Convalescence Mural 1 by DeaDNeSS Convalescence Mural 1 by DeaDNeSS
This is one of the pictures atoxicvictory took of my mural (the entire thing is impossible to take one picture of because of size and space). It shows most of it, just not the heartbeat monitor lines and my sig and stuff. But it's the jist of the painting, so I figured it would be the best to post. Note that a good bit of this thing had to be done while standing on a ladder holding several yogurt containers of paint at a time while creepy freshmen and old people kept talking to me. I also had the challenge of painting over a very, very rough surface, with lots of little holes and grooves and such, which basically annhilated the paintbrushes I was using by the end of the whole thing. But yeah, it was done with latex wall paints and the whole thing, I think, is about ten feet in height and a lot longer than than because of the bg. Took about eight weeks, working almost every day except for Sundays for about 6 hours. Giant Bastard basically.

there's so much to say about this that there's almost no point in saying anything at all. plus someone else in this list of comments prolly said it already, oh well i'll say stuff anyway. Your sense of colour is amazing. the smoke/fog/mist/whatever-is-should-be gives your work a lot of energy, movement and rhythm. the different simulated textures are portrayed amazingly. the highlights and shadows are awesome. ah! i could just go on and on so i'll stop before i take up a million lines. incredible work.

what amazes me about this besides the obvious fact that it's incredible and huge is how well you transferred the ballpoint drawing over to painted mural. you kick ass. period.

How is it you layed down the outline for this thing? I know you didn't just wing it (because you're not a magician) so how is it you got the idea from your mind and transferred it to such a large area?

Whoa! Was this taken on a campus or something? It's still really awesome. I admire your patience and dedication in painting something that huge. At first, when I saw that it was a wall mural, I thought, "YOU DID THAT WITH BALL POINTS!?!" and I almost cried at my lack of talent. But then I felt better because it was paint. But then I thought...I can't really paint either. So either way, you win. Yay for you and your talent!
