Work in progress shots. The final piece looks considerably different to the original sketch.

A stylised, characterised version of King Louis XIV (who was given the name “The Sun King”). He had the longest reign as a monarch in Western Europe (75 years)! Anyway, I had a go at painting him as I want to include him in a comic I am planning. I won’t say too much about it just yet, but its going to be set in historical France. I wanted to give this image a classic feel to it and tried to imitate baroque style paintings (classic painting always inspire me in some way ^_^).

I’ve decided to go ahead and plan out my comics. I’ve had so many ideas in my head for a very long time so I’m going to try my best to bring them out to fruition (I really hope I do u_u).

I wanted to experiment and compare a watercoloured, “young and happy” portrait to the digital “serious and more mature” version I did previously. I actually completed this one before the digital one (I started this one shortly after I begun the other). Traditional mediums such as watercolours allow little room for mistakes (unlike digital art) so I was cautious about how I applied the colours (I had to be very delicate with it or I’d ruin the whole thing). It has been a very long time since I last touched my watercolours so this was refreshing to work on :).

A digital painting of Keanu Reeves I did recently. Yep, I actually worked up the nerve to attempt painting a portrait directly on Photoshop. I was going to give up before even getting halfway through but I told myself not to (I think I did pretty good overall :))! I think I’ll try painting more like this in future.
