Personal Work: (Sort of) Sunday Speedpainting #4 - Transfiguration VI

I know it's not Sunday today but I had the urge to do some painting so I thought I'd go ahead and do it. I decided to pick another image by Olivier de Sagazan and continue my series of fan art. I spent about 30 minutes on this piece and I will most likely continue to work on it on Sunday since I was enjoying painting it.

Personal Work: Sunday Speedpainting #3

For this week, I wanted to revisit a drawing I did a few years ago. In Sixth Form, I spent some time studying my now favourite artist - Alberto Giacometti... I drew many portraits inspired by his work. So, I looked through a bunch of photos and picked one I wanted to paint using Photoshop and try to imitate the look/feel of the original pen sketch.

Personal Work: Life Drawing & Sunday Speedpainting #2

This week has been very busy, but I managed to do some life drawing and my Sunday Speedpainting. I decided to do a speedpainting of a photo I took while visiting my family in New York. I spent about 20-30 minutes on this painting and I struggle with landscapes and colour sometimes, so I'm quite happy with how this turned out.

Dysmorphia: Updated

After experimenting with different ways of adding motion blur to reduce the jitteriness, I've updated the file on Vimeo with the best version I've been able to come up with so far. I think/hope it's an improvement, but I may continue to see if I can improve it and smooth it out more if needed.

Personal Work: Life Drawing & Sunday Speedpainting #1

Since I haven't drawn as much as I normally like to over the last few months, I decided I'm going to try to do about 30 minutes of life drawing a day. I've been using a few different websites such as Line of Action to get back into practice without consuming my entire day since I'm also helping out with YPGTTO.

I also wanted to try doing 'Sunday Speedpaintings' every week. I'm sure I'll end up being too busy at times to do life drawing every single day and I'll probably miss a few Sunday Speedpaintings, but I'm going to try my best to keep up with it over the summer. This first speedpainting is of my dog. I spent about 30-40 minutes on it and I may work on it some more later on.
