I am working on a new series based on my ink pad drawings. I am using a special transfer method to apply the images to the canvas or board. After that I coat the image with an acrylic medium glaze and gold acrylic paint. I am using the ink pad image as an underpainting and keeping some of the image showing while I’m glazing over certain parts. These paintings are influenced by Russian icons and Klimt’s paintings.
This is a portrait of Flickr artist Veterok for Julia Kay’s portrait party. I used Inkpad, a little bit of Percolator and ArtRage on the iPad. I really like her original photo because it has a timeless quality to it and the feathers were a great challenge!
I discovered an image of Nyah from Devil Girl from Mars randomly on Pinterest a while back. Finding obscure images and characters is one of my favorite aspects of Pinterest and Tumblr.
The description of Devil Girl From Mars on Wikipedia is as follows:
Nyah, a sexy, commanding female alien dressed in black vinyl, is headed for London. She is part of the advanced team that is looking for men to replace the dying male population on their planet. However, because of damage to her spaceship caused by entering Earth’s atmosphere, she is forced to land in the remote Scottish moors. She is armed with a raygun that can paralyze or kill, and has a menacing robot.
For this portrait I used Inkpad, Wordfoto, PicGrunger and put them all together using Sketchbook Pro. I wanted to give it the look of an aged movie poster.
