Below are some of my absolute favorite pop arts that I've had the pleasure of painting. This style is the most time consuming, back-breaking type of painting I've ever tried ....and unfortunately i fell in love with it. My goal is to make each one look more realistic, i learn from every painting and take that knowledge onto the next. When you look closely at my pop arts you can see the tiny details that make it very different then a photo or any other style of painting, but when viewed from afar they take on the characteristics of a photograph. They can only be really truly appreciated in person, if you have a second please check them out on a desktop computer or a laptop; tiny device screens do not do art any favors.
Painting the pop arts on wood is my absolute favorite, there is something about the warm undertones of the wood that make the pop art almost look 3d and that its jumping off the 'canvas per say' at you. I find i'm able to get way more details pushed in there when i work on a wooden surface, which is why the ones i paint for myself are almost always on wood.
Eddie Vedder, Ahhh now this one was not the best experience when it came to pop arting that hair! Hair is the most complicated thing to pop art but it pays off in the end. Looking at this photo now though... i see some spots that i which i could reach though the computer screen with my brush and touch up, tiny little dots that might be a tad out of place bug me so bad!
YES!! this is a painting, by far the most intense and interact pop art i have ever done. His tattoos were immensely hard. And of coarse it just seemed logical to turn him into a zombie! For brushes, i paint my pop art with the smallest brushes i can find, they are teeny tiny, most ppl use them for individual hairs in painting but i need to do the whole piece with a brush that small.
