Untitled Mosaic Painting Progress Update #3


2014-09-09-TU-10:26 – Here is my latest progress update on my still untitled mosaic digital painting. I managed to put in a lot of time working on it this evening (around 4 hours or so). I’m not certain just yet, but I may let this photo be the last “sneak peek” that I post until I’m finished with it, but I could change my mind and post another progress picture tomorrow. I’m planning to spend the whole evening working on it as well.


Untitled Mosaic Painting Progress Update #2


2014-09-07-SU-22:36 – Hope everyone out there had a great weekend. I finished mine off this evening getting some work done on my still as yet untitled mosaic painting, and here is my progress on it so far. I actually think I have a title for this painting but I’m not 100% sure yet. There’s still time to decide as I’ve got a lot of work left to do. It’s amazing how long it’s taking for a simple design but it’s a huge image, even though you can’t really tell from this cropped demo picture I have for show and tell purpose. I like the way this is coming out so far.

In other news, I’ve set up a Go Fund Me page for myself, to help raise some money to buy a much needed new computer to do my artwork on. I’d love to get a Surface Pro 3, but a good fast laptop with lots of ram would be ok too… anything that’s faster than the laptop I have now would be great. Mine is so slow, I can hardly work on it. Any donations would be much appreciated.

Here’s a shout out to all my new followers. Thanks a bunch for following my blog. Be on the look out for my next progress update on this digital painting.


Untitled Mosaic Painting Progress Update #1


2014-09-05-FR-22:47 – So here it is, my first big painting project. It’s a circular mosaic painting I started around the first of this month. Once finished, it will be my first digital painting that I plan to offer for sale on ImageKind. Should all go as planned, it will be available in size 46″ X 60″, and maybe some smaller sizes. I drew the outline for it on my Galaxy Note 2 android phone, and I’m doing my color work on my laptop in ArtRage. I am trying to decide based on the colors I’ve chosen what to call this painting, so until I have a name for it, I’m just going to call it “untitled mosaic”… yeah I know, boring, but I’ll think of something. I’m having a lot of fun with it, but it’s going slow because working with such a large image, it really bogs my laptop down a lot. I really do need a more powerful computer to do my artwork on.

Today was my day off from work, so I decided to just stay home all day and work on this painting, and listen to some music. It’s so awesome when you can have a whole day to chill out with Pandora and make art. I’ve compiled a playlist of songs I listened to on Pandora today while working on my mosaic painting (except I didn’t really get to work on my painting due to some computer problems).

Songs Heard On Friday, September, 5th, 2014 On Today’s Dance Radio On Pandora

Note: Titles in red are songs that I enjoyed the most. Also note: I hate the way Pandora lists the song title before the artists names. For list making purposes I’d rather post the artists names first, but I don’t have the patience to edit my copy/paste lol.

At 7:12 p.m. I got bored with this stationed as it was playing songs on repeat. That crap got on my nerves. Does anyone else feel like Pandora repeats songs too much? Maybe I need to try the “put this song to sleep” thing and see if that helps. So I went over to and listened to some tunes there for the rest of the evening (and this is when I really got started putting some work on my paiting).

Here is my playlist of songs I heard on the Vocal Trance channel at this evening.

001. Madelin Zero & Adiva Feat. Madelin Zero – 2 Hearts

That’s it for this progress update. I’ve got some errands to do tomorrow, but I’m planning on working on this again for at least a couple hours I hope, so maybe I’ll have another progress update tomorrow evening.


Hello World!

2014-09-05-FR-19:46 – My name is David, and I am a digital artist, and this is my new blog where I’ll be posting updates to artwork I’m working on. I do have a main blog for my art called DTPIIXART, however I did not want to fill up that blog with progress images of my work. That blog is more of a showcase for finished artwork I’ve completed, and so because of that, it is not updated very often, so that doesn’t really help me much with gaining fans of my art. This blog, which should be updated more often I hope, is more of a place where I can show my art as it progresses from concept to finishing, as well as just blog about random things I like, or want to share. So welcome to my blog. I’ll be back later on this evening with my first progress image of a mosaic painting I’m working on.
