Huge Ass Fucken Update Part 2

These are two special pieces I did during winter break. I just really wanted to learn more about painting and just went into these trying out anything I could.

They're actually done in a really unorthodox way, with acrylic going over the oil. Usually artists do oils over acrylic. But they did serve their purpose and I learned a lot.




This next one is another from media class. This technique is called "Every Hair on the Dog" we basically make the most detailed pencil drawing we can and go over it in thin washes of acrylic to add color but keep all the details.

So I have a lot of old school assignments i still haven't posted. I'll try to set them up by class and media I guess.

These were done in media class learning watercolor techniques. I actually have a few more of these since they were really fun and easy to make. Most haven't been scanned yet though.


This one was a done in scratch board and was also fun, even if it was kinda tedious. It also made it into one of the student shows called "Illest of Ill", it shows off select work from the Illustration majors.

The smoke was added in digitally. Some called it cheating, but a teacher once told me that other artists will use any tricks they can to beat us, so we have to do the same.
