My dear old Nan passed away at the start of the year. We have a lovely photo of her sitting in the garden and I wanted to paint it for my own Ma. I spent quite a while painting this one, I didn't want to look back on it in a few weeks and see all the imperfections staring me in the face. It was created entirely in Procreate. Usually I'll get some pencil lines down first, but skipped that step this time.

Anyways, here's the finished painting and a couple of details. Clicking them will bring up larger sizes.

Alex: A Clockwork Orange

I learned a bit more about the movie and book while making this. I had liked the original sketch I'd done but could never make it work. This turned out to be a tough one actually, but I've learned I really need to up my painting levels. Despite the theatrical language and costume from the scene the image here shows Alex contemplative and sinister, but quick to rebuke his brother Dim 'for being a bastard with no manners.'

I think I just like the simplicity of the eyes, but couldn't replicate it faithfully to paint. It could never work on something with a focal point like that! What was I thinking..?
