Inspiration From HR Giger, Biomech Airbrush Painting

Here is a painting I completed at the end of February. I drew some of my inspiration from HR Giger’s airbrush paintings. This piece was completed on Bainbridge illustration board.

Getting Started on the Biomech Background

  • I completed a rough drawing/doodle of what I wanted to do. I added more to the painting as I went.
  • I painted my illustration board all black.
  • I then took a premade stencil to fill in the back squares.

  • I then used another stencil for the hoses.

  • I then added the required shading to build up values.

    Creating the Figure

  • I then took a piece of frisket paper and drew my figure, it wasn’t exact but I could correct as I went along.

  • I then lightly cut out my lines and stook the frisket to my board. This gave me some guidance to help build the painting. The drawing would then become my stencil.

  • I completely removed the interior of the frisket, so all I had was the silhouette.
  • I then filled it all in will white.
  • I then reapplied the frisket stencil.
  • I started with the head and face and gradually worked my way down.

  • I decided I wanted to give her more hair, so I then masked off the face and cut out an area for her hair.
  • I repeated step 9.

    Finishing Touches

  • I then started painting her hair in with a series of dagger strokes and lines and added shading to help with dimension.
  • I then added smoke in the back to help break the painting up even more.

I had completed the majority of this painting using an IWATA Eclipse HPCS. I used Wicked colours, Wicked Black and Wicked White.
The stencils I had used for the background I purchased from AirSick Stencils.
