So recently I’ve been getting back into oil paint for a number of reasons. My philosophy is that every art form reinforces the other, so when I paint it strengthens my drawings which strengthens my sculpture which strengthens my Graphic Design all simultaneously. Secondly, I have for the longest time worked primarily without color so I feel it’s necessary to understand it better for my career through painting on the side. And Lastly it is just an aspiration of mine to be a good painter and get my work in the galleries.
In conclusion I feel like I’m going to put this particular piece to the side or use the other side of the canvas for now for a painting exercise I hope to show and explain next week for now though onto to sketches of the week.
Sketch of the Week
So I’ve been trying to spur creativity by splitting my sketches in half. One with references and one without. Hopefully this will help in creating pieces without a total reliance on the reference. Besides that I dove into some character design at the top by characterizing the an outfit into a set personality. From a officer’s uniform to an adventured explorer. I may reuse this for a project in the future to help create mascots for branding.
Hope you guys enjoyed! Can’t wait to see you next week!
