Allie: do art

Project 1 is finished! I thought for sure this was on the verge of imploding just about every step along the way. But here it is, done, and with scans of all the steps it took to get it there.  I am absolutely relieved. 

I get to do this five more times before i run out of semester, and the goal is to hopefully get more comfortable working like this. Because I like the results! It’s just right now it’s extremely unpredictable; I just haven’t practiced enough in it yet.

The next one’s going to be a bit more complicated, and I’m also going to try and work at about half the size of this one. I was way too close to the deadline during the points where I really needed to be able to slow down and dig into some of the details for it, and while some of the things that happened because of that pressure were super neat, I’m still curious. I’m hoping it speeds me up a little bit, but I’ve never actually worked smaller than 15 x 22 making one of these paintings.

Anyway, the captions in the photoset describe the processes leading up to the final image, which was finished digitally in Adobe Photoshop CS6. I’ll also be posting it on my deviantart shortly!
