Stormrunner by silvermoonnw Stormrunner by silvermoonnw
This started off as a random sketch on one of my Livestreaming sessions. I liked it, and hubby pointed out that I should do some clouds or something. So, here's clouds or something. Took approximately 40hrs of work from start to finish.

Technical information: 14x18" acrylics on board.

For sale, inquire for details.

dragon is missing 1 hand and it looks out if place because you are lacking on light sources. Why does it have a white border?

Amazing lesson that this is low budget acrylics on low budget board, inspiring!

silvermoonnw Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
Acrylics are not low budget for the professional grade paints. They run $8-9 a tube, which is the same as oils.
Reply
:iconbluebrothers:
bluebrothers Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012
Haha ok I am teachable, in a teachable disposition I am most honest to admit that
8 dollars for just a tube that I would [ab]use in one 5 day project and reuse
in a timespan of a month might add up to quit an expense in a year.
I went threw painting lessons with mostly acrylics in artschool but never focused on
qualifying for the "professional grade".
Your work is still inspiring though, they remember me making amazing ink drawings
for a affordable budget. Might just scan them one day and upload to DA.
What is your chief aim in the next 2-5 years with your art?

I'd like to be at least at a point where I am recognized for my work. Other than that, I never really thought about it.

:iconbluebrothers:
bluebrothers Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
If you had a 24 hours a week job and 20 loyal fans
who follow you and admire your work, would that qualify?
Or does recognition means a group of fans of a bigger quantity?

silvermoonnw Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012
I'm more talking about recognized as a name in fantasy artwork by the general public. This is just one step on a long journey. And I have a 40hr a week job, along with a fulltime job as a mom. Easier said than done to paint all the time otherwise I would be.

Thanks for the response! Besides the job and being a mom
you decide the rules of the game of life. Don't make them tooo hard,
so you always have the feeling that you are winning.

Beautiful work. The dragoon definitely looks like he is running (flying) in front of a storm front, but he also looks like this is a good thing! Love the muted palette in this piece. And congrats on the DD!
