Beholding Girl Digipaint 2020

So this is a 2020 digital edit (using GIMP software) of my original “Beholding Girl” hand illustrated ACEO card drawn in 2012.

I wanted to keep the original unskilled marker pen scribbles but… kind of apply a painterly (is that a word?) smudge-n-shade to everything as well as try to make the foreground, middle ground and background separate out from each other some… and maybe pop a little bit.

I also took the previously light aqua-ish blue sky and put a sunset-ish color to it instead using a gradient underneath a translucentified (that’s a word I made up just now) edit of the original sky… so like it looks kinda’ natural-ish and not just a quick and lazy filter.

So yeah, with my re-do’s on my originals, I am not going for lazy filter, these are really brand new pieces in their own right (at least I think so).

Abstract #2

Abstract #2 ©2011 Jeffrey Boyd Garrison

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Abstract #2” was completed in January 2020 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

Like it’s sibling completed at the same time, this was mostly an exercise in frustration. This sort of symbolizes the idea of starting out searching for inspiration and merely ending up stuck in a mess… but that’s just MY interpretation.

Maybe someone else will get entirely different vibes from this?

Also, this piece now has a caption compliments of Puffin3916 on Discord):

“The obulus eyed the planet with menace. It rubbed its green tentacles together in murderous intent; it was feeding time…” – @Puffin

I don’t know what an obulus is, but I’m quite sure it is made up of the essence of nightmares.

Abstract

Abstract ©2020 Jeffrey Boyd Garrison

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Abstract” was completed in January 2020 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

I started this and it’s companian (Abstract #2) while sitting at Shari’s Restaurant having coffee (the one on Division near Franklin Park in Spokane) and then finished them at home days later. The energy at Shari’s when I began them was pretty negative and I channeled some of that inadvertently into these pieces. They are meant to be contemplative, but to me… it’s about anger and frustration… these grubby tendrils of mind seeking inspiration and meaning but finding only a dark and muddy morass of regret. I actually get angry just looking at these, lol.

I don’t know why I keep these or post them up because I hate them so much but, maybe someone else might have a different experience with them.

Aerial Servant

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Aerial Servant” was completed in September 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

I was having grandiose thoughts of doing tons of illustrations based on the first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual… and then it got put on my dreaded to-do later list.

Still, a couple of results …happened.

Nature Scene

Original ACEO (3.5″ x 2.5″ format) art entitled “Nature Scene” was completed in September 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

This was vaguely inspired by the Pacific Northwest although it’s a completely fictitious location as I was just trying to create a composition that seemed to fit my intent… which was to practice my water, landscape and depth of field skills (is depth of field a skill? Maybe that’s just called “perspective?”).

Also, I guess this is a little more cloud practice too.

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Clouds #2” was completed in March 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

Clouds

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Clouds” was completed in March 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

So, this was just a little cloud practice since I hadn’t had much experience really focusing on them as well as more practice at creating depth in a landscape. This piece has a twin brother (sister) which was created at the same time right next to it on the sketch pad.

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Dismounted Fantasy Knights” was completed in March 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

This was intended to be a World of Greyhawk themed illustration in line with “old school” Dungeons & Dragons interpretations. Anyone familiar with the lore will recognize the banners, livery and the most prominent coat of arms.

Winter Demon

Original ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″ format) art entitled “Winter Demon” was completed in February 2019 using colored pencils, black ink pen and acrylic paint.

I guess this was supposed to be loosely inspired by a wendigo but… not really? Perhaps a little bit of subconcious input from the Hellraiser “hobo demon” as well, lol.

Anyhow… basically symbolic of how much I love winter, meh.
