    Big ol' dump of Oil paintings and Illustration work (update 02/04/14)

    Shameless ninja editing in of my kickstarter project link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/500076908/awakening-the-art-of-michael-c-hayes-volume-two


    It's been awhile since I posted here last. Done all sorts of work since then. Here are some of the better ones:

    Some are personal, others are commissioned. All are oil on paper on board and vary in size from 16" by 20" to 20" by 30"

    Ooh! I love that white-haired girl with the sword (3rd to last).
    I don't know if I've seen it before.

    Lovely lovely lovely!! Every single bit of it. My favorite are the 5th and last; you've positioned them in such strange poses from unfamiliar angles, but they look so BEAUTIFUL! Wonderful choice of reference, or whatever it is that you did.

    Did you take reference pictures yourself? Or did you stumble across them and use already existing reference? I'd love to know.

    To be honest I dont really like these.
    I mean... theres no doubt to your technical skills, yeah, very effective.
    I miss the story though. These have a stunning "form" but very little "to say".
    Not that, I would do better

    Just thought you could use a honest opinnion.
