Hi guys! I wasn't sure what to draw, after trying several "serious" paintings, I decided to have some fun instead :)
As @ryivhnn inspired me to do a second dino plush, I sent him one of the NFT Showroom editions ^_^
This drawing took a bit under 40min, I spend a bunch of time figuring out the right brightness and saturation ^^
I started with a couple of references and the basic shape of the dino.
I simplified the shapes to make it look more like a toy. I tried to keep the style similar to the previous dino, but I wanted to make it as different as possible with shapes and color. This was fun and relaxing, I might do a couple more of dinos, but no sure how well a red or green one would look like, maybe a green pterodactyl?
Here you can see the value check. It's a black layer set to color, I believe this gives the most accurate preview of values. For example yellow is usually brighter than purple even if they're similar brightness.
This is the previous dino plush :) Which do you prefer? I like the blue color, but I prefer the shape of the new one.
Last but not least, are the little details, like the blush and seams. Also for the patch I used a little different pattern from the previous dino.
16 . I draw way more now, but I do a lot of quicker artworks along with regular paintings.
17 . I give advice constantly :D I only give advice I feel confident in and I always inform anything I'm unsure about.
18 . Perspective, I've tried and failed 3 perspective heavy paintings in the last couple of days. I can draw complex perspective very slowly, but it's still doesn't come naturally to me.
19 . Portraits, I need to practice more :)
20 . Environments, nature, they come quite naturally to me.
21 . Constantly, maybe a little too much :S
22 . Yeah, I had a big improvement jump this year, but I hope to continue improving steadily.
23 . Original art, even though my user picture is a Spirited Away fanart.
24 . Both xD If it's insanely good and doesn't feel ever achievable for me than I do get jelly. If it's something I think I can achieve in 10 years then I feel inspired :)
25 . Music, I've tried silence so many times, but I really can't get into the trance without music.
26 . Photoshop mainly
27 . This is a silly question, sometimes 1 layer, other times 50+, for a speedpaint it's around 10 layers including layer adjustments and turned off backup layers.
28 . I like watercolors lately. I really miss oil paints, but I'm not ready to invest into all of the equipment right now for oil paints.
29 . Check my previous posts? I mean I use different techniques depending on what I'm drawing. Usually soft wash of colors.
30 . Life? What's the point of art and not improving and learning new things. I'm generally very curious about everything and I feel that reflects in my artworks very much. I just want to try everything that peaks my interest.
If you make a Q&A post please share the link in the comments, I'd love to check it out!
I've tokenized probably a record number of art today on NFT showroom xD Lots of bonus heads thanks to so many art sales ^_^ <3
