“By the sweat of our brows, and the strength of our backs, and the courage of our hearts.”
My final Pirates of the Caribbean DVD mock ups for my 400 level Advanced Character Design class! I wanted to have them showing Elizabeth’s journey because I feel like she has the most character development through the three films. I also included The Black Pearl as a background element since it changes a lot too!
After my tiny rant, here’s a little w.i.p. of a new painting I’m working on. Already taking about 3 times as long as my other paintings and I’m not even halfway done. o.o Ima say there’s a little bit of improvement going on, at least mental health wise for me. I decided to paint the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio because when I was younger, she was the most mysterious and wonderful character from any Disney movie for me. I was read Buratino when I was small and when I got older, I read another version of Pinocchio, illustrated by a super wonderful artist (I can’t find the book online! Gonna keep looking), and I was very much in love with the story and characters, especially the Fairy with Turquoise Hair in the woods. Going to paint the Disney version just because I thought she needed a little spicing up. From a quick look through deviantArt, no one has painted her!
I used a pic of myself for reference and as always, painted in Krita with my Huion WH1409 tablet.
