    Whoa, the second one is phenomenal. Is the robot holding two orange flavored ice cream cones? It's left leg seems slightly bent and off the walking course but I don't think you should change anything - great job on it and welcome to CA, astro.

    Keep doing you

    Your foot problem is perspective. The next time you do a footprint or a pic with this type of situation , just watch out for it, and use a type rule of thumb. Besides that I think it looks good.

    Hello! Hey, thanks for your note. Respect BTW with the gouache. Personal taste here but the first is my pic as the strongest. The pathos comes through most clearly on this one and the handling of media has a nice range from the detailed figure to the loose elements in the background. Hope to see more.

    Thanks!

    Bill:Thanks man! Any news on that job?

    Slobosaurus:Thanks so much for your help! I think I see what you mean about the perspective, I have to work on that and the figure has tangents and weird overlaps....I think It has more than one horizon line and one line on the chair goes to a diff VP than the other line on the same side!?! No wonder she's so depressed...

    Here's a digrame:

    Hahah, another really impressive painting astro. The tree root growth could be a tad more realistic to give the picture a more complete tone. Those trees in the backround - you have my nod of approval.

    Yes, that looks better. There's a nice somewhat ethereal quality to these pictures; i'm already waiting for the next.

    hey there!

    Really nice coloring, like the girl in the wind most. They have all a dreamy feeling attached to it. As said above, some perspective issues in the robot picture....

    Good start! Keep it up

    Cheers
