On a pale horse

some Arya Stark fanart for ya.
i wanted to be a bit bolder and rougher with my painting style. something a lot of digital artists do is only use soft edge brushes and the result is a bloby mess. it takes some guts to take a nice smooth section of a painting and then go over with some sharp brushes. but i found building up lots of details bit by bit kept the painting in check without it looking too contrasted. the jerkin she's wearing was surprisingly easy to paint, her left sleeve however was a nightmare. i used a excellent photo reference from the show but as she was lit for television there wasn't much drama so i punched up the shadows. i also added more darkness to her face as i thought it reflected the character more.

Big Ole Post

Ah man, has it been a long time since i posted here. Insane work commitments meant i couldn't post or even make personal art for the last four monthes or so. so instead of posting some stuff individually here are a bunch of paintings all in one dump.

something you may notice is that most of these are portrait. possibly due to the fact i have been primarily working in landscape. specifically 16 by 9 for such a long time. with the exception of character design.  anyway. i aim to start posting here more frequently until i am once again employed full time.

I’m taking a break from historical mood setting works for kids to do some figure studying. this sketch then kind of morphed into a painting and then i had to finish it to save face. its a little art school rubishy but I’m pleased with the pose.
