Local The Wandering Star Gallery with LarsER Arts work

“NEW” Gallery opening for Wandering Star

I had a really great time at Tanya Galloway and her new Gallery/community called the Wandering Star Community Gallery project. I am so looking forward to drawing there, teaching and seeing if any of my paintings will sell. Please come by and support the downtown Largo and this new business that has a great heart and compassion to do well in the community! I can see this being a huge success, so please go to her site and see if you can be involved to help, because there are still needs! Here are some pictures from the Event!

Here was my setup infront of the Gallery!

Here is my brain storm on the class:

Name: “Start your week out learning Art-Tainment (Caricatures) with Lars”
Short Description:

Week 1: First thing I will be all set up for a retail style Caricature booth with display and all. I would then draw a demonstration off a photo reference received from other fellow artist. I will have the drawing recorded and to be projected on a screen projector. They can observe the 5-7 quick Caricature in Black and white, and then another 5- minutes to add the color. I will then ask them to draw each other on the spot, get to know each other, and also so I can see the level of the students. The rest of the day talk history, foundations, and other links to references. Assignment is to do a value chart, draw shapes with shading in a medium of choice

week2: Have all your own sketch book to take notes, and sketch in to share with teacher. Importance of seeing shapes, squinting, sketching  from a photographs or the fellow student in front of you, critiques will be done with trace over lays by Lars.

week3: Demonstrate Traditional mediums, digital medium Caricatures and tricks in photshop for studio Caricatures. Home work continue to work on studio Caricature off a photo of a famous person or from photos supplied of my choosing. I will also be working a studio piece that you will be able to follow as the students work on there own work. Your final art work will be due at end of the month for grading.
week 4: I will continue to share news about the feild, share personal stories, work on private commissions right in the class that you will be able to along with, ask questions, while following my steps. You will be working on your final assignment in class, followed by me critiquing the Caricature art with a trace over lay or in photoshop showing pointers on how to improve. I encourage all my students to continue to keep me in the loop of your progress even after the class is over, but the further along you take the class with me the more advanced and harder the courses will be!

Christian Website Illustrations

(Click on image to see the right proportions, Thank You!)

Even though I have been having some real challenges with this project,  the client Berkley Badger has been a true blessing, he has his certain visions and I believe we have together made what he has envisioned! I have had alot of up and downs as far as feeling thrilled about this project, but know when it is to a point where we are both happy, it is all worth it!. Most of the work has been spent on the crowd, which we went from really hellish type crowd to a more normal somber crowd. Most of the work was also spent in the value underpainting stage, the feet, hands and the crowd was the most time consuming, and then the coloring was added. The client wanted me to find photographs online to paste and use photoshop to paint into it and to make it all work. In traditional Illustration there as been artist using collages pasted in there work to make it a more real artsy look, and I believe that is what we have achieved?  Here is  the two final Illustrations and please make sure to watch the video I made with the vine of truth! I feel truly blessed to have the chance to help glorify God thru my talents! Peace out!

Here is how I originally wanted to paint the crowd in the front!

 

Coloring collaberation

Good morning, here is a close up of a photoshop coloring I just did on top of another artist line work “Josh Mathus” (out of Europe). I was asked by my client from “Bass Angler Magazine” to color it and he is going to show recognition to both of us 🙂 I will share more once the magazine is out! Have a great day!
