Ted Castle

Spent the day focusing on oil pastel and pencil. Some excellent results and collaboration with the kids.

I wanted to produces some landscape/building designs for Teds environment. So far I've created several character models - and weird shapes. Needs some environments!

Busy day today - some great drawing and painting (but always prefer the drawing due to control!). Snapped photos of the drawings., uploading these later. It's always very exciting to draw with children - I can always ask them 'What do you want me to draw?', and they always have an answer.

Working on my Monster Mash 2014 game. It is due July 7th (8th here). I have a few days left on it so it's really important that I get stuck into it.

I have crossed a Bear into the game due to SketchDaily theme. These two works have been created in MyPaint.

Monster Mash - Dr Frank Head

Hello.

I have been busy today digital painting. I need to make a video game and am partaking in Monster Mash 2014. Themes I have been exploring for it - Treasure Island (Krakan etc..). This continues the game I started for Public Domain Jam.

I am also interested in Norse monsters, and I really should go check out some Irish or Scottish...The possibilities are endless with monsters though!

Here are the paintings from today -

Here's a portrait I painted a couple of days ago of someone on RedditGetsDrawn:

Today has been much better than yesterday. I woke up feeling good. Even after a long walk yesterday I felt crap. Anyway, I slept in today which helped, waking up at 10am. Bruce was heading into the center at Noon so I got ready and headed in with him. I had my tablet and laptop with me. Finding material was hard, so I decided to paint a musician I hadn't painted before - Lana Del Ray. Much the same process as my previous color digital painting - line, black and white tonal, and finally color. It's great that I'm setup at the center with the digital painting!

This is a piece I created at the center last week. Line layer was done and I started with the gray-scale tonal layer.

I've had a crappy day. Not looking forward to the future.

I use a script to pull data from one subreddit to another. This helps me choose and organize my works easier. I was explaning the script to my Brother and telling him what i want to do next with it.

One change i can do is change what subreddit it pulls data from. For awhile this was set to chosse a random subreddit that the user subscribed to. I've gone back and changed it to a specif subreddit - ive been focusing on RedditGetsDrawn and GoneMild. It's bee fun painting people on GoneMild - the photos tend to be full bodies so plently of info to capture.

There is also a bonus line drawing of Olaf from Frozen.

  This is a personal request for a portrait. The first time I drew her, it was only a quick digital line drawing.

I had fun with adding grayscale and color tonal layers.

There is a bonus line drawing - I was not inspired to take this piece further in layers.

I watched the Anime tv show K recently on Hulu. I didn't really follow it, mostly due to it being in Japanese. Well watching it I painted a main female character - Neko

Here is the result:
