Work Details


Credits and Resources

Quite often I forget to add descriptions to my artworks detailing the process, medium or resources used…
This happens due to the nature of my creative bursts and the odd hours they occur in and bulk uploads and constant distractions and a short term memory of a sift lol…
So here is my list of resources, credits, images used, favourite tools and mediums etc…

PS Brushes
Some of my digital works incorporate the use of various PS brushes….
Sources for these come from-
brusheezy
obsidian dawn brushes
q brushes
dezignus

Silhouette Shapes
Majority of these are either handrawn by me or created from my own personal photos… various ps brushes are often used aswell for trees, moons, stars and borders.
Occasionally though I will use old vintage silhouettes long dedicated to the public domain. (Although with these I usually always alter the image… making my versions unique in comparison to the originals)
The old vinatge silhouettes can be found in a variety of places, my favourite being
Karen Whimsys Personal Collection

Misc Images
Majority of images used in my artworks are from my own personal collection
Occasionally I do source pics from various public domain sites…
I often do this at odd hours of the night and such, and sometimes forget to write down the particular site address when saving/downloading images…
so in such cases as these, I often just state ‘sourced from public domain’
Tho, if you are curious and have alot of time on your hands, they’re bound to be in one of the sites from my list :)

Here is The List of my favourite public domain and free stock image sites -

Work Details
Now I am a big believer in working things out for oneself…. :)
Everything I have learned to do, I have learned it on my own, thru trial and error, and I am still in the midst of learning new things even now…
Learning for ones self, independant research and using initiative and creativity is an important part of being an artist.
So more often than not… I refrain from writing detailed descriptions of the process I take to create my art.
Occasionally I do divulge… and you will see a short sweet description of the work details… but it is my nature to not give away my methods :)

If any one has any questions regarding how I have done something, feel free to ask, and I will tell you depending on my mood and frame of mind at the time… I am quite open to discussion if prompted, but like I said, it is in my nature to keep my methods to myself… so dont be offended if my answers are not what you’re loooking for :)

My favourite mediums?

- Biro pens
- 6B, 4B, 2B and HB Pencils
- My cheapo point and shoot 7MP digital camera (current brand is a megxon)
- Acrylic and/or Oil paints and any brushes I’ve remembered to clean lol…
- Photoshop CS3

Fave PS Tools -
- airbrush
- burn and dodge tools
- overlay layers
- layering
- Usual Process for digital creations and photographic manipulations – layering, burning, dodging and sometimes overlays (colour, contrast, brightness, gamma etc)
- Usual Process for digital Airbrush works – similar to the process I use when using a tangible airbrush… but with a mouse…

Other mediums I use -
- charcoal
- guache
- pastel
- coloured pencil
- conte pencils
- anything thats handy :)

What is it done on?

Anything!
Stretched Canvas, Canvas board, MDF board, bits of wood, anything can be painted on!
Majority of my pen and pencil illustartions are drawn on generic brand computer printing paper, or notebook paper…
All commission work drawings and custom ordered portraits are drawn on professional fine tooth paper.

All final Artworks copyright © 2008, Dimarie Painter. Copying and displaying or redistribution of any of the images without permission from the artist is strictly prohibited.

Well… for those of you that have stayed on and read thru….
Hope its been interesting!
And thanx for all the support I’ve recieved here pursuing my passion!
Its been very much appreciated :)

Take Care Now!
Peace N Luv N all that jazz trippas….
