Colored Halfweek

I have been busy this week with pencil and colored pencil. Often its just drawing from imagination but a focus on landscapes and characters. Molding them together.

On Friday I cutup brown paper into long stripes to use. Just like at art school!

image

Pencil on paper. One request was the sunflower (see right of ‘William’). I love requests! Several characters are also created, then a landscape. Notes on the right regarding color.

image

Color pencil. I could not find a green pencil. I wanted to cover the landscape and maybe areas of ground with it. Instead I used browns, reds and blues. Purple lightning!

Oil pastel. This is a train track. Blue water is flooding the track. Character portrait on the left. Red house in the distance. It’s raining blue.

 

image

STOP GO sign request. Could not find red, went with green. Had to color background blue or would of felt incomplete.

image

Final landscape request. Started with a star. Houses include a fire-station (with pole!).

Cheers,

Dolly felt work

I’ve been doing art at Fairfield Community Centre in the afternoons.
One of my regulars is Dolly.

image

Here she is working on her ‘Fairy House’ – gouche on white paper.

image

Her Feet People. It was a rainy day. Her shoes and socks were wet. She took them off.
She has excellent ideas regarding art activities and came up with the idea of tracing her feet.
This tracing of her feet was developed further into characters.
The character on the left is Dolly and on the right is me  – William. The characters are holding hands :)
The clothing and colors are the same as what we were wearing. Awesome obsovational traits.

image

The fairy house that she created. Started with pencil, then gouche, finally feltpen.

I hope you have enjoyed Dollys art, more in the future.

LD48 – connected worlds concept art

Hello.
Been awile since an update.
Lost my tablet pen but found it again, and it’s taken me a bit to get back into digital painting since then.
I have been busy with drawing and painting with children. Felt pens, pencil, oil pastel, and poster paint has been the medium of choice.
Here are digital painting s I created today for Ludum Dare. The theme is connected worlds.
I’m looking at creating an open world mmo-like zone. Models will be created tonight and I’ll put everything together in Unity3d on Sunday.

Portrait I painted of Reddit user – syntheticturtle.

This was from redditgetsdrawn.

I’ve started working on another game – this time for the Peace, Love and Jam. It starts next weekend but I’m going to just work on it during the weekend since I don’t have time during the week.

I’ve been setting up an easel at Fairfield Community Centre to get the after-school kids to do some art. It’s great – got a minute of six year olds, up to twelve. I’ll make another post in the future with some of these images (been taking photos on my phone).

Enjoy this digital painting, three layer, line, gray, and color.

Digital line. Created in GIMP. Reference was sun 3d model. Landscape from imagination.

Digital painting. Started 3d but then realized that I hadn’t saved off grayscale layer. Undo till back to grayscale. Saved off, but could not be bothered to redo the color layer.

Maybe later but likely never.

bbk – Future is now

I have been busy writing python code and working on a wiki site (powered by MediaWiki).
The wiki is http://brobeurkids.com.

The game jam that I am currently doing is Mini Ludum Dare 53rd – THE FUTURE IS NOW.

Oh and I have a name for the game – Future Summer. Third person most likely, but want to make it easier to look around at the world and get a better look.

Here is art that I have been created recently for BroBeurKids and mLD53:
