Like with Coraline, I wanted to add some illustrations to my portfolio so I also painted Norman 🙂 I actually have a drawing tablet but didn’t use it this time, I am too use to the mouse for digital art XD I made this in GIMP.
I painted Lucas Sinclair from Stranger Things!
Hi everyone! Busy and exciting month ahead for me; end of semester and Halloween! Last year I did a Hallo-art-week where I sketched something spooky related everyday up to November 1st (day of the dead).
But anyway, this is Mike! A character from Stranger Things, if you haven’t watched the show yet, what are you doing? Go! Watch it now! Haha, but before you do please check out more of my ST character portraits; Eleven and Will.
The painting above was done with watercolours and white gel pen used to outline paint lines. This is the sequel painting to my previous painting Smoke. They both are of the same character I mentioned; the boy with magical abilities hence the fire bird.
In this painting I actually painted his face a yellow glow from the fire but it came up as blue when I scanned it. Very minor error but it was out of my control.
This was actually my second attempt because I had applied too much paint onto my paper. One thing about watercolours is that you must not overload the paper, this can be difficult when you are coming from oils. I know this since I began painting using oils back in 2007.
