Acrylic painting walkthrough by griffsnuff Acrylic painting walkthrough by griffsnuff
Just a simple walkthrough, I added parts that I saved. I do really paint the same way traditionally as I do digitally. xD theres not much diffrence actually.Only traditonally i have to make the colors myself, and water out the paint like if I were using opacity pressure in photoshop haha. Im used to painting on one layer anyway so it doesnt matter if I dont have layers traditionally xD

I use cheap acrylics which you buy in huge tubes, saves money xD. I dont like the small ones they stink and die fast. I think i used 3 brushes on this piece, one big, one medium and one small for details. big one being flat, and two being round.

Ignore typos if they are there xD

8D hope it helps somehow

-----

Finished piece :D

Is the material where you painted masonite? If so, do you need to prepare it in some way?

xD omg nooooo it doesnt even look like wood. Its rock, or a slate to be excact. Masonite is not this shiny or reflective

Ekstremt nyttig! Dette skal jeg prøve ut neste gang jeg maler noe. Fiffig å lage en digital kladd først. Takk for tutorialen! : D

Forresten, kjører du malingen fra Clas Ohlson, eller har du slike store krukkeliknende tubeflasker?
Reply
:icongriffsnuff:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
hehe ja kjøper fra clas ohlson! de har den beste akvarellmalinga, de store tubene. Kjøpte noe fra en slik artbutikk tidligere og malingen er helt ekkel nå Dx varer ikke I det heletatt. Dessuten er jo clausesausebutikken billigere :D

Sannhet! Men jeg har funnet ut at jeg ikke liker CO-malinga, den flyter utover og jeg får den aldri til å dekke! : / Jeg tror det neste jeg prøver blir slike store beholdere fra enten Pebeo eller System3. Min hvite CO-tube var helt tett av halvtørr maling, men det er nok mer fordi jeg ikke bruker akryl så ofte... Du får sikkert ikke det problemet, siden du bruker maling mer frekvent. o:

should you let it dry before adding details?

griffsnuff Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2013
Acrylic paint dries very fast so xD but yes I would wait. unless you want to blend it into the background colors.

Amazing process! The colors are delicious and the movement of the owl about to land is insanely well rendered. Acrylic doesn't blend as nicely as oils (IMO), but you totally rocked them paints.

Great tutorial. I haven't painted very much, but you bring up a great point with pre-planning the color scheme. What a great tip! I have always wondered how artists are able to insert differing colors, and that would make sense.

Do you seal these after you paint them? Or are you not worried about the paint coming off?
Reply
:icongriffsnuff:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
xD acryl is a tough paint, it can handle most things unless you paint it on plastic.

I once painted it on leather, and I was afraid it would be ruined, but mom uses that leather jacket when shes around on her biker meetings in rain and wind and its still just as nice.

So Im not afraid that it will come of, and you do not need to seal it with anything.

Hmmm... You know, I never considered doing a digital version of a piece to get me started rather than jumping right in. I may have to try that method. Thanks so much for sharing!

I'll bet. The only downfall (least for me) would be that the pieces history wouldn't be showing. But I have to really respect your style. It's very beautiful ^^
