Magic 2 by hibbary Magic 2 by hibbary
A companion piece to my last:

This time I used two colors I cannot stand together--green and red. Though What I really can't stand is bright, saturated green and red. I can handle this :P

Same deal. I used reference, reproduced it freehand, and then just started painting. These uh... aren't very well planned out. They're more like painting experiments.

A few people asked about the materials I used. These are all acrylic (except for a little leftover pencil). I'll take all the leftover paint on my wet-palette, mix it into a desaturated mess, and cover a piece of bristol. I then stare at the paper and pretty much paint whatever idea pops into my head first. The parts of the process or finished painting that work I'll take note of and keep for the next painting.

Also, I'll put up prints of this and the last one when I have a quality photo.

This one is very dynamic and 3-D looking. I really like the color scheme. I believe it intensifies the feline's expression.

I like all these variations on complementary color schemes with the big cats--a lot of times when artists do that you get the "Laker colors" or "Christmas colors" effect using the pure hues, so it's nice to see someone play with variations on the saturation level of those colors. I get what you mean when you say it's a painting experiment, but it's a much more sophisticated way to play with the color combinations.

I've also always hated red and green together but you managed to make it look like those colors belong together. This one is by far my favorite of the series.

These two are awesome! You know I never really had the desire to put one of the DA pictures on my walls (although they've been empty for a year and could use some sprucing up) but with theses two ... well the first thing that popped into my mind was "I want it on my wall!" So I'm really looking forward to the prints!
I can't really tell you why I like them so much, I guess it's because of the unique way the colors interact and form the felines. Like they were stepping out of the picture and coming to life through the paint. It's a really unique concept.
