Some Paints.

Posted by Charlie Carlo on Jan. 22, 2014, 11:22 a.m.

So last semester I had my first painting class, and I haven't shared the products of that with anyone yet. I thought oil painting was going to be a lot more involved than it actually is; I hadn't painted with oils before this class, only watercolor, and I was relieved when it was actually easier than watercolor. I have another painting class this semester so I'll probably end up shoving some more paintings at you guys before long.

This one was the first assignment which was just to paint an abstract. I hate abstracts.

This was a "still life in a box" as my instructor called it. It's basically just a bunch of stuff in a box with fabric. I hate drawing real things.

This is a landscape, and it was definitely the most difficult. I can't focus on that many different values and shapes. I have a new found respect for landscape paintings after actually attempting to do one.

In other news, I've been working on Grimgala and hopefully it's finished before too long. You can see the enemies in the neat little banner I made.

That's all for now.

I have so much respect for landscape art that I scrap all attempts at it and leave it to people who actually know what they're doing.

Good paintings. I was waiting to see what you did in that painting class of yours.

Landscapes are a bitch.

Abstracts are fun, though. I think at one point my art teacher called off the abstract unit because all of my submissions were… questionably designed.
