Crying study by Equinya
Crying study
Still trying to loosen up, trying to bridge the gap between my very emotive and abstract work and the very tight and pretty digital.

I really need to practice life drawing. This was more difficult than it needed to be. 

I was looking through some old pictures and found one my friend had taken of me dressed as Porrim, and decided to paint it. Kinda messy, kind of stylized but It’s alright.

Carving Identity II by Equinya
Carving Identity II
Tempera on tar paper

In the Carving Identity series, I used my own body’s imprint onto tar paper as a representation of a “pure identity” and used a knife to carve into the paper, creating lines that distort the image of the body until it was no longer recognizable to symbolize how every person alters themselves in an effort to be recognized or accepted.  The use of tar paper was initially incidental but has grown into something more- tar paper is used in construction and that purpose mirrors the theme of the piece, the construction of identity.

These won UTEP’s 2014 annual juried student art show’s “best drawing” award

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.

Hello! Over at :iconlow-bloods: we noticed your piece "Porrim" and thought you might like to hear about a contest we're doing, we consider both green bloods as Low-Bloods!

If you're interested in hearing more information about the contest, here is a link to the journal: low-bloods.deviantart.com/jour…

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!
