I think I might've actually finished this little painting!
|Finished painting, amongst the debris on my table!|
I started it a month ago, as a quick little thing....and it quickly went wrong. I drew the linework in with a pen that wasn't waterproof, and when i underpainted it...it smeared evvvvverywhere!
|Rough Pencil work on board, and the original doodle!!|
|Line work done in stupid fucking non waterproof ink...way to go, Team Stupid.|
So..I had to seal it with spray...and draw over... it was a massive pain in the arse...and time wise, I'd have been better starting again.
|Smmmmmear! Line work dissolving when i tried under painting it!!|
|Sealed the line work, under painted it all in red/brown, now regretting having even started this!!!|
|Things always get worse before they get better... or something....|
|At this point, I'm praying that Sean Philips will descend from Painters' Valhalla and save this bloody thing for me... help me Obi Wan... you're my only hope...|
|Stay on target.... getting there...maybe...|
|Quit while you're ahead...or losing... ;)|
But it was a nice thing to work on in the evenings when my friend Alysha Nett was visiting!
I finished it off with a purple bandana, to try and unify the red shirt and blue koala (Thannks Sofie...for the sage advice). I then touched up the line work... with a biro and paint...
I might sell this... trying to decide... it's sat for a month on my kitchen table...and I've become oddly fond of this annoying little bugger.
I'll scan it properly tonight and upload!
