More digital, still attempting to experiment a bit. Done using a photo of Japanese supermodel Tao Okamoto as reference.
Once again I was at the base of the mountain to make the same journey I had countless times before. Is this my fate? To wake up here time and time again? No. This time I journey away from the mountain.
Some Journey fanart. I wanted to try and imagine if Journey was taken into another environment, so here is a forest presumably you would come across if you went through the desert the opposite direction of the mountain for long enough. Hope you like it!
godlovesbacon asked: Hey Luke, Love your work, the Hattie Watson digital work is beautiful. When your working in digital can you explain your process a little? I'm attempting some stuff using just my phone and the apps available but I'm curious about work on computer.
When I’m working digitally I start out with the big shapes on a toned background, like the shape of the face, the hair, the coat. Just super simple without any features. I gradually put in the more complex shapes, and if I think it’s getting to complex I’ll paint over it with simpler shapes. I’m still figuring it out myself though, so I’d just experiment and figure out what works best for you.
If you have an iPhone i’d check out Procreate, by far the best painting app I’ve seen. Hope this helped!
A study trying to get a bit re-acquainted with digital again. Done from this.
A few simple drawings done from vintage photos by Albert Arthur Allen. Graphite and marker.
Here’s another of Brooke Eva! Couldn’t resist doing a portrait, quite the pretty face. Hope I did her justice. Ink, gouache, and a bit of black prismacolor, the usual tools.
A study I did from this photo reference. Mixed media with graphite and digital. Trying to get re acquainted with digital, as well as incorporating tradition into the digital.
