gypsy handjob

blog titles never really what it seems.

i've finished my Gypsy Hand Job (art pieces, named after a silly accident in Bolivia, resulting in the temporary pause of my normal activities as a photographer, that were made by hand rather than camera).

it's a beaut.
i really love it. almost enough to not sell it.
but my wall space is limited.

this one took me almost a month to do.

 
blue spray paint on unprimed MDF. gradient, subtle cross, and paint drip. // oh look! it's me.

tadaa! dry. and ready to get worked on

 
initial lines, then Ace card detail, in marker. // starting on hair detailing from the bottom left corner
Ace card: middle spade is detailed with hearts, cubs, and diamonds within it.

 
 second day.. getting a lot done // and close up shot - paint gloss finish makes it hard to see my marker lines, and photograph

 
 right side done in another (3rd) day // close up shot

finally get a mask, after throat blockage and headaches from the markers. i drew whiskers on 'em. duh.

 
Sharpies marker for the spray painted parts // hair work creeping up... 4th day

  
details with ink, hair. 5th day.

detailed eyes and face. 6th day

 
 after a long week and a half of not knowing how to finish off the piece... i decided to paint the ravens with acrylic for a subtle, yet interest-grabbing look. and i love it.
