Paintbox

Art, cosplay, and probably tea

Whole bunch of photos from Birmingham comic con sunday up on the facebook - check it!

Most recent (but actually a couple of weeks old) painting done at uni. Finally sorted out what I’m doing, just a shame a certain tutor screwed me up for two thirds of the year.

What I’m currently working on - charcoal study of Herbert Draper’s ‘Lament for Icarus’ Currently about 70 hours in, and pretty pleased with it so far!

Day 25! Quest complete!

I DID A THING AND DIDN’T GET DISTRACTED/FORGET ABOUT/BE LAZY.
Rather pleased with myself right now! Really loving the oil pastel brush, when I’m more confident with it. When I start fiddling, then it get washy and bleh. Colours pretty good, but could still be better. Proportions still needed a bit of adjusting - but happy!
Added a first vs last pic as well - I think you can see improvement, but that may just be wishful thinking!

Day 24!A redo of a painting that should be quite familiar! Tried adding the more painterly style I’m developing to it, and i rather like how it came out. Would like to work into it more though!
