I am a bit late but it's still Dec 1st somewhere, right?
Last year for #ArtAdventCalendar I posted foodie photos, fruit still lifes and such. This year I decided to challenge myself to a small collage study a day, so no finished works. You can find those on my website.
So..... expect a mess!

On mark-making: I'd been wanting to make some pattern stamps and was trying to find the right material. Then my wellington boots started to crack ... Turns out that rubber is perfect. And the other day a toilet cistern repair yielded an interesting washer which is now glued to the base of a Pringle's tube. ☺
What weird things do you use for mark-making?

For October this year we did a Simpsons Treehouse (Halloween special) themed piece EVERY day of the month. It was wild! And tough haha 😅 but so fun and worth it.
Sometimes it's cool for the brain to challenge yourself to something, see if you have the discipline to see it to completion. Doesn't always work, but amazing when it does!
Here's a video of all 31 from wifey's TikTok (https://tiktok.com/@mistressofpaint)!

Update. :D I actually like how it leaves some air if I leave the drafts as just lines. :D So I guess I will leave this one as it is and... just pick up the next paper for more glowy stuff~.
This is my latest arty project. A bit of upcycling into the bargain. Lots of texture on this and plenty of eco sparkle. ‘Out of the Blue’
Not a great photo unfortunately. Will be triple lacquered once complete, for a high shine.
This small clip of an interview with #beeple that inspired me to think about the importance of making sure those not enmeshed in the online #art / #artist world know that #digitalArt is not the same as #AIArt . All #AI """art""" is #digital art, but NOT ALL DIGITAL ART is AI. Whether you're #painting with #acrylics or #oil on a physical canvas or using a grease pen in #photoshop or #blender, it still takes effort and #creativity to create something interesting and/or visually appealing (unless it's the majority of "modern/contemporary art," which I maintain is pretentious crap 😏). Also important: regulation against AI stealing other people's work without consent for their #AIGenerated vomit, and requirements to disclose when something was created either partially or completely with AI. (but since most of Congress is geriatric and can barely figure out how to use email, I don't have much hope)
‘Harvest Moon’ Original acrylic on reclaimed unbleached cotton canvas on deep-edged pine frame (40cm x 40cm) £35
Ploughed fields- ideal for finding an evening meal. We often saw tawny and barn owls when we lived in Easter Ross.
The #bunny in the first I found while hiding from a bachelorette party.
I even kinda like how cheap and clumpy the paint is.
Used modeling paste for the 1st time. Mixed the color with the paste to see how it would come out. This is a little 5x7 practice thing. I just used it all over just to see the effects. I'm not sure I used it properly. I know you can use it just white and then paint after. Anyway this is how it came our and it's not a masterpiece but it's kinda funky. Any helpful hints are always welcome. I might do this for therapy, but id like to learn. #Artist #art #Painting #acrylics

I've had this idea for a while now to print (on a gelplate) rock textures, cut them out and make these sort of zen rock cairn collages. But the paper that can hold multiple layers of paint is too thick for collage. So I scanned the prints instead and worked in Photoshop. 💻
Now I can't decide on a background. Which, if any, would you prefer? Pink, blue, white? Or should I use a different colour altogether? Or is it shite any which way? 😆
Wanted to do a better #introduction post.
Henlo! I'm Jax 25 #Nonbinary Thembo. I work in #tech and am very excited about things. I have a (well taken care of) hoarde of animals from cats to snakes. I'm #neurodivergent #queer #polyamorous. I #paint (#oils, #acrylics and #spray) which can be found on my #redbubble #fineartsamerica #instagram (soon to be pixelfed) . I have a #pathfinder battle royale-style podcast thing. And I'm #lookingforwork I have several posts on this.
I loved this study quite much and mixed acrylics with watercolors to get intense blue colors of the mountains. And of course - Red Little Riding Hood should be sitting in the middle of the mountain. I hope that you like it!
It's as finished as I can be bothered because I'm ready to move on. Paladin is elaborate, because it's paladins. Once I get back to my computer I will make it into a printable form (clean up the edges, add flavour text etc) and it will have a super lore centric description ... Fanfiction about fake food? The finished work will have its own thread. This thread is all WIP.
It should be completed by tomorrow. Paladin is quite a job class to start with, considering that snacks shouldn't be super complicated (most job classes would be like just a skewer or a pile of fruits), but the royal guards of Uldah are not quite like most job classes.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming (mis)adventures of this awful watercolour paper lol.
