Pinned toot

SAI for the painting and Clip Studio for some post processing. I have painted all the leaf.

It took me a while to realise the person sitting next to me on the wall was semitransparent.
"Um. Did you use to live around here?"
"No, I wandered a long time. But this feels like where I belong."
"Oh. Must be nice."
"Don't worry, everyone finds a place they belong. Eventually."

A set of twins as an xmas gift. This painting was cut in half so each owner could have the art of their twin mailed to them. They will be made whole again when the two owners meet in person at a future date.

Each half is 4"x6". I really like doing these symmetrical cut-apart paintings. I'll post pics of the ready-to-mail cards later once I get them prepped.

Drawn with 4 micron pens. Spent a lot of time on a programmatic way to make & sort patterns of vertical stripes using the 4 colors

Core & Birch - ink & watercolor

This is another contrast experiment: The drawing shows one of the reactor cores of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant; the painting are the birch trees around the area of Pripyat, the town next to Chernobyl.

This came out pretty much how I imagined it. 😊 Thanks to @Lana for the great watercolor tips! 🙏

(I'll post a timelapse of this tomorrow - too much to render!)

Digital pencil drawings in Krita. If anyone hasn't done so yet I reccomend you try Ramon Miranda's Charcoal brush set.

(full disclosure, my pastry chef roomie made the bread and it was delicious. all I did was pour wheat into a grain mill and take pics.)

A rocket launches. After the second stage separates, the first stage returns to Earth. It lands 5,000 years in the past, and is worshiped as a god.

I do physical art because at the end of a day of being mad at computers it feels good to cut shapes out of paper

I, too, work a full time job, but I also do most of the cooking and a lot of the other housework. I ain't got nothing left for the paintbrush at the end of the day.

I wish our economic system placed more value on stay at home spouses. We talk about them dismissively, use "housewife" as a pejorative, but their work is so important.
