“Zoe” Pit Bull Boxer Mix

Here is the Beautiful Zoe I created for my cousin Rebecca.

This is Pen & Ink with Acrylics on Animation Cell.

I start with a photo then I ink the drawing then I paint

on the back of the cell like you would if you were painting

on glass from front to back.

Layering the colors and textures down you

can see the different tones I used.

Here is the final piece “Zoe” 11″ x 14″ Pen & Ink with

Acrylics on Animation Cell.

Call me & we’ll create one of your little baby!

“Tank” the sweet Pit Bull

 
Here is my Cousin Daniel’s dog “Tank” that I painted for him for his Birthday!
This is an 11″ x 14″ matted & framed Pen & Ink with Acrylics on Animation Cell.
I love doing these animation cell paintings. The materials are fun to use, and I’m always delighted by the results.
I’ve always loved drawing with the pen & ink,  you can achieve some beautiful lines with it. The only disadvantage of this technique is that you have to paint backwards so you have to think carefully what you want to see first. Also, its very important that each layer be completely dry or some of the paint will peel off. Its tricky, but once you understand how each of the materials work together its so fun.
You can see the different steps to creating one of these pieces below.
Hope you try it out. If you have any questions please let me know I would love to help  🙂
