Digital Painting —
A while back now, I took a college Art
with a wunnerful instructor whose
the subject come alive.
If you've looked through other pages here,
you may have already noted that
era "Memento Mori"— which reminded the people of
that day: "Remember, you are mortal" — made
quite an impact on me — and I've created
several pieces with that theme in mind.
In 2019, I sketched the concept for the
digital painting I just finished (above) and named
it Momento Murray — as a humorous twist on
idea — and you can see it here.
Recently, I posted a color study over that old
sketch on an art forum I post on —
and a couple of the
people there suggested I finish it for Halloween.
I'm not really into the holiday myself — and
usually only do Christmas themed artwork — but
decided to get it done in time per that suggestion — but
as is often the case — I think this image still points
to the futility of making only this life our aim — and
call this digitally painted version, 'NEXT!'
This image was digitally painted
using a Wacom Tablet Interface
and Krita— awesome, FREE! computer painting software
