This one may be my new favourite! :D Staryu and Starmie have always been two of my favourite Pokemon, they kick ass and I love their designs. They were somewhat tricky to get looking decent due to being so neat and geometric in their design, but this also really lent itself to my little challenge and I think they turned out looking great! As usual I’ve included the shiny forms as a bonus :D
(As a side note, ever since I was little I’ve always thought Starmie looks like a more audacious Staryu carrying another Staryu on its back)
I need mega starmie to happen like seriously make it happen
Today’s Fine Art Friday painting: Starmie! Acrylic paint on 6”x6”x2” cradled wood panel.
I really enjoyed working on this Starmie. It was an interesting challenge since I usually can bend the body of my subject to make a dynamic composition— but I couldn’t do that due to Starmie’s rigid shape. I also made some effort to study how shadows would work (by stacking up starfish in my studio), though in the end it didn’t matter much… Good times!
Fine Art Friday is a project in which I dedicate part of my Friday to keeping my painting (and other fine art) skills from getting rusty. Many of my past Fine Art Friday paintings are available in my shop, and commissions are open if you’re aching for something custom. Just send me a note via Etsy to discuss the details!
