I really love this piece. ; - ;
Are you self-taught? YOU ARE GOOD!
Basically. I'm entering my senior year of college with a double major in English and Fine Arts; however, I only began oil painting in September of last year...and I began painting figures in November. Both my Painting I and Painting II professors were very open with just letting the students play and work with oils, critiquing us individually. Overall, I would definitely consider myself self-taught.
How do you submitt your paintings? Do you take a photo or scan them in? I was really curious because sometimes I make something with pastel that I like, but I just can't upload it to DeviantART that makes it look good
It depends on the size. This painting is 16" x 20" so it's much too large for a scanner. Instead, I take a photo of it outside (not directly in the sunlight) when the painting is dry. I've actually never scanned a painting before.
you know that what you painted there became hugely popular?
haha yes! I haven't had the time to say thank you to everyone just yet. I'm about to leave for a vacation.
You are an impressie artist. I am personally very glad that you use traditional method (paint and not digital painting) for your art. the work itself is VERY impressive and the canvas with all its details is an amazing piece. Keep it up
Thank you very much! As much as I appreciate digital works, there's just something about the traditional methed that draws me in. I'm happy you feel the same way! Thank you so much again.
why u posing weird
how do you scan a canvas painting?
You don't scan it - at least not one at this size (16" x 20"). You take a photo of it!
ohhh thanks now time to figure out how to take a good picture x.X
Make sure you take a picture of your work outside but not directly in the sunlight (cloudy days are best). Also make sure your painting is 100% dry!
I really love the eye contact. Fantastic painting in a cool ID.
Oooo.....that's awesome. Can't wait to see the finished piece. I've been really loving your literature-inspired portraits!
