Wow 2 posts in 2 days! I was bored at home on a friday night with nothing to do, so I did this wee painting.
When I am at work, inbetweening, I find it helps me to stay focused and energised to have a sheet of paper on my lightbox to do quick doodles on. So if my hand is cramping up, or my brain is beginning to hurt haha, I do a couple real quick doodles on my bit of paper. 20 second doodles, not long. It works! After that Im ready to go again.
This image started as one of those doodles. I was messing around and I drew a wee dragon thing which i liked so I snapped it up with my phone and painted him up tonight!
Interesting thing. Camera phones arent superb quality (well my k750i isnt, esp in a dimly lit room!) so the resulting photograph is grainy and slightly blurred and off colour. BUT! I think this is a good thing. It adds a lot of texture to the base drawing and gives a nice starting tone sometimes. SO I think I may do this more often. Instead of scanning my doodles, snap em with my camera and paint into them. Here is a GIF of my work in progress:
Hope you all enjoy!
