Mario Suit 8-bit Paintings

Postby Brit.knee » Sun Feb 02, 2014 12:58 pm

First 2 of a set of 4.
Next two will be Hammer suit and either Mario in the boot, or Stone statue. Haven't quite decided x)
Done with acrylics.

These are excellent! Is this templated with painter's tape and a circle guide?

These are outstanding! How do you get such crisp lines and solid color?

This is how it all starts. All I use is a ruler and a pencil. I free handed the circles

Glad you all like them! Stoked! x)

How do you keep the pencil lines from showing through, though? When I tried even with several coats of acrylic and very light pencil marks, you could still see them :(

I usually erase the marks as I go for each section/color. Say I'm painting all the green squares, I'll erase all the lines in the green section. if you do this, you have to make sure all your other colors on the canvas are fully dry or else the eraser shavings will stick to the wet areas. I also do a few coats just to make sure. :thumbsup:
