A portrait of Blaster, from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Acrylic on 11"x14" canvas, in a gold wooden frame.
It's been years since I got the chance to paint traditionally, let alone on canvas. So when I finally put my name in for the show, I figured it was time to make something different than my usual. And even when I did paint, I never painted people, so getting back into it after all these years was a challenge, but I managed to do this in 8 straight hours.
And for those curious of my process, here's this:
There's a few photos missing in the painting process because I didn't take any when I hated how it was looking (his skin was solid green at one point, thanks payne's gray). Also, the canvas I actually found sometime last year, with a crappy unfinished painting of Converse on it, which I gessoed over for this piece. And yes, because my easel is at home, I held the canvas up on my wall via a newspaper that was stapled to the canvas then taped onto the wall. It held for a few weeks.
