Incomplete paintings~

In my free time during Wintersession I was exploring new ways to use acrylic paints, and this method explored underpainting to focus on strong value structure/hierarchies of light. And it really helped to separate value and color, not to mention I love moments when the underpaintings peak from beneath the painting (like the alazarin crimson coming through the viridian greens).

However in a rush to explore this type of painting, I created two pieces that are super generic for me that concept. I think the filenames say alot about the concepts (YELL AND STEAL MAH JEWEL.jpg and my favorite: I GOTTA hahaaaaa xP
Not to mention it continued my pattern of super nebulous environments/figures floating in space/only showing from the torso up.

Heh, I'm a huge fan of atmosphere and such, but I feel like I need alot more clarity in my environments before I continue to ~nebulify~ them.
(Nebulify definitely isn't a word, but it's a Sailor Moon transformation/attack in the making :D~ )

Anyway there's alot of good stuff  for me to learn from these~ but I'm not sure if I'll be completing either of them. I do enjoy the two characters in I GOTTA JAR~! though :P
Also check out my superb anatomical skills in that clavicle of hers. . . x___x


I've been trying to take things easier this spring semester, and I've been failing miserably.
For instance I'm currently on Spring Break, so I decided to stay and RISD and work on my portfolio/get my final internship applications out.

 My newest priority is developing environments, and really having strong figure ground relationships. So I did a few color keys~ each is done in acrylic (probably 3 x 5 or 4 x 6) with a few digital touchups~

These came out alot more successful than I anticipated. I think being on break and not stressing about them really helped me~also I discovered a method to working with acrylics that really makes sense to me and just ~frees me~ and helps me work in a faster~bold and efficient~ manner.
