Fun fact: In Mad Max, Fury Road, when Immortan Joe's War Boys launch themselves into battle and spray their teeth with "chrome", it's *actually* Wilton's edible Colour Mist spray glitter. For the record, it smells like cheap vodka. If all goes well, it'll make my chocolates all shiny and chrome.
WITNESS ME ⚔️ 😤
Ugh, just saw the repeating pattern of the canvas texture... I'll have to learn to fix that, or add it later using a less mundane texture.
Yeah, please don't do these things, thanks 😅

DON'T FALL FOR IT.
- the values are too flat
- I should have left more of the paper white
- there's too much detail, and it's too messy
But any feedback would be appreciated!
Three sketches from yesterday's trip to the #Bristol #museum and art gallery. It's a much more peaceful place to sketch the animals, compared to London's mistral history, and there isn't a gift shop every exhibit. I don't know what went wrong with the hyaena, but I made him look cuddly and not at all the cunning viscous pack hunter.
I moved on to the faces of the #bargue plates, mid march. The one on the left is the second in the series, and I loved how it came out at the time, especially the darker shadow work (hopefully you can just make out the half tone of the eyelid and cheek).
The girl is the 4th or 5th in the series. The shadow work is kinda stripey, so looks like she's carved out of wood (a good effect if that's what you want it to look like that, but I didn't), but I like the band in the hair.
A couple more #bargue sketches I completed early March. Note the missing the poor guy on the right missing his bits. A process started with Pope Paul 4 (not as good as the prequel with Clubber Lang, but amazing music), I think.
I can only imagine the artist spent a lot of time deciding on the size, shape, and state of those bits, for some dusty sod to decide his god's own image is apparently disgusting enough worth adding a sledgehammer.
Here are the last two #bargue arms. I was really impressed in the more subtle shading, particularly in the forearm of the left and over the knuckles in the right. It's funny how 'less is more' applies to art, and for all the heavy line work, it's the soft gradient in values that sells it as a 3d structure. The cloth turned out pretty good also, I thought, as I haven't spent nearly enough time drawing fabric folds.
Learning to draw and paint about 20 years too late...
