So, this was an easy theme, it practically did itself!
There were actually a number of things I could post about here this week, haha. But I'll only choose one, for a change going with brevity.
I decided to paint Face one day this week. I thought, he looks really comfy, surely he'll stay right there. Uh-huh. He moved after I had seven (quick!) strokes from my pen. He actually adjusted himself again shortly after I began attempt #2, but I kept on with that one anyway.
This is an ACEO on bristol, pen and watercolor marker and watercolor stick and watercolor crayon.
Edit: Oh, wow. I messed up in posting this even...I didn't hit the button last night!!
Jessica and I are at it again. :D Our joint theme this week is negative space. Negative space is the space around a (positive) object.
Negative space is an interesting thing. It's something I like to play with in floral design sometimes, thus the idea for my little ACEO here. I also was thinking about designs of the type of card you would include with a floral arrangement.
Japanese watercolor, watercolor marker, watercolor crayon
Next is sort of combining this idea with last week's (I had wanted to do this last week, but hadn't managed it.)
I've been wanting to animate one of Scarlett's adorable horses, and here is work on my first attempt. Negative space is something that is important to keep in mind in animation, though its importance would probably be more evident in a more realistic version of this. ;)
Flip through these quickly if you want to see the movement, as I haven't actually animated it together in a...thing. (My scanner didn't really scan these all the same size, so that in combination with my severe lack of perfection makes this a little wonky, but the idea is there at least.)
The original design is Scarlett's. :) This is done on some really cool plastic paper stuff...of which I cannot currently think of the name. Durafix? Something like that. (Edit: Dura-lar. That's it. Is Durafix a battery or something? Tape? Glue? It should be something.)
Edit! Jessica was sweet and she made me up a gif. :) Will keep original images here, too, just cuz.
