    Default Tyle's Chinese painting thread

    So here are some of the paintings I've done for the past couple years.








    derp chicken!@<@


    A WIP lineart for this.


    This barn owl one, and the new peacocks are my favorite paintings so far.
    Umm...yeah.



    Please do not credit me for the originality, I always have reference arts or photos to work with!

    I'll continue to put up new paintings as long as I can. Don't expect a frequent update though, Chinese painting practice only comes once a week and these paintings all require at least 3 lessons(2 hours per lesson!) to complete.


    ---
    And these are the REALLY old ones that some of you might have seen in my old art thread,might as well put them here.
    Spoiler for Older works:

    The oldest one here is at least 4 years old.











    The peacocks have always been one of the paintings I'm most proud of. >v<

    Graceful. Meticulous. Peaceful. Detailed. Great job.

    How long does it usually take for you to finish one of these? (I tried a couple before and it took me 3 hours to complete just the lining of one. I almost always mess up on the patterns on the birds too. >_<)

    ... *speechless*
    I really love the barn owl painting, as well as the last one.... Well I love all of them, to be honest! And each one takes you about a week to finish? It takes me nearly a month to complete a painting. :o

    OH MY GOSH IM NOT THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO DOES CHINESE PAINTINGS OvO!!!!!
    Thank you you two!>v<
    I'm guessing "practice makes perfect" is especially true for this - I'm been drawing (nearly nothing but!)birds for more than 4 years for now to get familiar with how their poses work

    One of the most important things to paint well is to be able to control the amount of water inside your brush(sadly I never really mastered this :c) so that your brush makes the kind of strokes you want it to. You won't like it when the ink spread all over the paper!

    And that the moisture of the paper when you paint on it is very important, too: it really affects how much the ink/color spreads so take note to that when you want clear lines instead of colors merging into each other, and vice versa.

    tl;dr - master water bending if you want to make good Chinese painting.

    ---
    My teacher normally takes around 30 minutes for tutorial, but recently she starts letting me draw the birds right away UvU
    So with that in mind, I usually spend around 2-4 hours for the lines(depending on their sizes and numbers), 2 hours for coloring and 1.5 hours for the backgrounds. At least 3 weeks, there you go.

    The peacocks took the longest of course, around 5 hours on line art, 5 hours on coloring and another 1.5 on backgrounds.

    I've never gone beyond just doing the lining (yet) but, just to make sure, it takes you 3 weeks to finish all the paintings you have here on DQ and not just one right?

    This is just glorious. If you were to sell it I'd buy this for say about $30-$40 a piece.

    @Tyemdi
    Yup. The REALLY old ones took around 1-2 weeks since they were not as complicated, but now each of the paintings all need at least 3 weeks from start to finish.

    Thanks for the comments guys, very appreciated!

    Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. Also, who's a funny faced rooster? You are, yes you are.
    In all seriousness though, I kind of want to hug the rooster.

    I've always enjoyed the art style in these types of paintings, and I always get giddy whenever I see somebody has made some of these.

    Legitimate question: do you do commissions for these?

    Thanks for the comments!

    Not doing commissions, sorry UvU
    Though you can suggest what animals I paint next - I'm focusing on insects, birds(:V) and other fluffy critters, they are all so fun to paint

    I think I have some Chinese paintings of my own lying somewhere in my house. I was only learning the skill for an exam though, so they're vastly inferior huehue.

    Consider what I've seen(I think you'd showed them to us?) I think yours are actually pretty neat. You should probably learn Chinese painting for real in your spare time :>

    Never mind the fact that Chinese painting is the only actual art I have been properly trained :V

    You're so talented, that drawing are just beautiful. All of them have kinda the same aspect, this chinese aspect; that's something hard to do.
    I would buy a poster to put on my wall, for sure.
    Congrats man!

    Is it because I'm Chinese? The fact that I've been practicing for nearly 12 years probably helps.

    Say, I know I'm not the best at drawing cats, but damn those fur are so fun to draw.




    This one is a collab piece with my friend(who owns these cats and asked me to draw them out), notice the different signature - I only drew the cats, she did the backgrounds.

    *Squeals*

    I don't know much about drawing cats, but I can sort of see a few parts of the anatomy is a bit off, or is that just me?

    I completely agree that the anatomy is off, especially the eyes from the first one - I'm still new to drawing cats so it's gonna take me awhile to get a hold of it, but I bet it's going to improve with some experiences.

    Thanks for the comment!
