    You sir IMHO are a highly talented individual! I practice almost every day, I hope some day I'm as good as you!

    One mild criticism tho - would it kill ya to put an elf or two in there? I just love elves and i thnki you could really paint some neat looking ones!

    EXCELSIOR!

    Arkdaddy- sucks couldn't have made it this weekend. I tried, but failed..like most of my endeavors in life *whaaaaa boo hoo* I heard it was a blast though.

    - Looking at those oils it seems as if you are trying to treat them as watercolors. That's not entirely impossible...if ya wanna go that route. I know I mentioned Bernie Fuchs approach to you Thursday..and I can kinda see that working for you. Most of his paintings are just super thinned out oils (to the consistency of watercolor) on canvas over a solid drawing. Could be something to experiment with. I just think you have a natural tendency to use mediums in a very 'wet' state. I dunno...maybe I'm retarded...?

    I'd say more about the life watercolors but folks here are gonna think either
    1.) I'm on your payroll or
    2.) I have a crush on you
    Not that I don't, but everyone doesn't need to know about it. I'll say it one more time - i love your watercolors!

    Medusa is looking sweet. Take your time with that sweetheart. I think I figured out what you are doing with that crazy ghetto light -table. Good luck with that bro. Looking forward to seeing that finished. Oh -did you remember to send stuff to Spectrum?

    Scott - i thought i was the king of beating myself up. cut that shit out. we're both gonna make it this year.
    I'm still stupified by oils. and the best ones I painted to date were very loose and made with washes and looked like watercolors. plus the ones i posted were very quick ones. the house took under an hour, and the trees were about 20 minutes.

    here's a scan of the new Medusa watercolor:

    Arkady!!! yeah! this looks awesome, the snakes are great I love it!
    I have one suggestion, get rid of the ribbed part of the sketchbook, and add more paper above her head because she looks squashed. You can fix that in Photoshop with your cool new technique.
    this is looking great, you turning this in to spectrum? I hope so. Mine is getting there late too, I hope they accept it, :/
    nice use of big shape dude,

    tensai - ya dude, that's the plan evenually. I know a dude here in NY that sells his huge watercolors for as much as $75,000. and they're not that much better than mine. Still saving up for a Size 50 Kolinski. If you ever come to NY, please get me one of the monster Sumi brushed that are only available in your neck of the woods. I'll totally pay you back.
    no kidding - ive been looking out for those massive brooms that monks do their newyears calligraphy with. for the same money i might be able to buy a house though. im in NY quite often, i can easily drop a couple of those badboys off...
    about last update - her body looks banging, but here head looks a bit squashed. like you ran out of space or something. yesterdays batch is looking

    Is this beautiful portrait inspired by Medusa Gorgon? Wow, I'm shocked, well that's some thinking out of the box. She is gorgeous. Such a nice feeling of flesh and young body . I would personally stand up for her throwing the national hero Perseus from her . She is a gem.

    i know, the desire is too strong. I want to throw in some purples on the left arm becasue right now it's blending in with the background. and i want to add more details to the snakes and blend it better with the rest of the figure (more reds and skin tones) and better define the cloth. It's going out ASAP tomorrow

    I could see makeing the snakes RED tongues shoot out and flicker, definitley the one in sillouquette on top of her head, and the arm I like it pushed back. just think about it for a while before you add anything else. I like it now, and some areas aren't defined but that is fine because we already know what they are, so no point in even rendering it(the arm I am talking about). Don't put tooo much red in the snakes, maybe just the tonues all saturated red or something, that will be enough I think. serious this is looking good all those little things are candy and are the hardest to put in. just be frugal with the them.
    test where you want to put the color frist I suggest in photoshop so when you go to watercolor you can be confident where the color is going. sorry I'm on your ass about this painting. It is turning out great and I want to see it in Spectrum, so people can see your beautiful watercolors, try not to stress about it , just think about it.

    tiff, i agree.
    my only real problem is the green areas of the hair and loin cloth stand out too much from the rest of the piece. there are no greens anywhere else to tie the illustration together. i want to throw in a little of the reds and purples of the skin in the hair just for harmony's sake. I'll throw the new version on the ghetto light table tonight, after the SoI and do a new painting and then combine it with what i already have.


    everyone else that replied, thanks. i'll address you all individually once i have something new to post.
