Fathers Day, Birthdays, Christmas….A piece of art commissioned makes for a special gift for a loved one or friend. Engagement, wedding or birth of a new baby….no gift could be sweeter than a commissioned portrait.
My artwork is a combination of traditional skills & new age technology, contemporary & nostalgic with a twist & the opportunity to create something truly special & unique.
Call, email, or fill out contact form to discuss options & ideas…
It’s not to early to order for Christmas, the more time I have the better, I can only take a certain no to ensure you receive your artwork in time.
I have various pieces available as prints, & will be adding some beautiful bags, scarves & clothing in my shop next week….Follow me to receive notifications of this & other exciting news!
Check out previous posts for dates of
Wacom ANZ & Just Another Agency’s ‘The Next Level Exhibition’ showing in Auckland, Melbourne & Sydney. Featuring extraordinary Digital Art, created by 56 chosen local & international artists including myself. This promises to be a really great event, with opening nights at each location, combining music, art & opportunity to meet artists & other industry people…Plus prints of artwork & The Next Level Publication, will be available to purchase at exhibitions & online.
Just finished this & is available for purchase, painted completely by hand in Corel Painter 2017 on my Wacom Cintiq. This took me about 2 weeks to paint, many hours re assessing & fixing issues. I’m really happy with the finished piece. If your interested in purchasing her, contact me directly & there will only ever be the 1 produced, this is the original. There’s gold foil through her hair which doesn’t show well in jpg, view on large screen to appreciate the textures through. ©LionArtStudio
Sculpting in Painter 2017
As you guys know, I’m a firm believer in learning & studying regardless of how experienced you are. I’m currently doing form studies, particularly the human form (it’s always been the subject that I find most challenging) in between working on Fabulous Ferdi. Sculpting is the method from which we really are able to build form, so I’m working totally line & sketch free…Big brushes zoomed out with greyscale, no details (hair, clothes, Jewell’s etc) This forces me to use edges, these show the change in facial planes & provide contrast without the need of high contrasting values. I will paint this woman/girl over & over, the aim is to work on previous versions issues & see the progress from repeated study of same subject. While doing this I’ve begun developing a set of sculpting brushes for Painter 2017, however most will work with previous versions. They will be a set for both concept & portrait artists alike, tailored to produce clean edges & a couple of blenders to soften where smoother gradiation is needed. They & other sets will be available for purchase in a few months, once I’ve upgraded my site with a shop. Happy Sculpting! ☺️Day 1 – Form study challenge
Explore, challenge, grow…..This is what I try to achieve with each piece I paint. Exploring new styles, tools, subjects….Challenging myself with composition, lighting, textures & subject matter, you cannot Grow without doing so. Most artists want to become better, & their work to evolve…Even those who create as a hobby, the satisfaction of achievement has no boundary! I’m still finding my voice as an artist, & have only been painting proffesionally the past year…(I worked as a graphic designer before I became ill a number of years ago & had to stop working.) I studied many subjects at Melbourne School of art, but graphics was the proffesion that provided instant income…& I had a child to provide for. This journey of my little sailor searching for the magic cherry blossom, comes from my journey…Where is my cherry blossom…Only time & hard work will tell. To my young & new artists, that follow me….Challenge yourself to draw/paint what you see, a 5min sketch can teach you so much…Dont get disheartened/frustrated…It takes time & practise, even the most naturally gifted artists need to learn about values, perspective etc. Most of all, enjoy the experience of learning…Be proud when you achieve something new. There’s lots of resources on the internet to learn to draw/paint from…YouTube tutorials, process sheets & tools like colour charts, & 3d models. It doesn’t matter what medium you are working in the basics are the same, value, form, perspective, lighting….Basics that are the foundation of every great piece of art. If your serious, & hope to work in the industry…Find artists whose work you admire & are offering courses, preferably those who have the experience & expertise behind them, with good reviews on their classes….You don’t want to learn bad habits from an artist who doesn’t know the fundamentals. So on this note, go forth & practise, study, have fun & if your using my brushes…Show me, I love to see your work! Soon I will be adding a feature page & showing off a piece of your work each month.
