Happy Friday Everyone!
This is a follow up post to "How I am Building an Art Licensing Portfolio". In that post I talked about painting a lot of icons. This photo post will give you a better idea of how I do it. No worries if you pull icons out of your finished paintings. I am sure there are as many ways of doing this as there are artists :-)
This collection is acrylic paint on canvas panel. Click images to view larger.
Above are a few of the icons in my "Pumpkin Snow" collection. I scan in the finished icons so I can easily use them in a variety of situations for art on products.
I have scanned in the barrel. I chose the highest dpi that the scanner
will allow me to choose. For this image that was 1,800 dpi. That means
this barrel can be almost 3 feet in size at 300 dpi. Now it is time to
turn it into a painting :-)
I like to leave some space in the painting so I can add other elements in Photoshop for variety.
Love how the blue makes this pop!
Notice the barrel on the flag - fun to change it up!
How do you create art for licensing?
