Giving you ten more from the 30 portrait series... some I'm not terribly proud of. But they're all real silly. Closer to finishing the full 30. Only one left. Wee!
Ok, in order... Nila [collage], Sam E [spraypaint], Andrea [make-up], Mirald [chalk], Daniel [graphite], Heather [gouche], Rad [scratchboard - pretty sure I did this in 10 minutes, wasted...oops.], Ellen [woodstain marker - hahaha, this one geeks me out. sowwy, ellen], John Suarez [greyscale marker], Jamil [colored pencil]
Here's a watercolor I finished tonight. Kinda hate it/ kinda love it. I rushed it.. but it turned out all right. Working on another presently... i'll post it in a couple days. I'm using these little pre-projects as color studies to my future mega couch project. Whole lotta fun.
Anyways, Josh makes a great model. thanks jash. Check his blog...
All were done 2nd year of ringling, when I was attempting watercolor for the first time. The boy was my first try, and apparently my best. The last girl, Ashley Legaidre, was my 2nd try... and all right, but I went back and added a dark tonight. Made it look stupid and poppy and awesome. loveit. The bloody one was a fun one.. but I got an average grade because my teacher decided he'd prefer it in oil... after he egged me on to do it. lolz. I did do it in oil later...
Anywho, there's a more recent attempt at watercolor to come..
This was a digital painting I started in Visual Development last semester. I never finished... hence the craziness at the bottom and the faded out details. I pretty much ran out of time... and also discovered Ringling was killing the Vis.Dev. minor and screwing over a good amount of kids... so I sort of gave up.
Anywho, it was based off of a folklore/mythological tale from our ethnic background. I chose to delve into the Russian side of me and read up on this crazy monstah- Zmey Gorynych - the three-headed dragon. I twisted up his looks a little and gave him a crazy vulture kind of look. Came from the tale "Dobrynya and the Dragon".
Ok, so... I'm lazy, I know. These were from the 30 portraits/30 days/30 diff.mediums project in Pratt's class last semester. I still.. have only 27 finished. So I haven't uploaded the whole template yet. Oops.
But I promise they'll be done soon.. it's actually a real entertaining finale. Brady Bunch style.
Here's some of the better one's so far... I went for realism in all of em. Sort of wished I didn't.
