Spray Paint

I think I may have found my calling. I love working with spray paint and I plan on continuing in the future. For now though? I'm tired so I'm just going to kind of explain what I did. So first of all something is wrong with my scanner. It's scanning choppy and sometimes giving a sort of purple line like you see in "Tentacles".

For "Tentacles" I simply spray painted the entire canvas black, then used cardstock and cut out the actual tentacles. Then I simply (lightly) glued them to the canvas and stuck a leaf to the sprayer on some blue paint to give the "bubbles" and splats you see. Then after that I did a light graze with the blue and removed the stencil. Done.

"Why, God, why?!" was a bit more tricky. After completely ruining one canvas with gloss paint I got some matte and redid it. So the best way to describe this is to think of it as 'layers'. First I painted the blue, then I painted the white body of the bunny, following with the outline. Then i put down the carrot  stencil and painting the body orange, then the outline, and same with the leaf at the end, only green obviously. "Why, God, Why?!" took about an hour while the tentacles only took about 10 minutes. Both of these were really fun to do, and I plan on doing more.

Lilly Bryant

Lilly is an alcoholic, a thief, and a compulsive gambler. She grew up on earth with a drunken father and 6 older brothers, all of which died of either violence or foolishness. She became a stowaway to make it to Mars and is now a swindler and a bounty-thief, always waiting for someone to successfully capture a bounty alive (or dead) then either kill or incapacitate the bounty hunter and steal their claim. Lilly was once captured by a bounty hunter she stole from and left to die in the Martian badlands. She watched the martian camp and over time learned how the shaman used his tribal magic. Lilly is one of the very few humans alive who knows how to use Martian magic.
