Gods of Rock - Ongoing Project

So, as I mentioned, I was contracted to do 30 portraits for an upcoming video game.  I have finished the first 5 portraits in the past three days.  Only 25 more to go. ;)

Here they are:

I had the wrong dimensions on the first one, and I thought to double check but alas, I didn't. *sigh* Thankfully, they were able to stretch it to fit.  Anywho, these are them.  Five tiny paintings. I did them at about 4 times this size and then shrunk them down to the required size.  James gave me the most trouble. I had to employ the help of my friend, Beth, who is also an artist, to tell me what I was getting wrong because I was too close to it to see it. She helped a whole lot!

Well shucks, it turns out I was on the very wrong track. I've taken down the pictures and shall go back to work and try to get it right this time. =)

Migraine Art

I was trying to describe to my friends what my migraine aura looks like (I rarely get them but have gotten two in the past three days) and I thought it might just be easier to paint it. It is a quick sketch, but this is what I see when I close my eyes when I have an aura.  Of course, it moves and swims, so I can never look at it directly, but I always think of it as an Aboriginal lizard. Of course again, it is made of light so imagine this flashing and every triangle cycling a flash between the white, yellow, pink, and blue... there is clear in there too, with white outlines.  When my eyes are open, the lizard flashes and swims and blocks out whatever I am looking at.

Upcoming art

I am sorry for my silence.  I am still here, I just haven't been creating a durned thing.  I shall be, shortly though, as I have been contracted to start a series of mini paintings for a video game.  I shall surely post them here while I work on the 30 pieces I will be doing. I am to begin Wednesday.  Until then, Aloha Makapi'pi!
