Change in the Air by ChellytheBean
Change in the Air
This is yet another remake of an old painting, one that I've actually remade twice now!

Original (May 15th 2013):
Redo: (May 23rd 2013):

I wanted to make a fall painting. I've always loved the sketch for this drawing, and when I compared the sketch to the old painting... It didn't do it justice.

Line Reference:…
Luna Process (Old) by ChellytheBean
Luna Process (Old)
Found this old process laying around. I know a lot of people like these/find them useful so I'm posting it. No idea why I didn't before.

Here is a brief walkthrough of the photos:

Picture 1: A sketch of the painting. Included are some of the finer details, such as the whiskers and the general fur direction/length. This saves a lot of time later!

2: Establishing background colours and lighting. I've found it helpful to start with at least a base colour for the background.

3: Basic shape and dimension of the subject. Since this is a cat, and one with medium length fur at that, I didn't put a lot of effort into the blending and dimension here because it will be covered with the fur layers I'll add in the next photos. If this were a human or an animal with less dense fur, this step would be a little more detailed. Like I said though, I'll be covering this up with fur so it's not a big deal!

4: Base fur. For this I used a textured brush to help define the fur. I mostly defined the dark hairs for now, changing brush size and the length of my strokes depending on the area- the face will have shorter, denser hairs then the chest.

5: With a smaller brush I add in finer hairs. More mid tones for now. No dense shadows or overwhelming highlights yet. I add the eye, nose and lips. I like to do this early on. I just feel like the painting goes better if I do, maybe that's just me!

6: I finish with the finer hairs. Now I add the highlights around the cat's face and edges of her body. You can see my palette in the right hand corner as well. I also start work on those pesky ear hairs!

7: The finished painting. I know this is a bit of a jump, but sometimes I forget to take WIPs as I go XD

Finished Painting:
I'll have my revenge- Blackthorn Morgana LOL by ChellytheBean
I'll have my revenge- Blackthorn Morgana LOL

A painting of Morgana using the blackthorn skin from the MOBA game League of Legends.

Old sketch I had laying around... I don't play LOL anymore, but the characters are still cool. Her hair is a bit more... pink than intended but whatever. 

Tried a lot of different techniques. I think it turned out well.

A lot of improvement I think. Still a lot more to improve on though.

New Happiness~ War Horse- Topthorn + Joey by ChellytheBean
New Happiness~ War Horse- Topthorn + Joey

This is an update of an older painting from March 2013. You can view the old version here:

The two main horses from the movie Warhorse. Joey and Topthorn's friendship was my favourite part of the film. I found their struggles very hard to watch, but they went through most of it together. 

As for the painting. It didn't turn out exactly how I imagined, and I wouldn't describe it as perfect (nor would I ever lol). I stopped working on this midway, got distracted by other projects and just came back to it. It was an odd way to paint it XD Overall, the original honestly became one of my most hated paintings. I disliked everything about it, so much so that I believe I removed it from my main gallery- something I don't often do XD

So it really really needed an update. Hope you guys like it. Oddly enough, the old one has gotten several favourites recently for unknown reasons XD

- i'll add this later. I will have to dig the original references up. When I came back to it, I didn't use any references :P
Hey everyone :) Last night I decided to compile a timeline of my art, from my first paintings to my most recent. I think I have made good progress. A lot of the earlier paintings aren't even posted here on DA, haha.

You can view the slideshow here: 

Thanks for watching guys :) I really appreciate all of your comments!
