Today’s Art (9th May 2017)

Well, I thought that I’d make some low-inspiration art after finishing my latest webcomic mini series. So, today’s digitally-edited painting is a remake of an old picture of mine that I’ve already remade a few times. Here are the previous versions 2010, 2012, 2014.

Today’s Art ( 19th April 2017)

Well, although I was still feeling uninspired, I was able to get around it by making a new version of one of my old horror-themed paintings (called “Late Return) that was originally posted here early last year.

When I made the old version of this painting, I was just beginning my “limited palette” phase -and, although I’m glad of all I learnt during this phase, this particular painting certainly works well with a slightly more expanded palette. Likewise, I’ve also learnt a few new digital editing techniques that I didn’t quite know when I was editing the original painting.

Today’s Art (17th April 2017)

Well, I almost forgot! It’s the 17th of April and that means that it’s time for me to post a new version of the first picture that I made when I decided to practice making art every day back in 2012.

Here are the previous versions of this picture for comparison: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016.

This new version was made in a slight hurry and, unlike the previous version, I made heavy use of digital effects when editing this picture.

Extra Painting: “Another Bedroom In Arles” (After Van Gogh)

Well, after yesterday’s extra painting, there was another really interesting Van Gogh-related suggestion in the comments – namely that I should try to remake “Bedroom In Arles” in my own style.

Although I hadn’t planned to do this for a while, when I made a preliminary sketch, I realised that it wouldn’t be as difficult as I thought. Not only that, I also thought that the room in the painting looked a bit “empty”. So, I thought that I’d add some extra stuff and, before I knew it, my remake had turned into a 1980s/90s-style gothic horror cyberpunk painting.

And, yes, during my research, I learnt that Van Gogh used to do vaguely similar kinds of radical style changes when he copied other paintings. What can I say? I wanted to look for the “goth” in “Van Gogh”. And, yes, I know that it’s a mispronunciation, but ‘rule of cool‘.

Oh, before I post the painting at the end of the article, here’s the line art for it too 🙂

Since this ‘fan art’ is based on a public domain painting, it is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence (mostly because it’s too large/detailed for me to feel comfortable releasing it without any kind of copyright, like I did with yesterday’s mini painting).

Today’s Art (17th April 2016)

Although “Damania Resurgence” will return tomorrow, it’s the 17th of April today and this means that it’s time for me to post a re-make the very first drawing I made (on the 17th April 2012) when I decided to start making at least one piece of art every day.

I’ll also include the previous versions of this picture (from 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012) for comparison too.

Today’s Art (7th August 2015)

Well, I was still feeling uninspired – so, I ended up making a new version of one of my favourite paintings that I made last year. As usual, I’ll include both versions for comparison.
