This is an ollddd painting. It was done at the end of 2012. yuck. It was done with traditional media, gouache on watercolour paper, however the contrast I added with photoshop makes it look awesome!
This is an even olderrrr... painting. However, I like how it turned out. The assignment was to replicate a painting of our choice. I went with the under the house scene from the Studio Ghibli film, The Secret World of Arriety. Perhaps not the most powerful story, but it had amazing layouts throughout. I was always fascinated by the idea of seeing the world through miniature size, and this film gave me the same intrinsic nostalgia as the day I played Zelda Minish Cap as a 12 year old. This painting took me around 15-20 hrs.
This is the original, scanned of the Arriety book I own.
Here is the black and white study, and this took me another 8-10 hrs.
This is Crowbar, your average mechanical crow (physically mechanical and is a mechanic professionally!)
The rest is self explanatory.... except the tire swing that looks like a leaf... (-_-;) This is actually a traditional drawing, it is done with a brush pen on printer paper.
