Today was a good day – I met with an old friend and had fun hanging out. And so many other good things happened. I was happy even with the little time I had to paint.
But when I got home I couldn’t get my scanner to work. With precious little time – I couldn’t attempt to fiddle with it. I had only so much time to create a painting and edit and write this up so I took a shot with my camera instead. This is something I don’t like to do. But this picture isn’t so bad so I’ll go with it.
I decided to try go going for background practise again – I know I suck at them so I need to work on more. And I kind of miss painting odd coloured skin – I used to do it all the time, what happened to that…
Another thing I noticed is that my sketches tend to be very cartoon-ey but when I start painting I tend to go favour more realism. So for this painting I tried to keep it as toon-ey as possible – just to see how it would go. It went well until I started fiddling and adding more detail. This is a problem I have. lol
