Kat on Six Panels by ARoulette Kat on Six Panels by ARoulette
For this piece I built six panels and painted my friend Kat on each one. I wanted to experiment with showing more movement. Iíve been taking people pictures like 20 times and watching how they move. I got best in show at Scholastics for this piece. Oil on panel, each is 7"x7" and about 4" deep, they are almost like little cubes.

Great idea. I really like the motion throughout the pictures, its not like she's posing for the pictures. I like the hands in the third one, lol, hands are cool :P

You sir are a damn good painter!
Arisashi Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2006
this is great fun to look at and create your own storyline for! I think she is an impatient person, and needs human contact. Silence is too much to take, and sitting still is even worse. She gets extremly figity and even drinking becomes an act that needs more attention then she's giveing it. haha I picture her slamming the table repeatedly with the pam of her hand while takeing a long drink. maybe she's playing a game withherself? seeing if she can get threw a whole container in one go.

All of your paintings and drawing are beautiful! and so very skilled.

kikyozk Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005
Gah, yes I knew this looked familiar..
I totally saw those in one of those little Scholastic magazines that our English teacher used to give us.
nephely Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
excellent i like the third one most; the way the hand looks, full of emotions and so alive:heart::heart:

I've never seen anything like this before. Amazing. :faint:
blugoogirl Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005
I love your work you have so much skill and talent! Love the ideo behind this piece. You're paintings are so lifelike and real, they could be the photographs you took. When you paint it looks like a photograph, only you've added more life and character :D
Linteephelien Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005
beautiful ..
Aurelia24 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005
This is simply breathtaking.
I gave up painting long long ago, but I just might get back at it.
You're a superb painter, probably the best I've seen here on dev.
Keep up the amazing work, I'll be on a watchout for you.
ryuuko Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2005
I never realized paint could be so sketchy. Very awesome.
roses4you Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2005
can i call u motion capture master?
cheneymac Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2005
That is pretty damn sweet. I bet that took a little while to sketch out each position and acturately reflect the lighting to properly show each panel in relation to each other. Great work.

my gosh this is too nice.

I've been meaning to comment on this for a while and well, finally...

The fluidity of movement is well captured. I am quite taken by the detail and the feeling in each panel. It's no wonder you received "Best In Show" (congratulations on that!). You move definitely achieved your goal of showing more movement. Particularly emotive are Kat's hands and how they are still in one "frame" and a blur in the next. The idea was well exectuted and, as always, I am impressed with your skill with oils.

Very amazing, I love all the movement in it. All the panels together formed an amazing composition.
gin-kitsune Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2005
i like it. it's artistic in a way. it'll be cool just to have a bunch of those lined up on a wall.
unintendedlove Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2005
wow...freakin' wow. Beautiful peice of work. The way you captured her body languages is perfect. So expressive!
midnightsky-soul Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2005   Interface Designer
looks awesome. inspiring. i won at scholastic last year, but not best in show . congrats
Madinina-ruff Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2005   Traditional Artist
I love the way the images seem like they were caught in action and are trapped in the painting(Hoping Im not too confusing) great job! ^_^
runnerup Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2005
Simply stunning work, as usual. The composition and change of movement, expression, etc. would be great in a picture, but as a painting it's even more spectacular. You are an amazing artist. I look forward to seeing your deviations in my watch.

Oh my goodness.

I got this comment from a friend, it applies to this as well; "it looks like a contact sheet or a film negative".
ARoulette Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2005  Professional Traditional Artist
yeah it does look like that, thanks for the comment. :D
i0un Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2005
no prob
JKnox Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
This piece is wonderful. The way you capture motion is amazing. At first i didn't like it but it really grew on me. Sill my favorite panels are 1 and 3 because of the emotion they convey.
wendyfromthewest Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2005
god, the hands in that third and fourth one
acidphish Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2005
this is a really neat piece, because it portrays life so well. I love how playful it is, and I love her hands throughout. :)
