Are you serious? :shock: This is oil. Unbelievable. I don't have words for how good this is. Your mom looks very young. How old are you?

I give my hat down before this. It is perfect, alive, sparkling. You did a stunning work with it.

I am blown away, period. I have never seen anything quite like this, great colour and so accurate. Smoken portrait. You should be proud.

it's not that it's not a really terrific image, but, just for discussion's sake, i wish i could see some
ush strokes, or canvas coming through or something that would really say that it was painted, as opposed to "painted" in Photoshop. what i see often in these forums are pictures of such great technical ability, drawn well, perfect lighting, shadowing, coloring, and things in the background that are extraneous, like in a photo - like those little blue things behind her head. or like someone who prints out a photo on canvas and then paints over it - which is still a painting, sorta. i've done it myself of things i wanted to be perfect. i just wonder in this digital age . . .
if none of that is true of you, then you are masterful. and your mother should be proud.

Hey gnash, thanks for responding to this post!! This actually has none of the technological things that you mentioned, I like to keep it old fashioned. Its just paint and canvas. You can actually see the texture of the canvas and
ush strokes in real life, this is just a pretty large painting, and the image I uploaded is pretty small. You can see the photo I posted for size comparison. anyway, thanks again.

great!

Postby gnash » Fri Feb 01, 2008 10:25 am

sorry, guy, for doubting you. and the work behind you is yours? the dice, etc.? you look so young to be so good. but i know another guy (see ArtWanted.com - kiddolucas lee) who is just as accomplished and about your age-ish. just amazing work. i don't know how you expect us to critique you.

and, please!, DO take close-up shots sometimes of the work so we less skilled folk may examine your technique and try to emulate you. i dont' often get to go to the Louvre.

and, to my comments, i've just been to so many shows in recent years where someone had entered a digital "painting" that was only a touched up photograph printed out on canvas. it's made me very skeptical.

hey, no worries about the doubting thing, this is a forum and you are supposed to ask those kinds of questions. My name is Greg by the way, and yeah, the paintings behind me are mine as well. I have two other portraits on the Ready for the fury forum if you have some time to check them out.

What is interesting about talent to me is that it is an overflow from GOD and through us his artistic creativeness is embedded in our minds and sometimes we produce things that we know comes from him. Just my take on skills that artist have and you posses and people see and words "Try"! to explain.

Godlessness

Postby gnash » Sat Feb 02, 2008 8:06 pm

is next to righteousness.
When we start taking responsibility for not only our mistakes but also our successes, the world will be better for it. Certainly there is a well of creativity in each of us from which we draw upon in magic moments - and too bad it's not more often. Yag is drowning in his well right now!

Portrait

Postby Carmelo » Tue Feb 05, 2008 9:55 pm

A masterfully done portrait Yag. There is a great expression that comes across and is a vanguard for the warm colors.

Did you copy this from a photograph, then? It seems like the value on the right side (the dark spot with the hair) is too dark to really go with the rest of the picture?

Of course, that could be the fault of the camera/the second camera/my silly monitor....
