A Little More Bedroom Scene

16 Jan

Here’s what I did since my last post…added curtains, a rifle and a nightstand (with lamp). I also started working on some of the character actions. I know that the perspective is pretty wonky (especially with the old lady in the bed) I might fix that if I have time. But this image will be in the video for less than a second so it’s low priority.

The Bedroom Scene

16 Jan

Here is another background for the video. I still need to add a couple details. I want to put in a rifle, curtains and a side table. I also need to be able to make the woman jump out of bed, so the blanket needs to fold over. I also think at some point during this verse Kip is going to stick his head up in the window to sing. I might have John (the guy in bed) dreaming about a grey goose.

Ornaglyphs = Magic and Love

Recently I was commissioned to create this painting that a client ordered as a gift for her beau. She asked me to do whatever I wanted as long as it took place in the restaurant that she sent me photo of. Her boyfriend owns this restaurant in Europe. I’m being vague because he hasn’t received the painting yet (but she gave me permission to post it). I have never been asked to do a setting in one of my paintings so this was a challenge but I am very happy with how it came out.

When I sent my client a photo of the painting she sent me a couple emails that made me super happy. She told me how she met her boyfriend and that the painting eerily depicts it. This is an excerpt from one of the emails she sent me:

One more thing, and then I’ll stop gushing. The night I met M. — I was a customer(!) and he was working front of house (which he almost NEVER does, he’s always in the kitchen) — I stayed at the restaurant for hours. I even helped him close, and we sat alone in the restaurant talking until very, very late at night. The two lovebirds in the painting (the way they’re looking at each other!) — I’ve decided they’re M. and I. Well, those lovebirds are not only sitting at the same table that M. and I sat at, but they’re in the exact same PLACES. It makes me smile.

The reason this is so cool to me is because I work very spontaneously. Basically I sketched out the scene then added the characters in afterward before I painted it. There was no planning involved, no thumbnails and no consultations between my client and I.
