: : Hi
: : I´m really happy that you guys like my work.I´m a little suprised
: : though, it seems like you didn´t mind Indy wearing a blue shirt?
: : I have e-mailed my other paintings to Micah (except for three which I decided to save for my own site) All in all I have made 11 paintings and I´m about to start working on a new one.I won´t promise anything, but my site "Indy Art" will be on-line in a few days.
: : regards, Krede
: Krede, I didn't know you made so many pictures. I'm looking forward
: to see them all. As for the blue shirt, I thought it was part of the
: shadow-light effect. Anyway, how long do you work on such a picture,
: if I may ask? And also do you use pictures or do you just paint
: without any? Just being curious. I'm even unable to draw the fedora,
: so I really don't know. If you want to get detailed pictures of guns,
: satchel, hat, whatever I'd advise you to visit the Indy's Diggs Site.
: You'll find close-up shots there as well as detailed descriptions.
: Just thought this might be helpful.
I do use pictures when I paint, but I try not to use the most recognizable ones.
Because the most important thing (and the hardest) is making it look like Harrison Ford.
It is hard to say how long it takes me to finish a painting,it all depends on how much
time I have, inspiration and so on. The one I posted on the forum only took me about
ten hours! to do, over the course of two days. Usually it takes half a month or so.
Well, you´re right the shirt is blue because of the shadow effect but also because
I thought that if I painted it "stone white" it would blend in with the sun behind him.
I was looking for a contrast-effect so to speak.
Thanks for the info on the pictures of Indy-gear. I do own a mark VII bag myself
but I don´t have a gun and I really need some pictures of that for my next painting.
Ps: Maybe the people who are writing the forum novel would like me to
do a cover painting for their work?
