I finally found some time again to paint and I would like to share some of the results.
One is a little steampunk/ art-deco inspired character based on the sketch I posted a little while ago.
The other one is loosly inspired by a little scene I witnessed on a street that while driving by on a bike.
On ordinary dad in the middle of a group of bikers and tough guys, who is clearly the coolest guy around, even though - or maybe because- he wasn’t trying to be cool at all.
My goal there was to create a painterly and loose piece that tells a cute, littey story.
The challange was to capture the light mood that I had in mind and also finding a composition and color/ light scheme that would tie the composition together and make it read well despite the busy background and number of characters.
