Puppies!

A friend had their Weimaraner dog bred, which resulted in ADORABLE PUPPIES!!! So naturally, I had to document a glimpse of their utter cuteness.

So this is what I’ve been working on for the past two weeks. I needed a new profile picture on FB, so I decided to paint one. Before I began, I knew I wanted to do something different, and began researching other artists to draw inspiration. I was inspired by good ol’ Caravaggio.
At around the same time, I watched the latest Art Assignment video, which delightfully correlated with my intentions. Even though I had already started (as you can see in the video), I recorded myself painting, added a bit of art history, and boom-shaka-laka-boom: new portrait and video of my process.
For those who want to know, chrysanthemums are my birth month flower (November), and the insect in the portrait is a hummingbird moth.
For those who want to know more, symbolism time! White chrysanthemums symbolize compassion, joy, and a long life. Yellow chrysanthemums symbolize something else. Hummingbird moths don’t necessarily symbolize anything, but hummingbirds symbolize vitality, playfulness, and flexibility, while moths symbolize intuition and transformation. I’d like to think a hummingbird moth is a symbolism mash up of the two critters.
Anyway, this took about five or six hours in Photoshop. Thanks for looking!

#5 out of 100. Sherlock Holmes from BBC’s Sherlock. Ah, yeah. Purple shirt. Had to do it. An hour is barely enough time to give it justice (I, uh, spent a bit too much time on the face before I check and saw I had like twenty minutes left to do the rest of the body. :\ ), but I did my best!

First two paintings for Fallenzephyrart’s 100 Color Palette Challenge! Yow, that’s a mouthful.

Anyway, these lovely ladies are Ichigo and Momoko from Kamikaze Girls, one of my favorite movies. And one of these days, I’m going to get my hands on the book, which I discovered recently.

And if there’s a book, I’m totally going to read it no matter what. Ahem, moving on.

Both these paintings were done in an hour. An hOUR. WHEEZE. I thought I’d challenge myself, and limit myself to an hour. Because if I didn’t, I spend hours on one painting, trying to perfect it, and then get irritated it didn’t look perfect and then never post it. Ever.

So, one hour. Two down, ninety-eight to go.
