Please add my facebook page for news, recent informations wip and other stuff :
[e] 13 05 2013 : Reworked on the painting. new scan also. better rendering.

I was extremely lazy with my painting method on this pic, and you know what kinda makes me $h*t about that fact ?!

Well it's probably one or my best acrylic painting ever; and on a small surface !!!

I mean , come on, I'm sure that If I had followed the usual method this pic would have been missed, or, at least, not worthing to be viewed !

--------speaking about painting now. might be boring--------------

Basically, I DIDN'T used the classical method , meaning working with several coats of paintings, over and over. Acrylic are very transparent stuff; modest opacity, so that's why It's not really a good thing to paint directly, with the full colors, directly from your tubes.
Heh. that what I did however :lol:

Once the very first values were applyed
(check here : [link] )
I went for more diluated colors, more using the OIL technic, meaning using glazes.

Since acrylics are platic, you quickly find a big trouble about glazes : it's very liquid; and I ask you the $100000000 question:
what happens when you put water on a platic surface ?!

*Jeopardy theme*

YES!!! the water isn't correclty absorbed, then you can't have a whole clean glaze.

Several tips:
1st/ your glazes must be done with diluated acrylics colors, not watercolors, it WON'T works.
2nd/ if you use glazes at , say; 50 % of your WIP, then you are at a step where your glazes are not extremly diluated, and then you won't find any troubles.

For LAST glazes, the ones that help you giving more saturated hues, or to correct some tones.
2/ it's generally not a method you use with the acrylics. it's typically an OIL stuff.
3/Me having an airbrush, I have no problems, as I can give the pic colors with more or less opacity without too much water (that one of the purpose of the airbrush) :p

LAST TIPS: using a very very very very low opacity YELLOW glaze at the end of your pics (say a color diluated at..... 80%) generally help achieving a more saturated/clean/bright result. Don't do that for pics where action takes place in iced areas however.

------------ END OF PAINTING BLAHBLAH--------------------------

I wanted to paint Elektra with her Saļs , but finally leaved this for my other Elektra painting, which is a very HUGE canvas, this time :lol:
[edit] : done since then; and that's this one :


More @$$ ?

Oh, And since I like to make a parallel with psylocke:


painting on 49x32cm / 12 x 19" acrylics paper.
Also used : acrylic inks; colored pencils, markers.

ELEKTRA is ©Marvel comics
