Kinny, did we skip from Art Lesson #1 to Lesson #4? The last tutorial was simple enough even I could do it. This latest one calls for art supplies I can't get down at the WalMart.

MadDoug...

Here's the SECRET...
the better the art supplies
the better the work...
better art supplies equals knocking out the glitches
Once you hit a certain level then it's time to UP it a bit
and give back to the work what it has given to you...
just a natural progression...
so.... some of the supplies i will reveal
you may have to special order online or somethin...

Brad!
YOU are the Step-by-Step master!
always learning from YOUR progressions!
an honor being your friend
and growing in talent together!
missin you already..

Clarita!
Gracias!
you are TOO SWEET!
These just document how this specific artist does it..
i hope it shows people how to get started
some rudimentary bits and pieces
to use as a foundation for building upon!
Everyone has different talents-points-of-views-upbringings
strengths and weaknesses...
Not sure what needs to gel with what to get the artist type...
it seems like no specific formula has been deciphered for that!
There are so many different artists of different temperments and times...
BUT!
there are a number of good books about the creative urge and how genius often
borders on subtle forms of madness
"the Fire inside"

or achieving the incredible because of HOW they dealt with their obstacles
"Churchill's black dog and Kafka's mice"

So try those two books,Clarita,as a start
not sure ,offhand,who the authors are
and if they have a Spanish translation
if not,just read Diego Rivera's autobiography
or Dali's "Secret Life of Salvador Dali"
or his "50 Secrets of magic Craftsmanship"
that will show you the strange concoctions of their lives and styles and art
and may help your exploration of the artist within ...

Here's another step-by-step
on how to create a "Cannibal Family"

it all starts with watercolor paper
i use Aquarelle Hot-pressed (which means smooth-no tooth)
Cold-Pressed has that familiar deckled watercolor paper texture..
Just remember HOT like an iron PRESSED...


For this one,
the paper was wetted with water
and then ink was just splashed around
as something took form
I'd brush it around a bit more
bring it to life gesturally
like you were looking at a scene
with squinted eyes....


after it dries
lightly sketch the figures and landscape in to create a faint guide
of the scene and characters


Not wanting to fudge this up
a quick ink study of certain elements is required...
the paw


the maw


and junior


and lest we forget the jungle..





and,of course,the object of the family's concern..
the food bowl


now for the initial outline inked brushstrokes...
i use a Pentel brush pen
as well as a few others


one even has a disposable ink cartridge you can get in packs of 10 or 12
anyways...it's easier than dipping and brushing all day long!
and the Pentel ones take to the paper and bleeds well....
as we shall see later....

Between the lightly penciled form and the sketchbook study
it's time for da initial inking in....
after all the ink's dried
you can lightly erase away all those pencil marks
DO IT NOW
cause once the blending starts
your pencil marks will be trapped under a light glazing of ink...




and DONE with the outlining!


this next step is a mix of things
first off
it's lightly wetting a paintbrush-not too big
and "pulling" the black from the outlines and making them blend into shadows
more water-more darker shadow (and out of control water!)
so always have a piece of towel on hand..
the less water-the slower the road....
and remember....if you expect perfection
forget it!
disguising mistakes is something no one can teach you
it's all about thinking on your feet
and reacting quickly....
and the unsuccessful rescues
are the ones you'll remember the best.....

also grabbed a finepoint sharpie and started to add little details
the feathers in the paw's darts
the weaving of his basket
the leaves in the tree....




it's the blending that puts the piece into its own world
that gives it life and a world....



a little bit of watercolor here and there to color in things
and some white pencil for hilights and eyes and nails and bones


some green watercolor in some leaves
some brown on some wooden stakes or bowls and trees

all those little things develop the black and white drawing...


also some blue in the family's tattoos...



having the ink colored paper to work ONTO
gives you an initial palette to work from
and establishes a mood for the piece
in this case the muggy shade of jungle morning..

and the finished piece..
"the cannibal's family"
ink and sharpie and colored pencil on Watercolor paper


i hope these incoherent babblings
inspire you to
create some art on your own
to discover strange new art techniques
to boldly go where no artist has gone before!

Oh aren't you LUCKY?
Got time to show you how to do a bleachpen/ink drawerin!

same paper as before...


covered the surface with yellow and olive
let it dry
and then....
grabbed one of these....
it has 2 tips
1 is fine
1 is all scrubby and brushy!
that's the end we're using today...


Scrub out a Hei-Tiki,a Manaia,whatever you like,just do it fast and messy!
like this!


here's a closeup to show y'alls HOW messy!


then, after washing off the bleach pen
while the paper is still wet
i grab a piece of black paper
(that comes with every pack of Aquarelle paper)
it's like the protective sheet over the actual paper...
and press it onto the wet page
to tone down the ink of the page AND the bleach a lil
it dulls it down a tad.....


here's a closeup to show you how it not only dusts down the image
but also creates yet another texture of interest to play with!


next step....the Pentel brush pen!
my good friend this week!


This guy is used for thick and thin outlines
the bigger details of the drawing....


here's some close-up areas to take a gander at...



aaaaaaaand DONE!
ready for the next step....
which is creating some shadows
to bring the middle guy forward and the background to go into...
well,the background!




you can see how,by simply wetting a brush with water
how it "picks" up the ink and spreads it
and blends into a delightful shadow!


after all that dries
you will need a finepoint and regular sharpie marker
this will be used for the ULTRA-DETAIL of this piece
it can also be used to crosshatch shadows and texture into a drawing
but this one is going to have enough already!

Here's some detail in the tongue...
giving it an almost eye-like appearance!


it's always good to have a reference book handy
you don't want to wander TOO far from the original intent...

Here's some torso/leg/arm/hand action


and the detail around the eye..


Didn't bother with hi-lights or extra shading
because the viewer would be distracted by the movement of the
decorative elements already in the drawing...
So there you have it......

"Maori"
ink,bleachpen and sharpie on Aquarelle watercolor paper



Have a fine evening!

Kinny, you're an art MONSTER!!! So much more info than my little brain can process.

We ceramicists* know that pencil marks are no problem, they'll burn out at 1800 degrees

*2 years ago I couldn't even spell ceramicists and now I am one (but I'm still not sure I spelled it right )

Great stuff as usual.

I've done a bit of watercolor in the past so without pics I just thought I'd throw in some ideas for textures for anyone who wants to try.

Alot of things can have cool effects on watercolors, just gotta play around and see what they do, experiment some.

tissue- wad up some (snot) tissue papers and splot the wet paint in the sky for clouds (it'll suck some of the water paint off the paper). tight wads will big bigger thick clouds, loose wads will be thinner wispy clouds.

Salt- big grainy salt, sprinkled onto wet paint will make cool star bursts. Let paint dry then brush off the salt. Stars, glitter on shiny things like metal.

knife/paint brush end - once paint is dried you can scrape white lines in (you scrape paint off the paper). Good for highlights.

toothbrush - wet paint on tooth brush, then aim brush at painting and 'stroke' it with your thumb. It'll make cool splatters. Maybe good for gravel...

that's all I can think of for now.

Completely mind-boggling - as a non-drawer I can't even FATHOM this! I LOVE the tutorials because they give me an insight to "building" the paintings but I don't have the ability myself. I would love to see more attempts from others who CAN draw - like MadDogMike's attempt (which was pretty darn good in MY opinion!) However, give me a picture and I'll convert it into a beaded tapestry! Thanks for sharing!
