Well, although it was incredibly rushed, today’s art is a digitally-edited drawing that is based on this photo I took of a sunset last May.

Today’s Art (11th April 2019)

Well, although it was a little bit rushed (and I had to leave out some trees for time/practicality reasons), today’s digitally-edited drawing is based on this photo I took last May. And, yes – in the right lighting and from the right angle – this building reminds me a lot of the pyramid-like Tyrell Building from “Blade Runner“.

“Westbrook – I Can’t Believe It’s Not ‘Blade Runner’ ” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (8th April 2019)

Well, today’s digitally-edited drawing is the fourth (and final) one in my recent “Westbrook Sunset” series (you can find the previous three drawings here, here and here) and it was based on part of this photo I took last April.

I also used a lot of artistic licence with this one. In addition to leaving out some complex tree branches (for practical reasons), I also tried to give this picture slightly more of a “1990 cartoon” look (since the area really hasn’t changed that much since the ’90s) in addition to using things like film grain effects, subtle colours etc.. to give it an ominous atmosphere that was inspired by parts of the classic horror game “Silent Hill 3“.

“Westbrook – Embers Of The Day” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (7th April 2019)

This is another digitally-edited drawing (based on this photo of a sunset I took last April). Like with the previous couple of drawings (which can be seen here and here), I’ve tried to make this one look more realistic by digitally sampling some of the colours from the original photo (although I ended up altering the saturation levels slightly).

Unfortunately though, trees really don’t turn out that well in this type of art – so, this digitally-edited drawing didn’t end up looking quite as good as I’d hoped.

“Westbrook – Dusk” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (6th April 2019)

Well, I was still in the mood for making digitally-edited drawings, and this one is based on another photo I took of a sunset last April. Like with yesterday’s art, I’ve also been experimenting with directly sampling the colours in the artwork from the photo (although I tweaked the saturation levels slightly, so the colours are technically different from the photo).

“Westbrook – Fire In The Sky” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (5th April 2019)

Well, I wanted to try something different with today’s artwork. This is a digitally-edited drawing (based on this photo of a sunset that I took last April) but, unlike some of the digitally-edited drawings I’ve made, I wanted to make this one look a bit more realistic by sampling the colours directly from the photo (if you look at the bottom right-hand corner of this “Work In Progress” version of the picture, you can see small segments of the photo that were used for colour sampling).

Surprisingly, this turned out better than I’d expected – even if the sky looks slightly different to the photo and the houses ended up being blue instead of grey/magnolia (this happened in the photo for similar reasons to the famous “what colour is the dress?” optical illusion from a few years ago. But, I decided to keep the houses blue in the finished painting since they contrasted well with the sky).
