My last post showed the Spray Paint art of Ryan Thomas from a local event I attended recently. I was so impressed with the techniques that I decided to try it for myself.
I can’t say that I’ve been completely successful, but I’ve learned new things with each of the five paintings I’ve done so far. I don’t think they’re terrible either - let me know what you think.
This was my first one - it looks very 1950’s scifi illustration-ish to me. I still have a LOT to learn!
This is my second one (and suffers a bit from glossy reflections). I’m finding the spraying of the shiny spot on the planets particularly difficult to pull off!
Attempt #3: (again with reflections). I’m using too many stars, and my atmosphere on the one planet needs work. I should be sticking with the simple stuff, but I can’t stand the idea of doing NOTHING new over and over - hence the about-to-colide, massive meteor.
This is #4, and I’m starting to learn a lot of the basics. I really like the dark fringe at the top of the green planet, and the shiny spots are looking better. I don’t really like the new planet technique I used for the texture on the green planet.
5th and last one (so far). Too many stars again, and I don’t like the effects of any of the planets - again, I keep trying new stuff, and each time I learn something, so not a total loss. I do kinda like the orange planet, actually.
That’s all for now. Don’t worry, I don’t plan on turning into a talk-about-me blog, it just happened that this was relavent (and caused by) the previous post so I thought it might make sense. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the topic.
