edited July 2011 in Artist's Corner
Hello folks,
You may know me from G&T's Secret Santa thread - I painted ICO artwork for LewiePs Santee, and a few people have asked me to paint stuff for them, I've agreed to do so, for donations to Oxfam Unwrapped (plus postage and materials).
I've started the first one, for Jam Warrior, ICO again, and decided to post in progress pics. Feedback very welcome, cos I can always improve!

Here's the pencil outline for ICO

Here's the background started

    Another one sent over from the news thread. Absolutely astounding work. The news thread mentioned that you're six months backlogged and not taking any more commissions at the moment. Is that the case?
    Hi, I pm'd you, but to let others know, its not a backlog, its a queue, to help me manage it all; I plan to do 1 per month, otherwise I'll spend all my spare time painting, as opposed to reading PA stuff! (and the odd day at work).

    Also, I'm finding it impossible to load pics of progress onto imageshack - it keeps timing out, anyone have any sugestions? - that aren't complicated as lewiep is back at uni. Thanks folks.

    It's a bit of a roundabout solution, but to avoid any hassle on your part, you could email them to someone like myself and then I could post them for you. But it'd be nice for you if you could post the images along with some text, I'd imagine, so it's not a perfect solution by any means.

    It might just be a temporary problem with Imageshack. Maybe try again later and see if the problem persists.

    Thanks for the offer, its really kind of you. I've tried 5 different image loader thingys with no success - I'm too tired now, so I'm giving up for tonight. I'll try again tomorrow, and if I still can't do it, I'll email the pics to you with text, off to bed now, its far too late to be even attempting stuff this hard (at least for me!)

    Whohoo! I've finally managed to load up an image from my camera
    Spoiler:

    I've no idea why its so big, I'll try another link

    http://aycu40.webshots.com/image/42719/2005644225785805155_rs.jpg

    And a bonus is you get to see a bit of our fireplace.

    I've got a couple of more pics without flash - it distorts the colours a bit - well, I would have if I could find the thingy whatsit to plug my phone into my PC. I'll have to use the proper camera again, this may take some time, so I'll just post this for now and see how long it will take me to upload/host (?) more pics. Lewiep, come home soon, this is hard!

    Hi again, here's a couple from today. hopefully I'll make a better job of loading the images, or at least make them smaller. I know lewiep told me how to do it, but I've forgotten.

    Anyway, this picture is nearly finished, I know there's something missing ...
    maybe I'll remember soon ...

    2002359787335986686_th.jpg

    Same picture, slightly different lighting:

    2002363502685440676_th.jpg

    Hmm, still something missing ...

    wait a minute, its ICO and the girl, silly me, I'd better finish it off, probably tomorrow.

    Jam Warrior, pm me your address and I'll check out postage costs.

    Looks like the SOTC awaits.

    I've gotten the July timeslot, so I'm narrowing down images now. I figured like melatonin, I'd get imput from you folks here.

    Right now, the two images are Okami, though I'm considering something from Zelda as well, though I haven't found something quite as good.

    Here are the two Okami pictures:
    Spoiler:

    and
    Spoiler:

    Right now I'm leaning towards the first one, though it's obviously a very complicated painting, and I don't want to take advantage of LewieP's Mum's generosity here.

    I'm also considering taking some Zelda sample images and just letting her do whatever she wants with them to suprise me.

    The images in the spoilers aren't showing up for me, Bionic. Maybe it's just me though.

    Personally I think a painting from Wind Waker would be much better. Brighter and pleasing to the eye.

    Thank you! Without sounding too soft, you guys are making me cry with your appreciation of my pics, you certainly know how to make someone feel valued.

    On request restrictions, I won't paint gory, nasty, violent or exploitative pics, only pretty ones. I'm a wimp, I shut my eyes through Spiderman, I was scared, and missed most of Lord of the Rings 2, I was so scared. Lewiep had to hold my hand through both, and I have a cushion to hide behind when I watch Dr Who, and even then get very stressed. I had to stop watching X Files cos I had bad dreams!

    The only other limits are my skills and time - I aim to do 1 pic per month, list has reached July so far, if I can do more, I will, but I have to go to work as well. Also, I'm going to Glasto in June, volunteering for Oxfam, so am aiming to get June's pic done early.

    I expect to start SOTC next week for Centipeed

    Pick something that doesn't already look like a painting, will yah. I'm curious about an artist's interpretation of something else. This your chance to get a portray of Zelda. :P

    I'll be posting this off to him some time this week, and will be starting on SOTC for Centipeed next week.

    Just to remind you about costs, this came to just under £10 to make, but I don't yet know postage/packing costs. I'll post that price as soon as I have it, so you will be able to work out postage for yourselves. It weight about 2 1/2 pounds.

    Wow. Actually being the focal point of something like this and not just being a spectator is pretty awesome. I understand the excitement other people feel in moments like these, now. I'm firmly among the group of people who have said "I can wait to see how it turns out" at one point or another.

    Well, Jam Warrior's pic is now on its way, and because there's some stupid football match on, I've had some time to myself this afternoon, so I've started Centipeed's SOTC earlier than I expected.

    I tried to upload the pencil drawing first, but it didn't show up very well, so what you've got is:-

    The sky done:-
    2005811642816622806_th.jpg

    The start of the buildings on the left and the sun ray shining over the colossus's legs:-

    more of the buildings done and the corner where the horse and rider are:-
    2005868435601578553_th.jpg

    I've also done some close-ups of various bits:-

    The buildings:-

    and the Collossus's hand:-

    I might get some more done tomorrow, as apparently Man U are playing in some competition at 2:00 pm, yawn ...

    This is a direct link to the image you posted:

    http://ps2media.ign.com/ps2/image/article/550/550778/wanda-and-colossus-20040924011135242.jpg

    If that's what you were having trouble with?

    Here's a direct link to the image gallery on the page that Bionic Monkey just linked to:

    http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-01-49-en-70-1i22.html

    It'll let you look at different angles of the model so that you can see where hair is meant to be and stuff. It's a dark colossus anyway, although looking back at the picture I sent you as reference, it is a little too dark for painting from because it's hard to make out detail and the like.

    These three might also help as reference images:

    Brill, thanks. I've printed a couple out, and messed about with the brightness and contrast a bit, that's helped too - didn't want you to have a dark blob in the centre of your picture.

    Oh wow! It's arrived and it looks even better in the flesh (in the canvas?). Pictures to come when it is hung properly.

    A truly classy item for my walls, many, many thanks Mrs P. You are a true talent.

    In the true spirit of barter I have swapped the painting for 2 goats. (Ignore third goat in the picture, it's a mirage). May they go on to have long happy goaty lives.
