Last week was an amazing week, I turned 18, school was extremely enjoyable(Less stress, More laughs) and I pretty much partied myself to a frenzy. But most importantly I got a BUTTload of drawings done(YAY).
I've recently been outrageously inspired by this awesome artist named Phil Noto. He has such a great sense of style when it comes to this very detailed, but yet simplified realistic drawings with a vintage aesthetic.
Back on Tuesday I went to Home Goods and as always they had some fantastic paintings that were so pleasing that I had to take some sketches of them(luckily this sketch book is small enough for me to bare carrying inside).
Because in Lit class we've finally finished our summer reading essays, we got to chill out and watch this movie called "First Knight" starring Richard Gere("Pretty Woman") and Sean Connery(You should know who he is). So far this movie is pretty good, I've always been enchanted(see what I did there?) with the whole Knights of the Round tales and all the cool ass armor they wore so during the movie I did this sketch based off of King Arthur's armor.
While I was scrambling with ideas for my next assignment in art, I remembered how much I love the "Tree of Life" that I decided to use one of the scenes as a reference Also I've been trying out the whole black bar wide screen thing to give it more of a cinematic feel.
Finally after going to this football game I stayed over a friends house and I started working on this little thing.
I say she is some kind of Shaman women because of the look of her face so I added some smoke behind her to give it the mystic ceremony thing going on.
