Feed Me…. In Colour!

I liked the first version so much I re-draw it and slapped some colour on it. I did not expect the yellow ink to be so neon, but here is looks amazing, and I did a great job with blending the orange shading.
I’m finally getting the hang of using these inks, although I’d prefer they cam with droppers, and didn’t give off such a strong unpleasant smell. Ah well, I guess I can’t have everything hahah.

More pie… In Colour!

Another revisit to my favourite cherry pie slice. This time however I used India Inks instead of watercolour.
I have to admit, inks definitely have a lot more vividly bright colour to them even after drying. And I do like the outlines on this.
The only downside to the India Inks I used is that when dry, they dry glossy, but a few spritzes of matte medium toned it down significantly.

Phone Cases

So I received some phone cases I bought (off of ebay) for my Galaxy Note 3. My old glitter cases were boring and added a lot of unnecessary bulk to my already rather large phone. So I picked up a couple of plain ones. I decided to paint them since I didn’t want them to be too plain. Above are 2 of the finished cases. I’m personally in love with the palm leaves one, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The pineapples are great too but I feel like the leaves have much more dimension than the pineapple portion.

I guess I’m just really good at painting leaves.

I sanded the cases and applied a matte medium as a base before painting them to really help the acrylic paint adhere, and then topped it off with a clear acrylic spray to seal everything.

Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.
