Today just deserves to be marked.

Today was just a weird day, and a really sad one too. I don't feel like going into details, but it was an important day to me, and I'm sure the rest of my family. It's inevitable I'll make a post revealing why later.

Onto other things I feel like talking about. Character design was finished yesterday, when I get the chance I'll put all the panels into a movie type thing again. And cause I didn't feel like doing any work when I got home, I watched Atlantis. Which is kinda productive because I'll be animating Helga Sinclair from that movie starting tomorrow.

Painting again

second painting... much more challenging then the first. Started way uglier on the acrylic side than the last one. but I forgot to take the process pictures. Enjoy anyways.

Gotta do some serious painting before wednesday. still got one more of these to go.
I have to say I'm not a very good painter, it just takes a lot of time, and control over your paints. I think I'd probably do much better if I had gallons of gouache I could just slab on to fix up things. Or some device that automatically repeats the colours I made before.
Regardless keeping in theme to the last couple posts, thought I'd throw up the process work for the painting I have finished.
In order (left to right -> top to bottom) the original thumbnail (at about 1/3rd the size of the final). The acrylic base. My first gouache layer. The final painting. The lighting for my camera is kinda messed, because these were done over 2 days. Literally day, night, day, night. which is why the one's on the left look much better.

Oh and the giant sundial in the river will make sense when the second painting is finished.
