    Default Johnny Crap "Fun Times" painting process thread.

    After posting a sketch in the Sketches- show em' thread I received a request for a process thread. So here it is.

    Some of the photos are shitty, well most of them, but you still can see how I kinda work. I say kinda because I dont alway work the same way.

    So here we go.

    This time I decided to start by sketching my main idea. I dont always work with a sketch. Sometimes I paint directly on the surface (wood, paper, illustration board...) or i draw directly on the surface with charcoal.

    When I am satisfied with the sketch I usually scan it right away to show off on gigposters.com. Haha.

    This is the final sketch.


    When I am done wasting time reading recipes on Gigposters.com I decide what size the painting will be. Then I open the sketch file in photoshop and print it out in parts to fit the canvas size.

    Then I tape the parts together to be able to transfer it to the canvas. I place the print out on top of the canvas (In this case gessoed birch panel) with a sheet of carbon paper so that I can transfer my drawing while keeping the right proportions of the sketch.

    You can see the print out and the pen lines in this photo.


    Once that's done I can start painting. It is best to do an uderpainting, that way you can better plan how you will add color later. I also find that it add some dept to the painting. I also use Liquin. Yes I heard that It might turn yellow in the long run. Oh well, for now that's how I work.

    I use "burnt umber" oil paint for the underpainting.


    I like to work with cheap dollar store aluminum cooking trays to mix my colors because I suck at cleaning my stuff.


    And here we go, we are adding color to the underpainting. I like to start by the background and keep the fun part, the characters, for the end. It's also easier to work that way for me. In this one I wokrd loosely on the wall and the skull dude. (Bad Pics starting......NOW!)


    More work on the skull dude and I also started working on the bottle that he is holding as well as the arrow...


    More details on his theets.


    Ahhh, working on the lady. I started with the body this time. Usually I stat with the face. Not sure why.


    At first I was going to do a redhead but it didnt work with the color scheme I was working with. I decided that she should dye her hair black. She agreed. I added some details to the frame in the back, some sun spots on the skin too.


    For the bed sheets I had to go with something light to balance with the with the frame in the background and I decided that she would be wearing some of them thick white fishnets too


    More details.


    Skipping to the final because the other photos were too terrible.
    I didnt put any tattoos on her like I planned to do at first. I decided that it would be too busy in that one. I am pretty happy with the end result.


    Here are some close-up scans of the painting. My brush stroke is a little looser than when I was working with arylics. I love oil paint.


    Warning! Giant nipple!




    Work area...with a cool Peter Ferguson original painting.


    Well, that's it. I hope you guys enjoyed.

    thanks Johnny!
    It was really cool see just how you go about it.

    My favorite things in this piece are the reflected light on the skull and the girl and the inviting design. You really get the feeling you sitting on the edge of the bed.

    killer job
