Once upon a time, mommy and daddy needed to go on a date. So they called Aunt Megan to come over and babysit. Suddenly, while Aunt Megan and the boy where playing in their room, climbing up the ladder and going down the slide, a bright blue light appeared at the bottom of the slide. Before they could blink *whooosh* they had slid down the slide and through the portal.
Suddenly, they found themselves in a strange new place….
My best friend got to make a suggestion for a painting, and this is the result.
You may note, that she was quite upset to find out that she was missing the adventure just to see a movie. I told her not to worry, I’m sure upon returning from their date and finding the children missing and a strange blue portal, SURELY they could investigate….
I wanted to come up with another other griffin-like animal combination. We have some large pine trees just outside our bedroom window. And the squirrels often wake me up in the morning, running up and down and up and down and up and down, making their strange little squirrel sounds.
I wondered, what kind of bird would logically blend well with a squirrel? An owl of course!
What do you call an owl-squirrel? Owrel? Anyways, I imagine it would rather snack on small mice and other small creatures rather than crunch nuts.
ArtRage, about 2 hours. 5×7.
I asked Facebook what I should draw today, and this is the one I picked:
5×7, painted with ArtRage. About 1.5 hours.
Two orphaned sisters, making income whatever way they can.
Some sketches for my current project.
This is a birthday present for my sister. Her word for the year is “OVERCOME.” Painted in ArtRage and Photoshop.
“A dinosaur fighting a robot on a spaceship crashing into earth with a musical instrument fighting a closet ogre.” This is what happens when you combine ALL the dailysketch suggestions into one.
Artrage, a few hours.
A fun quick painting of an orangutan and a boy in in the jungle. And a parrot.
Painted in ArtRage, about 2.5 hours.
I upgraded to ArtRage 4 recently, and have really been loving working with it. In fact, it might become my go-to painting program from now on. Here are the two most recent paintings completed:
I just installed the latest version of ArtRage and thought I would get some more practice with it. I really do love the natural paint texture you can get with the tools.
Anyways, Mary Poppins has been on my mind and so I felt inspired to get a little Victorian.
A live-action of AG Bear, a stuffed animal I’ve had since I was around 5 years old.
A new work in progress, the color rough. Tried something new with this one. I created the landscape in Sketchup first, and then used that as my light/perspective reference.
New painting complete. A young warrior is ambushed in the forest…
