Looking great! Everthing seems fine here.

That's so realistic it's scary
The thing really jumps out right at you

Wow! It's like the drawing is physically transforming into a real life skull!
You are a level 8 ninja and even though you have a lot of weapons sometimes your ninja moves are your most powerful.
This looks like some really time consuming stuff. What's involved in cast paintings? Are you actually applying clay to the surface and then sculpting it with tools or your hands?
I'm not sure I understand the question. This is an oil painting.
The cast is made of plaster and used in a still life set up to be painted from life. Which is what you see me doing here.
Is that helpful?
Awesome seeing the progression of the piece
f'in kickass, lookin real good... i think in the summer im gonna do a cast painting.. im only in highschool now, but before i go to college im gonna be atending the atelier near me anyways... but not the actualy structured coarse, so the cast will be on my own... hopefully i can get it to look 1/3rd as good as yours!

This is looking great, Smith. I admire the kind of patience this must take! How thick is the paint on the surface right now? It looks like you're keeping it fairly thin, just enough to cover and blend a little?
Been checking your progress on this since you started the thread, but thought i would comment....this is absolutely great work ! i am looking forward to the finished article, i presume that you are at an atelier ?
Didn't take any photos tonight but did want to respond.
B. Eyes: You're in PA right? Where and with whom are you going to study, Shanks, Waichulus?? Make sure you listen to what they say and just as important do what they tell you to do and how they tell you to do it.
Gorilla: Yes the paint is very thin for the most part but with enough coverage to avoid hue or value problems.
Warhead: Thanks for posting. Yes, I study with Douglas Flynt. You might be interested in a recent post of his in the "Finished Section". It's headed as Fencing Jacket.
Fantastic, I'm in awe
