The Sleepy Sins of Suzy Spreadwell Print no. 3: A Wanton Lust for Burning Angels
First off: major update to Suzy's site! I've added a page for the paintings, as well as one for all the sketches! Including some rather dirty ones. Mature reading only.
Another one of these painting/ink things done, no digital except the lettering. (Last one here) These are actually the first pieces I've ever done like this. The closest I got was when I got my first drawing table from my dad when I was a teen, and tried to use colored inks with drawings I soon ruined, because Higgins turned out to be not very waterproof india. (never believe their lies about their tea of an ink) It didn't work out and I gave up. I have to say, this time I actually have fun doing it.
Anyway, this took me a week, and the time just went like vapor. When you just use ink, you're used to a certain system, to a certain efficiency. Painting doesn't seem to be so orderly at all. Paint, apparently, just eats up time for all kinds of reasons--it has to dry, you have to keep fixing things; I never understood why painters worked standing at easels, unlike cartoonists who are happy to sit our lazy asses in a chair at a nicely tilted table. I think one reason now is to keep the goddamn side of your hand from smudging the damn thing so you have to keep going back and fixing it.
So here's the thing, also available as a print or poster in many sizes at Deviantart:
11 x 14 on Crescent board
Aquarelle, gouache, graphite, charcoal,
bronze Sharpie, chalk, and india ink
More probably soon.
