“Carolina Anole”, Daniel D. Brown, 2013, Digital Painting

I finally completed my Carolina Anole! I digitally painted this using the Procreate app on an iPad Air (such a perfect bday/christmas gift from my fiance Tamaryn!). It’s based on a photo I took in Florida. It took about a month to paint, working on it mostly during my lunch break (and a few evenings and airport sittings). There are a million details I could fix and make more realistic, but I’ve hit the point at which I just feel like calling it done.

“Tamaryn the Fairy”, Daniel D. Brown, 2013

During my fiance’s last visit to Pittsburgh, I took a bunch of photo’s of her in a clover field. This image popped into my head and I just had to make it. Her photograph was inserted into a fully modeled 3D digital enviroment in Blender, with post-processing in GIMP.

I made two versions: one in vivid color and one with a more old-timey feel.
