Into The Dark

I wanted a painting that was told in two stories but was linked in some way.

The sun and moon always have their dance at dusk and you can see the two entangling their separate worlds together:

As the sun dies it’s light illuminates the sky with mystical shades of yellow, orange and pink with the blue sky showing some reminiscence as if saying goodbye. When the sun dies, it’s light is soft but dying too so there is darkness high above and this is when you can see the moon, illuminated by the dying sun, and surrounded by stars now visible by the lack of sunlight.

The two are connected in such a brief moment, but together they are entwined.

I think of this dance as a parent and their child  but to you, who is the moon and sun?

Maybe lovers?

Clementine

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. 🙂

Clementine

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!
