Melody from the Heavens by Exileden Melody from the Heavens by Exileden
Quick acrylic illustration when I was on trip by using only three basic colors (red, blue and yellow) plus b&w.

I really recommend painting by using primitive palette of colors (and no green), it helps you to teach to understand the colors and blending.
Other than that I'm trying to finish my toltec inspired project of "Animals of Xolotlan".

Xolotlan (c) to K. Zamana (me).

oh, my gosh... such a cool illustration. Really interesting sci-fi/fantasy critter design concept. I realize it's based on some other person's idea, but the visual is so great. Cool!

Once again, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL creature =). And I very much agree on the primitive palette. In any painting class I have taken, we use only red, blue, yellow and black. Mixing def. helps get those unique and genuine colours. =)

haha those are the most basic colours you can use, with correct blending you can recreate almost any colour.
i love the use of it.
am i correct when i think the hound is based upon a doberman pintser?
cause thats the first thing i thought of when i saw it.

I recently did an acrylic painting using only those colors for an art project. It's frustrating at first, but then when it comes to mixing you know exactly what to mix with how much of each.

This picture is just so beautiful. I love looking at these creatures. :)
