BTW, one of my aims in this series is that even though I emphasize singular brush strokes very much, I want them to become obscure and hidden, die the viewer to wonder which stroke was made when. I want the strokes to dissolve almost organically. I think I managed to do that better with 3 and 4 than with the first two.
Still really like these. 🖤
@TQ Yo! These are dope!
@heroicsoftware Thank you! 😘
I especialy like the third one, made me think of 馬 at first look.
@floppyplopper oh, that's cool. I only learned hiragana and katakana though and don't know that kanji...
It's traditional Chinese for horse. I only learned about 100 characters, that's one of the first I learned.
When I can get the gist of something in Japanese, that's tremendously exciting for me.
@floppyplopper That's so awesome!
@TQ what are your thoughts on monochromatic work? Does the simplified pallet make it easier to focus on expression? Does it make it harder to convey the feeling?
@cryptoxic Guess it's different for everyone, but it's definitely harder for me. Colors are an easy way for me to insert interest and movement and layers into a work. Using only one color robs me of these shortcuts, which is good for me as I have to put in more manual work and effort. I like that.
@TQ love these. Looks like a dragon fight
@sconlan yeah, I can totally see that! 🐉
@TQ The third one is really impressive! Full of movement. 😍
@Lyrilith Thank you so much! 💖
@TQ Paint-wise I have been in a funk lately. I login here and see your amazing work and it inspires me. Thanks so much. You are an incredible artist.
@sikkdays Wow, I think that must be the most amazing thing I heard this week! Thank you!
@TQ woow, die 3 und die 4 würde ich mir ohne zu zögern an die Wand hängen.
@rixx 💖 Danke dir! (Falls du sie wirklich wollen würdest, sie sind verfügbar. Aber no pressure!)
@listentofas Thank you very much!
@TQ I love the third one, looks like an awesome 1 on 1 battle
@SirLotsaLocks Thank you! 😊
@TQ Cool - asemic writing!
@drwho Yeah, I like to do that sometimes.
@TQ FUCK these are good
@TQ Seeing your output be so consistent makes me wonder how many pieces you do not display. How many paintings does it take to get these 4?
@dualhammers *blush* 4.
And the 46 I did in the past weeks. But I showed them all here. I post all of my stuff that is even halfway presentable here. I like to show my process and encourage others to start creating.
@TQ I am similar - I don't like throwing anything away, but I am not as skilled as you yet so they don't look nearly as good.
You must have a big scanner at home to get those into post form for your etsy
@dualhammers I use a camera. It's a bit of work, but scanning big format paintings is such a hassle...
@TQ That's pretty impressive - the prints look very good
@dualhammers it's a good camera and I have experimented a bit when and where to take the pics. It's been a journey, but now that I've figured out the process it's fine.
@TQ Do you actually sell those? I'd really like to get one.
