Artwork Description

The idea behind this pic was to highlight how annoying the bicycle was back in the 1890s. Painted for the cover of a german gaming magazine.

It's subtle, but the bicycle rider has just been snagged by the statue of the founder of the park. Thanks for posting!

How did he end up in the air?

Know anywhere I can pick up a used copy for real cheap? I would love to dabble in Painter, but I wouldn't want to lay down big bucks unless I know I'll use it often.

Hehe, very funny Smile. This reminds me of 'Mulga Bill's Bicycle' by I think it was Henry Lawson? Or might have been Banjo Patterson. I really admire the way you've captured a funny moment in a time period far from our own. Great work.

Hey that statue is alive and possessed with an evil sentience!! *LOL* great work Leo, as always. Smile To answer your question about which paint programs to own, I've heard that Photoshop and painter are the best, especially when used together. Photoshop has more effects and features, but apparently Painter has a larger selection of brushes and textures. So yes, I think Painter is better for the traditional look you want to achieve. Ask Linda Bergkvist, she is the Goddess of digital art; Oh and of course, Socar Myles too. Twin Goddesses. Smile

I try to bring something fresh to each piece. It's easy to fall into a rut and just sort of recycle old ideas. I'm really glad you like it.

Ha! excellent comical composition, masterfully painted, you've certainly captured a real 19th century feeling in this one! I love all those street details and the varied colours..but the guy's face! lol! marvellous!

Art at its best.
