Re: Pelican! : WIP

Thank you all for your kind words.

I've been talking with my family and the "elders" whom think I should try to make a living from my paintings. I'm seriously thinking about it.

My daytime job is wanting me to go on the road again. so if I go this means I can't finish the painting.

Re: Pelican! : WIP

I use photoshop on a computer to grid the reference photo. Haven't found a phone app to do that yet. Basically just create a grid on a layer so that I don't have to keep making the grid.

Even if there was a phone app. I would still do it in photoshop as I use that to manipulate .raw files to get the color right and merge different reference photo's into one. A great tool to compose a composition without wasting money.

Re: Pelican! : WIP

Thanks John, Ptr and Derick.

Im traveling abroad now. I really wanted to put the finishing touches in the pelican but I didnt bring it with me.

Ill be doing a colored pencil peice next. A portrait maybe. I'll have to find a model though.

An exceptional work. A very accomplished rendering. But mostly, a great painting that is wonderful to look at.
