The Fireboy!

This is my 7 year old son – Dhruv

You Don’t Mess With The Fireboy

I did this using the GIMP software. Following are the steps.

First I removed the background and added some ‘electric’ hues to the pants.

Then I added some fire to the hands.

2

Added some shades to the face …

3

Added some highlights on the face and clothes. These highlights are formed due to the fire light.

4

Added an ‘X’ on the chest for that superhero look.

And added the background, some final touches and we are done.

 

Garden of Eden – color

Completed one more oil painting. This one took more than 50 hours. It came out very satisfying. Loved the look of this. The sketch in the previous  post (Garden of Eden) acted as a preliminary sketch for this painting.

The painting is done in oil on canvas (18″ x 30″).

I have kept a cool color scheme in this picture (except a dash of red for the male protagonist’s cape).

The following pictures show some detailing of the same

The Lovers

I deliberately kept the details to a minimum.
