Paint Process

I took pictures! Every picture signifies a rest point. Hope you like!




Remember! I'm an amateur, my method is pretty sloppy, I end up fixing a lot of mistakes in the last few steps. By the way, this is based off a dreampet, he's a fox tourist!

Update!!!
Here's some pics of my supplies.

why the pngs? Use jpegs, they're much lighter.

Anyway, cool post. So what if you think your method is sloppy? The result sure isn't, and that's what matters, right?

Png's look better- at least on my screen they do. They don't look good on yours?

Max Ward said...

yes yes yes yes yes! thanks for doing this!

Gabriel said...

yes, pngs will look better because their compression is lossless. But the filesize is lot bigger. Jpegs load faster. The quality won't be the same, but it's acceptable, you just need to take care when you save to not push it too far. If you use photoshop you are able to see it as you save the file.

What do you use to paint? Watercolors? Have you ever tried painting with acrylics? You can dillute them a lot and they kinda behave like watercolor, except that they dry a lot faster. That makes it almost impossible to blend, but it's still cool!

Hey Kalie! how are you? I enjoy much reading your advances in your different paintings and I like your posts about your different methods to paint and to draw. But always I have had doubts about the materials that you use (and I want to know, please), the types of pencils, sponges, etc…is possible a photo? (you remember your post about Art Lozzi's style or what type of pencil is the one that you occupy in “The Streets Are Filled With Ice Cream! ”) Also I am amateur, and is very probable that your suggestions can serve to him to more as somebody…. Greetings from the ass of the world! Thanks!
(sorry my english..uff!)

cute foxy :D

Jorge Garrido said...

MOO.

Kalzone sure can paint.

Lee said...

Kali, it's wonderful to see your process!

I'm curious to learn why you think your method is sloppy. Looks fantastic from here!

Heyyy this was fun to see. Nice painting!

I can't concentrate to make a confident line with a brush. The only way for me to make a nice line is to distract myself with thoughts of my cat or the women who have ripped my heart out. Don't be afraid to make a confident line! Let it flow out of your brush.

Great stuff! Keep it up! I like your paintings. =]

David Germain said...

What? You go through a painting process? You don't use witch-craft or voodoo magic? WoW! I see you in a whole new light now.

That is a nice painting. I like the texture you put on the fox in the final rendering.

Katie said...

YAY! Beautiful, Kali!

Hammerson said...

Looks really nice, Kali! I love the colors and texture you used on fox, and it's cool to see your paint process and technique step by step. I'm waiting for the third Buster.

BTW, great caricatures in your previous post, especially Jorge :-) In fact, it inspired me to try my own version of Jorge today. I used only his avatar picture, so I'm not sure how accurate the drawing is... I took (too) many artistic liberties with it. Check it out

david gemmill said...

really cool. thanks for posting this process. it makes me want to paint, now that i kind of have a better idea of paiting, even though i am horrible at painting and everything i paint looks really bad.

keep up the great paintery paintastic work.

Annie said...

Yay! I love your blog. You totally inspired me to buy some liquid watercolors tonight!

Gabriel said...

thanks for the update. The result is enough for the rest of the world, but i feel us artists (heh, i feel so conceited by including myself in) gain a lot from peeking behind the scenes.

Chloe Cumming said...

Nice painting process, sunshiney and gay (in the old fashioned sense which I've decided to try and use)

Also nice fresh sunshiney process bloggery, and cute nail polish and all.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

I love to see sequential photographs like this! Thanks for putting them up!
