Today’s Art (19th October 2017)

First of all, apologies if you’ve seen this digitally-edited painting before. I used it in one of my articles from earlier this year as an example of a failed painting. But, I ended up adding it to the daily painting line up because I was eager to get started on this year’s Halloween comic (which will start tomorrow, and has to start on the 20th in order to finish on Halloween. Hence the need for filler material for today, such as this painting)

So, that’s why today’s painting is a recycled piece of old failed art. But, stay tuned for some cool-looking comic cover art tomorrow 🙂

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is another Aberystwyth painting. Originally, I’d planned to make some gothic horror art, like this drawing from 2015 (which is based on the same old photo that I took in 2009). But, whilst editing this painting, I decided that it would be interesting to go in more of a 1980s horror VHS cover/horror novel cover kind of direction instead.

Well, due to time reasons, today’s digitally-edited painting ended up being another 1980s-style cyberpunk painting based on one of my old eerily deserted 5-6am photos of Aberystwyth from 2009. I only had time to add layered rain to the distant background in this painting though.

Like with my previous cyberpunk Aberystwyth painting, I added an extra digital effect that made it look like I’d painted it on fancy paper. Likewise, the line art for this painting looks more detailed than the actual painting.

Well, today’s (heavily) digitally-edited painting was a failed experimental painting. Basically, I’d tried to make an “impressionist” watercolour pencil painting by just using watercolour pencils without an underlying ink drawing. I was also fairly tired when I tried this. It failed abysmally, but at least I was able to salvage this painting with lots of digital editing after I scanned it.
