Hey, What About Major Kong? by ThePopeGFX Hey, What About Major Kong? by ThePopeGFX
Inspired by 'Dr. Strangelove', a dark satirical film about nuclear war by Stanley Kubrick. Worth watching alone for the scene that inspired this piece : D

For £40 plus postage it's yours, note me.

6" by 16", stretched canvas.

Im sure uve been asked this a billiong times,but how do u gradually fade one color into another? is it layer by layer? and if so how do u avoid the striking diferenes between the 2 colors?

I start from the lightest colour and work my through to the darkest colour. Whilst doing the gradient, I'll make sure the blend between one colour and another works, before I start painting the next.

When I want to paint the colour on more lightly, I begin to move the can away from the canvas as I sweep across it.

You're not so bad at it youself from what I can see, haha. It takes a huge amount of effort, don't you agree?

Thanks! Been at it for a few years now- its pretty addicitive.

Yeah its very time consuming- mainly in creating the stencil- making sure its sturdy and that it'll replicate the image you want to create. I usually leave a few "bridges" in and then connect the image properly by colouring in those small gaps with a sharpie.

But its totally worth the effort!

I enjoy the challenge of getting the image I want right away with just the stencil, it in turn has an effect on the design of the image but constraints create styles. However I have been known to touch up small spots with a sharpie too, if a black layer has flaked off a little ;)

Gotta say probably one of my favorite pieces out of everything you've done. Think it has a lot to do with that awesome fade.
