where is this magical beautiful amazing place and why am I not there :’(
creaturistic asked: hi lena :) i was wondering, do you always do a underpainting before adding colour or was that only for the jennifer lawrence video? and also do you have any tips on painting noses? they are the hardest part to make look realistic for me :p
I’ve done it a few times before, but it’s only become a part of my process just recently. The only tip I have (I’m sure everyone hates me for saying this so much) but that is practice. If you do it a lot, it becomes easier, and eventually it becomes natural. No matter what it is that you are drawing. practice practice practice
artangel-xoxo asked: Hi Lena😄 I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on drawing water or give me any tips? Also how long does it take you to finish a painting and when do you post new videos?
I post videos on wednesdays (the past few weeks I’ve been really crappy at keeping that schedule) but wednesday is the day.
As far as water goes, I’m still new to it myself and don’t really know how to teach it, it was never taught to me. Just look at the shapes you see and paint them, that’s how i see it. It’s all just a bunch of colorful squiggles and shapes. The details come together gradually. I’ve been working on a water piece for like the past 4-5 months on and off… I have no idea how I would attempt to film that, the details in it are super intense. Sometimes it takes a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. :)
