I've been keeping myself busy with painting people on RedditGetsDrawn. Getting multi paintings done a day is great. For a long time nothing much happened, but it's always great to get back into something that's enjoyable.

In terms of sorting these paintings. I've tried to be better at sorting them into when posting - instead of dumping ten or fifteen into a post, I'll just work with one. This one, has reference, line, grayscale, color tone, and the video. When you think about that it's quite a bit of visual content for one post.

It's the written I struggle with.

may-dogkiss-line Line. Sketched in portrait of human and dog.Background added landscape

may-dogkiss-bw

may-dogkiss-color Color. Useful for merging off elements - person, dog, background, floor.

Bellez Rat

Here's a digital painting  I did today of Bellez. I promised her a painting months ago of her rats. It's not the most dominating image of her Rat, it's something. It's been a long time since I've create a video for my digital painting - 3months! I used my old tablet, so looking forward to getting my new one back. I've returned it to MightyApe so it shouldn't be too far away.

Until then, I'll keep painting, because it makes me happy.

RedditGetsDrawn May

So I'm back in Levin. The art being updated here has been slow. I haven't been getting out and drawing. Althought yesterday I decided to use my old tablet and record some digital painting. Reference used was portraits from RedditGetsDrawn. It's been months since I've recored videos of my digital painting. Hopefully I get my new tablet returned to me soon - I've dropped it off at MightyApe. Just got to wait for them to fix it and return.

Anyway, here's some digital painting - may-twocouple-linemay-girlport-bwmay-girlport-linemay-glassescool-COLORmay-glassescool-linemay-taylormay-taylor-bwmay-taylor-colormay-twocouple-bwpainr
