Here is my second #Valentine #digital #painting entitled ‘Love on The Still Waters’. It will be part of my collection of thirty called #whatvalentinesdo. I also have a link video of the process on the #procreate app link here: Love on The Still Waters
Morning, I thought I would share the art process for this little Angler a Fish. This is a digital painting done completely in procreate and my approach in colouring him in is slightly different. I usually use the colour black to sketch.
Image 1: I used a mustard colour to do the basic sketch of my little character. The animals in the favourite animal series Vary in size and I always try to make them flow together, the child and animal.
Image 2: here I start to add the colour of the fish. It’s a kind of rust brown. My research revealed different dark tones that the angler fish has. I really liked this warmer colour. Once I know what colours I am using. It starts to create adventurous associate colours.
Image 3: for some reason a turquoise blue popped into my head. I tend to expand to the range of shades within a colour group. So in my next picture I add other blues to that particular section.
Image 4: I have added the skin tone. The rustic brown is also on the lower body area now and it’s all about tying it all together.
Image 5: the Finished artwork. I have tried to take on the persona of the boy in tandem with the expected awkwardness and ugliness of the Angler Fish.
This is a video of the process on YouTube.
My artist for this week is Amy Sol. You can find her website link here. She is another amazingly talented artist. I love the soft tints of her colours. Her work is impressive, it has alot of unique characters displayed from one painting to the next. She is so interesting because she also mixes her own colour pigments, she also lets the wood grain she paints on to play a part in the work, very kool.
