If you visit regularly, you'll notice a lot of redesign of specific pages, mostly the portfolio pages that have the greatest amount of imagery. For several years I have been wanting a more clean, easily view-able thumbnail/album format for my portfolio. Although this NEW ART blog is mostly unchanged, you can now flip through Painting: Scapes, Portraiture, Silver and Black: Organic Mosaics, and my new Cosplay Art portfolio albums quickly, and you can efficiently click on thumbnails out of each entire album, or view them altogether at one glance as a body of work. Feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback! Enjoy!
Next in my Cosplay Art Series, I have completed an acrylic painting measuring 16 x 20 inches of the Joker from "The Dark Knight," as portrayed by cosplayer Zaratuth. This was a relatively quick painting, and though much of the facial features are obscured by the white make-up, I made sure to define all the distinguishable features of the person underneath. The setting for the photo used as source material was a University of Alabama Homecoming bonfire.
This week has been building up to this latest painting and timelapse. Taking alittle longer, this newest artwork is of my brother-in-law: super-soldier Jacob Summers, a serviceman and recent award-winning body-builder, and also fellow cosplayer. Making Captain America his own, this painting required several pieces of imagery (both him in costume and other resources) to fully assemble.
Of course the second half of this recent endeavor has been improving these time-lapses (which I owe special thanks to my husband), not only cleaning them up to a more professional standard, but also better documentation of the entire process, start to finish, the mistakes and the successes. More visible than in any previous videos, you see when I have to redo certain parts for the sake of accuracy and perfection, as best as I can achieve it with my skill.
Thanks and enjoy watching me work!
