mls_art Adding final touches to this graphite portrait of model Lindsey Ellingson. A great tip is to add black gel pen in the darkest areas if you're using graphite. As it soaks into the paper and rests underneath and darkens it really well. #drawing #portrait #model #woman #artcollective #artnerd2014 #realism #photorealism #hyperrealism #sketchoftheday 1w

  •   mls_art @echoesinthefog yeah Tom getting busy with it now 2w
  •   echoesinthefog Good stuff! Just haven't seen you posting much stuff about it so was wondering what you had been upto Don't suppose you know of any open art exhibitions near us that I could enter. Just looking to get my work out there a bit more and figured you might be able to point me in the right direction? Thanks 2w
  •   lilah_1999 Thats ok ◇ @mls_art 2w
  •   mls_art @echoesinthefog yeah I'm trying to keep this more art based than tattoo based. Some of my work is on the clockwork owl tattoo page on Facebook. It keeps everything in one place and allows this to be for my art practice. I will show some more in the future but they'll have to be interesting enough and not just basic things people seem to be wanting around where I work :/ 2w
  •   joshsevil Holy shit that's awesome, thanks for tagging me @jaypat74 2w
  •   jaypat74 I know right! Thought you could appreciate it :) @joshsevil 2w

mls_art Some examples of the personalized 50 limited edition prints of the 'Joy through Pain' (title given by the owner of the original) drawing. For example it reminded someone of the loss of their pet. So I put a silhoutte of a Labrador amidst the trees as if its standing on the edge of the grass. There are still some left and are available via my website www.martinlynchsmith.com

mls_art 'Laliou'
Acrylic on Canvas.
48 x 48 cm.
For sale. (Please message via fb page if interested)
Finally managed to finish this today. In all 38 hours work went into this. Never spent that long on any artwork before.
Image reference by @laliou . I'll ask her if prints are OK to be made from this.
Had to scan it in sections and merge them together...not the easiest thing to do. Acrylic paints and posca pen used and gouache/watercolour glazes used for the sea bed. #underwater #red #dress #hyperrealism #photorealism #female #woman #acrylic #painting #acrylic #artcollective #nawden #vaderarts

mls_art Creating waves (well ripples mostly) this is how I do them . I use a posca acrylic brush pen to get the highlight then smudge them with my finger...quite straightforward really. :) this will be finished tomorrow...woop! Adding mauve and green glazes to the water to get the realistic tones. Practically working in candlelight atm its 2 am. Got about another hour in it. #waves #water #sea #painting #acrylic #art_collective #art #instaart #instadaily 1mon

mls_art I might do a competition for the 1st print. Could be interesting. Im open to suggestions. The title of the piece is hand written too. Also I'm going to make each one unique by adding something to the drawing. Only small detail, but it makes each one different. #eye #eyes #drawing #waterfall #print #nawden #vaderarts #art_collective #tear #fall #art #giveaway 1mon

mls_art So happy I've nearly finished this. Keep working on it when I get the chance. Not enough hours in the day anymore! Using my posca pens again, kinda missed them. If you don't know what they are, Google them. #art_collective #acrylic #painting #girl #woman #female #underwater #water #photorealism #realism 1mon

mls_art Amazed to receive this hand carved book sculpture created by my better half @emmalloydart ,given to me as a gift, so honored ! Its based on Ammonite fossils. The book itself is only 15 x 12 cm, the detail is incredible I have no idea how intricate her work can become. Check out the other book sculptures on her IG page, some take over a year to complete. This alone took over 2 weeks. Thanks so much Emma! @emmalloydart #book #sculpture #intricate #pages #carving #scalpel #handcarved #art #art_collective #artnerd2014 #paper #sculpted #nawden #vaderarts #instaart 2mon

mls_art Back on with this painting of my friend @laliou . Adding highlights to the water, used watercolor brush pen with white acrylic. Really annoying to try and capture video with a tablet in one hand and a brush in the other!! Acrylics used. #painting #realism #water #acrylic #woman #red #dress #reflection @art_collective #art_collective _#artnerd2014 2mon

mls_art About 3 and half hours into this. The main principal is to get the tones matching to the reference photograph, I can't remember painting skin tones with so many blues. #painting #painted #hyperrealism #photorealism #water #underwater 2mon

mls_art DIY quill :-) I wanted to try to use one of these to do some kind of figurative line drawings. Had problems holding it without feeling it was going to end up breaking it, so I modded it with a disposable tattoo grip with the tip and back stem cut off. Still really light. :-) have no idea if Itl work but at least it gave me a mini project for a while haha. :-D #quill #tattoo #red #black #diy #initiative 2mon
  •   xcollywoodxfml Get the lil fishing weights and drill lil holes in the grip. Be able to add as much weight as you like. @mls_art 2mon
  •   mls_art @xcollywoodxfml thanks Nathan great idea 2mon
  •   mls_art @ig_zee haha aww thanks 2mon
  •   mls_art @kurst4 yep! I shouldn't have spent a full evening boring into the grip because it was a millimetre too small for the damn quill to go through though! Haha it proves my stubbornness , great job with your first tattoos btw! You're a natural :-) 2mon
  •   mymadamex Gorgeous 2mon
  •   artlandofme Holy sh*t i thought this was mine! I made the same quill for my friend lol 2mon
