XP Pen Reconstructed Masterpiece Bandaged Van Gogh

This will be the actual entry to the contest, now that it’s completely painted. I debated with going with a more painterly style or a more anime like style. After playing around a bit, I decided to go with the anime style. I tried to keep the same color scheme. I added some static to the background which for some reason intensified when I resized the whole painting to a smaller size. I contemplated whether to add some blood to the piece but decided against it…

For the background, if I remember correctly (I think I learned this in art class when I was in middle school) Van Gogh was a fan of Japan. A bit of an Otaku. So I thought it would be fun to play around with that idea with the paintings in the background.

Hasta la proxima,

XP Pen Reconstructed Bandaged Van Gogh Lineart

There’s a contest currently going on by XP Pen which I hope to enter. This line art has been waiting for me to paint it for a couple of days, weeks? It’s been a while… But I should be able to start painting today.

The theme is “Reconstruct Art Masterpiece”, meaning that they want artists to get a famous masterpiece from anywhere in the world and do a parody of it, modernize, change it to our style etc. Seems like a fun theme. There doesn’t seem to be any restrictions when it comes to the number of entries, so I will probably make one or two more. We’ll see. I went with an E-girl take on Van Gogh’s bandaged ear self portrait. Except this time it’s a modern selfie.

Hasta la proxima,
