Paintings Circa 2009

My dad found a couple of my paintings I made back in 2009. Check these out!


So these are painted on canvas with acrylic paint. I did the turtle first on a 9x13" panel. I did the 2nd one on two 9x13" panels. I am definitely not much of an artist. I found a cartoon turtle that I modified. It was a black and white image with little details. The dragon image was also a black and white picture; in addition I added the 2nd wing and its forelegs plus the colors. I've always been pretty proud of these paintings, even though I know they aren't that much of a feat. I certainly cannot do anything beyond reproducing/modifying cartoons. I definitely love it though!

Just wanted to share them with you since we found them today. I dropped my original "yay coffee" image in the bottom right corners, though I'm not even pretending that they work like a watermark. I just thought it was cute.

Love is love, no matter the back story. <3 DS

They're really cute. I like the style. Some of the most beloved characters in our culture are cute, cartoon characters. You should try to scan them and play with the images in photoshop.
