Painting from Reference


Two of the main characters from the movie Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I used powdered charcoal,                        water color pencil, and water color.

Galadriel - Lady of the Light reference from google
I used charcoal on the hair of Galadriel, water color on the eyes and colored pencils on some area of the headdress/ crown.

Gandalf the grey and the reference from google
As for Gandalf, watercolor on the eyes and on the gray hair using detailing brush number zero (0). some classic colored pencil on the cheeks, but most of the area is powdered charcoal.

Watercolor study


I used watercolor tubes on this art piece found in an art shop. I considered concentrated-- less water            as a technique to achieve oil painting-like texture.

Pre-Halloween Drawing


      Hello out there, I created this piece of art using charcoal as a medium.An artist's Charcoal is made of finely organic material that are held together by a gum or a wax binder.
    
     Since Halloween will be celebrated on the last night of October, I draw a Reaper to be part of the celebration, my inspiration for this drawing is when I always went home late from hang-out with my friends, with full moon in the sky, and I think a reaper would be a great costume for Halloween parties.

    I hope you like it, Sorry, I'm a beginner on Charcoal drawing... 





      Other says it symbolizes death, but we don't have to fear death because we're all going to die someday, I do not want to be a spoiler but its up to themselves on how they will die..

Fruit And Colors

         One of my Favorite subjects to Paint is Fruit. After a couple of times figuring out what will be my next post after almost three years, I decided to take risks on painting still lifes combining several subjects using water color and oil pastels.

           This is my second time using an Oil Pastel as a medium and I can say that its a bit difficult to use, because of its solid and being blot when I tried to draw something on a paper using it. Notice how my oil pastel painting in my last post having a smudgy effect.

                My subject for the oil pastel are tropical fruits composed of passion fruits, a guava, pineapples and bananas. I was going to eat the fruits when I realize, why not make a still life combining the fruits, because I just remembered I had a post  still lifes of fruit only they’re a single subject.








       Watercolor is a water- soluble pigment and a medium probably first used by cavemans in paleolithic periods and it also contributes to the renaissance. It is also used in background paintings in cartoons,

         I had a hard time painting using watercolor because it requires still and smooth hand when using the paint brush, and also you have to learn the techniques on creating an effect; dipping your paintbrush into the water after you have picked a color will create a light effect. And also you have to wait to dry the paint before you put another layer.





             I hope you like my works, I am working on my watercolor paintings to be posted on my next blogposts, Thanks.
