    FrogOnAZipline and George, thank you

    I'm doing a few studies referenced after photos from http://lockstock.deviantart.com/ , while also looking at 19th century paintings and trying to figure out how Bouguereau and company used color.

    I'm now quite sure that the "secret" behind their badass awesome use of color is not so much the colors itself but the values, and the modeling of form.

    sony, thank you

    A random character design. Heavily inspired by Yoko Tsuno, one of the comic book heroes of my childhood.
    Not really fanart, because the actual Yoko Tsuno character wouldn't dress that "sexy". XD

    Thank you, George

    New work, and probably my last personal painting this year, as everything else right now is commissions.

    Basically, I just wanted to paint an awesome old room with lots of awesome old stuff in it. It's the most time consuming painting I made this year; the sketch and line drawing alone took somewhere in the vicinity of 10 hours.

    As you can see in the WIP steps-

    http://i46.tinypic.com/wj9gso.jpg

    - it started out as a Tintin fanart but I lost my fangirl spirit somewhere along the way. And now it's... well, this. This thing. With the Siamese cat from Marlinspike Hall, a window view of the Sant'Ambrogio chapel in Florence, and the lamp that hangs above my parents' dinner table, and maps of Syldavia and Borduria on the wall, and 1920s technical gadgets.

    The dress is real, too. I bought it at Dawanda (the German/European equivalent of Etsy)

    Medium: Photoshop and Wacom tablet, as always.

    Amazing indeed, your latest has definitely been made with a lot of care and effort and it shows through wonderfully. Really enjoy the lighting, very dynamic and your color choices are very natural looking and not overdone. Great job overall, you should definitely be proud of this piece!

    wonderful paintings, wow - you're such a huge Tintin fan, i couldn't manage to do that many fan-arts of one character while paying as much attention to detail you do so kudos to you. the ship in post #720 is... well the whole scene is just breathtaking - wouldn't mind seeing more of those. The commissioned book covers/paintings are great, one can clearly see how work you put into those awesome studies as well, keep it up
    DRAW UNTILL IT HURTS
    AND THEN DRAW SOME MORE

    Thank you all

    Here's a new painting, a commissioned illustration for ISeeMe! Inc., USA.
    Heavily inspired by Bouguereau.

    The idea was to paint an allegory of Germany as a small child, and I chose to represent it by giving her the "Bavarian" look, one universally recognized as "typical German", even in Germany.

    The pretzel (not the small cracker, but the large, soft bread dipped in lye before baking) is also popular throughout Germany. It's said to represent two arms folded across the chest in prayer, and has been used as an emblem of bakers since at least the 12th century.

    Medium: Wacom tablet and Photoshop as usual
    Time: about 20 hours
    References: My own this time, from family photo albums. Face, and 1 hand and foot each are referenced, everything else including the background is painted from imagination.
