    Molly Bawn

    Just a bit of something I did for myself. Trying a little bit of a different approach...

    I have mixed feelings about the style of this picture. I like it, and I don't like it. It's clean and simple and the line work is well done, but I guess it's not as realistic a style as I usually prefer. I like the dim light and subdued colors, and yet I don't like it. I would like to see more like this, but not so much. Keep up the good work... It is good, at least.

    Checked your website too. All great work there, but this one has got to be my favorite.. Any hints on how you did it? Feels like quite some traditional techniques went into it..
    Post more of those!

    Very cool. Loving the style. Not so sure about the direction of every person/animal's gaze. It almost seems like the awkward elevator stare where everyone tries to avoid looking at one another. Almost.

    Nice piece, still.

    All the linework and most of the value work was done with ever-reliable pencil on paper. Then I scanned it in, coloured all that pencil-work a deep brown, and did the rest of the colouring in Ps. I'll post the original scan when I can.

    i like it a lot. Very classical, great lines and i really like composition, and the colors, WOAH. if i had to nit pick, i would say, to me, the female face doesn't match the rest, style wise.

    I definitely dig this. I think you did a fairly good job of juxtaposing peaceful serenity with implied malice- especially her face vs. the gun. My only issue is, can a goose neck bend like the one on the right is bending? I don't know one way or the other, but I do know it looks a bit awkward.

    Anyway, great work!
