My first digital sketch of horse ever

There was a next Digital painting hangout session in Czech language yesterday evening and it was really fun. We had also several viewers which were communication via chat window. Really cool.
I was sketching a horse based on some reference photo. I would say that this was actually the first time I was painting a horse. I have quite a big respect for these animals. :)


Hangout in Czech language

Digital sketch "Ladygun"

Digital sketch of lady with gun created before going to bed tonight... :)
Nothing fancy, photoreference used. I wanted to paint some nice girl with a gun, but it´s not easy to find some useful reference... the face is the only thing which suggest that you are looking at a girl...military costumes are not very sexy...I guess...:)

I was streaming the whole process on my channel - https://www.twitch.tv/ultrajaryn , you can follow and monitor it to see when I´ll be streaming again... :)
There will be also a speedpaint video later...

Picture from hangout "Bubak"

There was a next Digital painting hangout (CZ) session. I've started with nice girl photo study, but it was not very entertaining so I switched into some free doodling work... :) After a few minutes playing with brushes colors and composition ...this idea below appeared...
Nothing fancy, just a concept but it was fun...

The story behind is kind of daemon or ghost warrior is scared of small mouse, the scene is located in some cave or underground place... something like that ... :)

Digital sketch "Armored" + hangout video

This is a result from next Digital painting hangout (CZ) session. It started as a usual photo reference study, but it turned into own loose painting where the reference was used only as an initial baseline.
It's still sketchy but I like to final look. It was definitely fun...

If you like the hangout idea, feel free to join the Facebook group... I'm pretty sure we can handle also other languages than Czech... :)

Digital photo study "Sekerak" + hangout (CZ)

Acrylic sketch "Blue queen"

Acrylic sketch of this weekend. Experimenting with colors and skin tones in my sketchbook and the Blue queen was born... :)

Acrylic painting "Sutry"

This unfinished painting was hanging on my easel a looong time and I had no motivation to finish it.,,,and I was too lazy. I suppose that I´ve lost the initial idea and also passion for the scene disappeared.

Anyway, I really wanted to start something new and I hate to left unfinished work just like that. So this is it. 

Acrylics on 24 x 32 cm cardboard 400g/m2, signed and still need to be varnished...
"Sutry" means something like big rocks...:)

Enjoy :)

Digital painting "China"

I was experimenting a bit with different technique than usually. I saw this somewhere on youtube and it was demonstrated by some guy from China. These smooth colorful portraits are quite typical for these manga Chinese guys... :)
It was just one evening session so it is not very detailed and definitely some space for improvements.
I just wanted to check if I understand and I´m able to replicate...:)

Done with my Huion tablet and CS4

Acrylic painting "Blueface"

I had some free time this weekend so I made this quite small acrylic painting. There was a reference photo used as an inspiration. I really don§t know how exactly is this type of butterfly called, so I´ve created my own name - "Blueface" :)

This was the first session where I has been using the Mastersons Sta-wet palet - which I bought in US and bring it back to Europe ... And my first impression is really good. I like the palet paper, very useful.

Check some of my photos, there will be added also video with the painting progress - as I was recording my work. Still need to process it and share it online on youtube... soon, hopefully

Painted on artistic 24 x 32 cm cardboard 400 g/m2, varnished with glosy varnish and signed

Acrylic abstract painting "Equalizer"

Here comes the biggest traditional painting I made so far...:)
It was reworked several times, I´m still not fully satisfied with some aspects of the result but I´m not able to do it better because of missing skill and experience. Need to learn some ways of color application.
No video and no work in progress this time.

Acrylic colors on 50 x 70 cm stretched canvas
