Hello there. I recently finished a painting inspired by a character from the anime film Spirited Away. He, his name is No Face, is my favorite character in the film. But then again I have this thing for masks. ;)
So I was just drawing & sketching on paper for several days prior to painting him. I was just going to do his mask...not his cape or anything more. But Mike suggested I do the cape/cloak and a smaller face. Well I chose to do the cape but I didn't want to do a small face...not very good with small (technical) things like that.
So I painted the background light & dark purple, then painted the cape, and put the white for his mask after that. After I did the little details on his mask (which weren't drawn-mainly so MY own style would come out)...I started to think it needed something more. I thought about adding his hand...and then thought OH I HAVE GOLD PAINT! (Lightbulb over head moment!) So I did my own take on the scene where No Face asked Sen if she wanted some gold. I think it worked out. :)
