For the record, I’m a terrible painter. Maybe not really terrible, but mediocre at best. I’m pretty sure my paintings could be the work of a small child. My good friend says they’re folky. Sounds better than what I’ve been saying… Lol.
Anyway, I started with a canvas and a randomly selected colored pencil. I spent about 2 minutes sketching out a roughly dog-shaped form, a few background details, and then set to work.
The first thing I did was paint in the large areas with solid colors.
It took two layers of paint to get even coverage but then I started adding details – in this case, bold outlines.
(sorry. That photo has awful lighting)
It still looks pretty flat and dull, but I slowly added more detail and depth, added bits of other colors, and I ended up with this.
And you know? I’m pretty freaking happy with how it turned out. Sure, it’s not perfect, and a kid could probably do better, but I like it.
I can be reached via email or phone, though I prefer email contact. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone number is (661) 794-8641. Alternately, you can use the form below to email me. I will respond as quickly as possible.
If you’re asking for a cost estimate for a project, please be as specific as possible. I can’t give you an accurate response if I don’t know what you need done. 😉 If you’re not sure what type of project you have, just be as descriptive as possible and explain it as well as you can to me and I will ask if I have further questions before giving you an estimate.
Also, please have some idea of what you are looking for if you feel you are ready to begin a project. There is nothing worse from a designers standpoint than a client who says “I don’t know what I want, but I’m sure I’ll know it when I see it.” That only adds up to much higher charges on your bill because of many hours wasted designing and re-designing, and more headache for me as I have no idea what you might want or like. It just makes everything go smoother and easier for all of us.
