Indigo Rising

My Indigo entry for my Rainbow badge challenge. A dragon flying upward.

Hello all. I’ve been stripping out my studio area, so have had to catch up on this entry over 2 days. I may have more to do, so if I get behind with monitoring entries, don’t worry. I’ll get to you all in the end!

Anyway, for Indigo, I wanted to attempt to do the lightning effect I did with Blue Lightning but with better quality. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it isn’t any better, but I tried…

The main subject is the dragon flying upward. Ive used both true indigo and ‘electric’ or purple indigo to do this. I’ve noticed all of my entries have been consistently portrait, and some have perspective effects, so I’ve done the same here to maintain that consistency.

I did the highlights differently using a 0.7mm Posca paint pen I’ve recently brought. The pen is rather nice to use and is smooth. One thing that wasn’t smooth though was my level of motivation… You may or may not be able to notice that by looking at this, but doing this without being in good spirits was rather tough.

Either way, I wish you a great week ahead, and look out for the final main colour of the challenge. Cheers all. Enjoy!

The next entry colour is “Violet”. Stay tuned and stay inspired with me everyone!

I normally post every Monday, but as I’m doing this challenge, my next entry may be posted on Tuesday instead. Cheers!

Blue Lightning

blue-lightning

This is my Blue entry for my Rainbow badge challenge. A superhero fighting a bad guy.

Ah…ok…Going to be quick with this or this entry will be late, but I’m not entirely happy with this. Firstly, I kind of made loads of mistakes and couldn’t decide for the life of me what pose to draw this superhero… That took up some time, and it made me rush harder. I appreciate this may not look so polished because I’m such a klutz, so do excuse that.

This had potential, but I knew I had set myself up to fail because I put so much pressure on myself to get it right first time. Not a good thing to do my friends… Learn from this mistake and go for your artwork no matter the cost, but take your time! You have 2 days for each colour!

One more thing, I did this on Bristol Board which, although claims to take light washes, did not take my light wash so well, so I had to switch to pencil and die ink to colour. Additionally, the black ink I used for this isn’t waterproof… A total accident… I’m not clumsy at all am I? Haha.

Well anyway, despite all the mistakes, I do hope you enjoy my work. Cheers all!

The next entry colour is “Indigo”. Stay tuned and stay inspired with me everyone!

Thanks. See you all next time.

Orange Orient

orange-orient2

Orange Orient – My Orange entry for my Rainbow badge challenge. A royal Chinese woman with a Chinese Lion.

Happy Chinese new year everyone! I know it’s late now, but it’s still the 28th here (Just about…) so it still counts, haha.

I’m going to be quick because I haven’t got much time yet to write this before this submission is late. Since I did a tribal man and tiger yesterday, I decided to mirror that today with a royal Chinese queen character alongside a Chinese Lion. It is Chinese new year after all, so it made sense to do something relevant that linked in with both subjects.

As per my consistency ‘pact’, this was completed in line and wash style. Anyway, enough of me badgering on, I do hope you all aprove. See you next time.

The next entry colour is “Yellow”. Stay tuned and stay inspired with me everyone!

Red Tiger Spirit

red-tiger-spirit

This is my Red entry for my Rainbow badge challenge. A Tiger and a man standing together and looking strong.

I’ve launched my new challenge and I must admit, it’s gone off to a stressful start… There has been some confusion and some misunderstanding overall, I’m hoping things improve, but let’s see until then.

The basic rules is to do one (or more) pieces each in the colour of the rainbow. There is a 2 day window for each colour.

I wanted to do something powerful for this entry since red is quite a passionate colour, so I’ve drawn a strong tribal man and tiger together. They’re supposed to represent strength and spirit in human and animal form, hence my title.

This was done in ink in a line and wash style technique. I’ve decided to focus purely on that style for this challenge for consistency. I do hope you like my work. Thanks for stopping by.

The next entry colour is “Orange”. Stay tuned and stay inspired with me everyone… Bye for now!
