New Piece, I call it Blood Red Blonde What do you think?
Title: Blood Red Blonde
Size: 11” x 8 1/2” inches
Medium: Acrylic and colored pencil on masonite
I like the vibrant colors and ofcourse the skillful techniques used here. Hower, I feel the image should have been cropped a bit more on the right. So the legs don't just appear to be ... cut off, it looks like you ran out of canvas accidently. Hope you understand what I mean. Perhaps you should make the fade of the body into the velvet sheets a bit longer, starting around the hips at least?
Apart from that...splendid. splentit? haha..ok, sorry.

nice work jeff!
Great detail, but somehow it looks two dimensional. I initially thought that you took a photo of the painting from the side while it was laying on a table or something. Actually when I saw the thumbnail I thought it was a car hood. But it's very well done none the less.

hi i think you really managed to get the pencil and acrylics to work together!
nice overall outcome! you should really give bralt hannicart's idea a try it seems kinda awkward that her legs just seem to disappear! very nice work still!

Very nice indeed... I like how her face is pressed kind of into the bed... this makes it a much more private moment for her, rather than the cookie-cutter porno exhibitionism "I'm doing this for you, aren't you turned on" kind of thing that is everywhere.
Great sense of realism, I like the palette of colors being used and how the girl is in an erotic scene while having some inner peace in it
Nice... but who is she? What is she thinking about? Where did she come from, where is she going to? Why should I care. Who are you? Why are you here? (on the planet?) Yes.... I have said this before, probably will again.
Best of everything,
Stunning effect of motion and color.
I like it, although I'm in two minds about the legs fading away to nothing at the border. Love the hands, they're so expressive - no sausage fingers there!
hey man! I like some of the technique you've got going here, the hatching works well, and the way you handled the hair is nice.
I don't think the white/close to white blown out value on the left part of the cloth works. Cloth tends to be flatter in value and as it is now the white to the left and surrounding the head competes for attention.. If it were flatter and closer in value and color to the rest of the cloth the figure would stand out more and the work you put into the hair and head would be more easily appreciated by the viewer.
I agree with some of the earlier comments about the cropping of the legs... anyway, i enjoy your stuff and look forward to further posts
