Photo study number 1 of 3 : I want this to have a slightly more painty feeling and still keep it in the same realism style. All painting has been completed in the same time frame to see progress. What a great exercise! One brush that I change the size of as I go.
This is a concept and idea I have been working on for a few years and this will be where I will share stories and updates on my development with the personal project. Here is the first image of my idea turned in to a graphic novel style. Below we can see a naked female and she is strong and in control, she fears nothing and nothing will stop her from her mission. The man you can see is a pleb and at the will of the female as are all males in 2029 - Church of Skulls. Why? What is in the females sack? who is in the Cabin? Why is the female naked? Where are we?
Church of Skulls has character motives and story that is messed up with a shocking twist.
This has been a fun project to work on over the years and can not wait to work on the first pages over the next 24 months.
I was fortunate enough to have an interview in the local paper talking Art, Inspiration and all things that motivational. Thanks for the interview! I have attached the link below so you can check it out.
I am really pleased to be in the local paper and their interest in Artists, little goal achieved!
Painting in the flesh has always had a really amazing feeling in person and a feeling that no photo or scanner will ever truly come across. It was my goal since December 2015 to pursue the medium and feel comfident using it. I have so far used reference to paint a forest, replicated some of my favourite album covers and even try break some rules to make something exciting and different.
