DOBERMAN – Digital Painting

Hey guys, so I decided to try something a little different in this quick painting, and that is to keep everything as rough as I can. I wanted to try my hand at creating a fairly “minimalist” styled art piece.

For a first time try at this, I don’t think it turned out that bad, and I had quite a bit of fun painting this. Keeping things simplistic has never been one of my strong suites, so, it was pretty difficult not to try and make this into a completely rendered painting with lots of detail.

I actually started this painting just as a warm up/study piece, but then had the idea of seeing how rough I could make it while at the same time making the image read clearly to the viewer.

Hopefully I accomplished that task, and I hope that you guys like how this piece turned out! Please feel free to leave a comment down below letting me know what you think of my attempt at creating a Doberman minimalist styled painting. And, as always, thank you so much for checking out my art, I really appreciate it! πŸ™‚

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!! πŸ˜€

First Art Commission!

So, about a week or so ago, I received my very first art commission! I was very nervous to accept it, much less, start the initial drawing.

Once I had accepted the payment for the painting, I immediately got to work on it. I was careful not to rush it, or try to speed through it in any way. I wanted to ensure that I put in all the effort I could into making it into a great painting.

The commission I was given was to create a painting from a portrait of this neat lady, Angie, and her best friend, whom she received not too long ago, Abe. I really liked this idea, and thought that it would be a fun piece to work on. Though this painting was a lot of fun to create, it was also very challenging, as I have never made a piece with an animal and a person in the same canvas. After some time trying different ideas and techniques, I believe I managed to pull it off pretty well.

I made sure to continuously show my client updates when I finished each stage, that way she knew exactly what she was getting, and if there were any aspects of the painting she wanted me to correct. I continued this process till I got to the finished product, and once I showed it to her, she said that she really liked it, which was absolute music to my ears!

Now, the next step in this commission is to finally go and get it printed!! I am very excited to see how this painting will look in a physical copy. I will definitely show you guys how the print looks in the next post, so be sure to stay tuned in for that!

So, that’s all that I have for now. I really hope that you guys like how this painting turned out, and how the print will turn out. Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this post, and if you like what you’ve read, and if you enjoy my art, which you can check out in my gallery, definitely be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already.

A Horse of Beauty

I’ve been working on a painting of a horse for about eight hours as a request for this kid who goes to the Elementary school I work at. When she found out I was an artist, she asked me if I would paint her a picture of a horse, which of course, I said yes… I mean, how could I say no! lol.

With only a week left of school left, I finally finished working on the painting. All that is left for me to do is to get it printed, and see her expression when I hand it to her. ^^

I hope that you guys really enjoy this painting, it was a fun one to make, and is definitely one of the best pieces I’ve created so far.

If you do like how this turned out, please be sure to give it a like and share it with your friends/family. Also, if you want to see more art from me, definitely be sure to follow this blog, I’ll continuously update it with new art. πŸ™‚

Lioness Painting!

Lioness Painting_FinishedHere’s a painting of a Lioness I had done a few weeks ago. I have just got my first Wacom Cintiq, and really wanted to experiment using it on a painting that would be a lot of fun, and so, I decided to paint one of my favorite subject matters; Big Cats!!

This piece took me a couple hours to create, and I think that the end result turned out pretty good. I definitely learned a lot working on this, both from a technical standpoint of using my Cintiq, and from an artistic one, such as lighting and colors.

I hope that you guys enjoy this painting, and I look forward to showing you guys more art pieces in the future! πŸ™‚

Black Panther Painting: Finished!!

black_panther_by_calebp1716-daqulna.pngHey there guys, so I just finished my Black Panther painting yesterday, and I am very pleased with how it turned out, this could probably be the most realistic painting I’ve ever done before, so that’s pretty exciting! πŸ˜€

If you guys didn’t know already, I lost my paint job from the work in progress I uploaded before, so I had to start the painting process over completely from scratch, fortunately though, I was able to keep my linework, but for some reason Photoshop didn’t save my paint job, why… I have no idea. :/

Anyway, I’m very happy with this painting, and I hope that my friend likes it, and I hope that all of you like it as well! πŸ™‚Β Thank you guys for checking out my work, and if you’d like to let me know how I did, or how I could improve, please leave a comment below, I’d love to hear from you and receive your input. ^^

Thank you guys again for checking out my work, I really appreciate it, and I look forward to creating more and hopefully better art for you guys in the future! πŸ™‚
