Great Hall Toronto by annsquare
Great Hall Toronto
A piece that I'm quite proud of from last August - Great Hall in Toronto.  The condos looming behind this beautiful heritage building is meant to represent the rapid development and how it threatens to displace cultural sites around the city.  

The sketch was done with pencil on paper, and I colored in Photoshop with the lasso and gradient tools.

Thanks for followers of my page.  As you may have noticed, I have been very quiet on DeviantArt and have only updated my portfolio sporadically.  University and personal life are occupying my time completely, but I try to make time for art.  Most of my work lately have been small illustrations for my school newspaper, as well as larger illustrations for Wisdom Crieth Without magazine, which feature some amazing literary and visual arts:

I will try to do a free giveaway event later in the year that's similar to the 50 Poses Challenges, where you give me a few keywords and I produce a quick piece of your character.  

50 Poses Challenge (Closed):new: :new: :new:
School has been ridiculously busy.. I'm very sorry Aya14000, BabySponge178, TehLegendofcool and AnimeOtaku6, but I'm afraid you will need to wait for a while longer for the pictures. Thanks for being patient with me :hug:
Also, I'm planning to use 6 of the sketches for my AP Drawing Portfolio, with characters by: ElPerdedor, SketchesInMinutes, SkiM-ART, Mike16r, ppgrainbow and MiyoKitten. Please send me a message if you are NOT OK with me using these pictures. It's for schoolwork so the only people who are seeing it are the AP markers ;P

You can find your picture in this Photobucket folder: http://s1216.photobucket.com/albums/dd370/annsquare/Pose%20Challenge%20Upload/
I also replied to a few people whose pose reference file either isn't appropriate (eg. photography, other artist's painting, etc.), has a broken link, or that needs to be changed to another pose. Please check your inbox or


Some ideas I'm considering:

Color palettes
Expressions
Focus on body forms (hands, feet, head angle...)
Lighting
Human model reference

As this will be partially a practice of anatomy, I'd probably lean towards more realism style.  This time, I'll also be adding colors with watercolor and/or color pencils.

Love to hear your suggestions!

The Scientist by annsquare
The Scientist
Long time no acrylic!  I was very surprised at how much I was using this medium like watercolors, tsk tsk..  I love the fact that it's so easy to control for transparency with acrylics, and the 3D effects it can achieve for skin tones.  However, paint drying up to plastic films on my palette was a something I had to constantly battle and keep in mind!

This was a piece I painted earlier this summer for The Varsity, the oldest student newspaper at my university: thevarsity.ca/

pencil, acrylics
