The Swirly J Blogs

Hello! My name is Jennifer G., but you can call me Jenny! I am a bit of a nerd and have a huge love for video games, anime, comics, animated films, ect. My passion is creating in a 2D format and telling stories through illustration. I am learning everyday and I plan to keep it that way for the rest of my life! Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog! :)

Sea Empress-Final

Ok, I am officially putting this to rest. I learned quite a bit from this painting. For one, I learned so much about lighting. Where I am now artistically, I don't know what else to do to it. If you have any ideas, let me know and I will do them in the future. :)

What I learned:
1.) Lighting is a mean mistress. I want to understand it very badly so if anyone has any artists I can paint from to learn(prefer masters) let me know.
2.) I still can't make my pictures work. I have to learn how to make them work better. A lot of time wasted fixing the initial sketch. Learning to make a good drawing first is EXTREMELY crucial.
3.) Painting skills. I am acrylic painting and digitally painting at the same time right now. I hope to get better soon.
