A trompe l'oeil painting from two years ago I left unfinished...found the picture right now, browsing through old photos in my phone. Should have really finished it, but mid-process I realized the idea was pretty stupid 🤣 there would have been some buildings and figures inside the tablet...all is painted by the way. Oil on panel. I don't even remember the dimensions. Probably 60×80 cm
Recorded this cover just for fun. Played every instrument myself, besides the drums, which were computer programmed.
Video obviously shot in playback, original song obviously by Axwell and Ingrosso.
Hope you like it!
Having fun writing some guitar riffs today. Probably not very original sounding but who cares :D hopefully it will turn into a full song.
The video was shot in playback, since I recorded multiple guitars and also the bass. The drums are computer programmed.
Throwback to two days ago when I was in Milan for an art competition. Didn't win any prize but I had a lot of fun visiting Milan for the first time in my life. This is Galleria del Corso, where only prestigious shops are located. Had a lot of fun looking at all the things I can't afford haha. Me on the right and my cousin's on the left.
Progress on the statuette. Compare it with the last picture of it and you'll understand how I work pretty much all the time. It's basically progressively refining the forms with every pass.
I'm refining the shapes of the statuette right now. Here you can see how I use van dyke brown as a background color in order to paint the negative shapes in. It's amazing how far more accurate it becomes when I shift my focus to negative shapes after I blocked in the positive ones.
Further work. Can you tell the difference from the previous pic? It's funny how progress slows down a bit after you lay in the big shapes!
Tip: Always focus on the negative shapes.
Slowly getting closer.
I enjoy working this way. I'm basically just progressively painting more accurate shapes without much care about anything else. Feels a lot like sculpting. Then I'll sand it and repaint it with more attention to color, value and paint application.
Lol I hope I'm not spamming too much with these wip shots.
Started the underpainting. I'm using Asphaltum from Talens Rembrandt this time. Nothing to do with the old unstable pigment: it's a modern beautiful and lightfast shade! And no, I'm not endorsed by them haha :D
