Serene Deer Painting

So this one has a story behind it. About two years ago on my birthday I decided to go on a mini hike through a nature trail. As I crossed over a bridge, a deer calmly walked by and started drinking from the pond. She didn't seem to mind my presence. I was very surprised to see her, since we were still pretty close to the city. I was in awe as I watched her drink from the pond and then gracefully walk across and disappear into the tall grass. It was definitely a nice treat to be able to witness on my birthday, she totally brought me into the present moment.

I was able to snap some pictures That I used for this painting is done in acrylics on canvas

Creepy character

Hey everyone! So I got some more creepy horror, themed commissions I've been working on. This one is done in Photoshop. Here is the progression of the image from sketch to finish :)

 1. So this part is all about thinking up the composition and making the four armed character look scary and berserk. Mostly just playing around with the shapes and making it an interesting crop.
 2. Adding the hand definitely added to the fierce and creepiness with her long nails. Making her more dangerous and ready to strike. While figuring out the shape of the hair and getting the undertone of the skin.
 3. This part is refining the details and working out the lighting. I know I wanted a lighting from below to add to that unnatural and unsettling feeling. I am also having her looking slightly down to make her look more powerful.
4. Finishing up with some more dramatic lighting and eerie details. Enjoy :)
