I like to paint. I’m not great at it, but I enjoy it.
This is one of the few “originals” that I have.
Usually I just try to mimic what I see on the Internet.
I loved Kelly’s ombre verse art.
Rise Against song.
Inspired by Eddie Van Halen’s guitar.
Followed this design. Everything was going great until I started painting branches. Looks like a bunch of Ks and Ys.
Somewhat followed the design mentioned here.
I was trying as many colors as I could get from the paint I had.
Last night I wanted to paint a girl. I have drawn her face a bit, but couldn’t entirely get things right.
I got the face colored, her hair colored, shirt and arms drawn out and painted. Then, I realized I needed to give her facial features.
I asked Danny to draw a face for me so I could use it as a go-by for my gal, Francesca. He asked me what kind of smile I wanted. So, I gave him the goofiest, wide-mouthed, weirdest smile I could give him.
…And, he drew me someone who looks like she’s going through withdrawals and/or about to murder someone.
Francesca on the left, Danny’s version on the right.
I did the best I could at painting her nose and mouth. I inadvertently gave her braces.
I tried to make her cool and give her a v-neck with a pocket in the front, but she looks more like a nurse or dental assistant.
She’s not perfect, but I like her.
