Painting for Japan + This week’s studies
Today I was painting for 14 hours on livestream for Japan as I said yesterday. Well, actually I said 12 hours but I painted for 2 more because I had some issues with my internet connection.
I painted this illustration in the 14 hours, from the very first sketches, to the final result, looking for references and talking with my viewers.
At first I thought about an illustration showing the disaster occurred in Japan last year, but I looked at some pictures of those places now and they look calm, so I worked on a different idea. Here you can see a woman with her children, building their new house (the father died) and she’s begging the sea and the radioactivity (represented by those monsters) to stay calmed down.
I want to give credit to some of my viewers that stayed with me for hours and hours. Without their support, I don’t know If I was able to continue painting for such a long time without feeling more tired (I didn’t notice how tired I was till I stopped).
I will try to upload later on youtube the video recorded because I had some issues with livestream.com that I need to check.
And I don’t want to end the week without uploading this week’s studies. Only 4 this week because two of them took me twoo days and today, with the 14 hours of painting for Japan and looking at some references for my painting I had enough.
