Wanted an excuse to play around with Zbrush again. The Weekly Sketch of Facebook; subject "Mythical beasts".
Just installed this today. Originally wanted it because it hasd pre-designed templates for comics/graphic novels and word balloons that i just dont want to have to take the time to make in photoshop. " Able to import 3D objects as well?" stay tuned for my take on this program.
I've been doing some writing. A novel of sorts. I first had the idea to do a graphic novel, but now I am aiming for more of an illustrated novel. This painting was done in ArtRage on my phone and then edited in Photoshop. It's been a lot of fun to write, very vivid. At times it even sends shivers up my spine. I think, How does Stephen King do this stuff?
I was requested to do another Audrey 2, this time for my Nephew's birthday. I used a Terra Cotta sculpey clay, 2 sizes of armature wire, craft leaves, ivy and tinfoil. the armature wire was then wrapped in green floral tape. I ended up needing a bigger pot later and opted out of doing clay leaves for fear of being damaged. I wanted this Audrey to be fully posable, the neck, mouth, tounge and leaves if he wants to, the leaves and ivy have wire inside of them already. Once baked i primered and painted the head with acrylic paints. I used a gloss coating spray to finish it. The veins on the larger leaves were painted blue with Acryilics as well. The main stem was wrapped in a green burlap ribbon material that had wire in it as well and hotglued everything. Originally I had q tip ends for the orange spots on the leaves but they kept falling off. The hotglue wasn't working for that, so I had to paint the orange dots on. The pot was topped off with some craft moss. What is unique about this sculpture is that it is poseable within reason. A very rewarding project!
Out of numerous phone applications I finally found one that kept my attention span...ArtRage! This is a spectacular free app that simulates using oils and pastels as well as the usual suspects and utilizes layers. You can get it here: https://www.artrage.com/artrage-android/ or on Google Play.
This piece was inspired by a story i'm writing. Originally wanted to do a graphic novel but now leaning towards having paintings to illustrate portions of the novel.
Baby Audrey 2 for my littlest. Armature wire, Sculpey, hinge, spring, acrylic paints, gloss finish.
I like to show off and write about the making of or process' of my works here!
