One Moon to rule them all. This Ringwraith is based on Tolkiens Lord of the rings. I think if you are not a LOTR fan, this could have a little explanation. In the books, there are nine of these wraith creatures, that are all bind to the Master ring, that rules them all. So I tried to bind the background in to the Tolkiens world :)
This is it, my all time favorite book cover illustrated. So many memories with the book and I always get my hands on this if I'm stuck with my art. Currently reading it to my youngest and getting inspired! :D
Hi! I have often a problem adjusting the values of my illustrations. I tend to go with too dark or saturated tones. I feel that my eyes work differently on different days and almost like different time of the day :D Does this make any sense? Does anyone struggle with similar problem and is there a tips/solution to adjusting your values/tones?
I did the color sketch with airbrush and then scanned the image for re-touch/experiment in PS. I think I do a larger painting in some point. What do you think about the background white or red? Red version is the original airbrushed and white is digital version.
Hi. I have decided to do more plein air studies this year and figured out this simple easel. I was lucky to have a tripod (old Velbon CX 686) and Manrfotto super clamp. I had to buy few clipboards, spring clamps, and I think I'm ready to go! The tripod makes it fully adjustable, can be used on standing/sitting positions. With spring clamps you can attach almost anything on the easel :) Because I already had tripod this was ridiculously cheap to do. What do you think of this? :) Here's a short video clip about the easel, https://youtu.be/JJzY2IHkS3U
Greetings from the north! I love this season light and every hour counts. Got really inspired of this challenge and made a bunch of studies. Here are my five picks. I hope you enjoy. Gouache on paper, with flat 3/4 and round 12 brush.
