watercolor pencil, you can feel it between your toes, know
it is real.
It was an experiment (I wasn't entirely knowing what I was doing, it was just something to pass the time).
I particularly like how that tree came out, I feel like I accomplished something there.

Thanks! :) That was one of my first proper watercolor paintings. I’ve also painted with acrylic before for a figure painting class I took about 2 years ago.

Here are some drawings I have recently completed. I try and make every drawing special, add some nice touches here and there.

Those are supposed to be purple-y meadow flowers in the immediate foreground. This was to practice mixing colors that look good together. Initially I had a lot of glowing effects in here, but I didn’t think they looked right so I erased those and chose some basic lighting.

I give myself a holographic star sticker for a job well done. :D

This is good, one of my greatest paintings. I was trying all these brushes under the sun and kept airbrushing and airbrushing then try some more brushes I don’t usually use- then this came out:

Here is my most recent landscape. I'm trying to learn color theory now, but I think a lot
of decision making in coloring comes down to trial-and-error and/or intuition. It took awhile to make this because
picking the right colors to make it look good was the hard part.

I would like to share my process here:

Step 1: Sketching: Building a model for success
At this stage, I sketch, erase a lot and generally lay the foundations down.


Step 2:Fill it with a color: Like toning your paper in a painting class taken years ago...
At this stage I fill the figure with color because I’m going to create a new layer above this one which will be clipped to it, to help speed up coloring.


Step 3: Putting the true colors in: Now I place my true colors where they belong in their respective spots on the figure.



Step 4: Trying to figure out light and shadow



Step 5: Slowly building upon colors and the colors that came before them and so on...



Step 6 : I just kept trying things with brushes, different, shades, and highlights to get here...



Step 7: It was getting late so I just tacked something in the background for good measure.


Now I call it complete!

Boo! These look great! Love that  rendering you did on her. The shading  really made her pop and look 3D. Keep up the good work. I am happy to see so much improvement from you.

I eggsperimented and eggsperimented and eggsperimented with these layer modes and brushes. I took 5 minute break then I looked at my painting here and I add more to it. Then I take another 5 minute break and I added just a little more contrast to add more impact. This is the completed Portraiture:

This is my attempt at staging a multi-person vs. 1 egg fight scene, this is only the plotting phase, I should add a background sometime. I may try and animate this someday... maybe :D, this is only frame 1.


This next piece is just a sketch, maybe NSFW too.
Egg Dealer discovers a hidden egg in his armpit. This was done traditionally, on real paper, with a mechanical pencil and a pen.

It is in the truest a fact a two-headed penny, very rare.




Now we’re talking illustrated picture dictionary stuff here.

I am currently working on a technical description of German phonetics project (the final project) for my class.
Mit viel Fleiß an das Ziel!
I can smell the Scholarships now.

Then I learned how to add audio into FlipaClip! My mind was blown! Now I can use that cinematic track I made!
Joyous day!

There have been many wardrobe iterations over time, this one being the latest of the range.
(Filters have been messed with here to experiment). :):):):)

These are now both quite actually old by now!!
By the time I redid it a second time, I got new, more developed ideas, so these are from, let’s say, deleted scene.
