New skyscape! I am selling the originals of my skyscapes on Etsy, so be sure to go have a look by clicking here: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/Cadva
It has been a long time since I showed my step by step progress on here besides it being a speed painting video. So here we are, I start with sketching and I love to leave the graphite marks on my works because it helps me paint and I think it creates a great affect especially for Walking Dead since the game has the dirty/messy detailing.
The second painting as you can see is a few layers of flat colours. Watercolours works with layers so I do is I put down a layer at a time to darken the colours or add any shading. The third photo shows my near completed painting, so here I went over the painting with pencils to add depth and details. I also went over some lines with a fine point pen to add the classic comic book style – true to the game.
And lastly, the finished painting. I will scan the painting with my A3 Brother MFC-J6920DW printer/scanner. It is a great product, I managed to save up for it early last year which is why I have been able to upload so often. This scanner does take away a lot of colour, so I have to tweak the colour/contrast settings in GIMP 2 as much as I can to bring back its colour which works really well. Then I resise it in two sizes, one for Redbubble to get quality prints and a low-res copy for social media like what you are looking at above.
And that is it, if you have any questions or if your process is different then I am happy to hear them. 🙂
My camera has a very bad battery, it doesn’t last very long so that is why my videos are short and choppy. So what you didn’t see was me painting details on the hat and using pencils to add more depth to the painting. Also, after I scanned the painting I edited it in GIMP 2 which is great for small things but I seriously need to buy photoshop, it is just super expensive O.O in GIMP 2 I made Clementine’s eyes bigger because for some reason they came out very small and more of an Asian shape which Clementine does not have.
I have trouble liking with artwork and am so tempted to do another but I don’t know, what do you think? Maybe some time in the future 🙂
There are two more Clementines to paint too 😉
Hope you like the video!
I see a LOT of blue skies living in Brisbane, Australia and sometimes I get to see stunning clouds. So I took a photo of them and tried to see if I could paint them and I think it turned out okay XD what do you think?
I designed this for a poem I wrote about owls but when I uploaded it to Redbubble, I saw how great it looks on products. I feel spiritually connected to owls, probably because they are awesome 😀 So please check them out in the link below! What animal do you feel most connected to?
I finished off this painting today after I started it a week ago. I love how the moon came out, normally I hate my full moons especially when they are big but this one turned out well. I hope you are having a great weekend!
Thanks for looking, Happy Easter!
