Seven Creatures For Seven Seas
Lonnie C Tapia
Drawing - Prisma Colors / Colored Pencils
Search for the seven creatures that swirl together for your viewing pleasure. 135 hours of layering and blending these colors to produce this image. To create many of these colors requires as many as 4 colors blended together to reach the desired color. This became a very complicated color-theory project. The most creative and free style of art that I produce. It is simply fun to create like this. I begin with no pre-conceived idea of the final appearance. I start by drawing or painting the lines all at one time. The lines for a drawing require about 4 minutes, and for a painting it requires about 8 minutes, primary lines are done very quickly; however the connecting of detail lines take more time. The finish time for the black and white drawings is usually between 80 and 90 hours, color requires much more time. Paintings will take around 40 to 90 hours of finish time. To keep it creative, spontaneous, and instinctive, most of the primary lines are done with my eyes closed. The most important aspect of this type of art...Turn it different ways, and you will see different things. Interactive!
