Today’s Art (19th November 2018)

Well, it’s been a little while since I made any cyberpunk art and although this digitally-edited painting was a little bit minimalist, I quite like how it turned out 🙂

Today’s Art (18th November 2018)

Well, thanks to feeling a bit more inspired (and having a bit more time), today’s digitally-edited painting turned out much better than my past four paintings or so have. But, it ended up being somewhat random though. Basically, I’d originally planned to make a heavy metal-themed painting, but then I felt like making a cyberpunk painting instead but, when I actually started sketching, the painting turned into a random 1980s-2000s punk/goth/emo-style painting instead.

Well, today’s (very heavily) digitally-edited painting is another memory painting. This one is another painting of Portsdown Hill at night that was based on my memories of seeing it during a car journey a while before I made this painting.

Although I probably didn’t get every precise detail right, and this painting required a lot more digital editing than I expected (including adding some digital lighting effects – here’s a version of the painting with fewer effects), it still looks at least somewhat like my memory does. Plus it also gave me a chance to experiment with some techniques for painting rain in a more “realistic” way.

“Portsdown Hill Again” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (16th November 2018)

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is a memory painting based on a pair of vaguely gothic-looking trees that I saw on a walk near Westbrook on a gloomy afternoon a few hours beforehand. Although I probably got some of the details wrong (and did something a bit weird with the perspective too), I quite like how this painting turned out 🙂

“Westbrook Gothic” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (13th November 2018)

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is a stylised self-portrait. This was mostly because I was in a bit of a rush before I started painting and I suddenly remembered a random thought that went through my mind when I was playing a set of “Doom II” levels called ‘Stardate 20×7’ the previous day.

Basically, I thought that it would be absolutely hilarious if there was a painting of someone playing “Doom II”, with the pretentious title of “The ‘Doom II’ Player”, kind of like how old paintings (such as Caravaggio’s “The Cardsharps“, Manet’s “The Absinthe Drinker” or Toulouse-Lautrec’s “The Laundress) elevated ordinary everyday life to the classic canon of art. So, not having a better idea, I decided to use this one as the basis for a self-portrait.

Well, although today’s digitally-edited painting ended up being a little bit more random and minimalist than I expected, I quite like how it turned out. The main inspiration for it was probably the fact that I happened to be watching the TV mini series adaptation of “Dune” at the time.
