Skull artwork finished

in #art2 years ago


Finished artwork

Really happy to show you my finished artwork. Took me a while but it was worth it. Been working on it on and off and probably around 30 hours in total of real drawing on it. I made this is Procreate on my Apple Ipad pro 12.9.

I started with a sketch of a skull and kept working on it like I usually do. At first I had to try not to go to far so you wont see any skull anymore so I had to be focused on that. Later I started coloring and decided to use purple, blue and yellow as base colors. I know these colors work well together. While coloring I also changed the linework and together it evolves into this result. When I do shading I kind of pick a color more next to it in the color circle and a bit darker. This gives a more interesting effect than just picking a darker one. As you can see best and the yellow parts and the blue going to dark purple.

When I was working on it Procreate only has RGB for now (will change in next update). So I got RGB and a CMYK which is for printing. CMYK is less bright of course as it is ink on paper color range. Because I will be releasing a print I decided to choose the CMYK version to show you and in my opinion even better. In my timelapse video you can see the RGB version. You can see the main difference on the really bright purple.

After I have done a test print I'm thinking to release a limited edition of this artwork. Let me know if you're interested so I can tag you when the print will drop.


Below you can see the (30 sec version) time lapse video:

Here are some screenshots of the process.

Sick! I want t shirts and stickers lol

Thank you! Well maybe I make a shirt of this one :)

Thank you for this post! I like to see the process/progress. Do you have a title for it? I think it has to do with life and the challenges (fishes, arms, snakes grapping) for us. The skull is the end of the story, above there is the living adult (working for life) and on top there is the child, who don't know what is going on, but it is not free, too.
Hehe - that is the story for me.... Greetings from Germany Kadna
