Merry Christmas from a very friendly Santa Claus

Cool lighting is definitely another animal. It is way too easy to make skin muddy. Texturing was fun though. I'm going to start using texture brushes more often. Trying to find a way to incorporate textures with more cartoonish drawings...

Time to do more studies. Until next time, Merry Christmas (and Merry "the other billion holidays celebrated around this time") and say hi to this Santa if you see him!

Dual Image Paintings

I forgot it was one of the criteria to change the colour palette between the paintings. Though I did that, it is very very slight, enough for Maureen and others to call me out on that. I went with an idea that's more subtle but it is perhaps too subtle for this assignment...

Maureen stated that my palettes are always looking towards the warm side and I agreed completely. Expect paintings during the holidays where I go the opposite direction.

Each is 9x12" Gouache on Cold-press Watercolour paper

Mood Landscape: Hong Kong 2146 A.D.

I think the wonky perspective is way too bothersome but it could be something else that makes me dislike this piece. I don't really know... Some people liked the wackiness of the concept. I wasn't one of them.

Somebody also called me out on the horrendously ugly signatures I put down. I've removed them for my next assignment.

Detective Fleabottom

Gosh, I suck at creating interesting characters... Bugged Enzo far too much for this one.
