This is a slightly different painting than usual insofar as this was a gift! The first time I watched the livestream of one of my now-favourite casters, he was playing this game. I guess I got hooked on it, and it became something of a running joke for me to suggest he play it every time he was looking for something else to do. I painted this for him in secret, so the first time he unwrapped it he had no idea what to expect!

There actually exists a video of him unveiling the painting, which I will embed under the cut. Read more... )

I think he was pleased with it! I really had a lot of fun painting it, especially as it was a silly break from more serious stuff I was painting at the time.

I have a few real-life entries to make which I will get around to hopefully later on! For now have some other pics of the Mario painting.

Extra pics! )

Another slightly older one, this is my Shadow of the Colossus painting! This was the third painting I started, back in May, and the biggest one I'd done at the time. I wasn't really sure if I wanted to sell this one or not... I may, at some point, as I keep improving by leaps and bounds every time I do a painting. What I think was my best work last month suddenly isn't any more... Initially I wanted to put this on my wall, but now I'm thinking I want to put my Skyrim painting on the wall instead!

In any case, I am thinking of doing a counterpart to this painting at some point in the future. This shows the more lighthearted side of the game; the exploration, the world at large. I'll probably do a close-up, darker painting of Wander climbing on one of the colossi at some point. Sort of tempted to put this up in my Etsy store.. But no, I will resist. For now.

Since [personal profile] aeslis was talking about seeing progress shots, I do actually have a bunch for this painting! I also paint live online on my streaming channel where people can come and watch me working on things, so maybe one day I'll post a link here before I do a session. It's fun to chat with people while painting, it keeps me focused and from getting bored and distracted and wandering off.

I know I should probably start posting art oldest-first, but seeing as I just finished this painting yesterday I thought I'd start here!

Since I came back to England in May I've been painting on canvas. This is actually one of the earlier ones I started (I think the second one) and as a result I don't like it as much... It's hard to believe how much I've learned in the few months since I began. When I came back to it I realised I could have done a lot better than I have with this, but I re-worked some of it - repainting the trees almost entirely - and I am pleased with where it's ended up at the very least.

I pick video game paintings based on the aesthetic of the game rather than how much I like the game in question. I have multiple copies of Sword & Sworcery but have yet to put much time into it! I really should remedy that. Luckily for me, my housemate in London loves this game and already laid claim to this before I finished it, so it always had a place to go once it was finished and was guaranteed to make me a little bit of cash. Which is always good!

Currently I'm working on three unfinished paintings (Skyrim, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Bastion) but I keep starting new ones. I'm terrible. Maybe tomorrow I'll post up one of the other finished ones. :)
