Hello again, Steemians!
It is I, Absolute Ama!

The other day I spent about a day and a half working on the detail of this painting and I wanted to share it with ya! It's called 'IMAGINARY TRANSPORTATION.'


For the past few months, I have been engrossed in dystopic settings. Trying to recreate that grungy rusted metal look has been quite the challenge! I put it off for awhile because creating these things are actually hard for me.



But I think with this painting, I'm actually starting to get the hang of the look!



I think what helped me was that I didn't paint the girl first. It's easy to jump right into an area that is like second nature to you, but I found when I painted the characters first, I'd become impatient with the other areas that required more work, oftentimes cutting the time in half and resulting in a partially completed look. Not this time!

The metal creature took about 8 layers in total! Blue shading, yellow splashes, brown splashes, a whole layer of grey, then building that grey to black. I'm pretty proud of this creature so far and I think I've finally established a decent method towards metal. All that's left is to get more practice under my belt!


So with the excitement of this piece, I spent the other evening sketching out a new concept with another metal creature in the process of being built. Stay tuned for it's completion!!

And with all that said, have a beautiful start to your week! 💕

It was luck that I came across your work on my newsfeed. Thank you for the inspiration and please keep up the good content rolling :)

Thank you! Glad you liked it! 💕

Maid-chan thinks this is quite a good made metal look! Keep up the good work!

Thank you! 💕💕

In close ups, the amount of detail is astonishing. Reminds me of Howl's Moving Castle too

Thank you!! I was originally inspired by Miyazaki's work! Then delve deeper to find some amazing animation artists to help supplement the concept. Still looking for more inspiration in this area!

It was well worth the work of the multiple layers, the creature/vehicle is much more effective because of it. I love his tongue and feet! You female figure is lovely as usual and I like her nonchalant stare sitting on her odd machine in her dystopian world.

Thank you! Yes! The metal pieces ended up looking more three dimensional now. Definitely will be working on my patience to continue progressing in that area 😂

increible y surrealista. me encanta

Muchas gracias 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️
