It's been a little while but I am now back from my vacation, so it's time for an art update.
Lately I have been working on a lot of miscellaneous paintings that aren't for larger projects, just to keep myself busy and to try out some new techniques. The latest series that I finished is a set of 6 Mini watercolor paintings. They're about 5 x 7" and are mostly fanart-related.
In the next few posts, I'll share all six paintings, starting with two today. I used a pretty unusual style in these pieces which is quite experimental, but I'm fairly happy with the results. Let's take a look at the first two paintings:
In case you're interested, here are the basic supplies that I used to create these paintings:
Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time
The first painting that I worked on is a little fanart piece for the Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time. I tried to avoid perspective as much as possible and make the characters very flat, colorful and surreal. Another oddity of this style is that everything is inked with a 08 Pigma pen; usually I use a 01 and 05 pen so the lines are much chunkier than normal.
The paper is 5 x 7" with a taped border on each side, making the finished painting more like 4 x 6". I hope you enjoyed my weird little Link! I will probably make prints eventually, for next convention season.
I lied, I actually painted this before the Zelda painting, hehe. This is the only painting in this series that isn't fanart, it is just a painting of a surreal princess in a strawberry-themed dress, surrounded by mushrooms. I tried to keep the colors as bold and shifting as possible, and finished it off with a dark black background.
Thanks for Looking
