Artwork Description

Okay, this is sort of me with long hair and an attitude, thinking "Why am I always the last one off of the ship?" I may repaint this from a different angle.

Thanks for commenting on my work, Wenche. And thanks for appreciating my twisted sense of humor.

I appriciate your personal style and sense of humour, and I enjoy very much your humourous comments to your own works and others

Thanks a bunch, Christopher. I know I have trouble with proportions at times. I'll have to work a little harder on it. Thanks for the great compliments and understanding my work. I've never heard of Buscema before. I'll have to check him out. Thanks again.

Dan, I honestly feel that this is good enough to be published as it is.
Personally, I like art that isn't perfect, but that has a high degree of style or technical abilty; otherwise, all your doing is reproducing a photograph. I think you have a lot of style and personality in your work. The only real nitpick that I've ever had is that some of your proportions have been a little off, but this can be easily corrected by using simple rules of thumb. I suggest you buy a reference book called "Dynamic Anatomy" by "Burne Hogarth", it contains hundreds of classical proportional techniques used by the masters, and I think it could really help you pull off some of those difficult poses. I respect your art because it's original and straight from the heart, created from scratch just like my favorite artists did; Buscema, Frazetta, and Boris to name a few.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Christopher. For some reason it's hard for me to view my self protrait without being super critical. I'm already thinking of doing a different one. Something better. Wish I didn't have to work for a living so I could paint all day! Thanks again for the kind words.

Thanks, Stan. I'm going to try another Viking painting. Only this time I'm going to use a photo as reference instead of the mirror. Maybe something with a little more action in it!

Thanks, Cynthia. I get my sense of humor and my eyes from my mom.

Thanks for the kind words, Anneke. I'm in the process of making the helmet larger. My younger brother pointed out that it was a bit small for my head. I tend to agree. I'll up date the painting when I finish.

Dan, very nice painting. I like the multi-colored skin tones, the drawing of the hands and the background. Looking forward to seeing your next work.

It's awesome again, as always! The wonderful skincolour and background, also the clothes and hands, all so perfectly detailed. I'm very impressed by your skills, Dan! Smile

Art at its best.
