    Alright, one more for now... I just finished it a little bit ago, it didn't work out perfectly as I positioned myself and my fiance a little off in one of the shots causing her to be covered up in another, but overall it worked out well.

    That is incredible, I thought that it was a photograph... but more real. The way that you captured the different levels of reflectivity and diffusion make it come to life.

    Thanks so much for the kind words everyone!
    I think I feel like a million bucks now - especially after hearing that from some pretty talented artists on this thread.

    Lukas, I like the second one of your older drawings alot.
    The whispy, sketchy shading looks brilliant.

    And Floey - I love the recurring silhouette work.

    That is some superb carving, I posted my kachina dolls in a previous thread, nice to see another carver! I was going to give it a go with some technique like that.
     
  13. Hi MCPRE
    Actually...my artwork is more like deep relief engravings. I draw the subjects...then relieve the background..detail and shape..all with a dremel. Then stain and poly.
    Thanks

    Goodness, thanks again, everyone! I hardly know what to say.
    I forgot to include the reference in my first post...it's always interesting to compare the reference with the finished piece and here I think they're definitely easy to tell apart. Which I like. =P

    Flute, I have to say I usually don’t take commissions but I am known to sometimes make exceptions, so you’re welcome to PM me if you want to talk about it.

    Felt like drawing today...

    And this is what came out....

    [​IMG]

    I´ve done several version of this drawing, and even ventured to use water and oil colors, using almost the same elements every time.I´ve been drawing this character for many years (a good way to keep me awake at school). This is of course just a sketch...

    Hey gang.
    Here is a new one I did for the annual California Screamin' show at Gasoline Gallery in El Segundo California.
    I'm particularly happy with this piece.
    It is oil on canvas, 16 x 20.
    I just finished it so it isnt in a frame yet.
    In fact the paint is still wet.
    Hope you dig it.
