Today we've got a couple paintings to post. One is a commission painting I did for some good friends, the other is another #inktober entry. I love doing these armor studies. I treated myself to a trip to the art store to get some non waterproof ink and some white acrylic ink. I was using a white pen for the highlights in these armor studies but it just isn't good for blending out. I needed something that behaved more like the ink I was painting with. But I still use the white ink pen for the sharp, solid highlights. You can see the difference between the two armor studies.
The monster/hamster painting was commissioned from my friend Kevin to give to his wife as a gift. It illustrates a personal story of theirs. It was an honor for me that I got to tell their story with my creations.
Keeping this post short today! I gotta get ready for my birthday dinner at my favorite sushi place with the most amazing woman in the world - my lovey.
