Sharing some pics

Post by LaTrovatora on Sat Nov 03, 2012 1:41 pm

Hello everybody !!!

I hope to be in the right place to post these pics.... if not, please help me !!!
I would love to share with you some of my last work for the Day of the Dead, the first picture is a tribal one, the second is a steampunk sugar skul.
The Products I used are DFX and TAG
The brushes I used are Loew Cornell and Royal Majestic
(The Royal Majetic No. 2 is my favorite one Smile)

I hope you like it, and please feel free to give me any feedback.
Have a nice weekend !!
Elsa

They're both beautiful. I would never have thought to do steam punk sugar skull, but yours looks great.

I love the "patina" on the steampunk skull, with the slightly muted colors. I painted my daughter as a steampunk doll for Halloween and when you're using all those metallics, it's easy to get too new and shiny looking.

You already seem to have a delicate stroke. Unless you are meaning that the line work did not come easy for you and it took forever for you to do them - otherwise, I think your lines are better than you think they are! Very Happy

Thank you, Miss Ronnie, Smile sincerely what took me the most was to put all the ideas together.
For the lines I used a small brush, it is not easy for me to work with big brushes like no. 5, or 6, but I can do just everything with a no. 2.
I was painting on myself, so the first one took me like 45 min., and the second one a little bit more maybe an hour or so, it was the first time I try to do both of them, so yes, it took me some time to finish them anyway.
I hope I can earn speed too Smile
