Link Fan Art Test

I’m a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker for Gamecube.  I thought it would be fun to try drawing Link with my style.  I’m not sure I’m sold on the colored version just yet.  I tried to keep the coloring very simple.   I just cant figure out how to keep the loose feel of my pencils.  Feel free to leave feedback.  Love it? Hate it?  It’s all good.

Link Fan Art – Digital

Orange Little Monster

Here is the first of a couple of what I’m calling “Little Monsters” (I’m sure that is probably trademarked by now).  I want to continue to experiment with a children’s book style.  It also allows me to paint something simple and focus on basic color and appeal.  Feel free to critique, I’m still learning how to paint better digitally.

Drops

The following is my week 6 assignment.   I chose to do a study of a photo I found online.  I didn’t recreate the photo 100 percent because it had about a 100 droplets!  I like to take also wanted to just stray a little from the original photo because it was so busy.  In the end, It came out ok.  I think I have a tough time painting shiny objects.  Definitely need more practice.

Week 6 Drop Study

Candle Study

This week’s assignment was to explore painting something that was a light source like a candle.  This was a much better week for me after my fail at landscapes.  Jonah Lobe reminded me that I need to keep in the mind all of Don’s fundamental teachings when approaching this assignment.  Value and big shapes, then details.  Really helped out.  I had a lot of fun painting this and I might take another crack at landscapes again.

Bad Landscape Painting – Week 4

I actually hesitated to post this week’s assignment.  This was my first landscape painting…ever.  Unfortunately it’s horrible.  I started out thinking “I can do this!”.  I started with a sketch I liked and midway through I had no clue where I was going.

There a lot of issues. The mountains feel flat and unrealistic.  I overworked the trees and the colors don’t feel very good to me.  I’m posting it in hopes that one day I will be able to look back at this painting and laugh.  Time will tell.

Color Study

This is my first attempt at a color study.  Not really thrilled with it, so I will probably put a little more time into it soon.  I want to also attempt a couple of other color studies from the images Don provided.  This painting thing is hard! :)
