Unique LA

My stand at Unique LA. It was a little windy down in Santa Monica. But it was great to meet people and other artists and get inspired. Altogether a nice weekend, but I hope the next time the event will be hold inside and in the downtown area.

Trainspotting step 4

I am adding a new layer for the shadows. I can easily change the values by changing the values on the transparency. I am adding highlights to the eyes and to the monkey to give him a wet look. I am darkening the background to give the shadows a better contrast. As a final touch I am adding some lettering above the characters. The entire image is done with vector elements and can easily be enlarged without loosing in quality. You could have also achieve the same effect in illustrator.

Trainspotting step 3

By using the "pen-tool" in photoshop i am coloring in the specific areas.

Trainspotting step 2

Clean up in photoshop. I adjusted the head position of rabbit. I think the head down works better.


Monkey illustration in 4 stages. I sketch out my first idea in photoshop, blocking out the composition and the color-feel.

final stage

I fill out the rest of the dark background. I color-correct some of the colors. I darkened the eyebrows. I changed the color of the mouth and nose. There was too much red. I give the skin-color a second coating to make sure the texture is nice and even. I paint the text, sign and let the painting dry. I will later on give the painting a varnish to protect the paint.
This painting is 36inches x 24inches. Usually I don't paint that large, but it has been fun. I am starting on a second painting in the same format.

stage 5

I am outlining the character and the edges with the dark color. This is a pretty tedious stage. You will need to keep a steady hand and a lot of patience.

stage 4

I put in the colors for the character.

stage 3

I paint in the background color. I use the brightest color first. It is easier to cover a bright color with a dark color.

stage 2

I paint over the outlines with a red base-color. The red color will shine slightly through the colors I paint on top. This will add to the texture of the paint and give the painting a warmer "feel".

Monkey Painting in six stages

I project a sketch onto a canvas. I retrace the lines. I paint over the lines with a dark color to block in the paint-areas.
