Girl Conjuring Monster - Well hello! Lol
In some ways, this is probably a perfect early post to my blog with an early piece of work. Considering that years later I would find myself body painting and flourishing with body painting. I’ll be getting more into that in another post.
Anyways, I was playing around with painting and airbrushing. I got inspired by another artist I admired growing up and decided to paint this. I was thinking in terms of having it made into stickers someday.
It’s painted in acrylic paints, Createx original line of paints, I believe it was as it’s what I started using for the most part when I first started airbrushing, known as their textile paint.
I also painted by hand, with fine brushes that is. At the time I had and Iwata Eclipse with a 0.5 tip, nozzle and needle get-up. I found adding the finest of details were best to paint brush in. I would often come back over and airbrush in on the fine detail which were more bold and opaque. The airbrush helps to soften the sharp contrast a bit; that edginess that I just didn’t care for myself in my work. Often the edges aren’t softened, it looks like was stenciled. Well anyways, this one I wasn’t worried about being a little bold.
The airbrush is a great tool for splatter graining effects like on the stone floor. The photo doesn’t do this justice and was photographed using a 35mm camera, as all my work was back then. Had not cost so much to develop pictures I would of taken a lot more. Lol
If I get a request or if getting feeling froggy I may produce some of these as stickers. Maybe come up with some cool or funny title to add to it. I did make several copies that I still believe I have on hand somewhere. Copies same size as original I think. And it’s not but around 5 inches all in all.
Ha! I could see it as an album cover too!
