Two Bison in Black and White

Painting is a passion of mine. This blog is the story behind the creation ot this particular painting called "Two Bison in Black and White" I made after my trip to the Yellowstone National Park.
This painting, made with acrylic paint, is inspired by a picture I took in the amazing Yellowstone National Park. We had excellent weather throughout the stay. Always an epic deep blue sky with near to zero clouds. But luckily, on this one morning there was fog. That is not something you hear often, do you? Fog is not something you want in a postcard picture. However, we were hiking on this National Park Trail we spotted this two young Bison gazing at us. By chance I had my point-and-shoot-camera handy so I was able to take this picture. And I forgot about it. Back home, while looking through the large amount of pictures of the trip, I rediscovered the photograph. I was so amazed by the colourlessness and the atmosphere of the picture that I decided to try to recreate the feeling with acrylic paint. I learned from this, that sometimes the pictures that are not really what you would consider beautiful are the most interesting. It is a good challenge to try to paint your own pictures so you learn what you did wrong in taking your picture and how you could improve it for the next time.

The simplicity of landscape paintings
By

Landscapes are an important part of not only paintings but of all media in the arts. As an artist I think it is important to learn and to understand the fundamentals of a good landscape painting or photograph. Even if you paint portraits, there is a lot to learn from painting landscapes.

Becoming a comic artist (part 2)
By
Vimmbox

I think before we start such a large project we should first define for ourselves what we want to do. Of course we can change our goals all the time but it is a good idea to have at least a reference, a description of what we want to achieve and how we want to make it happen. In this article I will try do things differently. It makes no sense for me just to tell you what I want to do. You would not gain anything from it. So I will list all the major question I went through to come to my conclusion and I will comment every one of them. I will look at every question from the perspective of a storyteller.

Gathering the basic ideas for my comic project was harder than I thought it would be, because I could not decide what I really wanted to do. Yes of course I had a basic direction but it stays just a direction. The route I want to take is still not very clear to me. So I started to use the idea-gathering-techniques I knew:

Darling in the Franxx Episode 11 - Anime Review

OMG! Kokoro is such a bad girl! This week’s episode is mainly focused on Mitsuru and Kokoro. Their character development is amazing. I had a grudge against Mitsuru because of his dick-move in episode 3. However, after seeing this episode I think he is in fact a good guy. Adding to that, the Kokoro x Mitsuru ship is sailing strong!

Wow! Wow! Wow! We finally get to see Meliodas very emotional. To be honest, I almost chocked up seeing the heart wrenching scenes with Liz. In my opinion, this was the best and most emotional episode of Nanatsu no Taizai yet. I am so pumped up to see the Seven Deadly Sins develop even more.
