Reddit Gets Drawn

Recently found that subreddit and I have been having a great time painting.  It's nice to have a new selections of subjects every day.  And some of the pictures are also really great stock photo resources.

Here's what I've done so far:

Just a value study.  The values got kinda weird when I uploaded it.

Weather App

So the boyfriend had a school project to make a weather app using...something with Google, I dont know the technical half, but it was just supposed to be an app that visually tells you the weather in whatever place you want.   He needed some art for it, and since I'm pretty much a good person, I helped him out.

Also we decided that we would continue with this project just because the art didnt turn out so bad.  I kinda churned this out in one given more time we're gonna create some more stuff, and change a few things.  But this is what I have!

Some night time shit.

And a sun.


Apocalypse Snow

Yeah so that's the gist of it.  Here's the actually website link.

Eventually it's gonna look good actually.  We're planning to make it so it can tell if you're in an urban/suburb/rural area and the house and scenery would change based on that.  Also make clouds, since that happens.  And a few other things I cant remember right now.  Something about seasons too or whatever?

This is like the first hardcore working thing I've done since school.  Stayed up till it was like 9 am doing it, just like the good old times.  My hand was sore too hahaha.

Strange Fruit Colors

Alright so here's some beginning colors. I like most of them but I'm kinda worried about my crow. I dont wanna mess up, but I think I can pull it off in the end.....?

Strange Fruit

Ok so here's a redo of a previous painting I did.
It can be a poster or even a book cover but it's based on the lyrics of the song "Strange Fruit" performed by Billie Holiday.

The song is a poem about lynchings in the south.
Here is the poem:
Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant South,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh!

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

So we got some crow, some blood on some leaves, and I'm gonna try to get some pastoral colors in there.
I also want to see if it's possible to create that oily shine that crows have without too much difficulty.

This is the start of the final image.

These are the color studies, the bottom one is the one I'm using.

Degree Project

My Dad was interested in getting a link to pictures of my degree project, so I figured this is the best place to post it! Right?
