Always with you

Hi there!

I thought my next painting would be Star Wars’ Darth Vader, but I decided to make a stop a little closer.

‘Always with you’ is a painting about that creepy pile of bones we all have inside of us, I find it very powerful as an image and also, I was thinking about playing with my color palette, moving it from normal creepy dark and contrast shadows to a more warm one.

So, here is my new painting!

As always, I want to know: what do you think about it?

For me, I love the result!

I made a dynamic in my Facebook for the title, asked my friends to suggest names and had some really nice ideas, when someone commented ‘Always with you’ I knew I have a winner!

So I published in some fb groups and this painting found a new home just a few hours later, but I decided to make prints of it and you can have one in my Etsy shop: https://etsy.me/38mhmir

Have fun and happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Stormtrooper

Hi there!

Here’s a new painting I have been working, this days I am trying something from my loved fandom Star Wars, this time is a Stormtrooper.

Why this subject? Well, mostly because I took it as a challenge because I had to resolve all with black, white and shades, and I am very happy with the result! Please notice that I did play a little with color in some places, not so much, just a little bit enough to get out of the monochromatic, not that it was bad but… well… artists.

So ready to see him? Here it is!

What do you think of it? Don’t you think it would look awesome printed in a t-shirt? Let me know in the comments!

The original is already sold but if you want a print please visit my #Etsy store! https://etsy.me/2UpLC81

Since I am painting in monochromatic… What if my next painting is subject mostly dark???

Rancor Monster

Do you like Star Wars?

I am absolutely in love of the first trilogy! Well, I was just a kid when the Episode IV went into movie theaters, but at the time of the Episode VI I was really excited to watch the end of the story, and in the first moments of the movie I saw the Rancor Monster… I saw something else, I saw a really organic beast, full of anger and power! I saw a monster that blew mi mind!

And then the movie just went better and better but my mind was still trapped in that basement with the monster, I even remember drawing it for a time…

Now I can make an homage! And I am very happy with it!

So here it is!

What do you think of it? I painted it as I remembered it: so brute, so anger, so strong…

Tell me what do you think in the comments and if you like it, you can buy a print in my Etsy shop https://etsy.me/36x4UL5

It’s time for the video of Gollum!

What I love of this videos is the ability to show details of my works, details otherwise will not be shown unless you look at them live.

I started doing this last year because there was this guy interested in one photo but wanted to see more details of it and a friend suggested me that was risky to send a high quality jpg because once he had it there will be no reason to buy a print since he can easily do it himself. So I came with this solution where everyone can see and enjoy the tiniests details.

Hope you like it! Tell me what do you think of it in the comments!

Here’s the video: Gollum

If you are interested in a print of it, go to my Etsy store

Enjoy!

Gollum

I am so proud of this one!

Is a commission that I really enjoyed painting it and LOVE to see! So expressive! I think there is so much of his fear and loneliness in her eyes and also the lights and shadows!!!

Oh my! I really love this one!

Here it is! Enjoy!!!

So? What do you think? Don’t you love it? Don’t you feel his struggle and pain?

I find myself watching it over and over and as I said earlier, really enjoyed doing it!

If you want a poster of it you can visit my Etsy store: https://etsy.me/2NIkL37

So, tell me in comments what do you think of it and if you love as I do consider to have a printed copy of it! That would be awesome!

Enlightenment

I think this is my last work of the year, and I am so proud of it!

It’s a painting, totally new technique for me, still think my style is with less texture but it is always nice to go beyond my comfort zone.

This painting is about the Samadhi, which is an state of meditation when people feels that is becoming one with the Universe… in this painting my idea is that the self is left behind and what’s left is nothing but remains of us.

I like it! Do you like it? If so and want to watch it in high resolution or buy me a print, you can visit https://fineartamerica.com/featured/enlightenment-joaquin-reza.html
