Here’s my third attempt with acrylics.
I’m still using a monochromatic approach but this time using burnt umber paint (brown).
I’ve been 3D modelling an anthropomorphic rabbit for my project with John Fulton.
Here are a few process screenshots:
I learned a couple of nifty tricks in Blender doing this:
I’ve been meaning to try my hand at painting using a traditional medium such as acrylic paint for some time now.
I finally took the plunge and whilst I’m not completely happy with the result, I did really enjoy myself!
I struggled to get the right tonal variation whilst working with variation in colour as well here but I am calling this done and moving on. It’s so much easier working digitally since you can just set the value slider to get the right tones for the selected colour. Here I will have to learn how to mix paint physically!
My friend and published author John Fulton, has written a collection of 9 science fiction short stories and needed some artwork to accompany his writings.
I am pretty excited to be working with him as his artist on this project to see if we can’t get it published on Amazon Kindle.
John has a website where he blogs about his writings and posts some well written book reviews. Check it out at http://www.johnkfulton.com/.
To help me organise myself a bit I am going to tag any work I do on this with “JKF-1”.
To get into the swing of things I’m doing a few studies of relevant subjects.
