Mad Day Out by jossujb Mad Day Out by jossujb
There we go! You might have seen the work-in-progress picture , and this is the final product.

I'm actually ridiculously pleased, this is the fort time in weeks I got proper flow going on, and this came out with ease. Though or course there's some parts that aren't exatly perfect, but in overall I think I reached what I meant. Slight toony feel to it, I definitely think I'm way more relaxed when I'm not insisting on perfect.

Though mayyyyybe there's something I could have done to Paul's face a bit more... he had such a weird expression on the reference and this look kinda amused me while painting but I dunno... maybe it's a bit too derpy. But kinda goes well together with George's grin xD

But the biggest poin is that this is my art-trade with *Flying-Glove, she did this magnificent picture based on the video for Rain, which btw is my favorite Beatles-video. Mainly because Rigo is such a darling in it, eveybody else has their instruments at hand and Ringo just kinda hangs around looking lost and/or bored, but the footage insists focusing on him. Like rest of the gang just together decided this is gonna be Ringo-appreciationg-hour.
Plus everyone has cool shades. And Paul has just chipped his front tooth in a accident. And the song itself is awesome. has the best Ringo-drumming of all songs. I've heard him say in interviews that day in the studio was just perfect, he had perfect flow going on and he hasn't since them been able to repeat the performance the same. You can hear the magic^^

Yeah, but enough about Rain, my share of the trade was to do something based on Mad Day Out-photos, which is probably the most colourful and fun photoshoot with The Beatles ever. It's probably because they were so tense and arguing at the studio, and then they just went out, forgot about the album for a day, forgot all the rest of the problems and just had plenty of fun. And you can see it they're into it^^ In some Beatles photos (especially during mop-top era) folks just push random crap at their hands and you can see they're pretty clueless how to pose. But this day seems just special <3

Sometimes I think Beatles could have stayed together longer if they seriously would have taken regular days off and keeping good holidays in between, but you know... they all had their fierce creative mood at the same time, expectations growing high and desire for perfection was pressuring so... well, you know what happened. During those last years they produced a lot, but burned to whole thing to the very end. But then again, it was /glorious/ run.

Another thing about Mad Day Out is their fab clothes. Ringo especially. I've said earlier that frizzy yellow shirt is probably my favorite thing ever. George apparently changed his wardrobe like three times during the day xD

I picked this [link] one as referense since Geoge is smiling in it too. Though I seem to have given him way more devilish smile than he actually had, but I think that's kinda in character xD Georgie-boy seems to smile when ever rest of them aren't and vice versa xD And as I said Paul turned out... well, let just say I really liked him while painting, I'm not so sure anymore. John was hard becaue of the glasses and Ringo... well, Rings is luv.

I find that sitting on grass even the sign say don't rather funny. That's probably the most harmless way to rebel ever.

So, yeah. The Beatles. It's always about The Beatles, love them so much.

Made with acrylics on canvas, etc.

I love this! And you seem to love The Beatles and Star Trek -- someone after my own heart! Excellent painting - I especially love George -sweet and mildly sinister at the same time! (although Paul's smile is even creepier!) Just love it, thanks for sharing.
(btw, I just signed up on DeviatArt, and I'll be posting my Trek collages soon)

Anyway, this is just delightful, and thanks for letting us know about Flying-Glove too! Wonderful!

Indeed I love bothe The Beatles and Star Trek, even though I haven't done any new trek-art lately. But it's always on my mind, on the background y'know.

But thank you, I was rather worried that paul would be too creepy, but then again, that's just paul for ya. And George to me always seems to be bit dinister when he smiles. It must be that he often frowns when others are smiling and vice versa.

Yey, fans for Glove, she's awesome and nice <3

If you're new in the dA you should probably get into some groups, like Star Trek-groups and stuff so people can see your stuff then better when you upload^^

Thank you for your quick and thoughtful response! Yes, I'm checking the Trek groups, and looking into submitting my Trek collages, just figuring it all out!

Beatle-wise, George was forever my favorite, a beautiful man inside and out and you've captured that! Keep up the great work!

Lol, you are probably right xD Though Paul has the need to be in centre of the attention so I guess it kinda fits.

I'm also laughing at Paul all the time. Thpugh I do wonder if it's slightly too derpy, it might look weird out of context... but I can't help it, I goggled so much while painting and just decided to leave it that way. Paul does those derp-faces so much indeed xD

Oh my goodness, Jossu, this is great! It's so bright and happy and perfectly captures the mood of the Mad Day Out. And those faces, they're wonderful! I was going to tell you whose smile was my favorite, but I can't- I love them all. George looks so devilish, Paul is doing a cute Paul face, John looks like someone just told him the funniest joke in the world, and Ringo is just so adorable. I love how well your style blends with the fun and free-spirited Mad Day Out, it's perfect. And I really like the way you added little hints of yellow in George and Paul's clothes, it looks really cool. :D

This is wonderful, well worth the year's wait. Thank you so much!

I'm not so sure about Paul's face though... I giggled like a madman when I got it ready, he just pulls those sort of weird expressions all the time. But someone can point out that he might look too weird right now... but I have no heart to ficx it right now at least I love herp-derp too much. But I'm grad you ended up liking it, that's pretty much the thing I hoped.

Mad day out is the day of happiness and love <3 No tears and pain, juts sun and fun^^

Haha, but it looks so much like Paul, I love it! He wouldn't be Paul without those weird faces.

Indeed, indeed~:heart: that's why it's my favorite photo shoot. Not to mention that all the boys look incredibly handsome on that day. :love:

Also, how much do you think I could buy this painting and get it shipped to the USA for?

Indeed! Paul is has the best little weird faces <3

Hmm, what could I say, well yousually it's material+time+shipping, though I haven't ever posted anything outside EU, so I'm not sure how much it is, but it's safe to assume it's about 10 e or less. I've sold painting with that size and level of detail semweher aroun 50 euros + posting so it's about 60 e, but if that's too much we can always haggle^^ I made this piece for you anyway, I'm not likely to sell it to enyone else.

I love his weird faces so much. Have you seen this tumblr? It's all about Paul's hyperactive weird faces: [link]

Hmm... 60 e is a bit steep for me. 35-40 e is more in the neighborhood of what I can afford, but if that's not enough I completely understand. ^^

It looks like Paul is always going way more sillier than rest of them if give enough time. Which is weird because in the interviews it seems he keeps seriousness up longer.

40 e is completely fine, since you did artwork back to be all. And it's not like I'm needing it to lie around my apartment, it's way better if it's owned by someone who cares. You use paypal? If you're still interested you can note me with your address and I'll send it to you on monday or so.

I think Paul just wants to be the center of attention in all photos, haha. And if making weird faces is how he needs to do it, he will make weird faces! :D

All right, I got your invoice. Can't wait to get the painting! :D
