Tangles

Hey guys some awesome news I've been working on something new, these paintings I'm planning to sell at Anime North; an anime convention that I go to every year at the end of May. I'm going to be doing quite a few of them and I've started with little mini paintings! These are just 2 inches by 3 3/4 inches and I'm planning a couple of bigger sizes 6x12 (inches) and 8x16 (inches). I'm also planing to set up a website where people can buy them online. The little ones I'm planing to sell them for $3 :) 

I've started with Ron from Harry Potter! 


 And this is the side of the painting.

This is one of Harry Potter, I have actually fixed his skin tone just haven't taken a recent picture :P But look how cute he is :) 

And finally DOMO! I've planned a little more but if you want to see something let me know! 

Well till next time!

Rockin' out with my Bach out!

 I'm still in Exam mode, I've got one tomorrow, and I thought it would be nice not to think about it for a few minutes. And I've decided to post some stuff from my drawing class.  


And yes those are my feet. I took my head pones and drew them six times, three of them the same way and three of them from different angles. All done with marker but I did make some small outlines with pencil to pick out all the bits hit by light. The whole thing is 2x3 feet but it's all cut into square and there are a lot of possibilities in terms of combinations. 




These top three are the favorites of the project and are now on my wall!





 I can't seem to catch a break with the rotation of the pictures. It's giving me a headache, but hopefully I can make the point with the project. It was mainly to observe the different lines and patterns that I could bring out of the headphones and my wacky imagination. 
 I personally don't like coffee too much, but when I do drink coffee is mainly to stay up late to finish assignments or to stay up a bit longer to study for exams. And so I'm hoping that it doesn't have to come to this: 


see that smile? it scares me. 

Wish me luck! Till next time!

Color Theory

I was doing some digging today and found some neat stuff that I did a few years ago. I think it was about three year ago. I was at Seneca for Art Fundamentals and this was a second semester class. Everyone had to keep a sketchbook for a final mark and these pieces were a part of mine. The whole sketchbook is about 14x11 inches. I'm also planing to frame some of this stuff, and possibly put it in my room. 

I think I called this one "Nature and Urban" as a sort of mixing of patterns and forms. One as curvy and the other as stiff. This covers one whole page of the sketchbook, I can't entirely remember what I was thinking when I made this. It was a long time ago.


This one as you can see focused on pointillism and opposing colors. There's actually green spots on that red apple. It's more to bring out the darker parts of the apple with out adding black to the painting. This picture is tiny, its about 5.5x7.5 inches.

I remember this being something about a repeating pattern and promote color harmonies. Colors that just mesh well together to create something awesome is the way I see it. This piece covers the whole page of the sketchbook.


This one was supposed to be about emphasizing a color. A part of me wants this picture to be a bit darker, I probably will go ahead and make it darker at a later time. When I have a bit more time, granted I don't misplace the sketchbook and find it four months later. Again this covers the whole sketchbook.

Till next time!
