      You should paint the entire RT staff and send the studio the portraits.

        Good idea! I've been in the process of doing that for the last two years.

      is that the Halloween painting?
      kinda reminds me of the ghost thing from house on haunted hill... the new one, not the original with Mr. Price

        yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...
        1st Inf Div HQ just went back, and you can bet more are going...

        cant win a war without ground troops, everyone knows this (except Washington..), you need ground troops to occupy what you take to deny it from the enemy, kinda like punching a bucket of water, the air strikes scatter ISIS (the water) but when we stop or pullback they are fluid and just fill back in, we need forces to hold what we punch so that there is less and less for them to stand on.yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...

      What exactly goes into your style? What form do you use to get your works to look like they do?

      • SailorGirl81 Starving Artist

        1 year ago

        Thanks! Yes, they're all physical with the exception of a couple of digital ones of RT staff.

      • MrJacinto Hey I'm Grump

        1 year ago

        All those portraits are physical media? Wow, impressive work I must say.

      • SailorGirl81 Starving Artist

        1 year ago

        Hi, thanks for the question!

        I work almost entirely in physical media, especially for portraits (although I do some digital for non-portraits)

        I start by preparing a support. Lately I've been using mat-board. Preparation consists of doing random stuff to it. I might use paint spritzers, collage, layer multiple stencils, smear leftover paint or anything else I feel like doing including combinations of all of the above. Sometimes I have a color scheme I want to use.

        When it comes time to paint a portrait I go through the already prepared supports and pick one or prepare a new one specifically for that portrait if none of them appeal to me on that particular day.

        Right now I'm using acrylic paint or other water media although I also work in oils.

  • Questions answered by SailorGirl81

    It's still Red Vs Blue.


    I'm enjoying RWBY (although I'm not as emotionally invested in it as some people). I like the Let's Plays in Achievement Hunter (GTA and Minecraft particularly). Oh, and RTAA, I LOVE what Jordan does with deceptively "simple" animation.

    Good question! I definitely plan the more complicated paintings and think about how I'm going to go about the process and how I want the finished piece to look. For one person portraits I'm more spontaneous and open to happy accidents.
