DJ LongPlay

DJ LongPlay is the name Phil and I gave for all the projects/artwork we collaborate on. Such as this exquisite corpse (or creature, as I like to call them) that we made for our friend Alex’s birthday. I did the top and bottom, as well at the water colouring. T’was a lot of fun to create!

Speaking of birthdays, today is Philippe’s 27th!!! Happy birthday, my love!

The final piece isn’t anything extraordinary, but the knowledge gained was well worth it. The pose turned out quite stiff, but I was more focused on trying to find ways to get a painterly quality.┬áNext time around should go a lot more smoothly, and hopefully will flow more naturally. Full portrait is under the cut.
