Yesss! I like this. Ha. It's stupid, it's colourful & it contains zombies. I also like the fact that I went for the full background colour, even if it is just an odd pattern, I like the none whiteness. Makes the white that is there pop more.
Okay, so I bought a blank hat so that I could paint a design on the bottom of the peak (cause I'm cool like that) & I thought I'd knock out a few rough designs rather than go straight for it. Get back into the uni way of things before everything kicks back in so...
I went for number 3. With a few minor adjustments for space & clarity.
End product. Blurry photo but all together the end result is better than I'd hoped considering painting with acrylic onto cotton isn't easy.
I love this. It was so fun to draw & I think it came out really well, I've tried to draw Hyenas before & it's always gone wrong. Good work me. I rate this up there with the likes of Wolf Boy Mk I. I also feel that my work in this style is getting better so... yeah.
Retna inspired. It's a bit dodgy but yeah, was fun to create random symbols that replace letters... If you can read this I'll give you a tenner. If anyone wants to try be aware that some letters have two symbols & theres a couple of spelling mistakes. Ha.
I have always loved all the Greek mythology. I used to have a tape set, 4 casettes with loads on them read by Tony Robinson. I don't know why I've never thought of drawing them before. Probably because I would of absolutely ruined anything I tried to draw from them but oh well. I'm pretty pleased with this. For me it's pretty in proportion for something I used no reference for at all. Straight outta the ol' brain this one. I just looked at some other pictures of Icarus on google to see how mine measures up. They are ALL falling. Now I know this is pretty much the crucial moment in the tale, but without the flight there would of been no fall. And to me thats the point in the first place. It was probably worth it considering he'd been imprisoned, to have that one moment of pure, unbridled, unadulterated freedom. Way to go out on a high.
I've been working on this for a while, due to the fact that it's oil paint on canvas and so takes forver to dry. Plus I've never actually used oil paints before so it's been interesting.
Today it reached the point where I'm happy with the contrast & the rendering & colours & balance. It looks a bit dodgy in the photo but the canvas looks good. Theres my DIY sketchbook again on the left.
This lovely item is made entirely from old Primark bags (apart from the thread & glue of course). It has 8 signatures of 16 pages, that makes 128 (including front and back cover). Each one is sewn together & then sewn (and glued because I got a bit lazy with the sewing) to the others. I used the handles off the bags to wrap around the spine to create a stronger bind & a semi-hardback effect. This took ages, probably about 4/5 hours total but I'm pretty happy with it. Brown paper is good.
