Shadowlands 3: Update 1

So here is the beginning of the third in the Shodowlands series. I begin by outlining in gray on one layer then fill in with pattern on another. The drawing is done with a Wacom tablet. Using this method of printing means that I can change things easily, providing flexibility and speed. The final image is then printed digitally onto canvas. The Shadowland series are all 1m square.

No 3 in the Shadowlands series. Drawn digitally onto computer using a Wacom tablet.

I like your Shadowlands series a lot, mainly because of the monochromatic feel to it. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

L.Holm said...

..and...(head slap) realized you said you've drawn them with on a tablet. so ignore size question : ) Fascinating to see your progress and your process!

Do you sell your works and if I can be so crass to ask, how much would these be worth. The hardest thing I find is letting go of things i create...

does that make sense...lol

Luke Maitland said...

Thanks for your comments. In reply to Abbey a lot of the price of your work depends on where you are selling it and whether there is a demand for it. The Shadowlands are big digital prints, they cost around £100 to get printed and stretched. I would charge maybe £250 for an unlimited addition version if selling direct. For an A5 ink drawing/ painting £65 framed. Pricing is tricky though as there is no hard rule to it.

Beautiful. I'm amazed that all that detail is done digitally.
