Thank you very much young lady. Great to hear that from someone with skills such as yours. Your gallery is very sharp indeed. Makes me want to get back into the realism genre a bit, which I will be doing in time. Thanks for the recognition and keep up the good work
Sweetness, that would be fun to play around with for refrence shots and ideas. I've been staying away from using ref lately, but would like to get back to it when the other work load starts to fade...
Thanks for the heads up bud
lol its cool!!
its an old school "toy" camera.... they take AWSOME pictures.. and sometimes used for special effects... cus it can take multipal exposures on the same part of the film.... u can do effects like the pic u have there.
Oh dude, there is so much I could do with it. But, none of that is going to happen. Maybe a touch or two on the back effects (that will be no more than 15-20 mins work). I have to much other shit to create to worry about something that is already up to par.........
Thanx for the props! As for my fav face... I'm kinda fancy on the right, although they are all me, so of course they're all great

This is my fav piece of yours its a very interesting concept. Is it a self portrait ? the middle one has got a great sense of innocence especially with the halo of colour around the head it gives it a god like feel and the two either side look like they are goading him as a kind of good and evil consciene.
You have got the lighting spot on in this painting and it really adds to the emotinal content.
Looking at your other works too in your gallery you really have a unique style / technique coming through great work.
You can call me wAdE Thank you so much for stoppin by and swing through my gallery Simon. It's a true honor to have you check it out. This gallery is only a small fraction of what I have laying around, but I'm glad you can appreciate what's here even though it may not be your forte'.
This is a self port yes. My intention was to portray bold iconic symbolism with no signs of subtlety. As for meaning or symbolism of the piece, I don't like to put any sort of label or metaphor on my work. I like it to speak for itself, and just simply sing. What composing it and polishing things over, many ideals of what it truly means crossed my mind. One of which was similar to what you stated. It doesn't have one meaning or narrative to me. It is about the passion of technique rendering and the conflicts we go through as an 'artist' if we put ourselves under that hideously overused, over abused. I titled it simply "Dispel", and I think it pretty much sums it up.
Yeah I personally hate canvas, just because its not a solid solid surface. Theres that bounce factor as well, that really isn't appealing for me. I'm actually doing a painting illustration right now for a friends publication project in oils on a piece of cardboard. Seems to be working great. But yeah, carboard isn't to archival, so I wouldn't recommend that if you want your work to last generations... It's just what I had laying around. I have also done oils on wood. Thick nice plywood is great actually. Try it sometime if your doing large pieces. You don't have to worry as much about the warp factor that you would deal with working large on masonite. So yeah go get some supplies and get workin on some kick ass art my man
Yeah I'm not working straight on the carboard. I'll look into that stuff though, not that I plan on working on carboard much if ever again. I basically gesso'ed the board, then put an acrylic prime color over that, so it should be last quite a while with the layered acrylic (basically plastic)...
Yeah, I wouldn't touch cardboard unless I used a Polythelene (sp?) or Polycrylic coating. Usually sold at Home Depot near the Paint section
Have you tried that?
You can work on it after it dries, you can apply it to any surface and it solidifies into a plastic cover. Smooth as Masonite, an adhesive that protects the board or whatever you're working on. Plus it's really cool to put over pencil renderings than paint over with acrylic or oils.
Make sure it dries fully though! I used it on cardboard and a large sketchpad backing before.
I checked out the show submissions for the past years. Wonderful shiz. I'll have force myself to bang out more oils. Drawing is just so much easier, cleaner, and all that jazz. Once again though, people like you inspire the hell outta me, so time to hop to it
