Also known as Equinya online, I am a varied artist. Using broth traditional, digital and mixed media to render images both abstract and representational alike.
I'm about to graduate with my degree in painting. I decided it's about time that I submit some of my academic work here. It's much different from the typical digital paintings I've posted here for the last few years. All of the work is motivated by concepts that surround emotional instability and identity.


Aftermath of an Attempt: Details by Equinya
Aftermath of an Attempt: Details

When meeting new people there’s this point where the veil of being an acquaintance starts to lift and you see one another in great detail. 

At that point, I can feel the worst parts of myself bubble up to the surface- taciturn, curt and awkward. I have a way of repelling people and I’m aware of it.

It’s easy to let trauma, conflict, or illness in your past become an obstacle preventing relationships from forming. Flat and one-dimensional, becoming your ailment is unappealing, unwelcoming and it pushes people away. 

This past year I’ve met many new people and I’m glad. Slowly, but surely becoming less guarded.

I use Corel Painter essentials 4. I use color in a very traditional way, usually using complimentary and analogous color schemes, when I use an unlimited pallet, the colors get really busy/muddy very quickly. Outside of the interwebs I am a senior in college about to get my bachelors in painting, so I've had many years experimenting both physically and digitally.
My best advice for digital art is to find a picture with a color scheme you like and choose two or three colors from it and use those colors to render an image. Sometimes choosing colors from thin air will tend to make your color choices overwhelmingly bright.
Another trick is if your image is looking over-saturated, De-saturate the color and manually add brighter color to small sections.

I hope it this is helpful!
