I painted this for my class, because the theme was Portrait. I decided to make a tribute to two artists I enjoy. Aurelio Voltaire is a singer, actor, artist and teacher. I thoroughly enjoy his music and watching his YouTube Channel's Gothic Homemaking. Don Bluth is an ex-Disney Artist who also made his own movie company that unfortunately isn't really around anymore. He worked on many Disney films and even directed a short called, "The Small One." He was also the director of "The Land Before Time" and "The Secret of NIHM." The materials used were acrylic paint, metallic acrylic paint, gel pens, foam stickers and Halloween themed toy rings. I cut the bands off and hot glued to the canvas.
